THIS LIFETIME IN CANADA

CONSCRIPTION

THE BONE IN CANADA’S THROAT has choked off national unity twice in this century, and events may soon threaten to bring it back for a third time. This is the story of Canada’s first conscription crisis—of riots in the streets, of a bomb plot, and of what conscription did to two great prime ministers

Last year more than 2,000 Canadians were indicted for sex crimes. Probably twice as many sex criminals were never picked up by police. Most of these deviates don't know why they commit their crimes, or how to stop. Now, a unique clinic in Toronto is beginning to reach some of them in time

The cold war is still cool for Canada’s NATO force
