Will not halt illegal border crossing despite opposition – Canada PM

Canada will continue to accept asylum seekers crossing illegally from the United States but will ensure security measures are taken to keep Canadians safe, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Tuesday.

The number of would-be refugees crossing into Canada at isolated and unguarded border crossings has increased in recent weeks amid fears that U.S. President Donald Trump will crack down on illegal immigrants, and photos of smiling Canadian police greeting the migrants have gone viral.


Curry: Computer Predictions Of Climate Alarm Are Flawed

“It’s not just the fact that climate simulations are tuned that is problematic. It may well be that it is impossible to make long-term predictions about the climate – it’s a chaotic system after all. If that’s the case, then we are probably trying to redesign the global economy for nothing”.

Liberal government ‘testing the limits’ of Canadians’ attitudes to refugees: poll

A majority of Canadians generally approve of the Liberal government’s approach to refugees, but Ottawa may be “testing the limits” of how many migrants they are willing to accept, a new poll shows.

While 47 per cent of respondents believe Canada is taking in “about the right number” of refugees, 41 per cent said the number is “already too high,” according to the survey by the non-profit Angus Reid Institute. Eleven per cent said they’d like to see Canada open its doors to even more refugees.

No Boys Allowed: The New Rule of Co-Working Spaces

It’s 11 a.m. on a recent Friday, and 29-year-old Audrey Gelman—public-relations powerhouse, former Hillary Clinton press aide, longtime friend of Lena Dunham’s—is sitting on a pink couch at the Wing, the co-working space and social club she co-founded this October in New York. A man walks through the elevator doors, and Gelman throws him a friendly wave. “That’s our AV guy,” she says. “He’s basically the only man that comes through here.”

That’s because the Wing—so-named because, like the wing of a house, it’s a separate space—is just for women.
