Planned Parenthood supports abortion, yes, but this is not newly divisive. So, what could it be? Why specifically now would Planned Parenthood donations diminish? This a question they would rather let fade into obscurity -- A group calling themselves the Center for Medical Progress began releasing an investigative sting operation into the practices of Planned Parenthood south of the border. Two actors posing as buyers of organs for research purposes got undercover video allegedly showing that Planned Parenthood in the USA engages in the sale of fetal hearts, livers, kidneys and heads ("calvarium") for profit.

Nigel Wright's Testimony Is Insulting to Canadians

Nigel Wright didn't have a personal obligation to pay Duffy's debts, as he proclaimed. His personal obligation was to serve Canada and to maintain the integrity of its political institutions. We should be repelled by any notion that we should admire -- and excuse -- an incredibly rich individual who goes into public service and then uses his private financial resources to make political problems (and possibly crimes) disappear.

Why Don Meredith Is Not an Embarrassment to the Black Community | Posted 06.23.2015 | Canada Politics

Don Meredith's fall from grace is seen as a collective one, because there are a lot of black people who see his presence in the Senate as a collective achievement; he's seen as "one of us who made it to the top." We are so eager to see black faces in positions of power that we get caught up in the "excitement" of seeing someone who looks like us on the political stage, and we fail to pull back the curtain.

Last week, FIFA took centre stage in the world media for all the wrong reasons. This week, the beautiful game will rely on its most beautiful players to re-focus attention on the sport itself. That means eyes of the soccer world will be on Canada for the entirety of the 2015 Women's World Cup, which starts on June 6 with a pair of matches in Edmonton and culminates on July 5 in Vancouver.

If Governments Aren't Wasting Money, They're Doing it Wrong

Tales of government waste make for excellent news headlines. Bev Oda's infamous $16 orange juice probably got more media attention than the $45 billion F35 procurement debacle. Part of the reason is that people understand the value and cost of orange juice. Rather than focusing on waste, analysts and the media should instead focus on getting more value for money from governments. We need to pay less attention to tens of dollars and more attention to billions.

James Franco recently came under fire for allegedly flirting with a 17-year-old Scottish girl, via Instagram. "I'm embarrassed, and I guess I'm just a model of how social media is tricky," explained Franco."It's a way people meet each other today, but what I've don't know who's on the other end."

A Senateless Canada Might Not Be As Effective As We Think

Glen Pearson | Posted 07.27.2013 | Canada Politics
Glen Pearson

At present, Canadians are of the belief that the political class has sunk so far beyond redemption that little of importance remains in the Senate. That's an illusion, and deserves some further thought and reflection. While there are non-trivial problems within the Canadian senate, it still serves a purpose.
