Sen. Bernie Sanders says he’s running for president in 2020

[ad_1]

WASHINGTON – Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, whose insurgent 2016 presidential campaign reshaped Democratic politics, announced Tuesday that he is running for president in 2020.

“Our campaign is not only about defeating Donald Trump,” the 77-year-old self-described democratic socialist said in an email to supporters. “Our campaign is about transforming our country and creating a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice.”

An enthusiastic progressive who embraces proposals ranging from Medicare for All to free college tuition, Sanders stunned the Democratic establishment in 2016 with his spirited challenge to Hillary Clinton. While she ultimately became the party’s nominee, his campaign helped lay the groundwork for the leftward lurch that has dominated Democratic politics in the Trump era.

The question now for Sanders is whether he can stand out in a crowded field of Democratic presidential candidates who also embrace many of his policy ideas and are newer to the national political stage. That’s far different from 2016, when he was Clinton’s lone progressive adversary.

Still, there is no question that Sanders will be a formidable contender for the Democratic nomination. He won more than 13 million votes in 2016 and dozens of primaries and caucuses. He opens his campaign with a nationwide organization and a proven small-dollar fundraising effort.

“We’re gonna win,” Sanders told CBS.

He said he was going to launch “what I think is unprecedented in modern American history”: a grassroots movement “to lay the groundwork for transforming the economic and political life of this country.”

Sanders described his new White House bid as a “continuation of what we did in 2016,” noting that policies he advocated for then are now embraced by the Democratic Party.

“You know what’s happened in over three years?” he said. “All of these ideas and many more are now part of the political mainstream.”

Sanders could be well positioned to compete in the nation’s first primary in neighbouring New Hampshire, which he won by 22 points in 2016. But he won’t have the state to himself.

Sen. Kamala Harris of California, another Democratic presidential contender, was in New Hampshire on Monday and said she’d compete for the state. She also appeared to take a dig at Sanders.

“The people of New Hampshire will tell me what’s required to compete in New Hampshire,” she told shoppers at a bookstore in Concord. “But I will tell you I’m not a democratic socialist.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren of nearby Massachusetts will be in New Hampshire on Friday.

One of the biggest questions surrounding Sanders’ candidacy is how he’ll compete against someone like Warren, who shares many of his policy goals. Warren has already launched her campaign and has planned an aggressive swing through the early primary states.

Shortly after announcing her exploratory committee, Warren hired Brendan Summers, who managed Sanders’ 2016 Iowa campaign. Other staffers from Sanders’ first bid also have said they would consider working for other candidates in 2020.

The crowded field includes a number of other candidates who will likely make strong appeals to the Democratic base including Harris and Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York. The field could also grow, with a number of high-profile Democrats still considering presidential bids, including former Vice-President Joe Biden and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke.

While Sanders had been working to lay the groundwork for a second campaign for months, it was unclear whether he will be able to expand his appeal beyond his largely white base of supporters. In 2016, Sanders notably struggled to garner support from black voters, an issue that could become particularly pervasive during a primary race that could include several non-white candidates.

Last month, he joined Booker at an event in Columbia, South Carolina, marking the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. In 2016, Sanders lost the South Carolina primary, which features a heavily black electorate, by 47 points.

Sanders also faces different pressures in the #MeToo era. Some of his male staffers and supporters in 2016 were described as “Bernie bros” for their treatment of women.

In the run-up to Sanders’ 2020 announcement, persistent allegations emerged of sexual harassment of women by male staffers during his 2016 campaign. Politico and The New York Times reported several allegations of unwanted sexual advances and pay inequity.

In an interview with CNN after the initial allegations surfaced, Sanders apologized but also noted he was “a little busy running around the country trying to make the case.”

As additional allegations emerged, he offered a more unequivocal apology.

“What they experienced was absolutely unacceptable and certainly not what a progressive campaign — or any campaign — should be about,” Sanders said Jan. 10 on Capitol Hill. “Every woman in this country who goes to work today or tomorrow has the right to make sure that she is working in an environment which is free of harassment, which is safe and is comfortable, and I will do my best to make that happen.”

