Quiet weeks. Lots of work, lots of writing. There is an election going on, but I've been working on it a lot less than I expected.

(There's only so much a person with problems with strangers and crowds can do for an election campaign. I've hung a few signs, done a little data entry, vacuumed a campaign office - and that's it so far.)

We're once again going to the polls to see if we can dislodge he worst prime minister we've ever had. The polling stats for the different parties are roughly where they were last time, though there are so many close races that a few numbers one way or the other can make a lot of difference.

I'm really hoping that non-voters will get more engaged, or that Harper will make some misstep that finally defeats them - though given all he's already done, it's hard to imagine what that would be.

In other election news, a CBC show this morning discussed scientific evidence that people vote more based on a politician's looks than their ideas. Anyone who thinks that applies to Canada has never seen photos of our leaders.

So I got back my novel, and the response was...confusing. I got not one but two letters from two different editors. One was an encouraging, the same a before. She was encouraging, but had problems with it still - some I agreed with, some I didn't - and didn't think my style was mature enough yet. She also thought it wasssThe other was a standard rejection letter.

Neither wanted to see it again. But I feel like I've been written two dissenting opinions by a supreme court.

So now begins the great re-edit. I already have my next publishing house picked out, and I've begun my outline. I'll save the heavy work on it for after I finish novel number three, which is a lot of fun and a nice break from heavier work of the main novel.

Nope. Not getting discouraged. I won't let myself. Not until I've been rejected by as many houses as rejected Harry Potter :)


So it was a huge day for human rights in Canada yesterday - the biggest hurdle in the fight for adding trans folk to the Canadian Human Rights act. Now, it hasn't passed yet. There are still hurdles - our evil leader could still find a Machiavellian means to kill the bill, as he did with our big climate change bill. Our democratic mechanisms are rusting closed in this country.

Still, it's made it this far. Props for that go to politicians Bill Siksay, Megan Leslie, and Olivia Chow from my party the NDP. But outside the House of Commons, the one person most responsible for this bill's passage is my dear friend and roommate, [profile] montrealais. He's been a one-activist army, talking to the media, organising actions, setting up a website, writing letters, and getting others to do the same.

If it goes through, now, its effect is limited - protection from discrimination in government agencies (including the military), in airports, in federal housing, and in banks. Next step is the provincial battles, and a Charter challenge court case for the rest. While its scope is limited, though, it's the first time the Canadian government has stated that trans folk are equal citizens. That's worth celebrating.

Marched in the Pride parade again. Haven't missed marching in about a decade, I think, though it terrifies me being at the centre of such a large crowd. I hold on tightly to my banner and don't let go, and it's okay.

But it's still important. And it's still something deeply important to me.

Yesterday, I tabled for the New Democratic Party at community day. We were visited by Jack Layton (leader of the party) and Olivia Chow (our immigration critic). I'd met them before, but they actually hung out awhile. I helped Olivia put up banners.

It was tiring - I've had next to no sleep this week. But it was nice to be part of it again, and tired as I am, I am sad to see it gone so fast.

Also, the rain held off until the parade was over, so it was a rainless parade again. Clearly Mother Nature is on our side :)

There's more to say than could be said about what happened in Toronto this week. It was revolting what happened to Canadian citizens on Canadian soil. I've seen police brutality close up, of course there was Quebec 2001. But never anything on this scale, never anything so blatant. And never has so much been captured on camera before for us to see.

There's so much I could link, and did on Facebook - which itself was a small fraction of the evil perpetrated there. And let's not mince words or hide behind euphemisms. This was evil. You know it by the awful feeling in your gut when you watch it.

Two things were more haunting for me than anything else - for others too, clearly, as they've gone viral. The first is Tommy Taylor's powerful account on Facebook of his arrest. The other is this moment of peaceful protesters being attacked while they sing "O Canada." This is now my favourite rendition of our national anthem, and the only one that stirs my patriotism:

Yet 73% of the country think the police did a good job. And that's way too high for the right-wing nutjobs in this nation - after all, only 39% voted for Harper.

