Some re-elected Conservative members of Parliament — along with a former leadership contender — are lining up to say others should get united behind leader Erin O'Toole, as questions swirl about whether his election performance warrants him staying in the job.
The Nova Scotia PCs have more in common with the 2015 Trudeau Liberals than the 2021 O’Toole Conservatives, given they won their election by outflanking their provincial competitors to the left on everything from climate change to health-care spending, writes columnist Max Fawcett.
If the Conservatives want to win an election in the future instead of just continuing to reminisce about the ones they won in the past, they’re going to need to put Stephen Harper and his political legacy behind them for good, says columnist Max Fawcett.
The Liberals have accused Parliament of becoming toxic to their minority agenda while the Opposition Conservatives say Canada's institutions are broken under the Trudeau government — finger-pointing that fuels growing speculation voters may soon head to the polls.
The proposed changes would basically be a return to the laws under the old Fisheries Act, which were ineffective and rarely enforced, said Mark Mattson, environmental lawyer and president of Swim Drink Fish Canada.
The federal auditor general says the government can't show that the Liberals' $188-billion infrastructure plan is meeting its lofty goals, and warns the spending may fall short of expectations without changes in oversight.
