  • olden reward awaits the victors

    The T. Eaton Trophy, colloquially and accurately, in terms of colour at least, referred to as “The Golden Football” for generations was first awarded in 1956. Heck, it’s outlived the once iconic namesake department store chain that I’ll presume made the initial donation. The 2017 recipient will be finally determined Friday. Three teams are still ...

  • Playing hardball at NAFTA table

    U.S. demands increasingly strict As the Major League Baseball playoffs continue, the United States is playing a little hardball of its own during NAFTA negotiations with Canada and Mexico. An analysis of the U.S.’s ever-increasing demands at the negotiating table raises the question of whether the Americans grasp the concept of compromise. Perhaps the U.S. ... Read More »

  • Catalonia: Puigdemont’s strategy

    Catalan nationalist leader Carles Puigdemont got most of what he wanted out of the chaotic pseudo-referendum on Oct. 1: 761 people injured by the Spanish police trying to block it. One or two martyrs dead for the cause of Catalan independence would have been even better, and no doubt the 761 injured include a fair ... Read More »

AfD’s a populist alternative to the actual neo-Nazi NPD, which considers Rudolf Hess a martyr. Iron nationalism? Or conviction against Angela Merkl’s excessive government? Dyer’s “right” is ill-defined, but the ... Read More »

  • Should we demand more from business sector?

    Do Canadians demand enough from business? Or, do we give business free rein to abuse us? We commonly give endless support to business through incentives, subsidies, reduced utility rates in water, electricity, roads, sewage, tax deductions for advertising, and freedom to pollute air and water. Citizens pay full costs for their own use, plus business’ ... Read More »

  • Token gestures don’t eliminate daily racism

    I have a lot of respect for former mayor Bob Tarleck. Indeed, some of his initiatives brought about some positive relationship building between First Nations and the City of Lethbridge.