I wondered how could anyone think that? How could that be thought after the bloodied journalists and the trapped activists singing hippie protest songs bloodied by batons? While other pictures show police standing by and looking bored while anarchists - in suspiciously new brand-name black clothing - break windows and set fire to police cars?

How could they read the descriptions of the 40-person cages full of peaceful protesters and random passersby (tourists who are never coming back here again) as they stood up for 16, 18, 24 hours with nothing more than a dixie cup or two of water and a toxic sandwich, and not be sickened?

How do they rationalize the targeting of gays, and anyone who spoke French? The lies the police told? The officer who threatened a journalist with rape? The tasering of a man with a pacemaker, the abuse of a man with cerebral palsy? How do they justify the scale - the camera panoramas that show it wasn't just "a few bad apples"?

Then I realized they didn't need to, because they didn't see it and they didn't read it. It's not in their world.

"Two solitudes" is our favourite cliché. It applies here. Not English or French, or central Canada and the rest. Not even the suited men (and one two women) in the conference and the people outside, though there it applies better. In this country, those who got the story mostly through old media and those who got it mostly through new media are the two solitudes. They got two different narratives.

Old media wasn't always awful. The Toronto Star got it right from the first days. CBC and the Globe & Mail - our two great bastions of old media - got better after day one. Even the National Post worked up some outrage.

Most failed absolutely, though. Just a guy breaking a window and a couple of burning police cars. That was the story. While we new media types saw the unedited footage of bloodied innocents and unprovoked assaults, for most old media it was just a story of hooligans captured.

We say that we "consume" old media and "use" new media. But that's simplistic. Both get used, both get consumed. But who does the using, and who the consuming?

The old media moguls make a big show of using new media. They can tweet, they can post to YouTube, they can set up a Facebook account. But they still imagine themselves as the talkers, with others as listeners. They still aren't listeners themselves, which was painfully obvious on the CBC's and Globe's first day of coverage - until journalists they knew were hit. They still don't believe that non-journalists have something worth saying.

I think the violence and horror will probably be one of the defining moments of our generation. That may sound bombastic, but ask someone who was a teen or twentysomething in the Sixties how many hippies they knew - the answer is probably zero, though they now define the era.

But I also think this will be one of the moments where we look back and say, "That was a nail in the coffin of old media." It was one of those moments we called "watershed" when we can easily visualize a gradual change.

No, I won't be cutting this one. I don't want this one to be optional.

This week, the bill I proposed about LGBT veterans was profiled in both Xtra and Slap Upside the Head.

Hopefully this remains an issue. Maybe after the dark days are over -- after somebody throws Harper's ring into Mount Doom or something, and we get a prime minister who isn't a national embarrassment -- these veterans can actually get the compensation they deserve.

I did a quick update on my historical site about it here.

Happy Midsummer/Litha to those who celebrate it!

I've lived like a hermit for much of the last week, which I think I needed. I'm about one-third through the a revision of what looks to be a complete second novel, but other than that and work, I've had a lazy week.

I am quite proud of this, though. That resolution was my idea. [livejournal.com profile] montrealais encouraged me to draft a resolution, which he helped edit and presented. He also brought it to MP Peter Stoffer's attention.

Parliament's out so I'll have to wait until after summer to see where it goes from here. It's highly unlikely that it'll pass -- private members' bills rarely do, and even in a minority government, the Opposition parties can't force the government to act on a bill that involves spending money.

Still, it's a thrill that something I wrote is going to be debated in government. And maybe it'll start the ball rolling on a debate that'll end in a real action. It'll probably have to wait until we have a prime minister who's not evil, though.

Ignatieff chickened out, at least for now. There's still a slim chance he'll vote it down on amendments, but it looks like Flaherty is pretending to be reasonable and they're going to reach a compromise.

Political stuff continues )

Well, it's been quite a week. Harper's bought himself some time, but at a massive cost of credibility. Ontario's economy is getting worse and Quebeckers are disillusioned. You don't take power in this country without the two most-populated provinces.

