FIGHT BACK STRATEGY PANEL: WHO WON THE CANADIAN FEDERAL LEADERS DEBATE?

The leaders of Canada’s federal parties squared off in what was a heated final English-language debate last night. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau was on the defensive as the other five candidates attacked his government’s track record throughout the course of the two-hour back and forth. One of the most revisited themes of the night was climate change. While all the leaders exchanged jabs towards each other, arguably no one delivered a true “knock out punch” by the end of it.

To unpack it all and with just two weeks until voting day,  Libby Znaimer is joined by John Capobianco, Senior Vice President & Senior Partner, FleishmanHillard HighRoad, Karen Stintz, Former City Councillor and current CEO of Variety Village, and Charles Bird, Managing Principal of Earnscliffe Strategy Group in Toronto.


TRUMP MAKES DECISION TO PULL U.S. TROOPS OUT OF SYRIA

Libby Znaimer is joined by Bradley Polumbo, Deputy Contributors Editor & Commentary Writer at the Washington Examiner as well as Irfan Yar, a Security and Counter-terrorism analyst in the Macdonald-Laurier Institute and a graduate student of international affairs at Carleton University.
Yesterday, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that he is pulling U.S. troops out of Syria as part of his promise to withdraw America from the “endless war” across the Middle East. He says that he consulted widely, but the Pentagon says it was blindsided. It leaves America’s Kurdish allies, who did much of the heavy fighting against ISIS, open to an expected attack by Turkey. That’s why Trump is facing a backlash even from some of his staunchest Republican supporters like Senator Lindsay Graham.
