  • Review of Alison Weir's "Against Our Better Judgement: How the U.S. was used to create Israel""Karin Brothers
    June 8, 2014

    Alison Weir's short, powerful book documents hidden stories that have led to the major conflicts of the past century; understanding this history should help pave a path to peace in Israel/Palestine, and hopefully, to an American government that puts American interests first. Weir has written an accessible, myth-busting book that is meant to be widely read; it is tightly focused, with less than 100 well-referenced pages.

    When Pierre Karl Péladeau raised his fist and announced that he was running for the Parti Québécois because he wants Quebec to be a country, he forgot to add this: "My country includes Delaware." That is the tax haven where he hived off some of his corporate profits. At the individual level, Philippe Couillard deposited some of his earnings while working abroad in Jersey. Couillard, newly-elected Quebec premier, is a distinguished neurosurgeon who spent time working in Saudi Arabia.

  • It's 1984 again in Harper's Canada Reuel S. Amdur
    June 8, 2014

    Remember the controversy over the abolition of the long-form census? The Harper government was so concerned about the intrusive nature of the questions that it was abolished. Our privacy is so important that it trumped new businesses' need to have demographic information such as age and income in places that they want to locate. It is so important that the feds were prepared to sacrifice ability to develop policy based on sound information about changes effecting education and workforce participation of Aboriginals and immigrants. It was prepared to put up with a rush job on the short-form census resulting in language data that are simply useless. Nevertheless, the principle was clear: The government needs to keep its nose out of people's private affairs. In the words of former Aboriginal Affairs Minister John Duncan, "I can tell you that our government takes Canadians’ privacy very seriously." But we have a disconnect.
