    Journal of Canadian Studies 45(3):5 (2011) PMID 22413177

    After the First World War, Canada's immigration policy became more restrictive and immigration more controlled.

It argues that fluoride's opponents were primarily motivated by what they saw as the health and environmental risks of adding fluoride to the water supply. They also believed that fluoridating the public water supply wa...
  6. “An Adamless Eden” in Ingonish: what Cape Breton's archives reveal.

    This essay reads the archived life of a Sydney-based woman - Ella Liscombe (1902–69) - as it was recorded in her diaries, notebooks, and especially her photograph album of a 1927 camping excursion to Ingonish, Cape Breton Island. This album features pictures of women in "cross-dress," and the wr...

Within this wider process, Montreal writers H.M....

    Journal of Canadian Studies 43(3):124 (2009) PMID 20715328

    Miriam Toews resists the conventional narrative of the adolescent leaving the small town, proposing instead that the community deserts Nomi Nickel. Nomi, facing maternal absence and the loss of her mother tongue, attempts to use linguistic and material fragments to connect word and world. Suffer...

    Beginning in the late 1980s with the release of Our Common Future by the World Commission on Environment and Development, followed by the development of international accords such as the 1992 Convention on Biological Diversity, international pressure to resolve Indigenous rights issues has been ...
  10. "But what is the object of educating these children, if it costs their lives to educate them?": federal Indian education policy in western Canada in the late 1800s.

    Journal of Canadian Studies 43(3):101 (2009) PMID 20715327

    Debates in the Canadian House of Commons in the last two decades of the nineteenth century revealed persistent differences between the Conservatives and the Liberals over federal Indian education policy and the administration of industrial schools.
