Bilderberg 2017: secret meeting of global leaders could prove a problem for Trump

After an inconclusive election in the province’s legislature earlier this month, the Green party – which won three seats – agreed this week to form a minority government with the leftwing New Democratic party, potentially putting an end to 16 years of rule by the Liberals. A confidence vote is expected to take place this month, which could force Liberal premier Christy Clark to resign.

Elon Musk and Disney boss pull out of Trum advisory panelDonald Trump may think tackling climate change is bad for business. But business? Not so much.

Two of the US’s biggest business leaders, Tesla founder Elon Musk and Disney’s Robert Iger, have quit Trump’s high-powered business advisory panel after the president pressed ahead with plans to pull out of the Paris climate accord.

Trump created his business advisory panel shortly after his election as he sought to show how his administration would revamp the US by “drawing on private sector expertise”.

Flynn tis to Turkey eyed in probeThe Justice Department special counsel investigating Russian election interference will also look into former national security adviser Michael Flynn's lobbying work for Turkey, according to Reuters.

Robert Mueller’s probe will look into the grand jury investigation into Flynn’s paid work lobbying for a Turkish businessman, the report said. A Virginia grand jury has issued subpoenas to business associates of Flynn for documents, bank records and communications involving the lobbying work.
