There is no question there is now, and has been, disparity and adversity in our society: but it is a test of our character as to how we respond.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
In the present day, there are modifications possible within the ‘colonial’ framework. But you don't burn down the village to save it. And binary descriptions don’t help the cause of reconciliation.

We have to ensure foreign policy is focused on finding common ground and interests to keep diplomacy alive. That requires experienced diplomats, strong alliances, and memberships in many organizations.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
If there is a reckoning for this increasing cycle of disparity, it will not be pretty. Instead of awaiting economic catastrophe or class war, governments in the West should collaborate.
In a world of increasing complexity, effective reporting is needed more than ever. The downing of the Ukrainian Airlines jet in Iran last week is a case in point.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
At the start of the millennium, I believed the next decades would herald the beginnings of greater global co-operation, a truly united Europe, and more post-national countries. Instead, we have seen an emerging backlash.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
The recent commemorations are a reminder that in this still-dangerous world, there are Canadian soldiers, development workers, and diplomats working for us abroad for whom the season may be anything but peaceful.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
The North used to be seen as a government priority, especially for its economic potential in natural resources and its critical role in territorial sovereignty, but it wasn't even an afterthought this election.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Much like the 'dot-com' bubble that burst in 2000, when analysts ignored the cash flow of the early internet businesses, companies like Uber, Airbnb, and even Amazon are vulnerable. And we in Canada will not be immune.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Spare a moment for the average 13-year-old Canadian. Are they a child or a youth, and thus under the aegis of Bardish Chagger, or that of Ahmed Hussen?
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Everyone needs to fight back, by calling out racism and supporting racialized candidates for jobs, political office, and opportunities, or we’ll undermine the foundations of the Canada we're striving to build.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
I am not sure if Premier Legault knows how bad a week he had, but if he and his ministers keep this up, eventually they will be a laughingstock in the international media.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
An estimated 68,000 Canadians died on the battlefields of the First World War and are among those who will be commemorated this Remembrance Day.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Whatever the outcome of this Parliament, those in power should be reminded the national interest, not their political survival, should be their priority.
There was plenty of failure to go around, as 42 days ago, there were certain presumptions. This was by far the most confusing and disillusioning election of them all.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
In spite of the media focus on the leaders’ campaigns, we do not have a presidential system in this country. We elect a cabinet, not a king.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
There is much to be done to show respect for francophones outside Quebec, in the same way the Quebec government should respect its anglophone citizens and visitors.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
As Canada contributes 1.5 per cent of global greenhouse gases, our efforts alone can't tip the global needle. But we can become innovators and exporters of ideas, goods, and services to make a difference.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
If there is one lesson I learned from this reunion, it is to say to students today: don’t give up.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
One hopes this Trudeau will do on Quebec's Bill 21 as his father did on Bill 101: listen to wise counsel and wait as this issue plays itself out.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Having a big-name ally in China should open doors for Canada. We can presume Dominic Barton has the intelligence and the wisdom to ensure Canada’s interests are well served.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Kamouraska, Que. will soon be commemorating the 1759 burning of thousands of homes and barns by British General James Wolfe. But should it?
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
The Liberal and Conservative 2019 campaign slogans are out. There is some underlying mean-spiritedness in both. So let’s parse them a bit.
Like so many issues in modern Canada, what is important in rural communities takes a back seat to the big cities’ priorities.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
‘For quite a while I have been receiving a lot of encouragement from people. The decision to run is the right one; I have something to offer and I want to continue to serve,’ says the former NDP MP.
