Pathways to Education

Regent Park is the oldest and largest public housing project in Canada. The average income is $18,000 per year, 50 per cent that of other Canadians. Over 80 per cent of residents are immigrants, many of who hold professional training diplomas, degrees and certificates from other countries that are not recognized in Canada. Englis is a second language for nearly 60 per cent of Regent Park adults and the region ahs twice the number of single parent families as the rest of Toronto. To top it off, there are no high schools in the community. It is no surprise that prior to Pathways the drop out rates was 56 per cent, twice Toronto’s average.

Mikaya Heart Grew Up in Scotland

By Mikaya Heart

From a very young age, I was aware that there are many things wrong in this world, and I wanted to change them. I was politically active by the time I was eighteen. In 1973 I became an environmental activist, before the average person on the street had any idea that there were any serious environmental problems. In 1977, I came out as a lesbian, and I was on the front lines of the feminist movement in England for a number of years, involved in a militant campaign to undermine male chauvinism. I was angry.

Book Review of Toni Morrison's Award-Winning Book Beloved

Terry Otten suggests that while Sethe and the other slaves “might be considered simply victims in slavery, once they move towards freedom north of the Ohio River … they assume responsibility for their own ‘criminal’ act and become `victims’ of their own flawed humanity as much as the viciousness of whites.” In this essay, the validity of this statement will be tested against Beloved. References from the novel will show how Terry Otten is incorrect.

I took the hour commute by TTC to Seneca College on York University’s campus to teach. On my way a woman spoke in what sounded like Polish on a cell during the moment of light on the northbound University-Spadina line. I caught all my buses and subways. I even made sure I was the third person off the bus to Dupont Station through the turnstiles and I think this helped me with my luck at getting the subway right away.
