Hiking salaries is crucial, especially in a scenario where the yen is consistently depreciating against the USD. Otherwise, talented individuals may not be enticed, and they may still prefer opportunities in the US over those in Japan.

Posted in: 3 foreign-born residents sue over racial profiling by Japanese police See in context

During my five years in Japan, I experienced an incident at Iidabashi Station that left a lasting impression. On a Saturday afternoon, I was rushing from Shin-Okubo Station to catch the Namboku Line to reach the University of Tokyo. In my haste, carrying a moderate-sized bag filled with groceries weighing around 10-12 kg, I was unexpectedly stopped by a police officer.

The officer requested my residence card and asked me to sign a document, all of which took only about two minutes. Despite the brevity of the encounter, it became a source of significant embarrassment for me. The station, typically bustling with activity, was unusually empty at that moment. The abrupt halt, seemingly for no apparent reason, added to the awkwardness of the situation.

It's a matter of domestic politics for Trudeau. These days, it seems like nobody pays much attention to Canada. Day by day, Canada appears to be becoming less relevant in geopolitics.
