Whose conference is this anyway? | Apr 21 2015 | Brad Hornick | Chris Hedges, Moby Dick and the State of Extraction
Jim Prentice
How low can Jim Prentice go? | Apr 21 2015 | David J. Climenhaga | How many seats can Alberta Premier Jim Prentice lose for the 44-year-old PC Government he was brought in expressly to save and still avoid having to resign?
Rachel Notley
There's plenty of opposition to Alberta's PCs -- the question is, which way will it break? | Apr 20 2015 | David J. Climenhaga | Wouldn't that be a shocker, to Alberta not to mention the rest of the Dominion, if the polls turned out to be right and victor in the May 5 election was not the Progressive Conservatives?

Nova Scotia budget repairs the boat but doesn't do any fishing | Apr 20 2015 | Ralph Surette | Last week's budget, for better or worse, marked a milestone on the icy road to wherever it is we're going in the rickety wagon of Nova Scotia politics.
Alberta poised to turn NDP orange as Tory grip on power withers | Apr 20 2015 | Penney Kome | Jim Prentice must be wondering what happened to the Progressive Conservative party's iron grip on Alberta politics. Well, perhaps Rachel Notley happened.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Afghanistan in 2009, enjoying a Tim Hortons cof
No, Mr. Harper. They don't hate us for our freedoms. | Apr 20 2015 | Gerry Caplan | Stephen Harper, like George W. Bush before him, tells us extremists target Canadians because they 'hate our society.' Nope. They just hate our murderous foreign policy.

The MPs are back and there will be lots of noise | Apr 20 2015 | Karl Nerenberg | The House of Commons returns after a two-week break. There will be a (late) budget, questions arising out of the Duffy trial, sale of the Wheat Board and much more.
Ten things George Lakoff taught me | Apr 20 2015 | Gary Shaul | George Lakoff spoke in Toronto on April 18. His talk shone lights on how progressives can step up our game.
Film Industry Rally at Province House, Nova Scotia.
Straight through the heart: Liberals take aim at Nova Scotia's economy | Apr 20 2015 | Christopher Majka | Austerity -- single-mindedly pursuing short-term debt and deficit reduction -- is politics racing willy-nilly down a blind alley without a long-term vision of how to grow both the economy and society.
Theft from Canada Post mail superboxes a growing concern | Apr 19 2015 | Krystalline Kraus | All home mail delivery is scheduled to be phased out by 2019.
Rachel Notley
Alberta NDP's Rachel Notley introduces detailed platform | Apr 19 2015 | David J. Climenhaga | Look for a panel of six or seven serious-looking PC ministers to show up any minute now to prognosticate grimily about what happens when you "tax and spend."
Rachel Notley
Alberta Election: NDP gains traction, Wildrose comes close to full slate, but don't count PCs out | Apr 18 2015 | David J. Climenhaga | The obvious factual flaws in Alberta Premier Jim Prentice's efforts to fear-monger about his opponents may not matter nearly as much as how widely they are disseminated.
