Mr Trudeau Goes To Washington

Today Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau meets with US President Donald Trump in Washington. While some of Trudeau’s initial shine may be a wee bit smudged after a couple of years in office, a fairly normal occurrence no doubt, I think it fair to say that he enjoys better approval ratings at home than doesContinue reading “Mr Trudeau Goes To Washington”

Canada’s Justin Trudeau Welcomes Refugees: “Diversity Is Our Strength”

Prime Minister Trudeau, Put Your Hands Up and Step Away From Your Castro Statement

Notwithstanding the fact that I am a lifelong Liberal Party of Canada voter, a great admirer of the late Pierre Elliott Trudeau and supporter of current Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the latter’s recent statement regarding the passing of Fidel Castro was just plain wrong.

Will Canada Have Its Own Donald Trump?

There can be no denying the effect of US culture on Canada. Most things trendy manage to find their way north across the border. I don’t just mean the great music and films that can be seen here, but the concept of taking a successful project and duplicating it. If a show with rabid gerbilsContinue reading “Will Canada Have Its Own Donald Trump?”
