Why so blue?

As Tiberge reports, the results of the first round of the presidential election in France have dispirited leading figures in the Blue Revolution there. And yet they vow to keep fighting for a renewed national covenant in France, knowing that soon the people will have to face reality and choose either something like the Blue Revolution or national suicide.

We may have slightly more or less breathing room in Canada, but for how long Mark Steyn asks.

Steyn, in pointing to our demographic weakness, tells us little of how can we renew our national covenant and make it something immigrants will want to join, to become self-ruling Canadians, and not just subjects of some multicultural empire. It is our job to build this covenant by getting out in public and representing ourselves and our nation in such a way that people can see that any competent individual can take the lead in doing something others will find attractive and want to join, promoting appreciation of the shared sense of honour, integrity, and faith on which all good government depends.

These questions of what we can do to renew confidence in our culture and nation are on the agenda again this week, as every Thursday, at the Covenant Zone/Blue Scarf meeting in the atrium of the Vancouver Public Library, central branch, 7-9pm, in front of Blenz Coffee. Please join us; look for the blue.

I'm having problems with my computer and haven't been able to stay in touch properly but I will be at the meeting this evening in spite of all the troubles plaguing me otherwise.

It's always a pleasure to meet and spend a few hours of discussion and spirit raising. And it keeps getting better each time. See you then.

Maybe things are better now in computer world here. Regardless, I will show up at the library. Hope to fight my way through the crowd of covenantors.
