    It's finally official: Kevin O'Leary will run to become leader of the Conservative Party of Canada. After months of flirting with the idea, he picked the morning after the French leadership debate and used a video on his Facebook page to declare his candidacy. "You know why? I listened to you," he said in the video posted Wednesday, thanking the "40,000" Canadians he said went to his website and encouraged him to enter the race....

Ontario’s hell-bent determination to phase out coal-fired generation raised electricity rates without significantly improving air pollution levels, a new Fraser Institute report says. Report co-author Ross McKitrick, an economics professor at the University of Guelph, said the findings should act as a cautionary tale for Alberta and Ottawa currently going down the same road. Even though there was reliable information available at the time that showed Ontario coal was not a big player in common air pollution...

It is always interesting to see the latest tech that is being offered.  I have found that taking the shuttle bus from the Palazzo is worth while.  Parking is limited at the Boulder Rifle and Pistol Club, which generously allows use of its...

    A Canadian conservative think tank says Jane Fonda’s “an environmental hypocrite” after the left-wing activist and actress protested the Canadian oil sands in northern Alberta. The Manning Centre told The Daily Caller on Sunday that Fonda excoriates the oil sands project because the oil it yields produces greenhouse gasses. But Colin Craig, media manager for the centre, says Fonda has “a carbon footprint the size of a small town,” referring to her jet-setting lifestyle that includes a lot of world travel.

    Local residents expressed their anger Tuesday night at a decision by a school board in a suburb of Toronto, Canada to reverse its policy on monitoring Muslim sermons. Last September, concerned about the potential for radical Islamic propaganda infiltrating religious meetings, the Peel Regional School Board had insisted that students read prayers and sermons from an approved text. The board’s decision to allow students to write their own sermons resulted in angry residents storming a public meeting held to discuss the policy change. Protestors were told to remove their signs because they were deemed anti-Muslim and one woman was taken...

The two sides have met 10 or 12 times since the U.S. election, and as recently as Tuesday -- a five-hour meeting between Trudeau’s chief of staff, Katie Telford, his principal secretary Gerry Butts, White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner. The meetings have been mostly focused on trade, with the intention of convincing the incoming Trump administration that any tariffs on Canadian goods would hurt the U.S. economy. CTV News was...

    An instant industry has developed in Canada about how to adjust to a Trump presidency, as if the nature of the United States has metamorphosed instantly and unrecognizably. Almost all of this concern is unnecessary. Donald Trump has never expressed any grievances against Canada, and his limited experiences here, from skiing in the Laurentians to putting his name on a few buildings for a good fee, (which some local idiots have threatened to take down and have made the subject of demonstrations), have been agreeable. Canada actually runs a modest trade deficit with the United States, and Trump has made...

    Calgary police have charged a pilot after he allegedly passed out from intoxication in the cockpit of a plane with 99 passengers and six crew members. According to police, the pilot boarded a Sunwing Airlines 737-800 series aircraft in Calgary shortly before 7 a.m. on Dec. 31. Crews at the gate and on the plane noticed the pilot was "behaving oddly, before he became unconscious in the cockpit," Staff Sgt. Paul Stacey told reporters at a news conference. The pilot — a 37-year-old foreign national from Slovakia in Canada on a work visa — was taken into custody. High blood...

    For Randy King, the argument for indoor farming in Canada is just common sense. For one, Canada is a northern country with long winters. Two, during those long winters almost all fruit and vegetables in Canadian grocery stores are imported from Central America, Mexico or California. Three, wouldn’t it be better if Canadians grew their own fruits and veggies? “I think this is the way of the future for growing produce in northern regions,” said King, co-owner of West Grow Farms, a company with plans to build an indoor farm near Edmonton. “In order to gain food sovereignty, we need...

Lara Godoff, a 17-year-old from Napa, California, said she scrapped any notion of staying in the U.S. the day after the election. Among other concerns, Godoff, a Democrat, said she fears Trump’s administration will...

But since that fateful day, more than a month ago, Canada’s immigration services department has received only 28 requests for Trump-related refugee status. And none appear to have come from Hollywood, despite the large number of celebs who threatened to cross the northern border is Trump became president. Canadian officials say that there was a “bump” in requests for refugee status following Trump’s election—or, at least, that there seemed to be a bump in November, which...

