Canada: people trudge, the Prime Minister takes luxury vacations

TORONTO – Ordinary Canadians struggle to make ends meet, amid skyrocketing prices, impossible rents, inflation and interest rates at the highest levels. And what does the Prime Minister do? “Set an example”, spending about 160,000 public dollars – between security and costs of personnel who have to move in the event of a trip by a PM – for a week-long family vacation in Jamaica during the winter, in a luxurious estate (“Prospect Villas”) belonging to a wealthy family friend, Peter Green, who two years ago also made a substantial donation to the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation.

Chinese interference, Poilievre: “What does the prime minister have to hide?”

TORONTO – The Liberal government’s inaction over (alleged) electoral meddling by China has some Canadian voters now wondering whether the results of the recent federal election can be trusted. That’s what Pierre Poilievre thinks: according to the leader of the Conservatives, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has “inspired many suspicions” due to his refusal to answer detailed questions about China’s role in the 2019 and 2021 electoral campaigns.  (more…)

She is Giorgia: from “the people’s daughter” to prime minister in pectore

ROME – Her political history begins thirty years ago in a Roman section of the Fronte della Gioventù (the Youth Front of the far-right party MSI) where she arrives and, simply, knocks on the door. It is 1992 and she, Giorgia Meloni, is 15 years old and attends the linguistic school “Amerigo Vespucci”. She does not come from any “lineage” of the Roman right but, like so many of the ones who embraced political militancy in those years, she comes from a particular family situation: her mother, Anna, is separated, and also has another daughter (Arianna), and she does the most varied jobs to get by. All three live in a 45 square meter two-room apartment, a spartan home, without a sofa and with a single table where they can do their homework, eat and rest their elbows to watch TV. Giorgia and Arianna sleep on a mobile bed, “one for the head and one for the feet”, located in the corridor.  (more…)

Papa Francesco a luglio sarà in Canada: le prime anticipazioni su dove andrà

TORONTO – Edmonton, Quebec City e Iqaluit. Sono queste le tre tappe del viaggio di Papa Francesco in Canada in programma a fine luglio. A dirlo a CBC News sono fonti non autorizzate a parlare pubblicamente. Del resto lo stesso Papa, nell’udienza finale concessa in Vaticano ai gruppi di nativi americani il 1º aprile, aveva lasciato intendere che intorno ai giorni di Sant’Anna, che si celebra il 26 luglio, sarebbe arrivato in Canada per visitare i nativi americani nei loro territori e chiedere perdono per le azioni dei membri della Chiesa cattolica romana nelle scuole residenziali… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>

Mississauga tra le prime dieci città universitarie del Canada

TORONTO – Quando si tratta di perseguire l’istruzione post-secondaria, in genere, la maggior parte delle persone si concentra sulle università. Tuttavia, anche la vita del campus e il mondo che la caratterizza influiscono nella scelta di una persona nel suo percorso di istruzione post-secondaria. Per molti, può anche significare trasferirsi in una nuova città o paese. Tenendo questo presente occorre dire che Mississauga è una delle prime dieci città universitarie del Canada… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>

Tassa per i no vax, è boom di prime dosi in Quebec

MONTREAL – No vax va bene, fino a quando non mi toccano il portafoglio. È un vero e proprio boom di prime dosi di vaccino in Quebec a due giorni di distanza dall’annuncio del premier Francois Legault sull’intenzione del governo provinciale di imporre una sanzione pecuniaria sotto forma di “tassa sanitaria” per i maggiorenni quebecchesi che non si vaccinano e non sono in possesso di una valida esenzione medica. Una decisione, quella dell’esecutivo della provincia francofona, dettata dalle gravi difficoltà che sta vivendo il sistema sanitario sotto il peso della variante Omicron… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>

Prime Retail for Lease

On a stretch of 1.9 kms, sandwiched between Yonge Street and the Royal Ontario Museum, lies the posh district of Bloor Street where the rich buy their Louis Vuittons and Hermes. These days of the pandemic, 17 stores or boutiques are closed, 8 of which have the sign “prime retail for lease” stuck to their windows. Never in my Canadian life, since I first set foot here in 1974, has there been that many vacancies, until now. While I can’t remember which boutiques ceased operating in Bloor, one store stood out for me — the Gap which is not even high-end but had 3 levels of shopping space which I would visit when I needed new shirts or items for Christmas gifts.
