    In Ontario, the key problem in availability of staff in long-term care pertains to personal support workers (PSW's).

  • Who is Jesus?Reuel S. Amdur
    April 21, 2011

    Jesus has long been an enigma, a blank canvas on which people of different cultures and persuasions have drawn a likeness. In the West, we are all familiar with a fair-skinned, blue-eyed Jesus, but African Christians color him black, and Oriental Christians give his eyes the epicanthic fold. The different likenesses are, however, more than skin deep.

    "This government has turned into something nasty and mean," Peter Showler told an attentive audience at Ottawa's First Unitarian Congregation on April 18.

  • Canada: Who is an Antisemite?Reuel S. Amdur
    July 13, 2011

    While the authors of the report of the Canadian Parliamentary Coalition to Combat Antisemitism set out to combat the pernicious ideology and its practical outcomes, paradoxically they only help to perpetuate it, if not to exacerbate it.

  • Who are the terrorists?Reuel S. Amdur

    A bomb blast in Oslo. The first reaction-it must be Muslim extremists. But no, it turns out that Anders Behring Breivik is anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant, and an Evangelical Christian right-wing extremist. Why do Muslims come to mind first?

  • Harper's HypocrisyReuel S. Amdur
    August 10, 2011

    Back in 2006, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said, "I think the government of Canada, when a Canadian citizen is ill-treated and when the rights of a Canadian citizen need to be defended, I think it's always the obligation of the government of Canada to vocally and publicly stand up for that Canadian citizen. That is what we will continue to do." That was then and this is now. He was talking about the case of Huseyn Celil, a Uyghur from China who is a Canadian citizen and who served as an imam in Hamilton, Ontario.

  • We lost our war on AfghanistanReuel S. Amdur

    Canada has gone from success to success in Afghanistan. Too bad that it has lost. It has captured one area after another and defeated the Taliban in all the major encounters. No wonder our military leaders talk of the end of the Taliban being clearly in sight. Yet, the areas have a marked tendency to fall back into enemy hands when Canadian forces leave.

  • A new school year: Can we educate to prevent rioting?Reuel S. Amdur
    September 5, 2011

    The recent rioting, involving property destruction, arson, assaults, looting, and robbery, has raised questions about the morals of those involved.
