Obviously the future of health care policy rests on a knife edge. It is a political game of chicken between whether Republicans have the nerve to roll back the egregious features of Obamacare that will necessarily involve creating gaps in insurance coverage, and Democrats who think that they are in the catbird seat because either the eventual collapse of Obamacare or the defects of a Republican reform will set the »
Sooner or later most everyone is going to realize that Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is a hopeless lightweight trading entirely on his father’s prestige, which was itself built largely on media image-crafting that would humble Donald Trump. Perhaps the left will turn on him first, because yesterday Trudeau came out in favor of the Keystone XL pipeline, but also in favor of the continued development of Canada’s oil sands—both »
Last night, soon after it happened, I wrote about the shooting at a mosque in Quebec City. As I warned, some of the information being reported initially was inaccurate — par for the course in these kinds of situations. But the main details turned out to be correct. Here is what it now being reported with reasonable confidence: There was one shooter. He is Alexandre Bissonnette, a 27 year-old political »
At least five people were killed when gunmen opened fire at a mosque in Quebec City during evening prayers. The number of injured victims has not yet been reported. Approximately 40 people are said to have been at the religious service. The police reportedlly have arrested two men in connection with the shooting. According to a local newspaper, one of the arrested suspects was 27 years old and had a »
In this post, I suggested that Great Britain’s refusal to join European governments in signing a joint agreement regarding negotiations for a two-state solution for Israel-Palestine may well be due to a “Trump effect.” Britain wants good relations with the new U.S. president. In particular, it would like a trade deal. Trump seems favorable disposed to negotiating one. It makes no sense for Britain to jeopardize this state of affairs »
Barack Obama has sometimes been criticized for not being presidential enough, and Donald Trump has taken non-presidential to previously unknown levels. But at least they both have kept their clothes on. From Canada comes the news–the story appeared on April 1, but doesn’t appear to be a joke–that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will pose naked on the cover of a gay magazine: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is reportedly planning »
I was curious whether the election of Justin Trudeau in Canada might mean the end of the Keystone XL pipeline, since Trudeau holds orthodox views about climate change. But no—he expressed his support for Keystone, which means he isn’t going to let the Obama Administration off the hook for its shameful disrespect for our northern neighbor and largest trading partner. Yesterday TransCanada asked the U.S. government to suspend its review »
Justin Trudeau led Canada’s Liberal Party to a smashing victory over incumbent Conservative Stephen Harper last night. Trudeau’s Liberal Party captured an outright majority of 184 (out of 338) seats in Canada’s Parliament. Trudeau will become Canada’s twenty-third prime minister. The outcome represented a dramatic reversal of fortunes for the Liberals, who had fallen to third place in Canada’s last national election. The Conservatives came away with 99 seats, down »
