    Canada’s NDP backs American Empire

    Hélène Laverdière, MP Laurier—Sainte-Marie (NDP) • Photo by Alain Décarie Does the NDP consistently support a foreign policy that benefits ordinary people around the world?

    Smoke over the skies of North America is another climate change warning

    Photo by Jonathan Hayward For nearly two weeks, beginning August 1, the skies over Vancouver were filled with the smoke of forest fires burning in central and northern British Columbia.

    Rolling Stone’s latest cover article on Trudeau is barefaced propaganda

    By now, you’ve probably heard about the saccharine 6,660-word hagiography on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that was just published in Rolling Stone.

    Sunday’s French Election

    Photo by Lorie Shaull The good news this May was that French voters rejected far-right Marine Le Pen by a two-to-one margin in the second round of the Presidential election. “At least the French are not schmucks as the Americans!” were the first words that passed the sweet lips of my Provençal partner Elyane when the radio announced Le...

    Hawks & Doves: mixed signals on military engagement

    Image by Nicolas Raymond All three mainstream political parties see Canada’s security as heavily dependent on a stable and prosperous world order, guided by rules applying equally to all and that respect Canadian sovereignty and territorial integrity. That in turn predisposes Canada to help shape that kind of world. As usual, the devil is...

    Blood in the Water: the Trump Revolution Ends in a Whimper

    Photo by Gage Skidmore The Flynn fiasco is not about national security advisor Michael Flynn’s conversations with the Russian ambassador. It’s much deeper than that. It’s about Russia. It’s about Putin. It’s about the explosive rise of China and the world’s biggest free trade zone that will eventually stretch...