U.S. response to detained Canadians in China not strong enough: Sen. Lindsey Graham – National

[ad_1]

U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham said Friday the response by the United States to China detaining two Canadians in apparent retaliation for the arrest of a Chinese Huawei executive has not been strong enough.

Graham also told Munich Security Conference delegates the international reaction to China’s arrest of ex-diplomat Michael Kovrig and entrepreneur Michael Spavor hasn’t been enough to persuade China that its apparent use of hostage diplomacy won’t be tolerated.

“The president has been tough on China but this is one area where I think we need to make a more definitive statement, because the two people arrested in China had nothing to do with the rule of law. It was just grabbing two Canadians,” Graham said.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, who appeared on the panel with Graham, mouthed the words “thank you” to Graham after he said it. Roland Paris, one of the delegates and a former foreign policy adviser to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, asked Graham about it.

U.S. ambassador to Canada Kelly Craft said last Saturday her country is “deeply concerned” about China’s “unlawful” detention of the two Canadians in what was her first public comments on the cases since China detained them on Dec. 10 in an apparent attempt to pressure Canada to release Chinese executive Meng Wanzhou, who was arrested Dec. 1 at the request of U.S. authorities.

Meng is the chief financial officer of the Chinese tech giant Huawei and the daughter of its founder. The U.S. wants her extradited to face charges that she committed fraud by misleading banks about Huawei’s business dealings in Iran.

China also re-sentenced a convicted Canadian drug smuggler, Robert Schellenberg, to death after the Meng arrest as part of an apparent campaign of intimidation and retribution against Canada.

Some analysts have said the U.S. response to China’s arrests of the two Canadians has been muted. U.S. President Donald Trump himself has not commented on the Canadians. But U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has, saying China ought to release them. White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders and the State Department have issued brief statements of support.

Beijing threatened grave consequences for America’s neighbour and longtime ally after Meng was arrested at Vancouver’s airport.

Canada has embarked on a campaign with allies to win the release of Kovrig and Spavor, and many countries have issued statements in support.

“These are human beings and they only thing they did was be Canadian in China,” Freeland said. Freeland said she would be grateful if more countries spoke out.

“We will all be stronger and safer if we all can do that for each other,” she said. “We can’t descend to a might-makes-right world and that’s especially essentially for middle powers.”

The two Canadians were detained on vague allegations of “engaging in activities that endanger the national security” of China. They remain locked up without access to lawyers.

Meng is out on bail in Canada and awaiting extradition proceedings.

U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris’s classmates from her Canadian high school cheer her potential run for president

[ad_1]

WASHINGTON—In the yearbook photo of the 1981 graduating class at Westmount High School near Montreal, the left hand of a beaming Kamala Harris is resting on the right shoulder of Hugh Kwok.

Kwok went on to run a Montreal car business with his father. Unbeknownst to him, Harris went on to be a U.S. senator. She’s now contemplating a bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020.

When Kwok was asked in December for his thoughts on his old pal’s potential run, he answered a reporter’s question with a question.

“She’s running for president of what?” he asked in a tone that suggested he thought the answer might be the local Rotary Club.

Informed that it was the presidency of the United States, his voice rose. “No way. Oh my goodness. I can’t believe it,” he said. Then he decided he was supportive of this idea.

“We could use a good president,” he said. “She was a sweet, kind person. Very happy, very social. I’m just very excited for her, if that’s what she wants to do with her life.”

Harris has said she will decide over the holidays whether to run for president. If she does, she will be considered one of the major candidates in what is expected to be a crowded competition for the Democratic nomination. It is now possible that Westmount, the 145-year-old public school where singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen and hockey legend Art Ross also studied, will produce a U.S. president before it produces a Canadian prime minister.

Harris returned to her native U.S. for university, and she long ago lost touch with most or all of her Westmount acquaintances. But some of them have traded delighted texts and Facebook posts about her ascent. And they are generally not all that surprised.

