In it, I address her initial claims, why I was never interested in interviewing her, her position on gold and local currencies, her change of strategy in no longer talking about the “coneheads” and related issues.
As a sign of the times of cultural Marxism run amok, and on the public dime, no less, from the November 20, 2014 article on Canada’s national broadcaster, the CBC, they had the audacity to ask whether Canada’s third most populous province, British Columbia, should change its name, in part due to changing demographics.
“Have you ever wondered why British Columbia is still called “British,” even though it’s not a colony any more? Howard Stewart has, and he wants to talk to you about it.
Stewart is a historical geographer, who has travelled all over the world. He thinks B.C. needs to have a conversation about other possible names– names that more accurately reflect the people who live there.“
Here were my comments:
“By that logic, the street names in Kitchener like Cayuga and Manitou should be changed to reflect the current demographics of mostly White Europeans. The fact that this question is even being asked, and by our national taxpayer funded broadcaster, no less, is a sign of where the founding European culture of this country is headed [if] multiculturalism and sustained, mass immigration from around the world is continued.”
“Where things are headed if, not unless. And what’s with the timing? When lots of Canadians of German, Scot and Irish background moved to B.C. to retire, there was no call to have it renamed. It seems the driving force is the movement of non-European immigrants. While we’re at it, we should also change the name of Canada, since that was based upon a Native name, which the current demographics don’t reflect.”
And since they solicited comments, I sent them this email:
“With the recent CBC funding cuts, is an article and feature on one geographer’s musings about changing the name of B.C. such an important priority?
Perhaps we should also consider changing the name of Canada, since it is based on a Native name, which doesn’t reflect the current demographics.
Please, use your limited financial resources more wisely in serving the vast majority of Canadians and not what a particular B.C. academic is proposing.”
and this email to the UBC Professor of Geography, Howard Stewart:
I came across the CBC article, Does British Columbia Need a New Name, in reference to your call for a name change, based, in part on changing demographics.
By that logic, we should also consider changing the name of Canada, since it is based upon a Native name, which doesn’t reflect the demographics of Canada ever since it was founded in 1867, and to this very day.”
A libertarian friend of mine has a new political podcast series from a much-needed Canadian perspective. It’s called the Political Paradox Podcast.
From the first two episodes:
The Political Paradox Podcast – EP 002 – Healthcare, Government Bans and The Olympics
Posted: Tue, 18 Nov 2014 15:00:00 GMT
This week, what is the REAL cost of “Free” healthcare in Canada? You won’t believe what Ontario is looking to ban next. Plus, the outrageous list of IOC demands that prompted Norway to pull out of it’s Olympic bid.
The Political Paradox Podcast
Posted: Tue, 04 Nov 2014 15:00:00 GMT
It’s the first ever episode of the political paradox podcast. On today’s show, Paul explains what exactly a libertarian is. Then, he shares his story of how he became a libertarian.
Here is the description of the first hour of my second appearance on Red Ice Radio, speaking about Canada’s Identity Crisis:
“Jason Erb has been writing for his blog, Exposing Faux Capitalism, since the start of the global financial collapse of 2008 and has been hosting his own weekly radio show since 2012. Jason covers economic, financial and political issues from a unique and uncompromisingly fact-based perspective.
In the first hour, we’ll talk about the Ottawa shooting when Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, an Islam convert fatally shot Corporal Nathan Cirillo, a Canadian soldier and then launched an attack in the nearby Centre Block parliament building. Jason talks about Canadian-Islamic relations and what may arise from this event. Will it lead to increased support for Israel? Then, we’ll talk about diminished free speech in Canada, including Arthur Topham’s case.”

Subsequent to the October 27, 2014 Ontario municipal election, I wanted to offer my list of the good and bad of the Waterloo Region municipal election results, with a focus on my community of Waterloo.
– Dave Jaworsky, the candidate elected as Waterloo mayor really worked hard for the job, knocking on over 20,000 doors.
– Waterloo mayoral candidate Erika Traub had a strong second-place showing in her first-ever political campaign, with her own high level of commitment and care for the citizens of the community.
– That being a regional weatherman for over 40 years shouldn’t automatically make you the top candidate or get you elected, especially by refusing most interviews and not campaigning much during the summer, which ultimately resulted in a third place finish.
– The candidate who ran for Waterloo councillor because he was “bored” came in last place.
– The former Member of Parliament for Kitchener-Waterloo who suddenly declared for Waterloo regional councilor just before the deadline and didn’t get to or choose to participate in any media and voter vetting exercises besides a Rogers debate didn’t get elected.
– The number one challenger to Ken Seiling for Regional Chair, Jay Aissa, didn’t get elected after discrediting the anti-LRT (light rail transit) movement with his various antics, such as his failed court challenge with a shell organization consisting only of himself, unauthorized emails from anti-LRT petition signers to regional councillors, obnoxious robocalls, misleading flyers, a false debt projection claim, a legal threat for some Facebook posts and allegations of sign interference.
– The return of both incumbent Waterloo regional councillors, Sean Strickland and Jane Mitchell.
– In 2010, Sean Strickland had said a 9% tax increase proposal was too high for light rail transit, only to support a 12.9% tax increase after the election.
– Prior to the 2010 election, Jane Mitchell had said she was against raising property taxes to pay for the light rail transit plan at the time, only to also support a 12.9% tax increase after the election.
– Not a single anti-LRT candidate elected, but understandable given some of the points mentioned above in the good section.
On a special 37-minute broadcast of Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb, I gave my candid take on the October 27, 2014 Waterloo Region election.

6) Waterloo Chronicle article quoting Waterloo regional councillor Sean Strickland saying a 9% tax increase plan for the LRT was too expensive, only to later approve a 12.9% tax increase.
