Canada’s energy regulator completely broken

  
Business case for a national dementia strategy compelling

We must tackle dementia collectively and deliberately. Our economic prosperity depends on it just as much as those we hold dear to us.


  
Developing strategies for change

It is time to look beyond surface characteristics to the talent beneath, in order to marshal the skills of all lawyers and paralegals, at all levels, and to promote a profession that is representative of the community it serves.


  
Will Obama and Harper get us all killed?

U.S., Britain, NATO, and the Harper government continue to up the ante in the confrontation with Russia over the Ukraine.


  
Conservative fear campaign: murderers and terrorists in our streets

The more threats the Conservatives can identify, the better their political odds, because they own the ‘scared voter.’


  
How multiculturalism can make Canada stronger this century

Multiculturalism was one of our country’s social revolutions of the 20th century. In the 21st century—a century in which American global leadership may be lacking—Canada needs a socio-strategic revolution. We need to find a way to unite those communities in Canada that would normally be divided by an overseas protracted social conflict behind a shared foreign policy approach.


  
Chong does his bit for democratic reform, who’s next?

So there has been some small progress to curb a leader’s power but none, sadly, to curb the power of central party backrooms. Michael Chong had to completely remove all of those initiatives.


  
Doubling contributions to tax-free savings account: even nastier than income splitting

The TFSA carries far higher risks than rewards—for individual Canadians, as well as for the economy as a whole.


  
How can a $16-million to $30-million gift of public land be justified?

Ottawa architect Barry Padolsky writes an open letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper.


  
Secret memo reveals RCMP records on requests for subscriber data ‘inaccurate, incomplete’

The shortcomings in both practice and oversight point to the need for a strong legislative and policy response.


  
Feds’ fiscal policy has depressed potential economic growth

But the Harper government likes to claim it has exercised strong leadership in managing the economy.


  
Trudeau’s inevitability slipped 15 points, and that’s a lot

  
Manning Conference about remembering how we got here and best path forward into future

  
Manning Centre Networking Conference is the Coachella for conservatives

Imitation is surely the highest form of flattery, even in politics. I am pleased liberals and socialists have found homes in the Broadbent Centre and in Canada 2020. Public policy improves when we are able to debate difficult subjects freely.


  
'New Deal' needed for young Canadians facing variety of economic pressures

Senate Liberals host panel discussion at Open Caucus.


  
Research at Canada’s colleges a boon for business and social innovation

Given the strong presence of colleges across Canada, and the breadth of college expertise in these disciplines, their work will offer significant benefit to faculty, to students, and to local businesses and communities throughout the country and well into the future.


  
Four things needed to make pharmacare work for Canadians

  
Non-cooperation threatens productive fishery

It is time for the Government of Canada to partner with the American and Nova Scotia governments in passing legislation to extend the Canadian moratorium through 2022. To do otherwise will endanger the spirit of cooperation that has developed between the United States and Canada in the management of this rich and sensitive marine area.


  
Exposing the new feudalism

The moral and ethical rot at the core of these stories can be characterized quite nicely by the word pimping—HSBC for the rich and drug lords, Strauss Kahn for other members of the political and economic elite, and Williams and his ilk for well-paid complicity in the worst excesses of U.S. (and Canadian) militarism.


  
Five big ideas for Canada, on stage this week in Ottawa

Five of Canada’s boldest visionaries speak about the one great idea they have for our country.
