Canada has sent a powerful message that reverberates across all factions: Canada stands with Muslims. This is what M-103 accomplishes. And this is the kind of religious tolerance and inclusiveness that make Canada a model for diversity around the world.

Federal Budget Brings Back Slippery, Cynical Liberal Party Of Old

Thanks to the federal budget presented by Finance Minister Bill Morneau, we saw not the self-described feminist, environmentalist, progressive Justin T, but the reigning prime minister of austerity and broken promises. Clearly, "sunny ways" for the "middle class" are no longer part of his weather forecast.

I Won't Vote For Anti-Islamophobia Motion Because All Canadians Are Equal

What needs to be made clear is that most Canadians challenging this motion are not challenging the issues facing the Muslim communities, or that racism does not exist; what they are uncomfortable with in this motion is the fact that it is favouring one community over others.

The tone of the questioning can range from being sympathetic to hostile to anything in between. This is why the PM's town hall tour raised so many eyebrows. In an age when a viral social media post can derail a career, most politicians avoid these sorts of high-wire acts like the plague.

Black Lives Matter Toronto And The Fight For Good PR

I'm not sure who is advising the Black Lives Matter Toronto chapter. Social justice should be about resolving issues that exist and preventing new ones from popping up. Regressive justice and the approach of BLMTO seems to be creating division. They're stepping on others and provoking controversy. Making such outlandish commentary and actions, they become their own worst enemy.

It's Time For Kathleen Wynne To Consider Stepping Aside

Andrew Tumilty

Some decisions in politics are easy. It is not hard to oppose Trump and every vile thing he stands for. In general though political decisions are not often so clear cut. In 2017 -- sooner rather than later -- Premier Kathleen Wynne will have such a decision to make about her future, and in fact the future of the province.

Dear Premier Wynne: I Would Have Fired You Long Ago

Kevin O'Leary

Thank you for your letter. I have been writing you for a while now and was getting worried you were never going to write back. I'm getting involved in the Conservative leadership race because I can't stand watching incompetent politicians destroy my country. You and Justin Trudeau are two of them. Rachel Notley would be the third.

Trudeau Can Still Protect Canada From Trump's Populist Storm

As human tornado Donald Trump begins his apocalyptic presidency and Conservative leadership candidates Kellie Leitch and Kevin O'Leary try to emulate him here at home, it's time for Trudeau to get back to his old ways before the southern storm front crosses our border.

Sexism Lives Within Indigenous And Liberal Organizations

There are a lot of kind, educated, empowering and reasonable men in our communities, but sometimes they fail to acknowledge what we deal with. Sometimes there's so few of us working at an organization that we become representative of Native American Women concerning every issue, no matter our personal experiences, or specializations, or politics on representation.

Trudeau's Broken Promises Lead To Tragedies Like Lionel Desmond's

My message to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is that Lionel Desmond's death and his killing of his family could have been avoided. It's time to stop lying to veterans. It's time to stop fighting veterans.

Trudeau Must Heed Opposition Call To Reinstate Per-Vote Subsidy

While both the issues of "cash for access" and electoral reform will continue to dog the government in 2017, it is the drip-drip of the former that could prove fatal to the credibility of the government. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau should embrace the constructive suggestion of the three opposition parties.

We Need An Immediate Solution To 'Runaway' Climate Change

Harrison Samphir | Posted 11.28.2016 | Canada Politics
Harrison Samphir

As Justin Trudeau prepares to meet with the premiers in early December to finalize a pan-Canadian climate plan, a key contradiction remains in the Liberal's framework for a low-carbon economy. Namely, that the government's steadfast commitment to expanding fossil fuel exports is fundamentally antithetical to real action on climate change.
