TEACHER + UNION

School Violence: ETFO's public elementary teacher union President Sam Hammond speaks out against the rash of violence in our Ontario schools. Even the teachers are getting hit, bit, punched, and spit at. Clearly, a lot more "front line supports" are needed from the provincial government @ CBC

End the Silence - Stop the Violence: The OSSTF public secondary school union continues to lobby the Ontario Ministry of Education and Ministry of Labour to protect it's front line teachers and education workers from "violence in the workplace". Nobody, teachers included, should have to fear getting injured at school. They outline the next steps they will be taking this fall with the provincial government @ OSSTF

Failing Grade: Toronto's TDSB public schools score very poorly for their lack of understanding about students' who are both black and queer. The issues are staggering. Sadly, one can't imagine the TCDSB Catholic board fairing much better. Much more effort and perhaps a swift kick in the butt seems desperately needed, to back up all the fine talk about Canadian inclusivity and LGBTQ Charter rights, paid for on the public dime. More @ Now

Children First: NDP MP Charles Angus takes the Trudeau Liberal government to task for ignoring 4 rulings by the Human Rights Tribunal addressing Canada's systemic discrimination against First Nation youth. After 150 years of colonial exploitation and neglect, the way forward is to start putting the children's needs first. But that isn't happening @ Star

Aboriginal Education: The OECTA Catholic teacher union has prepared a thorough list of valuable resources to help it's teachers with First Nation issues @ OECTA

OH CANADA


Oil will be well ....

Canada's 150th Birth Day: Canada Day wasn't much of a celebration for our indigenous First Nation peoples. Think about it: while "settling" in Canada, the white colonial England and France colonialists took away their land, culture and even their children. As a young nation, we are still a work in progress. So, how do we move forward constructively from here, to properly address these grave injustices? Bob Rae considers the challenges of the "Canadian Odyssey". For starters, he argues that Canada's indigenous people must also be thought of and treated as one of Canada's three "founding nations" @ Star

Trudeau + Harper: Meet the new boss, same as the old boss! Is Justin just another "puppet for the wealthy"?!? If so, how did that happen? Think Oligarchical Rigging! More @ Tyee

Trudeau and Trump: The US President is lavishing praise on Justin Trudeau for doing a "spectacular job" as our Prime Minster. Perhaps Trudeau's "greatest success" so far is in diplomatically playing the Trump card to Canada's advantage, for whatever that's worth in the long run. It's a risky hand to play, but what else can Trudeau do with the terrible one that he was dealt when Donald took office? Hmmm @  Star


Oh Canada ...

"Canada 101" or "Nice, Nice, Very Nice": Canadians are friendly, polite and very easy going .... right?!? Ummm, well, we can thank WW2 and the US for the nice stereotype, anyway @ Huff

Top O' The Pops: According to a recent international IPSO poll, 81% of those surveyed think Canada has the "most positive influence on the world right now", for the second year in a row, compared to 40% who think it's the US. Heh ... Heh ... heh @ Macs

"Canada 201" or "Look at Us -We're Wonderful?!?" The world needs more Canada @ Whig No! No! Canada needs more of the world @ Star 

Trump Polls Tank: Under President Donald Trump, 80% of Canadians actually dislike our neighbours to the south for the first time in 35 years! Grrr! Grrr! Grrr! Of course, Trump's only polling at 70% in the states, so maybe those folks can be forgiven? Quick! Somebody go tell them they can still come visit and be our friends! @ Star

Trumped: Yup! We Canucks dislike the Donald so much that the Trump Tower in Toronto is getting new owners and changing it's name! Unlike in the US where ... where ... where ..... Eh?!? It's happening all over the states too?!? Er ... er ... er ... Sorry! @ Huff

IN THE NEWS


Trump Clown Show: Whoa! Get this -US political commentators at Fox and CNN are astonished! Turns out that the "isolated and friendless" Trump scored two thumbs down in the international media for his disastrous circus like foreign policy antics on the world stage, during the G20 conference in Hamburg. Guess the befuckled stateside media didn't notice as the MAGA man "pressed hard on the decline of US leadership". Or that Russia and China will benefit again from his self inflicted wounds. Missed that, eh? Duh! Very embarrassing! But the real shocker? This is hardly anything new for the incredibly Unpresidential Donald Trump, as most everybody else around the world can all to clearly see @ Guardian

Muslim Ban: Trump wants to ban Muslim's from 6 middle eastern countries to stop Islamic terrorism from entering the USA. Truth be told, the overwhelming majority of gunmen shooting up the country are white Christian extremists ... Sooooooooo -will he banning Christians from 6 Europeon countries next?!? Why not??? More @ NYTDN

A Method To His Madness? Kim Jong Un talks crazy talk -or does he? Against all odds, North Korea has played the survival game very well for over 70 years. Still does. The buffoonish Trumpster could well just be playing into his hands with all his MAGA bluster. Bottom line: War is a terrible losing proposition for everybody, but everybody in the region. Is Kim Jong Un worried? Maybe not! For him there's not much left to lose, plenty to gain, by taking Trump for a fool in this high stake game @ WP

KULTURE KULT INK


Kayaking is fun! La la la la la ......

"Danger man" or "Kayak Fishing 101": Beware of sharks! Get this -They can flip over yer kayak and then eat you!!! Yiiiiikes! I ... I ... I go kayaking almost every day, here during the summer at Lake Mississaganon, Land o' Lakes! Eh?!? It's a fresh water lake? Shhhhhhhhhhh @ FN
