COMING SOON TO A THEATRE NEAR YOU! Really near you. (Cue music) The year is 2016. Using outdated and virtually-obsolete Korean wind turbine technology, the Alliance has propelled itself into the future to try once again to destroy the Earth. In Terminator 6, we convinced them that killing wildlife—birds, bats, mammals and turtles—and bulldozing down […]

I know it’s a little belated, but I didn’t get a chance to join in the celebration of International Women’s Day. Being a guy had nothing to do with it. But I have a few comments, since I was not asked to be a guest speaker—probably due to my high testosterone levels. To start: I […]

Since County council is still too new to have learned how to bugger things up yet, I thought I might address some larger issues. Canada and Canadians are unusual in the world. We tend to be very happy. Some of the world’s greatest comedians have that oddball Canadian way of looking at things. Apparently we […]

Wish list

My wish list for the new council is longer than my Christmas list. Like Celine Dion’s heart, it goes on and on. My wish list for Christmas has two items: a Beatles calendar anda Ferrari. My kids now make more money than me, so I’m hoping the Ferrari will be payback for the money I […]

Well, there were a few surprises in the recent election, and there will, in fact, be changes in the faces around the council table. Now we get to see what the electorate has wrought, and whether our choices were wise or misguided. It’s possible we might all run for cover, like the Brian Mulroney landslide […]

It’s been a busy year, but I had to squeeze in some time for one column before Monday’s municipal vote. No, I’m not going to tell you who to vote for, just so you can wipe your brow and say “whew!” and blame the next four years on me. I do have some observations to […]

The County’s last stand

By launching the concept of separation, I have been called delusional. Maybe so. But despite the obvious satirical bent of my columns, I hope that other voices will join in to save the County we love so dearly. Lots of people say: “Hey, I’m with you,” because they see the same eve of destruction of […]

Standing on our own—and growing!

Some people think that I am like Chicken Little, always shouting that the sky is falling. But to me, it’s more like the ‘canary in the cage’ in the mineshaft. As the province steamrolls over property and individual rights, as well as wildlife and the remaining remnants of nature, the canary is indeed dying. And […]

How separation can work

At least one of my readers has a fixation with purpose and principles when launching a project as big as the creation of the province of Prince Edward County. Our purpose is simple: To return decisionmaking power to the people of the County concerning its operations and future. Our principles should be incorruptible. We intend […]

Okay, the time has come. I have previously launched the idea of separating the County from Canada, largely as a gesture to embarrass the federal and provincial governments, and had some fun in the process. As Pat Larkin said: “We are one consonant away from being Prince Edward Country!” Our municipal vehicle signs could be […]
