It was a good cabein shuffle. But Trudeau’s essential problem remains. Because his government is now a 'movement,' Justin Trudeau is the one and only face we associate with it. He is his movement’s brand.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
He has dominated the politics of this era like no other, standing bestride it like a Cheeto-coloured colossus.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
For Justin Trudeau, the polls are not necessarily pointing towards oblivion. But some sort of a defeat, increasingly, looks possible.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Conservative partisans weren’t so interested in what she wanted. They hate the Liberal leader, and they wanted Justin Trudeau to suffer the same fate as Kent Hehr, or worse.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Justin Trudeau, as he ponders the darkening horizon at Harrington Lake, should heed the advice of no less than Johnny Rotten. Anger works. Anger is energy.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella

Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
She also lost because her war room was a joke, 'the surrender room,' as someone said.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
And, already, some of us are starting to hear some of the excuses being road-tested by Kathleen Wynne’s campaign wizards. Because they know they are going to lose.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella

Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
The guy in Toronto, who was apparently following the same women-hating manifesto, didn’t kill himself. As the entire world saw, he wanted a Toronto cop to do that for him. The cop—amazingly, bravely—refused, and arrested the alleged mass-murderer without firing a shot.

Last week, Christopher Wylie told British Parliamentarians that AggregateIQ was up to no good, too.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
No one in Liberaldom wants to admit to knowing Christopher Wylie these days, of course, because they correctly sense that a genuine scandal is in the offing.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Political parties need to get voters' attention. You don't do that by throwing statistics at voters. You do that by having a narrative, a story. And Kathleen Wynne doesn't have one right now.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Can Doug Ford win? Damn right he can. Underestimate him at your peril.
Opinion|By Warren Kinsella
Canadians haven't been this embarrassed since Joe Clark famously lost his luggage and walked into a bayonet.
