Voters may be saying 'enough is enough' to Harper's Tories | Aug 29 2014 | Geoffrey Stevens | As I read the opinion polls, people are not so much outraged by Stephen Harper and the Conservatives as they are tired of them. The same thing happened to Brian Mulroney at about the same stage.

Where is the economic action for women in the North? | Aug 29 2014 | Kate McInturff | An economic plan that would work for women in the North has to accommodate the realities of where they work, how they work and the constraints imposed by their unpaid work.

America the Beautiful: Deluxe Ferguson Edition | Aug 29 2014 | J. Baglow | Nothing has been resolved in Ferguson -- or in the rest of a deeply racist America. What is to be done?

Another CBC exercise in propaganda over Ukraine | Aug 29 2014 | Roger Annis | Coincidentally, Democracy Now! and CBC broadcast two stories on Ukraine today. One was serious analysis, another was a platform for propaganda.

Current rabble poll

What do you think should happen with the B.C. teachers' strike?

The ongoing B.C. teachers' strike has left many wondering if students will be back in class on Tuesday, September 2. Though the B.C. government and B.C. teachers still seem on opposite sides, some parents are calling on both sides to end the action. 

The teachers are asking for lower class sizes and improved class composition, as well as fair wages. The province says it cannot meet their demands.

What do you think should happen with the B.C. teachers' strike?
