This is very newsworthy for Canadians. Mike Roman, a MAGA Republican, who works under Stephen Harper as assistant chairman for the IDU RW organization was indicted yesterday in Georgia along with Trump and 17 others. This man also assisted Andrew Scheer in his 2019 campaign!!!

This is no surprise.

The Conservatives have taken lessons from the US right wing for years, hence things like trying to disenfranchise voters, the Pierre Poutine fiasco, ignoring science, and on and on.

Don’t you mean mean “defence” spending?

I think she was being polite for the benefit of the easily confused Americans on the board and she still managed a "gotcha" with you in spite of using the American spelling. LOL.

USA and Canada don't spell all words the same way as each other. Some words are traditional British spelling and some words are changed to the American way of spelling. In Canada defense (American) and defence (British) both mean the same thing and are both accepted in Canada except in a children's elementary schoolroom.

Interesting opinion piece in the Globe & Mail today, entitled “China is on a relentless mission to control Canada’s Arctic waters.” Unfortunately it is behind a paywall.

We really need to beef up our Arctic security.

On this day, 27 Aug 1927, Emily Murphy, Nellie McClung, Henrietta Muir Edwards, Louise McKinney and Irene Parlby sign a letter to the government of Canada. It starts the “Persons case” that decides whether a woman counted as a person.

The case finds women are ‘persons’, and leads to women being appointed to the Canadian Senate.

Insane that less than 100 years ago, woman had to advocate that they are considered 'persons'

This is pretty awesome!

Basketball is definitely becoming a growing sport in Canada. I'd like to think the Raptors winning in 2019 is a part of it inspiring players and people across the country. For me, anytime young people get more involved in sports it is a great thing!

Congrats to the Canadian team on a job well done and doing what wasn't even thinkable even a decade ago.

How many of those players are Canadian natives?
