Canada Grapples With Its Own Deluge Of #MeToo Allegations

What started in October as a rallying cry to purge Hollywood of sexual predators has evolved into a global reckoning ― ousting alleged abusers from the U.S. Senate, Westminster in Great Britain and beyond.

New research suggests Rob Ford’s populist appeal could be duplicated across Canada

Ask whether populist politics could ever gain national traction in Canada and the answer is immediate: well, Rob Ford already did it in Toronto.

The now-deceased former mayor’s man-of-the-people appeal and his promises to “stop the gravy train” saw voters crown him king of Canada’s largest city in an electoral upset that many would later liken to Donald Trump’s surprise victory in the U.S.
