  Can Trudeau put his stamp on the Supreme Court? That's not how it works here, say experts The coming retirement of chief justice of the Supreme Court could be seen by some as an opportunity for the prime minister to put his stamp on the institution, but experts say Canada’s high court is almost impossible to steer in any direction.When the Supreme Court of Canada ruled in Feb. 2015 that denying a doctor-assisted death was unconstitutional, seven of the justices on the bench were appointees of former prime minister Stephen Harper.

"...We're just waiting and seeing."U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue has already raised concerns about access to Canada for U.S. dairy, wheat and wine.

OTTAWA - Manitoba's finance minister says he's feeling rushed by the Trudeau government's July 2018 timeline for legalizing recreational marijuana, and he wants an extension.

Cameron Friesen says with the clock ticking there are still many unanswered questions on issues like public safety, enforcement and finding legal supplies of marijuana.

He says provinces are responsible for much of the work and the high costs needed to create a regulated cannabis market.

Friesen was speaking in Ottawa before a federal-provincial finance ministers meeting, which is exploring the issue of how to tax Canada's forthcoming legal pot industry, among other things.

He says he mentioned the idea of an extension to federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau — but didn't reveal how much extra time he's hoping for.

Provinces miss deadlines to allocate first round of infrastructure cash

  Provinces miss deadlines to allocate first round of infrastructure cash Infrastructure Minister Amarjeet Sohi is downplaying deadlines his department set for provinces to allocate infrastructure money after many of them missed those targets. The government’s first big infrastructure boost was announced in the 2016 budget at $3.4 billion and was just the beginning of over $180 billion the federal government has committed to building transit, social housing and other major projects. The initial money was divided into transit projects, as well as water and wastewater projects.

Provincial ministers are planning to push Ottawa to ensure they receive a share of pot-related tax revenue that fairly reflects the added costs provinces will have to assume on the road to legalization.

For Friesen, the Trudeau government's implementation date is an important issue.

"In respect of a July 1, 2018, deadline, we're concerned and we'll express that upstairs — it feels rushed," Friesen said before heading into the meeting.

"This is a very significant shift in how we'll operate and we need to have that adequate time to develop the tools that we will need as a province to be able to implement this the correct way."

He also noted that a cannabis working group has been assessing the next steps on key issues like taxation, consumption, sobriety tests and public awareness campaigns.

"We can't have a half-baked cake here," Friesen said. "We have to make sure that all of this analysis is done."

Trudeau Actually Held A 'Poutine Summit' With Belgian PM .
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sat down with Belgium’s Prime Minister Charles Michel for a “poutine summit” at an Ottawa chip wagon Friday. Yes, poutine, as in that one and only savoury union of fries, gravy, and cheese curds — which has apparently become a go-to icebreaker with visiting dignitaries whenever cameras are involved.
