  • Settler Care: The Politics of Welcome (and Worry) in Canada's "Most Racist
           City"

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: "Clearly, the idea of care is important to Canadian identity. But… care is a complicated, mutable concept.""Care is enmeshed in the logics of settler colonialism."Given the prominence of ideas about care and inclusivity in Canadian national mythology (DeFalco 2016) it is perhaps no surprise that this is the language used by state leaders in response to refugee arrivals. At a forum held in December 2015 to discuss the welcoming of Syrian refugees, Governor General David Johnston said: "This is a defining moment for Canada, a defining moment for all of us… And it's even more than that, it's an opportunity… to reimagine how Canada takes care of its most marginalized and vulnerable and provides equality of opportunity" ...

  • Creating and Optimizing Employment Opportunities for Women in the Clean
           Energy Sector in Canada

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Employment in the energy industry is extremely male dominated everywhere in the world. In 2012, UN Women reported that women made up 6% of technical staff, 4% of decision-makers, and only 1% of top management in the fossil-fuel based sector (UN Women 2012). Despite efforts made to improve women's participation in the energy sector at various national and sub-national levels in the intervening years, women continue to be underrepresented in both the traditional (fossil-fuel based) and the clean and renewable energy (RE) sectors (WEF 2016). Globally, women currently represent only 32% of the RE workforce and 22% of the fossil-fuel based sector (IRENA 2019a). Women are particularly underrepresented in RE in jobs that ... Read More

  • Tracing One Warm Line: Climate Stories and Silences in Northwest Passage
           Tourism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the summer of 2016, the luxury cruise ship Crystal Serenity embarked on its first voyage through the Northwest Passage, starting in Seward, Alaska and ending in New York. The ship, which carried roughly 1,000 passengers and 700 crew, was the largest of its kind to sail through Arctic waters that have become newly open to larger-scale seaborne tourism due to reduced sea ice through the late summer months (CBC 2016a; Stephenson and Smith 2015; Stephenson et al. 2013). The Serenity made waves along the shorelines it passed and in southern boardrooms and media outlets for a number of reasons. For one, the sheer size of the ship was noteworthy: It was much larger than anything most Arctic residents had previously ... Read More

  • On Trudeau's "Independent" Senate: Still a Rubber Stamp, or a Legislative
           Partner'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: One of the promises made by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party in the 2015 federal election was to bring "real change" to the Senate (Liberal Party of Canada 2015, 29). While we can debate what "real change" means, there is no doubt that Trudeau followed through on his promise, establishing an independent, non-partisan and merit-based appointment process within months of his election victory. As of May 2021, 52 senators had been appointed through the new process. Because some formerly partisan senators opted to sever party ties (with a not-so-subtle push from Trudeau), independent senators have constituted a majority in the 105-seat Senate for some time now, and the functional coordinating ...

  • Acts of Faith: The Postmigrant Theatre of David Yee

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: On 19 November 2020, in the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the world premiere of David Yee's new play, acts of faith, was streamed live from Factory Theatre's rehearsal hall in downtown Toronto (see Figure 1)Natasha Mumba as Faith in Factory Theatre's production of David Yee's acts of faith, directed by Nina Lee Aquino, set & costume design by Joanna Yu, and lighting design by Michelle Ramsay. Photo by Dahlia KatzA combination of clever writing, gratuitous jokes, and the numinous, acts of faith was oddly representative of the Governor-General's-Award-winning playwright's diverse body of work in what Turkish born German director Shermin Langhoff, focusing on Europe, has called "postmigrant theatre"—that is ...

  • "Improvident and Profligate": The Alexandra Readers Controversy in
           Saskatchewan, 1908–1909

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: On 15 January 1908, the Regina Morning Leader reported that a coveted contract for the Alexandra Readers, textbooks for the newly created Canadian provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan, had been awarded to the Morang Educational Company of Toronto (1908a, n.p.; Bookseller and Stationer 1908, 15).1 They were to be provided free of charge to pupils. This was a significant departure from past practice, which involved purchase of textbooks by parents from local booksellers. This study will examine the controversy provoked by the decision to award this contract in the province of Saskatchewan and the factors that led to this controversy. It will serve to reveal the deeply political nature of many of the conflicts around ... Read More
