One of the instances of a great nation is impressive and tasteful monuments. They may be understated, as in London, where they are rarely larger than a nine-feet tall statue of a statesman or monarch, and include foreigners and former enemies (Washington, South African leader Jan Smuts, de Gaulle, and ...Read More...

Every week there are further revelations of the rot that has corroded almost every aspect of the U.S. criminal-justice system, and the last few weeks have produced particularly rich harvests of such evidence. Leading them has been the description by Judith Miller, former correspondent of the New York ...Read More...

The Mike Duffy trial opened with a formidable blast from his counsel, Donald Bayne, predicting that Nigel Wright, who is renowned to all as an honourable man and has been exempted from any charge in the matter, will confirm in his testimony that Duffy was pushed “by the Prime Minister’s Office” into ...Read More...

The Iran nuclear-agreement “framework” has been meticulously dissected and it appears that the United States, in order not to fumble completely through another deadline, agreed to fuzzy wording that claims progress and leaves a great deal of important precision unsettled and still to be argued about, ...Read More...

As the prodigious six-power effort to make enough pre-emptive concessions to Iran for that country to accept the status of a threshold nuclear state (with an unverifiable promise not to complete the process for 10 years) sailed through yet another deadline before dissolving in celebrations of a new ...Read More...

This is written as the Iran nuclear talks come right up to their March 31 deadline.

Hillary Clinton’s latest debacle, with her e-mails, has been such a shambles of mismanaged, fumbling obfuscation that many prominent members of the media have tentatively concluded that she is faltering as a presidential candidate approximately a month before her candidacy (which has been in progress ...Read More...

The federal government deserves credit for unveiling its plans for regeneration of Canada’s long-shrinking navy.

Every week seems to bring new revelations of the need for reform of the U.S. criminal-justice system.

Bill C-51, the federal government’s Anti-Terrorism Act, 2015, is the principal official response to the increasing threat of terrorism, a phenomenon that infamously prorupted into the central block of Parliament on Oct. 22, after the murder of a soldier ceremonially guarding the grave of the unknown ...Read More...

When Pierre Trudeau introduced individual rights as a method of muddying the waters in the onslaught by Quebec nationalists on the division of federal-provincial rights in 1968, I supported it, although I was one of the many who predicted that the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, adopted in 1982, would ...Read More...
