      The Agenda

      "The condition upon which man hath
      received liberty is eternal vigilance;
      which condition if he break, servitude
      is at once the consequence of his crime
      and the punishment of his guilt."

      ~ John Philpot Curran,
      Dublin 1800

      "A fig for those by law protected!
      Liberty's a glorious feast!
      Courts for cowards were erected,
      Churches built to please the priest."

      ~ Robert Burns

      A new anglo voice?

      by Richard Deschamps rdeschamps@astral.com 


      A new group currently gathering momentum is looking to act as an
      umbrella group to speak for federalist anglophones in Quebec.


      The group, called Canadian Rights in Quebec -- CRITIQ for short --
      has a similar mission to groups like Alliance Quebec; to promote linguistic
      equality and combat language discrimination.


      And it was created, in part, to counter the possibility of tougher language
      laws coming from the recently-installed PQ government.


      "They've been in the formation stages ever since the PQ got elected," says
      Mike Cohen,the Cote St. Luc city councillor who sat in on one of their
      meetings. "And I think it's comforting for the English community to know that
      there's a group like this that's establishing itself."

      Businessman Gary Shapiro is spearheading the movement, and among some
      of the other notables involved include former politicians Robert Libman and
      Gerry Weiner, Suburban editor Beryl Wajsman and political
      columnist Barbara Kay.

      Special Interview

      March 7, 2010

      On Language

      by BEN ZIMMER

      The interplay of English optics and French optique on
      Canada’s political scene has long fascinated Beryl Wajsman,
      president of the Montreal-based Institute for Public Affairs and
      editor of The Suburban, Quebec’s largest English-language
      weekly. “The ‘optique,?as it is called in very politically savvy
      Quebec, is everything,?he wrote in a 2007 column for
      Canada Free Press. Wajsman told me that optics and optique may
      have first commingled in Montreal around the time of the 1980
      referendum on Quebec’s sovereignty. Independence for the
      province was voted down, with the “No?side bolstered by a
      stirring speech from Pierre Trudeau at Montreal’s Paul Sauv?BR>Arena just days before the referendum. Trudeau’s bold
      intervention, Wajsman recalls, created some powerful optics.

      Alfred Apps says Wajsman has played a consultative role

      currently running unopposed–suggests the so-called
      “banned list?on which Wajsman appeared was less about
      meted out justice than it was a vestige of the old, bitter feud
      between Paul Martin and Jean Chrétien. “That list was
      created before the Gomery Commission had made any of its
      findings,?Apps said.

      Battling Hunger
      Institute`s Citizen-based solutions

      Elizabeth Nickson

      Behind the scrim of the noisy war on terrorism, the United States
      launched, in October, the largest domestic-policy initiative
      of the past 40 years. With US$65-billion potentially at stake,
      in the quick flourish of an executive order, faith-based charity
      became the biggest social experiment in history. Lucky
      for us, the Americans do all the dirty work. Canadians must
      watch their progress with enormous interest. As the
      Canadian Association of Food Banks makes clear, food-bank
      use in Canada reaches 778,000 people a month and has
      doubled since 1989. That's more than the entire population
      of New Brunswick, points out a press release from
      the organization, which appears to document its statistics
      meticulously. The solution? "A comprehensive policy
      to realize food security for all citizens," says the group.
      Anyone else smelling a Charter challenge? Noble
      as that would be, people are starving, and cannot wait for
      the "right to food" to be written into the Constitution.
      As Amy Sherman of the Hudson Institute says: "Kids
      are dying on the streets, single moms are making $6
      an hour. All hands on deck."

      So a few Montrealers have taken matters into their own very
      competent hands. A group of corporations and unions, at
      the instigation of The Institute for Public Affairs, under the
      stewardship of the magnetic Beryl P. Wajsman, have made
      a commitment, in perpetuity, to feed as many as
      half-a-million hungry Quebecers. This is Quebec civil
      society in action. Working together, without a penny
      from government to solve an immediate problem. According
      to Wajsman, Charles Seiden, the executive director of
      the Canadian Association of Food Banks "puts the
      number of Canadians suffering through, as he calls it,
      'food insecurity,' at three to four million." Not a pretty number
      , especially when you consider the billions that Ottawa's
      bloated bureaucracy flushes down the toilet on vanity projects.
      Wajsman and his partners are planning to extend
      their Quebec initiative across Canada.
      What Beryl Wajsman and his fellows are doing seems to be the
      Canadian version of a faith-based initiative. We must
      hope that he succeeds -- and that more citizens take back the
      fundamental responsibility for care of the
      poor from a government that has failed.

