Sri Lanka‘s parliament descended into chaos for a second day on Friday as lawmakers supporting newly appointed Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa threw books, chili paste and water bottles at the Speaker to try to disrupt a second no-confidence motion.
At least the West hasn’t descended to this. Yet.
Trebek, 78, is a Canadian-American who was born in Ontario. A host of the popular game show Jeopardy, he’s become a familiar face with millions of viewers.
His popularity in the entertainment industry landed him a visit with Justin Trudeau. Trebek however, picked up on a variety of clues that he used to construct a hypothesis about the Canadian Prime Minister, according to the National Post reports.
French President Emmanuel Macron referred to nationalism as a “betrayal of patriotism” in pointed Armistice Day remarks that many consider to have been specifically directed at US President Donald Trump’s ‘America First’ policies, according to several reports.
What’s next for Canada-U.S. relations in the wake of the recent U.S. midterm elections? Is the coverage of American politics taking up too much airtime in Canada? How can the media fight against the moniker of “fake news”? Are there more surprises to come with the USMCA trade agreement? Which funny socks is Trudeau wearing today?
The official celebration of the new USMCA trade agreement may be a far more low-key affair than anyone imagined.

An attentive parent saw the picture of what the Home Office has (seriously) ranked as a 15-year-old refugee from Iran.
It is the result of Canada being tough at the negotiation table, united at home, and getting the job done.
Did you know that it was the EU which defeated both German Naziism and Soviet Communism? No? Well then I think you should thank President of the European Parliament – Italian (IMHO) cretin Antonio Tajani – for helping us all better understand history. In a speech yesterday to the toothless, corrupt, pointless, misnamed ‘European Parliament’, that historical expert – (IMHO) braindead, Europhiliac, waste of skin Tajani – claimed that it was the EU which defeated both Naziism and Communism.
U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill’s campaign is demanding Attorney General Josh Hawley open a fraud investigation into hidden-camera videos released this week by a nonprofit run by conservative activist James O’Keefe.
