If there was ever a more confusing and chaotic rollout of government policy, it is hard to think of what that might be. The GST? The NEP? The Bay of Pigs?
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Stephen Harper is a traditional conservative, standing on a shrinking patch of political real estate, and he’s responding to the crisis like traditional conservatives too often do: by suggesting that the likes of Trump can somehow be accommodated.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
At his first press conference after the election, François Legault dispensed with any notion that he would be the premier of all Québécois.

It's not just in the United States, and not just here and there in Europe. It's here.

Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
The midterm elections will be a reckoning for U.S. President Donald Trump's Republican Party, writes Warren Kinsella.