      On Social Justice
      The Issue No One Is Talking About

      The most unpleasant sound to a politician is silence. Just ask Ed Broadbent. The former leader of the New Democratic Party left Parliament in 1989 to pursue a career as a teacher and lecturer. But as he traveled the country talking up his favorite theme—the lingering “national disgrace?of child poverty—Broadbent was shocked by the degree of apathy. “No one paid attention,?he says.
      It was Broadbent who pricked the nation’s conscience 15 years ago by reminding citizens that thousands of Canadian youngsters went hungry every night. The message struck a chord with a population that had prided itself on being a global model of fairness. In 1989, a year after the N.D.P. won 43 seats in its best-ever federal showing, Broadbent leveraged the party’s clout in what was then a Tory-minority government to secure a resolution pledging to “eliminate?child poverty by 2000. At the time an estimated 1 in 6 Canadian children lived below the poverty line. Not only did the pledge go unfulfilled, but things have got worse. The number of people earning less than $11,000 a year grew during the 1990s by 34%. About a million Canadians under the age of 18 are in dire need, according to Campaign 2000, a national antipoverty group.

      And so the problem festers. True, much of the economic news is good: employment is at an “all-time high,?Bank of Canada economist Stéfane Marion told the Globe and Mail last week, adding, “We believe the economy could actually return to its production potential before the end of 2005.?But too many Canadians aren’t keeping up. According to Beryl Wajsman, president of Montreal’s Institute for Public Affairs, a third of the nation’s work force has less than two weeks?salary in the bank. Canada, Wajsman says, has only a “thin veneer of affluence.?BR> 
      Why aren’t we talking about this? Here’s one reason. While political leaders are scrambling to outbid one another with plans for spending the nearly $3 billion surplus stored up over a tough decade of budget cuts, few seem willing to risk appealing to the better angels of our nature. In 1968 Pierre Trudeau won Canada’s heart by promising a “just society.?The fear mongering that has come to dominate the campaign—the Liberals began airing TV spots last week implying that Canadians were at risk from guns, pro-lifers and foreign wars—suggests that party tacticians believe today’s voters are interested only in getting through the night safely. Wajsman doesn’t buy it. “They’re not giving the electorate enough due,?he says. “Social justice is the bread-and-butter issue of our time, but it takes political courage to bring this up.?/FONT>

      A Tale of Two Nazanins
      A Victory for Valor

      Saturday, February 03, 2007


      To the editors
      Re: "A Credit to Her Crown"

      The Post is to be commended for highlighting Vancouver's Nazanin Afshin- Jam's successful campaign to free Nazanin Fatehi from Tehran's infamous Evin prison. Ms. Fatehi languished in prison for two years after being sentenced to death for stabbing a man who was trying to rape her. Since there were not four male witnesses to the attempted rape, as required by Shariah law, Ms. Fatehi was convicted of premeditated murder. Her case drew some media attention, but it was not until Ms. Afshin-Jam -- 2003 Miss World Canada -- took the lead that the world really took notice. The decision by Iran's judiciary to reverse itself is almost unprecedented.
      At a recent Public Affairs of Montreal conference on "Questions of Values: Ways of Response to the Islamist Challenge," Ms. Afshin-Jam used Ms. Fatehi's story as a case study, illustrating the embedded discrimination that exists under Shariah Law. In this age of universal deceit, when as George Orwell wrote, "merely speaking the truth is a revolutionary act," Ms. Afshin-Jam's actions are truly a passionate profile in courage. Many in Canada like to argue that we are a "reasonable" society, not a passionate one. Yet the two are not mutually exclusive.

      Passion is not the opponent of reason. Fear is. And lives fuelled by fear are not very much at all.

      Beryl P. Wajsman, president, Institute for Public Affairs of Montreal

      Nazanin Afshin-Jam (l.) at Amnesty International's World Day Against
      the Death Penalty in Berlin demonstrating for Nazanin Fatehi

      As many of you know we have focused much attention on air, and given moral and material support from the Institute, to the singularly heroic work of human rights activist Nazanin Afshin-Jam in her efforts to free 18-year old Nazanin Fatehi from Tehran’s notorious Evin prison where she has languished for two years after being sentenced to death for stabbing the man who was trying to rape her. Fatehi’s case had drawn some world attention, but it was not until Afshin-Jam, who had already engaged in humanitarian work from Africa to Asia, put her life on hold to lead an international effort to save the life of this young girl facing the hangman’s noose because of Sharia law that the world sat up and took notice.

      Nazanin Afshin-Jam speaking at a recent Institute conference



      By Beryl Wajsman
      A Canadian Profile in Courage
      February 03, 2007

      “Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, they send forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from thousands of different centres of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.?

      ~ Robert F. Kennedy

      Many make the mistake that because we, as a society, strive for reason, that we must therefore abdicate passion. Yet passion is not the opponent of reason. Fear is. And a life fuelled by fear is not very much at all. Nazanin Afshin-Jam did not forget passion and did not submit to fear. In her single-minded pursuit of justice for Nazanin Fatehi she has served as an example for all Canadians making us realize that we are at our best when we transcend our narrow narcissisms and become involved in mankind’s transcendent yearnings for redemptive change.

