THUNDER BAY, ONTAIRO - August 20, 2018  (LSN)  I had found out recently that my children who attend Vance Chapman school were not allowed to have school transportation this year, due to the changes that were made this year.

COOK COUNTY, MINNESOTA - August 15, 2018 (LSN)   As we become more dependent on interconnected utilities and technology (including energy grids, communications, data systems, etc.) we also become more vulnerable to catastrophe from damages to those systems.

 

Think it can’t happen to you? Just this January 2018 large parts of Cook County experienced an extended power outage during frigid temps. In 2010, Lake County experienced the 2010 fiber-optic failure and couldn’t make phone calls, buy gasoline or make bank transactions. Every wind storm or blizzard has the potential to damage our grid systems.

Whitewashing history fails to serve the common good

HAMILTON, ONTAIRO - August 19, 2018  (LSN)  In the interest of righting a genuine and grave historic wrong – the suffering of our Indigenous peoples – the historical hubris of our present Canadian age is distorting history yet again.

Enter the City of Victoria and Sir John A. Macdonald. In removing his statue from in front of Victoria City Hall, the denizens of the Garden City have mistakenly attempted to erase history rather than reveal it, in all of its warts and triumphs.

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO -  August 12, 2018  (LSN)  In a disgusting and shameful move, the Victoria City Council has removed a statue of Sir John A. Macdonald, the latest in a growing example of radical left attempts to destroy Canadian history.

This is a terrible moment, and unless Canadians speak out against it and vote out the leftists, it will keep happening.

The radical left has a clear agenda: Wipe out Canadian national pride, and replace it with a globalist ideology that rejects the idea of a unified Canadian nation.
