    “How do you tell a communist?
    Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin.

    And how do you tell an anti-Communist?
    It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.”

    Eric . . . . ever watch a Thomas Sowell video ?

    Heralded as one of the most brilliant free-market economists and social theorists of his time, Sowell possesses an undeniably staggering legacy: The conservative anti-intellectual has published as many as 50 books, wrote a nationally syndicated column and dazzled television audiences in numerous debates and appearances in which he would unequivocally destroy the left’s talking points with his most deadly weapon — common sense.

    His work has spread to younger generations as well. A quick search of Sowell on YouTube — whose largest demographic of users is 18-24-year-olds — yields a plethora of videos that have garnered hundreds of thousands — and sometimes even millions — of views.

    “Self-avowed Marxist” ? ? ? lol

    “The goal of socialism is communism.” – Vladimir Lenin

    My father was an old CCF & NDP partisan . . . I woke up in my late 20s when I met an NDP Premier who told me he knew what my needs were . . .

    Every NDP administration has left the situation they took over in much worse shape when they are finally kicked to the curb. For decades they ran Saskatchewan into the Ground . . . Twice they flushed BC and are in the process of doing it again!

    Just like there has never been a successful Marxist/socialist country, there had never been a successful NDP administration in Canada EVER !

    Eric’s understanding of Economics is on par with Adrian Dix & Horgan . . .

    PS: Tump was a successful Businessman with an Economics Degree guys . . . and he was up against “Politicians” who are some of the DUMBEST among us!
    He was the ONLY President who Lost Money being in the White House, most like the Klintons & Obamas became multi-millionaires during their stints.
    Trump in 3 years created the Best US Economy in 50 years, the Lowest Minority Unemployment EVER . . . and the FakeStream Media in Canada completely ignored!

    NDP controlled by Big Enviro, Marxist Professors & Union management.

    Nov 3 2020 . . . did you guys miss the Biggest Election Fraud in history?
    Media & Dems going nuts at Arizona, Georgia manual recounts today.

    Perhaps you could have a show one day and explain how in the light of Gorebull Warming . . . how does moving Millions of People from temperate climates near the equator to Western Democracies in the Northern Hemisphere where their Karbon Footprints are going to increase 1000s of time is prudent in the world of Karbon Taxes & Windmills?

    Inflation & high costs in Canada . . . would that have anything to do with the almost Trillion Dollars our Crime Minister has injected into the Economy?

    Dr. Bonnie has been a joke . . . like her two compadres Dix & Horgan they IGNORED the Science.

    The nonsense opening scenario goes on till September . . . what happens in September?
    Flu Season starts again . . .

    We knew over a year ago that the healthy under 60 crowd had a survival rate well over 99%.
    The under 18 group was 99.998% . . . yet they closed schools for some insane reason?

    The average age of the deceased was well over 70 . . . so why didn’t the BC Govt concentrate on keeping that group safe?

    Horgan & company dropped the ball . . . more BC citizens died of Drug Overdoses, Suicides, lack of access to Healthcare & Treatments than died from the Wuhan Flu.

    Some jurisdictions got it right . . . Swede, Florida, South Dakota . . . ALL are quite normal today.

WATCH: Family evicted from Ronald McDonald House talks about their emotional ordeal

The Western Standard had the opportunity to connect with Austin Furgason for an exclusive update.




The Furgason family, including their four-year-old son Jack — currently undergoing cancer treatment at the BC Children’s Hospital — were given three weeks‘ notice to vacate Vancouver’s Ronald McDonald House (RMH) based on their vaccine status.

Father Austin, mother Lindsey, Jack and their two-year-old son Lewis had been staying at the RMH since October but with the update to the RMC BC & Yukon COVID-19 policy, all visitors, guests and staff are required to be fully vaccinated to stay at the house.

Austin took to Facebook with a recorded interaction with administration at the house and the post went viral. The family saw an overwhelming amount of support including a GoFundMe page that now sits just shy of $173K.

But the swell of media coverage — including coverage in the US from Fox News and other popular podcasters and radio hosts and from the UK news site Daily Mail polarized views on the issue which brought the “hate,” said Austin.

RMH BC & Yukon released a statement to the Western Standard that said:

“On the recommendation of our local public health unit, the 14-member Board of Directors made the decision to mandate vaccinations for everyone working, visiting, or staying at RMH BC & Yukon to ensure we continue to meet the highest standards of health and safety and protect the vulnerable population of sick children we serve in congregate settings and limit the spread of COVID-19 and its variants,” said RMH BC & Yukon in a statement to the Western Standard.”

RMH also indicated its team was in contact with the family to support “arrangements for alternative accommodations.”

Some are applauding RMH for its policy aimed at keeping at-risk patients safe while others have slammed the charity for being discriminatory and heartless for leaving families in need without a place to stay.

The Furgason family has been advised the Easter Seals House has accepted them and will soon be moving their family of four to the new location just down the road from RMH.

The Western Standard had the opportunity to connect with Austin for an exclusive update on the family’s emotional ordeal.
