It's weird that our political parties fall along this arbitrary spectrum.

Canadians have good reason to question the government's "security" justification for the refusal.

Smokers should at least be 25, the article says.
Labour laws across this country have not kept up with the times. Written when most jobs were full time, and people could stay in one job to build a career and a life for their families, today's laws cannot adequately address the needs of workers in increasingly precarious temporary work and contract positions.
Arenas (ice-hockey or political) are the epicentres for unapologetic tributes. Accolades from the glory days are are embellished and exalted in a pursuit to replicate that power. As supporters, we are blind to the controversial changes implemented by the organization at hand, and refuse to acknowledge criticism from outside the bubble (myself included).
"It's pretty clear that the government is investing money differently."
"I worry that these kinds of constraints could actually really limit the quote unquote independence of the office in practice."

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.
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.

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 world is becoming more partisan, and we can understand why this is happening when you look at the consistency of global events that encourage impassioned and extreme points of view. Events like fi...
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.

That's about one quarter of the $3.27 billion budgeted to be spent on infrastructure programs in the 2016-2017 fiscal year.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.

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.

The Liberal party has a history of fiscal irresponsibility and running large deficits, but this Liberal government has started a trend of breaking major campaign promises.

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.

Dion steered clear of weighing in directly on comments Donald Trump made during the U.S. election campaign.
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.
The government wants 90 per cent of Canada's electricity to come from sustainable sources by then.

Trudeau himself has defended the fundraisers.
During the last federal election, the Liberals promised more free votes in the House so MPs could more effectively represent their constituents. The TPP is an issue that demands our representation. It will affect every Canadian, but will have specific and diverse impacts on different parts of the country.
