What's New: The 2015 Federal Budget: Not a real seniors' budget

by John Anderson | April 28, 2015

The recent April 21 federal budget has been touted by many as 'the seniors' Budget' and many have praised the 'wins' in the budget for seniors. However, is this really the case? I would submit that most seniors benefitted very little from this budget. First of all, let's look at what was not in the budget for seniors.

Bullet #1110: Iran's Nuclear Deal: Escape from Crisis

by Araz Bağban | April 27, 2015

What's New: Billions Forgone: The Decline in Alberta Oil and Gas Royalties

by Jim Roy | April 26, 2015

Alberta introduced new royalty formulas in 2009, expecting to collect an additional $2-billion per year in royalties. The result, however, was not what was expected. Instead of collecting an additional $10-billion over the following five years, total royalties collected went down by $13.5-billion. What caused this $23.5-billion difference between expectations and reality? Was it bad luck, bad management, or bad information?

What's New: Budget 2015: A tale of austerity past, present and future

by Michal Rozworski | April 24, 2015

I've been banging the drum of 'slow-motion austerity' for a while and little in the 2015 federal budget suggests any change from the pattern of death by a thousand cuts. This budget is another is a series of unspectacular austerity budgets. Taken together, however, the cuts rapidly add up and budgets become more remarkable for the tenacity with they've made us pay to get to the present.

Bullet #1109: The Armenian Genocide: An Open Wound

by Sungur Savran | April 24, 2015

On April 24, 1915, hundreds of Armenian intellectuals, politicians and community leaders were rounded in Istanbul by the Ottoman state, to be subsequently sent to exile from which most never returned. This was the signal that set off a chain of events that ended in a tragedy the like of which has rarely been witnessed in the annals of modern history.

Protest: Confront Barrick Gold

Every year, Barrick Gold gathers with their major shareholders and board of directors at their Annual General Meeting in downtown Toronto. And every year, we gather to support campaigns for justice, accountability, and a future for communities directly impacted by their mines.

This company is responsible for the deaths, rapes, and abuse of people who have the misfortune of living next to their mines, and the destruction of these peoples' environments. Meanwhile, Barrick's Advisory board and board of directors includes some of the most prominent and corrupt political figures of our time.

This year, we will be joined by Jethro Tulin, executive officer of the Akali Tange Association and Porgera Alliance. For the past decade, Jethro has been leading an international campaign against Barrick for killings and rapes by mine security. Just this month, teamed up with US-based lawfirm EarthRights International, to win fair compensation for 14 victims of abuse at the mine. But their struggle continues, as there are far more victims and the community seeks the long-term solution of resettlement.

Come for music, speeches, street theatre, and food... but most of all, come to support and amplify the voices of communities affected by Barrick around the world. | Facebook event
