Doug Ford's new Ontario plan is an attempt to devise a climate change solution that does not involve the carbon tax Ford campaigned against. To that end, the Progressive Conservative government has borrowed broadly and shamelessly, writes Thomas Walkom. The Hill Times photograph by Andrew Meade

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, pictured May 31 in Ottawa with Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freehand, has dismissed Donald Trump’s demands that Canada and other NATO members spend at least two per cent of their entire economic output on defence—and rightly so. For Canada, that sum amounts to roughly $44-billion—$5-billion more than the federal government spends on medicare each year. The Hill Times photograph by Andrew Meade

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-In, pictured on April 27 in Panmunjeom at their historic meeting. The upcoming June 12 summit in Singapore between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un will be important. No question about that. America is a major force in the region. As well, it and other members of the 1950-53 UN Command (including Canada) are still technically at war with North Korea, writes Thomas Walkom. Photo courtesy of Flickr

Thomas Walkom writes that the real aim of recently passed Bill 62 is to pander to anti-Islamic prejudice by singling out those Muslim women who, for religious reasons, veil their faces. Among other things, the law would prevent women wearing niqabs, pictured, and burkas in Quebec from using public transportation—unless they receive special authorization.
