From Occupy Ottawa, unedited: Friends, We’re pleased to inform you that Occupy Ottawa will hold a protest march and rally outside the Sheraton Hotel (O’connor and Albert) on Wednesday October 19th. We will be protesting a foreign policy event on “Canada-US political and economic integration”
Occupy Ottawa started as a solidarity movement in support the Occupy Wall Street movement. On Sunday, the movement defined itself as truly Canadian.
The writers, UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, Juan Méndez, & Pushcart Prize-nominated poet, Marjory Wentworth, invite us to take a stand for human rights.
Canada’s male-dominated corporate media is yet to give Andrea Horwath the respect she’s already earned, but that’s not pulling the Ontario NDP leader back.
“Unofficial political” websites are the new tools for smearing dirt on opponents. Both Tim Hudak’s Progressive Conservatives and Dalton McGuinty’s Ontario Liberals have them. PC: www.ontariansneednotapply.com and www.liberalreview.ca. Liberals: www.hazardoushudak.com and www.dirtyndp.ca Missing from the cheap, mud-slinging politics: Andrea Horwath and her Ontario New Democrats.
To Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak, new Canadians are “foreigners”. Lack of political experience? Anti-immigrant prejudice? Both.
We was robbed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Conservatives during the May 2 Federal election. The truth about the Canadian economy was withheld.
The Liberals pledge to offer $10 000 in tax credits to Ontario businesses that hire new immigrants is spot-on. It might just be the cure for a stubborn cancer called “Canadian experience”.
