Christopher Sands: Romney's Hollywood Remake of Canada's Foreign Policy
On Canadian Thanksgiving Monday, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney gave a major foreign policy address to the faculty and students of the Virginia Military Institute.

Rachel Décoste: Graffiti on the Wall: Ottawa's Racial Problem
Tuesday morning, three of Ottawa's four most read dailies had cover stories about the latest racist graffiti sighting in the city.
