Few people are wonkier about elections, knowing the ins and outs of local races, national races and what the parties are up to than David Akin. I sat down for a drink and a chat with my old Sun News colleague to talk about what to expect in the months ahead. Also this week, to round out the political wonkishness is Abacus Data’s David Coletto talking about his latest polling numbers, where the parties stand and where they might see growth.
It’s Father’s Day weekend, time to sit back and talk politics over beer. I do this from my deck this week as I explain what is happening with Mulcair, Trudeau & Harper. I talk polls and strategy with Warren Kinsella. There is an extended chat with Jessica Murphy on what it is like to cover Washington and Ottawa. Finally, I explain why the reaction to the horrific shooting in Charleston should give us all hope.
Took this a few weeks ago during the annual Tulip Festival in Ottawa. It’s a festival that dates back to shortly after WWII and the grateful Dutch people not only thankful for the Canadian soldiers that helped liberate much of Holland from the Nazis but also for the refuge Canada gave to the Dutch Royal Family during the war.

Propaganda. We know it exists. This week we learned the full extent of Russian propaganda in the west but that isn’t all we are dealing with.
There is also propaganda from Hollywood and elsewhere that is attacking our way of life, trying to guilt us into becoming something we are not. From hunting to driving a car, the propaganda machine aims to push the left’s agenda. And Brian talks to a Conservative politician that is making bureaucrats take away one regulation for every regulation they bring in.

But my Hortons buying habits are on hold as I boycott Timmy’s over their Enbridge move. Watch the video as I explain how Timmy’s is forgetting where they come from and why you need to take a stand to correct this.
200 concerned parents gathered on Parliament Hill to protest Kathleen Wynne’s new sex-ed curriculum.
Stephanie McEvoy told TheRebel.media’s Brian Lilley that special interest groups are pushing an agenda under the guise of sex education. She also says that outside of the classroom, exposing children to some of this material would be illegal.
Ontario’s sex-ed curriculum sexualizes young children, undermines parental authority and imposes the government’s morality on every Ontario family.

We did a poll, through Campaign Research, on the decision by Richmond Hill town council not to sing O Canada before meetings fearful that it would be unconstitutional. What did our poll say? Sing the damn anthem. Watch and share.
