Conservatives 'declaring war on Canada Food Guide' like they did on long-form census, Trudeau says
Dr. Yoni Freedhoff, a professor at the University of Ottawa who specializes in obesity, said that the only explanation for Scheer's comments, which he described as "intensely stupid," is that they are meant to curry political favour.
The professional organization Dietitians of Canada tweeted that the new guide is most definitely based on science.
Canada's failed populist: A cautionary tale
The downfall of Ontario's provincial premier, Doug Ford, is a prime example of what happens when populism takes power.
Beyond the debilitating cuts to education, healthcare, libraries, child protection agencies and a panoply of other critical social and environmental policies and services, Ford's signature act of malevolence was axing a programme of publicly funded care for autistic children.

Without electoral reform, this federal election will be decided by fear
At the last moment, many voters will lose their nerve and vote not for who they want but out of fear of the 1950s’ thinking of the Conservative Party. This is the great hope of the Liberals.
The problem is: Democracy can’t work this way because the resulting Parliament, no matter what it looks like, won’t reflect people’s genuine wishes. It will represent their fears.
I Didn’t Fully Realize the Terrible Power of U.S. Border Officials
My work as a journalist has taken me to many foreign countries. On May 13, I was pulled out of line for “secondary screening."
As I was walking out, I said to Moncivias and Villarreal, “It’s funny, of all the countries I’ve been to, the border guards have never treated me worse than here, in the one country I’m a citizen of, in the town where I was born.”
“Welcome back to the USA,” Moncivias said.
Opinion: Doug Ford should cancel Highway 407 contract
Doug Ford has shown a willingness to rip up contracts with business. But why is the premier wasting time on small-fry deals like the province’s contract with the Beer Store?
Cancelling a contract would be destructive to the province’s business climate but, if Ford plans to do so, it makes more sense to cancel the 407 deal, which locks us in for almost 10 decades, compared to Wynne’s one-decade deal.
‘A propaganda machine’: How Doug Ford’s government skirts media with Ontario News Now
At first glance, ONN looks like news content.
“The problem is it blurs the partisan with the public," said Jonathan Rose, associate professor of political studies at Queen’s University. "Governments are entitled to send a partisan message, but it has to be done clearly under the party banner, and not under guise of some neutral name like Ontario News Now.”
Heartbeat predicts errors in expert pianists
Working with professional pianists and experienced piano students from London conservatoires, Dr Maria Herrojo Ruiz and colleagues found that the brain receives crucial information from the heart before an error in playing occurs.
Doug Ford — a premier ‘For the (Rich) People’
Since becoming Ontario premier last June, Ford has gone out of his way to introduce measures that overwhelmingly hurt poor and disadvantaged residents while enacting tax cuts that will save huge dollars for the rich. The evidence is overwhelming.
Jagmeet Singh’s Love & Courage: ‘I carried the shame and stigma’ of abuse
In his new memoir, Love & Courage, Singh writes about his personal life and family. Here, the Star presents an exclusive first excerpt from the book, detailing some of the racial and sexual abuse Singh was subjected to when he lived in Windsor and was in grade school.
Ontarians don’t support Doug Ford’s anti-carbon tax campaign
Over the next few weeks, millions more in taxpayer money will be spent telling Ontarians the federal carbon tax will take “a lot of nickels” out of their pockets.
In fact, eight in 10 Ontario households will get more back in carbon rebates than they pay in carbon taxes. Perhaps that’s why most Ontarians oppose Premier Ford spending taxpayer money to take away these rebates.
The Politics of Switching Parties
On September 17, 2018, Parliament’s first day back from summer break, Leona Alleslev, the Liberal MP from Aurora–Oak Ridges–Richmond Hill, rose in the House of Commons to announce her defection from the governing Liberal Party of Canada.
Whether she honestly acted in their interest or not, the fallout that ensued suggests intentions are moot. Few things are as politically isolating as crossing the floor.
