Canadians have a lot to think about this election

By Dr. Linda Hancock on September 9th, 2021

I don’t believe I was the only person who was surprised when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau decided to call an election for the end of September.

It matters not how many wonderful words are written to paint a picture of a fully-clothed emperor if the emperor, naked, reveals the naked truth. Each year ... Read More »

A Canadian dream

By Rachael Harder - MP for Lethbridge on August 6th, 2021

“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” This is the verse inscribed into the stone over the West window of the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill.
