Congratulations, we played ourselves

Opinion|By Amy Kishek
With promises for an early mandate tax cut and pipeline push, it seems we were foolish to simply assume the Liberals would govern as progressives with the support of NDP, Greens, and Bloc.
Opinion|By Amy Kishek, Erica Ifill
What strategic voting will result in is a U.S.-style, two-party system, where the Liberals and Conservatives benefit from gaslighting Canadians into voting for them.
Opinion|By Amy Kishek, Erica Ifill
What we see in the Atwater Market incident is a greater concern for white comfort and forgiveness than for Jagmeet Singh and candidates and Canadians like him.
Opinion|By Amy Kishek, Erica Ifill
What the future of work means for human resources strategies, pay and benefits, and labour protections are all consequences that we should be talking about—but aren't.
Opinion|By Amy Kishek, Erica Ifill
What we need now is a closer look at what it means when elected officials engage in racist actions, and what bearing it has on how they govern.
Opinion|By Amy Kishek, Erica Ifill
From the so-called front-runners, there is no grand design, there are no bold ideas, there are no breakout candidates. What’s so important about this election is what we’re not talking about.

Continued silence on environmental justice will leave space for eco-fascist views to take hold, virtually erasing any efforts made on reconciliation and equity to date.
Opinion|By Amy Kishek, Erica Ifill
We need to envision and support a new way of doing electoral politics, and we need to give space and support for leaders from Black, Indigenous, and racialized communities to lead us there.
Opinion|By Amy Kishek, Erica Ifill
Hollow catchphrases and platitudes are not enough. Anti-racism efforts are a substantive issue that merit the same rigorous and nuanced debate and diligence as any other crisis facing our country.
Opinion|By Amy Kishek, Erica Ifill
If the Greens are truly looking to make inroads, they should not be soliciting tired advice from politicos of yesteryear.
Opinion|By Amy Kishek, Erica Ifill
This election is already acrimonious, but what confidence can we have in news if the media can’t exercise enough digital judgement to decipher the wheat from the chaff?
Opinion|By Amy Kishek
Politics is everywhere, and everything is political. Neutrality itself is a hoax. Our experiences, our beliefs, and how we live in the world are political, and they are also politicized without our say.
Opinion|By Amy Kishek, Erica Ifill
Stolen land and stolen sisters are not part of Canada’s past, or a shameful history we can simply apologize for. It’s happening now.
No matter how successful a Black person may be, gatekeepers are always there to remind them that race plays a role in society, whether you are on your way to earning your PhD or your place in Parliament.
Come October, Andrew Scheer will be asking Canadians for their vote and but trust that he can keep Indigenous people, Canadians of colour, LGBTQ2S Canadians, and religious minorities safe from members of his own party.
