The new reality of lies, damn lies, and more lies – liberals are the biggest liars.
  The new reality of lies, damn lies, and more lies In a world where cyberspace leaves few rocks under which to hide, one would think people in powerful positions involving public trust would think twice about lying. Yet they persist. South of our border, the United States has had its share of historical presidential whoppers, of course. Richard Nixon disavowing any knowledge of the Watergate break-in, and Bill Clinton’s straight-face

Trudeau's lack of substance suits the UN perfectly Trying to analyse a Justin Trudeau speech is like trying to dissect a marshmallow. It’s soft and fluffy and overly sweet. And the second you try to pull it apart it dissolves into goo. (Which says a lot about the groups of teachers, social workers, municipal politicians and special activists who used to pay him tens of thousands of dollars to deliver keynote addresses at their conventions.)

Why Wynne was booed on hydro It’s hard to imagine Premier Kathleen Wynne being applauded anywhere in Ontario over hydro rates. So it’s not surprising she was booed at the International Plowing Match Tuesday in Harriston, Ontario, when she started talking about them. Wynne told reporters she understood the frustration many rural residents — who have been particularly hard hit by skyrocketing electricity rates — are feeling. Many may not be awa

Wynne lowballing cap-and-trade cost Since Premier Kathleen Wynne says she is resetting her government with a new session of the legislature, now would be a good time for her to come clean on the cost of carbon pricing to Ontarians. So far, the only increase in the cost of living the Wynne government has acknowledged under its cap-and-trade scheme is a hike of $156 annually per household, starting Jan. 1, due to higher gasoline and natural gas pri

Ontario needs courage from Lt.-Gov. Dowdeswell TORONTO - That was one panicked throne speech Lt.-Gov. Elizabeth Dowdeswell delivered Monday. Usually such events set out a vision — goals and aspirations the government will strive to achieve. This one had a note of hysteria about it: The Liberals are furiously backpedalling on hydro rates. The government finally got the message that it can’t simply push the cost of the Liberals’ failed electrici

Michael Den Tandt: Trudeau should enjoy his popularity while it lasts, because come fall all bets are off Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, according to a survey just published by the Angus Reid Institute, is more popular than he’s ever been. He should enjoy this while it lasts. That is to say until Monday, when MPs return to the House of Commons for the fall sitting of Parliament. After that, all bets are off. It’s been a year, almost, since the Li
