Trudeau Comfortable With Minimum Age Of 18 To Buy Legal Pot

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau thinks Canadians old enough to drink alcohol are old enough to smoke marijuana legally.

Trudeau made the point at a press conference in Ottawa Thursday, days after a federal task force on marijuana legalization recommended the national minimum age to buy recreational marijuana be set at 18. The report also suggested provinces and territories be permitted to raise the age to harmonize with alcohol consumption laws.

Exclusive: Canada’s prime minister tells the Guardian why, in a world where populism, divisiveness and fear are on the rise, he’s taking the opposite approach......



“What we’re facing right now – in terms of the rise of populism and divisive and fearful narratives around the world – it’s based around the fact that globalisation doesn’t seem to be working for the middle class, for ordinary people,” the Canadian prime minister said in an interview at his oak-panelled office in the country’s parliament. “And this is something that we identified years ago and built an entire platform and agenda for governing on.”.....

Trump populism comes to Canada as Conservatives seek leader

"There is absolutely room for a populist surprise in Canada," said pollster Frank Graves of EKOS Research. "The type of forces driving Brexit and Trump are very much at work in Canada, albeit somewhat more muted."


While much can change in the next three years before the general election, Graves, the pollster, said a Conservative victory is possible in part because Canada's economic malaise has sparked the same kind of working class resentment that helped propel Trump to victory.


Canada's economy has been hurt by a two-year slump in oil prices, weak business investment and disappointing non-energy exports. The economy contracted in October and the manufacturing sector logged its biggest decline in nearly three years.

Canadians Didn't Sign Up For Trudeau's Scandals And Bad Policies

It has been more than a year since Canadians voted in a federal election to grant Justin Trudeau a majority government, after one of the longest federal election cycles in modern Canadian history.

Trudeau's overwhelming support came from a message that revolved around "change." His campaign made a plethora of campaign promises, offering a fresh face, new ideas and the promise of transparency for the Liberal platform.

Trudeau's actions in government have not lived up to expectations, and Canadians are taking notice. A recent poll has shown the Liberal government's approval rating dropping a staggering nine points to 42 per cent, from a November poll which had Liberal support at 51 per cent.

Ethics watchdog investigating Canadian PM's vacation

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) -- Canada's ethics commissioner said Monday she is launching an investigation into Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's recent family holiday at the Aga Khan's private island in the Bahamas.

Ethics commissioner Mary Dawson said Trudeau may have violated the federal ethics code during his holiday with the Aga Khan, a family friend, philanthropist and hereditary spiritual leader to the world's approximately 15 million Ismaili Muslims. It's the first time the ethics commissioner has opted to investigate the actions of a sitting prime minister.

Harper: Trump Set To Reverse '7 Decades Of American Foreign Policy'

The Liberal government says it is seeking common ground with the Trump administration on promoting middle-class growth, but Harper said friends and allies of the U.S. — he did not mention Canada by name — will have to bring "real assets" to the table.

Harper called Trump "a candidate without precedent in American history."

He said Trump rejects "that America alone must accept overarching responsibility for global affairs," and he says that's a notion that's in step with the views of the American public.

Harper said many in the world may not like this foreign policy shift, which will focus on "America's vital national interest, narrowly defined, especially its economic interests."

"It will work with friends and allies on shared interests, but only when such friends and allies are prepared to bring real assets to the table. That, by the way, is going to apply first and foremost to Europe."

Harper: Trump Set To Reverse '7 Decades Of American Foreign Policy'


When I see the name Harper, this is whom I think of (sayer of that immortal movie line, "Pile out you Trumps...")




In the meantime, Australia is working to salvage the TPP, which would have dire consequences for American trade. (You can bet that we will be part of it, in some form, though Trump will call it something else.)


"AUSTRALIA is working to recast the Trans-Pacific Partnership without the United States and open the door for China to sign up after President Donald Trump ditched the huge trade pact. The deal included a dozen Asia-Pacific nations which together account for 40 per cent of the global economy. But Trump declared on Monday he had “terminated” it in line with election pledges to scrap the “job killer” pact."
