California becomes first state to require women to be on corporate board The measure requires at least one female director on each board of California-based corporations by the end of next year. Companies would need up to three female directors by the end of 2021, depending on the number of board seats. The Democratic governor referenced the objections and legal concerns that the law has raised. “I don’t minimize the potential flaws that indeed may prove fatal to its ultimate implementation,” Brown wrote in a signing statement. “Nevertheless, recent events in Washington, D.C. – and beyond – make it...

Shut Up and Sing: Celebrity and Politics Don’t Mix The last couple of weeks our friends over at the Drudge Report have highlighted stories on musicians taking on the Bush Administration over the war in Iraq. A week or so ago, Drudge highlighted Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters’ anti-Bush message painted on a flying pig and yesterday pushed the story about George Michael making some anti-Bush statements at a recent concert. Drudge smartly presents these items in a way that gets his readership, and allied media outlets, fired up and chatting about the appropriateness of celebrities speaking out on political...

Evansville Trump rally got Ford Center’s largest-ever crowd Thursday night’s Trump rally drew the Ford Center’s largest crowd ever, according to manager VenuWorks. The turnout: 11,500 people, with another 2,000 unable to get in. Meanwhile, the Evansville Police Department issued its official estimate of the crowd protesting President Trump outside the arena – 500 to 600 people at its peak. Scott Schoenike, executive director of Ford Center manager VenuWorks, said the absence of chairs and the use of a relatively small stage were the keys to squeezing in 11,500 people. The $120 million, 290,000-square foot facility has 9,200 fixed...

Maxime Bernier’s new political party: The People’s Party of Canada Quebec MP Maxime Bernier is naming his new political venture The People’s Party of Canada. Bernier says the name– which will be PPC for short — fits a party that represents people who are tired of Canadian politics being hijacked by special interest groups, cartels and lobbyists. The maverick MP quit his party last month after spending much of the year butting heads with Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer over supply management and says the new party will be registered with Elections Canada over the next several weeks. https://ottawasun.com/news/national/maxime-berniers-new-political-party-the-peoples-party-of-canada/wcm/4fee4388-ecd0-4830-841f-1d7627ec26ce Trudeau...

Canada’s Gun Control Laws Could Become Big Issue For 2019 Election Both the Liberals and Conservatives are talking a lot about guns. Eighteen months ahead of the vote, both the governing party and the official Opposition are laying the groundwork for making guns a wedge issue, to carve away a share of each other’s softer support. The Liberals are aiming at cities and suburbs, while the Conservatives focus on rural and remote ridings. Justin Trudeau fired the first shot with Bill C-71, his Liberal government’s recently tabled effort to tighten Canada’s firearms law, including enhanced background checks for obtaining...

Liberals look to brand Andrew Scheer as ‘Stephen Harper 2.0’ Liberal Party strategists have started their 2019 campaign preparations in earnest, focusing their energies on Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer and their plan to aggressively brand him as “Stephen Harper 2.0” ahead of the next election. Liberal MPs at the caucus retreat in Saskatoon took part in a briefing last night on the party’s readiness ahead of the 2019 election — a briefing that placed heavy emphasis on defining Scheer as a protégé of the former prime minister, sources inside the caucus room said. https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/tasker-liberal-retreat-scheer-stephen-harper-1.4821969 70,000 Whites Murdered in ‘Modern’...

‘People experience things differently,’ Trudeau says of groping allegations Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says there is no need to conduct an investigation into an allegation that he inappropriately touched a female reporter in British Columbia 18 years ago. “We have, as we always do, taken these issues seriously,” Trudeau said in an exclusive interview with CP24, when asked if the allegation that circulated throughout the national press over the last few weeks should be investigated. “We’ve talked to a broad range of experts on these. I’ve been reflecting very carefully on this and I think we are moving forward...

Tory leader Andrew Scheer cannot be a pussyfooter It’s make it or break it time for Andrew Scheer. The newish leader of the Conservative Party of Canada – his squeaker victory in May coming as a surprise during the 13th round of a complicated balloting system – has to break up the lovefest Canadians still seem to have for Justin Trudeau. This is job number one, and it’s no easy task. https://torontosun.com/2017/09/18/tory-leader-andrew-scheer-cannot-be-a-pussyfooter/wcm/56674b17-5c00-40ce-b97a-2c8abc2ed965 Freeland says losing NAFTA would be a blow to U.S.: ‘Canada is important to the U.S., too’ Before Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland travelled to Washington...

Loaded language: The gun metaphors that pervade our everyday slang Sometimes it’s the offhand remark that’s the most telling. Indeed, the way we Americans casually, often unthinkingly, incorporate gun metaphors into our everyday slang says a lot about how deeply embedded guns are in our culture and our politics, and how difficult it is to control or extract them. Consider this list, presented as bullet points — which are themselves so conventional, so central to the typography of mind-numbing PowerPoint presentations, that you can forget what their shape represents. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/loaded-language-the-gun-metaphors-that-pervade-our-everyday-slang/2014/04/18/40c4053c-c3ed-11e3-b574-f8748871856a_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.b213e551d7cc California considers later school start times as students deal...
