Election Day coming up. How will you vote?

TORONTO – I voted in the advance polls. Like many readers of the Corriere Canadese, I have been taken aback by the riding profiles offered daily by Priscilla Pajdo in our pages. No other publication has been providing their readers with as extensive and detailed a picture of any constituency as her pieces have. She has focused on districts where 9% or more of the population are of Italian origin.  (more…)

Effect of debates: liberals catch up the lost ground

TORONTO – With the televised debates Erin O’Toole had the chance to close the game, but evidently was not able to take advantage of the opportunity. This is the key to reading that derives from the analysis of all the polls carried out in Canada in September, which highlight how in the first week of this month the Conservatives had consolidated a good margin of advantage over the Liberals, but how, at the same time, after the double confrontation between the leaders of the parties this advantage has been dissipated. At this moment, after a phase of substantial statistical parity between the Conservative Party and the Liberal Party, it is Justin Trudeau who has returned to play the role of front runner in view of the vote on September 20.  (more…)

Ndp e Ppc frenano le ambizioni di O’Toole

TORONTO – Le difficoltà di Jagmeet Singh e l’ascesa di Maxime Bernier frenano Erin O’Toole. E, per effetto dell’inerzia che si è venuta a creare, a sorridere è Justin Trudeau, che rilancia le proprie ambizioni per la conquista del terzo mandato dopo quelli scaturiti dal voto del 2015 e del 2019. A fornirci il cambiamento dei rapporti di forza in questa corsa al voto federale è l’istantanea scattata dagli ultimi sondaggi che mette in luce come tra il Partito Liberale e il Partito Conservatore continui ad esserci un serrato testa a testa sul quale, però, pesa enormemente quanto sta avvenendo a destra e a sinistra nell’arco partitico canadese… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>

Usare i bambini per falsa discriminazione contro i fiduciari studenteschi

TORONTO – Ecco un punto di discussione: i diritti e le garanzie costituzionali rimangono validi se qualcuno è “offeso” dalla loro esistenza? Alcuni “personaggi” sono offesi dal fatto che i cattolici abbiano diritti confessionali garantiti dal Constitution Act, 1982 (ex British North America Act, 1867), ri-applicati dalla Carta dei Diritti e sostenuti dal Codice dei Diritti Umani. In particolare, hanno diritto alle proprie scuole, dove i loro valori culturali/religiosi devono essere insegnati e dove devono prevalere… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>> ***This project is made possible in part thanks to the financial support of Canadian Heritage;
