Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Ottawa, stop embracing the past. Stop celebrating fluff. Consider the possibilities of 2019 and beyond.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
When faith in our judicial system is lost—and when the reputation of those who preside over it is similarly gone—we start to become much less of a democracy.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
In our constitutional rights document, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, there are all manner of protections. But nothing—nothing—about the environment.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Why do we political types love them so? Because, as King, and Dief, and others knew too well, politics is a business you do not enter to make friends. It is nasty, brutish, and usually shorter than expected. But at the end of a long day of treachery and back-stabbing, nothing repairs the political heart better than those brown eyes, and that wet nose, asking for nothing but love.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sure has to sharpen up his communications skills and not be a hypocrite.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Justin Trudeau should have said there was no state-sanctioned genocide. He should have said Canada has been negligent, and wrong, and to blame.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
The respected Green Party leader has the credibility, the longevity, and the right policies at the right time to pick up disaffected voters turning away from other parties.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
'The actions of the prime minister and the government have been of great concern—to say the least—for Indigenous peoples,' says the former justice minister.

Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Justin Trudeau is quite fond of apologies when he is not the wrongdoer. 
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Mark Norman's high-profile lawyer Marie Henien used last week's press conference to take a shot at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. 'Fortunately, Vice-Admiral Norman didn’t fire the females he hired,' she said.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Or, in this case, the chopping block. Jeremy Broadhurst's dedication to the Liberal cause is so complete, one is moved to wonder if he has the party logo tattooed on one of his body parts.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
He is unlikely to acquire a new one in the dwindling number of weeks that remain between now and the election.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Justin Trudeau may not have been on the ballot in Alberta, but he surely helped determine the result, more than any other Canadian politician. He helped elect Jason Kenney and defeat Rachel Notley.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Justin Trudeau’s libel lawsuit against Andrew Scheer is in no way defensible.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Gerry Butts' notes on the conversation between Jody Wilson-Raybould and Justin Trudeau may not help the government much, but they will help Marie Henein.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
An Angus Reid poll, released March 28, suggested he now may be as many as ten percentage points behind Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives nationally.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Jane Philpott's candid interview, and a near loss of a confidence vote, put the government's shortcomings squarely back in the spotlight.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
The dirt Francis Drouin and his pals shovelled onto democracy last week isn’t right, at all. And we won’t forget it.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
LavScam is a raging five-alarm fire; Justin Trudeau brought a squirt gun to the blaze. He did and said nothing that will extinguish Canadians’ growing belief that Trudeau and his staff may have obstructed justice.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Jody Wilson-Raybould was ready. Over four historic hours, in a room that was as still and as quiet as a church, Wilson-Raybould gave everyone a lesson in the law.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
The three pillars of Justin Trudeau’s government—reconciliation with Indigenous people, equal treatment of women, ethics and accountability in government—have all collapsed.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
In his words, actions, and associations, the People's Party leader has shown what he thinks of people who don't look like him.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
But should they all stop using social media, given how completely, and how regularly, it proves how unworthy they are? No. We should be grateful to social media.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
The editor and publisher of Your Ward News were finally convicted of promoting hate against women, after years of harassing members of the public with their odious views.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
At least with Stephen Harper, he was always truthful about his disinterest in their issues. Justin Trudeau, they say, cheerily says one thing to them, and then does another.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Justin Trudeau’s nearly four years in power will be remembered for Chewbacca socks, baby-balancing, and the Griswolds go to India, writes Warren Kinsella.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Some are found in both categories, so pay attention, Virginia.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Could Justin Trudeau lose? Because, increasingly, some smart politicos, including ones of the Liberal persuasion, are saying it’s possible. Likely, even.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Justin Trudeau so far has a mixed track record on byelection wins, which is not necessarily all bad, but not all good either.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Jagmeet Singh can turn things around if he brings back strategists who know strategy, runs in the Brampton byelection and starts crafting policies that are both progressive and popular.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
The Trudeau Party is covertly grateful for Doug Ford: he is, and will be, useful in Liberal fundraising, recruitment and electioneering. And Trudeau’s disdain for Ford is deep, and longstanding.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Andrew Scheer needs to do what I have long suspected he's going to do anyway—embrace his inner nerd.
