  • Why I Don't Speak of 9/11 AnymoreEdward Curtin
    September 15, 2017

    Tuesday, September 11, 2001, was a non-teaching day for me. I was home when the phone rang at 9 A.M. It was my daughter, who was on a week's vacation with her future husband. "Turn on the TV," she said. "Why?" I asked. "Haven't you heard? A plane hit the World Trade Tower."

  • Killing as a troubling cinematic art formEdward Wasserman
    August 29, 2012

    The media seem to move on from mass killings more quickly nowadays than they used to, and within three days of the Aurora, Colo., cinema massacre the killer's first appearance in court didn’t make the front of The New York Times.

    July 28, 2010

    Day after day, Israel defies international law and the international community. Its Apartheid Wall annexes occupied Palestinian territory and displaces the local Palestinian population. It inflicts collective punishment on the civilian population of Gaza through a crippling blockade and ferocious attacks involving illegal weapons.

    November 24, 2010

    The Eastern Ontario town of Tamworth was the site of this year's "Usuryfree Week," a forum for raising citizen awareness about how the present system of money, banking, and credit works (or frequently doesn't work), and generating alternatives for local communities.

  • Bibles-in-schools controversy reveals both division and hopeEleanor Grant
    December 16, 2010

    Gideon Bibles were part of our lives when I was a child in school 50 years ago. Even in high school, the days started with the national anthem, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Principal reading us a passage from the New Testament over the PA system. School, church, and Sunday school were a seamless web. There were hymns at school assemblies, and there were flags and prayers for the Queen in church sanctuaries.

  • Haiti: Why nothing gets betterEleanor Grant
    January 13, 2011

    "Since 2004, the new colonists have painted the face of us who are Haitian with the mud of humiliation." - Jean-Bertrand Aristide, year-end letter to the Haitian people, Dec. 21 from exile in South Africa. The hearts of the world opened to Haiti a year ago this week, in the wake of the vast destruction and death and injury caused by the devastating earthquake. But today we are bewildered and angry to see that the rubble still isn't being removed and thousands are still living in crowded camps with only thin tarps over them and no possessions or basic safety.

  • Five myths about Canada's immigration policiesElie Mikhael Nasrallah
    November 13, 2011

    There are few things Canadians like to stay away from discussing and debating: religion, politics and changes to the game of hockey. Well, you could add another untouchable topic: immigration. Is Canada losing control of its culture, heritage and future? As immigration continues to be central to our future, it is worth, I believe, discarding some misconceptions and misinformation about Canada's immigration policies and rules.

  • Jimmy Carter: 'Israelis' Policy Is to Confiscate Palestinian Territory'Elisabeth Braw
    December 2, 2012

    Israel and Gaza are again attacking each other, Syria is descending into civil war, four American diplomats killed in Libya: the Middle East is more fragile than ever. "Both sides should cease all hostilities," says former US President Jimmy Carter. "Israel should end its blockade of Gaza, and Western countries should work to facilitate reconciliation between Hamas and their Palestinian rival, Fatah. As long as Gaza remains isolated, the situation in and around Gaza will remain volatile."
