I Marched For Hillary In Niagara Falls (Sort Of)

I noticed a man checking his iPhone ahead of me and reading aloud GOP candidates poll numbers for Trump, Cruz and Kasich to what appeared to be his father and mother. Was that a look of glee I spotted that Trump was number one?" I whispered to my friend same. "Oh no. Don't go there."

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

Ryan Maloney | Posted 03.31.2016 | Canada Politics

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.

Trump Flip-Flops On Abortion Comments

Capt. Trevor Greene

In March 2013, the Scottish government gave the green light to its most controversial wind project proposal. It wasn't controversial because it was near an environmentally sensitive area so unique that it has been called "Scotland's Amazon," but for its proximity to Trump International Golf Links.

There Is A Reason The Right Wing Is Attacking Free Trade

In many countries, there is a debate over how much power we give to corporations. And it is boosting populist right-wing parties and left-wing parties that are against trade. In Europe, many of the right-wing parties are opposing free trade agreements. At the same time, from the left of the spectrum, voices such as Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn are also targeting free trade.

I'm Standing Up To The Trump Supporters In My Facebook Feed

I see you. I see you lurking in the periphery of my Facebook feed, posting pro-Trump rhetoric and awful hate speech. I mean, you aren't saying the things presidential candidate Donald Trump is, but you are sharing them. You are siding with him. I could have blocked you. I could have hidden your posts from my view, or I could have just defriended you. But I didn't, and I won't.

The Rest Of The World Needs A Backup Plan If Trump Wins

Abubakar Kasim | Posted 03.11.2016 | Canada Politics
Abubakar Kasim

Building progress and trust, as the U.S. did, takes a long time to accomplish far more than constructing a building. But Trump will help destroy such progress if he is elected as the president of the United States. All the respect and admiration the world used to have towards this great country will vanish into thin air.

Don't Expect Trudeau To Pick A Fight With Trump In Washington

David Leonhardt | Posted 03.10.2016 | Canada Politics
David Leonhardt

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.

The Qualified Welcoming of Syrian Refugees

Maria Calleja

The responses of individuals and countries to the Syrian Refugee Crisis has been a bit of an informal test on the level of humanity within individuals and nations. Even though outwardly Canada seems to have embraced the incoming refugees, I think some people have forgotten the compassion and despair that was felt when the image of Alan Kurdi's lifeless body, was seared into our collective unconscious.

Trump: The World's Best Content Marketer?

Selena Cameron | Posted 02.02.2016 | Canada Politics
Selena Cameron

The one thing that has caught us off guard about Donald Trump: he's proven to be a savvy, reliable and, frankly, brilliant self-marketer. He knows what to say, when to say it, and to whom -- and how to elicit the reaction he wants when he needs it.

Silencing White Men Endangers True Equality In Canada

Ujjal Dosanjh

Canada continues to make important strides toward more equality. But there are storm clouds on the horizon that endanger the continuing pursuit of true equality. What started as a legitimate change to bring about equality and transformation of how we viewed, treated and spoke about each other has now ossified into a rarely breached wall of silence, a silence reinforced by the onset of the West's indifference to its own good, bad or ugly -- but distinct -- societies, their values and norms. Call it white man's burden or guilt, a guilt for the sins of the past now manifesting itself in the white man's fear.

Trump Is Hiding Behind The First Amendment

Maria Calleja | Posted 12.30.2015 | Canada Politics
Maria Calleja

Suddenly, I became aware that this comment thread had opened a window for me into the American ideal of freedom and how virulently many Americans support the First Amendment without any consideration of the violence that hate speech causes. I realized that the concepts of inclusivity, diversity and multiculturalism that I had studied were not the first things on these people's minds. I began to think that these concepts didn't figure into their equation at all.

What Donald Trump's Words Feel Like To Muslims Like Me

I'll tell you how it feels to hear Trump -- a front-running candidate to lead the world's most powerful country -- say he wants a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States." How it feels to hear supporters say "send them all back."

'Anonymous' Hacker Group Goes After Trump

“The more the United States appears to be targeting Muslims — not just radical Muslims — you can be sure that ISIS will be putting that on their social media campaign."

Donald Trump Should Be Treated Like The Extremist He Is

Abubakar Kasim | Posted 12.11.2015 | Canada Politics
Abubakar Kasim

As the media vigorously tries to answer the root causes of radicalism, I wish they would do the same about the outrageous Republican candidate that is Mr. Trump. What, or who, radicalized him? His actions mirror the fanatics and extremists who seek to divide us and create mistrust and hate between neighbours.

I'm Canadian, But Trump Makes Me Want To Be American

Aurangzeb Qureshi | Posted 12.10.2015 | Canada Politics
Aurangzeb Qureshi

Before I talk about the wretched Muslims ruining America, I'm going to admit I'm not American. I am Canadian, which I realize is pretty unfortunate. To make up for this deficiency, I've always pretended to be American. I pretend because it is feels great to be "exceptional" and more civilized than the rest of the world. I pretend because it makes me feel safer to fear others who are different. I pretend because American Republican politicians aren't afraid to demonstrate their overt bigotry by generalizing an entire group of people. Now, it's time to finally stop pretending and fulfill my true destiny.
