    November 27, 2011

    London Immigration lawyer Ed Corrigan said his libel case against Will Hector for calling him "one of the worst anti-Semites in Canada and an idiotic spammer," in an email to the Law Union of Ontario (LUO) List forum, will be a precedent setting legal decision on the question: "is criticism of Israel or Zionism anti-Semitic?"

  • Mental health of immigrantsThe Canadian Charger
    November 27, 2011

    Providing mental health services to immigrants and refugees is a particular challenge because of the need to understand and deal appropriately with cultural factors different from the Western Judaeo-Christian cultures that Western psychiatry is familiar with. But that is not all. According to Dr. G. Eric Jarvis, a psychiatry professor at McGill, "The patient may be influenced by more than one culture. There is the culture from before immigration as well as the culture which he is more or less integrating into in his new home."

    December 5, 2011

    The Arab Spring was attempting to poke its head from under the autocratic cold in sunny Bahrain back in February 2011. Demonstrations broke out in Manama's Pearl Square. Rulers of Bahrain are Sunni, while most Bahrainis are Shi'ite, so of course the charge was that it was all Iranian-inspired. As in the other cases, efforts were made to put the demonstrations down with brute force. Again as elsewhere, the repression was failing. That is, until other forces interfered.
