Random Thoughts – Snow in the Old Country, CPC Leadership and More

Some thoughts on recent events:

1. For the record, I wasn’t happy to hear of the massive snowstorm that ripped through my former neck of the woods this week. That said, seeing the pictures made me even more pleased to no longer be living there. If that’s possible.

2. Though I have a keen interest in the CPC leadership race, I haven’t watched any of the debates as yet. I’m waiting until the number of candidates dwindles to single digits.

2a. Maxime Bernier, Andrew Scheer, Lisa Raitt and Erin O’Toole are my early favorites, in that order. Subject to change. I am maintaining an open mind.

2b. If only I didn’t have other commitments on the day Bernier came to Niagara. I would have loved to have heard what he had to say.

2c. I like some of what Kellie Leitch has to say. I just wish someone else was saying it.

2d. Dear Michael Chong: There’s a Liberal Party membership card with your name on it. Please avail yourself of it.

2e. I love that the dismantling/declawing of the CBC is finally getting discussed among the candidates. Even under Harper’s government, the CBC seemed to be a sacred cow no one was willing to touch with a 10-foot pole.

3. My book chronicling the history of the USFL’s New Jersey Generals is proving surprisingly popular. Thank you to those who have bought it.

3a. Yes, the history of a team once owned by the soon-to-be President of the United States was written by a Canadian. Go figure.

4. Censorship and a heavy left-wing bias in the mainstream media and on social networks are still going strong. The leftists just don’t get it. Donald Trump did not win the U.S. presidential election because they didn’t do enough. It’s because they did too much. People are fed up and are finally fighting back. Maybe there’s some hope for us yet.

4a. For a bias-free alternative to Twitter, please check out gab.ai. You can follow me there at @CurtisWalker.

4b. It takes a special kind of chutzpah for the Winnipeg Free Press, the biggest private-sector purveyor of left-wing political propaganda west of Ontario, to call out others for spewing fake news and propaganda.

4c. I am growing increasingly intolerant of the intolerant. I am quite happy to show respect to others with a different viewpoint as long as it is returned in kind.
