Facing possible expulsion from the U.S., many former DREAMers could qualify to come to Canada, Trudeau told
Many of the so-called DREAMers, some 700,000 young immigrants facing potential expulsion under U.S. President Donald Trump, would qualify to immigrate to Canada, according to a briefing note obtained by the Star.

Ontario premier Doug Ford may scrap electric vehicle rebates
New premier Doug Ford has stated that he will cancel Ontario’s cap-and-trade program. His government already cancelled the smart thermostat rebate that was part of the Green Energy Fund, so it seems like likely the government will cancel other green energy rebates, as well. Ontario was one of the few provinces to have an Electric and Hydrogen Vehicle Incentive Program (EHVIP). Under the Liberal government, the province offered a handful of rebates on things that promoted green energy, like insulation, smart thermostats and cars.

How to smile through the decline and fall of Canada
I’m often asked whether political and legal developments in Canada get me down. And my honest answer is that they rarely do. I’m often amazed and encouraged by the impact we can still have when we seize the freedom God has given us and take action.
But I admit that last Friday’s Supreme Court of Canada TWU decision really hurts. It is a game-changer. I don’t think most Canadians realize just how profound an impact it will likely have on our most fundamental freedoms.
