New frigates to project Canadian 'power' with cruise missiles A recent report about the weapons on Canada's new Navy frigates is frightening. Equally troubling is the lack of parliamentary opposition to expanding the federal government's violent "maritime power projection" capacities.

Trudeau chooses big pharma's rights over health of billions Take a minute to write to international trade minister Mary Ng and foreign minister Fran├žois-Philippe Champagne and all Canadian MPs to tell them Canada should stop opposing the "Waiver from Certain Provisions of the TRIPS Agreement for the Prevention, Containment and Treatment of COVID-19".

While there is a growing movement afoot to block the Liberals' fighter jet purchase, it will require significant mobilization to overcome the powerful forces seeking cutting edge new warplanes.

Trudeau lobbies Biden to maintain climate-destroying Trump policy Trudeau government's immediate reaction to US voters rejecting Trump was to press the president-elect to break a direct promise and maintain the worst of the Donald.
