  • Doug Ford should not be quick to reject Trump comparison

    More negative coverage he gets from the left wing media, the more he will resonate with ordinary people. Ford should not run around saying, “Vote for me, I’m just like Donald Trump.” But he should not run away from comparisons to the U.S. president Since winning the leadership of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party a week ago, former Toronto City Councillor Doug Ford has been compared to Donald Trump. And not in a good way. But as polls taken since his victory indicate, a significant number of Ontarians do not like him but will vote for him anyway in order...

Representatives from Egypt and Jordan, with which Israel enjoys open diplomatic relations, were also in attendance. Canadian and European officials participated as well. Although they were invited, the Palestinians chose to boycott the conference. Their boycott was...

    The Regina Leader-Post ^ | March 16, 2018 | Victor Ferreira
    An Ontario judge has rejected a Saskatchewan woman’s efforts to triple her spousal support two decades after her divorce, deciding instead to cut off her main source of income completely. Kevin Choquette, a retired bank analyst worth more than $14 million, applied to the court to end the $57,000 per year in spousal support he has been paying Yvonne Choquette for 22 years. In response, Yvonne Choquette requested that her support be tripled to $180,000 per year. In a decision published on March 1, Judge Kenneth Hood sided with Kevin Choquette, 62, explaining the reason he’s stripping Yvonne Choquette, 62,...

  • A 14-year-old girl owes $20,000 in damages after a house party — and her parents are on the hook

    After using her parents’ credit card to rent a house in which to throw a wild party, a Canadian 14-year-old is in major trouble — $20,000 worth, actually. That’s the amount of damage the teens caused, and which her parents must now pay. Last week, police responded to a call that reported an “uncontrolled party” at a neighborhood home in West Vancouver, where nearly 200 teens were seen “flooding out” once officials arrived, according to CTV News. Left in their wake was a house with much destruction — to walls, furniture, and artwork, all of which her parents will be...
  • Tariffs: Trump’s Prelude to Ending Unfair Trade Practices

    President Donald Trump’s new tariffs on imported steel and aluminum look like an effort that goes beyond its stated rationale of preserving national security. The tariffs could be the first of a number of initiatives by the Trump administration to retaliate against unfair foreign trade practices. “We’re going to see who’s treating us fairly, who’s not treating us fairly,” Trump said at the White House on March 8 while rolling out the new trade barriers. Trump signed orders imposing a 25 percent tariff on imported steel and a 10 percent tariff on imported aluminum. However, he has kept the doors...

    The King and Queen of Belgium have been snubbed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during their royal visit to Canada this week. The Belgian royals had expressed their wishes to meet with the Prime Minister during their six-day stay, but the Canadian leader is too busy touring aluminum and steel smelters this week. King Philippe and his wife Mathilde arrived in Ottawa on Sunday for the first visit by Belgian royals since 1977, and over the coming days will also make stops in Toronto and Montreal.

    American Greatness ^ | March 6, 2018 | Spencer P Morrison
    President Trump is right. Our trading partners—particularly China, Japan, and Mexico—are taking America to the woodshed. Consider that China steals more than half a trillion dollars in American intellectual property every single year. This is one of the reasons America’s trade deficit with China is so massive. For example, in 2010 Chinese companies stole high-speed rail designs from American firms, thereby depriving them of hundreds of billions in potential revenues. Such theft occurs in nearly every industry, whether it’s software programs or branded consumer goods. And the worst part? We let it happen. The globalist GOP refuses to punish China...

    The press is fascinated by a gimmicky idea also involving Britain, Australia, and New Zealand. In the wake of President Trump’s recent tariff binge, much criticism has been leveled against what we might call “nostalgia economics” — that is, the belief that sentimental instincts are just as useful as market-tested evidence when it comes to setting economic policy.It’s a philosophy not unknown elsewhere in the Western world. In Britain and Canada in particular, there exists a long history of believing that trading too much with the wrong sorts of countries reflects a deep character flaw, and that the wisest flow...

    CNBC ^ | 15 hours ago | Eric Rosenbaum
    Speaking on television last week, Trump's Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross made an unusual statement about the White House tariff plans, specifically about carve-outs for Mexico and Canada. Ross called the administration's definition of national security something new and unusual itself. "It's not the conventional definition of national security," Ross said. It's clear from Trump's post-tax-cut shift to correcting imbalances in global trade — something Trump has cared about for a lot longer and with a lot more passion than tax policy — that an evolving definition of national security is a geopolitical and stock market risk. Panic, on either front,...

    Canada’s Minister of Environment and Climate Change is urging environmental activists to address the “gendered impacts” of climate change, especially its effects on women and girls. In a recent post on Twitter, Catherine McKenna, the 47-year-old Trudeau appointee from Canada’s Liberal Party, called on followers to “consider the gendered impacts of climate change on women, girls and children” while praising Canada’s leadership in training “women negotiators” in the fight against manmade global warming. Apparently, at least in the minister’s mind, the weather is now waging its own “war on women.”

    March 8 (UPI) -- President Donald Trump on Thursday, joined by steel and aluminum workers at the White House, imposed his promised industrial tariffs -- 25 percent on imported steel and 10 percent on foreign-made aluminum. Trump signed the tariff proclamations Thursday afternoon in a meeting with industry workers and officials -- ushering in fiscal penalties that have drawn ire from world leaders and sparked fears of a possible trade war. "A nation that does not protect property at home cannot protect its property abroad," Trump said. The White House said Canada and Mexico will initially be excluded from the...

    A group of about eight Montreal residents who attended a city meeting wearing small yellow badges in protest of Jewish school buses faced a wave of accusations of anti-Semitism. But their leader, Ginette Chartre, says they will not back down, the Canadian Press reported. A growing Hasidic community in the Montreal borough of Outremont uses school buses to drop children off around the city, causing tension with neighbors who say the constant bus traffic causes congestion, noise and pollution, reported the Canadian Jewish News. Chartre and other residents showed up at a public meeting to complain on March 5, wearing...

    The White House said Wednesday it may exempt Mexico, Canada and other nations from tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. "There are potential carve-outs for Mexico and Canada based on national security, and possibly other countries as well based on that process” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters, adding other nations could receive exemptions as well. "That would be a case-by-case and country-by-country basis but it would be determined whether or not there is a national security exemption," she said. Sanders reiterated that President Trump plans to announce the tariffs by the end of the week.
