Scheer government would seek to join U.S. missile defence program..

May 6, 2019

OTTAWA–Andrew Scheer will announce tomorrow that a Conservative government would start talks with the Trump administration to join the U.S. continental missile defence program, the Star has learned.

While the U.S. has sought the Canadian government’s co-operation on a missile defence program since the early 2000s, successive governments — both Liberal and Conservative — have refused.

Canada: a Force for Good or a Tag-along Bully Nation?

January 29, 2019

Most Canadians think of their country as a force for good in the world, but recent efforts by Justin Trudeau’s government to overthrow Venezuela’s elected government have once again revealed the ugly truth about the Great White North. We are an important partner in imperialism, willing to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, up to and including the use of military force, to benefit the perceived self-interest of our elites.

US and Canadian elites demand Trudeau government toughen its anti-China stance..

January 9, 2019

The American and Canadian ruling elites are demanding Canada’s Liberal government fall fully in line with Washington’s ever more aggressive stance against China.

Although Ottawa has been a key partner in Washington’s military-strategic offensive against Beijing, strong pressure is now being brought to bear on the Trudeau government to go still further. For starters, by banning the China-based telecommunications giant Huawei from Canada’s 5G network and by ruling out any prospect of a free trade deal with China.

China makes Canada pay for playing US lackey..

December 13, 2018

All this time Canada actually dutifully followed the US lead and even copied some of its trendiest policies. Be it following Russophobic hysteria or making billions worth of deals with some Middle Eastern autocrats, Canada was here to march in lockstep with its powerful neighbor. Its response to the alleged murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the hands of Washington’s key Middle Eastern ally – the Saudis – was also conspicuously reserved, particularly for a nation that portrays itself as a fervent champion of human rights.

Now China got a taste of Ottawa’s imitation game, as Canada seemingly decided to get involved into the unfolding economic ‘Cold War’ between Washington and Beijing. Last week Canadian authorities arrested Meng Wanzhou – the Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei’s chief financial officer and the daughter of the company’s founder, Ren Zhengfei – provoking a furious reaction from Beijing.

Free Huawei executive or face consequences, China warns Canada..

December 8, 2018

Canada’s arrest of Meng at the request of the US, while she was changing plane in Vancouver, was a serious breach of her rights, Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng said.

The move “ignored the law, was unreasonable” and was in its very nature “extremely nasty”, he added.

Margaret Atwood warns ‘French Revolution’ is inevitable if US political system does not change.

December 4, 2018

Margaret Atwood has warned that a “French Revolution” is inevitable if the American political system does not change.

The famed author of dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale said several factors have bred inequality in the United States and warned that it could lead to a seismic event similar to that seen in 18th century France, where the ruling class was overthrown.

“There are other factors in this country that make for quite a lot of inequality, so let’s talk about the healthcare system, let’s talk about incarceration policies and let’s talk about the big split between very, very rich people and everybody else,” she said, speaking at Equality Now’s Make Equality Reality Gala in Los Angeles on Monday.

“THE UNITED STATES IS NOT A SAFE COUNTRY”: CANADIAN ADVOCATES WANT TO END A POLICY THAT TURNS ASYLUM-SEEKERS BACK TO U.S…

November 4, 2018

Macklin, the human rights lawyer, said that Trudeau’s government has its priorities wrong. For Canada, she said, “the problem is irregular entry, so the solution has to be preventing irregular entry. No. The problem is that the United States is not a safe country.”

Canada capitulates to Trump on trade with renegotiated NAFTA..

October 1, 2018

The trade deal signed by Canada with the U.S. on Sunday night is called the United States Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA).

If approved by the U.S. Congress, it will replace NAFTA.

The late Mel Hurtig, a foremost publisher, authored his first book about the 1988 Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (FTA), the trade deal that NAFTA replaced. The Betrayal of Canada was a number 1 bestseller.

The USMCA deal awaits a sequel: The Further Betrayal of Canada.

Codename Acor Sycamore – The Saudi-U.S.-Al-Qaeda Operation To Reconquer Canada..

August 6, 2018

Official news of the Saudi-U.S.-Al-Qaeda alliance was probably not enough to make the point. Anyone who crosses a U.S. or Saudi red line will be punished with by al-Qaeda .

Canada crossed such a line. That is what a verified Saudi propaganda account @infographic_ksa expressed today when it published this photo:
