What's New: Canada at war for 13 years

by Glenn Greenwald | October 25, 2014

In Quebec on Monday, two Canadian soldiers were hit by a car driven by Martin Couture-Rouleau, a 25-year-old Canadian who, as The Globe and Mail reported, "converted to Islam recently and called himself Ahmad Rouleau." One of the soldiers died, as did Couture-Rouleau when he was shot by police upon apprehension after allegedly brandishing a large knife. Police speculated that the incident was deliberate, alleging the driver waited for two hours before hitting the soldiers, one of whom was wearing a uniform.

What's New: John Tory and the dangerous logic of strategic voting

by Michael Laxer | October 24, 2014

Heading into the final days of Toronto's municipal election we are faced with the sad reality that it seems that two right wing candidates are the front-runners for Mayor. Olivia Chow's campaign, which started with such great promise and was well ahead in the polls initially, has fizzled out terribly and its own logic of presenting itself as the only "winnable" alternative to Ford, as it did for many months, has come back to haunt it.

What's New: Gaza and the West Bank: Israel's two approaches and Palestinians' two bleak choices

by Saeed Rahnema | October 24, 2014

The areas now known as the West Bank and Gaza, despite geographic differences, were once similar in social, cultural and economic terms. But through a long process of one occupation after another, they were set apart and differentiated. Israel's recent incursion in Gaza follows a pattern of harsher policies of suppression, compared to its counterpart to the East, after the two territories were created in 1948.

What's New: Reflections on a violent day in Ottawa

by Matthew Behrens | October 23, 2014

I often find it hard to feel empathy for Prime Minister Stephen Harper. But when I saw the grim picture of him talking on the phone following the end of his confinement in the locked down House of Commons yesterday, I sensed in him a vulnerability he rarely exhibits. Harper, like his fellow MPs, Parliamentary staff, media, visitors and children in the downstairs daycare, had likely hunkered down behind locked doors.

What's New: Spectre of NAFTA Investor-State Challenge Looms over New Brunswick Fracking Moratorium

by Brent Patterson | October 23, 2014

On September 22 the people of New Brunswick voted clearly and decisively against fracking. They defeated the incumbent government that was backing (and was backed by) the fracking industry and elected a government that promises to implement a moratorium against fracking.

The Maidan Uprising and Civil War in the Ukraine: Questions for the Left
Last year's events marked not only a turning point in Ukraine's history. It also posed a number of difficult questions for progressive movements and left critical theory. Volodymyr Ishchenko, a sociologist and leftist commentator, will present his perspective on the Ukrainian Maidan and the ongoing civil war. The presentation will discuss questions of revolution, nationalism, fascism, imperialism and the strategy which has been raised in political and academic discussions in and around the Ukraine.

Volodymyr Ishchenko is a sociologist studying social protests in Ukraine. He is the deputy director of the Center for Social and Labor Research, a member of the editorial board of Commons: Journal for Social Criticism and LeftEast web-magazine, and a teacher at the Department of Sociology in the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy.
