  • Mental Wellness through Culture: An Examination of Youth Suicide Rates in
           Canada’s Aboriginal Communities and Recommendations for Public
           Policy

    • Authors: Marla Turner
      Abstract: This paper recognizes the high rate of Aboriginal youth suicide in Canada and the need for an intervention strategy. According to statistics, the high rate of suicide cannot be applied to all Aboriginal communities. There are areas where youth suicide is nonexistent, thus a blanket assumption, such as all Aboriginal youth are at an elevated risk, only perpetuates stigmatization. The biomedical focus of mainstream health care and colonial perspective of other services often fail to acknowledge the determinants behind youth suicide within Aboriginal communities. The literature reveals that healthy communities, with low rates of youth suicide, share a common identity, practice cultural continuity and are self-determining. In order to facilitate healthy environments for Aboriginal youth, Canadians must go beyond thinking of health in terms of treating symptoms. We must instead examine and address the historical and contemporary constructions of racism and cultural genocide and work toward developing public policy promoting culturally safe processes.

  • Transidentitaire : Sexe, Genre et Sexualité dans Volkswagen
           Blues de Jacques Poulin et Le Goût des Jeunes
           Filles de Dany Laferrière

    • Authors: Rachel Baker
      Abstract: À l’heure où les rôles de genre traditionnels sont invariablement réexaminés, déconstruits et réécrits, les conceptions de la masculinité et de la féminité prennent une importance majeure. Cet article examine la multiplicité des identités de genre dans la littérature québécoise contemporaine: Volkswagen Blues de Jacques Poulin et Le Goût des jeunes filles de Dany Laferrière. À partir d’un modèle transidentitaire basé sur des travaux théoriques d’Isabelle Boisclair et de Lori Saint-Martin, deux critiques littéraires québécoises, on examine la manière dont ces écrivains évoquent la masculinité et la féminité. Poulin et Laferrière abordent les questions du sexe et de l’orientation sexuelle, et celles du genre, de son identité et de son expression, créant des espaces où les corps oscillent souvent entre masculin et féminin et ont des qualités masculines et féminines qui apparaissent simultanément ou en alternance, ainsi rejetant un modèle binaire traditionnel du genre. À travers les devises narratives, les textes présentent des personnages qui occupent le continuum du genre et effectuent leurs identités en fonctions des contextes dans lesquels ils se trouvent. Enfin, ces oeuvres encouragent le lecteur de s’interroger sur leur conception du genre, ce que veut dire être homme et ce que veut dire être femme.

  • Restructuring First Nations Health Governance: A Multilevel Solution to a
           Multifaceted Problem

    • Authors: Alexandra J.M. Kent
      Abstract: This paper investigates current health governance structures as a contributing factor to the disproportionate burden of ill-health and inequitable health service delivery experienced by First Nations communities. A review of the contemporary and historical context sets the stage for the analysis, outlining health status, social determinants of health and the policy framework within which health inequities are situated. The paper proceeds with a critical analysis of power imbalances perpetuated within Canada’s health care system in the form of barriers such as inadequate health services, fragmented governance, jurisdictional gaps and lack of government accountability. The discussion explores selfdetermination as a means of empowering First Nations communities to take control of the design, delivery and evaluation of health care services and ultimately, reclaim control of their health and wellbeing. Four models of self-government are evaluated to highlight several key features of a sustainable framework, including: recognition of autonomy, a voluntary process, an opt-in/opt-out provision, protection by legislation and the support of a fiduciary relationship with the State. Finally, a multilevel mosaic model of self-government is proposed as a pragmatic framework that is adaptable to the varying needs and capacities of First Nations communities.

  • Enhancing Ministry Service Provision: Adoptive Families’ Capacity to
           Care for Children and Youth with Special Needs

    • Authors: Christina Yee
      Abstract: This literature review was conducted to explore what elements contribute to the success and disruption of children with special needs who are adopted into prospective families. Five prevailing themes emerged as important considerations when placing children and youth who are waiting to be adopted. These themes include: the characteristics of the child, the characteristics of the adoptive family, sibling placements, agency practices, and most importantly access to pre- and post-adoption supports and services. A general consensus among the voices of professionals and adoptive families in this area of practice concerns the significance of supporting families before, during, and after the placement of children and youth with special needs to ensure permanency of placements. Identifying service needs and gaps in service delivery are therefore essential to ensuring safe, healthy, and successful adoptive experiences for children and youth with special needs. The findings of this report pose important implications for the adoption sector the Ministry of Children and Family Development in the service provision of special needs adoptions.

  • Watching the Crew: Commercial Aircraft Operations and the Surveillance of
           Pilots before and after MH370

    • Authors: Joel C. Holdaway
      Abstract: The disappearance of flight MH370 drew attention to some of the deficiencies of current surveillance technologies used to track aircraft. This article links these deficiencies to systemic controversies surrounding several aspects of aircraft surveillance that also includes the monitoring of pilots’ drug and alcohol use and the gathering of flight data from the cockpit. I argue that the debate around aircraft surveillance began over a decade earlier, after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Prior to 9/11, regulators, management, and pilots worked together in a model where thorough investigations would take place after every incident. Measured changes in policy that were satisfactory to all three parties would subsequently be recommended and implemented. I conclude that pilot discontent over regulatory decisions has translated into a host of undesirable outcomes, including less trust in the procedures and lower morale. Only through transparent negotiation can the trust between pilots, management, and regulators be restored.

