John Ivison: With voter support tumbling, a tactical reset is in order for Liberals It seems for a good number of Canadians, the realization has taken hold that this is a PM with no first-hand experience of the lives of the people he champions John Ivison June 21, 2017 8:56 PM EDT OTTAWA — The House of Commons is out for summer and the great chamber will echo the sounds of tour groups, rather than heckling, for the next three months. Most C

Krayden: Trump puts environmental crusaders in their place. The climate change worshippers might have a tricky time now.

Krayden: Trump puts environmental crusaders in their place Poor Justin Trudeau. The prime minister is “disappointed” that President Donald Trump has yanked the United States out of the ridiculous Paris climate accord. Our minister of the environment and “climate change” (yes, that’s her official title) is also disappointed. But Catherine McKenna assured Canadians on Thursday that the U.S. walking out of this environmental boutique won’t stop the deluge

Ottawa pizzeria: Liberals put minimum thought into minimum wage hike There have been many opinions by various economists on the impact of the Liberal government’s plan to raise the minimum wage to $15. I wanted to give the real world perspective of a small, growing business that employs many students at the current minimum wage level. We opened Fiazza Fresh Fired three years ago. When developing the business plan, we, of course, had to estimate expens

Trudeau is the scary one, not Scheer – Trudeau has always been Canada’s greatest enemy, both father and son.

Trudeau is the scary one, not Scheer Andrew Scheer’s leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada wasn’t an hour old before Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberals released their attack dogs on him. Having for months warned Canadians about the dangers of electing the “libertarian” Maxime Bernier, they immediately shifted gears to attacking the “social conservative” Scheer whom, they warned, would deny women abortions and gay couples the right to marry

Ontario energy sector in shambles thanks to McGuinty-Wynne duo For decades to come, former Premier Dalton McGuinty and Premier Kathleen Wynne will be a case study in political science and public administration university courses across Canada — but for the wrong reasons. Both will be studied for how to impoverish a provincial economy by making ideologically-driven electricity policies, devoid of any planning and logic. Ontario used to be the manuf

Trudeau’s carbon plan will fail

Trudeau’s carbon plan will fail
Trudeau’s carbon plan will fail To be credible, a carbon pricing plan intended to reduce industrial greenhouse gas emissions linked to climate change should be national in scope, consistent in application and 100% revenue neutral. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s carbon pricing plan, released last week by Environment Minister Catherine McKenna, is none of these things. It is a political fraud because it will not do the things the Trudeau government

What we still don’t know about the federal carbon-pricing plan – And to move forward with it, when US in not, is just beyond stupidity.

What we still don’t know about the federal carbon-pricing plan Maura Forrest The federal government has unveiled its new carbon pricing plan, and while it’s almost a carbon copy of Alberta’s plan, many questions remain. The federal plan, announced Thursday by Environment Minister Catherine McKenna, is a hybrid system like Alberta’s, which will charge a levy on fuel and create an emissions credit trading system for large industrial polluters. The le

Wynne Liberals can’t be trusted The Liberal government under the leadership of Premier Kathleen Wynne, demonstrably, no longer deserves the public’s trust. (TORONTO SUN/FILES) Premier Kathleen Wynne’s government wants you to believe its horrid treatment of Maureen, a 75-year-old woman who was the victim of a government test program gone awry, is an exception to the rule. A rare case of “human error”, even if government bureaucrats had the gall to sugg

Trudeau’s non-answer answers are not transparency – of course not, telling the truth was never part of his plan.

Trudeau’s non-answer answers are not transparency By now, most Canadians tuned in to federal politics have come to realize they were conned by all the promises of heightened transparency and accountability that were dished out when Justin Trudeau was making his run to be prime minister. His Liberal government is anything but transparent. If Trudeau has mastered anything since assuming the mantle of prime minister, it is the art of giving non-answe
