The summer issue of the Monitor features two previously published reports on the crisis in Canada's nursing homes, one from the CCPA's national office, Re-imagining Long-term Residential Care in the COVID-19 Crisis, and one from the CCPA-BC, Time to End Profit-making in Seniors' Care.
Here's a sample of what else you'll find in this issue:
- Julian Assange and the U.S. attack on fundamental press freedom — Asad Ismi speaks to analysts and a former Ecuadorian official about Trump's dangerous espionage case against the WikiLeaks founder.
- The case for criminalizing economic abuse — Financial and economic abuse is hard to spot and can continue long after a woman leaves an abusive relationship, but there are policy options available, reports Natasha Bulowski.
- Don't stop the small press! — Fiona Jeffries speaks to Canadian small and radical publishers about how COVID-19 is affecting their work.
- Canada, black swans and the oil glut — War and sanctions offer no long-term solutions to oversupply, let alone climate change, writes John Foster.
- Bigger than Bernie, busted by Biden — Martin Lukacs reviews two recent books on the ideological rift in the Democratic party, and where democratic socialists go after a disappointing primary.
As in our January/February issue, the Monitor also includes the summer issue of Our Schools / Our Selves, which you can download here and which subscription readers will find embedded in the centre of their July/Aug 2020 Monitor.
