Or white to white for that matter. You Americans used Magna Carta as the foundation on which your constitution was founded. But do we ever get credit for it? :D

The Americans also relied on the Iroquois Constitution for their own constitution.

Andrew Scheer to resign as Conservative leader, mainly as he failed to defeat Trudeau , but icing on the cake appeared he used party funds to pay for his kids education. No laws broken, but it will not resonate with party supporters.

If the parties are going to give their leaders a top up, they should not be surprised how it gets spent. Education is a lot better than a luxury yaght or some other extravagance. Still, if he doesnt have the fire to persist, then he should step down. I hope to see him in cabinet in a couple of years

Moot now. He's leaving. A senior Tory official fell on his sword. The focus will be on the leadership race and then the new leader unless Justin! steps on his reproductive equipment in a major way.

Japanese hip hop culture enthusiasts who have been called out for cultural appropriation would certainly be surprised to hear that the term is only applicable from non-whites to whites.

a message was sent out by telephone in Ontario:

 

 

 

"This is a Province of Ontario emergency bulletin which applies to people within ten (10) kilometres of the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station. An incident was reported at the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station. There has been NO abnormal release of radioactivity from the station and emergency staff are responding to the situation. People near the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station DO NOT need to take any protective actions at this time. Remain tuned to local media for further information and instructions."
