Erin O'Toole has had several chances to fire his campaign chair, Walied Soliman, who has proven to be an aggressive social justice warrior and passionate proponent of softer immigration policies. There are other allegations and rumours about Soliman that I won't touch on, either because they are dubious or trivial at best.

Any linguist will tell you that language and words define culture, influence attitudes and guide social behaviours. A certain word can manipulate how we understand an entire subject or issue, which is why left-wing activists and strategists have worked so hard at re-defining common political issues by changing the language we use to understand them. Some of the changes are blatant and have been subject to ridicule, while others have been more subtle and widely used without most of us noticing.

Justin Trudeau's Liberals have passed your children a bill for $780 Billion. That is the current public debt held by Canada, but worry not—you will be long gone when the time comes to pay for it. It will be your children, your children's children and their children that end up paying for it with higher taxes, a lower quality of life, a depleted pension system and crumbling infrastructure. If you didn't vote for Justin Trudeau in 2019 and you are angry about the burden his voters have place upon your children, you may want to consider showing less tolerance toward Liberal voters in your everyday life.

The Iowa caucuses were an absolute disaster in every aspect. A tech company linked to Pete Buttigieg and the Democratic establishment botched the entire process with a faulty app, all while the mainstream media spiked a poll just days before the caucuses that showed Bernie Sanders leading by double digits. It is all for not, because their attempts are as clear and visible as day.

After the previous leadership race turned out to be a debacle in both the long and short term, there shouldn't be any doubt that the Conservative brass will do anything to avoid a repeat. They've already made it more difficult for candidates to enter the race in an effort to keep the slate small, but that might not be where they stop.

I recently re-read the Diane Francis book, Merger of the Century. It was published in 2013 and had a lot of great insights and topics within its easy-to-read 345 pages. She outlines the case for a US/Canada merger and why it makes the most sense for both countries. At the time this book was published, Canada was riding high on the peak of the latest commodity boom.

One of the biggest impediments to Alberta Independence is the sentimentality of Canada in the hearts and minds of Albertans. They may complain and moan about partisan politics, but when it comes to patriotism, they beam with pride. It’s hardwired for people to believe that loving your country is a part of being a good person. No matter how dysfunctional and corrupt Canada becomes, Albertans still have a belief in the country that transcends the issues of the day.
