Some advice for party leaders in much-anticipated fall session

Opinion|By Tim Powers
The return of Parliament will likely provide us brief moments of escape from our pandemic prison. Unfortunately, though the virus’ outbreak will continue to dominate everything.

Since the Kielburgers announced their decision to shutter WE Charity's Canadian operations, a game of blame and brand protection has broken out.

Teachers and early childhood educators are the new front line in this COVID-19 conflict.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
If the return to school is a mighty mess and wave two of the virus hits with force in the fall, the Liberals might get a mighty smack in the chops from a tired, angry, disheartened public.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
Erin O'Toole won't have much time to enjoy the win. Being the leader of the Conservative Party is difficult at the best of times, but much more precarious when in opposition.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
The fable of Morneau and the beginning of the Liberals’ rebrand is now upon us. Flip on some Sister Sledge and let us all sing the chorus of We Are Family.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
My goal most days is to limit moments of anxiety and find some good in the circumstances, because there are positives to be had.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
Furey’s greatest challenge will not be enthusiasm or passion, but rather the provincial political system that has rarely rewarded disruption and provides benefits for ward keepers who do not shake things up.

While the finance minister and the prime minister have apologized for their mistakes, those acts of contrition do not seem enough for the circumstances.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
The bigger challenge for the Trudeau government and the provinces on the sports front is not going to have been saying ‘no’ to baseball and ‘yes’ to hockey—it is the state of our national sports structure.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
Managing reopening the wrong way could also stoke some nasty regionalism and inflame discontent. We all have a role to play in making sure that is not the case.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
For the benefit of the organization they both hope to lead, addressing the accusation of campaign hacking internally and co-operatively would have seemingly been a better approach for the party.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
We have to guard against punishing all police for the actions of the criminal element among some of them.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer and his team are not going to win any new support for the Conservative Party by spending time parsing the appropriateness of Trudeau attending a public march, even in a pandemic.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
If George Floyd or all the other Black people who have been brutally killed have children, I would want the same for their kids—safe places and spaces to live free of the horrors their daily lives often resemble now.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
Taking CEWS is not the great equalizer for Canada’s federal political parties—it does not make them like the rest of us or preserve their place as key Canadian institutions.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
Hopefully, with three months to go before the new leader of the Conservative Party is chosen, the campaigns will get a bit more adventurous and maybe even discuss some of the big ideas the party needs to embrace.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
Who would have guessed that during the COVID-19 crisis we would have seen Trudeau and Ford sharing similar patterns of behaviour? I guess that is what you call the new normal.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
Just as leaders were judged on how effectively they contained the outbreak, they have the potential to be cruelly assessed on how they bring us back from it. It is an unenviable spot to be in.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
Tiresome is not the exclusive preserve of Conservative MP Derek Sloan, it is also time for the government to shake things up, specifically, can we bring an end to the daily prime ministerial sessions on COVID 19?
Opinion|By Tim Powers
Despite legitimate arguments and successes in advancing an accountability agenda, the Conservatives' efforts over the past week came across mostly as shallow.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
As our leaders have been prone to say often, we are all in this together. Let there be no hidden suffering.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
While Canadian officials were working behind the scenes to ensure Canada's supply of 3M masks, some of Canada’s premiers stepped up to the cameras to launch the moral-suasion offensive.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
Hopefully, the pause in the campaign will allow the candidates to come back with a focused pitch, not to just to Conservatives, but to Canadians in the tough new world we find ourselves in.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
It isn’t politics as usual, and the Conservatives risk looking tone deaf and self-interested if they march on here.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
Part of all of us will feel a bit empty because she is not around. If she knew that, she’d tell us all to get the ‘F’ on with it.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
Appealing to your base today has merit. But to telegraph your plans for six months from now, when a very different set of political circumstances will prevail, is not the best strategy.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
We are at a time in Canada where we need political maturity more than ever. If we want to address so many of Canada’s opportunities and challenges, we are all going to have to up our game.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
While the Liberals sort out their leadership, the Progressive Conservative Party of Newfoundland and Labrador is not beyond its own political theatrics.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
In circumstances like these, where it is easy to aspire to be fully on side with educators, the reality of these job actions is that they have a disruptive personal impact on people.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
The longer Conservatives rail on about the 'Trudeau carbon tax,' the more it makes them appear incapable of doing something economically beneficial and environmentally responsible to address climate change.
Opinion|By Tim Powers
Even the most hardened egoists or masochists find it harder to see reward in political life. It is almost as if politics has become a virtual-reality version of video games like Mortal Kombat.
