Getting on track : social democratic strategies for Ontario by Daniel Drache( )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New Democratic Party governments in Canada have always been strongly committed to redistributing wealth and stabilizing the economy, but present conditions require that they broaden their perspective. They must also find ways of generating wealth if they expect to finance new social programs or protect existing ones. As global pressures intensify, Bob Rae's Ontario NDP government needs to rethink many of its traditional approaches to public policy and discover new policy instruments to tackle the five principal agendas of social democracy: social welfare policy, labour market adjustment, employment equity, industrial strategy, and environmental recovery

Challenging McWorld by Tony Clarke( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today's youth live, communicate and act in a wired world of corporate logos, symbols and branding. 'McWorld' is the symbolic term used to capture the new realities of corporate-driven globalization engulfing young people today. The dynamics of McWorld provide us with a common symbol and language for both understanding and confronting the major issues of corporate globalization. Challenging McWorld is designed to enable concerned youth to develop skills required for confronting McWorld in their daily lives on several fronts. The first section takes up issues of globalization facing youth in high schools and university or college campuses. The second deals with issues and challenges facing youth in their workplaces and communities. The third addresses some of the major issues of corporate globalization affecting youth in both Canada and the world at large. The fourth section is comprised of lessons plans and education supplements designed to make this edition of Challenging McWorld even more accessible and applicable as a teaching and learning resource. These innovative supplements correspond to the more detailed chapters throughout in the book; they suggest activities and topics for discussion that make Challenging McWorld more interactive, and help readers use the research to engage and question the world around them

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Conflict, Crisis, and Accountability focuses on racial profiling in a law enforcement context, particularly as it relates to domestic policing and anti-terrorism initiatives, and issues concerning the reality and impact on peoples of African descent and those ensnared in post 9/11 security actions. The book is divided into five chapters. The first two summarize developments contributing to the conflict between the Toronto Police and the African Canadian community as well as the history of racial profiling and domestic law enforcement in the U.S., the U.K. and Canada. The next two look at the impact of anti-terrorism legislation, its effect on particular racialized groups and how this is part of the history of Canadian immigration law and policy. The final chapter reviews current efforts to reduce and eliminate racial profiling in domestic law enforcement; several of the measures examined might be useful for all law enforcement officials, whether domestic or at the borders of the nation."--Pub. website

Pensions under attack : what's behind the push to privatize public pensions by Monica Townson( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Canada's aging population has raised cries of alarm from some quarters. Critics warn of a demographic time bomb waiting to explode and an age war over pensions as the baby boom generation starts to retire in the next decade. They say the answer is to get rid of public pension programs like the Canada Pension Plan and force people to contribute to their own personal savings plans instead. Will this spell disaster for the elderly, or is it a bold new idea for coping with rising costs? Monica Townson, a prominent independent economist, discusses the forces behind the push to privatize public pensions and looks at the likely impact of privatization on the financial security of futre seniors. She describes how Chile, under the Pinochet dictatorship, replaced its public pension plan with a forced savings scheme and became the darling of right-wing governments around the world, and how Britain, under Margaret Thatcher, introduced opting out of public pensions and triggered a major scandal involving some of the big names in the insurance industry. As the debate about pivatization heats up the new millennium, Pensions Under Attack provides the information needed to question the hidded agenda behind the current push to privatize public pensions. It will be a timely contribution to a discussion whose outcome affects the personal financial security of every Canadian

If the public policy goal to connect all schools to the information highway becomes a reality, public education as Canadians have known it--a shared social responsibility and a generally shared social experience--could be lost.

The following papers are included: "Visioning Education in the Information Economy" (Alison Taylor); "Canadian Classrooms on the Information Highway: Making the Connections" (Marita Moll); "Globalization, Trade Agreements, and Education" (Larry Kuehn); "Globalization, Professionalization, and Educational Policies in British Columbia" (Charles Ungerleider); "Computer Literacy, the 'Knowledge Economy' and Information Control: Micro Myths and Macro Choices" (David Livingston); "An Electronic Stew: Impact and Change in Atlantic Canada's English Language Arts Curriculum" (Barrie Barrell); and "Teachers' Work: Living in the Culture of Insufficiency" (Jean-Claude Couture). An Epilogue by Langdon Winner, "The Handwriting on the Wall: Resisting Technoglobalism's Assault on Education," and an annotated bibliography by Bernie Froese-Germain and Marita Moll are also included.
