COPPS' CORNER
We now know, in excruciating detail, why two people died in Algo Centre Mall

For lasting change, we need to understand, in equal detail, why communities across Canada are dying.


  
Conservatives to use every tool to pave way for more negative advertising

  
CRTC rethinking Canadian content platforms

Google can choose to ignore that conversation, but, as they say in French, ‘Les absents ont toujours tort.’


  
Multiple reasons for Grit success

Liberals have once again beaten the odds, and, in so doing, mystified the pollsters.


  
In the end, belonging’s an affair of the heart

But the rapid trajectory of the ‘yes’ movement in Scotland was enough to breathe new life into separatist movements everywhere.


  
Decision to put an end to a country gut-wrenching, irreversible

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has wisely weighed in on the looming Scottish referendum. Canada is in a unique position to speak about referenda. We know from whence we speak.


  
Much of Parliament’s work today designed to widen gaps between regions, peoples

  
Premiers’ lead may leave Harper isolated on missing and murdered aboriginal women

  
Ontario needs a wake-up call to fix municipal conflict of interest rules

  
Pure politics could get in the way of Canada Post’s cost cutting

  
Redford’s caucus cockup shouldn’t be a criminal investigation

To this day, I have not heard a logical explanation of why a spouse’s presence is bona fide but a minor child’s is not.


  
Smile, stand up for women

If ever you think the battle for equality is over, just look at what is happening around the world.


  
Conservative team in full election mode: Sheila Copps

  
Duffy will finally get his day in court

Sen. Mike Duffy and his lawyer have made it clear they won’t go down without a fight.


  
Is Canada in danger of becoming a banana republic?

  
Ford discredits the whole political class

There are just so many unanswered questions surrounding the return of Rob Ford that no feckless, feigned apology is going to make it right.


  
At least MacKay is an honest sexist: Copps

Justice Minister Peter MacKay was right. More Canadian women are involved in child rearing, house cleaning, and food preparation than their male counterparts. So why are we shooting the messenger without actually doing anything about it.


  
Sheila Copps: the next election’s question is shaping up

  
NDP executes next best strategy, a frontal attack on Commons Board of Internal Economy: Copps

For Tom Mulcair, who loves to trumpet his party’s squeaky-clean image, his spending scandal may be more than pricey. But he is banking that a future day in court will lower the cost.


  
If Wynne does win, she needs to stop apologizing
