THE OTTAWA ESTABLISHMENT 67

THE OTTAWA ESTABLISHMENT

THE PARTISAN FURY which has all but immobilized Canada’s Parliament for most of the past three years has, curiously enough, had little noticeable effect on the actual governing of the country. The economy is booming, Canadians are apparently as contented as ever, and to the cynical it might seem almost as though politicians had become irrelevant to government.

The French, the English, the Jews......and what's bugging everybody

GOING HOME has become increasingly difficult for me, because not enough remains as I remembered it. It's not a question of new styles in architecture — the Place Ville Marie in Montreal or Toronto’s city hall— for we’ve come to expect that of cities.

HOW THE SCOTCH PRACTISED THE BLACK ART OF EDUCATION

THE DUTTON HIGH SCHOOL in those days was a gaunt two-story building of white brick and hideous aspect. It stood in a small yard in which only ragweed and plantain reliably survived the dense foot traffic. Land in Canada is plentiful and inexpensive and thus not highly regarded.

CANADIANS nowadays borrow their baseball heroes from the United States for much the same reason that the hockey stars Americans cheer for are Canadians. The few Canadians who have played baseball in the big leagues within the memory of most fans either haven't been very good or very Canadian.

THE CASE FOR THE BIRTH-CONTROL PILL AND THE TROUBLING CASE AGAINST IT

HALF A MILLION Canadian women are using oral contraception pills. That was the estimate in July of the makers of one of the two major brands available in this country. The figure is undoubtedly obsolete already, since the company’s sales have been climbing steadily—a tenfold increase in two years.

FOR THE SAKE OF ARGUMENT

I DON'T SMOKE myself and I own no tobacco shares but lately I’ve begun to sympathize with the man who read so much about the perils of smoking that he finally kicked the habit. The reading habit. The case against smoking gets noisier and, at the same time, more respectable every year.

ON JAMES BOND: everyone's favorite moral simpleton

JAMES BOND made his first appearance in 1953, playing roulette at the Hotel Splendide in a French Riviera resort town. It was not a stunningly promising debut. The book in which he appeared, Casino Royale, Ian Fleming’s first spy novel, was loosely written and absurdly plotted.

MAILBAG

As a cerebral palsied person, I can say that David Freeman’s presentation is the worst kind of melodrama (The World of Can’t, July 4). Most of us are aware that millions of other people have disabilities and do not gloomily describe ourselves as “victims.”
