    It seems that, when governments decide that it is time for sacrifices to be made, the poor are called upon first. Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty followed this principle on his way out the door, leaving social assistance recipients with new burdens. He cut discretionary welfare funding to local governments.

    June 3, 2013

    The average cost of producing a single generic pill is less than ten cents. That is what people attending the "Rethinking Drug Coverage" conference in Ottawa held on May 24 and 25 were told.

    July 3, 2013

    On May 15, the blog "Window into Palestine" carried a story about a Palestinian-Canadian who found a strange government form on the internet.

For Palestinians born in the West Bank, the entry was "West Bank of Jordan-Jordan."

    July 24, 2013

    I recently had an article about the persecution of the Muslim Rohingya minority in Burma published in the Seventh Day Adventist magazine Liberty. The editor tacked a note at the bottom of the article noting that the Canadian government has recently created an Office of Religious Freedom.