      “It was a who’s who?at the
      Institute for Public Affairs of Montreal
      Security & Trade Conference

      Sunday, June 1, 2003

      Beryl Wajsman, president of the influential Institut des Affaires Publiques de Montreal, has just wrapped up the Institute’s 3rd Policy Conference. Entitled “Doing Business in a Dangerous World: Security & Trade in the Post Iraq Era?brought together major politicians, military and security officials and leading CEO’s.
      It was a who's who of intrigue at the by-invitation-only Conference held at the Club St. Denis. Former CIA head honcho James Woolsey was the keynote speaker and spent some time at a breakfast meeting with some high-powered Institute board members and Wajsman’s special invited guests.
      Retired General Charles Belzile was there, as were businessmen, lawmakers and intelligence experts The Hon. Perrin Beatty, Thomas d'Aquino, President & CEO of the Canadian Council of Chief Executives, Dale L. Watson, former Director of Counter-Terrorism for the FBI, Raymonde Folco, M.P., Michael F. Gallagher, Minister-Counsellor at the U.S. Embassy in Ottawa , John F. Angus, President of the Stonehenge Corporation and board member of UBS (Canada) and Patrick Gagnon, former M.P. and current President of Protocol Strategies
      But it was Canadian Alliance MP Stockwell Day who made everyone laugh when he joked to Woolsey he'd love to be an undercover diplomat for the U.S. intelligence agency: "I'd love to tell people my last name is Bond, only trouble is I'd have to say, 'Hello, I'm Stock Bond.' "

      4th Institute Policy Conference

      Québec and Israel:

      "A Challenge to the Content of our Character and the Courage of our Conscience"

      Israeli Foreign Ministry North American Director Aharon Yaar,
      Ronald Denom (SNC), Nino Colavecchio (Canadian Italian Congress)

      The Institute has just concluded it's first Quebec-Israel Conference on Civil Society held July 7th at the Club St-Denis in Montréal. This historic encounter was the first time that leaders of every sector of Quebec met with representatives of the Government of Israel on a broad-based summit agenda. Political, economic and cultural relations were covered by an important and compelling assembly of leaders. Four Israeli officials, including Aharon Yaar, Director of the North American Division of the Foreign Ministry of Israel and newly appointed Montreal Consul-General Marc Attali attended. We are proud that all sectors of Quebec were represented including business, labor, government, cultural groups, media and academe. Among the notable guests were Henri Mass? President of the FTQ, Guy Bouthillier of the Sociét?St-Jean Baptiste, Andr?Pratte of La Presse, Francis Bellido, President of the Sociét?Generale de Finance (Sant?, Nino Colavecchio, President of the Congress of Italo-Canadians, Jean E. Fortier, President of the Conseil des Relations internationales de Montréal, Danielle Laberge, Vice-Rector of UQAM and Ronald Denom, Senior Vice-President of SNC-Lavalin International. Other participants from the business community included Myriam Truchon, Director of Public Affairs and Environment of Hydro-Québec, Edith Ducharme of CDP Capital and Alain Bonneau of Montreal International.

      When we we were asked to organize this conference we were quite pleased to accept because for us at the Institute, the support of Israel, without implying a blanket endorsement of all its policies, represents the support of a democracy and that is as much a part of the progressive agenda as the other causes we have represented, defended and participated in such as the compensation fight for the Duplessis orphans with Jacques Hébert, the plight of refugees with Sœur Andrée Menard, the protection of the homeless with housing co-ops O.E.I.L. and ROMEL, and the opposition to bank mergers with the Community Coalition for Re-investment. The fight for social justice is global and we should never be so smug as to think is stops at our borders.

      Les liens entre le peuple juif, l’Israël et le Québec sont longs et profonds. C’est ici que Louis-Joseph Papineau aida ?mener le combat qui permis l’émancipation totale des juifs en 1832, et ce huit ans avant l’Angleterre. C’est ici que des leaders syndicaux québécois appuyés par des syndicalistes d’origine italienne et juive ont créé ?travers les années 30, 40 et 50 l’état qui peut se vanter d’avoir, avec l’Italie et l’Israël, le plus important pourcentage de travailleurs syndiqués de l’Occident. Les premiers remous intellectuels visant ?bâtir une sociét?distincte se sont inspirés de ce qui se faisait de mieux au monde en matière gouvernementale, c’est ainsi que le ?Guide des patriotes ?de Marcel Chaput proposait plusieurs les institutions israéliennes comme exemples pour le Québec. Finalement, nous pouvons pas oublier que 20% de la population d’Israël ont le francais comme langue maternelle.

      Les modèles québécois et israéliens d’intervention de l’état pour la justice sociale sont par mis les plus inclusifs et compatissants au monde. L’Israël fait aujourd’hui face ?beaucoup des mêmes problèmes économiques et défis syndicaux que le Québec a si bien gér?depuis les trente dernières années. Le Québec a une expertise économique unique ?partager, notamment la création du Fonds Solidarit? Parallèlement, l’Israël est devenu un modèle mondial parmi les nations plus petites pour ses succès dans la mise en place d’une infrastructure technologique sans pareil, et le Québec peut bénéficier de cette expertise pour l’expansion des secteurs de biotechnologie, de pharmaceutiques et d’aviation.

      There is a need for heightened understanding between the two societies, and we already have indications that this first meeting is leading to exciting new initiatives of co-operation in the political, economic and cultural arenas.

      We invite you to view the opening address of the Conference entitled