They remember the California senator, now 54, as an assured, cheery teenager who thrived both in school and on the dance floor. They say she maintained an easy popularity across the subtle divides of a racially and economically diverse student body that drew from both wealthy and lower-income neighbourhoods.

Harris “gave off an aura suggesting she was poised for success,” said Paul Olioff, now an academic adviser at McGill University, who recalled her as a “terrific, confident presence” with an advanced fashion sense.

“Westmount High was a very racially segregated school when we attended, not in a hostile way, but more because of socio-economic divisions. Ms. Harris transcended this, as there were few students she didn’t get along with,” Olioff said in an email.

This is at least the fourth consecutive presidential election in which a major candidate has had family ties to Canada. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who lost the Republican primary to Donald Trump in 2016, was born in Calgary. Former president Barack Obama has a brother-in-law from Burlington.

As Obama and Cruz know, the “America First” Trump has a talent for portraying an opponent’s links to foreign countries as grounds for voter suspicion. Asked via email how her Westmount years influenced her, Harris expressed no particular fondness for Montreal, Quebec or Canada.

“While my sister Maya and I made great friends and even learned some French, we were happy to return home to California,” she said through a spokesperson.

She did add: “One of the women’s auxiliary groups at the hospital my mother worked at ended up inspiring me to help create an auxiliary group at the Highland Hospital in Oakland later in life.”

Harris, a former San Francisco district attorney and California attorney general, is the California-born daughter of two immigrants to the U.S., both of whom earned PhDs: India-born scientist and breast cancer researcher Shyamala Gopalan Harris and Jamaican-born economics professor Donald Harris.

They divorced when Kamala was a young child. When she was 12, she said, her mother moved to Montreal for a job researching at the Jewish General Hospital and teaching at McGill. Her mother spent 16 years in the job, according to a 2009 family obituary.

Both of Harris’s parents were involved in the U.S. civil rights movement. Sister and fellow Westmount student Maya Harris, who became a lawyer, adviser to Hillary Clinton and television commentator, told the San Francisco Chronicle that Kamala became something of an activist in Quebec at 13 — organizing a successful children’s protest against a no-playing-in-the-yard policy at their apartment building.

In the 1981 Westmount yearbook, Harris thanked her mother and listed “California” as a cherished memory. She said a favourite pastime was “dancing with super six; Midnight Magic.” Old friend Wanda Kagan told the Canadian Press last year that Midnight Magic was their amateur dance troupe, which she said performed at fundraisers and for seniors at community centres.

Eyal Dattel, a human resources director in Vancouver, said he recalls his drama classmate as “always a truly nice person” and now sees her as “an ideal candidate for a progressive future.” Dean Smith, a Montreal basketball coach, said he remembers Harris as a hard-studying and likeable student who helped classmates with schoolwork and preferred to spend time with average kids rather than with moneyed elites.

“In my opinion, she’d be a great president, because she’s fair,” he said.

John Dila, a Harris classmate who is now a Harris constituent as a businessman on the California startup scene, said the Westmount students of the day regularly discussed politics.

Harris lived in Quebec at a tense time in local affairs: the provincial government passed its French-language law in 1977, held a referendum on independence in 1980, and, in 1981, opposed the patriation of the Constitution. Dila, who praised Harris at length, said he thinks she understands policy issues better than American colleagues who have had narrower life experiences.

“Having lived in Canada — those are seminal years, and I can’t believe she wasn’t deeply shaped by the handful of years that she was there,” he said.

At least one Westmount classmate is cool to Harris’s candidacy. Gail Clarke described the teenage Harris as “pretend sweet,” lamenting that the senator decided in Grade 11 that she was too unexciting to continue hanging out with. Clarke added: “I do wish Kamala the best.”

Before Harris, Westmount’s most successful politician graduate was Stockwell Day, the Conservative former federal minister and former leader of the Canadian Alliance party.

Even Day, Class of ’67, had positive words about Harris’s bid. He said her experience at a school at once diverse and harmonious would have “given her some great insights into how a multinational population really can work and live together.”

“Her policies as Attorney General in California on things like gun control and criminal justice reform would fit in quite well in Canada,” Day said in an email. “If she runs and wins the presidency, I will definitely reach out to her to see if Westmount High alums can get tickets to her inauguration!”

