It is the time of year when Canadians take a weekend to overeat, enjoy family and friends and do something we ought to do more often: reflect on what we have to be thankful for.
After all, we live in a great country, we are strong and free.
This after a few billion dollar fiascoes, not to mention a boondoggle in the making with the MaRS Discovery District (taxpayers are paying $450,000 a month for interest payments on a mostly empty government building).
In four years, let's hope Ontario has a new government for which we can be thankful.
A government that will step back from the very edge of the fiscal cliff and restore fiscal sanity.
As always, Canadians should give special thanks to our military at this time of year.
Their rich tradition, history and stellar international reputation is a gem in our nation's crown.
This year particularly, as Canadians join the international community in fighting the cancer that is ISIS, our thanks to the order pandora charms men and women putting their lives on the line to protect freedom and decency in Canada and abroad is even more important.
By extension, we should be grateful Stephen Harper is our prime minister.
You don't have to agree with him on every policy issue, but under Harper's leadership Canada has been taking principled stands on various conflicts around the world.
Russia's aggression against Ukraine, Israel fighting Hamas terrorists and, of course, ISIS lunatics beheading innocents every week.
When contrasting Harper to the two major opposition leaders NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair and third party leader Justin Trudeau if either were to be at the helm of our country, Canada would take a back seat and be a mere passenger on important world affairs.
At least Mulcair, though out of touch with many Canadians, says what he means and means what he says.
For the NDP leader, this comes pandora australia stockists from a place of conviction, not political expediency.
Meanwhile, the leader of the once robust Liberal Party, now an empty shell compared where to get cheap pandora charms to the natural governing party it once was, is pleased to practice the politics of division.
Trudeau is more content with tilting at windmills and alienating his own party's stalwarts than showing leadership.
Closer to home, I am not particularly thankful for the ridiculous number of debates in the race to become the next mayor of Toronto.
These distract from real and important issues, waste pandora jewelry gold bracelet the time of the candidates and only serve to feed into the pathetic special interest politics we see everyday.
In 2018, the major candidates should come to an agreement to limit the number of debates and focus on important, city wide issues.
Although they are aggravating beyond belief, I am thankful for the loony and radical left.
Sure they are annoying, but comically so, to the point of parody.
Naomi Wolf and her conspiracy theories only hurt her cause. Wolf has stated the ISIS beheadings are staged and the families of the victims are actors.
