Actor playing MLK on stage twice hit with racial slurs in London, Ontario
'It struck me as ironic to be playing a role like this and to sort of come face to face with that'

An American actor who is set to portray Martin Luther King, Jr., in an upcoming stage production in London, Ont., says he’s twice had racial slurs hurled at him in recent days.

In one case, E.B. Smith was walking down the street with his co-star, when a man passing by in a car yelled “the N-word at us.”

The second time around, a man struck up a conversation with him at a restaurant and eventually swore at him, left and then returned to use the N-word in a follow-up exchange.

“It struck me as ironic to be playing a role like this and to sort of come face to face with that,” Smith told CBC Radio’s Afternoon Drive. “But it was also shocking to find it so, sort of, overtly, in London.”

Smith, whose father is black and mother is white, said he has been in Canada for six years and this was the first time he had “experienced something quite that aggressive.”

He didn’t challenge the people who antagonized him or report the incidents to the police, but that didn’t stop him from getting mad.

“There’s a lot of anger in those moments. You get hit with something like that and it’s clearly meant to demean, it’s clearly meant to dehumanize and frankly, it’s meant to provoke,” Smith said. “And so, I think all of those impulses are definitely there, but I was also very conscious of being a foreigner and a visitor to London and I also didn’t want to start anything.”

'Blatant misogyny' behind cuts to gender studies, Mt. A student says
Funding will allow students with declared minor to continue studies next year, but future of program unclear

Mount Allison University has come up with some funding to ensure students who have women and gender studies as their declared minor will be able to continue their studies next year.

The future of the program at the Sackville-based university, however, remains unclear.

The administration has committed $12,000, which is enough to hire a part-time person to teach two courses in 2016-17, acting program director Lisa Dawn Hamilton told CBC News late Friday afternoon.

Students may also be able to take courses offered by other programs, which could count toward their minor, said Hamilton.

“But they [the administration] haven’t guaranteed that,” she said. “They’ll be assessing it on a case by case basis,” with any alternate courses having to be pre-approved.

The funding news comes after about 50 students held a silent protest outside the Board of Regents meeting on Friday morning, alleging program budget cuts indicate gender-bias on the part of the administration.

“I think it’s really reflective of some blatant misogyny going on, and sexism, which is really unfortunate, but I really don’t think that that aspect can be discounted,” student organizer Katharyn Stevenson had said.

What happens next in Aleppo will shape Europe’s future | Natalie Nougayrède
If there were any doubts about Vladimir Putin’s objectives in Syria, the recent Russian military escalation around this city must surely have set them aside
By Natalie Nougayrède

In fact, as the fate of Aleppo hangs in the balance, these events have – as no other perhaps since the beginning of the war – highlighted the connections between the Syrian tragedy and the strategic weakening of Europe and the west in general. This spillover effect is something Moscow has not only paid close attention to, but also in effect fuelled. The spread of instability fits perfectly with Russia’s goal of seeking dominance by exploiting the hesitations and contradictions of those it identifies as adversaries.Aleppo will define much of what happens next. A defeat for Syrian opposition forces would further empower Isis in the myth that it is the sole defender of Sunni Muslims – as it terrorises the population under its control. There are many tragic ironies here, not least that western strategy against Isis has officially depended on building up local Syrian opposition ground forces so that they might one day push the jihadi insurgency out of its stronghold in Raqqa. If the very people that were meant to be counted on to do that job as foot soldiers now end up surrounded and crushed in Aleppo, who will the west turn to? Russia has all along claimed it was fighting Isis – but in Aleppo it is helping to destroy those Syrian groups that have in the past proved to be efficient against Isis.

If there were ever any doubts about Russia’s objectives in Syria, events around Aleppo will surely have cleared them.

Vladimir Putin has duplicated in Syria the strategy he applied to Chechnya: full military onslaught on populated areas so rebels are destroyed or forced out. There is a long history of links – going back to the Soviet era – between the Syrian power structure and Russian intelligence. Just as Putin’s regime physically eliminated those in Chechnya who might have been interlocutors for a negotiated peace settlement, Assad has conflated all political opposition with “terrorism”. And as there was never any settlement in Chechnya (only full-on war and destruction until the Kremlin put its own Chechen leader in place), in Putin’s view there can be no settlement in Syria with the opposition.

Cree walkers leave Moose Factory on healing path
'It's been a hard road in trying to get this walk under way,' organizer says

The Meenwach'heewouwan Maskinnou (Healing Path) Walkers left Moose Factory, Ontario, yesterday on a journey by snowshoe that will take them to Chisasibi, Quebec, over the course of a month.
The reason you walk

The first leg of their trek is to Waskaganish, with stops in Eastmain and Wemindji before arriving home in Chisasibi sometime in March.

“It’s been a hard road in trying to get this walk under way,” said organizer Gertie Neacappo.

One of the walkers, Chisasibi resident Christine Chewanish, said the purpose of Meenwach'heewouwan Maskinnou is ton confront the historical traumas her community has faced.

“I had some personal experiences of abuses in my life, where I wanted it to do something about it, so I decided to do a snowshoe walk to bring awareness about the hurting that not only affects my family, but my home community, and Nation,” she said.

“My friend and I would talk about our experiences where we saw similarities in what happened to us in our lives, where we became survivors of trauma that was inflicted by others. And that bothered me for the longest time, but I also knew that our communities were going through many kinds of abuses within and hurting,” she said.

“[It’s] a cycle that needs to be broken.”