Legault ne s’en mêlera pas du conflit sur la taxe fédérale sur le carbone

[ad_1]

François Legault n’entend pas se mêler du conflit judiciaire qui oppose Ottawa à la Saskatchewan et à l’Ontario au sujet de la taxe sur le carbone, le premier ministre disant tenir à l’autonomie des provinces.

La Saskatchewan s’est adressée aux tribunaux pour contester le droit constitutionnel d’Ottawa d’imposer aux provinces une taxe sur le carbone. L’Ontario s’est ensuite joint à cette contestation. La province du premier ministre Doug Ford a par la suite intenté sa propre contestation judiciaire.

Le gouvernement fédéral exige que les provinces mettent en place d’ici janvier un régime de tarification de la pollution des gaz à effet de serre (GES), sans quoi Ottawa leur imposera sa propre taxe sur le carbone, sous la forme d’une redevance sur l’essence et autres combustibles. Cette façon de faire ne plaît pas à la Saskatchewan, pas plus qu’à l’Ontario. La décision fédérale ne vise pas le Québec, car il dispose déjà d’une bourse du carbone, un système de plafonnement et d’échange de droits d’émission de GES.

La Colombie-Britannique a décidé, elle, d’appuyer le gouvernement fédéral en intervenant dans les deux litiges. Mais ce ne sera pas le cas du Québec.

François Legault n’a pas l’intention d’intervenir « ni d’un côté ni de l’autre », a-t-il déclaré vendredi matin.

Après avoir distribué des livres à des enfants malades qu’il visitait à l’Hôpital Sainte-Justine, à Montréal, le premier ministre a déclaré qu’Ottawa ne devrait pas forcer la main des provinces.

« M. Trudeau veut imposer aux provinces. Nous, on tient beaucoup à l’autonomie des provinces », a-t-il dit.

« Donc, on ne va pas se mêler de ce conflit entre M. Trudeau et certaines provinces. »

Pourtant, en campagne électorale, M. Legault avait promis que s’il était élu, il serait l’allié de Justin Trudeau dans la lutte contre les changements climatiques. Une déclaration qu’il a répétée au principal intéressé peu après avoir pris le pouvoir à Québec.

Le Québec dispose d’une bourse du carbone depuis quelques années, un système adopté par le précédent gouvernement libéral, mais qui a l’aval du nouveau premier ministre québécois.

Le premier ministre ontarien Doug Ford a aussi hérité d’une bourse du carbone du gouvernement libéral qui l’a précédé. Mais il a plutôt décidé de retirer la province de ce système auquel participe, en plus du Québec, la Californie.

Le gouvernement Ford s’en prend aussi à la culture

[ad_1]

L’annonce de la suspension de la création de l’Université de l’Ontario français (UOF) et de l’abolition du Commissariat aux services en français* dissimule une autre remise en cause d’un projet sociétal tout aussi important à Toronto. Depuis plus de vingt ans, les organismes culturels et sociocommunautaires de la Ville Reine cherchent à construire un carrefour francophone : un complexe regroupant une partie importante des organismes assurant la vie française pour une population en pleine croissance dans la métropole canadienne. Parmi les partenaires, il y a le Groupe Média TFO, le Collège Boréal, le Centre francophone — lequel comprend un centre d’accueil pour les immigrés et une clinique — et le Théâtre français de Toronto (TFT). Rappelons que le TFT est la dernière compagnie du Canada français à ne pas disposer de sa propre salle. L’UOF devait être le pilier central de ce complexe. Dans le grand mouvement de construction de théâtres d’expression française à l’extérieur du Québec, le TFT demeure l’oublié et une occasion importante de rectifier cette situation vient de disparaître.

L’annonce de l’annulation d’une subvention importante à La Nouvelle Scène Gilles Desjardins d’Ottawa confirme le peu d’intérêt que porte le gouvernement conservateur aux arts ainsi qu’un acharnement certain vis-à-vis des Franco-Ontariens. Après l’absence de français lors du dernier discours du trône à Queen’s Park, après la rétrogradation du ministère aux Affaires francophones, les désaveux ne cessent de se multiplier. La tendance se confirme et, comme à chaque génération, les Franco-Ontariens montent au front.

