Independence Day is a moment for Canadians to recommit to being different from the U.S..

July 4, 2018

Today is the Fourth of July, Independence Day in the Great Republic immediately to our south.

Normally, as befits our national character, we Canadians celebrate this occasion with restrained fondness for our American cousins, coming as it does just three days after la fête du Canada.

On the 242nd observance of this occasion, however, owing to the unexpectedly fraught relationship of our neighbours with most of their neighbours and allies, including us, perhaps our feelings will not be expressed quite so warmly this year.

Trump to Trudeau: Canada is undermining NATO…

June 26, 2018

In advance of the NATO summit in Brussels July 11-12, Donald Trump is calling on Canada to step up its military spending to $44 billion per year, or two per cent of Canadian GDP (which is $2.2 trillion). Currently Canada spends $25 billion, or 1.2 per cent of GDP, on the military.

Canadian Taxpayers Federation funded by right-wing U.S. based Atlas Network..

June 25, 2018

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation, a self-described non-partisan tax watchdog and taxpayer advocacy group once headed by Alberta Opposition Leader Jason Kenney, has always been tight-lipped about the sources of its own funding.

Canada rallies behind US in its incendiary anti-Russia offensive

April 11, 2018

Just hours after unverified reports of a poison gas attack in Syria emerged Sunday, Canada’s Liberal government issued a statement provocatively blaming the Assad regime and its ally Russia for “war crimes.” Following hot on the heels of Ottawa’s expulsion of four Russian diplomats over the alleged poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal, and Ottawa’s claim that Russia has “interfered” in Canada’s “democracy,” the Trudeau government’s response makes clear that it is in the frontline of the US-led charge to war.

Canada’s NDP backs American Empire

August 12, 2017

Does the NDP consistently support a foreign policy that benefits ordinary people around the world? Or does the social democratic party often simply fall in line with whatever the American Empire demands?

Keystone XL Activists Labeled Possible Eco-Terrorists in Internal TransCanada Documents

June 14, 2013

 

Documents recently obtained by Bold Nebraska show that TransCanada – owner of the hotly-contested Keystone XL (KXL)tar sands pipeline – has colluded with an FBI/DHS Fusion Center in Nebraska, labeling non-violent activists as possible candidates for “terrorism” charges and other serious criminal charges.

Further, the language in some of the documents is so vague that it could also ensnare journalists, researchers and academics, as well.
