Warren Kinsella: This week’s column: never missing an opportunity to miss an opportunity

You never achieve great things if you don’t take risks. How Conservative leader Andrew Scheer doesn’t understand this is an enduring mystery. He never misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity, per the cliché. Take (please) Conservative MP Gerry Ritz. Last week, Gerry – who (a) thinks he is funny and (b) has unfettered access ...

Warren Kinsella: Jimmy the K? Not OK.

From the new Hill Times: Former eight-term Liberal MP Jim Karygiannis, who is now a Toronto city councillor, is considering running in Toronto’s mayoral race in next year’s municipal election. “The desire is always there,” Mr. Karygiannis told The Hill Times last week, but declined to get into details of his decision-making process. The next ...

Warren Kinsella: About that Forum poll: Tories 39, Libs 35, Dippers 15

Three things. One, it’s Forum. They’re the ones who said there’d be a Parti Québécois majority, a BC NDP majority, a Wildrose majority, and…you get the picture. Two, it’s a poll. Every single poll in the U.S. Presidential campaign got the outcome wrong, for weeks. Polls aren’t terribly reliable, these days. Three, as my lovely and ...

Warren Kinsella: Take a knee

Warren Kinsella: Donald Trump hates the NFL

…and many other things, too. So SFH wrote a song about it. 

Warren Kinsella: Out of the White House, to be specific

Warren Kinsella: Home

Warren Kinsella: Ben Mulroney and me talking about defending his Dad’s biggest legacy

Not what I expected to be doing this morning.  Or, like, ever. 

Warren Kinsella: Adler and me on Ritz is crackers, Blandy Scheer and more!

Right here.

Warren Kinsella: SFH LP now available for pre-order on Ugly Pop! Buy many copies!

Ugly Pop is the best punk rock label in the world, hands down.  And the geriatric punksters in SFH are tickled to be on it.  Get multiple copies today! Makes excellent Christmas, Hanukkah and birthday gifts!

Warren Kinsella: Hell freezes over, etc. 

My Daisy colleague Rob shot this. It’s Ben Mulroney and me talking about protecting NAFTA on CTV’s Your Morning. Him, the son of the guy who ushered in free trade, and a ghostly-looking me, the Chrétien guy, defending his father’s greatest legacy.  Life is full of such ironies. 

Warren Kinsella: I have literally watched this ten times

This is the best thing I have ever seen on the Internet. https://t.co/KNs5GiDDUA — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) September 21, 2017 Liam Gallagher making tea is the best thing you'll see today. As you were. pic.twitter.com/JaAB0p6Qr2 — BBC Three (@bbcthree) September 20, 2017

Warren Kinsella: Canada’s alt-Right have chosen their candidate

…and, long term, I don’t think that’s so good for that candidate – running, as he is, to be mayor of Canada’s most diverse city. And it’s not an outlier, either, by the by: the far Right have made a clear decision. The proof is right there in plain view.

Warren Kinsella: “We in the Empire have your Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock held prisoner, and we demand dilithium crystals for their release!”

Warren Kinsella: Your Ward News Nazis watch

More here. FYI: Haters behind neo-Nazi rag are in court this a.m. to face criminal charges. Crown says @lisakinsella & me need not be there. #topoli — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) September 21, 2017

Warren Kinsella: Sticker on the cover of ‘SFH Kinda Suck’ LP

I rather like it, so I thought I’d share it.  Out on iTunes here.  Out on vinyl on Ugly Pop soon!

Warren Kinsella: One from the archives. Note well, fellow Albertans.

Warren Kinsella: Free advice to political staffers

From Allen J., from my piece in HuffPo: Preliminaries done, MacEachen rendered his advice. I didn’t take notes, but I never forgot what he said. “Two things,” he said. “Don’t stay longer than two years. You will grow cynical, and that will hurt you and it will hurt the ones you serve.” He paused. “The ...

Warren Kinsella: Neo-Nazi scumbags to face justice – finally

Full story here: The editor and publisher of an Upper Beach-based tabloid will be heading to court Thursday, Sept. 21 to face criminal charges. Earlier this summer, Beach residents Lisa and Warren Kinsella used a little-known legal tool to convince a judge to lay charges against James Sears and Leroy St. Germain. The couple successfully argued ...

Warren Kinsella: The battle to save Sears Canada

We’ve worked for Sears Canada in the past, so this reported effort by Brandon Stranzl to save the company – and the jobs and pensions of several thousand Canadians – is of more than passing interest to me.  The fact that Stranzl gave all of his retention bonus (some $300,000) to pensioners suggests that this ...

Warren Kinsella: Man with giant Recipe for Hate sign on head invades Daisy Group

Frightens small children, etc. Film at eleven.

Warren Kinsella: Where’s the police? The Crown? The AG? Where’s the outrage? 

A tweet by James Sears, the Hitler-loving and Holocaust-denying rapist editor of Your Ward News.  Will anything be done by the authorities? I doubt it. 

Warren Kinsella: This week’s column: good advice from a veteran

The only reason sane people get involved in politics – or create a work of art, or write a book, or build a bridge, or climb mountains – is because they want to be immortal. We’re all going to die, sooner or later, and we want to be remembered for something. In my limited experience, ...

Warren Kinsella: John Tory is going to be pretty hard to beat – from the Right or Left

Check this out, from the folks at Campaign Research: What does that all mean?  It means that – at this stage – Toronto’s mayor is in pretty good shape, I’d say.  Two-thirds of voters won’t consider either Ford or Layton. John Tory has got a surprisingly big “net positive number,” and Doug Ford has a ...
