The New Zealand government posted the official Trans Pacific Partnership text today after years secret negotiations and occasional leaks of the text. It is an enormous deal with dozens of side letters between countries - Canada alone has eight side letters on intellectual property with seven TPP countries - that will require considerable study. From a copyright perspective, the TPP IP chapter leaked soon after the deal was concluded and the ch...

To me, one story will always sum up Pierre Trudeau [Justin's father and former Canadian PM].

1979. Trudeau had lost that year’s election. His career seemed finished. Reporters awaited in the driveway of 24 Sussex Drive as he stepped into his gull-winged vintage Mercedes to speed away into history.

One shouted: “Mr. Prime Minister – any regrets?”

Pierre Trudeau pondered. He remembered something that Richard Nixon had said after losing the California governor’s race in 1962 and revised Nixon’s words to his own very different purpose. “Yes,” he said. “I regret I won’t have you to kick around any more.”
Written by Harry Khachatrian After a long and arduous decade of economic stability, low taxes, falling inflation rates and strong principled leadership, leftist Canadians decided they want change.
