Canadian politicians are failing Canada and Canadians in their wholesale praise and adoration of a man who devoted his time in our national parliament to the betrayal of Canadians by active participation in the destruction of freedom, justice, and democracy in Canada.
The GLobe and Mail claims to be Canada's National Newspaper. It is, rather, a propaganda voice for The One Per Cent. Because of that plain fact Canadians are abandoning it and all the similarly directed conventional media for "other sources of information".
As is so often the case when Quebec comes up in the news, the current provincial election has led to a lot of people calling for that province to simply leave Canada once and for all. However, I'm not sure that the people, both inside and outside Quebec, who want la belle province to leave have thought through exactly what the implications would be...
The Winter Olympics are now part of the history books. However, while this celebration of global unity was happening, the gruesome civil war in Syria has continued unabated. The civil war in Libya prompted Western countries like Canada to provide military support to the rebels, but so far no Western country has done the same thing in Syria.
The One Per Cent has declared war on the democratic governments of the world. The industrial/financial war-lords began the struggle against humanity before the nneteenth century ... and haver never given up. Wake Up To The Modern World.
Most Canadians have heard of Robert Service (1874-1958) as the popular and successful author of The Shooting of Dan McGrew and The Cremation of Sam McGee. These two ballad type poems catapulted Service to the forefront of popular Canadian literary life. These poems were published in Songs of a Sourdough (1907), and this slim missive became the first book of poetry in Canada that sold well and made a substantive profit.
Who was Robert Service, though, before Songs of a Sourdough was published to such acclaim and attention? And, what sort of path did Service hike after his early fame as bard and tale teller of the Yukon was left behind?
The debate over Quebec’s secular Charter of Values has been a heated one. The proposed Charter would restrict public servants from wearing conspicuous religious items such as burqas and niqabs, which many critics say infringes on the rights and freedoms of religious minorities in Quebec. Quebecers who support the Charter, in turn, have been accused of bigotry, especially by other Canadians, claiming that this is just another example of the racism that is supposedly so prevalent in that province, and the supposed ethnic nationalism of the Parti Quebecois.
In the sharpening contest between the repressive super-rich of the world and protesting populations, Canada's major political parties have lined up. With the super-rich. But ... 'come the revolution ....'
Tax-filing season, everybody’s favourite time of year, is once again upon us in Canada. It’s that time of year that we get to see just how much of our money our provincial and federal governments are taking to spend on seemingly wasteful things that nobody is supposed to care about. It’s also the perfect time of year for the politicians to start talking louder than usual about cutting taxes and eliminating unnecessary spending.
In Part I of this essay, we discussed the origins of Quebec nationalism and how it developed into a desire by Francophone Quebecers to have their province recognized as a distinct society within Canada. In Part II, we saw how Pierre Trudeau sought to counter this as Prime Minister of Canada, how he fought subsequent attempts to recognize Quebec’s distinctiveness, and how the Trudeau Paradox emerged from it. In Part III, we’ll see a possible way around the Trudeau Paradox, as well as the fact that there’s a lot more common ground between Francophone Quebecers and their fellow Canadians than most people realize.