  • Communities of Song: Collective Musical Participation and Group Singing
           Experiences In Victoria, BC

    • Authors: Sharonne K. Specker
      Abstract: This research investigates the social processes and effects of participation in two community-oriented choirs in Victoria, BC, and seeks to identify the way in which social cohesion is experienced during group singing practices. Interviews with ten choristers and two conductors reveal the feelings of community that can arise among participants and provide data for exploring how this phenomenon occurs. Results indicate that social bonding in the choral setting manifests itself in various ways. The key factors of a common goal, shared values, a safe environment, community interaction, and social infrastructure facilitate feelings of collective participation, lead to increased levels of trust, equality, connection, and mutual caring. Participant exceptions also emerge, evidence of the group’s heterogeneous approach to sociality. Analysis of both the processes and outcomes indicates that this example of social interconnection is consistent with Victor Turner’s anthropological definition of communitas, or intense communal bonding.

  • Parental Views on School Lunches: Insights into Childhood Obesity

    • Authors: Zoey Verdun
      Abstract: The obesity epidemic constitutes a large and growing share of public health spending. This paper investigates parental views on providing healthy food choices in school lunches in an attempt to contribute to a better understanding of the parents’ role in addressing childhood overweight. I created a survey that was circulated at an elementary school in Victoria, B.C. The results are discussed using a standard microeconomic framework in which parental choices of their children’s lunches depend on their views (“utility”) as well as the restrictions they face. My results suggest that parents perceive price not to be a major factor in the decision to include fruits or vegetables in their child(ren)’s school lunch. The reason provided most frequently by parents for not including fruits or vegetables every day is the expectation that their child(ren) would refuse to eat them, or have too little time at school to eat them. Some parents also mention preparation time as a reason for not including fruits and vegetables.

  • The Evolution and Prevalence of Knee Injuries: Repair at What Cost'

    • Authors: Rachel Spanier
      Abstract: Knee injuries are a common nuisance in the lives of many active individuals. They can stem from tissue damage, ligament damage or bone and/or cartilage damage. Through the exploration of major knee injuries, prevention and more efficient rehabilitation can be attained. The most common knee injuries are analyzed and each of their main cause is examined in this paper. Orthopaedic surgery techniques are discussed, such as, ACL reconstruction, meniscal resection/meniscectomy and high tibial osteotomy. These surgical techniques have evolved immensely in response to the high occurrence of serious knee injuries in active individuals. Many of these injuries originate from too much torque and/or torsion on the knee joint occurring during sports. The faulty anatomy of the knee joint and the glacial pace of evolution play a much larger role than just prevalence of injuries. The economic cost of major knee injury repairs is far too high in private health care systems, which in turn results in a poorer quality of psychosocial health in those injured and unable to receive the corrective surgeries.

  • The Stz’uminus Storied Places Project: A Community-Based Digital
           Mapping Project to Mobilize Indigenous Place Names and Place-based Stories
           

    • Authors: Amy Becker
      Abstract: Many layers of knowledge are embedded within Indigenous-language place names, including, but not limited to, the physical appearance of the environment, resource procurement, cultural identity, history and place-based stories. In the face of the increasingly prevalent reality that Elders are passing away and taking with them a wealth of knowledge, it is crucial that Indigenous place names and the stories associated with them are documented and passed to younger generations. The Stz’uminus Storied Places Project aims to mobilize place-based knowledge about Stz’uminus traditional territory through a community-based research process, where youth meet with Elders and film their place-based stories, as well as a video-embedded digital map. The interactive digital map, with its ability to embed layers of multi-media, attempts to document and communicate an integrated representation Indigenous perspectives of named places.

  • Black Bears (Ursus Americanus) as Possible Vectors of Bi-directional
           Nutrient Transfer in Marine and Terrestrial Systems Inferred from their
           Late Summer Diets

    • Authors: Sara Wickham, Beatrice Proudfoot
      Abstract: American black bears (Ursus americanus) are highly opportunistic omnivores and tend to forage selectively depending on the seasonal abundance of food items. We collected and analyzed 22 scats from various beaches and forests near Bamfield B.C. and determined that in late summer, bears in the area rely heavily on Gaultheria shallon berries. Hemigrapsus spp., Talitrid amphipods and seaweeds were also fed on by black bears in the area in late August. Marine-derived organisms were found in scats collected in the forest, and terrestrial-derived organisms were found in scats collected on beaches, suggesting that there is a bi-directional transfer of marine and terrestrial nutrients and biomass.

  • Constructing New Horizons: the art of Winnipeg modernist Tony Tascona

    • Authors: Justin Barski
      Abstract: There is a popular perception that Canadian art is largely reactionary and without real innovation, however the Winnipeg-based artist Tony Tascona is a demonstrable example of a Canadian artist as primary innovator. Because of his technical training in the aerospace industry, Tascona was able to introduce a whole body of knowledge unfamiliar to the fine art world. Artistic experimentation with non-traditional industrial materials had been explored for several decades prior to the appearance of his mature work, however Tascona possessed an intimate knowledge and sensitivity to his materials that lead to a style uniquely appropriate to his content; his content being the materials themselves and the forms of the mechanised world. Through archival research at the University of Manitoba and an interview with the artist’s nephew, this paper explores Tascona’s artistic genealogy, working milieu and unique situation within modern art history. Its ultimate purpose is to make a case for why his work deserves critical attention and why he should be remembered as a great artist with a contribution unique not just to Canada, but to the world.
