Politics and its Discontents: Pensee Du Jour

We returned from Cuba yesterday morning around 4:00; without an optimal amount of sleep thus far, complicated by an intestinal bug I probably picked up from the buffet, I have not yet quite recovered from our island holiday. Nonetheless, I hope to be back up and running (perhaps an unfortunate choice of words) by tomorrow. ...

Politics and its Discontents: This And That

The start of a new week inspires me to look back on the one past; thanks to an array of editorial cartoonists, it was a week not kind to our outgoing (one hopes) prime minister: Government for all Canadians, not just the wealthy, offers this intriguing clip from the past. Keep your eyes on the ...

Politics and its Discontents: Harper Under Seige

Once more, editorial cartoonist Graeme MacKay scores a solid bullseye. As does Corrigan over at The Star: And let’s not forget Star readers: Since the post-2008 Great Recession, Stephen Harper’s primary focus on energy (oil/gas) economic action strategies have painted our economic flexibilities into a corner. Now we find our transnational economic drivers near exhausted. ...

Politics and its Discontents: Be Careful What You Wish For

Despite the polls currently showing majority support for Canada’s joining in the war against ISIS, the Prime Minister may find that its enthusiasm for such futile adventurism is short-lived. Perhaps, after the next election, Mr. Harper will find that he has some time for that long-deferred fishing trip? H/t The Globe and Mail Recommend this ...

Politics and its Discontents: Scrutinizing the NDP

I am well past the age where I expect very much from our politicians, especially given the current level of disengagement among the Canadian electorate; because of that disengagement, the notion of electoral accountability has become merely a quaint and rather remote ideal. While I hate to admit it, for me the practice of voting, ...
