Anti-austerity protestors resist. Willy-Nilly from Iraq into Syria. A Child's Country Christmas in the 1950s through the eyes of a 9 Year Old.

The Toronto Star did not report that 200,000 people took to the streets in Montreal and Quebec City Saturday Nov. 29, but the Latin American network Telesur reported the union-led demonstrations to the world.

Just as they fought Charest's tuition hikes in 2012, Quebecers are showing backbone in resisting the cuts to the province's social fabric, cuts that are committed by the modern-day Scrooges who seek to ravage popular wealth in the country.

Justin Trudeau better watch out, because the Liberals are unable to make good on their campaign promises, instead offering only cuts and misery to the voting public.

The Quebec Liberal government’s plan for $4 billion in cuts to social programs has united the people into resistance.


The Canadian government has indicated it is looking for legal opinions on bombing Syria. International Human Rights Lawyer David Jacobs says that they can look no further: the UN Charter clearly states that war is permissible only in self defence, or under the authority of the UN Security Council.

There is no Security Council resolution allowing Canada to bomb in Syria, and no need for self-defense. Bombing inside Syria is an act of war, just as would be the bombing of a Canadian province by a foreign power.

Syria could defeat ISIS on its own, if it's sovereignty was respected. Instead, NATO members and friends continue to pour arms and terrorists across Syrian borders.


Larry Krotz reads from his latest book, A Child's Country Christmas. He selects the magical annual Christmas concert presented at his one-room school in SW Ontario in the late 1950s, when he was 9 years old.

After the reading, Krotz laments that now the one-room school house is property for someone in the city to use on weekends and holidays. What was a "fully packaged culture" for a 9 year old in the late 1950s has been lost. The farmers struggle working on the farm and in the city. Building community has turned into searching for bargains at the nearest Wal-Mart. The only push-back is the holistic and organic farm movement.