It's too sdoon to tell for sure, but I'm trying to keep optimistic. The Liberals are trying to push Dion off the plank faster than before, for having committed the sin of poor video editing and failure to hire a decent courrier service. I really hope that decent judgement prevails on their part, or that Michael Ignatieff suddenly shaves his head, renounces the world, and runs off to a Buddhist monastery in Laos or something like that.

Meanwhile, Martha Hall-Findlay said on CBC's The House that this last week Conservatives have been offering highly-illegal bribes to Liberals to get them to cross the floor.

If the Liberals don't pull a David Emerson en masse, and don't chicken out, Harper's lost. And if they do, it's hard not to imagine the Liberal Party getting wiped out in favour of the NDP next election. They'd have no money, no trust from the public, no common principle to rally around. In some ways, this really is their last chance.

Poor Dion. I feel sorry for the guy -- he was the best of the three presented at the last Liberal leadership convention. And frankly, I wonder if the pundits have it backwards and he prevented an even greater collapse of the Liberal Party than would've happened under Ignatieff or Rae.

So I'm on the last page of my novel, and I find I can't quite concentrate on it. Not that it's almost over -- there's still one long edit and one quick edit left. I suspect it's too much caffeine. I did most of this edit during the election.

I made two updates to my LGBTQ history and politics website this week. Once, before the election, discussed the records of the major Canadian parties on LGBTQ issues. I tried to be as non-partisan as possible, mentioning the NDP's few failures, and tried to mention the few Conservatives who have a decent record.

I also tried to be non-partisan on my in-depth profiles of out federal members of parliament.

Other than that, the post-election period has been like finishing a really nasty final exam mixed with the end of a blind date that was somewhat awkward, with a little bit of a tough dream-job interview thrown in. I had it fairly easy as these go; most campaigners in all parties work hard and at brutal hours in high-stress conditions -- generally at no pay and with public contempt -- simply because they believe the world could be a better place.

No one ever spares a thought for them, though, unless they've done it themselves, or unless they've seen it close up.

I'll return to more gentle things than politics in my posts for the near-future, like philosophy and book reviews. But I do reserve the right to mock Sarah Palin.
felis_ultharus: The Pardoner from the Canterbury Tales (Default)
I won't pretend I was hoping for a better result for the NDP, but we did do well. We took a fair bit of Liberal heartland in Ontario away from them, lost only one seat and took an additional eight.

In a net eleven ridings where we'd finished third or worse before, we finished second. In Quebec, we boosted our share of the vote 60%, and Mulcair kept his seat. In our riding, we went from 9% to 16%. We did well.

And the Liberals were well and truly spanked for having voted for Harper's retrograde legislation 43 times, for having supported his nasty budgets, and so on. This country is polarized, and there's no place in government for a party that neither supports nor opposes Harper. They're just taking up space.

(Maybe now that they're feeling the crunch of the math -- and getting fewer seats than they deserve on the basis of popular vote -- that they'll actually give proportional representation some serious consideration.)

As for the Conservatives, if you're wondering why you're waking up with an extra seventeen in the House of Commons, look no further than the 42% of adult citizens in this country who didn't even bother to cast a ballot. That's our worst ever, and a depressing statement on the electorate.

The Conservatives got their people out -- passed the word through prayer halls and churches, and brought in people who think there on a sacred mission from God to support the party, most of whose MPs are evangelical Christians.

Because the other parties couldn't convince their voters to get to the polls, the Cons got about 5% more than the polls said they should have, and they poll high -- and they poll high, so they should have been even lower. That 5% or more made a major difference, as tiny numbers do in Canadian elections.

Yeah, there's always a small number who couldn't for legitimate reasons -- family emergency or serious accident on polling day, or a lack of real ID in spite of how easy they've made it. I know someone in the last category. For the most part, though, it's just the worst form of human laziness, and I suspect the country as a whole is going to suffer gravely for it.

Today's the election day. It's in the hands of the voters now.

The tree across the street from our apartment went orange overnight. I'm taking it as a good portent.

