In the news

Change is afoot. Something new and exciting is happening in feminism and it's about children and their care […] In work-family balance terms, it is about parents -- men and women -- and workers. It is about people who have a responsibility to care for children, elderly parents or family members with serious disabilities, and people who need and want to work. It is about the way we valorize paid work and undervalue care-giving.
Who will really be setting the agenda if the NDP form the next government? Will you [...] be able to cajole the NDP into becoming a more credible, serious-minded, progressive party that shares the values of most Canadians and supports the policies you advocate? Or will it be the opposite: that the less sober elements of your party, with their ill-considered forms of radicalism [...] will eventually win out over your position?

John Harnad, an open letter to NDP leader Thomas Mulcair

I think for Concordia to say ‘We are strongly opposed to sexual violence and we are going to work together to combat it, with education at the centre of that’, that ought to give families comfort. I don’t see this as having a negative effect on Concordia. I see it as having a positive effect. We are expressing a set of values that I think are fundamental.
Même si on fait référence au nom, la poutine n’est plus un plat absolument québécois. Parce que c’est impossible de pointer l’origine absolue d’un plat. Est-ce qu’on a volé la poutine du chip butty des Anglais (un sandwich fait de sauce brune, de frites et de beurre) qui ressemble beaucoup à notre poutine ?
