What's New: Why Harper's wrong to drag Canada into expanded Iraq War

by Jahanzeb Hussain, Derrick O'Keefe | October 20, 2014

In recent days, the usual pundit-hawks of Canadian politics have reached a fever pitch in their support of Harper's plan for Canada to participate in the new US-led bombing of Iraq. Their moral indignation always dutifully laser-focused on wherever the Pentagon is pointing its guns, the pundit-hawks never have to account for the evident disasters left in the wake of the past Canadian military interventions they championed in Afghanistan, Haiti and Libya.

What's New: Where's The Funding for Ontario's Universities?

| October 20, 2014

Every year, Ontario's Universities receive hundreds of millions of dollars in public funds, but aren't required to disclose how or where those dollars are spent! While class sizes continue to grow, campus facilities go unmaintained and equipment grows ever more dated, hundreds of University administrators earn huge salaries and outrageous perks!

What's New: Global Inequality Reaches Levels Not Seen in Nearly 200 Years

by Deirdre Fulton | October 20, 2014

Global income inequality has returned to levels recorded in the 1820s -- when the Industrial Revolution produced sizable wealth gaps between the rich and poor -- according to a new report released Oct. 2nd by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

What's New: Socialist Register 2015: Transforming Classes

| October 19, 2014

This 51st annual Socialist Register completes the investigation of class formation and class strategies on a global scale begun with last year's volume. Deploying an understanding of class as an historical social process -- rather than an abstract sociological category or statistical artifact -- the essays here investigate the concrete ways that working classes are being made and remade in the struggles against neoliberalism, austerity and authoritarian governments.

Books: Why we need to win the battle over the tar sands

review by Brad Hornick | October 18, 2014

As our governments willingly unleash unprecedented destruction upon the earth through the promotion of extractive industries, and growing mobilizations of climate activists challenge climate emergency, I am reminded of a cautionary warning: "the Owl of Minerva takes flight at dusk."

What's New: Canada more involved in new Iraq war than previously reported

by Anthony Fenton | October 18, 2014

The frenzy of debate surrounding Canada's role in the military campaign against ISIS is missing one key ingredient: Ricochet has learned that our troops are already involved in the war effort, and will continue to be regardless of the decision made by Parliament.

Bullet #1048: Cacouna, Couillard and the Ties that Bind

by Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois | October 17, 2014

It's an evening like any other. The first item on the Téléjournal is about the controversial Cacouna oil port project. The journalist speaks to citizens in favour of and opposed to the project. Then the spokesperson for TransCanada, the project's sponsor, appears onscreen. His talking points aren't particularly noteworthy, but his face is strangely familiar.

What's New: Ceasefire Agreements Do Not Address Key Issues in Ukraine

| October 16, 2014

Sociologist Volodymyr Ishchenko says the Ukrainian civil war has led to popular mobilization around anti-Russian nationalism instead of the major socioeconomic issues facing the country.

: Community Picket at Kanata's Canada Post depot

On Monday October 20, join with Ottawa residents for a community picket of the Kanata Canada Post depot. All are welcome. Brings placards and signs.

October 20 marks the day that door-to-door mail delivery in Kanata will be officially eliminated for nearly 8,000 homes, and in 11 other towns and neighbourhoods in Canada. It will be the first day that mail is delivered to new Community Mail Boxes. Barrhaven and Orleans are scheduled to lose home delivery in 2015, and all Canadians will lose home delivery by 2019 - if nothing is done.
