From warming water to shifting growing seasons, Ontario is already seeing the effects of climate change.

How Canada’s Indigenous Peoples rallied for constitutional recognition

It is now 40 years since the Trudeau Sr. government “patriated” Canada’s constitution, ending Britain’s vestigial control over changes in the country’s founding document, the British North America Act.

Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War: Stop the War in Ukraine

The undersigned: We profoundly condemn the military invasion led by the Putin regime in Ukraine, which has already left thousands of people dead and hundreds of thousands displaced, and which provokes a sharpening of the confrontation between imperialist blocs at the global level.

The US, Russia and Ukraine: Thinking Beyond the New Cold War and World War 3

Putin’s regime, unlike Franco, Mussolini, or Hitler, has a formidable nuclear arsenal. In this context, the contemporary world stands on the brink, facing extinction either through nuclear holocaust emanating from battle fields in Ukraine or from the ever-worsening climate crisis. Meanwhile, in our everyday lives, prices for food and petrol are skyrocketing…

A peace deal is possible: we all have a role to play

MOVING THE UKRAINE PEACE DEAL FORWARD In a recent exploration of the “contours of a negotiated solution,” Crisis Group offered some very good advice: Western governments should not aim for a complete, but likely unattainable, victory that includes a return to the pre-2014 status quo and war crimes investigations, let alone Russian President Vladimir…

The Belligerati

The defenestration of dignity and common sense may be among the lesser tragedies of war. But in late capitalism the cynical, the sinister and the stupid tend to be enfolded in the same apocalyptic drive. Consider, for a moment, recent gestures of solidarity with the people of Ukraine, currently suffering under Russia’s increasingly brutal assault…

NATO, Imperialism and the War

Russia’s brutal invasion of Ukraine seems to have caused some disorientation on the Left. For example, a left-wing website supported by some key leaders of the Stop the War Coalition complains about socialists who concentrate all their fire on Russia. But it is not really difficult to see why anti-war activists might do so at the present time. Russia…
