Tarotscopes That Slay: New moon in Aries

I am writing this to you from my at-home sanctuary that my husband and I lovingly call the “spirit room”. It’s just the second bedroom in our tiny two-bedroom Los Angeles bungalow but it’s also a vortex for healing and love. I am gazing out the window at the bougainvillea in full bloom, creeping along the dark green fence that separates me from my neighbor. If I lean a little to the left I can see the giant cactus that I planted from a trimming my friend Michelle gave me years ago. The sky is a...

Justice, a billionaire Republican with no previous political experience leading a particularly high-risk state, has rambled through mixed messages on the virus, diminishing his credibility with some West Virginians who have said it's been a struggle to discern exactly what he wants them to do.

Jesse Eisenberg Down to Reprise Lex Luther Role

Jesse Eisenberg Down to Reprise Lex Luther Role The Snyder-verse has all but fallen to pieces, but the occasional remnants of that past would-be cinematic universe continue to pop up time and again. In this case, actor Jesse Eisenberg, who portrayed the villainous Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (and, to a lesser extent, in a post-credit Justice League scene), revealed his desire to shave his head once more for another go at the character. You can check out the full intervie...

Maybe Bill C-7 Meets the Letter of the Law, but Does It Meet the Spirit?

The federal government has now introduced changes to its legislation on medical assistance in dying (MAiD) in response to the Truchon decision. The existing Criminal Code provisions, enacted after the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in Carter, had been criticised on several grounds, particularly in requiring death to be “reasonably foreseeable” before someone is eligible for medical assistance in dying. The 2019 Quebec Superior Court decision in Truchon held that the foreseeability requiremen...

In so doing, he made pointed comments regarding Judy Wilson Raybould, Beverly McLauchin and Kim Campbell, three key influencers in making such appointments. He described the performance of Raybould Wilson as “sad”, and the reported statements of McLachlin and Campbell as “patronizing” or worse. (LaForme’s re...

US threatens to pull big tech’s immunities if child abuse isn’t curbed

The Department of Justice is proposing a set of voluntary principles that take aim at tech giants in an effort to combat online sexual abuse. The principles are part of a fresh effort by the government to hold the tech companies accountable for the harm and abuse that happens on their platforms, amid the past two years of brewing hostilities between the government and Silicon Valley. But critics also see it as a renewed push to compel tech companies to weaken or undo their “warrant-proof” encryp...

1996: Ruth Bader Ginsburg

It’s hard to believe now that there was ever a time when Ruth Bader Ginsburg was not known for her dissents. But for a stretch of 1996, the second woman appointed to the Supreme Court could imagine a triumphant future building on her work as visionary advocate in the 1970s—not just for women’s liberation, as she often said, but for women’s and men’s liberation. The prestigious Virginia Military Institute (VMI) still barred women, but when the case went to the Supreme Court, Ginsburg arg...

Canadian politician who said being LGBTQ is a ‘choice’ gets blocked

On Twitter, Décarie told followers that the Leadership Election Organizing Committee provided ...

Judicial Restraint Cannot Justify Blatant Abuses of Prohibitions in International Law

We all have our views and preferences about how reforms to the legal system and the creation of laws should occur. For example, despite being a regular participant in the justice system, I see the courts as a rather blunt instrument for the creation of law, and it is often ill-suited for dealing with complex social problems. The legislature, with all of the available expertise and resources of the state, is usually far better positioned to carefully examine, explore, and determine the most preci...
