Plenty To Criticize-Plenty To Celebrate
Contributed by JaredMilne on Thursday, July 21 at 18:23 (3,759 reads)
Yesterday, we celebrated Canada Day. For most people, Canada Day is a day to take pride in, to celebrate who we are as a country. However, more recently there have been harsh criticisms levied against past figures in Canadian history, particularly prime ministers like John A. Macdonald and Wilfrid Laurier. Critics have pointed out the way past historians often ignored or downplayed the negative aspects of their legacies, such as the “head tax” on Chinese immigrants, the discrimination against indigenous peoples, or the racist immigration hierarchy that favoured people from Western and Northern Europe over people from other parts of Europe or the world.

I'm writing this on the morning of Canada Day 2016, thinking about all the fascinating things I've read and the people I've met.

Non-Native Actions Have An Impact, Too
Contributed by JaredMilne on Thursday, June 09 at 18:35 (2,155 reads)
Indigenous issues have been all over the news, from the Attawapiskat crisis to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. There’s also the familiar calls for Indigenous people to “just get over it”, abandon their reserves and move to the cities. This is just the latest example of a trend that repeats itself in Canadian history, of Indigenous Canadians expected to be the only ones to take any responsibility for change, and accept all the responsibility for the problems that have come up. Apparently, it’s never the fault of the government or non-Native Canadians.

What Is The Right Amount Of Tax?
Contributed by JaredMilne on Thursday, May 12 at 18:30 (2,058 reads)
It’s tax time again in Canada, which makes it a good time to think about politicians’ comments on taxes. Many politicians, especially conservative ones, have talked about tax relief, offering all kinds of tax cuts and rebates for everything from fitness to children’s art programs. Oftentimes, they also guarantee that these tax cuts can be paid for without reducing frontline services or major programs. If anything, they also talk about other kinds of spending, whether taking the fight to ISIS in the Middle East, getting tougher on crime, and upgrading the military’s equipment.

Different Personas For Different Politicians
Contributed by JaredMilne on Thursday, April 14 at 18:20 (952 reads)
With the passing of Rob Ford in March 2016, many people commented on the powerful support he got from many Torontonians, which he dubbed “Ford Nation”. Over the six months since Justin Trudeau was elected Prime Minister, people have also commented on the strong support he continues to get from many Canadians, even with the challenges his government has faced. The support that Ford and Trudeau received makes for a very interesting comparison. Both men have enjoyed devoted support from many voters, but for different reasons.
