    Former diplomat Gar Pardy has rallied an impressive group of prominent Canadians in appealing to the government to undertake an exchange with China of Meng Wanzhou, currently held on an extradition request from the United States, for Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig, two Canadians seized by China in retaliation. What Pardy proposes is a low-ball offer.

  • Netanyahu and BismarckReuel S. Amdur
    October 5, 2020

    Binyamin Netanyahu is a Jewish Bismarck. He has combined a malicious cunning with a wilful strategy and effective tactics to accomplish his imperialist aims. At one point, he promised that as long as he was prime minister of Israel there would never be a Palestinian state. So far, he has kept his word.

    Queen's University professor of political philosophy Will Kymlicka identified two elements in racism, racist stereotypes and the view that "the others" are not really part of "us."

  • Trudeau talks toughReuel S. Amdur

    Prime Minister Trudeau has decided to get tough with China, but the timing is off. The time to get tough is after our four (not two!) political prisoners are back home and our four prisoners in China sentenced to death for drug offenses have their sentences reduced. Getting tough will simply irritate the Chinese leadership. In retaliation they may begin to execute the drug offenders.

    It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in Toronto. And throughout most of the world, at least some part of Christmas will be in the air, on the street or hidden in the heart. Christmas is truly global.

  • Lent for our presentRev. Graham E. Morbey
    March 16, 2011

    When we share the premise that the God who is referred to in the texts of the Abrahamic faiths is essentially the same, then we are speaking of billions of people who, amid the great diversity within their own and between each other's traditions, share a great mystery: a God who claims not only to reveal himself to Jew, Christian and Muslim but also to every human being.

  • On the meaning of RamadanRev. Graham Morbey
    September 7, 2010

    A few days into Ramadan, I returned a keyboard and mouse I was having difficulty with to the store where I bought it. The pleasant young man who served me and did the paper work for the return looked to me like he might be Muslim. I put him to the test as I was leaving the store by asking him if it would be okay if I wished him a happy Ramadan.
