We examine a new National Security Report that warns of the danger to Canada posed by America’s democratic unravelling, and consider Huawei, Ukraine and NATO group think.
This week we deplore continued Israeli legal impunity, welcome a possible national handgun ban, lament the Huawei 5 G ban, warn anew against Canada joining ballistic missile defence and applaud some solid ideas for a Ukraine peace deal.
We examine more possibilities for a negotiated settlement in Ukraine, discuss dismal prospects on the Iran nuclear deal, touch on the unnerving election results in the Philippines and end with shocking events in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
This week’s post urges our Government and Parliamentarians to practice what they preach when seeking to hold Russia to legal account. We also examine the role of a revitalized peace process in reducing nuclear risks and ending this terrible conflict.
