UPDATED WS POLL RESULTS: Should Canada, like the US and Australia, do a diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics in China?




The US and Australia have announced they will send no official delegation to the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics as a diplomatic boycott of the games in protest of China’s human rights record.

The Western Standard asked readers to weigh in on the subject and an overwhelming majority said they believe Canada should do a diplomatic boycott of the upcoming Winter Olympics in China.

As of Wednesday, Canada followed suit and joined the US and Australia in boycotting the 2022 Olympic Winter Games but said Canadian athletes will still be allowed to compete.

    Who gives a shit what China does. We’re fucking doomed anyway with this current system of medical apartheid. We’ve lost our freedoms for convenience.

    Canada is in no position to pass judgement on China over human rights. Last month they Canadian Army was chasing around natives in Northern Saskatchewan forcefully injecting them. Canada also features a 2 tiered caste system that denys groceries to the unvaccinated. Canada is a human rights violator and is no better then China in this regard.

    Agre with all – WGAF?
    Canada should be boycotted and sunctioned for violation of human rights of un-vaxxed people. USA should set the price on our oil, beef and lumber $1 for barrel/kilo/ton.

    I think we need to look in the mirror and be more disgusted by our own governments’ violation of constitutional rights. Can’t criticize China when for the last two years we are almost as bad!

    This is more and more starting to look like the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, we all know what happened after that.

WS POLL: Do you plan to use the government-provided rapid test kits whether you experience COVID symptoms or not?




Along with a host of new restrictions announced Tuesday by the Alberta Government, Premier Jason Kenney also announced the province will directly purchase 10 million rapid test kits set to be delivered in January.

Free rapid test kits were made available to Albertans on December 17. More than 2.5 million tests — or 500,000 tests kits — were shipped to participating AHS and pharmacy locations and the province confirmed there’re more to come.

The Western Standard wants to know if you plan to use the rapid test kits provided by the Alberta government. Let us know by taking our poll.

UPDATED WS POLL RESULTS: Should transgender athletes be allowed to compete in women’s sports?




On Monday, Western Standard columnist Barbara Kay took a dive into the controversial topic of a transgender male competing in a women’s division making “mincemeat” of the female competitors.

“Any male who has gone through puberty has acquired a host of benefits that don’t go away with testosterone suppression. Data on run, jump and throw tests show that even before puberty, boys have an enormous advantage over girls in speed, power, and strength. If they didn’t, there would have been no obvious need for a women’s division,” wrote Kay in her column.

Here are the results of our poll. An overwhelming majority of readers voted ‘no’ to transgender athletes being allowed to compete in women’s sports.

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.

**your signature**

The Western Standard will never accept government bailout money. By becoming a Western Standard member, you are supporting government bailout-free and proudly western media that is on your side. With your support, we can give Westerners a voice that doesn\'t need taxpayers money.
