      Here are all of Justin Trudeau’s promises in federal election 2019

      Justin Trudeau’s Liberals won re-election on Oct. 21. The party made dozens of promises during the 40-day campaign, and unlike the last four years, they don’t hold the majority of seats in the House of Commons. Now that Trudeau’s team has to win the support of at least one opposition party whenever they want to pass legislation,...

      What will happen if Trump is convicted in an impeachment proceeding

      There is no precedent for kicking a U.S. president out of the Oval Office. If Donald Trump is indeed impeached by the House of Representatives, convicted by the Senate and subsequently removed from office, there is a best-case scenario for the peaceful transition of power. “He graciously accepts it, invites the vice-president over to take the...

      Trump’s betrayal of the Kurds spurs the drumbeat to end his presidency

      The maelstrom began with a shocking Sunday night communique from the White House: President Donald Trump had given Turkish strongman Recep Tayyip Erdoğan a green light to launch a massive invasion of the Kurdish-held territories of northern Syria. U.S. special forces were ordered to pull back from the Turkish-Syrian border and let it happen....

      And how is Trump after an insane, surreal week? Couldn’t be better.

      And how is Trump after an insane, surreal week? Couldn’t be better.

      A lusty chant of “Four more years!” rattled the White House windows from the inside on Friday, but this was not the president of the United States thundering to an audience of one in the Clintons’ old shower. A chorale of ecstatic voices shouted “We love you!” to the beleaguered chief executive, but they came not from the throats of Donald...

      The kitchen’s on fire, and Scheer won’t grab the fire extinguisher

      The Conservative Party of Canada has painted itself into a corner on the issue of climate change. Were the issue not quite so pressing, and the injury not so entirely self-inflicted, one could almost feel sorry for the party. Here they are, hoping to form the government in a country where the majority of people recognize climate change as the...

      This is Russia’s man in St. John’s

      It’s no small feat for John Stuart Durrant, a Canadian living in St. John’s, to be declared a friend of Russia by none other than President Vladimir Putin. After all, Canada’s foreign minister, a staunch ally of Ukraine, is banned from visiting Canada’s erstwhile Cold War foe. But Durrant is no Chrystia Freeland. As...

      Donald Trump made an offer that Ukraine couldn’t refuse

      This week, a lot of people have been comparing President Donald Trump’s just-revealed behaviour to that of a cliché movie mobster shaking down a shopkeeper. On Wednesday morning, the White House released a memorandum recounting the president’s July 25 call with Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky. That’s the call behind...

      Donald Trump’s year of ‘presidential harassment’

      President Trump has had many catchphrases throughout his career as a real estate mogul, reality show star and president of the United States of America. Though not as prolific as ‘You’re fired!’ or ‘Fake News!’, a phrase he has turned to multiple times as things started to become rockier in the White House is ‘presidential...

      When it comes to friends, Donald Trump needs only the bare minimum

      Donald Trump needs only 34 friends to save his tangerine neck but his lifeboat is getting leaky. “Cracks emerge among Senate Republicans,” the Washington Post assures its Trump-hating owner and subscribers. “I would not be happy,” a member of the Grand Old Party from Wisconsin says of the latest furor, if in fact the furor is true. Mitt Romney,...

      It’s almost like Donald Trump wants to be impeached

      Less than a day after the leadership of the Democratic Party agreed to proceed full-throttle to throttle Donald Trump, the novice Ukrainian leader and former stage comedian who inadvertently may have caused the downfall of an American president already had gained a new nickname across the former Soviet Union: “Monica Zelensky.” In Washington,...
