[NEWS] Four Globe and Mail links

I’ve mentioned that I like the Globe and Mail, right?

  • Columnist Margaret Wente doesn’t think much of Canadian federal Liberal Party leader Michael Ignatieff, arguing that partly because many Canadians can’t empathize with a public intellectual like Ignatieff, the Conservative Party has taken over Canadian centrism.
  • Ingrid Peretz writes about how the almost ridiculous toughening–criminalization, even–of normal crossings of the US-Canadian frontier is starting to separate the Québec community of Stanstead from its Vermont sister community of Derby Line.
  • The Toronto Humane Society, under new management, might euthanize most of the remaining two hundred animals in the shelter–apparently, mainly, animals with long-term conditions and otherwise unadoptable–before rebooting.
  • Doug Saunders writes about how the Moscow subway suicide bombings represents the latest spillover of the growing Russian war in the North Caucasus into Russia proper.