Portents aside, parties, pundits, and pollsters from across the politicial spectrum think the NDP's going to do better tonight than last election. The only question is how well.

Of course, it doesn't matter how many people like us if they don't vote. All NDP supporters who haven't been to the polls yet have to get there today. You can find your polling station by typing your postal code in here -- it's usually just a couple blocks away.

You need some proof of who you are, but they'll take pretty much anything -- photo ID, a bank card with your name on it, a neighbour who'll vouch for who you are. Proof of address -- like a bill or bank statement or those voter cards that arrive by mail -- are also needed.

ETA: Just a reminder -- it's highly illegal to reveal election results anywhere the polls haven't closed yet. That means that when the polls close here in Eastern Daylight Time at 9:30 pm, it's illegal to let anyone on the Prairies or BC know the results.

The TV stations do a news blackout, but most people don't realize that it includes all forms of communication -- including e-mail and social networking sites. Elections Canada has indicated that it plans to enforce the law against social networking sites, and they don't make idle threats.

It becomes legal to publish the results from coast-to-coast-to-coast at exactly half an hour after midnight.

I'm a political junky, and the election in Canada and another in the US (and a possible third in Quebec) have made me fall off the wagon.

I've been doing what I can this election. Severe social anxiety prevents me from doing the greet-the-public thing which is, of course, what the party needs most of. I've been helping where I can, mostly in number-crunching and a little sign-posting.

I've also been keeping up with what gets said in cyberspace and the media, trying to get a sense of where the pundits are and -- on the other side of an enormous gulf -- where ordinary netizens are. I've also been keeping abreast of the more traditional media.

That said, I caught little of the debates. They didn't interest me much because I already know the leaders and their records, so the reaction to the debate is more what I want to see. Getting most of my news in print and cyber-print, I've never had to hear Harper's Muzak-esque voice for longer than single soundbites. The drone is quite painful, a vaguely insect sound.

(His handlers have been working on him, though -- they've managed to reduce his creepy smile from a little. Now he looks like he might give off a warning hiss before devouring a baby.)

Still, I did catch a little of the French debate -- I walked in on the funniest moment where the party leaders were being forced to say something nice to the person to their left. Harper praised Layton for voting for a couple of Harper's more progressive bills (on Quebec, and the apology for residential schools). Layton said he considers Dion an "honest man."

I did feel sorry for May that she got stuck with Harper. All she could say was that he was "a good father."
felis_ultharus: The Pardoner from the Canterbury Tales (Default)
For the record, the NDP have a lead the Liberals in five provinces out of ten -- BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Quebec. In the other five, the Liberals' lead is shrinking. This is based on data compiled from every poll by every polling firm. Meanwhile, Conservative numbers have begun to dip.

For the political pundits, this won't come as any surprise. "Liberal" has long been a dirty word in the West, and has since become a dirty word in Quebec, and Dion's shrinking support is well-known.

Outside of political circles, though, I'm still hearing friends in BC and here in Quebec talk about voting Liberal to stop Harper. A lot of people haven't gotten the message -- in half the provinces (including BC and Quebec) voting Dion will actually help propel Harper to a majority.

The way the numbers are going, it's possible that'll be upgraded to ten provinces by the end of the election.

ETA: We're at 22% and rising now, with three weeks to go. That's crucial, because 26% is the magic number, when you're no longer disadvantaged by our first-past-the-post system.

To put that in perspective, we got about 17.5% of the popular vote, which in a better system would have given us 52 seats. We got 29. The Liberals got a little over 30%, entitling them to 93, not the 103 they got. Harper got a bit more than 36%, entitling him to 111, but got 124.

Majorities are formed in this country with about 40% of the vote.

Just thought I'd pop in to wish a Happy Mabon to those who celebrate it, and a Happy Fall Equinox to those who don't.

I've been scarce lately, and I hope no one feels neglected. After work this last week or so, I've mostly been working on the campaign, though not nearly as much as the heroic [livejournal.com profile] montrealais.

