    Do you have an hour for democracy? I'm sharing this for Ryan T. who is hosting this event next Saturday at 11 a.m. at the Newmarket Library: It may not feel like it yet, but the 2015 federal election is just around the corner. If we start working together now, we can help hold this government accountable at the ballot box, and elect people with a strong mandate for action on democracy, climate, and inequality. More than that - we can help build a movement strong enough to push for real changes after the election. Between February 27th and March 9th, people are going to gather in communities across the country to talk about a plan to organize for and beyond the 2015 election. Join Newmarket for Connect!

    Though he is back-pedalling as fast as his well-paid feet will move, Minister Moore stepped in it big-time last week... and demonstrated with rare honesty just how little the Conservatives care about the most vulnerable in this country. The House of Commons first passed a resolution to end child poverty in Canada in 1989 - and said it would be done by 2000. To date, they've done absolutely nothing effective to reduce the levels. And his argument that Canadians are wealthier than we've ever been? Only if you ignore inflation and the growing income disparity between the have-a-whole-hell-of-a-lots and the rest of us. Shame. Do I need to mention that the Greens fully support the original motion and have a comprehensive poverty elimination strategy? We do. There should be a holy, righteous firestorm about this, especially from those who claim to be Christ-followers, but it will probably blow over with nary a peep. Sigh.

    And out of Croatia, we have a great example of how to word a referendum question so vaguely as to be meaningless and then how to attach whatever meaning you want to it. "Do you agree that marriage is matrimony between a man and a woman?" 65% said Yes. Oh, so that means, says the government, using logic that would be destroyed in any 2nd year university class, that marriage is ONLY between a man and a woman and we should outlaw same sex unions. Our people demand it! Way to take a fact and run straight into fantasy-land. Grrr.... (btw, if you have delicate sensibilities, ignore the tweet, it's rather offensive and has since been deleted.) http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/12/03/croatia-gay-marriage-ban-domagoj-margeti_n_4378436.html
