    The National Post is the last bastion of good political writing in Canadian news. The Globe and Mail’s stable of columnists is an embarrassment given how they claim to be Canada’s leading newspaper.
    I hope the NP can replace Jonas with a writer of equal talent.

    I read Vengeance many years ago and enjoyed it very much. It was my parents’ book and now sits on my bookshelf. Will try to get the kids to read it.

    I remember reading George Jonas way back when, in the 70s and 80s, when the Canadian media was nearly devoid of conservative writing on foreign policy. Back then in the Trudeau years the corporate media supported totalitarian governments.

    We will never again see a principled/ gifted conservative journalist of Mr. Jonas’
    caliber…….. I will miss his articles .
