01:06 - 06:59 - Michael's Editorial: The political establishment, the commentariat, special interest groups give no indication that they really know what's going on. Their goal is to obfuscate. To blur, muddle, confuse and befog the issues to their own end. It's insulting....
01:44 - 06:15 - Michael's Editorial - In a world where so many talk the talk but don't walk the walk - a 22 year Teaching Assistant displayed the character and courage that is so regularly absent in our public debates. And in doing she put the relentless attack on free speech in the national spotlight.
01:05 -05:34 - Michael's Editorial - Canada spends a record amount of money on healthcare while wait times for treatment are the longest they've ever been. A Supreme Court Ruling said that 1,000's of Canadians are suffering needlessly, even dying through the lack of timely access. Meanwhile Canada bans any private Healthcare solution for everyone..... except our MP's, their familys, injured union workers, Federal prisoners and the military who all access private facilities with no wait times.
Three areas that are going to profoundly affect society, Demographics, Technology related job losses and unfunded liabilities, is rarely, if ever, addressed by a politician. This poor leadership foresight has allowed these problems to become larger and ever more dangerous.
It's not like we didn't know that free speech is under attack on university campuses but few seemed to care. At least until this week when the recording of the meeting between Sir Wilfred Laurier Teaching Assistant, Lindsay Sheppard and three faculty representatives who believe that exposing students to uncomfortable opinions is tantamount to assault.
....related from Michael: It's Time To Stand Your Ground - The movement to eliminate free speech in our society today actually threatens our standard of living.
01:11 - 06:45: Michael's Editorial - A fundamental disregard for opposing views is a recipe for bad policy. It's also become blatantly dangerous to the establishment as the election of Donald Trump, Brexit, and the furor over the Liberal small business tax changes glaringly demonstrate. It's not a positive that if we could weaponize smugness, Canada would be the most feared nation on Earth!
00:43 - 05:59 - Michael's Editorial: Nov 11th, remembrance day, and the freedom those who sacrified their lives for is less and less appreciated in Canada. Everywhere we look freedom is under assault, which means the profound correlation between freedom and economic prosperity is under assault. Michael on some gripping examples to shake us up.
