Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
For any real change to occur, there have to be reasonable amendments that protect speculative discussions and open policy making, but do not permit cover-ups of embarrassing information.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Looking back, as someone who was there and both reported and participated in Quebec politics for decades, it annoys me when journalists who were not there get it wrong about the period.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
It is hard to believe the lived experience of Canadians only 25 years ago has been wiped out like the erasing of a collective memory bank.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Applying the constraints of Bill 101 to federal employees won’t change the status quo, and could prevent English-speaking Quebecers from working or being served in their mother tongue, a right they hold as Canadians. 
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
The adverse attention on prominent women like Payette will do nothing to encourage future female leaders to venture into public life. If so, we will all be the poorer for it.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
While the internet 'gives a voice to the voiceless,' we might all be better off if they stayed mute.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell

Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
The absence of a Grey Cup game for the first time in a century should be worn by the government, and fans could be resentful if teams fold.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
I think some prominent Canadians might take a lesson from those so-called ‘average Canadians’ and recognize no one is better than anyone else.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Although the census is not the 'wedge issue' it was under the Harper government, there is so much more we need to know about our country and ourselves.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
The COVID-19 pandemic has sunk all boats, but when the tide comes back, we are still going to be seized with the challenge of declining productivity in comparison to our international competitors. 
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
It is counterproductive to discriminate against anyone on the basis of racial, religious, or ethnic background, not only because it denies them opportunity, but because it denies Canada their talents.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Although Phoenix has provided me with fodder for several columns, it has been like a nagging toothache for almost four years.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
The reductionist concepts touted by so-called ‘Marxist intellectuals’ may play well in social media or on TV, but have a limited connection to contemporary reality or the great philosophers.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
As someone who knows the rest of Canada well, the Quebec Liberal leader says she would look to be a true ‘collaborator’ with Ottawa, while protecting Quebec’s jurisdiction.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
It would be a welcome change for Canadians to discover their own country and celebrate the sacrifices made to deal with COVID-19.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
If recent events prove anything, it is the need to reverse the escalating use of force as well as the militarization of the police in the suppression of dissent.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Racism can be blatant and obvious, or it can be subtle and insidious; any form is unacceptable. Each of us who believes in genuine social progress has to do everything we can to empower people of colour.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
As it moves aggressively into the South China Sea, prepares to quash democracy in Hong Kong, and cow Taiwan into irrelevance, the continuing occupation of Tibet is a reminder of the hollowness of China’s claims.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been loath to criticize Beijing for its long list of offences because he knows the key to getting a Security Council seat next month depends on Chinese influence.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Given the turbulence in the world over the last four decades, of war, genocide, recession, and now, COVID-19, only the smallest of minds think Quebec and Canada would have been better off with a 'Oui' in 1980.     
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
It is the editorial cartoonist who has the capacity to survey the news, inject an opinion, find humour or pathos in current events, and define a moment in history in a single frame.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
This measure gives more oxygen to the far right, who accuse this government of an authoritarian streak. And, more than likely, it will exacerbate urban-rural cleavages, as hunters wonder if their guns are next.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Any inquiry should recommend better training, better profiling, and modern emergency systems technology everywhere in this country.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
The past six weeks proved how much we had in common as Canadians. We should take that lesson into the future and act boldly, as those who came before us did after the Second World War.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
The first step post-pandemic has to be a meeting of the G-7, the International Monetary Fund, the World Trade Organization, and the World Bank to examine the financial consequences of COVID-19.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
A poisonous cocktail of money and internal and global politics has left the WHO damaged by aligning with Chinese President Xi Jinping’s mendaciousness of the perils and spread of COVID-19.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Marie Curie once said, ‘Nothing in life is to be feared: it is only to be understood.’ In order to protect the most vulnerable, the public needs to know who will get sick.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
What was their secret? I think it was their optimism, their sense of humour, and their willingness to sacrifice—attributes some of us today seem to lack.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
