If you support the OiC (Order in Council) for gun control, just wait until the Conservatives do the same with abortion. A dangerous political precedent has been set in Canada. Now, governments can forgo parliamentary oversight, debate, official opposition and simply have their Lieutenant Governor sign any order they wish to get turned into law. The order was never seen in the House Of Commons and was given royal assent with no vote. The Liberal gun-ban law was passed, demonstrating Canada's failing democracy under a leader who praises many dictatorial governments.

Governments around the world are playing with fire. The massive deficits and liquidity being tossed around in the system in an attempt to stop the Coronavirus or Covid-19 or “Chinese virus” as Donald Trump calls it, or “CCP virus” as some anti-communist conservatives are trying hard to call it, is going to create a big inflationary bubble. Last time this was tried it was 2008/09 and the financial crisis was met with massive deficits and liquidity being tossed around in the system.

Donald Trump has been perpetually under attack for making references to possible Coronavirus treatments over the past couple of months. Mainstream media has lambasted him for suggesting a popular Malaria drug could treat COVID-19, for suggesting zinc could be used to treat symptoms, and for suggesting that UV treatment and disinfectants could be used inside the body. But what is really behind Trump's references and where did they come from?

Taiwan has been trying to escape China's ominous shadow for at least one hundred years. It has been occupied by Japan and gone through its own growing pains with civil war and dictatorship. It wasn't until 1987 that Taiwan officially began to evolve into a burgeoning democracy based on civil rights, equality and capitalism. In 2007, Taiwan's government voted to give the country and its people a separate identity from China. In 2016, Taiwan elected its first female president.

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.
