Policy Options editor responds to National Post on Tom Flanagan affair debt

In their determination to smear media organizations that broke with Tom Flanagan, Jonathan Kay and Terence Corcoran reveal themselves willing to betray any sound journalistic values that might get in their way. Mr. Kay and Mr. Corcoran criticized Policy Options magazine for refusing to publish Mr. Flanagan's proposed article on Calgary politics. As editor of the magazine, I made clear to Mr. Flanagan in an e-mail that I supported his right to say anything he wanted but, because we are deeply opposed to the values he expressed in declaring that viewing child pornography does not harm anyone, we were no longer interested in seeing his yet-to-be-submitted article.

Long-term care – who will pay the bill? debt

Long-term care – who will pay the bill? debt

As Canada's population ages, a growing number of frail seniors will require long-term care. Currently, the financing of long-term care is a patchwork. Access to long-term care and its cost to individuals vary depending on the region where they live and whether they are still at home or in a residential facility. How will governments address the anticipated increase in long-term care needs in the next two decades and beyond? Because there is little information about the level of public funding currently available, let alone future funding, Canadians are not in a position to make informed decisions on how to plan for their care needs in the future.

"I Am Canadian": Challenging Stereotypes about Young Somali Canadians debt

This study challenges the perceptions that the Somali Canadian community has failed to an unusual degree to integrate into the wider society; that this is the fault of the community itself; and, moreover, that this supposed failure represents a threat to Canadian security because of suggestions that some Somali Canadian youth have been lured to the radical extremism of the al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabaab movement in southern Somalia, and because some have become involved in drug traffi cking and street violence.
