Our top 10 counterweights articles for that strange year 2018 (and happy new year to an even stranger 2019 ??)

Dec 31st, 2018 | By Counterweights Editors | Category: In Brief

At the end of this annual exercise for this (even unusually?) strange year we suddenly realize that our deepest recent preoccupations have been quite local — north of the North American Great Lakes, on the northwest shore of Lake Ontario. We may have been seeking refuge (albeit in vain) from the larger wild and crazy [...]



Can Justin Trudeau be defeated Oct 21, 2019 (& what do Lester Pearson and early Pierre Trudeau say) ??

Dec 27th, 2018 | By Counterweights Editors | Category: In Brief

One counterweights item from the year now ending that has seen fresh visits in the most recent past is Randall White’s “Can Justin Trudeau be defeated in the next Canadian federal election?,” first posted back on May 8, 2018. In the new age of fixed-date elections (sort of) the campaign for the 43rd Canadian federal [...]

Dec 11th, 2018 | By Counterweights Editors | Category: In Brief

Ordinarily as the year ends we post a few lists of our own favourite or at least most-visited articles from the time on its way out. And we will be doing this again before December 31, 2018 (New Year’s Eve), at least once — and possibly twice. (Or more? Who can really say anything in [...]



November 6, 2018 in USA .. not exactly a night to remember for the rest of our lives?

Nov 7th, 2018 | By Counterweights Editors | Category: In Brief

6:20 PM ET : Nothing too striking in the earliest 2018 US Midterms vote, as best as we can tell, on Twitter and/or TV. But it’s a relief that the evening has finally begun, as Rachel Maddow has recently observed. 12:15 AM : We agreed to wait somewhat longer before making any brief comments. Until [...]

First, the bad news. Our text here is Neil Macdonald’s October 16 piece on the CBC News site :? “Lose your illusions. It’s an ugly, dystopian world … People my age grew up believing the world, led by the West, was becoming more progressive. It wasn’t and isn’t.” Macdonald offers a “few thoughts on the [...]



August for the people 2018 : Canada/Saudi Arabia, Emancipation Day, global languages, Auden’s Brexit poem?

Aug 9th, 2018 | By Counterweights Editors | Category: In Brief

CANADA/SAUDI ARABIA : To us what the Canadian federal government has done in its recent complaints about the fate of Samar Badawi, and other human rights activists in Saudi Arabia, is altogether what should be done. We have stood up on the side of the angels, and we should just have the balls to stay [...]



Are Trump’s US trade policies a new argument for the Trans Mountain pipeline to Asia in Canada?

Jun 16th, 2018 | By Counterweights Editors | Category: In Brief

[UPDATED 4 PM]. The brief but fierce big rainy wind that toppled a huge old oak tree down by the lake is over, here in this big-urban Ontario NDP electoral district. But it also almost seemed like a meteorological comment on key current political events. The human dramas have calmed down now, along with the [...]



Off to Trump’s America again in .. just what is going on there anyway (& in good old ontariario too) ????

Apr 17th, 2018 | By Counterweights Editors | Category: In Brief

In some ways we cannot really say that almost all of us in the Toronto editorial office here will be headed for Trump’s America on April 18, 2018, for one of our regular conferences with our growing technical staff in northern California. California generally is not really in Trump’s America, of course,? and northern California [...]



Does Doug Ford actually resemble old Dief the Chief in Canada, 1957–63, and not Donald Trump in USA today?

Apr 8th, 2018 | By Counterweights Editors | Category: In Brief

The other night on TV the eminent and excellent CBC News poll analyst éric Grenier advised that, based on current polling data, the coming June 7 election in Canada’s most populous province is “Doug Ford’s to lose.” This has various people nervous, including us. However you look at it, the new provincial Progressive Conservative leader [...]

And here’s one cut at how the world looked to five brazen voices from our team on the northwest shore of the most easterly North American Great Lake — Dominic Berry, the Counterweights Editors, Rob Sparrow, [...]
