Canada: 33 Excellent reasons to Defeat the Harper Tories

Original source: People’s Voice (Canada)

Yes, we know there are hundreds of excellent reasons to banish the Conservatives to political oblivion. But we only have one page for this list…

1. The Conservatives have expanded Canada’s role in the bloody military occupation in Afghanistan, which is now extended until at least 2011. To date, 97 Canadians and thousands of Afghans have died in this tragic war, which has cost Canadian taxpayers an estimated $8 billion.

On Stage: Agokwe – Eye Weekly

On Stage: Agokwe

BY Rea McNamara September 29, 2008

It’s appropriate that the trickster — an archetype that has long blurred the lines of gender and sexuality — anchors this tale of star-crossed love between two teenage rez boys. As one of six characters in Waawaate Fobister’s one-man show, the part-raven, part-campy emcee Nanabush gleefully cavorts on stage and lures the audience into the two-spirited perspective, taking this personal monologue into biomythographical (a term coined by poet Audre Lorde) territory.

Creation of Nunavut: 1999

Thursday, Sep. 25, 2008

On April 1, 1999, the new territory of Nunavut was born, finally making the controversial dream of the Northwest Territories’ Inuit a reality. It meant the Inuit gained self-rule and control over their own institutions. This was the result of years of lobbying Ottawa and numerous plebiscites overwhelmingly in favour of self-determination. But along with the territory come the challenges: combating suicide, reversing assimilation and regaining a sense of identity.
