Donald D'Haene: What Obama and David Suzuki Have in Common
The presidential debate triggered flashbacks for me to February 8, 1989. Let me explain. That night, decades ago, another battle that then appeared to be of epic importance took place: a televised debate at Western University between psychology professor Philippe Rushton and David Suzuki.
J.J. McCullough: Media Bites: Can Columnists Agree on HIV?
2012-04-27-mediabitesreal.jpg You know what's not fun? AIDS. And you know what's even less fun than AIDS? People who have it, then have sex with you without telling. And you know what's the least fun of all? A bunch of stern newspaper editorials about the Supreme Court's recent decision that not disclosing that you suffer from AIDS before having sex can be legally permissible under certain circumstances.
Nick Hosseinzadeh: Redford, Not Clark, Needs To Take Lead On Enbridge
The criticism of B.C. Premier Christy Clark's strategy regarding negotiations over Enbridge's proposed Northern Gateway pipeline is unwarranted. Clark has been clear on what the province requires in order to move forward with construction of the pipeline in Northern B.C. while her Alberta counterpart has given her little to work with. Clark said herself, it's her job to fight for B.C. and our environment. She's absolutely right, and we should all be in her corner cheering her on.
Raymond Heard: My Memories of the Cuban Missile Crisis, 50 Years Later
Fifty years ago this month, the 13-day Cuban Missile Crisis confronted us with the very real possibility of a nuclear war. People wanted to forget the missile crisis. But we should always remember what happened 50 years ago -- as a sobering reminder of how easily humankind can stumble into apocalypse, if there are not wise leaders to stop at the brink.
Yoni Goldstein: The Youth Will Destroy Trudeau, Like Any Other Politician
There is the possibility that Justin Trudeau will galvanize young voters, but I have my doubts, and it has nothing to do with his political acumen or even his ability to one day to be prime minister. It has to do with the very young people he is aiming to woo. They will destroy Trudeau and there likely isn't a thing he can do about it. Today's youth are not programmed to believe in politicians, much less honour them -- political movements, yes, but not the men and women who sit in government, who travel across the land shaking hands and kissing babies. To say politicians don't resonate with young people is an epic understatement; the practice of being a politician seems completely nuts to them. It makes no sense at all.
