49% of Canadians think immigration targets are too high!
Posted on January 19, 2023
With an aging population and low birth rate immigration accounts for almost 100% of Canada’s labour force growth. Roughly 75% of Canada’s population growth comes from immigration, mostly in the economic category.
We are now setting new records for immigration this year with a plan to accept 500,000 in each of the next 3-5 years. Almost 10,000 per week. It is the government’s belief that this move is necessary to sustain and grow Canada’s economy generating billions of dollars in additional GDP with the associated tax growth necessary just to pay for it all.
Western and Northern Canadians are at a crossroads!
Posted on December 08, 2022
Canada is one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world with a population density under 4 people per square kilometre, which ranks 228th in the world. We occupy 4 time zones, 15 Ecozones, and very diverse regions by employment, weather and natural resources. Persons living in Nova Scotia face dramatically different issues than those in Central BC.
It is time to abandon the erroneous concept that a federal government in Ottawa can create one size solutions for all of Canada. It is time to abandon the erroneous concept that Western Canada is fairly represented in Ottawa when most elections are decided before a single western Canadian vote is even counted.
Maverick the Ally of the Western Provinces in Ottawa!
Posted on October 27, 2022
Premier Danielle Smith is looking to take a bite out of an intruding Ottawa to protect Alberta Sovereignty. Her leadership platform closely mirrored the Maverick Party's Take Back message.
Ever since Stephen Harper helped author the Alberta Agenda in the 2001 Firewall Letter to Premier Klein Conservative Albertans have stood up against Federal overreach into provincial affairs and demand a voice at the table. We hope that all western premiers follow Ms. Smith's lead standing against Ottawa.
Alberta's Firearms Torpedo
Posted on October 05, 2022
Alberta recently fired a torpedo into Ottawa’s gun legislation hopefully sinking Trudeau’s buyback proposal.
Justice Minister Tyler Shandro informed Ottawa that the province was not supporting the federal plan to confiscate the newly prohibited firearms and instructed Alberta RCMP not to take part in any such action.
Is Pierre going to be the saviour for Western Canada?
Posted on September 15, 2022
Is Pierre Poilievre the new savior of Western Canada? Should the Maverick Party close shop now that a new CPC leader has been elected to "save" us?
Recently elected leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, in a surprisingly decisive victory, Poilievre has made many claims supporting a stronger west. But what, if anything, has really changed?
ArriveCan a wolf in sheep's clothing!
Posted on August 30, 2022
There is an adage that says beware a wolf in sheep’s clothing - That something which looks harmless and useful may in fact be a trap with serious, life altering consequences.
Originally the voluntary ArriveCan app was proposed to help Canadians cross international borders safely and quickly. Your phone can easily verify your vaccination status and track your whereabouts during a subsequent quarantine order. While portrayed as just another tool to help stop the spread of the virus its use is now mandatory, with massive fines for non-compliance.
Trudeau once again sidestepping democracy.
Posted on August 18, 2022
On August 19th Trudeau is once again sidestepping democracy and the due process parliament to ban the importation of handguns into Canada with another order in council. This is a rarely used process that allows the PM or Cabinet to create a law (usually to deal with an emergency situation) and avoid debate in Parliament. More and more this is becoming Trudeau's go to process to avoid democratic oversight by other elected officials.
Every day Inflation is stealing your money and making it harder for you to survive. !
Posted on August 04, 2022
Every day the current Liberal government is creating more and more inflation, like a black hole, sucking away at your purchasing power.
Inflation makes everything more expensive by driving up the price or decreasing the packaging size (some call this “shrinkflation”). We now have to make decisions about what we can afford. Can we afford a full tank at the gas pump? Do we get a less expensive cut of meat? Do we pay the rent, the power bill or buy food?
Do the Liberals want a food shortage?

Farmers worldwide are making the trucker convoy protest look like a Sunday picnic. Farmers in the Netherlands brought the country to a standstill clogging almost every major roadway in protest. While inflation drives up grain and produce costs at the store, that money is not reaching farmers who face even higher escalating costs of production. Government interference is a key part of their frustration where leaders like Trudeau are adding insult to injury with a call to restrict the use of fertilizers by 30% as part of a poorly planned Carbon Net Zero strategy.

Less than a week ago, when the Rogers and Shaw telecom companies went off line, it highlighted so many problems that we have as Canadians. It demonstrated how fragile the systems that we depend on actually are.
