Bullet #1120: How UNITE Took on the Fast Food Companies Over Zero Hour Contracts and Won!

by Mike Treen | May 22, 2015

Workers in the fast food industry in New Zealand scored a spectacular victory over what has been dubbed 'zero hour contracts' during a collective agreement bargaining round over the course of March and April this year. The campaign played out over the national media as well as on picket lines. The victory was seen by many observers as the product of a determined fight by a valiant group of workers and their union, Unite.

What's New: Scottish Left Project

| May 21, 2015

Scotland needs a new citizens' politics. The days of a professional political class running our lives are numbered. Hundreds of thousands of citizens in Scotland want radical change and their voices must be heard. Let's talk, lets act, and lets work together to ensure that at 2016 there is a co-ordinated socialist challenge engrained in the communities and campaigns who are at the forefront of changing Scotland.

What's New: Selling Hydro One

by Paul Kahnert | May 21, 2015

After announcing the possible sale of Hydro One, Premier Wynne, on March 10, went on the record in the Globe and Mail and said, "whatever we do, we are going to control prices. We are going to make sure that the regulatory regimes that will protect people in this province stay in place." She has repeated that promise in the media several times since.

Bullet #1119: A Disaster Waiting to Happen: Expanding the U.S.-led ISIS War to Other Countries

by Gregory Shupak | May 20, 2015

According to a 29 April report in The New York Times, leaders from the U.S.-led coalition at war with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) will meet in the coming weeks to consider broadening the mission to other countries. At present, the Obama administration is attempting to secure congressional support for a measure that would authorize expanding the war to such nations as Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Libya, Tunisia, and Yemen.

Bullet #1118: Dissecting the Failure of Soviet 'Socialism'

by John Riddell | May 19, 2015

In current discussions of twenty-first century socialism, the work of Michael Lebowitz has a unique merit: it is rooted in the experience of Cuba and Venezuela, where efforts in recent decades to move toward socialism have been the most vigorous. Quotations from Che Guevara and Hugo Chávez set the tone.

Bullet #1117: Shaking Off the Part-Time Blues

by Tracy MacMaster | May 18, 2015

We've all followed the news that part-time, insecure employment is growing. I work at an Ontario college as a full-time library technician. Every day I work side by side with part-time employees whose jobs are the same as mine, but whose working conditions are dramatically different. Part-time workers in Ontario colleges do many different jobs -- some are long-time support staff, teachers or student workers -- but all have one thing in common -- they work without many of the standard protections Ontarians enjoy.

What's New: The Bitter Sweet Result the Polls Missed Completely

by Colin Fox | May 16, 2015

In the end the polls got it wrong, badly wrong. And all the commentators who placed so much faith in them looked foolish. There was no hung Parliament. No horse-trading between Westminster parties, no weeks of instability before a coalition Government was formed. The Tories thumped Labour and won a clear majority. The polls did at least get it right in Scotland.

twinkle starForum: Carbon Markets and Neoliberal Capitalism

Carbon Markets and Neoliberal Capitalism
In April it was announced that Ontario would be joining Quebec in implementing a cap and trade system on carbon emissions. While the Ontario government has presented this development as a positive step for the climate, critics of cap and trade point out that the mechanism often does not lead to lower green house gas emissions. Instead, it creates another market to commodify nature and allows corporations to continue profiting from environmental destruction for a small financial fee.

Please join us to hear an overview of the development of cap and trade systems, their track record in other parts of the world, an assessment of the Ontario plan, and ideas on other avenues we could be exploring to reduce emissions and limit climate change.

Guest Speaker:
* Romain Felli is a senior researcher in political science at the University of Geneva, Switzerland and is currently a visiting fellow at York University. He works on environmental governance and the political economy of climate change.

The talk is free. The space is accessible by mobile ramp upon request in advance. Washrooms are downstairs and not accessible, unfortunately.
