Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had a homecoming, of sorts, travelling to Cuba this week to visit the regressive island dictatorship.

People from around the world witnessed history last week as Donald Trump won the U.S. election. The pollsters couldn’t predict such a monumental win for The Donald. The American media refused to believe the possibility of a Trump Administration, even the media in Canada predicted a sweeping win for Hillary Clinton. President-elect Donald Trump proved all of his critics wrong, as Americans voted in favour of policies such as stricter immigration controls and a shift on foreign policy and international development.

Canada will bring in 300,000 new arrivals next year despite the government’s own economic council recommending raising the target to 450,000. We’re glad to see the government focus on economic immigrants (skilled workers, entrepreneurs, caregivers, etc.) to address shortages in the Canadian economy. However, it’s not enough to simply bring in more immigrants into the country. The government has to ensure Canada is bringing in the necessary skills to fill the various labour needs across the country and help grow the economy to benefit ALL CANADIANS. It’s not acceptable that skilled immigrants are struggling to find jobs even though they’re qualified

It was a significant week for the Conservatives last week, as they were able to force the Liberal government to support their opposition motion to start bringing in Yazidi refugees. The Yazidis are a religious minority based in northern Iraq and are a target for ISIS.
