Go Tasha!

You can listen to Tasha Kheiriddin on CBC Radio's Sunday Edition right here (Real Player). You can follow Adam's and Tasha's media appearances on their website.

Tasha is the co-author, with Adam Daifallah, of Rescuing Canada's Right, a book that seeks to outline a long-term direction and vision for conservatives in Canada. They argue that we need to build a new infrastructure, one that includes a love of liberty through various grassroots organizations (like the Liberty Summer Seminar). You can hear her talk about this issue at the most recent LSS here.

Tasha won't mince words--she says that both of Canada's major parties share a particular problem. Namely: Statism. She gives the Chaoulli decision as a case-in-point. When the decision came down, instead of seeing this as an opportunity, Peter MacKay stood up in the House and accused the Liberals of under-funding health care.

Her insights on environmentalism and fiscal policy are spot on. Instead of bureaucracies, we should look to property rights as a possible solution for the environment. Instead of taking more from Canadians, the government should leave more in our pockets.

Take a listen. She appears with Senator Hugh Segal, and the discussion is exciting.

Tasha said the Tories and the Liberals share one ideology -- "statism" -- on CBC Radio. Way to go!

Don't waste your time.

The book is full of childish rhetoric and little information. Many references in each chapter, most are un-credible sources of opinion. Well, OK there is a good review of the PC and C parties -- Part One. About 23 pages that is a good read; little enough that you could give it a quick read on the shelf.
