Phil interviews Barbara Isherwood who recently returned from the 2005 Venice Biennale. Ms. Isherwood, a writer on visual arts and CIUT staffer, discusses the 110 year history of this grandfather of international arts exhibitions. The 2005 Biennale included the works of over 400 artists in 109 separate exhibitions. One highlight was the guerrilla girls exhibit 'reinventing the "f" word - feminism'.
Phil Conlon talks to lawyer David Jacobs about the Supreme Court of Canada decision on the deportation of Leon Mugesera to Rwanda. The Supreme Court unanimously overturned the decision of the Federal Court of Appeal that had found the allegations against Mugesera to be without foundation. Jacobs points out that the Federal Court of Appeal thoroughly analysed Mugesera's speech and declared that it was not a speech calling for genocide or the killing of Tutsi's. The Federal Court of Appeal also ruled, after a thorough hearing, that the witnesses against Mugesera were clearly biased, and their allegations were not believable.
Jacobs notes that the Supreme Court did not overturn the findings of the Federal Court of Appeal, but instead ruled they should not have investigated the facts. By "trying to write history and law with the same pen" the Supreme Court gets neither correct.
