Canadians Face Greatest Threat To Privacy Ever

Justin Trudeau has cancelled Parliament, is confiscating private property, and is now ‘strongly recommending’ a potentially invasive government tracking app for our phones. The Canadian government claims it will offer contact tracing apps on a voluntary basis. That may not always be the case. The Emergencies Act grants the government extraordinary powers. Trudeau sought to […]

Today’s digital economy means affordable, reliable access to consistent high-speed internet is a determinant to economic productivity, and individual equality of opportunity. Despite the CRTC designating broadband as an essential service more than 5 years ago, many Canadians in rural and remote regions still do not have consistent access to this essential service.

Canadians need to have at least as many Property Rights as Foreign Investors

The newly-signed Canada/United States/Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) on free trade provides greater property rights protections for foreign investors than currently exist for Canadians. Canadians should enjoy at least the same private property rights as foreigners who invest in Canada. I recently introduced legislation, Bill C-222, An Act to amend the federal Expropriation Act (protection of private […]

Big Banks Abandon Rural Canada

Today, I am calling for federal action to improve competition to Big Banks. With the Big Banks closing down more and more rural bank branches, action is needed to make it easier for banking solutions to fill the smaller markets being abandoned by the Big Banks. Many small communities have neither internet access nor a […]

Wolfe Island Flood Victims Ask for Help

Can Members of Parliament Pass A Firearms Quiz?

Scary Looking Gun Hunt

Style Over Substance

Private property, heritage, culture, and firearms rights are bedrock issues for the people of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke. The Throne Speech is a clear attempt to change our culture. Lawful firearms owners are tired of being blamed for the failures of the Liberal party. Banning firearms in Canada to fight crimes committed in the United States is a […]
