From the Editor’s Desk

I saw online that Kathy Shaidle passed away on Jan. 9, after a long battle with cancer. She wrote her own obituary, which appeared on her blog Five Feet of Fury and that of her partner Arnie’s, Blazing Cat Fur.

No evil means

No good comes from rioting. When groups become crowds, and crowds become mobs, otherwise lawful citizens are prone to confusion, agitation, and manipulation. Acts that no citizen would think to perform on his own, and crimes that an individual wouldn’t dare to commit: these are the rule rather than the exception amidst the social contagion of mass gatherings. Such pressure and influence [...]

Our original website was launched in the 1990s and updated in 2008. That is decades ago in internet time and our overhaul is long overdue. Better late than never is not a phrase [...]

Demography and destiny

Low fertility rates, not over-population, present challenge “Demography is destiny,” the French sociologist Auguste Comte reportedly said. Population trends – fertility rates, infant survival, ageing, and other facts that are literally about life and death – greatly influence the economy, politics, culture, and world affairs. Demography may not be destiny, but it is nonetheless a powerful force and one that often seems [...]

The population balm

Paul Tuns, Editor of The Interim Newspaper By Paul Tuns A parable of Saint Matthew’s Gospel describes a master who, before going on a journey, entrusts his property to three servants. Their charge is not a light one. They have, after all, been entrusted with the wealth — the very substance — of their lord. The talents imparted to them [...]

Looking up — not left, right

Interim writer, Josie Luetke , Talk Turkey By Josie Luetke Being somewhat of a political nomad, I was eager to read James Mumford’s Vexed: Ethics Beyond Political Tribes, published just this year, precisely because it seemed it would affirm my choice of wandering in the (metaphorical) wilderness rather than buying into one of the flawed “package deals” on offer by [...]

Instagram, the ignored social media platform

Interim writer, Rick McGinnis, Amusements By Rick McGinnis The term “social media” wasn’t in widespread use over 10 years ago, when I started writing this column. Back then we still worried about television and the general amount of “screen time” our children were spending on increasingly smaller and less expensive devices. Re-reading my old columns, like almost every exercise in [...]

COVID fear takes on religious overtones

Interim writer, John Carpay, Law Matters By John Carpay With a religious fervour, fear of COVID-19 is permeating and shaping our laws, policies, and culture. The job-killing, economy-destroying, soul-deadening, anxiety-producing, loneliness-creating, debt-incurring lockdowns, imposed on us since March 2020, have now become permanent restrictions on our Charter freedoms to move, travel, associate, assemble, and worship. Prior to Thanksgiving, Quebec’s health [...]
