TURMOIL IN QUEBEC:

The kidnapping crisis began with a mood of excitement, almost elation, for many young Quebeckers. It ended with revulsion when kidnapping turned to murder. This is how it seemed to Toronto writer William Cameron who was there in Old Montreal the day it happened—THE DAY THE FACES CLOSED

How Manitoba Turned 100 By Standing On Its Head

MANITOBA, TO BORROW a phrase from a political hero of Premier Ed Schreyer, just may be the place where Canada keeps her overdue rendezvous with destiny. Important things are happening there, important to all of us. Even British Columbia’s W. A. C. Bennett, attending the Provincial Premiers’ Conference in Winnipeg last August, could sense national significance in the Manitoba air.

The Outsider Moves In

You REMEMBER Joe Borowski. The guy who caused such a stir a few years back by camping on the steps of the Manitoba Legislature. Even the eastern press was full of stories about this crazy miner from Thompson. Man., with his sleeping bag and his handlettered signs that said: ROBLINHOOD IS NO DAMN GOOD (FOR MANITOBA).

The Birth Of A Movie

Take One, Scene 1. Tuesday. Breakfast is a family affair, for once. Geneviève usually doesn’t see the morning until long after Paul, an obsessive early jogger. Today she is more reluctant to get up than usual; has just returned from Spain where she made The Trojan Women with Katharine Hepburn and Vanessa Redgrave.

The Successful Canadian? Uh-Uh

CANADIANS HAVE TURNED their backs on the Affluent Dream. Success — that magic word — no longer means, as the Oxford Concise Dictionary would have it, the "attainment of wealth or fame or position”; to Canadians, it means trustworthiness, honesty, sincerity.

Diets Be Damned: Eat, Drink And Be Merry For Your Body Knows Best

THE SCIENCE OF NUTRITION is so inexact that nobody has the right answer on what and how to eat. A little learning is a dangerous thing, and the taboos, preconceptions, “scientific” advice and old wives’ tales on food are as numerous as they are unreliable.

Fortune And Men’s Eyes —a report from the set in a Quebec City prison

Two YEARS AGO the CBS television program Sixty Minutes reported “a routine incident” in a Philadelphia jail. A white youth, arrested for possession of marijuana and jailed overnight, was gang-raped the next morning by six black convicts in the back of a paddy wagon en route to a courthouse.

Convinced the time is now or never for nationalism, these five men launched the Committee for Independent Canada

CIC hopes for half a million names — in support of a firmly nationalist policy statement (its eight main points are outlined on the facing page) which will be presented to Prime Minister Trudeau. If it draws anything like the support the committee expects, the petition will mark the time when the Canadian people decided, once and for all, that the independence issue was more important than any party platform.

Canadians (Those Wonderful Folks Who Gave You Hockey) want their sport back. Militantly and massively, you’re telling us that what this country needs is a NATIONAL National Hockey League!

LAST JULY I wrote an article in Maclean’s called What this country needs is a sport it can call its own. We used to have one. Hockey. At the time, I had just read that the owners of the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens had threatened to move their franchises to American cities in the face of proposed tax reforms that would end tax-deductible season tickets for businesses.
