Warren Kinsella: “The Charter protects all Canadians, every one of us, even when it is uncomfortable.”

Justin Trudeau said that, back in July, when he was asked about his government paying $10 million to Omar Khadr.  It’s a quote: “The Charter protects all Canadians, everyone of us, even when it is uncomfortable.” And here’s what Justin Trudeau said three months later, when the Quebec Legislature passed a racist law, a “law” ...

Warren Kinsella: There’s a political lie for every occasion

Warren Kinsella: Recipe For Hate is out!

Was just at Dundurn Press (and I’m now at the Patrician Grill to celebrate, where else) and they gave me a pile of copies of my new book, Recipe For Hate – and the good folks there told me that they’ve received a historically-huge order of the book from the US! Off to the Windsor ...

Warren Kinsella: Would you invite a neo-Nazi to your house? (Updated! Happy ending!)

Of course you wouldn’t. But Ontario’s three main political parties did. A committee comprised of all the main parties in the Ontario Legislature have given Canada’s leading white supremacist an opportunity to speak to them about abortion. I’m not making this up. Paul Fromm is one of the most notorious haters on the planet. A ...

Warren Kinsella: Dear Conservative readers of this web site 

It’s been several hours, and I still think this is the stupidest political move I’ve seen in months – and that’s saying something. Why, you ask? This isn’t a decision. It’s a suicide note. #cdnpoli https://t.co/ahrI7jT2bO — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) October 18, 2017 The Conservatives are tying themselves to every crazy/offensive thing Rebel does between ...

Warren Kinsella: The Rodents, the Filters, the Slinks: RIP Gord Downie

Those were some of the early names of the Tragically Hip. They got their start in the early Eighties in the nascent Kingston punk scene. A lot of bands got their start in punk rock (and some of us never left). I always felt the Hip’s Downie had that don’t-give-a-fuck punk ethos about him. RIP ...

Warren Kinsella: Ivanka Be Sedated

SFH, meanwhile, offer this to our fellow punk rocker. Gabba gabba hey, punk grrrl!

Warren Kinsella: Why did Scheer run away from his own press event?

Seriously.  He did.  Here’s the Globe: Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer abruptly ended a news conference and stopped taking questions from reporters on Monday when asked whether he was aware his campaign manager had worked out of the Rebel office during his leadership run. Hamish Marshall, Mr. Scheer’s former campaign manager, told The Globe and Mail ...

Warren Kinsella: Recipe For Hate mania strikes Ottawa!

I’m serious.  Check out the reaction of these hundreds of total strangers to the news that Recipe For Hate  – which Publisher’s Weekly called “riveting…Tension starts high and stays there in this unflinching page-turner, which offers a fascinating glimpse into the early punk scene and a moving testament to the power of friendship” – would be ...

Warren Kinsella: This young guy in Ottawa picked up Recipe For Hate!

Nice guy. Knew a lot about current events.  Says he looks forward to reading Recipe For Hate. Told him it is getting great reviews. We had a great chat, although it was a little odd that he put both of his hands around my neck at one point. It seemed to have some historic significance. Anyway, ...

Warren Kinsella: Column: desperate politicians do desperate things

How desperate is Justin Trudeau to keep NAFTA? Ask the Mexicans, now peering out from under the proverbial bus – where, you know, Trudeau pushed them. Pretty desperate. As they welcomed the Canadian Prime Minister to Mexico City on Thursday – and as they gamely extracted the Canadian-made stainless steel that had slipped between their ...

Warren Kinsella: Did Donald Trump obstruct justice?

The Brookings Institute has just released a 108-page, single-spaced, fully-footnoted, tightly-reasoned indictment of Donald Trump. The whole document is here. At the risk of spoiling it for you, here is the key part of the conclusion:  With that caveat, our review of the facts and the law leads us to the view that the president likely ...

Warren Kinsella: The Kinsellian Political Rules™

So, I tweeted about Donald Trump’s fired Chief of Staff being interviewed by Robert Mueller, the Russiagate special counsel. I said it recalls the Kinsellian Political Rule Two: never fire someone who knows lots of shit during a crisis.  This then moved some folks to ask what Rule One was, and so on. So here, ...

Warren Kinsella: Guy who said my wife should be raped and killed is arrested

Hamilton police release here: His original threat here. His latest threat to Yours Truly and our kids here. Well done to Hamilton police – and to my Hamilton council friend who led the way in getting this loser charged.

Warren Kinsella: Publishers Weekly: Recipe for Hate an “unflinching page-turner”!

Publisher’s Weekly is the book trade publication in the United States.  As Wikipedia notes, it is the “American weekly trade news magazine targeted at publishers, librarians, booksellers and literary agents. Published continuously since 1872, it has carried the tagline, “The International News Magazine of Book Publishing and Bookselling”. And I have never had one of my ...

Warren Kinsella: Recipe for Hate gets a not-bad review in Quill and Quire!

…and, in 25 years of writing books, I can tell you that this is the best review I’ve ever gotten from them. As I just told my publisher, I am a bit stunned. “Kinsella skilfully blends convincing depictions of both the punk scene and the racist underground…” “The novel is a suspenseful page-turner that also ...

Warren Kinsella: Shall we tell them about section 88.24(1) of the Municipal Elections Act?

You know, that part about how it’s illegal to campaign before you’re a candidate? Nah. Shall we tell them about section 88.24(1) of the Municipal Elections Act – i.e., it's illegal to campaign before you're a candidate? #topoli pic.twitter.com/ZHd06T7DeO — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) October 10, 2017

Warren Kinsella: Ten reasons I will be voting for John Tory

  So, Lisa and me are going to this Liberal-ish thing tonight where John Tory will apparently be present.  If and when he runs for Toronto’s mayor again, he’s the guy I’ll be voting for. There’s ten reasons for that. He’s an adult.  After the Ford Nation chaos, Toronto needed someone who was decent, thoughtful, ...

Warren Kinsella: The love of my life, in her modelling days

She’s even more beautiful now. 

Warren Kinsella: The pigs of liberalism

That’s the title of Ross Douthat’s column in today’s Times. It’s important. Maybe [Weinstein’s] overdue exposure shows that the world has changed, and progressive industries are finally feminist enough to put their old goats out to pasture. But it might just show that a certain kind of powerful liberal creep only gets his comeuppance when he’s ...

Warren Kinsella: Holy Joly

Does she have photos of Justin Trudeau in a compromising position? Does he owe her a lot of money? Is she holding hostage a member of his family? There’s no longer any other rational or compelling explanation for “Minister” Melanie Joly being a “Minister,” is there? She is, hands down, the worst cabinet minister in ...
