TVO has today published a leaked details of the Ontario Government’s Housing Affordability Task Force Report, due to be published next week.
If the draft were implemented, it would fundamentally change development in Ontario cities. Roland Tanner argues there seem to be some very good, some potentially good, and some terrible recommendations.
Our co-host Joel MacLeod, had an opinion piece published in The Spec this morning. A link to it is here.
There is no party like a victory party that actually happens after a victory. Especially if the previous one was in the 1940s.
But hardly any Canadians take an active role in local party politics beyond voting. Doing so leaves parties exposed to special interest groups, wealthy donors and the small number of unrepresentative people who come forward to pick leaders and choose party direction. Is it any wonder we don’t feel they reflect our priorities?
Please see above for our reasons why we decided not to the post an episode this Canada Day. We invite you to read up on the Truth and Reconciliation report here to learn about the recommendations put forward by the commission here: http://trc.ca/assets/pdf/Calls_to_Action_English2.pdf For more information on Reconciliation please visit:
Statues are not history, and few things are more boring to historians than statutes of Victorian worthies … right until the moment they are pulled down.
Among the hysteria about “cancelling Canada’s history”, millions are learning important facts about Canada’s past. So is it history the statue-defenders want to protect? Or a mythological past that hides the brutal truths?
What might cost thousands or even millions in the US costs at most a couple of hundred bucks here in Canada.
Donor limits don’t take the impression of ‘cash for influence’ out of politics, they just make it much cheaper.
So how can we fund parties in a way that makes political finances above suspicion?
