U.K. citizens may believe that they will have an easier time moving to Canada than the Americans. This is quite understandable since Canada shares so many things with the U.K. However, U.K. citizens will be disappointed to learn that none of this makes it any easier for them to move to Canada.

State surveillance programs spell serious consequences for business -- could Canada be next? A few weeks ago the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) rendered a judgment that invalidated the Safe Harbour Decision that heretofore had allowed U.S. companies to transfer and store personal data of EU citizens in the U.S. as long as they voluntarily agreed to respect certain principles.

Expanding Free Trade With Israel: A Step in the Wrong Direction for Canada

Tyler Levitan | Posted 07.31.2016 | Canada Politics
Tyler Levitan

In a Canada in which our current government has expressed undying loyalty to Netanyahu's regime, and where the opposition parties appear unwilling to publicly shame the government for its appalling disregard for the human rights of Palestinians, we cannot realistically expect the enactment of state sanctions against Israel any time soon. If the NDP wants to prove to Canadians that it is indeed the government in waiting, and that it's visibly different from the Conservatives, then we should all expect it to commit to taking action on this issue. Will the NDP, at the very least, commit to reforming CIFTA to exclude tariff-free imports of illegal Israeli settlement products

Should the Black Market Economy Count Towards GDP?

Salman Sakir | Posted 08.06.2014 | Canada Business

When drugs and prostitution are counted in calculating GDP, one could ask why the items in the basket are not increased. Forced labor, human trafficking and illegal organ trade are also elements of the black market. If drugs and prostitution are counted in calculating GDP, should a country also count forced labor and human trafficking in calculating GDP?

The EU Needs a 'One In, One Out' Strategy

Most of the laws in force in Germany today originated in Brussels. If an unpopular topic is rejected in the domestic arena, politicians frequently try to push it through via the EU. This often infringes the principle of subsidiarity, which stipulates that the EU should only handle what member states cannot handle themselves.
