Abstract:

BRITISH COLUMBIA : THE CUTS BEGIN : B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell was elected to cut government. However, how much he would cut came as a surprise to many. The honeymoon period for the new B.C. government came to an abrupt end when it was learned that thousands of civil servants would be cut from the payroll. As part of the massive government cuts, legislation was rushed throught the legislature, forcing teachers back to work and suspending labour contracts that were currently in place. This story examines another work and suspending labour contracts that were currently in place. This story examines another example of a provincial government's hard-hitting economic policies and the reactions to them.

SALT LAKE CITY OLYMPICS : Despite the controversies, the judging scandals, the doping revelations, and the usual politics of an Olympic Games, the Salt Lake City Games have been referred to as the "feel-good games," for Canada especially. Winning a record of medals -- in particular gold medals in hockey for both women and men -- Canadian athletes demonstrated remarkable achievement. In retrospect, these Games are also an excellent vehicle for examining issued such as the relationship between sport, science, and art; the thorny issue of national pride and patriotism; and the inherent values of sport.

CANADA'S FORCES GO TO AFGHANISTAN : This behind-the-scenes look at Canada's land force contingent to Afghanistan creates an awareness of what is involved in preparing 750 soldiers and massive amounts of equipment and supplies for a mission that is one of the most dangerous in decades for Canadian personnel. It also provides an overview of the training that is required for the women and men of Canada's forces and of the military as a career option for young Canadians.

PETER GZOWSKI : A CANADIAN EVERYMAN : Peter Gzowski was many things to many people. In addition to his distinguished career as a journalist and long-time radio host, he represented something very Canadian. People in this country identified with him on a personal level; he spoke to and for them. His contributions and legacy to Canadian culture are unique -- his support of literacy programs was just one important example. Educators know that children learn fundamentally through role modelling and Peter Gzowski was an important Canadian role model.
