Working the deadbeat : 50 lives that changed Canada by Sandra Martin( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Globe and Mail columnist Sandra Martin honours the lives of Canada's famous, infamous, and unsung heroes in this unique collection of obituaries of the first decade of the twenty-first century. Here are Canadian icons such as Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, economist John Kenneth Galbraith, social activist June Callwood, and urban theorist Jane Jacobs. Here are builders such as feminist and editor Doris Anderson, and businessman and famed art collector Ken Thomson. Here are our rogues, rascals, and romantics; our service men and women; and here are those private citizens whose lives have had an undeniable public impact. Finally, Martin interweaves these elegant and eloquent biographies with the autobiography of the obit writer, offering an exclusive and intimate view of life on the dead beat."--Publisher

The new Right's education agenda for the states : a legislator's briefing book by Sandra Martin( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph offers a critical response to the platform for restructuring the public educational system proposed by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) in its "Education Source Book: The State Legislators' Guide to Reform." The source book offers more than a dozen model state statutes that would effect a massive shift of public, tax-generated funds to the support and encouragement of private education. A bill-by-bill critique of the proposals is presented and right wing plans to spend public money for private education are analyzed. Under discussion are the ALEC approach to education and how each of the proposals for legislation would affect the role of parents, teachers, and the states in education. (JD)

A good death : making the most of our final choices by Sandra Martin( Recording )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We can't avoid death, but the prospect is a lot less terrifying since the Supreme Court of Canada legalized physician-assisted death. Competent adults, suffering grievously from intolerable medical conditions, will have the right to ask for a doctor's help in ending their lives. That much is clear. The challenge now is to pass legislation that reflects this landmark decision and develop regulations that reconcile the Charter rights of both doctors and patients. If we get the balance right between compassion for the suffering and protection of the vulnerable, between individual choice and social responsibility, we can set an example for the world. 2016
