The first budget delivered by the Liberals signaled a return to 1970s Trudeaupian Liberalism, not just with its flagrant disregard for balanced budgets and ballooning debt, but also by disregarding a core accountability under our Constitution: Canada's military.

Justin Trudeau announced on International Women's Day that a Canadian woman will appear on the next series of bank notes expected in 2018. And the Bank of Canada is now inviting nominations as to who should appear on the bill. This is our chance to have a say and perhaps at the same time make a statement.

No, Mr. Mulcair, The PM Doesn't Need To Call Trump A Fascist

Let's imagine the prime minister went for it. Let's imagine he called Trump a fascist and urged U.S. Republicans to disown him, to shut down the circus. The story would make a much bigger splash than that photo of Trudeau striking a yoga pose on a desk shot in 2011 and inexplicably inescapable this week.

Let's Make The NDP Convention About Equity

Kennedy Stewart | Posted 03.30.2016 | Canada Politics
Kennedy Stewart

Enshrining an "equity mandate" would build on the tremendous work we have already done and make the NDP the most progressive party in the world when it comes to this issue. Trudeau certainly enjoys talking the equity talk, but by passing this motion the NDP will move miles ahead in walking the equity walk.

Trudeau, Don't Cut Youth Out Of The Federal Budget

Bilan Arte | Posted 03.22.2016 | Canada Politics
Bilan Arte

Are we a genuine focus, or was #PMJT merely appealing to student and youth voters by addressing our federal election campaign demands? Following a campaign with such a strong focus on young people, we should expect nothing less than Trudeau's promises to youth to be included in his first budget as prime minister.

Two degrees is the absolute red line that scientists say the world must not pass if we are to have any chance of stopping a growing climate crisis before it spins beyond our control. The 2-degree mark was only breached temporarily but it is a worrying sign that everyone, especially our elected leaders, need to pay attention to.

There is a serious prospect that none of the Canadian teams will make the National Hockey League playoffs, an issue that has been the object of a fair bit of discussion in the sports media. Last week hockey moved to the very center of cultural diplomacy when standing alongside Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, President Barack Obama questioned Canada's hockey dominance by pointing out that the Stanley Cup was currently the propriety of Chicago, the President's home town.

The First Ministers' Climate Declaration Falls Short

During the fall election, the federal Liberals committed to meet with the provinces within 90 days of COP21 negotiations in Paris to "develop a carbon pricing policy." This highly anticipated First Ministers' Meeting took place last week in Vancouver. Much like the Paris Agreement itself, the Vancouver Declaration may have been the best consensus we could have reasonably hoped for. But also like Paris, it doesn't go nearly far enough.

What can we expect Trudeau to say about Trump in Washington? Nothing. What can we expect him to say about diversity? And inclusiveness? And building bridges? A lot! In fact, it's hard to imagine Trudeau passing an hour without talking about those favourite topics of his. And in the current president, he is likely to find a receptive audience.
