TheStar Star columnist Angelo Persichilli to join PMO I've always thought I was reading conservative spin when reading Angelo Persichilli's columns over the years. His analysis always reserved the most scrutiny and hostility for Liberal subjects. Show More Summary
Today, the country said goodbye to a great leader and hero. Thanks to Jack for everything he did for our country, for the issues he championed, for the battles he fought! May we try to move forward truly inspired by your great example. I'm happy to share the sublime words of Stephen Lewis, who eulogized Jack at today's funeral. Show More Summary
TheStar NDP will need growth outside its Quebec base On this issue, I'm sure I will anger many diehards in both the NDP and the Liberals. But as a post-partisan progressive (both a former card-carrying Liberal and a frequent NDP voter),...Show More Summary

Canada mourns 'courageous' Jack Layton - Politics - CBC News Let me add my voice to the chorus of sadness and praise for Jack Layton, who lost his battle with cancer today. Jack was a champion of the little guy who fought his entire adult life for a better Canada for all. Show More Summary
TheStar Ford poised to break promise of no layoffs Rob Ford is a habitual liar. Everything that comes out of his mouth is either a complete fabrication or so twisted from reality it's hardly recognizable. The city's labour takes up 48% of the annual budget? Rob Ford says it's 80%. Show More Summary
I'm overwhelmed with anger and frustration by the evils that continue to be perpetrated by right wing fanatics in this world. Innocent Labour party kids die in Norway because some right wing fanatic hates openness and his country's approach...Show More Summary

My Fellow AmericanThis group recently contacted me and asked me to post this video on my blog. It's a very well done video that makes it beautiful and vital point eloquently. I'm happy to post and share its powerful message of equality and dignity for all, including Muslim Americans and Canadians.
TheStar Sun Media ditches press council, citing issues with ‘political correctness’Now Sun Media is completely free in Ontario to continue to print fiction and make up stories without any way for the public to complain. For a media organization obsessed with accountability for everyone else, this is the height of hypocrisy. Show More Summary
TheStar: Rob Ford promises to attend Caribbean CarnivalFor my friends of colour who insist racism is still a huge problem in Toronto, I give you exhibit A: Rob Ford. With his actions today, Toronto's white trash bigot of a mayor proves that homophobia is still far more fashionable than racism. Show More Summary
It's appalling that no Canadian who isn't a card-carrying Conservative loyalist can get anywhere near this guy and give him the "boo" he deserves. The next four years under Harper are not going to be rather unpleasant.
Ontario to mandate 'LGBT support groups' in Catholic schoolsAnother excellent reason to re-elect the Ontario Liberals this October.

TheStar James: Ford turns back on gay community by shunning Pride Misguided. Small-minded. Toronto has definitely taken several steps/decades back under Rob Ford. What a dipstick of a mayor we have!
TheStar Catholic schools: Embrace the rainbow And for the record: the kids at St. Joseph’s Catholic Secondary School and all Catholic high school student trying to form the GSA are my heroes!
Cohn paints a disturbing picture of Tim Hudak's judgment on the energy and debt file. Perhaps the McGuinty Liberals stand a fighting chance this October after all!
