Canada’s best source for informed, lively commentary and
analysis on the issues facing the country — and the world.

Issue 36 Columns

Much of Inroads 36 focuses on elections – past, present and yet to come. Stéphane Dion examines the “what ifs” of the closely contested 1995 Quebec sovereignty referendum, while other articles look at the coming elections in Canada and Britain, recent ones in Toronto and Sweden, Scotland’s referendum on independence and Catalonia’s informal “participatory process.” Two major developments in Aboriginal Canada are also prominently featured: the controversy over First Nations education that led to Shawn Atleo’s resignation as National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations, and the Supreme Court’s Tsilhqot’in decision recognizing Aboriginal title, whose implications for British Columbia and beyond are debated by Ken Coates and Gordon Gibson.
