“Desperate times call for desperate measures, and now is the time to consider all options, no matter how Machiavellian.” says Dr. Killemall, said the head Epidemiologist for the W.H.O.
In response to this eyebrow-raising official statement, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau assured all Canadians that the W.H.O. is both infallible, and omniscient, therefore whatever they say, we will obey without question. To further bring home the point, PM Trudeau said yesterday,
“Our Government is now bringing forth new emergency legislation to immediately imprison anyone who makes any statements, either online, or otherwise which contradict, criticize, or question the recommendations of the W.H.O.
This is the type of serious response to the Pandemic that Canadians want, and it’s the response they deserve. We’re listening, and what’s more, we are taking the appropriate actions necessary for the betterment of all Canadians. We have heard the concerns of many Canadians who are facing financial hardship due to the economic impact of the Covid19 pandemic, and we are required to find a solution so we can get people back to work. Also, we must consider the mental health of Canadians. Many Canadians have already watched everything worth watching on Netflix, and now are cruelly forced to interact with family members through conversation, board games, and other interactive activities. No Canadian should have to suffer such hardships, so as a response, we have decided to follow the W.H.O. recommendations, and starting next week, we will be Euthanizing all Canadians over the age of 55, who are non-essential. Further, to save on medical costs, and eliminate the further spread of COVID19 we will also Euthanize everyone who tests positive for the virus, and is also deemed to be non-essential. Difficult times call for difficult choices, and I’m confident that Canadians will understand and support their Government. As fair warning, any protests, complaints, or obstruction of any kind will result in a minimum five-year prison sentence.”
If the parody above doesn’t make you at least a little bit uncomfortable…it should. Actions far worse than the unthinkable measures in this piece have been done before, with far less provocation. Six months ago, if someone told you that all Canadians would be confined to their homes for up to eighteen months, would you have believed it? Or, would you have responded by scoffing, “That’s ridiculous, it could never happen here! Where’s your tinfoil hat?” This is an important question to ask yourself right now. How far will the Government go? You’ve already been surprised by the current state of affairs, so be prepared for the Government to continue to expand its power by taking away your rights, with or without reasonable cause.
It starts with a well-meaning Police officer issuing an improper ticket to a family for rollerblading together. The family will likely win in court, but that’s not the point. The point is, a family who is simply spending health time together received an $800.00 fine for an action that did not actually contravene the currently imposed rules of social isolation. If you don’t respond with outrage at this, because it’s not happening to you, then let me remind you of a famous, and sadly relevant quote by the German Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller.
First, they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
Many people will be unable to accept that the above sentiment is either appropriate, or relevant to our current situation, and that would be an understandable response. It’s a bit much for most people to consider that we are now in a perilous position. Nearly every single time for all of recorded human history, when National Governments expand their power, they keep at least some of their new power. Often, the expansion of power continues until the only solution is a violent revolution to topple the tyrannical Government. You may not be interested in History, but I can assure you, history is directly relevant to your life right now.
Be vigilant, and be brave enough to speak out when the Government goes too far. If you don’t speak out early, you won’t have the ability to speak out at all when it’s too late. Remember, the Government is here to serve you, not subjugate you.
Yes, we all need to do our part during the Pandemic, and yes we need to be socially responsible for the good of all. We must be equally committed to fully regaining our freedoms once this is over, or we will face the very real possibility of living under a dictatorship.

Graven Images: The Greening Of Calgary
The city of Calgary this week elected the first woman mayor in its history. This is a source of great satisfaction to those citizens who cringe at Calgary’s image as part buckaroo/ part bitumen cowboy. The fact that Jyoti Gondek is of Pashtun origin only deepens the sense of accomplishment for the urban elite of Calgary.
How giddy are the wokesters? A CBC reporter illustrated the story with a tweet showing a long series of emoji men followed by a single emoji of a woman. Because journalistic objectivity at the national broadcaster demands a clever tweet. “Look what we’ve done, world! Woman! Punjabi! Now we can hold our heads up in the polite society of the urban hives.”
The new mayor has a PhD in urban sociology which “furnishes understanding of the complex as well as profound meaning of every urban reality, notably the territorial stabilization of social life, the rise of a space symbol system and culture, and the origin and evolution of human settlements.”
Which sounds like the sort of convoluted stuff that Wokesters toss around when they’re trying to distance themselves from the Stampede crowd. What it means in reality is that Gondek will commit $250 K to declare a climate emergency in Calgary as her first priority as mayor. As this photo below shows, it’s not a moment too soon.
Can she tame the city’s transit snarls and stare down a council bent on destroying the budget? Who knows? Who cares? The natural gas/ petroleum bastards will now have to take a knee to the symbolism of her outreach to Big Climate. And that’s enough.
Okay, it’s just a mayor in a mid-sized Canadian city, but you have to start with small dreams if you’re going to make the world a progressive paradise. Especially when, like Gondek, you spend every working day cloying with guilt over how Calgary’s energy industry is ravaging Mother Earth.
The big Green virtue dreams are the ones about to be dreamt in Glasgow in the next weeks as the world’s guiltiest liberals— aka the IPCC— convene to reconstitute the world economy by killing fossil fuels. If this all sounds familiar it’s because the Al Gores and Neil Youngs have been hard at this project for decades, sending thunderbolts of doom via a captive media. (Sample: 1987: NASA’s James Hansen predicts world 3C warmer by 2020. Reality: average temp only 0.44C higher.) And lots more faceplants.
No matter. The evolution of Green is a litany of half-baked predictions and salacious slanders. Even as European governments scramble to replace their sacred renewable dreams with the realities of nuclear power or, gasp, Russian natural gas, the pious will still party like it’s 1999— when all things seemed possible. There’s a revolution of purity happening here, folks, and a few inconvenient facts isn’t going to harsh the vibe.
