 The Conservative government has been the most centralized and secretive government in Canadian history. It brought in legislation to ostensibly clean up ‘Liberal corruption.’ Remarkably, it has actually made things worse, as it abandoned numerous promises it made while in opposition regarding transparency and accountability. Its ironically named Accountability Act has twelve new blanket exemptions ...

Our electoral system unfairly punishes Conservative voters in cities, Liberal and NDP voters in the west, and Green voters throughout Canada.

“Parliament can hardly be weakened any more than it already is. Harper can’t go much further without making the institution dysfunctional. He is trying to control every aspect of House business.

At the end of the year 2003, Haiti was a nation struggling to overcome two centuries of brutal dictatorships and ecological disaster.

Canada must never ignore the importance of a healthy relationship with the United States. No matter who is in the White House and no matter how different our national perspectives may be, a close relationship is dictated through geography, history, and trade. Canada’s level of respect and influence in the world is strangely measured both ...

Iran’s recent electoral change has been greeted with cautious optimism in the United States and other world capitals, while Harper’s Administration has continued to regard Iran’s intentions as hostile and its new leadership as insincere.
