Politics has become a war of shifting definitions with both the Conservatives and the Liberals becoming ‘progressives’ and ‘collectivists’ yet continuing to call themselves something they clearly are not.

Professor Bruce Pardy of Queen’s University, Professor Emeritus Salim Mansur of Western University and Robert Vaughan of Just Right Media try to make some sense of the confusing labels.

Rounding out the discussion is why the People’s Party of Canada failed to capture the support of Canadians in the last federal election even though they lie squarely in that “sweet spot of liberty” reserved for the individualistic, classical liberals.

Rethinking Canada—The alienation of The West

In the first of a 3-part series Salim Mansur, Professor Emeritus at Western University, speaks with Robert Vaughan of Just Right Media, and Salim’s Campaign Manager in the 2019 election, about the failings of Canada’s system of government.

The Western provinces and rural Canadians are once again ignored in Parliament as the Liberals under Justin Trudeau have been reelected primarily with the support of the urban voters of Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa.

Regardless of the part in power the dominance of the Laurentian elite in Canadian politics is something which dates back to the founding of our nation and has been a constant irritant to many Canadians outside of Ontario and Quebec who wish to be treated as equal partners in what is supposed to be a Federation of equal provinces.

In Part 1 Salim suggests that the debate on a triple-E Senate needs to be revisited to once and for all address the inequities built into our Westminster-style system of government.

While Boris Johnson may not be properly grouped into that class of populist leaders like a Trump, Orbán, or Farage his recent reelection and resultant resounding majority in Parliament has captured the resentment most voters in that nation have towards the elites who have denied them the break from the EU they demanded in 2016.

Salim Mansur, Professor Emeritus at Western University, joins Robert Vaughan to discuss the election and how it might portend a bright future for Canada’s own populist People’s Party.

The People's Choice

In choosing our representatives for public office, are the winning candidates in any given election really ‘the people’s choice’? Or do they win for completely different reasons?

The answer to these questions may surprise you.

Many believe that ‘strategic voting‘ is what ultimately decides the winner – where voters are not voting for a particular candidate, but against another. And while it turns out that this is true for a significant number of voters (35%), statistics reveal that many other significant voting patterns are contributing to a final electoral outcome.

Perhaps most surprising is that 57% of voters (according to a Leger poll conducted after the last Canadian election) say that they voted “based on their political convictions, without any thought to their candidates’ chances of winning.” Continue reading »
