View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley on Justin Trudeau’s All Things to All Policy Announcement JUNE 17, 2015

At first glance it looks like Justin Trudeau’s recent policy announcement of a list of items that he would implement if he becomes Prime Minister was based on the wisdom of a former adviser and campaign strategist for Pierre Trudeau.  Keith Davey would always argue that “It is when the Liberal Party shifts to the […]

Letter to the Editor by Pastor Tom Newton : Municipalities will obey ban on prayers APRIL 23, 2015

  Yes, the High Court of the Land has spoken, and many gladly obey. Another nail in the coffin of religious freedom and expression! I am not surprised at the High Court’s decision here, seeing its track record on past ungodly actions: abortion, same sex marriage, physician-assisted suicide, and many others. The trend is more […]
