oh, canada…

oh canada!

what’s been going on since i’ve left? yes, i’ve been being skimming the headlines. but i never thought that some of the outlandishly proposed or cautioned would actually materialize.

in the news today:

afrocentric (black-focus) schools have been approved in Toronto, starting 2009 – news articles HERE! and HERE TOO!

  • personally, i’m worried about the consequences. living in chicago now, i can only think of greater neighbour segregation, racism, and all that bad stuff down the road. admittedly, i haven’t read all of the literature, but for now: oh dear…

lockdown at UBC – cbc report HERE!

  • i haven’t been able to find an update, but i’ll prolly post it RIGHT HERE since i want to write a separate post about it anyhow.