I've also somehow got to almost the one-fifth mark in phase four of my edit. I think there's going to be a phase five now, but that's okay because none of my editors will have time to read it before November anyway.
felis_ultharus: The Pardoner from the Canterbury Tales (Default)
So we're having a federal election up here, too. Parliament has been "dissolved," a phrase that makes me think more of hydrochloric acid than anything political.

I'm limiting my participation on the campaign, though I'm doing more work on it than usual. It may be selfish of me, but my social anxiety is still really bad, and the way my stress levels are I'm realizing that I'm not fully recovered from my breakdown of seven years ago. I know my own psyche well enough to know that if I push myself too hard, I'll break.

The Conservatives are out and running with their campaign, based almost entirely on Stéphane Dion's "leadership." I keep thinking about Canadian humanist John Ralston Saul's point that a political obsession with leadership betrays fascist sympathies: "Leadership, after all, is the cry of unevolved, craven peoples frightened by the idea of individual responsibility."

Even worse, the Conservatives have released new ads, whose entire content is an American-style scene of Harper talking about how he doesn't get enough time to spend with his son these days.

I can understand how it came about -- Conservative strategists were trying to humanize this cold, anal-retentive economist they have for a leader. They're trying to offset that creepy smile that just seems to say. "I've just come from a nutritious breakfast of corn flakes, toast, orange juice, and the flesh of unbaptized babies."

Still, it's disturbing. In the US, you run on your family, not policies. In Canada, we've always avoided that. Hell, Jean Chrétien's alcoholic, ex-heroin-addict son went to jail for rape while Chrétien was prime minister, and it barely caused a blip on the media. You're considered a Canadian political trivia buff if you can name the current prime minister's spouse without checking Wikipedia.*

I don't want that to change, but of course Harper is an addict of all things American. So it's unlikely to change unless Canadians toss him out.

It also makes me wonder if he's got some kind of dark family secret -- the family-values types always do. I also wonder how his daughter feels about not being mentioned in the ad. Maybe she's the family secret.

But if he does manage to make this election about his capacity to reproduce, then Layton has him matched child-for-child. Maybe future elections will also be determined by other Darwinian factors -- ability to catch prey and rend it with one's teeth. Perhaps future politicians will be expected to have prominent jaws and sagittal crests.

Kim Campbell had divorced, Mackenzie Bowell was a widower, and Mackenzie King and Bennet never married.

I finished Naomi Klein's No Logo yesterday. Like so many other books, it's one I've read a couple sections during my undergrad and post-grad years. Now, post-school, I finally had a chance to read it.

I'd been expecting either a radical, head-in-the-clouds manifesto, or a sincere-but-agonizing-slog through the myriad horrors of neo-liberal economic fanaticism. What I got was clear-headed, clear-eyed, careful analysis written in plain English and backed up with heavy research and personal interviews.

It's less a manifesto, and more like a history book, documenting the successes and failures of recent anti-corporate movements, trying to figure out what works and what doesn't, and where to go from here.

She uses much of the same ideas and explores the same concepts about commons, democracy, and the public good -- the same non-secular-but-humanist perspective -- as a group of other Canadian thinkers that risen to the fore in progressive circles: John Ralston Saul, David Suzuki, and Linda McQuaig. I think at this point we can pretty call them a movement -- the Canadian Humanist Movement sounds nice to me.

Of course, we aren't going to call them a movement, because that might imply we have a culture, or that it might matter - peu importe they're all internationally-recognized names in lefty political circles. Meanwhile, in other circles, the Conservatives have just finished gleefully eviscerating the arts -- this time explicitly killing arts projects that don't fit their neo-con worldview. And I'm sorely disappointed by the lack of outrage I'm seeing.

Last year, Margaret Atwood said of the Harperites' view on artists and writers, "They basically just hate us. You know it’s people who have never seen any arts in their own lives — they would rather not have gardens, they would rather have parking lots. They just think it’s a frill probably."

The problem is, the People-Who-Would-Rather-Not-Have-Gardens have power. Let's hope we can topple them before they turn this rich and wonderful country into a parking lot for their SUVs.

