Opinion|By Sheila Copps
Courageous, when she told the country successive governments had neglected their responsibilities by not investing in pandemic preparation; dangerous because Canadians will blame current governments when things go wrong.
Opinion|By Sheila Copps
As long as Donald Trump is in office, he will continue to promote despots and dictators over democrats. He would rather befriend Russian president Vladimir Putin and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
Opinion|By Sheila Copps
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is getting an early shot at the new form of communication. Self-isolation has not prevented him from getting his message out.
Opinion|By Sheila Copps
Canadian Bruce Aylward is leading the World Health Organization team charged with stemming the spread of the virus. He warns us that this is not the common flu and is 10 times more deadly than that.
Opinion|By Sheila Copps
The fight for the Democratic soul reposes in two distinct groups, the young and the old.
Opinion|By Sheila Copps
Ongoing railway blockades do erode some support but once ended, Canadians want to move beyond the reality of cultural annihilation and colonial domination. Reconciliation involves healing the wounds of history.
Opinion|By Sheila Copps
It is one thing for the hereditary chiefs to demand reconciliation from the rest of us. But they need to show their good faith as well.
Opinion|By Sheila Copps
Courts have been very clear. Governments have a duty to consult Indigenous people before green-lighting major construction projects. But duty to consult should not be confused with veto power.

Canadians trapped in the epicentre of the coronavirus in China had to wait in line behind the U.S., Japan, South Korea, Jordan, Britain, Portugal, Bangladesh, Egypt, Thailand, and Indonesia.
Opinion|By Sheila Copps

It is not good news for the minority Liberal government.

The American political system is so broken that intelligent citizens are already turning a deaf ear to testimony they do not want to hear.
Opinion|By Sheila Copps
Andrew Scheer has more than a communications problem. He has a substance problem and so does his party. The April reckoning in Toronto will bring it to a head.
Opinion|By Sheila Copps
Progressives have largely fled the party and Peter MacKay is stuck with trying to convince current Conservatives that the party needs to veer to the left.
Opinion|By Sheila Copps
Like everyone, I am anxiously awaiting the Monday's election outcome. And on Monday evening, I am taking a break from that vicious medium, Twitter.
