Black-out Black Mail in Ontario

PEJ News - C. L. Cook - The Indepedent Electricity System Operator (IESO) say a strike by workers at Hydro One has forced a shut-down at the Nanticoke power plant, reducing its output by half. This comes as Southern Ontario continues to suffer a severe heat wave and stifling humidity.

[update: June 29, 2005] Brian Robinson, the communications rep. for the striking Society of Energy Professionals chides that I've made several errors in this piece. His e:mail is included at the bottom of the story. OPG is Ontario Power Generation, not "Group" as reported here. Here's a link to latest developments in what looks to be a looming labour Battle Royale. - lex]

What the Supreme Court Really Said About Canada's Healthcare

Steven Shrybman - Sack Goldblatt Mitchell: The ruling is certainly a victory for the advocates of privatization and two-tiered health care, but it is far less significant than these forces claim.  If their challenge represented a full frontal assault on the principles of Canada ' s health care system, the Supreme Court ' s decision has dealt Medicare only a glancing blow. The following Q and A attempts to shed some light on what the Court really decided.

 Did the Supreme Court challenge the validity of the Canada Health Act? NO...

Long Term Sustainability of the Publicly Funded Health Care System and of Health Within A Prevention Regime- Joan Russow (PhD) - Global Compliance Research Project: The recent decision of the Supreme Court creates an immediate imperative to address key issues in health promotion and disease prevention. For too long the emphasis in Canada has been on remediation rather than on precaution and prevention. By ignoring precaution and prevention, the Canadian governments have contributed rather than resolve problems related to health and health care: exorbitant costs, untimely care, and untenable and unethical choices .

Basi & Virk, CanWest Cover-up?

On 30 May 2005 -- after the federal election and Paul Martin's Liberals resumed governing -- and after the B.C. Election and B.C. Liberals resumed governing -- David Basi and Bob Virk were once again called into court. British Columbians waited. That old tease, B.C. Supreme Court Associate Justice Patrick Dohm, might fully open the Search Warrants he authorized for the R.C.M.P. to raid the B.C. Legislature. Or he might set the trial dates for the two subjects of that raid: Basi and Virk. Or he might postpone the whole thing again.

Political leaders are managers lacking vision

I read today and I cannot find it, perhaps at Progressive bloggers a statement attributed to Justin Trudeau.  Trudeau is to have said this week, "Today's leaders are managers, they lack vision and passion." That quote is not exact and if any of you out there find it, please pass it along.

Democracy Watch on Secret 2005 Party Donations in Canada

The key point of Democracy Watch's analysis is that new donations system has many serious loopholes that allow wealthy interests to use money as a secret means of undemocratic, unethical influence over the Canadian federal government and federal political parties, as follows:

  • secret, unlimited donations to nomination race and election candidates are still legal as long as the candidates do not use the money for their campaign;
  • donations of volunteer labour do not have to be disclosed, allowing corporate and special interest lobby groups to make large, secret donations to parties, riding associations and candidates;
