Donald Trump and the art of the lie

Opinion|By Michael Harris
The U.S. president has encouraged Americans to play Russian roulette with their lives, and mocked opponents who have taken the virus seriously.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
Conservative politicians are notorious for talking mock-war on the deficit while in opposition, only to discover the joys of deficit spending when they get their hands on the cash.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
There is an explanation for Erin O’Toole’s ideological versatility: politics, like the Olympics, is comprised of many events.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
It may be some time before any government can talk about balancing budgets and cutting programs.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
According to people like Dr. Anthony Fauci, that second phase could be far worse than the first one that caused a shutdown of the economy. Under those circumstances, anyone running the country will be the PM of chaos.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
Since the PM admits that cabinet practised zero due diligence before handing half a billion dollars to WE Charity, and relied totally on the advice of bureaucrats, who were those bureaucrats?
Opinion|By Michael Harris
Right or not, polling shows that ethics in government simply isn't a top issue of concern for Canadians.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
Justin Trudeau and his finance minister are under parliamentary scrutiny over the WE Charity controversy and now the Queen’s representative and Trudeau’s personal choice for GG is being probed by the PM’s own department for abusing staff.

Opinion|By Michael Harris
Instead of favourable and deserved reviews based on its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, the government will be dragged before two parliamentary committees, and subjected to scrutiny from the ethics commissioner.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
The Trudeau government has made mistakes, learned, and adjusted while trying to ward off the COVID-19 pandemic. Other world leaders have stuck their heads in the sand, and their citizens have paid with their lives.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
When all the facts of this atrocity come out, including the belief by Turkish authorities that Khashoggi’s body was dissolved in acid, there won’t be much appetite for kings and princes sitting in judgment of themselves.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
Rather than a new beginning for a hopelessly outdated party, the leadership hopefuls wallowed in platitudes that Stephen Harper might have scribbled on a napkin during a long and particularly tedious plane ride.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
Unlike several U.S. states and provinces like Alberta and Quebec, Canada has chosen to play by Dr. Fauci Rules—slow and steady wins the race against the deadly virus.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
These days, all bumpy roads lead to Donald Trump. And so it is with Justin Trudeau’s latest image problem.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
What do the governments of Canada and Ontario have in common with a coalition of states from both U.S. coasts and the Midwest? They have all told Donald Trump to go to hell.?
Opinion|By Michael Harris
This is Easter weekend, COVID-19 style.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
We have had the Great Depression and the Great Recession. Are we entering the early days of the Great Reflection?
Opinion|By Michael Harris
It would be hard to come up with a more surreal or feckless strategy against COVID-19, unless you left everything up to the Christian Right in America.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
While the fight against a single, deadly virus has united the world on what can only be described as a war footing, the biggest players on the planet continue to snooze on the monumental threat of global warming.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
This president will get serious about Covid-19 only if he should become a statistic.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
The unelected Senate continues to be one of the great, unresolved problems of our democracy; it can do good work, even great work, but on its bad days, it is one of Canada’s embarrassments.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
By handling protests against the Coastal GasLink pipeline the way he has, Trudeau has brought down a double whammy on his government.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
Conservatives only seem to want to show the protesters who's boss, ignoring the long history of Indigenous rights being trampled.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
The reason Canada keeps on having confrontations with Indigenous peoples is that their prodigious patience has been worn out. They confront because they have been sold out too many times.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
Donald Trump’s values and practices have been spreading well beyond America’s borders. Everyone in the world, and especially those of us here in neighbouring Canada, will be affected by what the United States becomes.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
Canada should make clear that only negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians can arrive at final status solutions on matters such as borders, refugees, settlements, water rights, and the fate of Jerusalem.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
The former prime minister's fingerprints are all over the leading contenders to replace Andrew Scheer atop the Conservative Party.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
The bottom line? If monarchy isn’t the thing for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, if they just want to be Harry and Meghan, maybe it’s time we started thinking about whether it’s the thing for a country like Canada.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
The CPC was wrong back in 2015 and it is wrong now. Like it or lump it, it needs a policy do-over from top to bottom.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
The days of $100 oil will never be coming back. Turn out the lights, that party’s over.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
Andrew Scheer is not a leader and ought to admit it. There is no time to lose. As the old saying goes, do it before you have to do it.
Opinion|By Michael Harris
In this absurd place, and until the darkness lifts, rolling over for a tyrant is the only sin.