    In a move that will likely be overturned promptly by the administration of Donald Trump, president Obama on Tuesday formally blocked offshore oil and gas drilling in most of the Atlantic and Arctic Ocean, responding to a call from environmentalists who say the government needs to do more to prevent drilling in environmentally sensitive areas of U.S.-controlled oceans. The president had been expected to take the action by invoking a provision in a 1953 law that governs Outer Continental Shelf offshore leases, and he did just that to block drilling in federal waters in the Arctic's Chukchi Sea and most...

    After long hours of heated discussion, the Canadian government has established the world’s first nationwide carbon price. Only two of Canada’s ten provinces refused to sign the law, arguing that carbon pricing would lead to reduced competition between firms. During Friday’s meeting, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau presented his carbon-pricing plan to provincial representatives, aboriginal leaders, and US Vice President Joe Biden. Trudeau’s decision to price carbon was likely influenced by the fear that Donald Trump’s election will lead to increased carbon emissions by the US. “I understand that many of you are concerned about what the new administration will...

    A teacher at a posh private school in British Columbia was fired last month after making an innocuous comment about abortion to his Grade 12 law class. Though there is no way of knowing, since discipline matters are shrouded in secrecy, it may be the first time a Canadian teacher has been fired not amid allegations of impropriety, but for having the wrong opinion.

    Jawdat Belal palms the steering wheel of a driving school's hybrid car with one hand, turning the vehicle down a residential street in Esquimalt, B.C. Instructor Steve Wallace sits next to him, offering constant directions and corrections. "You've gotta start doing hand-over-hand; you've gotta get rid of [that habit], OK? Right turn here. Signal right," he says. "You can't be doing that ... they'll flunk you," says Wallace with a laugh. "That's your father. Your father's letting you get away with that."

    Here's why rural Ontario is fading and cities aren't The urban-rural divide is swiftly becoming one of the most pressing issues of economic policy in this century. From Europe to England to the United States and yes, here in Canada, the sweeping changes to physical landscapes have translated to sweeping changes in political landscapes. As David Reevely pointed out last week, Ontario’s urban centres have seen economic growth and recovery that the stretches of rural land separating those centres simply haven’t. There are multiple reasons for this, one being that Ontario’s municipalities have been practising a policy of intensification for...

    The CBC owes an apology to Canadians for the video but that is about as likely as Obama expressing condolences over the death of an on-duty police officer. It ain’t going to happen It is the kind of video you expect someone to make and upload to YouTube. It is something completely different when a major broadcaster airs it. And it is more disgusting when the video is made and aired by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation that is subsidized by the taxpayers to the tune of over $1 billion a year. The video on the November 29th episode of This...

    Once it became clear Donald Trump would become the next president of the United States, enquiries about studying at the University of Alberta began to come in. It wasn’t a deluge of interest, says Britta Baron, associate vice-president international, but it was enough that people noticed. And it wasn’t just prospective students putting the feelers out; Deans were also getting queries from academics and professors looking for job opportunities north of the 49th Parallel. The climate of uncertainty swirling through the United States may not be enough to force American students to reconsider their Ivy-league aspirations, but it will, Baron...

    Here we go again: more ways to violate human rights, and the rights of women, proclaimed brazenly in a society that professes to uphold human rights. But Canada recently passed an anti-Islamophobia motion in parliament — whatever that means. "Book sold in Toronto explains the wisdom of stoning adulterers to death”, by Jonathan Halevi, CIJ News, November 28, 2016: The book “How to Protect Yourself from the Fitnah of the Women” by Shaykh Majdi Ibn Atiyah Mahmood, deals with the challenges men are facing when interacting with women, including sexual provocation, sins, immorality, indecency, slackness and vileness. The first chapter...

    Early on Tuesday afternoon, the Prime Minister’s Office announced in a news release that U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden will visit Ottawa during Justin Trudeau’s meeting with the premiers—and the Canadians will throw a dinner in the veep’s honour. This was a quaint reminder of how foreign dignitary visits traditionally get announced and arranged. It came a few hours after a reminder of how deals and diplomacy will get done in Trumpworld—with all the pomp and circumstance of a couple of phone calls and back-slaps.

    Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) slammed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday for his praise of former Cuban leader Fidel Castro. Trudeau caught flak on social media after expressing "deep sorrow" for Castro, whom he called a "remarkable leader." Cruz and Rubio, who are of Cuban descent, released their own statements ripping the deceased leader. “Is this a real statement or a parody? Because if this is a real statement from the PM of Canada it is shameful & embarrassing,” Rubio tweeted, linking to Trudeau's statement on Castro's death. “Disgraceful," Cruz tweeted of Trudeau's remarks. "Why...
