EDITORIAL: How not to manage the retail sale of pot (Sept. 2019)

October 8th, 2019 · Comments Off on EDITORIAL: How not to manage the retail sale of pot (Sept. 2019)

Just ask Doug Ford. Ford lost $42 million selling pot last year. Then he botched the roll-out of retail licences so badly that it is now under judicial review. Illegal pot is widely available and is in fact necessary to satisfy the market demand that the province has failed to meet.

Inequitable day care costs thrust onto city

By Mike Layton

Throughout my time at City Hall I have worked hard to increase the quality of life for Toronto residents and to make living here more affordable. This year, the Ford government has been going out of its way to reduce quality of life and make it more unaffordable to live in Toronto, through their many service cuts and downloading.

Concrete measure protects truth, complexity, and journalists

By Chrystia Freeland

This autumn we will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Those of us who lived through that time, as I did, remember it as a euphoric moment. It was hard to imagine that liberal democracy was anything less than both inevitable and eternal.

Veteran Green Party candidate aims for federal seat

By Tim Grant

This fall’s election comes at a pivotal time for Canada and the global community. Last October, the world’s climate scientists told us we have only 11 years to prevent runaway climate change. To do that, we have to meet a new internationally agreed goal of cutting carbon emissions by 60 per cent by 2030 and eliminate our use of fossil fuels by 2050. If we fail, we will be condemning future generations to unspeakable hardship.

GREENINGS: Addiction to capitalism will lead to overdose (Sept. 2019)

As we take the drug of economic development, the planet burns

As the Amazon burns, we are reminded of what unfettered capitalism looks like. Greed has literally blotted out the sun in Sao Paulo. Images taken in the mid afternoon appear as dark as midnight, as smoke from the burning Amazon darkens the sky.
