Indigenous People in Canada: We Need to do Better

Earlier this month, the Canadian Justice System failed not only the late Colten Boushie and his loved ones by allowing his killer to walk free; they also failed the indigenous population. Gerald Stanley, a 56-year-old farmer in Saskatchewan, was acquitted by the jury of the charge of second-degree murder of 22-year-old Boushie, a young Cree man from the Red Pheasant First Nation reserve. Indigenous people nationwide and their supporters are left to mourn the loss of not only Boushie but the loss of justice for Boushie. Sadly, the Boushie family’s disappointment in the Canadian Justice system is not a new one for Canada’s indigenous people – and that is not okay.

The Truth about Sexual Violence: Privilege, Power, and Abuse

Oprah’s inspiring acceptance speech was met with enthusiastic applause at the 75th annual Golden Globes, where this year, celebrities dressed for a cause instead of red carpet trendiness. Donning their black gowns and #TimesUp pins as a public display of unity for sexual harassment survivors and allies, they roared in solidarity as Oprah powerfully boomed, “the time is up!” In the same week, however, 1500 miles away from the festivities, another young man became a convicted sex offender. This is the truth of sexual violence.

OQLF: Quebec’s French Language Stasi

In Quebec, Canada’s French-speaking province, there exists a team of men and women wandering around with cameras, snapping photographs of shop signs and restaurant menus. Their purpose? To make sure that the French language remains predominant over the English Language in all aspects of daily life. Their presence has caused confusion, destroyed the identity of businesses and has resulted in Anglophones fleeing the province en masse. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the Office Québécois de la Langue Française (OQLF), and they suck balls.

Illegal Immigration in… Canada?

We hear plenty on the news about Illegal Immigration in the United States. It’s often referenced in comedy sketches, TV shows and Trump just doesn’t like to shut up about it (“I will build a great wall.”). Something we don’t hear as often is Illegal Immigration in Canada.

Cannabis Canada

No, Canada Is NOT Legalizing Cannabis

Weed, Pot, Cannabis, Mary Jane — you may not have smoked it or ingested it before, but you’ve certainly heard about it. Since the Liberals have taken office in Canada, The Cannabis Act has become a common topic in the media. The Canadian government plans to make weed legal as early as July 2018 – but are they really?
