Justin Trudeau’s government continues to discriminate against transgender people. His apology means nothing

December 2, 2017

Although we acknowledge the recent trans legal gains to which the liberal government has contributed, we also denounce the lack of efforts to solve urgent issues that continue to affect the most precarious and stigmatised members of our community

Oppose Trudeau and Trump, the Canada-US alliance, and imperialist war!

December 1, 2017

The true character of the Trudeau government as a government of imperialist reaction is exemplified by its foreign-defence policy and drive to deepen Canada’s economic and military-strategic partnership with Washington under the Trump administration, the most right-wing in modern American history.

Justin Trudeau versus Stephen Harper: What’s the difference?

April 1, 2017

By 2015, for most Canadians, the Harper government had run out its time. Voters decided to replace it with the Trudeau Liberals. How is that working out?

‘No country would find 173 billion barrels of oil in the ground and just leave them’: Trudeau

March 10, 2017

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau received an unusually warm reception of his keynote address at an energy industry conference in Texas on Thursday evening.

“No country would find 173 billion barrels of oil in the ground and just leave them there,” Trudeau said in his address to oil and gas industry executives at Houston’s CERAWeek conference, discussing Alberta’s vast oil sands reserves.

 

Liberals tack right, jettison progressive policy

February 22, 2017

When the Canada-Europe trade deal known as CETA came up for vote in the European parliament February 15, the Progressive Alliance Group opposed it: 254 members of the European parliament voted no; 33 abstained; and 408 voted yes.

While in Europe championing CETA, a deal fostered by Stephen Harper, Trudeau lined up with the conservative Christian Democrats — not the Democrats, or Socialists, or Green Party members. On key issues such as Indigenous rights, climate change, and protection of the marine environment from fuel spills, Justin Trudeau has his party moving right, taking positions defended by the Conservatives. Why is he putting his progressive image at risk?

Liberals’ online survey is a tactic to derail electoral reform

December 8, 2016

The current Liberal government has put a big chunk of the electoral reform process in the hands of a data analytics firm called Vox Pop, and that is truly disturbing.
If you go to the Democratic Reform section of the Government of Canada website you will be directed to Vox Pop’s survey. What you will find is simplistic and manipulative.
The questions and options offered point to a clear bias against electoral reform, especially any reform that would include a large element of proportionality.
This may or may not be intentional.

Canada Oil Pipeline: Trudeau Just Knocked Over the First Domino

December 5, 2016

This post reminds us that while we’ve all been fixating on US pipeline policy, both current– e.g. DAPL — and future– under president-elect Trump, the US has no monopoly on poor pipeline decisions that in the long-run will only exacerbate climate change. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s decision to approve a major expansion of the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline has major international implications, as author Kevin Grandia spells out below.

Justin Trudeau ‘disengaged’ on nuclear weapons file

December 4, 2016

At the United Nations in late October 123 countries voted in favour of a recommendation endorsing the launch of negotiations aimed at prohibiting nuclear weapons. Canada voted no. Douglas Roche, this country’s former Ambassador for Disarmament at the UN, is clearly piqued. “The government turned its back on an important nuclear disarmament initiative,” he says, “and sided with the nuclear weapons states that want to keep and modernize their nuclear arsenals for the rest of the 21st century.”

Roche adds, “the blame for the Canadian diplomatic debacle belongs squarely on the desk of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, whose office won’t even answer letters or phone calls from high-ranking persons trying to alert him to the need for Canadian action.” Roche says that Trudeau seems “disengaged” on nuclear arms control and that his government has undermined the nuclear disarmament work championed by his father Pierre Trudeau.
