THE BOUCHARD FACTOR

The drab industrial town of Sorel, 50 km northeast of Montreal, is hardly a place to lift the spirits. These days, it is best known as the Quebec headquarters of the Hell’s Angels, the feared motorcycle gang whose bloody feud with the rival Rock Machine has shocked the province.

A great black hope for the U.S. presidency

The O. J. Simpson verdict has opened up discussion about “the racial divide” in the United States. Black and white elites are swinging towards the notion of electing retired general Colin Powell as president. In fact, at a dinner in Toronto last month, I first heard neo-conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer say that, even though it would forfeit the Republican Revolution, he would vote for Powell because it was more important to heal the rift between blacks and whites.

I worked his phone seeking encouraging words from half a world away—about beleaguered Sarajevo’s water supply.

The enormously successful Senior PGA Tour, which has extended the competitive careers of such over-50 golfers as Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, is coming to Canada in 1996. Although neither the Royal Canadian Golf Association nor the PGA Tour will confirm that a deal has been struck, insiders say the 72-hole Senior Canadian Open—so-named until a title sponsor is found—will be played from June 13 to 16 in Hamilton for a $1.35-million purse.

Telling tall tales from Disneyland

The federalist approach to the referendum campaign ought to emphasize the values the French and English parts of Canada place on staying together, instead of concentrating on how Quebec’s separatist leaders would punish their followers by turning the province into a foreign country.

Singer-songwriter Bruce Cockburn is almost as well-known for his political causes as he is for his eclectic musical tastes. His current campaign aims to draw attention to the international trade in, and deployment of, land mines. There are now about 100 million of the long-lived explosives buried in current and former war zones worldwide, and, says the International Committee of the Red Cross, they kill or maim as many as 26,000 people annually.
