    A budget Trump could live with

    It is, for better or worse, a document Donald Trump can live with. For make no mistake, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government has penned the 2017 federal budget as if America were breathing over its shoulder. There are, for instance, very few huge-ticket spending items (those who do win big, such as the Canada Revenue Agency, are...

    We’re losing ideas war to the Russians

    Canadians to whom all this talk in America and Europe about Russian-inspired fake news seems a rather paranoid fantasy that has nothing to do with us are about to get a rude awakening. We are preparing to send Canadian troops to Latvia as part of a NATO tripwire mission to warn off the Kremlin from expanding its destabilizing efforts from Ukraine...

    From Stephen Hough to Sgt. Pepper to the Syrian Experience, Chamberfest 2017 offers an eclectic lineup

    Chamberfest 2017 is mindful of where it falls during Ottawa’s summer of wall-to-wall festivals and celebrations during Canada’s sesquicentennial, and is programming accordingly, says its artistic director, Roman Borys. “We really know that people are going to have a lot of options this summer, throughout the summer,” Borys says....

    Don’t use a zero as Senators’ logo

    Let’s not opt for an ‘O’ Re: New Look Possible For Sens, March 6. I was rather disturbed to read that Senators’ management is considering adopting the stylized “O” as the team’s primary logo. As a longtime Senators fan, I like the Roman soldier logo (even if it’s not a senator). However, my main reason for writing is...

    Russian revolution’s lessons for today

    One hundred years ago this week, a protest about food shortages in the Russian capital, Petrograd, turned into the violent revolution that overthrew Czar Nicholas II and brought the Romanov dynasty to an end. The liberal-minded provisional government that assumed power did not last long, succumbing to another revolution eight months later, which...

    Freeland has nothing to be ashamed of

    I’ve heard it all before. It was fake news then and still is. Allegations about “Nazis in Canada” – the most recent regurgitation targeting Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland – have circulated for decades. Understandably, just after the war’s end, Jewish Canadians were alarmed at the prospect of “Ukrainian Nazis” escaping...

    Chrystia Freeland’s granddad was indeed a Nazi collaborator – so much for Russian disinformation

    The news conference on Monday by Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland was interesting not for the announcement that Canada was extending its training mission to Ukraine but for the questions and answers about the minister’s grandfather. There have been a number of articles circulating about Freeland’s Ukrainian grandfather...

    How Russia smears Chrystia Freeland

    It’s such a juicy story, isn’t it? Chrystia Freeland, Canada’s ambitious foreign affairs minister, is secretly itching to draw Canada into a showdown with Russia because of the seething hatreds she inherited from her Ukrainian grandfather, a Nazi collaborator and war profiteer she never told us about. She’s been lying...
