last week, the government of Stephen Harper celebrated the second year of its majority mandate.
This issue, I’d like to take a break from the political arena.
The Liberal Party of Canada’s leadership race, now in its final leg, has forced the party to face the harsh reality of a fragmented Canadian electorate.
Well, well. It seems that Marc Garneau has read my last column concerning the giant splash Justin Trudeau is making in the Liberal Party of Canada’s leadership race.
Not that we were expecting otherwise, but Justin Trudeau should easily win the leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada.
The now unavoidable role of social media in political campaigns has caught the attention of many people. After all, it seems that any self-respecting party must be on Facebook or Twitter. The same goes for party leaders and candidates.
Some may have recognized the question posed by singer Patrick Juvet many years ago. Well, it seems that part of an answer to that question could be located in political headquarters. More specifically, here in Canada, in the offices reserved for female Premiers. I must be explicit on gender in order to reflect the Canadian reality.
In this column I decided to call on my better self and broach a subject that may rattle those under the influence of profound cynicism.
Russian-born Yana Ilinykh, 36, and India-UK immigrant Nina Lindley, 55, represent the multicultural base from which many Vancouverites might draw dieting wisdom.
The three by-elections that took place across the country on November 26, including one in Victoria, show two things: Prime Minister Harper’s troops are losing some battles, and yet he can still have a good night’s sleep. I know this might seem contradictory, so let me explain.
In a previous column, I wrote that Obama sorely needed the votes of young Americans if he were to win the election. With sixty per cent of their votes favoring him, it happened. In fact, and we know this now, Obama got the highest score with pretty well everybody, except with men, whites and the elderly.
In a few days, 240 million American voters will be invited to go to the polls in their respective states to elect their president.
Some Liberal partisans will be very busy in the upcoming months. Indeed, they have to choose three leaders for their respective political party, an embarrassing situation that could have been easily averted.
