Okay, one bit of politics: The Munk Debate on Populism, a debate between David Frum and Steve Bannon, will be live-streamed here from Toronto tonight at 7:00 US eastern time. Also airing on CPAC TV in Canada and C-SPAN in the U.S., and streamed on Facebook Live.

Enjoy the weekend. See you next week.
