Canadian Politicians Should Stop Meddling In Foreign Votes

Why were non-UK politicians around the world obsessed with weighing in on the Brexit debate? It's unbecoming for politicians to act like the nosy neighbour and get involved in the domestic dispute of a sovereign state. Unfortunately, Brexit has polarized the population in the UK. It has pitted regions against each other and has caused deep divides within political parties. But what's more troublesome is people that have no right to vote in the referendum aren't just engaged in the debate, they are attempting to influence its outcome. It's doubly worse that many of these people are elected politicians of foreign states.

Uber Needs to Learn it Can Follow the Rules and Disrupt

Uber, Inc., the start-up darling recently earning a $40 billion valuation has found itself embroiled in a high-stakes regulatory and public relations battle over its disruptive business model. Uber has a lot going for it: a profitable business model with substantial demand backed by revolutionary technology with the ability to transform every on-demand service. It's genius and about time the taxi industry is given a shake-up. So why is everyone ganging up on them? No, it's not a media-biased conspiracy as some would have you believe. It is hubris and an underestimation of the politicized stakeholder environment in which it operates.
