About me and this site…

Jordi Morgan

Welcome to my commentary site, Jordi Morgan’s Atlantic Advocate. Averse as I am to EVER refer to myself in the third person, I’m doing so here as the name “Atlantic Advocate” belongs to a monthly magazine published from 1952 to 1996 and served the Maritimes well from it’s publishing house at the University of New Brunswick.

The original Atlantic Advocate’s declaration of intent was to “to fight the battles of the Atlantic provinces which will win for them a fair place in the life of Canada.” While I don’t expect my blog will have the kind of impact the original publication had on the culture of the region (nor the literary or poetic quality) I do hope it will serve as an effective voice for small business in the region.

I want this blog to be a more personal conversation than what you may read or hear in the media as official positions from the CFIB. Perhaps a little more opinionated, but on many issues, my thinking is pretty closely aligned with that of CFIB members.

That’s not to say there is unanimity among all members of the organization on all things, however, CFIB has consistently advocated for a better tax structure, accountability of the public sector, policy which encourages the entrepreneurial spirit and sound research…and I’m down with all of that.

This site will focus primarily on issues relevant to our cities, our provinces and our region as a whole…but I’ll vent on national issues from time to time. I hope you’ll join the conversation.

Please feel free to weigh in on anything you read through the comment feature. If you agree, great, if you don’t…have at it. I am a strong proponent on the open debate of ideas. I would appreciate it though if you don’t ascribe my motivation to some weird conspiracy or another. They are just my thoughts.

PS

As a sidebar, the photos used in the banner are taken by my sister Katherine. I’m a little biased but I think they really are some of the most beautiful pictures of Nova Scotia I’ve ever seen. She has a wonderful eye. If you are interested in hi-def files of them, maybe to make a print or something…she’d like to make a little money off of these. I’d be happy to introduce you via her website or something. Just drop me a note.

  1. It doesn’t matter what you talk about. There was rarely an interview on your radio show that I didn’t want to listen too. I may not always agree with you, but I found that you almost always gave an unbiased interview. Hope you hear podcasts from you in the future.

  2. Nice to find you.
    I think your blog is a grand idea. A fair presentation if facts to raise awareness re current matters never hurts and you do it well.
    Please add me to your lust followers. Pat Walsh

  3. Hi Jordi,

    Loved your radio show….now hope your podcasts take off. I passed on the link to family/friends and encouraged them to do the same.

    At least I can enjoy your blog now that I found it; how often do you post?

  4. I do miss you on the talk radio show, your show was the best. I just heard today that you have landed a new job and will be on the talk show with Rick Howe. I will definetely be listening. Good luck to you with your new job and now that I have found your blog I will continue to come back to it.

  5. Can you keep blogging. I enjoy someone like you and similiar(Parker Donham) who show reason and impartiality on social issues. You do a lot better than the Halifax Herald who just wants to generate negativity and website hits.
