Lots of choices for Kia EV6 all-electric crossover

The Kia EV6 will be popular as Canadian drivers make the move to all-electric vehicles

Lots of choices for Kia EV6 all-electric crossoverThe first dedicated all-electric vehicle from Kia is the EV6. Designed from the ground up as an electric-only vehicle, the EV6 shares a platform with corporate relatives, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the Genesis GV60. Although these three models have some related underpinnings, they each are distinctive. The Genesis GV60 is ultra-luxurious, the Ioniq 5…

Buying used: 2010-14 Ridgeline as much an SUV as a pick-up

Consumer Reports loved the Ridgeline

Buying used: 2010-14 Ridgeline as much an SUV as a pick-upThe adage: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” applies in spades to the Honda Ridgeline, which from 2010 up to at least 2014 was essentially unchanged in appearance, drivetrain layout, comfort level, and function. The Ridgeline was never intended to be a working truck in the same way as, oh, a Ford F-150 or…

Indigenous access to capital could be a game changer

... for the Canadian economy

Indigenous access to capital could be a game changerMost Indigenous peoples and nations are not opposed to resource development. In fact, almost every Indigenous community is involved at some level in forestry, commercial fishing, agriculture, oil and gas or mining already. What we are opposed to is being left out. For over a century, resources were extracted from our territories without our say…

Why your self-image is key to improved performance

Self-image is everything. What are you telling yourself about your role at work, at home, in sports or relationships?

Why your self-image is key to improved performanceI just about quit. I was almost two hours and 55 km into a 152-km GranFondo cycling event in Penticton, B.C., a few weeks ago when I felt like quitting. I had been riding hard and it was starting to get hot. As I struggled to climb a hill, it seemed like 50 riders passed…

What’s really behind higher milk prices

The Canadian Dairy Commission is morally and ethically compromised. It needs to distance itself from the dairy sector immediately

What’s really behind higher milk pricesEvery year, the Canadian Dairy Commission (CDC), a branch of the federal government, hires external consultants to assess the cost of producing milk on the farm. The CDC has never released any data about costing and has recommended farm milk price increases most years, eventually impacting retail prices and Canadian families. Since February, dairy product…

Papal apology must be the starting point for profound change

We all need to continue to pressure Pope Francis and the Catholic hierarchy to rescind the Papal Bulls of Discovery

Papal apology must be the starting point for profound changeSelf-development specialist Brian Tracy says, “People with clear, written goals accomplish far more in a shorter period of time than people without them could even imagine.” When I first read Call to Action 58 of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report, I thought it was an unrealistic pipe dream. It called on the Pope to…

Canada has a robust history of freedom

Freedom is as Canadian as maple syrup and the Canadian Rockies. Don’t let collectivists tell you otherwise

Canada has a robust history of freedomEarlier this year, I stumbled across a framed copy of the Canadian Bill of Rights, the liberty-expanding law promulgated by then-Prime Minister John Diefenbaker and passed by Parliament in 1960. I read the document years ago but seeing it up close reminded me of Canada’s long tradition of freedom, ranging from anti-slavery efforts in the late 18th…

Poilievre can put people back in charge with recall and referendums

A grassroots performance check on MPs and a way to axe poorly thought out policy

Poilievre can put people back in charge with recall and referendumsPoliticians spent the last two years giving themselves pay raises while the rest of us suffered through pay cuts, tax hikes, inflation and restrictions. The insult to injury? It’s the increasingly well-heeled politicians who are responsible for the pain many everyday Canadians are going through. Folks can’t afford to fill their vehicles, they’re struggling to…
