Bullet #1274: Wall: Sunshine Premier Makes History
by J. F. Conway | June 23, 2016
Saskatchewan Party leader Brad Wall has earned a major place in Saskatchewan's political history. On April 4 he broke the back of the NDP, the province's 'natural governing party' since 1944. Until Wall's first victory in 2007 the CCF/NDP ruled the province, suffering only two interruptions. Liberal Ross Thatcher defeated Woodrow Lloyd's CCF in 1964 and 1967, only to be crushed by Allan Blakeney's NDP in 1971.
What's New: EU referendum: how should the Left vote?
by John Hilary | June 22, 2016
On New Year’s Day 1973, the UK joined the European Union – or, as it then was, the European Economic Community (EEC). Two years later, in June 1975, a national referendum confirmed the UK’s membership. At some point before the end of 2017, the British people will again be given the chance to vote in a referendum on whether we wish to remain in the EU. So which way should the Left vote?

The mood among the 3,000 Bernie Sanders supporters meeting in Chicago McCormick Place was improbably optimistic past weekend, with many of the speakers proclaiming to cheering crowds that the movement has been victorious—even though Hillary Clinton, the presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party has received a majority of the popular votes and a majority of elected delegates and super-delegates, as well as the endorsements of President Barack Obama, Vice-President Joe Biden, and Senator Elizabeth Warren.

|Public Exposures: The Art-Activism of Condé + Beveridge (1976-2016)|
This multi-gallery survey spans the career of the political-art duo, from their rejection of the New York art scene in the 70s and move to Canada, where they've collaborated with unions, communities and artist-run centres, to a recent work about climate change and hockey. They originally adopted the staged-photo format to protect unionists who feared identification by management, but soon found the strategy allowed them to push their social justice message further. They've devoted their life's work to exploring the intersections of wage labour and creativity.
