This goes well beyond a slip; it's a conceit with a useful history in disparaging Indigenous claims.

In mid-May the federal government began to release the long-awaited results of the 2016 Agriculture Census. While lots of the detail has yet to be revealed, there is enough to see the big picture.

With Parliament looking to summer recess, it is a good time to reflect on what went wrong, and what to like.

Socialism is no longer a dirty word and left-wing parties have valuable lessons to learn from authentic candidates who were able to attract the youth vote.

Nothing says "Happy Birthday, President" quite like a congressional lawsuit.

Reading the Trudeau government's new foreign policy announcements, it is difficult to see what the Liberals have to offer the world.

The revival of "1837" revealed that our show is (relatively gently) charged with overlooking truer victims: the First Nations.

With its giant boost to military spending, the Trudeau government is gearing up for more Western adventurism, using NATO to prop up a failing finance capitalism by military threats.
Amy Goodman, Denis Moynihan June 8
The FBI has become the darling of Trump's opponents. But this powerful, secretive federal police force has a long, dark and often violent history of suppressing dissent in the U.S.
Linda McQuaig June 8
In an age when control over energy shapes global politics and the fate of the world, why wouldn't Canadians be happy to leave our energy in the hands of Trump's Washington and Big Oil?

In the 150th year of Confederation, Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard wants to talk about how Canada governs itself. Justin Trudeau put him off, saying he did not want to open the Constitution.

Corbyn boldly, even recklessly, doubled down, blaming the bombing partly on the aggressive, militaristic foreign policy of previous leaders, including Labour's own Tony Blair. Why did it work?
Amy Goodman, Denis Moynihan June 1
With a death toll over four times as high as Manchester, with hundreds injured, Kabul gets mentioned only in brief reports, the dead and injured listed as numbers rather than names.

There are a number of concerns that come along with a renegotiation of NAFTA. Canadians enjoy stronger digital rights protections than their U.S. counterparts -- policies that could be placed at risk.

The film "Forget Winnetou!" uses the novels of Karl May, who published his first book about a character named Winnetou in 1870, to explore the German idealization of Indigenous peoples.

The Liberals are delighted to attack new CPC leader Andrew Scheer for his social conservative views. His first challenge will be to show he is up to the standard set by Rona Ambrose as interim leader.

Air Canada has fared much better since its executives abandoned financial engineering in favour of actually running an airline. Real prosperity can't come from buying and selling pieces of paper.

Trump's speech in Riyadh this week was normal foreign policy drivel, which came as a relief. It was no more preposterous than what Obama, Clinton, or Trudeau deliver when they talk world issues.
Murray Dobbin May 25
As they choose a new leader, NDP members will decide what they want their party to be. The two candidates who stand in greatest contrast are Manitoba MP Niki Ashton and newcomer Jagmeet Singh.
Amy Goodman, Denis Moynihan May 25
Donald Trump's arms deal with Saudi Arabia is wrong. It will inflame an already war-ravaged region, hitting Yemen especially hard.
Katie Douglas, Pro Bono May 25
At the beginning of May, a group of tenants in Toronto went on a rent strike, taking a creative and courageous stand to fix the issue of affordable housing.

U.S. President Donald Trump took off last Friday for a nine-day trip abroad that did not begin with (or include) a stop in Canada. The Trudeau government cannot be too disappointed.

The cultural appropriation debate broke new ground this week, for me anyway. I confess I was among those who always saw it as essentially a matter of free speech: the right to write what one chose.
Amy Goodman, Denis Moynihan May 18
What if Donald Trump were actually held responsible for real crimes: killing civilians in drone strikes, forcing refugees to suffer or die, or driving the planet into climate change?
Matthew Behrens May 17
What follows is a cautionary tale that, despite all the assurances by the RCMP that they would never consider protests to be terrorism under C-51, this remains standard operating procedure.

By turning the focus on Canadian dairy farming, U.S. President Donald Trump has unwittingly helped to remind us why supply management is key to treating farmers fairly.

Jagmeet Singh has joined the NDP leadership race and his long-anticipated candidacy creates a new dynamic in a contest that runs until the fall.

I'd have fired James Comey too. The guy is delusional, grandiose and a drama queen (who does that remind you of?). The former FBI director thinks it's all about him.
Linda McQuaig May 11
With the help of heavy hitters from Wall Street, Bill Morneau has been designing a radical new bank that will deliver some of Canada's infrastructure into the hands of private investors.
