Chip in to keep stories like these coming.

Thousands of prisoners will be moved out of solitary confinement in California, thanks to a landmark legal settlement announced this week. Grassroots organizing can be tough, but when done by prisoners locked up in solitary confinement, some of them for decades, it is astounding.

The settlement grew out of a federal class-action lawsuit alleging violations of the constitutional prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment.

Despite Immigration Minister Chris Alexander's promises to the Filipino and migrant communities that the November 2014 changes to the Live-in Caregiver Program provided greater protections to caregivers and quickened processing times, the opposite has occurred.

2015 election needs to focus on our digital future

Chip in to keep stories like these coming, during this election -- and beyond.

This election, Canadians can't afford to be caught up in the soundbites, quibbles and petty pandering that our politicians are increasingly levelling at each other. Trudeau's hair? Mulcair's smile? Harper's suit?

There's a much bigger issue up for debate: What do we want our country to look like five or 10 years from now?

Even though there are more than 300,000 migrant workers in Canada their precarious working conditions and challenges go almost unnoticed.
