Trudeau's jabs at Mulcair show gaping holes in Liberal platform | Aug 21 2015 | Dan Darrah | If Trudeau wants to remain a strong player in the election, trying to out-progressive Mulcair is a losing strategy. The Liberals need to start making commitments and stop flip-flopping on others.
It's time we talked about health care this election | Aug 21 2015 | Michael Butler | There seems to be a conspicuous absence of any talk regarding Canadian health care this election and the devastation caused to the system over the past nine years of Conservative rule.

Remember Jack Layton and build a better Canada | Aug 21 2015 | Libby Davies | Saturday August 22 marks the fourth anniversary of Jack Layton's death. On this day we remember Jack and his life, what will you think about? What will you resolve to do?

Trudeau Liberals hunt for centre-right voters | Aug 18 2015 | Duncan Cameron | The Liberal strategy under Justin Trudeau appears to be the same one pursued in the Ignatieff era: wait for the Conservatives to collapse, and then scoop up the centre-right vote.

Linda McQuaig states a fact, everyone freaks out | Aug 10 2015 | Michael Laxer | If we continue to fiddle with political fantasies while the planet burns, who was right about the tar sands will become very clear soon enough. We can only hope that at that point it is not too late.
Liberals' 'evidence-based policy' routine more style than substance | Aug 9 2015 | J. Baglow | Liberals once cried aloud for the supremacy of evidence over ideology. But over crass political opportunism? Not so much.

Liberals try to create confusion on a federal minimum wage | Aug 7 2015 | Scott Piatkowski | The Liberals abolished the federal minimum wage. Now they can't figure out where they stand on bringing it back.

Can the NDP and Liberals differentiate themselves enough to beat Harper? | Jul 31 2015 | Rick Salutin | This election, for two-thirds of Canadians, shouldn't have to be about a choice between two flawed opposition parties who don't differ on much. It should be a choice between Harper and not-Harper.

As an MP, Chow was a passionate advocate for public transit | Jul 29 2015 | Karl Nerenberg | During her tenure in the House, Olivia Chow proposed initiatives to get the federal government involved in Canada's frayed urban transit systems.

Polls, byelections and ruts: Taking the temperature of politics in Nova Scotia | Jul 27 2015 | Ralph Surette | It's that peculiar time again -- roughly midway (already!) in a government's life -- when the exhilaration of a new voyage hits the potholes.
Eve Adams shows that the Trudeau jig is up | Jul 27 2015 | Michael Laxer | The game, for Justin, is likely over.