On that note, anyone who's in the three by-election areas -- Guelph, Westmount-Ville-Marie, or Saint-Lambert, please get out and vote. It's September 8th, unless Harper calls a general election. Remember, any vote not cast counts as an de facto endorsement of the winner.

I'll check my ephemerides when I get home, but I can't begin to imagine what alignment of the stars led to a less-atrocious edition of Go! this morning on CBC.

I admit, when Brent Bambury in the teaser said, "The state has no place in the bedrooms of the nation, but Go! does," I figured it was finally time the Canadian people took out a restraining order on Brent Bambury.

Yet the writing was okay, today, and he came across as something other than a frat boy. There was even something there I feel deserved to be called a joke: "The third anniversary is leather, but you have to wait for the fourth for handcuffs.”

There was also a Country-Western song about Jack Layton and Olivia Chow, so the fact that I didn't wince once during the program probably doesn't mean the show is getting better, but rather that I'm becoming inured to it.

On the other hand, Definitely Not the Opera still sounds like it's being written each week by a gaggle of fifteen-year-olds after their seventh joint.

ETA: Make that the ninth joint. Right now they're asking random strangers "Would you rather have the body of Chuck Norris and the head of Michael Moore, or vice versa?"

“You can cut the flower, but you cannot stop the coming of spring.”

This is my new favourite quotation. It comes from Malalai Joya, the Afghan parliamentarian and feminist who was tossed out of the Afghan parliament for vocally opposing the new regime, which has merely shifted power from the Taliban to the warlords. She said this after an attempt on her life.

Joya was a vocal opponent of the Taliban ever since she returned to her native Afghanistan at the age of 19. At a time when almost no one in the world could place Afghanistan on a map, she was a vocal opponent of the Taliban and a staunch supporter of democracy.

After the occupation of Afghanistan, the Western powers set up a parliament that was very much in the hands of warlords who were, in Joya's words, were "the most anti-women people in the society [of the Mujahideen]." For criticizing the drug lords and war criminals who are our allies, she was thrown out.

She'll be coming to Canada today, but you can bet she'll be ignored by both the government and most of the mainstream media, even though she's quite a famous figure worldwide.

Indeed, she's probably quite an embarrassment for the current pro-NATO-occupation government, who'd like this uppity woman to go away. They'd prefer her to shut up, I think, so that the big strong men can make Afghanistan a safe place for, uh, women to have an equal say.

I made my concluding entry on New France, on my other journal. It's mostly a summary of everything else.

I keep stumbling across various bits of trivia.

One 19th-century treatise on legal history says that residents of Roman Gaul had a tradition of trial-by-combat (the theory being that God gives victory to the one who's right). If a peasant and noble fought, the noble had to arrive without any armor but a shield, and any weapon but a staff. If he tried to cheat by showing up in armour and on a horse, these were taken from him, and he had to fight unarmed from a chair. If he got up, he would've been put to death.

I work today -- hopefully not tomorrow, but I'm not sure yet. And tonight, there's a benefit drag show for the NDP at Cleopatra.

So I've mostly bounced back from Tuesday's news. Things are returning to quasi-normal.

In a crisis, I explode. Then I put the pieces back together very quickly. I've mentally reorganized the next half-year, and quietly gone back to writing and working, which seems to be my life.

I've gotten ten pages written on the not-novel, and thinking about how I'll revise novel #1 when the second copy returns my way.

Tonight, I'm happy. I read A Midsummer Night's Dream -- Shakespeare's most fun comedy. And the anime we're watching would probably make anyone feel better about their own life.

I got a lot of writing done. I'm feeling appreciated at work. And -- and this will only make sense to 7 people on my friends-list -- I've learned a trick to dodging lightning. Sadly, this trick requires me to have my eyes open, which is more than I can manage tonight, so I shall have to save it for tomorrow. I can't seem to get past 60 bolts in my sonambulant state.

There shall be no game this weekend because [livejournal.com profile] montrealais will be at an NDP conference helping to hammer out the gay socialist agenda ^_^

If my erstwhile players are interested, I could go for another round of that game we played last time.
