Ontario and Quebec, infections in decline: less than six hundred a day

TORONTO  – After the sleepy long weekend of the second “pandemic” Labor Day in its history, Ontario wakes up with good news: infections have dropped, at least in the last two days. 581 on Monday and 564 today, against 811 on Sunday, 944 on Saturday and 807 on Friday. The seven-day moving average therefore stops at 746 (yesterday it was 757). It is true that fewer tests were carried out: 19,200 swabs performed on Monday and 17,118 those on Tuesday, against 22,410 on Sunday when 811 cases were recorded. The positivity rate therefore rises to 3.5% (average percentage of the two days) against 2.9% three days ago.  (more…)

Saint-Léonard – Saint-Michel: A Liberal secure riding


The electoral district of Saint-Léonard – Saint-Michel, formerly Saint-Léonard, is located in the City of Montreal, east of the constituency of Bourassa. With a population of 113,210 residents, it is home to a number of culturally diverse ethnic groups.

It’s countdown for the two debates, Ontario will be decisive

TORONTO – It’s countdown to the two televised debates between the leaders of federal parties. A double appointment, that of tomorrow evening in French and on Friday in English, considered as the real key moment of the electoral campaign in view of the appointment at the polls on September 20th. The prime minister candidates approach the two debates with different moods and objectives, based on what happened in the three weeks of the electoral campaign and, above all, taking into account the polls that over the last month have recorded a profound change in the balance of power between the parties in the race.

Election Campaigning: things could get worse before they get better

TORONTO – I feel sorry for Trudeau. Nothing in his campaign seems to resonate with the general public. Every step his campaign designs instead appears counter-intuitive and “testy”. In fact, fewer and fewer people are willing to “cut him any slack”. It seems only yesterday that the easy solution to the country’s ills was a simple selfie of the Liberal leader. Today, polls are laying bare some acrimonious discontent. Some of it merciless. From Surrey to Cambridge to New Brunswick to Bolton to London, disparate crowds hound the Liberal Leader, hurling their profanities, their churlish rudeness and stones. Many among the protesters are women, giving a newer meaning to the term the “gentler sex”.  (more…)

Afghanistan, the new Islamic government: among the ministers a ‘wanted’ from the FBI. Italy: “We will return to Kabul”

KABUL – Italy and Afghanistan: faraway, so close.

Nota diplomatica: Zucchero diabolico

Lo zucchero, come tutti i piaceri “facili”, è sempre stato guardato con sospetto. La sua elevazione a demone dietetico assoluto è però relativamente recente, un fenomeno di questo millennio. L’attenzione e i timori alla fine del secolo scorso erano invece orientati sui “grassi”: saturi, insaturi, polinsaturi e così via. Non se ne parla più tanto, anche se la parola indefinibile “lite” (“light” per i puristi) è rimasta nel linguaggio del marketing alimentare in ricordo dell’epoca… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>

Quebec, campo di battaglia tra partiti politici

TORONTO – Simile alla situazione in Ontario, i distretti chiave nella provincia del Quebec si preannunciano come un campo di battaglia tra i partiti politici. La differenza nella provincia francofona è il Bloc Québécois (BQ), un partito politico dedicato alla promozione della sovranità del Quebec. Dopo lo scioglimento del Parlamento, i liberali detenevano 35 seggi in Quebec, rispetto ai 32 del BQ. Giorni dopo il primo dibattito in lingua francese e in vista dei dibattiti di questa settimana sia in francese che in inglese, sembra che un’altra vittoria per i liberali potrebbe essere assicurata nel distretto elettorale di Alfred-Pellan… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>

Il vuoto elettorale: discussioni serie assenti

TORONTO – Le campagne elettorali sono sempre piene di sorprese. Si sarebbe tentati di pensare che si tratti di questioni che ruotano attorno a COME uomini e donne impegnati in politica darebbero forma al nostro futuro. Cerco di prestare attenzione perché’ ancora sotto l’influenza di una nostalgia romantica per un processo democratico che non è mai stato, immagino, o perché sono totalmente ingenuo… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>

Conservatori in fuga, il dibattito in Quebec non cambia gli equilibri

TORONTO – Il dibattito in Quebec dello scorso 2 settembre tra i leader non ha spostato i rapporti di forza tra i partiti. La conferma arriva dagli ultimi 8 sondaggi realizzati dopo il dibattito in francese che mettono in luce come il Partito Conservatore guidato da Erin O’Toole continui a godere di un confortante margine di vantaggio rispetto ai liberali di Justin Trudeau… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>

TCDSB, custode arrestato per violenza sessuale

TORONTO – Non è così che Brendan Browne, direttore dell’istruzione pubblica presso il Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB), avrebbe voluto terminare l’estate e inaugurare un nuovo anno scolastico. Il Toronto Police Services (TPS) il 1 ° settembre ha rilasciato un comunicato stampa per informare il pubblico che aveva effettuato un arresto in un’indagine per violenza sessuale.
