Giving Labour more power within the capitalist system should be seen as a win for the Left, especially after decades of neo-liberal decay. If we are to progress as a society, building worker’s power within a strong intersectional, labour, and Indigenous coalition would be a great starting point. Change only comes from the streets.
Remember that the current vaccine passport system is an alternative to another lockdown situation. It is the opposite of a lockdown – lockdowns shut down society, the vaccine passport is an attempt to reopen society and get back to normal. The tiny minority of anti-vaxxers are the ones keeping this pandemic going; it’s time for them to get out of the way.
While confederate statues get bashed down in the south, Canada’s own architects of genocide and apartheid have also come to a crumbling demise. Statues of John A MacDonald and Egerton Ryerson have been defaced and torn down across Canada.
My opinion on this is very clear: this is a good thing.
Historically, vaccines have arguably been one of the biggest success stories of the human race – and the story of Covid-19 will be no different. Despite this, there is a relatively small (yet loud) class of people who would like to see us reach herd immunity through “natural infection” which would result in untold amounts of harm to Canadians. I’m looking at you, anti-vaxxers and supporters of the so-called Great Barrington Declaration.
With the university caring more about its reputation and money rather than its students, we are writing this article as a demand for help from external media and external voices to showcase this issue with the hope that the university now has an actual reason to listen to their students.
With the facts in front of us — with even further evidence that corporations overwhelmingly produce the majority of our global greenhouse gas emissions — it’s clear that responsibility for the effects of climate change is not universal like the Anthropocene narrative claims.
Despite Their Roots, The Proud Boys Shouldn’t Be The Center of Canada’s Far-Right Terrorism Discussion
The Proud Boys themselves are not Canada’s largest far-right terror threat. Many progressive bloggers, writers, journalists, and anti-hate watchdogs have had mixed reactions to the wording of Monday’s House motion that included designating The Proud Boys — McInnes’ pet project — a terrorist organization in Canada. Some are calling for further discussion and an alternate approach.
Many of us voted for Trudeau, giving him a majority government for four years. But since his 2015 legalization promise, Justin Trudeau has done little to help the generation that got him elected. He is losing the youth vote.
Reconciliation with First Nations has been described as many things: complex, difficult, and multifaceted. I’ve even seen it described as a “shitshow.” But is this really the case?
“The cure cannot be worse than the [virus] itself,” said Donald Trump back in March. It seems like Jason Kenny and Tyler Shandro have taken Trump’s words to heart. The dynamic between the two and Deena Hinshaw, Alberta’s Chief Medical Health Officer, echos the uneasy tension between Trump and Anthony Fauci.
In times of crisis, such as the current pandemic, the situation of the workers becomes even worse. Workers are left with a simple choice of either risking their lives to put food on the table for a minimum wage or being left without the means to sustain themselves.
Protests have erupted throughout Canada and the USA in response to all-to-familiar accounts of police brutality. One would think that maybe the police might start paying attention? Wrong. They’ll just punch you in the face.
The second wave of Covid-19 is here in Canada and many questions loom as to how the future of the pandemic will play out. One thing that is for certain, though, is that a new wave of hate has spread throughout Canada.
The American democratic experiment is stuck in gridlock. Donald Trump is a symptom of a much larger movement that has swept through Europe, Asia, South America, as well as Canada. We must safeguard our democracy.
There are glaring parallels between conservatism and modern conspiracy theories. With far-right ideologies on the rise and even promoted by the White House, this is a problem that must be taken seriously
