  • Despite the departure of Hosni Mubarak 11 months ago, the regime he ruled is still for the most part in place. Political power remains in the hands of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces. Yet labour and social forces opposing the government are still strong. To find out more about these forces in Egyptian society. we contacted Joel Beinin, professor of history and Middle Eastern history at Stanford University.

8:40: Music: Tessa Kautzman – “Worlds Apart”

8:44: Action Items

Same Sex Marriage Reversal Reversal

I want to be very clear that the Government has no intention of reopening the debate on the definition of marriage.

This case today involved the fact that, under current law, some marriages performed in Canada could not be dissolved in Canada.

I will be looking at options to clarify the law so that marriages performed in Canada can be undone in Canada.

  • So, what’s the moral of this story?
    • Hidden Agenda?
    • Incompetence in the Justice Dept.?
      • Didn’t we just give them a kajillion dollars to fix all the “crime” in this country?
