Canada’s overall debt picture remains bleak. About a quarter of Canadians can only make their minimum credit card payments, and 22 percent are sinking further into credit debt.
As the world meets in Dubai for the COP28 climate conference, it’s become increasingly unclear if Canada will be able to achieve its own emission reduction targets. The national consensus around the carbon tax is collapsing.
There are common sense improvements to be made to Canada’s licensing system. To accomplish them, however, the government will need to view legal gun owners as allies, not cheap political targets.

Canada and the United States have radically different firearm cultures. We must understand Canadian gun culture and the causes of Canadian gun violence, not cynically point at American headlines and decree that we will put an end to the problems of another country.
Silicon Valley’s biggest stars are starting to dim. Rather than coast into the future, they seem hellbent on making our lives much more annoying for the sake of insisting they’re still innovative.
Cyril Henry Hoskin, depending on your own sense of charity, was either a shameless con artist or a misguided believer in his own ludicrousness. Eventually making his way to Canada, he found Calgary the only tolerable place in the whole country.

Hockey is a business, and the NHL would make players pull the Stanley Cup out of a Subway bag if they thought viewers would tolerate it. The league will keep profiting, and Canadians will keep watching.
Canadians pay exorbitant prices to travel or to use our phones simply because the airlines and telecom companies in this country are shielded from any meaningful competition. Their service sucks, their costs soar, and the government stands by and watches.
