The Wright stuff

Michelle Wright remembers how she first hit the road, crammed into a Ford Econoline van with a bunch of guys she hardly knew, feeling the sound equipment pressed up against the back of her seat. She toured America from one country bar to another, the kind of bars that did not hire bands unless they had a female singer.

Children of the tunnels

It is a terrifying experience to follow Dan into the hole he considers home. The door is a manhole cover on the edge of a park near Bucharest’s Gara de Nord subway station. He squeezes through and descends on iron rungs into a dark, stifling and dirty space.

Spiritual advice

I find highly amusing the suggestion of just-defeated Winnipeg MP Dorothy Dobbie that Preston Manning wants to impose his “dangerous” religious views on the nation (‘The crusader,” Cover, Oct. 25). I remember that Canada came through relatively unscathed while William Lyon Mackenzie King led us between 1921-1930 and 1935-1948, according to advice he received from the spirit world.

The positive side of the politics of rage

If we can be patient, ignoring for a moment the people screaming into our ears about the doom just ahead, there are some things even non-Liberals can enjoy about this election. First and foremost, of course, is the fact that it happened at all, that it was done honestly and that a peaceful change of government will occur.

Will the 21st century belong to Jean Chrétien?

Prime ministers love anniversaries. Lester Pearson decided to remain in office until he had had the chance to lead Canada’s 100th birthday celebrations. Pierre Trudeau wanted to be certain he stayed long enough to top Sir Wilfrid Laurier’s time in office.

Tall tales from Canadian courts

When the world’s tallest athletes come cruising into Canada like a herd of giraffes in 1995, it won’t be as though these newest recruits of the National Basketball Association are invading virgin territory. Roundball is very old stuff in this country.

Jean Chrétien’s route to power

Joseph Jacques Jean Chrétien is where he is today because of two women. One wonders whether they know it. On the evening of June 16, 1984, Iona Campagnolo came to the podium at the Liberal leadership race in Ottawa and announced the vote that made John Turner the new leader of the party.
