  • A Muslim woman's tragic death in MontrealThe Canadian Charger
    February 18, 2014

    Writing in the Toronto Star, Humera Jabir, a law student, commented on the difference in how French and English media treated the death of Naïma Rhaouity, a Moroccan immigrant who died tragically in the Montreal métro. The exact cause of death is not precisely known, but it appears that either her hijab or some other piece of clothing caught in the escalator mechanism, dragging her down and then catching her hair in the mechanism as well, chocking her to death.

  • Harper offers false choice for Middle East peaceMorgan Duchesney
    February 18, 2014

    Inspired perhaps by the fading echoes of George W. Bush; Stephen Harper has presented Canadians with a false choice on Middle East peace: either voice "absolute, non-negotiable belief in Israel" or be declared an anti-Semite. Stephen Harper refuses to be a real friend to the Israelis in the sense that he excuses their more objectionable behaviour for the sake of political support, business deals and misplaced guilt.

  • The lucky country, Part 1/4Dr. Mohamed Elmasry
    February 18, 2014

    In a virtual visit to Australia before embarking on my recent tour of the country, I consulted four classics by four well known Australians; Alan Moorehead's The Fatal Impact, Patrick White's The Vivisector, Donald Horne's The Lucky Country, and Colin Roderick's Henry Lawson. I also watched two Australian films; Rabbit-Proof Fence (2002) and Australia (2008) - more about these two historical dramas in part 4.

    February 18, 2014

    You can reach and touch the soul of Australia by reading Henry Lawson's poems. My three favorites are: The Star of Australasia, The City Bushman and Second Class Wait Here - all written in the late 1800s. Here I share the first one because of its beauty and historical significant.

    Thanks to Alan Moorehead I now know about a great Australian woman; Daisy May Bates (1859 - 1951). Moorehead in his 1966 classic The Fatal Impact talked about her life and her writings with a great admiration.

    In keeping with his time-worn - and increasingly tiresome - mondus operandi, Prime Minister Harper responded to concerns about the oil sands development, expressed recently by rock legend Neil Young, by skillfully changing the subject and attacking the messenger of the bad news.