The vibe, of course, is not climate change or even first women mayors. The vibe is victim culture, re-fitting Marxism so the uncouth and intemperate opposition can be permanently rendered inert. If Marx’s wealth re-distribution is to happen equity— not just equality— must be achieved. Any weapon at hand— climate, gender, victimization— will serve to get there.
The old Commie’s theories just need a new coat of victim’s paint to make them current. Author Chris Rufo explains how the Left is making the quick flip after their Cold War dreams died in the ‘70s at the altar of capitalist riches. : “… rather than abandon their political project, Marxist scholars in the West simply adapted their revolutionary theory to the social and racial unrest of the 1960s. Abandoning Marx’s economic dialectic of capitalists and workers, they substituted race for class and sought to create a revolutionary coalition of the dispossessed based on racial and ethnic categories.”
Suddenly, it’s all victims, all the time.
Thus the new liturgy, funded by Big Tech oligarchs such as Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates. Capitalist roaders are failed humans. Writes Christopher Chantrill: “Today’s elites are totally down as Allies of the Oppressed Peoples. Their political power is justified by their untiring support of and advocacy for The Victims.”
Andrea Widburg describes the role reversal in The American Thinker: “In its new iteration, Whites are irredeemably racist and evil. Equality is a trap because White societal dominance means that the other races (and sexualities) will never be able to catch up. Forced equity is the only answer, and one way to pave the way for that to happen is to force Whites to remove themselves from society, from the economy, from politics, and from any other area in which they can be seen to have an advantage.”
Celebrating the ascent of symbolism, not the skill-set of politicians such as Barack Obama (and the removal of statues) is how whites willingly remove themselves from the economy and society. As Rufo tweets, “@LockheedMartin, the nation’s largest defense contractor, sent key executives to a three-day white male reeducation camp in order to deconstruct their “white male culture” and atone for their “white male privilege.”
To the surprise of the Marxists, their old enemies on Wall Street are enthusiastically taking the bait. Now they have only the rump opposition of libertarians and stubborn conservatives left to hammer into shape and the Bernie Sanders revolution, begun in the ‘60s, will be complete.
Calgary will be so proud.

Calgary Beer is Back! Calgary Craft Brewer reimagines one of Alberta’s most iconic brands
From technology, to communication, all the way to beer, our world is changing more rapidly every day. Who could have imagined how the brewing industry would be turned upside down by craftsmen and entreupreneurs who risk it all for their passion to create a better product right in their community?
In a world that used to be very predictable, everyday another new craft beer hits the market. It’s hard to keep up, though many of us are doing our best. Despite all the excitement around the new tastes and all the clever marketing needed to get those beers into our hands, we all know a few people who are ‘holding out’. Maybe they don’t like change. Maybe they don’t know where to start. Maybe they’re perfectly fine with the same safe brew they’ve been tasting for their entire adult lives. Maybe they should know one of Alberta’s finest craft brewers is bringing back a familiar brand, offering a ton of comfort and enjoyment, one sip at a time.
The renowned brand “Calgary Beer” is back! And of all the craft brewers in Southern Alberta, Village Brewery is the natural choice to have taken on this “reimagined” project. Village Brewery was established by seven veterans of the brewing business, all with an equal passion for beer, and for their community. It made perfect sense for this group to recognize their roots by recreating some local history in the town they love so much. Just in case you didn’t know, Village Brewery turns 10% of their profits, back to the Calgary community.
When Village Brewery Re-launched Calgary Beer they were nice enough to make their Head Brewer Jeremy McLaughlin available for a few questions.
Here’s Jeremy McLaughlin.
1) Why are you bringing “Calgary” back?
The Calgary Beer brand is an important part of beer history in Calgary. It dates back to 1892 and the brand imagery is iconic and represents the origins of beer in Calgary. At Village Brewery, we have always been about supporting the community and bringing people together around beer. The idea of being able to produce something under this brand just fits so well with what we stand for at Village. It’s special to us because we were given an awesome opportunity to modernize both the label and the recipe for today’s craft beer fans.
2) Is this the exact same “Calgary” I drank many years ago?
Since the core ideology of this was to modernize the brand, we were not going to be using the same Export Lager style or name and decided to go with “Craft Lager”. We felt this would reach the audience that Village reaches already. The main distinction, in terms of ingredients, is a significant hop character (from Ella, Sabro and Enigma), which make up the flavour profiles of a lot of craft beer.
3) Talk about the “craft” version. The can looks fantastic by the way. Curious about that and the beer itself.
The beer is really something that we as a brewery were looking to explore, a Craft Lager or dry-hopped lager is very much in the realm of beer profiles that can be interesting to new craft drinkers but something that experienced craft connoisseur would find interesting as well. A breakdown on ingredients and vital stats should get the conversation started here:
-ABV is 5.00%
-Colour: Light Gold
-Clarity: Light/Moderate Haze -Malt: Rahr 2-Row
-Yeast: Escarpment’s Krispy Kveik
-Hops: Ella, Sabro and Enigma (all mainly used as a dry-hop). These are symbolic to the ideology of the project (modernization and reimagining, while paying respect). These hops are developed through breeding programs, which modernized historical varieties of hops.
The can design was by Jackson and includes 4 versions
-A vintage throw-back to the original design
-A modernized vintage design featuring design concepts that are popular in craft breweries today (line art)
-A more high design variation that is black with the bull image wrapping the can
-A minimalistic version featuring a red backdrop and a white horseshoe, focusing on clean and crisp presentation
