On Monday, a byelection is being held in the riding of Toronto Centre, and Linda McQuaig, one of Canada's principal champions of social justice and equality, is the NDP candidate for that seat in the House of Commons.

For years, the Liberal Party has taken Toronto Centre for granted -- it is Bob Rae's old riding and the Liberals want desperately to keep it to prove that Justin Trudeau is not just the vacuous pretty boy he actually appears to be. If he loses this riding, it would go a long way to exposing him and the party for what they are.

OECD Skills Outlook 2013: The skills needed for the 21st century

Q. What skills are required in order to be employed and receive relatively high wages in the 21st century? 

A. You mean, other than blindly furious industriousness, continuous calculation of one's self-interest, being raised by wealthy parents, and having good luck amidst the crises produced by neoliberal mismanagement of the economy?

The revolution will not be televised: Russell Brand vs. BBC's Jeremy Paxman

"I don't get my authority from this preexisting paradigm which is quite narrow and only serves a few people. I look elsewhere for alternatives that might be of service to humanity."

In an interview with BBC Newsnight's Jeremy Paxman, comedian Russell Brand lays into a discussion about political apathy, democratic inequality and capitalist institutions, bringing a mainstream light to the messages of marginalized people.
