Is Hillary right? Do progressives need to back away from some principles?

Opinion|By Andrew Cardozo
Hillary Clinton offers an important, even if controversial warning that it is time to slow down and take stock of the progressive agenda. Time to be more strategic.

Canada and the Commonwealth didn’t end apartheid, but they certainly played a major role in world sanctions and the condemnation of it, writes Andrew Cardozo.

•Critics of the Liberal government's national strategy to combat racism should also understand the context. •In the Canadian quest for harmony, here are a few milestones and policies to keep in mind: we've had an official bilingual policy since 1969 (Trudeau), a multiculturalism policy since 1971 (Trudeau) and a Multiculturalism Act since 1988 (Mulroney). A Charter of Rights and Freedoms since 1983 (Trudeau), a Canadian Race Relations Foundation since 1988 (Mulroney). We welcomed Vietnamese boat people in 1979-80 (Clark), recognized the Quebecois as a nation in 2006 (Harper) and issued an apology for residential schools in 2008 (Harper). And then we have the Indian Act which pre-dates Confederation and is still in effect today. These are just a few, and none happened without their supporters and their critics.

So a feminist budget is about women and may appeal politically more to women and girls, but make no mistake, men and boys benefit too.
Opinion|By Andrew Cardozo
Work at the minimum wage and the low end of spectrum is becoming more precarious. The developing precariat, the modern day proletariat, are not just our kids in university, they are our neighbours, our siblings, our spouses—they are us.
Opinion|By Andrew Cardozo
In a world where the nature of war is changing so much, with clearly identified state actors to a variety of non-state antagonists, the nature of peacekeeping is becoming a lot more difficult.

Opinion|By Andrew Cardozo
Conservative MPs continued to push back zeroing in on their concern with naming Islamophobia, a canard if there ever was one.
Opinion|By Andrew Cardozo
We need to welcome the debate and not hurl insults at those we disagree with. This is an opportunity to understand discrimination present and past. Second, as we become a more egalitarian and diverse society, the dominant group and culture cannot have the only say or the final say on who and what is important.
Opinion|By Andrew Cardozo
The list demonstrates that we are well past the stage of token or unqualified Indigenous appointments.
Opinion|By Andrew Cardozo
Justin Trudeau now knows who his major competitor will be: Andrew Scheer, the new leader of the Conservative Party, a party that has recently been within striking distance of the Liberals in public opinion polls even without a permanent leader. And has been well ahead in fundraising of late. 
Opinion|By Andrew Cardozo
Even though Canada has had several female premiers, and one female prime minister, none have been elected twice.
Opinion|By Andrew Cardozo
Kellie Leitch has a point about building a cohesive society, but how do you test immigrants for values?
Opinion|By Andrew Cardozo
One of the bravest parts of the budget was its naming of priority sectors. The six broad innovative sectors are: advanced manufacturing, agri-food, clean technology, digital industries, health/bio-sciences, and clean resources.
Opinion|By Andrew Cardozo

Suddenly being like Trump may not be such a good thing, and will be a less good thing going forward.
Opinion|By Andrew Cardozo
No government wants to hear that its public broadcaster wants hundreds of millions of dollars more in subsidies in the same week a political opponent has called for the abolition of the said corporation.
Opinion|By Andrew Cardozo
The newsworthy story is that Canadians believe immigrants should integrate, two to one, and that they generally like the way they are integrating, two to one.
Opinion|By Andrew Cardozo
The thing about the uniquely 'Canadian values' of equality and respect is that they are fairly clear, only fairly. Some are legislated, some are not. And it is that complex and careful balancing over time—with lots of variation and nuance—that allows for a free and peaceful society.
Opinion|By Andrew Cardozo
The Liberal government of Justin Trudeau is really the first government in our history that wants to do this right, that accepts that we need to hear, and listen, and acknowledge and feel the reality of the past.
U.S. President Barack Obama asserted that North America is 'a global hub of innovation.' Now we have to make that happen.
Opinion|By Andrew Cardozo
The new guy has left the trash-talking, prize fighters in the dust. He stuck to the high road and now he’s the only one standing. Why? Because he read Canadians a lot better than his experienced opponents.
Opinion|By Andrew Cardozo
This human rights scholar and advocate of international note is both dedicated to a slate of human rights issues and is in high demand to speak and lecture all over the world.
Opinion|By Andrew Cardozo
The Liberals also face strong opposition parties and some formidable MPs. After all, when the Liberal wave swept across the country in last fall's election, the stronger ones survived in the opposition benches. This is one of the strongest Parliaments ever.