Une nouvelle lutte

Or, force est de constater que les choses ont changé. Les médias sociaux ont permis une organisation de la lutte plus rapide qu’auparavant. Un réseau scolaire aujourd’hui bien en place fait en sorte que la francophonie ontarienne est plus que jamais visible auprès de ses concitoyens anglophones qui comprennent notre désir naturel d’un accès à une éducation postsecondaire. Il y a aussi les francophiles — représentant par ailleurs près 50 % du public du TFT — qui ont le français à coeur pour des raisons identitaires et culturelles. À eux s’ajoutent les francophones et les anglophones du Québec qui voient en cette lutte la leur pour la tolérance et le droit à la différence culturelle.

Bien sûr, les débats internes marquent l’existence collective des Franco-Ontariens. Faut-il s’étonner que certains anglophones cherchent maintenant à instrumentaliser des critiques pour justifier les coupes. Il n’en demeure pas moins que la complexité idéologique de l’Ontario français ne saurait mettre à mal une solidarité palpable contre des gestes qui se lisent comme discriminatoires. On n’a qu’à regarder les actions contestatrices des députés néo-démocrates France Gélinas, Guy Bourgoin ou Gilles Bisson, des libéraux Marie-France Lalonde et Nathalie Des Rosiers et même de la conservatrice Amanda Simard qui s’est désolidarisée de son parti le 22 novembre pour comprendre à quel point Mme Pelletier, du Devoir, dans « Dead Ducks depuis 1968 » a tort de rattacher les Franco-Ontariens à une pensée idéologique univoque.

Témoignant également de cette nouvelle complexité contextuelle, si les médias anglophones auparavant se positionnaient souvent contre les revendications francophones, il y a aujourd’hui divergence d’opinions ; toute l’équipe éditoriale du Toronto Star décriant ouvertement les injustices faites aux Franco-Ontariens dans « Ford has delivered a slap in the face to Ontario’s francophones » se distingue ainsi d’un National Post arguant le contraire dans « Ontario government isn’t undermining francophone rights » sous la plume de Randall Denley. […] À Toronto comme ailleurs en Ontario, le débat fait rage.

« Francophobie »

Il faut noter néanmoins que la « francophobie » anglo-saxonne a elle aussi changé depuis la crise autour de l’Hôpital Montfort (1997). Elle s’inscrit désormais davantage dans un populisme réducteur qui refuse justement la différence et la consultation démocratique. Il est tout à fait logique de s’en prendre à l’éducation, mais il l’est tout aussi de s’en prendre à la culture et aux institutions qui encouragent la réflexion à travers le geste artistique.

La table est mise. La voie juridique apparaît de plus en plus à l’horizon comme un moyen pour faire annuler ces décisions provinciales. Or, il faut aussi réfléchir à la prochaine élection fédérale. Bien que monsieur Andrew Scheer, chef du Parti conservateur du Canada, ait exprimé une réserve quant aux choix de M. Ford, il demeure toujours peu critique à son égard. Il doit davantage se distinguer des actions de Queen’s Park s’il espère gagner des voix au Québec et ailleurs au Canada français dans un an. Aura-t-il le même courage qu’Amanda Simard ?

* Ce texte a été écrit avant le recul partiel de Doug Ford le 23 novembre. Le gouvernement conservateur s’est engagé à créer un poste de commissaire aux services en français au sein du Bureau de l’ombudsman.

Entraves au Bureau des enquêtes indépendantes: la ministre Guilbault ne s’en mêle pas

[ad_1]

Les révélations que des services de police entravent le travail du Bureau des enquêtes indépendantes (BEI) ne justifient pas qu’on renforce les pouvoirs de l’organisation, selon la ministre de la Sécurité publique, Geneviève Guilbault.

