Did the Canada-Europe trade just get torpedoed by an obscure region of Belgium? Wallonia is being blamed by Canada’s Minister on International Trade for making agreement on the CETA deal impossible. With the Conservatives throwing mad shade, what will the Liberals do on the trade file?

The Liberals face criticism over cash-for-access meetings and young workers literally turn their back on Trudeau. Finally, the Green Party of BC is attracting some talent in New Westminster.
