Welcome to my new blog!

The show has been airing on weekends the Corus radio network nationally for almost three years now and there have been many requests for a regular blog.

Glad to let you know that this blog will be a regular feature in this space and an opportunity for me to stay in touch on issues on weekdays.

Shortly I'll begin to post my thoughts on the biggest stories of the week whether they're national, provincial or international and look forward to reading your replies. 

Whether or not you agree with the positions I take isn't the important thing.  What is important is that you care to take the time to read the entries and post your views.
