Foreign election interference a reality, says Trudeau after Putin re-electionPrime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada needs to be vigilant about protecting the integrity of its electoral systems from foreign interference.

NAFTA: U.S. says auto irritant nearly solved, other snags remain

NAFTA: U.S. says auto irritant nearly solved, other snags remainThe United States has confirmed a breakthrough in the NAFTA negotiations unlocking a major irritant involving automobiles, while stressing that a few remaining disagreements need to be settled before a deal is concluded.

"We're finally starting to converge," Robert Lighthizer said, while delivering a progress report to the U.S. Congress.

Duclos defends gender-neutral language amid criticism from opposition

Duclos defends gender-neutral language amid criticism from oppositionCanadian activists praised Service Canada's decision to ask its employees to adopt gender-neutral language when interacting with the public as a step toward greater inclusivity, while members of the political opposition mocked the policy mercilessly.

No all-party consensus on independent election debate commissionerThere'll be no all-party consensus on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's promise to create an independent commissioner to organize televised leaders' debates during federal election campaigns. Conservatives are flatly refusing to go along with the idea, which they say amounts to "de facto nationalization" of the debates, where the state decides how and when they're held and which leaders are invited to participate. Small parties have gone to court in the past over their exclusion, but because the debates have always been run by private broadcasters through negotiations with political parties, they were not subject to a constitutional challenge.
