RCMP INSIDE CANADA'S SECRET POLICE

DESPITE THE MILLIONS of published words about the work of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the activities, modus operandi, and aims of one important segment of the force — the Directorate of Security and Intelligence — remain relatively unknown to the public.

A cool look at the dot race into space

WHY ARE AMERICANS pouring so much money into the space race? What will it do for their lives, for our lives in Canada — we have a slight stake in the affair as the first of the smaller nations to orbit a Lilliputian laboratory — and for the lives of the rest of the world's 3,200.000,000 inhabitants?

A BLACK MAN TALKS ABOUT RACE PREJUDICE IN WHITE CANADA

THIS YEAR I became eligible for Canadian citizenship, but I do not intend to apply for it. Not because I undervalue this status which is so highly prized by so many immigrants from all over the world; rather, because I do value its privileges highly, but realize that I would be accepting in theory a status that Canada does not intend to give me in practice — because I am a black man.

An infuriated farmer makes his case against hoodlum hunters: LET’S END THE OPEN SEASON ON PEOPLE

FOR SEVEN YEARS I have farmed on a crown game preserve, fifty miles west of Toronto. I have a hundred acres of trees and meadow, a stream, sixteen Arabian horses and no telephone or TV. To my city friends it seems an enviable retreat from the nuisances of urban life.

Co-op profits: food, cash and a new wave of tough Eskimo businessmen

EVEN BY ARCTIC STANDARDS the IODE hall in Frobisher Bay is a depressing place. It encloses Sunday school chairs — and heat.
