U.S. President Joe Biden is hosting a pivotal climate summit this month. Three decades of climate change denial and procrastination—led by America in particular—have left humanity on the brink, writes Bill Henderson. Photograph courtesy of Flickr
But with unsettling evidence now leaking into the public domain, CSC is doubling down on its efforts to control public perceptions and the fifth estate, disparaging any reporting not grounded in CSC's own propaganda.
The new industrial policy going forward should be focused on creating technology advantages, building pools of incredibly talented scientists, technicians and workers, and setting up regulatory regimes.
Our collective success will depend on having partners across every sector, in every jurisdiction, working hand-in-glove, as we continue to leverage resources and expertise to create improved mental health outcomes.
Take heed, political party leaders. Indigenous peoples, Black Canadians, and people of colour are now more than 26 per cent of Canada’s population. We will not be dismissed any longer. We demand to be safe in this country.
It would be dangerous for Liberals to skew their campaign to millennial voters. That cohort was a winner in 2015, delivering a solid majority to the Liberals. But it is not likely to be as effective this time around.
Once again, the Trudeau government’s larger, loftier climate ambitions seem to vanish every time a pipeline company, or a western premier, declares that the sky is falling. It never falls, although it changes, as oil falls into public disfavour.
The global agency, once noted for its dogmatic—and at times destructive, unbridled free-market ideology, is now an advocate of more active government and is making clear the connections between social policy, economic policy, and environmental policy for our post-pandemic world.
There is no good reason for the Liberal government and this Parliament not to adopt the measures of this bill now, level the playing field and get on with replacing the million jobs we have lost in the pandemic.
We hope countries like Canada will leverage their international positions and their domestic political consensuses to take urgent and co-ordinated action to help secure Taiwan’s spot at the international table.
It is not surprising that 80 per cent of Canadians think that Canada is not prepared to handle a nuclear weapons emergency and that these weapons, now numbering more than 13,000 in the world, should be eliminated.
The government’s lack of measurable progress on anti-Black racism results from fighting inequality symptoms rather than the disease—a comprehensive apology for years of pain and suffering through enslavement.
In the near future, voters’ score sheets are likely to be mainly shaped by their reading of their leaders’ responses to the pandemic. It’s impossible to say how the Liberals will fare once the verdict arrives.
The CBC never understood that the uniqueness of RCI is that we explain Canada to the rest of the world. And at a time when Canada needs to be understood, RCI should be expanded and be ready for the future.
In the face of renewed U.S. climate ambition, Canada needs to step up its game. This is our opportunity to get to a clean electricity grid by introducing a standard. Otherwise, we risk being left behind.
If the opposition parties support a non-confidence motion in the current government, over maybe a budget or something, and let’s say the chief electoral officer tells Parliament that a federal election cannot be safely held, then, assuming we find one quickly, the governor general will really have only one option: welcome to the party, Prime Minister Erin O’Toole.
