Anti-establishment sentiment is surging to a record high—the question now is who will capture and channel it. Believe Canada is immune to Trump-like conservatism? That the country could never be swept by a right-wing populist scapegoating the vulnerable, promising to bring back jobs, and beating the drum of law-and-order? Think again. The conditions for such an eruption are on stark display. A poll released this week reveals a stunning lack of trust in government among Canadians—and a dramatic drop since Justin Trudeau came to power. No less than 80 percent think the Canadian elite are “out of touch” with ordinary people. 60 percent believe mainstream politicians wont solve our problems. As in the rest of the world, it is no different here: anti-establishment and populist sentiment is surging like never before. Continue reading...

Combined collapses may compound the impact on predators and the fishery, scientists say. The finding runs counter to suggestions that the two species' cycles alternate. Sardine and anchovy have at times been the most heavily harvested fish off Southern California in terms of volume. Hake, also known as Pacific whiting, spawn off California but are harvested in large volumes off the Pacific Northwest and Canada. The findings conclude that forage fish are well-suited to variable fishing rates that target the species in times of abundance, while recognizing that mean persistence of fishable populations is one to two decades, and that switching to other target species will become a necessity. Collapses last, on average, too long for the industry to simply wait out the return of the forage fish. Well-designed reserve thresholds and adjustable harvest rates help protect the forage species, the fishery, and nonhuman predators for the long term—but only protect the seed stock for recovery, and cannot prevent collapses from occurring.

The letter reads: Under ICS, big business can still sue for changes made to the regulatory environment that breach a company’s ‘legitimate expectations’, resulting in taxpayerseffectively providing risk insurance for North American big business. Any government’s ‘right to regulate’ will be determined by a ‘necessity test’, while investment is still defined in such a way (“the expectation of gain or profit”) that companies will be able to sue for future lost profits. It echoes criticism made by trade unions in both Europe and Canada, who have also previously expressed concern over the lack of “enforceability of labour rights” and voiced opposition to the ICS. Corporate capture The main purpose of CETA isnt tariff elimination, which is at an all time low, its regulatory cooperation. But this process, which does not require a mandate from the European Parliament or have transparent measures, could be hijacked by big business lobbyists set on weakening standards, just as it was in the US-Canada trade deal NAFTA.

The EU is very ambitious about the deal, calling it Europe's most modern ever, and saying it will become a template for later deals, including with post-Brexit Britain. CETA will remove 99 percent of customs duties between the two sides, a big win for European exporters. And unlike classic trade deals, CETA also attempts to harmonise regulations on matters such as health and the environment. A flashpoint for opponents is the proposal to set up special courts to settle disputes between investors and national authorities that is central to the deal. Opponents believe this provision hands too much power to multinationals that will use powerful lawyers to undermine national regulation. "Multinationals will be able to attack governments in a privatised court system," said France's far-right presidential candidate and MEP Marine Le Pen, who will vote against CETA.

This is what he said. PRIME MINISTER JUSTIN TRUDEAU : In both the conversations I’ve had with President Trump now, Keystone XL came up as a topic, and I reiterated my support for the project. I’ve been on the record for many years supporting it, because it leads to economic growth and good jobs for Albertans. ... This is about the responsible approach on growing the economy, creating good jobs for Canadians, while we protect the environment for now and for future generations. This is what Canadians expect of us. JUAN GONZÁLEZ: What about this comment, especially in view of the fact that many people expected, with his election, that he would bring a much more forward-thinking administration in Canada after years of conservative leadership there? CLAYTON THOMAS MULLER : Look, Canadians expect Justin Trudeau to be a hero. On the election trail, Justin Trudeau committed to ratifying the U.
