Canada's Glass House and Quebec's Charter Debate

Robin Philpot
September 15, 2013

The worst aspect of the Quebec's Charter debate is the smug, self-righteous, paternalist, finger wagging of English Canada and the English media in Quebec. Canadians don't realize that they live in a glass house and throwing stones can be dangerous. Self-examination and self-criticism might show that English Canada is a major part of the problem.

Canada has consistently and unanimously refused to accommodate Quebec's reasonable demands for respect and recognition for more than 50 years now. Never once has it looked back and questioned its self-appointed moral superiority. For instance, it did not hesitate to promote and then lionize its chosen French Canadian leader and send him into the fray to do the dirty work, which has included proclaiming War Measures in time of peace ...

Stop war threats against Syria

September 02, 2013

Obama was going to draw a red line across the throat of Syria. But, for the moment, the Go-it-alone ranger is having 2nd thoughts or perhaps 1st thoughts. The British Parliament nixed their Prime Minister's intention to attack Syria. The last time Parliament did that it was to end Lord North's desire to continue the war against American colonists who were thought to be lawless and uncivilized. Instead his Britannic Majesty settled for a new Prime Minister and the Treaty of Paris.

Syria is a sovereign state and cannot be faulted in its response to Washington. Obama, in line with recent predecessors, has defined America as the "indispensible" nation, an adolescent notion to dignify bullying. According to the doctrine of U.S. superiority the Syrian nation has no rights whic ...

  • Syria is on the front line against western sponsored terrorism.

    July 17, 2013

    Only weeks ago President of Egypt Mursi attended a rally of religious sectarians calling for the overthrow of Syria's government in the name of a particular school of Islam, wishing the curse of civil war on a sovereign state. Such wild talk should have been the reason to remove him.

    He waved the flag of the sectarians and urged young Egyptians to join the mercenary brigades financed by the Western powers and petroleum potentates. Mursi went further, he respectfully asked/begged the masters of western capital to seize Syrian airspace to enable the destruction of the Syrian Republic. O brotherhood leader Mursi did all this at the bidding of Qatar's absolute rulers, they had financed his (money takes all) election. But on the road to Damascus there came a problem.

  • Poem: Nurture or Shooter

    Dan Wilcox
    May 19, 2013

    Strapped in her seat in the cafe the baby puts her mother’s
    cellphone to her ear, pokes at keys, says “Hello”
    just what her mother does, grandma’s curls passed down
    in unbottled hues -- when her mother says “Thank you”
    for the check, she says “Thank you,” reaches for her Grandma’s
    out-stretched hand at the door. No one tells her what to do
    she watches, mimics, follows those she loves, does what they do.

    We should stop there -- this child has learned all she has to know.

    Don’t let some stranger show her
    to walk in step -- to say “Yes, Sir!” “No, Sir!”
    to lock & load -- to click on target
    to push the kill button without saying “Hello.”

    -- Dan Wilcox, Albany, NY ...
