    Good news from Africa: after two decades of bloody anarchy, Somalia is finally on the mend.

    March 8, 2018

    On February 9, 2018 Gerald Stanley was found not guilty of second-degree degree murder in the shooting death of Colten Boushie of Red Pheasant First Nations. Almost two weeks later, Raymond Cormier was found not guilty of second-degree murder in the death of Tina Fontaine. Both cases have drawn considerable attention in Canadian media due to the racial tension they have created between the Indigenous communities that Boushie and Fontaine were from, and the "Systems" and people in Canada that they feel have failed them.

Mansplaining is when a man explains a concept to a woman in a condescending way, assuming they don't have the capacity to understand that concept without a man's help.
