WS EDITORIAL: Westerners should vote their conscience

We break down the options for Westerners this election.

This Editorial was jointly written by the Editorial Board of the Western Standard Most of the old legacy newspapers make a big show about their editorial board’s official endorsement of a candidate or party before election day.  We think it’s doubtful anybody much cares what an unnamed group of columnists, editors and publishers tell people how to vote, so we’ll spare you the sanc

    “[F]or many voters, the priority is voting out Justin Trudeau regardless of how weak his primary opponent may be. This is the “lesser evils” argument, and it shouldn’t be dismissed out of hand” and “none of the major parties deserve the unquestioning support of Westerners” are both absolutely true.
    There is good reason to want Trudeau out. But with O’Toole in, how much better off will the West be? A vote for Bernier or Hill may be a vote for Trudeau, but a vote for O’Toole is still a vote for O’Toole. Ask yourself how much better that is.

    Thank you for the balanced, careful article. Westerners have a tough choice. Although I favor the PPC (and Western independence), I can see how people are tempted by O’Toole.

    I disagree. If you don’t know who to vote for or are unsatisfied with the options, DO VOTE! But spoil your ballot. Every election the low voter turnout is shrugged off as people who don’t care to participate instead of being recorded as large numbers of unhappy people who are not satisfied with their options. A spoiled ballot gets counted, and makes it very clear the person is unhappy with the options provided. Always vote!

    The option that some Westerners believe makes a ton of sense is to support the maverick party an the peoples party.Since you only get to vote once . Your best bet is at the federal election vote the peoples party and when the provincial election comes up vote the maverick party and kick the UCP to the curb. Any government that allows the AHS to dictate the rules of our existence our security and right to travel and personnel freedom as the cowboys say kick ass.This is what happens when you are bribed with your own monies.

MAKICHUK: Legendary Wings’ goalie Crozier deserves to be in the Hall

I also remember the smell of the hotdogs, the walls of cool Wings souvenirs and paraphernalia, none of which we could afford and watching the warriors come off the ice on a red carpet at the end of the game.

My dad thought he looked familiar. He was working on this car, at a GM dealership in Windsor at the time, doing front-end alignment, wheel balancing and new car pre-delivery inspections. Suddenly this friendly little guy comes along, introduces himself ... it's Roger Crozier, the Red Wings goalie. Dad has a nice chat with him, discovers he's a nice, humble Canadian boy. He also happens to

SLOBODIAN: Liberal MP Atwin wants racist theory taught to kids

CRT is based on a Marxist radical left-wing definition of culture and history designed to create factions, to pit people against one another.

Fredericton MP Jenica Atwin appears to have shifted her focus from trashing Jews to promoting tainting the minds of school children. Good fortune befell the Green Party of Canada when Atwin threw a hissy fit and bailed last June to join the Liberals. That’s when Atwin condemned former Green Party leader Annamie Paul’s appeal for dialogue and de-escalation of the Israeli-Palestinian confl

MORGAN: It’s time to break up the Alberta Teacher’s Association

ATA representative Jonathan Teghtmeyer said the ATA is not under any obligation to report any potential criminal behaviour of teachers to the police.

Is the Alberta Teacher's Association (ATA) a professional organization, a disciplinary body, or a union? The answer to all three questions is 'yes', and it has created a gross conflict of interest. The ATA is a union by every definition but name. It takes mandatory dues from teachers, it negotiate collective agreements, and has the ability to call a strike. It advocates on behalf of teachers t

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.

No Media Bailouts

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.
