Canadian Common Sense is a blog that discuses Canadian politics and all things Canada.  Our small dedicated team aims to get Canadians talking about the issues of our time.

Issues such as the Syrian Refugee crisis to Canada’s participation in the American lead coalition against the radical Islamic State (ISIS), issues including bias in media, holding our government to account, holding public sector unions to account are just some of the issues we regularly discuss.

We welcome all thoughts and perspectives; all voices to join the conversation.

Patricia Harris (patpeeves) is a published author with a passion for writing.

Patricia was also an integral part in the original Kevin’s Common Sense Blog.  We’re glad she decided to come back and write with us under our new banner.

Known for her flare in her writing style, Patricia is once again lending her talent to the Canadian Common Sense team.


Join the conversation, join the debate.

Are you interested in doing more than merely commenting on our various blog posts?  Do you have a passion for writing?  Are you familiar with WordPress?  If you’d like to become an author, send Kevin an e-mail with a sample of your work.

The only way discussion works is when opposing viewpoints debate the issues.  It is every citizens civic duty to participate in the dialogue that shapes our future; this is how democracy works.
