Trudeau is on the ropes, but can NDP provide a viable, progressive alternative? 28.2.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Karl Nerenberg The politics of the SNC-Lavalin affair cut many ways. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau seems to have betrayed his promise of open and transparent government, but is unwavering in defending his government's support for jobs, especially in Quebec. Conservatives and their leader Andrew Scheer hypocritically decry the Trudeau government's willingness to conflate the interests of the Liberal party with those of the country.

Glaciers melting in the Himalayas threaten tens of millions of people downstream with flooding and the disruption of water supplies. As evidence that the planet is experiencing what has been called "the sixth great extinction," a recent review of scientific data concludes that 40 per cent of the world's insects are on the brink of extinction. President Donald Trump's response? During the polar vortex, he tweeted: "What the hell is going on with Global Waming? (sic) Please ...
