  • Canada should align with Russia to fight ISIS in Syria, ambassador says

    The Russian ambassador to Canada is defending his country's new combat role in the Syrian civil war and is asking Ottawa to join its coalition in the fight against ISIS. Alexander Darchiev said that Canada's participation in the U.S.-led coalition airstrikes — which began more than a year ago — has been a failed mission with few tangible results. "This undertaking, unfortunately, has proved ineffective and incapable [of stopping] ISIS, so, we truly believe that what we really need in Syria is a co-operative effort, because the terrorists do not distinguish between Russians, Americans or Canadians, they all consider us to be targets," Darchiev said in an interview with Rosemary Barton on CBC's Power & Politics.

  • Fifty years in Canada, and now I feel like a second-class citizen

    “Too broken to write,” I told my editor, after the onslaught of Conservative announcements. The niqab was condemned. Citizenship was revoked for convicted terrorists with dual citizenship. Canadians were reminded of “barbaric cultural practices,” and the federal government’s preference for mainly non-Muslim Syrian refugees was reiterated. Make no mistake: This divisive strategy is meant to prey upon fear and prejudice. Last May, I wrote that Canadian Muslims “are the low-hanging fruit in the politics of fear. Omar Khadr is exhibit A; Zunera Ishaq is exhibit B. With an October election, it won’t be surprising to see political machinations at our expense.” Yet the sheer brazenness of the Conservatives
