Don Sandberg on Rethinking the Reserve: Assessing native governance by polling the rank-and-file

The Aboriginal Governance Index (AGI) was the brainchild of the Frontier Centre for Public Policy, a Winnipeg-based think tank that has carved out a provocative niche on native issues — not only in educating the public at large, but also in broadening the dialogue about better policy within aboriginal communities.

Lorne Gunter on David Ahenakew: Shun the hate-merchants. But don’t jail them

David Ahenakew is a reprehensible individual. That is why many observers are applauding last Friday’s decision by the Attorney-General of Saskatchewan to retry him for hate crimes, after his 2005 conviction was recently overturned on technical grounds.

Privatizing Crown forests is worth exploring
by Elmer Derrick

Globe and Mail
January 25, 2008

Canada’s forestry-dependent communities need to be revitalized. Crippled by a seemingly interminable down cycle of the forest economy, they are in need of a fresh approach to break out of this morass, and the idea to privatize Crown forests is worthy of exploration.

Breaking the barriers to success for adult learners: Principles, policies and practices

February 5th, 2008
19th Annual PLA Conference
“BREAKING THE BARRIERS TO SUCCESS FOR ADULT LEARNERS: PRINCIPLES, POLICIES AND PRACTICES”

The Conference Planning Committee is preparing for the 19th Annual PIA Conference to be held at the Ramada Inn, Belleville, ON – Tuesday, May 27 to Friday, May 30, 2008 and presents this update.

This year’s theme acknowledges that while much progress has been made to improve services to adult learners there is much more to be done. In Canada we are still far away from an integrated approach to adult learning policy and practice that, if implemented could address a diversity of issues. Unfortunately there are many subtle and not-so-subtle impediments to success for adult learners – institutional barriers, fragmented and disconnected services and diverse funding mechanisms that vary from province to province, many of them ill suited to the needs and life circumstances of adult learners.
