There will be a reckoning for Trudeau’s Liberals when summer vacation is over: Harper Canadian voters have given this government a long leash, but they may not be enamoured at what they see when they return in the fall.

With the Senate embroiled in a constitutional debate over a Liberal budget bill this week, it is Trudeau's saving grace that summer is approaching and C

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

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

Kelly McParland: Desperate Wynne deploys her top bureaucrats to take on housing Kelly McParland I’ve been studying Ontario’s new Fair Housing Plan for several days now in an effort to discern the logic of the 16-point program that aims to bring housing costs under control. The idea itself seems both attractive yet fanciful: I’m not sure any government anywhere has ever been able to “control” prices or make housing “fair.” Cities that have existed centuri

Sunny ways turn to secrecy and control Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. (Dave Abel/Toronto Sun) Justin Trudeau gave voters the impression he was turning a page on what he portrayed as the dark and secretive ways of the former Conservative government. Sunny ways was all the rage. But Prime Minister Trudeau has not delivered. Recent reports reveal he’s treating Parliament as nothing more than a tool to ram through his agenda, opposition support be damn

Wynne's shell game not fooling Ontarians Not everybody is an April Fool. For example the whole lets put Ontario’s excessive Hydro bills on another credit card at a higher interest rate thing didn’t work for Premier Kathleen Wynne and didn’t fool the public. The next batch of opinion polls following that kicking the Hydro can down the road for our kids to pay for showed her at 12% approval and at risk of winning just seven seats in next year’s elec
