Why are we here?
Meaningful, informed, open discussion – is there anything more important to the maintenance of a democratic society?
That’s what this site is about. An opportunity to share informed opinion and engage in a conversation about some of the pressing matters of our day.
I view my role as a Senator as providing informed, considered and independent perspective on current issues. I will speak from an Albertan perspective, and also as an independent progressive conservative Senator – which further frees me to do this job. I am not subject to party discipline or approved policy directions, which creates a wonderful opportunity.
The opportunity is to approach issues with an open mind and no pre-determined agenda – and to engage with you in an on-going conversation. After all, that’s how we have always done it in Canada. We are a nation built, not by wars or conquest, but through a series of conversations.
Thank you for taking the time to visit – I hope you find the information useful and will join in the conversations .
