Margaret Wente hits it out of the park with this article. There are a lot of kids who shouldn't be in university. Many of them will graduate and not have jobs in their field. I love how Wente calls it victim stydies( like I do) In fact, Quebec’s students have good reason to be furious. They should be furious at the professors who tell them that their cause is just, and who have deluded them

This new Rogers deal may be the death rattle for the cbc. I am not going to shed any tears for the state broadcaster. The deal removes some of cbc advertising revenue and they still have to pay 100 million a year to broadcast the games. HM Canadian government has already said there are no plans to bal out the CBC. Indeed I hope HM Canadian Government cuts even more! Let the cbc cut its operations

I was born in Kerala, India, but I have now lived in Canada for 50 years. I still have many familial and even economic ties to the land of my birth. I somewhat despair of Indian politics. There will be federal elections next year. It will be a clash between the dauphin Rahul Gandhi of Congress against the Chief Minister of Gujarat Modi of the BJP. Normally I would support the centre right BJP part

I attended a speech given by HM PM Stephen Harper at the Montreal Board of Trade last Friday. The subject was the newly signed Canada EU free trade agreement. It was great to see HM PM Brian Mulroney also at the head table.  The speech was well received and lavished praise on Brian Mulroney. HM PM Harper was playful and funny. I had a chance to speak to HM Pm Harper , HM Pm Brian Mulrone

and the Tories. It is indeed good new that a free trad has been signed with the European Union. Much of our trade with the EU is with the UK and until Great Britain can extricate itself from the EU tyranny, this is as close as we can get to free trade with the UK. The usual suspects already oppose it. Maude Barlow who is always wrong about everything and the addle brained lizzie may, who earlier

I am concerned by the Commonwealth bashing of late by HM Canadian Government. I do agree that Sri Lanka's government has acted abominably. The Sti Lankan government is guilty of terrible persecution of the Tamil minority. I must make a mea culpa. My native tongue is Malayalam, a language closely related to Tamil. I am very sympathetic to my Tamil cousins. Though I totally opposed the tigers and

And the Anglosphere!!! For the first time in a long time the UK and all the senior realms have conservative, mostly loyal governments. Australia's 6 year green nightmare is now over. It is the time to increase trade between the Commonwealth Realms and hopefully make the Commonwealth a huge free trade zone. The Australian Liberals and the Canadian Tories have close and friendly ties. My enthusiast

I am disappointed by the CRTC decision ( and yes I want to get rid of the crtc), but it does seem that they are paying attention to the fact that others like CNN are getting mandatory carry and higher fees.

We seem very quick to judgement the days, especially if the person accused is conservative. What happened to presumed innocence?  Saulie Zajdel and anyone accused of a crime has the right to due process.

Brent Rathgeber stood up for his convictions and gave a rebuke to the Conservative party. The party would be wise to listen. Changing the sunshine list to over $444000 is ridiculous. It would really cover almost no one. The number should be reduced to $120000. It is the people's money/ let them see how it is spent. Mp's and senators expenses should also be published.
