Assad’s Pyrrhic Victory: What the Fall of Aleppo Means for Syria

The Fall of Aleppo The recapture Syria’s second city by Syrian forces now seems all but inevitable. The Syrian army, along with Russian airpower and regional allies have managed to take control of large swathes of the city’s Rebel-held eastern-half. Russian involvement in the operation, which has proven to be decisive, is fueled by Russia’s ambition to keep Bashar al-Assad in power. Russia’s clear strategy stands in stark contrast to the rest of the international community, who have been scrambling for years trying to cope with the Syrian conflict and its various ramifications.

Fentanyl – Are We Asking the Right Questions?

Much like heroin in the 1960s, Fentanyl is ripping through Surrey and Vancouver’s East side, leaving law makers, emergency responders, and police in a highly reactive state. Makeshift safe injection sites, bicycling first responders, and millions of dollars in government funding are just a few of the ways this province has worked to deal with the crisis. Recently the RCMP announced a deal with Chinese authorities to help halt the flow of fentanyl into Canadian ports. I feel that the bulk of the media coverage, so far, has missed on two key questions. Who is Doing Fentanyl? Conversations with...

What Does Fidel Castro’s Death Mean for Canada

Fidel Castro, one of the 20th century’s most influential and divisive figures, passed away today. At 90 years old, the passionate left-wing revolutionary stood in defiance of what he viewed as American imperialism. His iron grip on the island nation ensured his government’s survival decades after the collapse of the Soviet Union. While his legacy will continue to be a matter of debate for years to come, his death may have very real implications for Canadian-Cuban economic and political relations. Trudeaus and Castros Castro’s death occurred less than two weeks after Justin Trudeau concluded a historic visit to Cuba....

There are a handful of things that Canadians can look forward to from a Trump presidency (If you are American you can stop reading now, because the next four years will not go well for you). Cheaper American Imports The American markets took a massive tumble upon discovering that the world was going to wake up to a Trump presidency.

What Justin Trudeau Must Do

In my lifetime I have really only known two Prime Ministers: Jean Chretien and Stephen Harper. With that in mind, it is easy to understand why many believe that Justin Trudeau represents a seismic shift in what it means to be Prime Minister (substantively and aesthetically). Whether you voted for him or not, all would agree that there is palpable excitement surrounding what the future holds. Canadians, for the first time in a decade, are excited about being Canadian. I suspect this to be true even for Conservative supporters, who in their heart-of-hearts would not describe the outgoing Prime...
