So, when I go to Raptors games, I’m confronted with the same thing over and over: the advertising of the Diamond and Diamond “law firm” everywhere I look. I won’t call them ambulance chasers, because that would be mean. But, in recent months, I’ve sometimes been moved to comment on how their public relations efforts […]
The morning of the Paris massacre, this surfaced on the Internet: “Stephen Harper’s willingness to be tough with terrorists and dictators – in effect, punching above Canada’s foreign policy weight class – is something to be admired, whether you agree with him or not. But will it pay electoral dividends? Can Harper actually win an […]
It is very nice that you are helping out Mr. Vickers. He is a real hero. However, the person who should really be ambassador to Ireland is me. I may cause a few international incidents, but I am pretty sure none of them would result in an actual war. In any event, since Justin Trudeau’s […]
I’ve written books about the notion that, when it comes to speech, reasonable limits should indeed exist. Calling for genocide against a group of people, for example. Holocaust denial in the classroom. Child pornography. Here’s what I wrote about the issue of cartoons and religion almost exactly eight years ago to the day on this […]
Both, somewhat emotional. One is to state that (I think) I was wrong. In the Summer, I wrote this: “On the much-read National Newswatch Thursday morning, then, a column on Harper and foreign policy was the top headlined item. In it, the Public Policy Forum’s Dr. Don Lenihan wrote that Harper’s approach to foreign policy […]
More here and here. The question I (and others, apparently) ask is this: Is a civilization that lets two people freeze to death on busy streets really civilized? #topoli #onpoli #cdnpoli http://t.co/G6KsyWEC9q — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) January 7, 2015
It's about time! After months of dumb stubbornness, Prime Minister Stephen Harper finally relented and met yesterday with Ontario's duly elected premier, Kathleen Wynne.She only got less than an hour with him to discuss the many important issues facing the province and the country.

Dear Irritating People: I find this "the new normal" neologism extremely irritating. Stop using it. Sincerely, etc. — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) January 6, 2015
Hollett with a friend. Assorted Now employees and friends of its owner swarmed this wee web site yesterday, taking umbrage with what I had to say about the magazine’s boss (Hollett has no pony tail!) and approach (we think it’s okay to run ads trafficking in girls!). So, as expected, various other correspondents provided useful […]
He’s quite shy, as you can see.
Get ready. You can always tell when a federal election is coming in Canada. The political parties commence a frenzy of fundraising. The commentariat start speculating incessantly about when, exactly, the election will take place. The media start writing profiles of backroom “strategists” who real folks don’t care about. Oh, and conservatives start darkly whispering […]
Almost wipes out. Hilarity ensues.
Apropos of nothing, here is my new fave, Plague Vendor, live. The words above come from a comment below the fan’s video, and they sum things up rather nicely. There is god-like genius at work here, folks. PLAGUE VENDOR FINAL from Kevin Zacher on Vimeo.
Your Honour, we present this exhibit! He’s clearing the decks. Could be for the Fall, sure, but I still think the Spring. Who’s with me?
Now magazine is irritated with Your Humble Narrator. For a while – um – now, the alt weakly has been in a state of high dudgeon, and it would be super boring if it weren’t for this: I’m researching a column on some of the hypocrisies of the so-called Left, to try and figure out why they’re […]
Quote: “Mulcair is the only leader of a federal party who stands a fair chance of losing his job following the federal election, tentatively slated for later this year.” I’m not sure I agree with my colleague, who I almost always agree with. Here’s a couple other scenarios: The economy gets lousy, those criminal trials […]
Apologies for getting all Toronto-centric, but the media in The Centre of the Universe are this morning filled with stories about how the new mayor is going to “get tough” with illegally parked vehicles during rush hour, blah blah blah. There are dozens of such stories. Here’s the question I therefore asked on the Twitter […]
Me: "Wow, you slept late, buddy." Son 3: "Dad, I'm a teenager now. Teenagers sleep in." Me [with much sadness]: "Oh. Right." — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) January 4, 2015
