Racism has been used for centuries to divide and conquer working people. Today, "systemic racism" is an institutionalized feature of society, throwing up barriers to racialized workers and families in every community. All of our institutions and cultural norms are touched by its impact.
Beyond helping break the cycle of constant consumption and allowing people to focus on things that matter -- like friends, family and time in nature -- a shorter work week would also reduce rush-hour traffic and gridlock, which contribute to pollution and climate change. It could help reduce stress and the health problems that come from modern work practices, such as sitting for long hours at computers. And it would give people more options for family care.

Kicking out Harper was only a beginning to rebuilding a progressive vision in this country. We must push back as a united voice against the politics of division, racism, Islamophobia, transphobia, homophobia, xenophobia and sexism that right-wing populists stir up in their cynical quests for power.

Across Canada, we search far too often for answers to explain why and how our loved ones die on the job - whether the sudden loss of an industrial accident, or the slow death from chemicals or other toxins in the workplace. In 2015, the most recent year for which numbers available, 852 workers died at work.

The Trump administration fancies the use of protectionist measures to boost production and employment in the U.S., to the detriment of other countries if need be. Such interference with economic globalization wouldn't just infringe on prosperity. It would probably also rekindle old and new political conflicts.

As the founder of Microsoft, there are few people on the planet who have helped to guide technological progression (at least in the realm of computing) as much as Gates over the course of his 42-year career. The thrust of his argument is this: if robots replace human workers whose pay would otherwise be taxed, why then should the labour of the robots not also be subject to taxation?

It's absurd that so many people still work eight hours a day, five days a week -- or more -- with only a few weeks' vacation a year, often needing two incomes to support a household. Our economic system was developed when resources seemed plentiful if not inexhaustible, and physical infrastructure was lacking. We need an overhaul to meet today's conditions rather than those that existed decades ago when we were unaware of many of the potential negative consequences of our actions.

In Canada many are forced to turn to payday lenders that charge exorbitant fees, and the major banks themselves gouge us every day, forcing us to pay some of the highest fees in the world. It's up to us to insist that we want a public postal bank to be part of the way forward.

The past year has been very eventful for Canada and the world -- in some very good ways, and, unfortunately, in some very bad ones. I do think the next year can provide an opportunity to support more women and marginalized people to be involved in politics and run for office, but this will require our collective actions to create spaces and opportunities.

Activists take pride in the fact that their movements are inclusive, but it appears that unless women and girls with disabilities and deaf women and girls make our way to the table then, over and over again, our needs are forgotten. There are but a handful of women with disabilities and Deaf women in Canada who are fortunate enough to be at those tables, and I am one of them.
Last week, Finance Minister Bill Morneau warned young Canadians that they should get used to what is known as "job churn" -- short-term employment, with many career changes. Recent reports seem to be supporting his claims.
Although clearly a critical factor, pointing students in the right direction is only half the battle. The other half must be improving collaboration between government and industry to develop tangible solutions to strengthen the future workforce. As far as we're concerned, that time is now.

It was becoming evident in photos of our baby that his forehead was very round and protruding, and his temples looked "pinched" into his head. He also had a very marked flat spot on the back right side of his long and narrow head shape. I brought up my concerns, and I was told not to worry about it. But I did.
More labour advocates must realize that solidarity should extend to other species and that the expansion of a humane economy is a compelling opportunity to grow and evolve in progressive ways. Failure to do so would be a grave lost opportunity.
When Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was assassinated in June 1914, no one thought, "Uh-oh, World War I is starting..." We only recognize the significance of events in the context of history. I recently had a day like any other except it made me wonder if we're on the verge of historical change.
