Saudi Arabia, our Middle Eastern allies, just killed 47 people deemed "terrorists" in a single day. But, Canada has "no intention" of cancelling $15 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia.
If Prime Minister Justin Trudeau really wanted "real change" perhaps he should consider nixing this arms deal.
OK, now even in the Maritimes spring has sprung and with it, a deluge of actions. This week the "Fight for $15" protests turned into what is being called the largest protests of low-wage workers in U.S. history, and thousands of Canadians joined their ranks. The best thing about these protests are the slogans, which turn fast-food platitudes on their heads with chants like "All those burgers, all those fries. We want wages supersized!" With more unions starting to mobilize for the election, if the pressure keeps up, we could be in for a hot summer of protests and change.
