    One Byfield Legacy: Relationships (Part 2)

    One Byfield Legacy: Relationships (Part 2)

    Last time, I announced the passing of Edward Bartlett Byfield.  Ted was a journalist at heart, but he was also a teacher, a historian and a political pundit responsible for coining the phrase “the west wants in”.  This became the rallying cry of the western-based Reform movement which eventually led to Stephen Harper’s nine years … Continue reading "One Byfield Legacy: Relationships (Part 2)"

    Ted Byfield is Gone: Relationships (Part 1)

    Ted Byfield is Gone: Relationships (Part 1)

    I may have completed the last blog a bit early!  It was entitled Goodbye 2021 and was a review of how awful 2021 was for many of us, particularly Faye and me.  I assumed the remaining two weeks of 2021 would be less disappointing, but that was not the case. 2021 ended with yet another … Continue reading "Ted Byfield is Gone: Relationships (Part 1)"

    Freedom’s Definition Expanded: Freedom (Part 8)

    Freedom’s Definition Expanded: Freedom (Part 8)

    Throughout this series, I have consistently defined freedom as having both choice and control.  I stated that the more one has freedom, the less one has fear, which in turn means having a greater sense of peace.  I also mentioned that being ignorant of the truth is often what leads to fear and loss of … Continue reading "Freedom’s Definition Expanded: Freedom (Part 8)"

    Freedom Needs to Be Defended: Freedom (Part 7)

    Freedom Needs to Be Defended: Freedom (Part 7)

    Edmond Burke has often been credited for saying, “All that needs happen for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.”  There is a lot of truth to this statement. Even though freedom is God given and inalienable, there are a lot of opposing forces at work to rob us of these freedoms. … Continue reading "Freedom Needs to Be Defended: Freedom (Part 7)"
