Growing geopolitical tensions and 'Trumpflation' have spurred a dramatic increase in safe haven demand, and the ongoing Bitcoin craze clearly proves it.
Bitcoin prices have more than doubled in the year-to-date, while those of its closest peer, Ethereum, are up an eye-popping 4,500 percent.

Canadians use 9-15 billion plastic shopping bags every year

By John Powell | It is becoming increasingly clear that the Russian leader, Vladimir Putin, has a more realistic approach to the crisis in Syria than the Western leaders. With the power of hindsight, it can now be seen that if President Assad had been supported, instead of the opposition, there would have been no Islamic State in Syria and probably not in Iraq either. It is now up to the West to accept the leadership of Russia and try to avoid Syria going the way of Iraq and Libya, where the rem
