Was responding to this part of your quote, with which you are clearly in complete and total agreement.

But another reason may be Kenney’s odd constitutional musings and his desire to hang on to the UCP’s ideological base.

It almost defies belief, for instance, that the premier would exempt anti-mask demonstrators from the new mandatory rule that limits outdoor gatherings to 10 people.
BTW what defies belief is limiting outdoors gatherings at all. Again air exchange in an outdoor environment is hundreds and even thousands of times faster than inside. Limiting size, anti-social distancing and masks are completely pointless outside. Makes it awfully clear that none of these bums are in the least concerned with our health. If it was any clearer even Freddie and CM could see it.

Social Distancing is an Oxymoron. The correct term is Social Demonization or Social Repression. Bandits, thieves and politically correct thugs hide behind masks.

Another Rex Murphy article that's sure to have the Politically Correct types howling in fury.

Dorsey and his plutocratic allies may have the “right” to strip-mine all opposing views from their so-called platforms, but they should not simultaneously be allowed to preach that they are open, and empowering, and speaking truth to power — or, most importantly, to deny that they are agents and activists in the great political struggle of our times.

Nice to wake up to more good news....

This deplorable Harper appointee is finally getting the message - her prejudice is no longer welcome. A shame our tax dollars will continue to provide for her well-being...


Lynn Beyak, the senator who defended residential schools, is resigning



Lynn Beyak, the controversial senator from northwestern Ontario with a long history of making inflammatory remarks about Indigenous peoples, is resigning from the Red Chamber.

Beyak, who was named to the Senate by then-prime minister Stephen Harper in 2013, is leaving just as other members of the upper house were preparing to consider a motion from Independent Sen. Mary Jane McCallum to permanently remove her from the upper house.

Beyak, 71, is leaving three years before her mandatory retirement date.

While Beyak has been suspended from the Senate twice — for questionable comments about the Indigenous residential school system and for posting racist letters on her taxpayer-funded website — an expulsion might have had financial consequences for her, since it would have allowed Parliament to curtail her lifetime pension.

Sorry CM while I disagree with some things Beyak has said, it is crucial to maintain her right to say them. The Senate can of course make it very clear that they unanimously disagree with her, but that is as far as it should ever go.

The entire point of free speech is in that first word. Being free to say what you believe. What you believe may not be true, or it may be true but in complete disagreement with the current popular narrative. Either way it should never be curtailed. Even if we are talking about Senators who are generally appointed to represent special interests, at the expense of most Canadians.

Take it up with her Conservative colleagues in the Senate who supported her censure. There are limits to free speech, as there should be.
