“I’d heard stories about this lady...” Is Maggie Trudeau the “Madame X” in Trump’s book? https://youtu.be/WfZLPXvI7xE So I was reading this book: Trump: Surviving at the Top. It was the sequel to Trump’s first best-seller, The Art of the Deal, which he wrote 30 years ago. In the later book, Trump wrote about his personal life, in the mid 1970s. He wrote a bit about Montreal, and how he met his first wife, Ivana Trump there. And he des
Enough with the Liberal hypocrisy Premier Kathleen Wynne’s government requires all investment advisers across Ontario to account for every single dollar they make for managing their clients’ money. The rationale is that customers should know how much they are paying their advisers. So why doesn’t Wynne apply that same rationale to her own policies? Let’s look at two examples of Liberal hypocrisy: Hydro rates and the new cap-and-trade scheme.
Trudeau reveals second trip to Aga Khan’s island The admission of an earlier trip in 2014 means Trudeau may have breached the conflict of interest code for MPs while in opposition.

Justin Trudeau mocked for baffling immigration remark In Dartmouth, N.S., Monday, Justin Trudeau said that because his maternal grandfather was born in Scotland, he understands the immigrant experience. In Kingston, Ont., last week, Trudeau was asked what to do if he got a spot on his tie — and he had a handy tip. And, of course, in Peterborough, Ont., he forced his aides into some damage control when he blurted out that the oilsands ought to be
Public sector has become an unsustainable monster When are our federal, provincial and municipal politicians going to acknowledge they’ve created a public-sector monster the private sector can’t afford? A new study by the Fraser Institute reveals what a monster it’s become. It says that in 2015, the last year for which statistics are available, the public sector workforce in Ontario, at 1.3 million employees, accounted for almost one in five wor
Trudeau has a spending problem: Ambrose Stephen Harper left Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a surplus, the best job creation record in the G7, and the lowest level of taxation that Canadians have seen in over 50 years. Now, those Canadians who turn 18 years old today won’t see another balanced budget in Ottawa until they turn 56. This is Trudeau’s legacy. What a difference a year makes. Spending is out of control in Ottawa. “Modest” $10-billion
