So last night, I sat back in a recliner with my 3D glasses on, paper mache tray containing a leaky medium Coke, poutine, and pulled pork sandwich on my lap, chowing down, trying not to make a mess, and waiting for Star Wars: The Last Jedi to begin. Next to me, The Kid was chowing…Read more
Questions about Alberta Secession
Last week, I wrote about, “Rethinking Canada“, in which I made the basic case for Alberta’s secession from the Canadian confederation. Every so often, when I bring the subject up in conversation, the reaction can be very emotionally charged. That’s perfectly fine, this is definitely an emotional topic for many people, and we are indeed…Read more
It’s been almost three months since Canadians outside of Alberta and southern Saskatchewan sold out to expediency, jealousy, and entitlement – choosing to throw out the Conservatives under Stephen Harper, because they were buying into the string of untenable, unaffordable, and unwise bill of goods peddled by a man who has never held high office….Read more
What if David Lowe Arranged the Doctor Who Theme?
I’ve been playing. I like to play from time to time. I asked myself, a while back, “What if David Lowe had a chance to arrange the Doctor Who theme?” David Lowe is, by the way, the guy who composed the iconic music, “countdown”, for BBC News, and has kept updating it ever since. It’s…Read more
Projection vs Reality and Analysis.
Now that the election is over, and I have had an opportunity to decompress a little bit from my disgust and dismay at seeing yet another person named Trudeau elected to the PMO to ruin our country, it’s time to put on my analytical hat and see how well my Patented Projection Prognosticator worked towards…Read more
Canada Sells Its Soul
In my last post, I said I hoped I was wrong – and I was. I predicted a Liberal minority government. I’m working my way through the results, comparing my projections against the actual results, and I’ll put that analysis up later, but for now, I want to get my fingers on the keyboard and…Read more

Ipsos Poll: October 14 – CPC Minority most likely
Really quick entry here, as the numbers are shifting a lot and there’s a very large amount of uncertainty regarding Monday and what the end result will be. Ipsos came out with a poll today, which, when I ran it through my Projection Machine, yeilded the following: Party Projected Assured Probable Possible Long Shot…Read more
Election Probabilities and Predictions
This has been a while in the making. I recorded this back on the 3rd, and then spent the last week fighting with it to get it just right. Four rendering attempts, multiple re-works of the chroma keying, and, while it’s still not perfect, it is, at this point, sufficient to publish this now. If…Read more
Could Harper be Poised to Pull it off?
For the last few weeks, things have looked pretty grim for the Conservative Party; of course, that’s assuming you believe what the mainstream media tells you. The CBC, CTV, the National Post, and of course Pravda The Toronto Star all seem to be actively campaigning for the NDP/Liberal coalition. However, Ekos released a poll yesterday (well, it’s…Read more
