    Trudeau Popularity - or not. Nanos research

    I believe, base on rumours, I have NO real knowledge, that the Liberal party nabobs are deeply divided on the issue of Prime Minister Trudeau's near term fate. Some believe that if he quits now and they elect a less unpopular leader (i.e. NOT Chrystia Freeland) that (s)he might limit the damage...

    Chinese Military,Political and Social Superthread

    From The Economist: China’s leaders face miserable economic-growth figures The jingxi hotel in Beijing is known for its home-made yogurt—and for hosting some of the most important meetings in the history of the Chinese Communist Party. These gatherings include the “third plenum” of 1978, which...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    This is, in my opinion, a very astute political position. Mr Poilievre knows that the majority of Canadians are, at best, indifferent to NATO's/the US' demand that we spend 2% of GDP on defence. Equally many, likely most Canadians also know that the country's fiancees are not in good shape and...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    Robyn Urback, writing in the Globe and Mail, sums up the situation for Canada: " ... it was a different type of alarm watching from up here in Canada; almost like a kid watching his incapacitated parents brawling over who ate the last piece of pizza. Here we are, peering down from the second...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    I'm not sure the highlighted bit is 100% accurate. I think then Prime Minister Harper said, in Wales, that 2% was an "aspirational goal."

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    David Parkinson, drawing in the Globe and Mail, sums up the Washington meeting dilemma: how to tell Justin Trudeau's Canada to pull up its military socks or risk being formally, and very publicly, insulted as a freeloader.

    From today's Globe and Mail: ----- U.S. plans to press Canada, other NATO allies at summit to meet 2% spending target The Biden administration is warning Canada and other NATO countries that are failing to pay their fair share in military spending to prepare for a dressing down at the...

    The "Did Minister Sajjan 'Order' Sikh's To Be Airlifted?" Merged Thread

    Robyn Urbacjk, writing in the Globe and Mail, explains the Trudeau-Sajjan rules for us: ----- Harjit Sajjan will remain in cabinet, and shame on you for asking about it One thing that Canadians have learned over the course of the past nine years is that, in this government, there is no such...

    Current Dress Regs

    I mean temperate woodland camo is so appropriative for operations in orbit, right? Let's hear no more about the former Canadian "garrison dress."

    The "Did Minister Sajjan 'Order' Sikh's To Be Airlifted?" Merged Thread

    The Globe and Mail adds its editorial voice: "Harjit Sajjan, Canada’s minister of defence during the fall of Kabul in August, 2021, had a lot on his hands as the deadline for airlifting people out of Afghanistan at the end of that month rapidly approached. His primary “duty and obligation,” as...

    Some thoughts on the Liberal leadership dilemma from the Canadian Press' Laura Osman, reproduced in the Globe and Mail: "Calls have intensified for Justin Trudeau to resign as head of the party he almost single-handedly pulled back from the brink after a decimating electoral defeat in 2011...

    David Parkins, drawing in the Globe and Mail, shows us what I suspect is on the minds of many Liberal nabobs (riding association presidents and so on): you, PMJT, got us into this mess, you can lead us to the logical conclusion. I think most Liberals (big shots, political pros, and just...

    Lt.-Gen. Jennie Carignan chosen as next chief of the defence staff

    The problem, as I saw it, was a few (I need to emphasize that word "few") operators who decided that the engineering degree they earned 25 years previously suddenly qualified them to come to the big league meetings and challenge the work of teams of expert engineers, military and civilian, on...

    A Deeply Fractured US

    From Kelly Craft, the former 🇺🇸 U.S. 🇺🇸 ambassador to Canada, in the Globe and Mail: "Mr. Trump is indeed likely to return. U.S. President Joe Biden is the most unpopular president since the end of the Second World War. He recently hit a new low of 37.4 per cent approval in the FiveThirtyEight...

    A Deeply Fractured US

    We are starting to see some MAGA ideas from reputable sources. Robert Lighthizer, who is on many 'shortslists' to be Treasury Secretary says, in The Economist, "Since the end of the cold war, America has come as close as almost any major country in history to eliminating significant tariffs.

    2022 CPC Leadership Discussion: Et tu Redeux

    I think the issue of First Nations ownership plays to two policy platform propaganda lines: First: real 'reconciliation' means First Nations, (vice (foreign) corporate/bond holder) ownership of resources and delivery systems; and Second: the "green left" is actually racist, trying to hold First...
