By all objective standards, Ted Byfield is the finest columnest in Canada today. In the twenty-five years he has been publishing Alberta Report, its progenitors, and offshoots, Byfield has delivered his unabashedly conservative message with wit and intelligence, engaging and challenging his reader, and never for a second boring him. Byfield's views, more than those of any other, epitomize the territory in which he lives. His championing of the west in its long-lasting struggle against the powers in Ottawa has played a major role in creating an antidote: the Reform Party of Canada.
In this book are gathered the best of Byfield's weekly columns from the past quarter-century. They cover everything from abortion to Zionism and are guaranteed to elicit one of two reactions in the reader--"Absolutely right!" or "Absolute crap!" For, love him or hate him, no one comes away from reading a Ted Byfield column feeling the slightest bit equivocal.
