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

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.

End the Fracking Protests in New Brunswick! Time For a vote on Shale Gas!

It has been a week since the RCMP, armed to the teeth, clashed with a group of peaceful protestors just outside of Rexton, NB. The protestors were blocking SWN’s compound, trying to stop the Texas-based gas company from continuing their … Continue reading

Fire the Bum!

Last week I said the conservative’s free vote on the shale gas issue would be a real shemozzle for the tory mla’s…and I was right.  Instead of voting with their constituents, they opted to side with the gashole.  That being … Continue reading

Wrestling! Fracking! Slacking!

Seeing as I’m still not totally healed up, I’ve spent the last few weeks writing. I’ve been working on a novel and it’s just about completed. The whole thing is kind of creeping me out. I’ve put a lot of … Continue reading
