Duel 183 - Should uniformed law enforcement be welcome to march in gay pride parades?

This week's question: Should uniformed law enforcement be welcome to march in gay pride parades? Furor over police participation in Pride parades are another example of how far-left radicals seek to unearth old injustices and conjure new oppression in an era of unprecedented tolerance and diversity. Old injustices are exactly what Garth outlines this week. Yet, events from 50 years ago provide no justification to ban uniformed law enforcement from marching in Pride parades today. The battle for...Read More

Duel 182 - Is the left-wing complicit in the shooting of members of the U.S. Congress?

This week's question: Is the left-wing complicit in the shooting of members of the U.S. Congress? Left-wing political violence poses a clear and present danger to the stability of capitalist democracies. For the Left, the entire point is to incite revolution and overthrow the status quo. James T. Hodgkinson is the 66-year-old Bernie Sanders supporter who opened fire with a high power rifle on dozens of people at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Va. The attack was...Read More

Duel 181 - Should U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May feel sorry for calling a snap election?

This week's question: Should U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May feel sorry for calling a snap election? In war and politics, the greatest threat always comes from within. Treachery, treason and insurgency are the customary tactics of the ignoble. But victory’s most pernicious threat comes from deliberate action instigated by a leader — an unforced error. In his column, Garth draws an incorrect parallel between B.C. Premier Christy Clark and British Prime Minister Theresa May. Unlike the recent...Read More

Duel 180 - Should protecting transgender rights be included in the Canadian Human Rights Act?

This week's question: Should protecting transgender rights be included in the Canadian Human Rights Act? Hate has lost all meaning. All one need do is disagree with any issue of importance to the Left to find him or herself branded as someone that hates. Oops, I just used him and her pronouns. Pardon me. My pronouns are he, him, his and himself. I should ask which of the following soul-crushing, gender neutral pronouns do you identify with:...Read More

Duel 179 - Following Manchester bombing, is Katy Perry right, should we all just "unite" and "co-exist”?

This week's question: Following Manchester bombing, is Katy Perry right, should we all just "unite" and "co-exist”? I am thankful for the ocean separating North America from the wasteland that is Europe. It’s a physical barrier or wall, if you prefer, that effectively keeps Europe’s problems from washing ashore here at home. Whether that be a flood of Muslim refugees with no appreciation for western values or Islamic State fighters determined to kill innocents in a...Read More

Duel 178 - Is Christy Clark redeemable?

This week's question:  Is Christy Clark redeemable? The provincial election was a disaster. No matter the final result, it’s clear that Christy Clark lost the election. Big time. Clark was unable to adequately defend free-market principles and articulate a vision that appealed to both urban and interior voters. The great irony of our times is that urban voters lean left and interior voters lean right. Clark’s pandering to left-leaning voters left her lying flat on her face, causing...Read More
