Have you watched Russell Brand's reaction to the Ottawa shootings? You should.
Brand rejects Harper's assessment and reaction to the situation, stating Harper is using the situation to advance a certain narrative and ultimately restrict further freedoms.
Sounds about right.
This four-video series of the Rally to Stop Harper's War, organized by Toronto Coalition to Stop the War, focuses on specific talks.
Sid Lacombe discusses the Ottawa shootings, increased repression of dissent and the "Australia Model."
Carolyn Egan discusses the dangers of Islamophobia ,linking the war to how Islamophobia played itself out in Ausma Malik's campaign for school board trustee.
Rajean, President of Ryerson Student Union, and James Campbell, a teacher gave their views on why educators should oppose the war.
And finally, Ali Mallah talked of the United States' collusion with the dictators they sought to overthrow.
It's a throwback, but it's always a relevant question. Is voter suppression alive and well in Canada?
Steven Shrybman discusses.
