      The Soros principle: A billionaire’s plan to change the world

      At 84, George Soros, the Hungarian-born billionaire, has certainly made his mark on the business world. He is the man who is said to have battered the Bank of England when he shorted the pound and sparked a currency crisis in the 1990s. But he is more than his investment funds. Soros is also a philanthropist with a huge agenda. Through his Open...

      Heath: Stephen Harper, warmonger

      No one should have been surprised when Stephen Harper announced that the Canadian combat mission against ISIS will be renewed, or perhaps even expanded, next week. After all, the Prime Minister is a warmonger. I don’t mean that in a bad way. I’m just observing a fact. Harper is pro-war. He thinks that war is something worth doing. He...

His Uncle Phil taught him to make and repair cabinets. “I’ve always been a hands-on sort of guy,” says Dr. Lesiuk, who, as one of Ottawa’s top neurosurgeons, now repairs brains. Lesiuk is the director of cerebrovascular...

      DND says plane flew over Canadian frigate; no details on alleged faceoff with Russian warships

      The Defence Department now says there was a low-level flight by a Russian plane over a Canadian frigate in the Black Sea but it can’t provide any details to back up the Conservative government’s contention that Russian warships confronted HMCS Fredericton. NATO officials maintain there was no such confrontation and Russian warships...

      The Conservative government has ratcheted up its war of words over Ukraine, with the parliamentary defence secretary claiming Russian warships confronted a Canadian frigate in the Black Sea.

      Ridings to watch in the 2015 federal election, according to Stephen Harper’s travels
