Gerry Nicholls is a communications consultant and writer who has been called a “political warrior” a “brilliant strategist” and one of the “canniest political observers in Canada.”
He has worked as a consultant in both the United States and Canada and was formerly a senior officer in the National Citizens Coalition.
A regular columnist with the Ottawa Hill Times, his work has also appeared in the Globe and Mail, the National Post and in the Sun Media chain; and he has appeared on countless TV and radio public affairs programs. He is the author of the book, Loyal to the Core, Harper, Me and the NCC.
“Loyal to the Core is a daring and provocative work. It deserves to be read by conservative activists and politicos.” – Western Standard
“This is a very important book.” -- Michael Coren, TV host
“A fascinating read” --- Seamus O'Regan, Canada AM
“I really enjoyed Loyal to the Core. It’s a great book”, - Charles Adler, radio host.
"Loyal to the Core should be required reading for anyone considering or starting a career at a conservative think tank or in electoral politics in general …Consider Loyal to the Core a cautionary tale that’s also a funny, easy read – with a few highly “stealable” ideas for media campaigns thrown in for good measure.”- Kathy Shaidle, author Tyranny of Nice
“Every Canadian remotely interested in politics and the state of the country should have a read of Loyal to the Core. – blogger Wendy Sullivan
"It’s rare to find a politico, however, who is equally passionate about policy and strategy, but columnist, pundit, author and Western Standard blogger Gerry Nicholls is such a person." Matthew Johnson, owner Western Standard
"If you are a conservative who wonders how conservatives can communicate their message in a hostile media climate, Loyal to the Core is a must read." -- At Home in Hespeler
"You HAVE TO read this book!" -- Connie Fournier Free Dominion
Human Rights by then will not exist. We will be under the control of a 'group' that will run this country through a recognized canadian political party- take a look at lebanon.
The signs are all here already: attack on freedom of press, speech and religion.
I wonder also Mr Nicholls my grandfather was a child immigrant from the slums of Glasgow. When do I get my apology and suitable cash offering he never wanted to come here. Having said that he just got on with it.
Anonymous 2 You should be very proud of you father who chose not to become a victim. Today everyone is a victim, and its so tiresome. p.p.
Human Rights Commissions? Soon there will be no need for them. We will all be equal.
I'm wondering when I will be getting my apology from Merry Ole England for kicking my ancestors off their land in Ireland back in the day?
When are the Irish going to get their apology from Canada for No Irish Need Apply in 1846 and the thousands of deaths on Grande Isle?
Not holding my breath.......
A little over the top here I'd say.
How many years before the government will have to apologize for allowing the apartheid of the first nations to continue?
... Gerry... it depends on whether we merely continue along the tribal collectivist path of seeing ourselves divided into groups; or through our present efforts, learn to value and respect each other as unique individuals.
... The challenge is that while there is an endless supply of leaders of groups- out for their group's advantage at the expense of others- there is no one to defend Canadians as individuals.
... Our hope, of course, was in our current PM, yet he has proved himself indistinguishable from any other politician pandering to any demanding group.
The problem is not with human rights commissions themselves, but rather some of the rulings that have come out of them. I think it is reasonable to prohibit discrimination in the workplace and but I am a strong defender of free speech and only if hate speech that involves threats towards a group, intimidation, advocating violence or genocide should be banned. There is no right to not be offended. Besides politically incorrect views would be eliminated by shutting those people up, if anything it just encourages those views. Rather allowing them to express themselves and challenging their views is the proper avenue. As Voltaire once said "I don't agree with a word you say, but I will defend until the day I die for the right for you to say it". And that is exactly how I feel about Mark Steyn and Ezra Levant.
Besides, when people abuse human rights commissions, this undermines their legitimacy and hurts those who truly do need them such as those being fired or denied a job due to race.
