Canadian Politics


When Michael Zehaf-Bibeau killed a guard at the War Memorial and barged into the Parliament Buildings with a Winchester .30-30 rifle, Conservative Leader Stephen Harper, NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair and Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau exploded in bombast. They wanted to convert the ne’er-do-well homeless, drug addict Zehalf-Bibeau into an international criminal mastermind, a sort of Lex Luthor plotting to destroy democracy. The whole performance was so overblown, I felt similar contempt for Mulcair and Trudeau that I usually reserve for Harper.

The proper question to ask is why couldn’t Zehaf-Bibeau get into rehab? That is the root cause of this whole mess.

Disband the Snowbirds

The Snowbirds are a Canadian military aeronautic acrobatic team. I would like to see them disbanded for a number of reasons:

  1. Their shows are intended to turn on young boys and make them yearn to pilot such machines and drop bombs on innocent people.
  2. They terrify little old ladies. One came rushing toward me convinced we were under attack.
  3. They take risk by doing acrobatics over cities. They have no right to put those people’s lives at risk.
  4. They waste huge amounts of fuel and emit huge amounts of greenhouse gases.
  5. They make a huge racket that brings work to a standstill in the city they attack.
  6. They are a huge expense to the taxpayer without practical function. They are a frill. The government has no business putting on circus acts at taxpayer expense.

At the very least, the shows should be held in rural areas far away from any city.
