This week in Canadian history, June 25, 1968: Canada’s first black Member of Parliament joins the House of Commons.
Progressive Conservative Lincoln Alexander is elected as the Member of Parliament for Hamilton West. After serving with the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II, Alexander practised law and became Queen’s Counsel.
Alexander will spend 12 years as a Member of Parliament before retiring and serving as Chair of the Worker’s Compensation Board of Ontario. In December 2014, the Canadian government declares January 21 “Lincoln Alexander Day.”

MedMen Enterprises Inc. (CSE: MMEN) celebrate the end of what they claim is a “frivolous” lawsuit brought by investors.
The matter revolves around certain shares being locked-up by the company, preventing their sale. MedMen attacked the litigious investors in a press release, characterizing them as follows:
“Not only is this behavior extremely disappointing as it places Cox and Mangalji’s personal issues with the Company ahead of the interests of the shareholders., but it reeks of an attempt to unfairly compete by using the public court system to gain publicity for their own company.
Immediately after filing the faulty lawsuit, Mangalji, a reported playboy who uses the alias ‘Ronnie Bacardi,’ appeared on various news media outlets touting his baseless claims and plugging his own competing company. Having used the initial lawsuit to promote their own company, Cox and Mangalji now seek to retreat to the anonymity of a confidential arbitration to avoid publicly airing their own wrongdoings.”
Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (CSE: BOLT) has shipped mini‐bulk sample materials from its Cyclops nickel‐cobalt property to its extractive technology and mineral process development partner.

They’re saying the Trump-China trade spat is mostly over, with China being the undeclared victor.
Reports say the US will lift some restrictions on Huawei Technologies and will postpone tariffs that Trump threatened to impose on $300 billion of Chinese imports. In exchange, China will buy more U.S. agricultural products.
Where does that leave Canada?
Still holding the bag, as Huawei executive Meng Wangzhou’s case wends it way slowly through court. The US still wants her extradited to face prosecution, and China still seems intent on punishing Canada for participating in the process.
Canadian soy farmers and others are hoping we get some ‘trickle down’ relief, as the two superpowers ease back from their entrenched positions and the rhetoric returns more to normal.