« C’est […] normal, je pense, pour une jeune organisation, de devoir faire des rappels à ses partenaires sur la façon dont on doit tous travailler ensemble », a déclaré à ce propos la ministre mardi matin lors d’une annonce à Québec.

Lundi, des organismes ont révélé que la patronne du BEI, Madeleine Giauque, avait écrit à différents corps de police pour se plaindre du fait que des policiers avaient enfreint les règles sur le déroulement de ses enquêtes. Cinq de ces lettres visaient le Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM). 

À titre d’exemple, des policiers impliqués dans un événement où un homme avait été blessé par balle n’avaient pas été isolés pour rédiger le rapport alors que le règlement sur les enquêtes du BEI l’exige. La directrice du BEI déplore en outre que des policiers refusent de répondre aux questions de son personnel et que certains services de police tardent à lui transmettre de l’information.

Priée de dire s’il fallait, selon elle, donner au BEI de nouveaux pouvoirs pour sanctionner de tels comportements, Mme Guilbault a répondu que les lettres transmises par Mme Giauque lui semblaient suffisantes pour faire face au problème. « Je comprends pour l’instant que Mme Giauque a fait des rappels à divers corps de police. Notamment au SPVM, mais pas exclusivement à en juger par ce qu’on a lu dans les médias. Moi, je l’ai dit la semaine dernière, je vois d’un bon œil cette action de Me Giauque […] parce que c’est important que tous les corps de police se conforment aux pratiques qui ont été mises en place pour le fonctionnement du BEI et le fonctionnement des enquêtes menées par le BEI. »

La ministre a ajouté qu’elle était « rassurée » de voir que Mme Giauque prend les choses « au sérieux » et dit « tenir pour acquis que tous se conformeront, dans un esprit de collaboration en tout respect des règles qui ont été mises en place pour que le BEI fonctionne bien ».

Mondiaux de jeux vidéo : une femme de Québec s’en va en Chine avec missharvey

[ad_1]

Un texte d’Alain Rochefort

Julie Bouchard, 23 ans, est nouvellement intégrée au sein d’une équipe entièrement féminine qui a mérité son billet pour le pays de l’Empire du Milieu grâce à une victoire aux championnats canadiens au jeu en ligne Counter-Strike : Global Offensive, le week-end dernier, à Toronto.

Les autres membres de l’équipe sont des professionnelles de ce jeu de tir, où deux équipes s’affrontent.

« On s’est fait une équipe pour le Canada, un quatuor. On a fait une équipe juste pour les Mondiaux. Mes coéquipières jouent dans des équipes professionnelles. Moi, je suis juste la petite recrue qui attend mon tour », explique Julie Bouchard, elle-même connue sous le pseudo bouchard dans la communauté du jeu en ligne.

« Elles m’ont pris dans leur équipe vu qu’elles ont vu en moi un potentiel pour le futur », ajoute la femme qui joue plus sérieusement à Counter-Strike: Global Offensive depuis deux ans seulement.

Sur un nuage

Julie Bouchard flottait toujours sur un nuage lundi en studio à l’émission C’est encore mieux l’après-midi. Elle s’estime très choyée de jouer aux côtés de missharvey dans une compétition aussi relevée.

« C’est une star. Je ne la voyais pas comme une humaine parce qu’on la voit toujours à la radio, à la télévision. C’est un honneur. Elle m’a comme pris sous son aile et elle m’apprend beaucoup de choses », a-t-elle confié à l’animateur Guillaume Dumas.

Elle m’a inspiré beaucoup et de pouvoir jouer avec elle, c’est irréel. Elle m’a pris sous son aile et m’a appris ses trucs.

Julie Bouchard, connue sous le pseudo bouchard

Elle prédit une victoire en Chine

Même si elle est une recrue, Julie Bouchard déborde de confiance. Elle y va même d’une prédiction audacieuse en vue des championnats du monde.

« Selon moi, on va gagner. Selon moi, on est la meilleure équipe au monde. Mais on pratique énormément », souligne la jeune femme.

Julie Bouchard souhaite d’ailleurs devenir une professionnelle des jeux vidéo, comme missharvey, également originaire de Québec.
