Bullet #1296: How Not To Fund Infrastructure
by Michal Rozworski | August 25, 2016
Recycling is supposed to be a good thing, so when the federal Liberals quietly announced that 'asset recycling' would be part of their strategy for meeting their much-ballyhooed infrastructure promises, not many eyebrows were raised. They should have been. Asset recycling is an obscure code word for selling our public goods for private profit. It's privatization by another name.
What's New: Canadian Greens vs U.S. Greens
by Yves Engler | August 24, 2016
As hard as it is to admit for a former junior hockey player who spends many hours writing at the neighbourhood Tim Hortons, some things are better in the USA. For example, comparing Green Party leader Elizabeth May to her American counterpart Jill Stein on foreign-policy issues puts Canada to shame. While Stein has articulated forthright criticism on various international issues, May spouts nationalist platitudes as often as she challenges unjust policies.

by Rafe Mair | August 24, 2016
This is the story of the death of our province’s once greatest institution, BC Hydro. Though the public power utility began its life under Socred Premier WAC Bennett in 1961, the story of its demise starts circa 2001, under the newly-minted Liberal administration of Gordon Campbell.

Bullet #1295: The Working Class: Saskatchewan's Political Orphan
by J. F. Conway | August 23, 2016
We all suffer from the absence of working class politics. We are smothered in the business-oriented, neoliberal 'consensus' instructing us to reconcile ourselves to 'the new reality' -- rollbacks in social welfare and universal publicly funded programs; huge tax cuts to business and the rich, driving up public debt and enriching finance capitalism; an end to secure employment and guaranteed benefits;
What's New: Saskatchewan: A special report on race and power
by Nancy Macdonald | August 22, 2016
How many Indigenous people are in positions of power in Saskatchewan? We surveyed 265 of the most powerful people in the province. The results are shocking.
What's New: World Social Forum report Day 2 -- reality check
| August 22, 2016
The World Social Forum started with a march of 10-20,000 people which I suspect was illegal for Montreal because it left on time. IJV has a table getting plenty of attention and encouragement from attendees, and 2 workshops tomorrow. We are meeting a lot of great people, and old friends.
