Privilege

By Tope Babalola  We need to talk about privilege for a second. I think this word has taken on a completely new meaning in recent years, and not necessarily in the best way. Depending on who you talk to, the word ‘privilege’ can illicit a reactionary and defensive response. In some the word may conjure

Afghanistan, Where Did the Truth Go?

By Ubaldo Daverro  Here we are, almost five months after the last American solider hastily departed Afghanistan, the ‘graveyard of empires’ and wondering where did the truth go?  Aside from the utter failure of Washington’s 20-year invasion and occupation in ‘fighting terrorism,’ what has the world learned about the Afghan debacle? The world has learned

The Reality of Systemic Racism

By Fraser Turnbull  We've all heard it. At a dinner, a cookout or in an office. "There is no such thing a systemic racism." Those attempting to be contrarian love to tout that line of thinking as a means of being quasi-intellectual, almost showing off their ability to fit out. Remarkably, Tim Scott, the African

Oscar Picks for 2022

By Riel Flack After another depressing year of theatre’s being closed, this covid Megatron virus running ramped, and Marvel’s capitalistic sensibilities taking over and ruining the essence of good cinema-I present you films that offer a glimmer of hope, which also happen to be my Oscar picks for 2022:    Best Picture: Belfast  This semi-autobiographical

Women’s Tennis Embracing Inclusion

By Freddie Brown When teenagers Leylah Fernandez and Emma Raducanu met at centre court to touch rackets (thanks to COVID-19) at the end of the 2021 U.S. Open Finals, the two unseeded teenagers were part of an historic moment in Women’s Tennis. Fernandez, a 19 year-old Canadian, and 18 year-old Raducanu from Britain (who won

How to ‘Hide’ a War—Fight it in the Open!

By Ubaldo Daverro To hide a war, fight it in the open.  First, be sure the principal protagonist is an invaluable friend of the United States with loyal, regional allies.  Second, make sure the principal victims are part of a much-maligned ethno-religious group and finally have western governments and the mainstream press support the United

We Got the Goldmine, Todays Students Get the Shaft.

By Barbara A Having watched proudly as my only child steams towards graduation after four years of undergrad followed by a very intense post-grad program, I have begun to reflect on the journey that got her there. That trip has been filled with ups and downs- my bank account was up, and now it is

MAGA North

By Fraser Turnbull The recent Canadian election was a bit of a yawner. Even for political junkies who mainline polls like addicts running for their next fix, this one was relatively sedate and lacked fire. Sure, there were moments that caught one’s attention, but there were really no Mulroney/Turner debate knockouts or Stanfield dropped footballs.

Titane Review 

By Riel Flack An attempt to make complete sense of Julia Ducournau’s new intense body horror Titane would be all too perplexing. It’s one of those films where after you watch, you simply must accept its enigmatic nature and allow yourself to say, “Not sure wtf I just watched…but I liked it”. In summary, Titane

Smaller Government? De-regulation? Show Me!

by Fraser Turnbull   As I watched the tragic news from Miami, where a building collapsed on itself killing as many as 140 people, my horror gave way to rage. It is a rage not necessarily directed at those that were responsible for slip-shod maintenance or construction. No- it was reserved for those whom I
