About the blog

As most people who know me are aware,  I hold opinions. Often strong opinions . However, I do like to research and and seek out the facts. My father called me ‘ digger’ for that reason I suspect.

This will be a wide ranging blog going where ever the urge dictates. I will try and mix it up ; especially  referring to people and books that I particularly enjoy.

Hope you enjoy and visit often.

Brian

  1. Thoroughly enjoy reading your blog as part of my daily dose of online reading. I like that it’s short and to the point and though I don’t always agree with the view point I find it a refreshing change from some of the long winded and rambling blog posts that are out there. Keep it up!!

  3. Dear Mr. Peckford,

    I don’t know how else to contact you to say “Thank You” for the time and effort that you put into you blog. Like you I have strong opinions about a few things and like most people, I will tend to like other people with similar opinions. I am a Canadian male, 56, living on Vancouver Island. At first glance about as far away from our Princeling as one can get but in reality, a hatchery for new devotees of our pot loving potentate. When I ask the locals why they would support him, I am told it is because he will legalize the aforementioned weed or because he cares so much about the world. The scars on my forehead have yet to heal from all of the wall banging. Trust me, it does no good. The wall is still there and now I have a headache. I am reminded of the years in the late 60’s and the Trudeaumania of that time and frankly, it bothers me. It doesn’t surprise me, just bothers.

    But I’ve gone on too long when all I wanted to do was thank you for sharing your opinions and more importantly, the underlying objectivity that supports them. I’ll sign off wishing you all the best.

    Sincerely,

    Kurt Pyrch

  4. I’m tired tonight but I just couldn’t stop reading your blog paragrahs. I am going to frorward the latest to my ultra socialist friend in Deep Cove. He has waited his whole life for the government to pay his way and is hopeful now that the Obama people appear to be in a winning mode, along with Justin in Canada. Poor guy will die when he reads these paragraphs. His dream of a socialist society is fast coming to an end. Graet blog Brian.
    Talked to Hal Jones today. He is doing well, health is good and he is off all the medications except heart pills. Plays a lot of golf and asked me to say hi to you and Carol.

  5. Hi Brian,

    Shawn Jeffords here from The Canadian Press. I saw your post on the court decision regarding Toronto council and I’m hoping to talk with you about Ontario’s use of the notwithstanding clause. I’ll include my contact info below. Thank you.

  6. Mr. Premier, I could see Brian Jean, QC running for Tory leader federally & being an excellent Opposition Leader & Prime Minister. Yes a social conservative is Bri, but he’s supportive of gay marriage & LGBTQ rights. As well, he backed GSAs or Gay/Straight Alliances in schools. In 2015 after only 29 days as Wildrose leader, he brought them back from 10 seats to what 22, just a fabulous fellow. Plus hes not hated as much as Kenney & is married with kids so is seen as a family man. An ex-MP & fluently bilingual like Premier Kenney, Brian would have energy cash backing as hes a Fort Mac resident. Plus e’s seen as a hero for due diligence in helping folks who lost their homes in Ft. Mac wildfire, very gracious as he lost his own abode. And Ab. Health Services screwed up & it cost his teenage son from his 1st marriage his very life, so Brian is seen as a man of true compassion.

    As an aside I proposed Mrs. Nazanin MacKay, Peter’s wife as she has a poli sci degree and is Coptic Christian so woul steal many multicultural votes from Mr. Singh. And she & Peter live in the 905/416 belt so they’d get many Liberal crossover votes there. She turned me down but was rather flattered I thought of her! You were great on the Roy Green Show on Dec. 1/19 again.

    Regards, Rory J. Koopmans, Edmonton, AB.

    • I had not thought of him And i think you make a valid point. He is unknown outside of Alberta —perhaps known a bit in Sask and eastern BC. But from what I heard of him , sounds like a good candidate.

      Again your comments concerning Nazanin McKay are very interesting.

      Thanks. Brian

  7. Premier Peckford,

    I listen to you via Roy Green.  I feel like our Canada is going to hell, but you are the most effective sensible Conservative I have heard on radio.  Unfortunately we don’t have national syndicated truly conservative talk (with the exception of Roy Green 2 days a week) radio in Canada like they do in the USA, the latter I picked up by pulling in KBOI 670 Boise, a 50000 watt radio station at night time [however thank goodness for the internet.]  Our only local talk radio station is a mix of sports and the commentators who all they talk about is all fluff or left of center.   Its no wonder Liberals and the left of center dominate Canada with all the liberal & left of center.  I am so frustrated with this media bias and the direction Canada is going.. 
    Thank you and keep up your contribution.   If I had the power and money I would set up a radio system with you as one of the prime daily contributors. 
    Sincerely, 
    Bruce D

  8. Thank you for this site. My brother-in-law made me aware of it and I learn a lot here. I am one of the lost Red Tories who hold our noses and vote CPC….most of the time. We are folks who look at P. McKay and have some small hope that he can win and return us to a sensible conservative approach. I frankly don’t care that he made a “deal” 20 years back with the Reform Party. I just want a leader who succeeds on merit as opposed to name drops and virtue signaling, the latter term mentioned by Mr. McKay in his leadership announcement. There is little question that we are infected by the vitriol in politics migrating north, but the truth is that we seem quite capable of dividing ourselves and have been for some time. Keep up the fine work sir!
