Assimilation - A Successful Survivalist Programming
I would like my constitutional rights realized as being in existence by Ontario Works and Ontario Disability Departments of the Government. This has not been the case since December 2001, when I was accepted into OW. It is for this reason that I have a Human Rights Case. The last letter from OW is written such that it is their first recognition that I possess human/civil rights other than that of slave status to Ontario government sovereignty.
The Dominion - Dru Oja Jay
"Canada is giving away its ability to set health and safety standards on food that crosses the border, say several US and Canadian scientists. They refer to Bill C-27, which Parliament will vote on in the coming months if an election is not called."

Transparency in Drug Regulation: Mirage or Oasis?
AND e-Letter Response by Diane C Gorman, Health Canada.
The reality which forms the base of the article by Joel Lexchin and Barbara Mintzes makes moot any Health care professional honour code. Because to prescribe medical intervention based upon beliefs (dogma) in the matter of efficacy and safety - instead of evidence (transparency and independent over-sight of all the facts) based upon objective science about same - is without authority, complementarity, justifiability, nor honesty in advertising/editorial policy BUT it has total confidentiality of/by/for/with the for-profit Health care industry. Specific to the "Mental Health" industry this would necessarily include professional, institutional, Federal/Provincial government and corporate (PhRMA).
THE CANADIAN CORPORATE/STATE NEXUS IN HAITI
BY ANTHONY FENTON - Haiti-Progres, May 12, 2005
Haiti's de facto government will soon announce the appointment of Robert
Tippenhauer as its new ambassador to Canada... Should the Canadian government
accept Tippenhauer's credentials, it will mark Canada's clearest
official alignment with Haiti's right-wing elites.
Prior to the...ouster of democratically elected President
Jean Bertrand Aristide, Tippenhauer was Jamaica's honorary consul in
Haiti. His ideological leanings were apparent...when he
"resigned in protest against the decision by the Jamaican government to
host former President Jean Bertrand Aristide, which he reportedly
described as a 'slap in the face' to the Haitian people."
Comrade Gilles Duceppe
Under the leadership of Comrade Duceppe, the BQ has adopted a working class program as a left social democratic party, much more so than the mushy social democrats in the NDP. While sovereignty is their goal, it is the sovereignty of the CSN, which was the union Duceppe, was an organizer for and which has been one of the strongest supporters of Quebec nationalism.
Ever since Trudeau, the Liberals have had a vision of a Quebec within Canada, while the Parlimentary carreerists in the old Tory party and the NDP were weak sisters backing up the Liberal lead against the Quebec nationalists.
To hear Conservative Leader Stephen Harper, the former mouthpiece of the employers and bosses lobby, the National Citizens Coalition (folks who promote the idea of keeping Canada union-free), speak of the "NDP betraying workers" in their deal "with the devil" to support the Liberals budget is, well the kettle calling the pot black if we continue on with the cliches.
NEO LIBERALISM A FAILURE IN CANADA
"Public Policy wonks, both from the left and right, the soul of capitalism; the TD Bank, and Stats Canada all agree that for twenty boom years of capitalism in North America, Canadian workers still have yet to benefit.
Tax cuts have produced no measurable effect for the average Canadian family for twenty years. And in fact have contributed to the continuing immizeration of Canadian workers. When Jim Stanford of the Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) and the Chief Economist for the TD.Bank agree on this empirical fact, when will the Conservative right wing admit that their policies do nothing for us but lots for our bosses."
"All levels of government are claiming to support childcare, but our study
exposes the reality for working class women," explains Monica Urrutia.
Quality childcare is completely unaffordable leaving women to `make do'
their own by quitting work or dropping out of school, relying on extended
family including siblings, or even being forced to leave young children at
home alone. The lack of universal childcare is really an attack on women's
equality and right to development."

The NDP in parliment continue to be the wag that tailed the dog. While the party position at conventions is to support Quebec's right to soveriegnty the NDP MP's continue to align with the Liberals as Federalists. Stuck in the Broadbent/Lewis past they fail to see that they and the BQ share common social democratic policies.
SNC-Lavalin CEO says he doesn't know and has no way of finding out who uses all those fancy bullets they produce. Apparently, the way these things work is that SNC notices their sales are up last month and starts putting more bullets out on the shelves in hardware stores in Washington where anonymous people purchase them, presumably for dear hunting or target practice. Apparently, even when you buy those really big boxes of amo, the ones with 300-500 million bullets in them, they don't bother to ask your name so that they might send you a Christmas card or a thank you note.
"Last year, Arar commissioner Mr. Justice Dennis O'Connor appointed Ronald
Atkey as amicus curiae (friend of the court) at the Arar investigation. Mr.
Atkey -- a lawyer, former cabinet minister and first chair of the Security
Intelligence Review Committee -- was asked to test the federal government's
request to limit disclosure at the investigation on grounds of national
security. Civil-rights groups say Ottawa and the commission are limiting
disclosure too zealously. What follows is adapted from Mr. Atkey's
submissions to the commission on May 3."

Putting Food and Drug Company Profits Ahead of Safety

"For many on the left, the bill marks a significant step forward, clearing the way for queers to be fully accepted into society. Others argue that demanding such acceptance is more accurately viewed as capitulating to the cultural norms and institutions of a patriarchal capitalist society, and a step backward from the sexual radicalism that once characterized the movement for queer liberation. We should be knocking down pillars of the current social order, critics argue, not rapping on the system's doors, asking to be let in. Such a critique is powerful, and has the merit of keeping the broader goals of the movement for radical change in plain sight. It doesn't engage, however, at the level on which the debate is actually occurring."
