Equality? It would never have gone this far if the victims were the average women of Canada. And it certainly would not have been tolerated if the victims were the wives, daughters, or mistresses of billionairs.
This has been known and well known for many years now. And nothing whatever has been done.

It doesn't matter when the crash starts. Whenever it might be, we can safely assume that oil companies and others will have prevented any attempt to deal with it.

I had returned to Montreal just days before Tiananmen Square. In fact, in those days, I had been in Beijing. And as I followed the news, I did not regret leaving at all.
I broke the news to a colleague who was an ardent communist. He was shatterred.
He need not have been. Chinese communism was fading. In fact, one of my Hong Kong students already had become a promising capitalist in 'communist' China. And today, he is a major capitalist in that country.
The more things change, the more they are the same.

In the viciousness of its government and it's capitalists, Britain, even today's, resembles the worst behaviour of the United States. Indeed, the United States IS simply an extension of the worst features of the British Empire.

To add to that, there's the American military record since 1945. Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Laos, Cambodia.... it has been brutal with as a bonus, a heavy use of chemicals and a strong bent for murdering civilians and children. But it's military record has not been impressive.
I hope this report turns out to be correct.

Why one earth should private schools get subsidies? We supply public schools for all. If the rich want to give their children The things that most children cannot have, they should pay for them . After all, they are the rich ones.
But all over the western world, it is common to subsidize schools for rich kids.

If the public schools are not good enough, then we should spend more money on them,  not starve them. That money we give to private schools would be far better spent on all children.

Interestingly, it is rare to find prominent American politicians who served in the military. Trump is fond of shaking hands with soldiers, and praising them in his tweets. But he was never one of them - though he would have fit into several wars..
Bush Jr. was a draft dodger who spent his war in Texas (with daddy's help).
I once met the sons of one of Montreal's richest men. They had been drafted for WW2 - and were immediately posted to offices of the Battle Front of Washington, D.C.

This is not rare. It has been true of our mass media since the late nineteenth century. They lie constantly - according to the wishes of their very rich owners.
When I lived in New Brunswick, I thought the irving press as bad as it could get. But now I live in Ottawa and have Canada's National Post....

Wow! Just 2800 years. That will create a  hell of a lot more jobs than pumping oil will. Of course, it will be very, very expensive. In fact, it would be cheaper just to hand over Alberta to the U.S.
Right now!

Well,  I'm very  pleased to see Canada playing such a leading role as the item below indicates. But I can't help wondering why a country the size of Canada is playing such a leading role. Don't other (and bigger) countries worry about women's rights?
