Trump, Fake News and Great Books

I don’t know what to believe anymore. In reality, how could anyone know what to believe?Fake news,  conspiracies,  partnerships that do or don’t exist. It’s getting harder and harder to figure out. I’ve been watching some news this week, ever … Continue reading

Buses, Bilingualism, Baloney….

This morning I was interviewed by CBC about the ongoing drama in this bilingual province of ours.  French and English children are expected to grow up and live in the same communities, but God forbid you put them on the … Continue reading

Racists, Bigots and Bilingualism

Well, well, well. The bilingual beast has reared its ugly head once again in New Brunswick. Just when I thought things couldn’t get any more stupid around here, they did! Apparently it’s unconstitutional for English and French children to ride … Continue reading

Tips about tips?

Recently while in the USA, after dining in a restaurant, the bill was presented and the tip was included in the amount. I have a real problem with this. Why should the establishment be the one who decides what the … Continue reading

An Election Parable for New Brunswick

A parable for all New Brunswickers. Dick loved the forest and hunting. However, he could get lost walking to the neighbors. His sense of direction was about as good as Stevie Wonder’s. So when his name got drawn in the moose … Continue reading

New Brunswick Election Disaster

I’m suffering from a rare form of heartburn. The kind that would knock down a mule. Unfortunately, tums isn’t going to cure it. I usually wind up with this type of stomach pain every four years or so, when a provincial election in New Brunswick is called. The cramps first hit me hard when Premier Shawn Graham decided to bail out Atcon to the tune of over 70 million bucks a few years back. The whole thing screamed of scandal, and when it was all over he was hit with a measly fine for being in conflict of interest. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m pretty sick and tired of how corrupt the picture province has become. “BE IN THIS PLACE” must have been a slogan for corporate giants and crooked politicians. It certainly isn’t the place to be if you are a hard working citizen looking to raise a family. Our standard of living keeps dropping, our children keep moving out west, and our taxes keep going up. Meanwhile, the province is teetering on the verge of bankruptcy. With an election looming on the horizon, the idiots have all come out to play, like a bunch of bats under a spotlight. Brian Gallant is dancing around the fracking issue, like Pinocchio before Geppetto cut his strings. He’s saying he’ll call a moratorium on the issue, but if he gets elected he’ll do whatever the puppet masters tell him. If they decide to turn New Brunswick into a toxic dumping site for gold mines and nuclear power plants, he’ll do it. He won’t have a choice. Premier Alward is not one to be trusted either. Right now he’s pushing through the worst forestry deal in the history of the province. More pepto please. He’s in a hurry, because he’s afraid if he loses the election, the deal won’t go through. Why not let the voters decide if they want to decimate their province’s forests to please Irving? Because, potentially, the voters aren’t the ones lining his pockets. Much like the crooked Atcon deal, this stinks all the way to the high heavens.   If the Greens, NDP and People’s Alliance parties had two clues, they would amalgamate  immediately and have a fighting chance against Corrupt and Corrupter. But they won’t. They still seem to be under the misguided impression that they can actually form a government here. But they can’t. Our somewhat blind population seems to be stuck in a political rut that is dragging our province to the poorhouse. What is it going to take to make New Brunswickers see that we’re almost ruined? What is the solution to this age old, two party pork fest that we’re catering? More antacids I guess…. … Continue reading

Alward, Gallant, Election NB

Now that August is upon us, I am reminded that like autumn, there is a provincial election looming in the not-so-distant  future. And I can’t say that I’m excited about it. Provincial politics in New Brunswick remind me of a  sporting event of sorts. There are only two teams on the ice, and it doesn’t matter how shabbily one team  plays, they might lose possession of the puck for a while, but they’ll get it back sooner or later.   Why do we keep doing this to ourselves? First we vote red, then we vote blue, then red again. We keep kicking  them out  of office, then voting them back in, as if they are actually going to change. I don’t know how many of you are  paying attention, but this province is almost bankrupt. There hasn’t been any real leadership here in  decades. That’s right, decades! If something isn’t done to rectify the situation, we’re going to be in the  same boat as the city of Detroit.   We could change the political landscape by voting in one of the other parties, but I don’t think they  can take office unless they consider joining forces. And they should consider it. As New  Brunswickers, what are we afraid of? Could a coalition party do a worse job than the liberals  or the conservatives? Absolutely not. Come on people. It’s time to let  someone else take over the rink, and chuck the red and blue clowns into the penalty box.
