Legalize All Drugs!

Legalize it! All of it! Don't celebrate that marijuana is legal in more and more places even without the guise of medical use. It's not enough and this isn't just a question of our civil liberties. Sure, "it's my body... Continue Reading →

Truth & Identity: Verbs, Nouns & Climbing Ladders

I was watching a few Joe Rogan clips, as I am accustomed to doing, and stumbled upon an interesting idea, or rather the framing of an idea, that I had never come across before (I feel silly saying that because... Continue Reading →

To Tell The Truth: What It Really Means To Be Honest

Recently, I've run into and had to deal with a couple of addicts. I think of them now because no one lies more than an addict. An acquaintance of mine is going through a terrible time and I've tried to... Continue Reading →

Free Speech & Censorship: A Look At Sacha Baron Cohen’s Speech At An ADL event & TYT Reaction

I watched this video in the middle of the night (couldn't sleep again). If you don't watch TYT, it's a great place to get US and international news from a leftist perspective. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OodpUmYk3MY Sacha Baron Cohen RIPS FacebookThe Young Turks... Continue Reading →

Lest We Forget: The Importance Of Suffering

When I was young boy, maybe 7 or 8, I remember sitting at the head of my kitchen table after I got into an argument with my friends. I have absolutely no recollection of the argument itself, but it was... Continue Reading →

All I Really Have To Say

I once wrote on the back of the cover of a book I loved passionately, "My last words: I had something profound to say but I've forgotten what it was." I hadn't actually forgotten; sometimes we say things but what... Continue Reading →

Ellen Degeneres, George W. Bush & The Trump Impeachment

When Ellen Degeneres is sitting next to George W. Bush, we should consider all the evil we accept in our society. How we laugh at the war criminals when they are on late night talk shows, or talk about how charming and funny they are. The people that were tortured, the people that are dead, the people that sill live in prison or in constant fear for their lives are not laughing.

The Problem With New Atheism: Secularism Requires A Plurality

The beauty of secularism was that it was tolerant; it could accept a plurality of people and belief systems. This new brand secularism is as orthodox and stringent as religion used to be (at least in how it had been represented).

Suicide Is Not A Mental Health Issue, It’s A Social Issue

I've been living in pretty much total isolation for more than a year. It's amazing what a broken mind and broken spirit can do to your body too. I'm unrecognizable. This isn't about why, its about what I can do... Continue Reading →

Bill 21: In Defense of Culture

I understand that there is a certain appeal to living in a 'secular' society, and I also understand why someone might feel uncomfortable at the sight of the hijab. I think that discomfort is misguided but comes from an honest and decent place. To ask someone to stop wearing the hijab is akin to asking them to stop being a woman, and just be a human. That's just not who we are. To be human is to believe in things that don't exist, to make our lives mean something more than they do, and to actualize our collective imaginations. Anything less is precisely inhuman.

Bell Let’s Talk: The Implications of How We Define Mental Illness

Mental illness has long been a sanitized issue. When we discuss mental health, we discuss it in a way that does not deviate from the dominant ideological practices of our time. I want to discuss mental illness in a way that gives dignity and power back to those who suffer from it and expose the social norms and practices that work to make mental illness worse.

Fossil Fuel Energy Is Too Cheap (And So Is Labour)

There are protests all over Canada over the Trudeau pipeline. The protests are more than just about the pipeline. Canadians are fed up about climate change talk and then same old, same old, when it comes to taking action. I... Continue Reading →

Snow Day!

There is a massive snowfall in Montreal today. The weathermen (weather person sounds too weird, is there an alternative?) had lied to us all week about snow coming but finally it came and just in time. You see because it... Continue Reading →

Anxious

The last few days, and especially today have been busy. It just sort of all piles up when you're too busy being miserable. I feel exhausted and as if something terrible just happened. No reason for it; my day went... Continue Reading →

Update On Tribunal

God damn! Having to prepare has been hard but I've done the first stages and that's always the hardest part. Reading their version of events is just hard to do. Makes me mad, sad, every emotion you could feel. My... Continue Reading →

Update On Court Against My Former Employer

I was feeling pretty sad the last couple of days but today I found out that the tribunal I'm set to go to in April, grants us subpoena power! I was SO sure that it wasn't the case and that... Continue Reading →

I Hate The Super Bowl

I'm a football fan. Every year I play fantasy football too. I started watching football when I was a kid and when the Dallas Cowboys were winning championships. All these years later I'm still cheering on the Cowboys when championships... Continue Reading →

Dear Diary: PTSD & Fighting For Justice

After all this time, I still feel in shock over what they did to me. Some days I feel like I died, like the person I was is gone. I'm lucky in some ways. At least my labour board took... Continue Reading →

My Former Employer & Coworkers Are Hilarious

I'm reviewing some documents for the tribunal. It's in April but I know how these things go so I won't get my hopes up; it can easily be delayed. My lawyer said they want to settle. I'm not settling unless... Continue Reading →

One Reason I’m Happy To Be A Man

This just came to mind as I was writing about a former coworker who sexually harassed me. She was one of these big girls who spends a lot of time on Tinder and talks about all her bad experiences. You... Continue Reading →
