Editorially, the paper has a populist stance and sees itself as siding with the average/ordinary person in government and taxation topics. It generally follows the positions of neo-conservatism in the United States on economic issues and traditional Canadian/British conservatism. Editorials promote individualism, self-reliance, the police, and a strong military and support for troops. For instance, cartoonist Andy Donato drew a cartoon comparing David Miller to Adolf Hitler after he refused to allow a debate on Chief Julian Fantino's contract renewal.

Editorials condemn high taxes, high gas prices, and perceived government waste.
