Toronto City Councillor Joe Mihevc thinks the TTC has a problem -- and that problem is all those dastardly fare evaders who are allegedly ripping the fine city of Toronto off! Mihevc went on TV to state: “I take the streetcar virtually every day on St. Clair. I notice the number of people boarding on the back door and I do wonder whether some of them are getting a free ride,” Mihevc told CP24 on Friday afternoon.

The U.S.-led war on terror which began Sep. 11, 2001, has left at least 1.3 million people dead—mostly civilians—in 12 years in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, a 101-page report revealed. The report, called “Body Count,” written by 1985 Nobel Peace Prize winners Physicians for Social Responsibility and Physicians for Global Survival and International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, criticizes the mainstream media and the United States and its allies for grossly and intentionally underestimating death tolls in the three countries.
What's New: De Beers' Colonial Plunder in Attawapiskat
by Jay Watts | April 20, 2016
In 1995, a report issued as part of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples called suicide “one of the most urgent problems facing aboriginal communities." 22 years later, Canada’s ongoing colonial project is still taking a staggering and gruesome toll on the health and lives of First Nations. In Attawapiskat, a community of close to 2,000, there were 11 suicide attempts last Saturday, on top of 100 suicide attempts since last September.
Bullet #1249: Crisis in Brazil
| April 20, 2016
Since the 1980s, Brazil's Workers' Party has been one of the largest political parties of the left in Latin America. It has held power at the federal level in Brazil, in coalition with other parties, since January 2003, and figured prominently as one of the central representatives of the ‘pink tide’ running against neoliberalism in Latin America. But just as the pink tide has been fracturing, from internal challenges in some cases and electoral reaction in others, a deep institutional crisis is consuming the PT government of Dilma Rousseff and, indeed, exposing political rot across the state institutions.
What's New: A Socialist Case for Leaving the EU
by Neil Davidson | April 19, 2016
Faced with the impending referendum on British membership of the European Union (EU), and the reactionary arguments which dominate on both sides, socialists might be forgiven for echoing Mercutio’s dying cry in Romeo and Juliet of “a plague o’ both your houses” and opting for abstention. It is certainly true that the radical left cannot join either of the highly fragmented “official” camps, both of which espouse anti-working class politics of one variety or another.

It's clear that the climate is changing. The Paris Agreement on climate change brought together 195 nations representing virtually the entire planet in what many understood was the last chance to achieve a framework agreement that might have a chance to keep climate change within reasonable bounds that would not radically destabilize the planet and human civilization along with it.

|: Marx in Soho|
Howard Zinn’s acclaimed one-man play Marx in Soho, published in 1999 and performed around the world, offers a compelling portrait of one of the modern era’s most influential thinkers. Karl Marx returns to tell stories about his family, his activism, and his writing career, and to dispel myths and misinterpretations that have emerged around his ideas. "I'm not a Marxist," he insists, yet he speaks forcefully but intimately about the social and economic inequalities that continue to plague western society. Humorous, wistful, and passionate in defence of the oppressed, Zinn's Marx is an inspiring figure to spend an evening with. Starring Jeff Bate Boerop and directed by John Ball, this production has had two successful runs in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
