Should Canada Post Be Privatized?

The OECD has recommended that Canada Post be privatized to boost productivity. I concur. We would most likely get better service as a result. It would operate a lot more efficiently because you wouldn't have a bunch of government bureaucrats running the show.

Freedom and Liberty

I believe in a very limited government and the freedom to allow the people the freedom to create, innovate,and to conduct business with little taxes and regulation. I believe individuals should be allowed to protect themselves and their families. I believe parents should have the freedom to raise their children they way they see fit. I believe in free speech, the right to offend,and the right to be offended.
As I was just surfing around the internet I came across this video on Liberty and Freedom.It sums it very well. I only wish more people would get it.

Some of our freedoms have eroded away over the years. We cannot allow further erosion.

What comes to immediately comes to mind is free speech and the HRCs.
We need to fight for elimination of at least Section 13 of Human Rights Act if not the Human Rights Commissions and Tribunals in their entirety. We need to apply the pressure on all MPs to take action and not take no for an answer. Maybe we should try tea parties to apply pressure.

"A society that puts equality ... ahead of freedom will end up with neither ... " -- Milton Friedman

"Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and lost it, have never known it again." -- Ronald Reagan

"Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it."-- George Bernard Shaw, Maxims for Revolutions, 1903

“Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it.” --Justice Learned Hand, 1944

"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."----
John 8:32 (King James Version)

"The price of freedom is eternal vigilance."
Thomas Jefferson
