analysis on the issues facing the country — and the world.

Issue 26 Editorials and rejoinders

Two major sections in Inroads 26 represent two sides of Inroads’ mandate. A section on economic inequality, featuring articles by Pierre Fortin on how Quebec has created a more egalitarian society and by John Myles on the relationship between growing inequality and changes in family structure, is thoroughly grounded in analysis of hard data. However, questions touching on the accommodation of cultural differences are less subject to this sort of analysis, and the second section, a debate on Quebec’s controversial Ethics and Religious Culture course, focuses more on philosophical issues. Gary Caldwell, a leading critic of the ERC course, and Georges Leroux, one of the thinkers whose ideas helped shape the course, square off.
