In Defence of Principles: NGOs and Human Rights in Canada (Law and Society Series)
In Defence of Principles: NGOs and Human Rights in Canada (Law and Society Series)
Since 9/11 and the onset of the "war on terror," the principal challenge confronting liberal democracies has been to balance freedom with security and individual with collective rights. In Defence of Principles sheds new light on the evolution of human rights norms in liberal democracies by charting the activism of four NGOs ­- the Canadian Council of Churches, Canadian Jewish Congress, Canadian Civil Liberties Association, and Amnesty International Canada - on issues of refugee rights, hate speech, and the death penalty. This activism often includes the use of difficult, often controversial legal cases on as platforms to assert human rights principles and shape judicial policy-making. Although human rights principles are often spoken of in absolute terms, this book reminds us that they are never certain - even in countries that have a vibrant civil society, a long tradition of rule of law, and a judiciary that possesses the constitutional authority to engage in judicial review. The struggles of these NGOs reveal not only the fragility but also the resilience of ideas about rights in liberal democracies.

ICE CUBE of N.W.A in Montreal, Canada.
ICE CUBE of N.W.A in Montreal, Canada.
O'Shea Jackson (born June 15, 1969 in Los Angeles, California), is a rapper, actor and film director, who has legally adopted his stage name, Ice Cube. Regarded as one of the greatest hip hop artists,[1][2] he began his career as a founding member of the famously controversial rap group N.W.A., and later launched a successful solo career in music and cinema. From the mid-90s onwards, Cube focused on acting, and his musical output has slowed down considerably. He remains one of the most visible West Coast rappers, having helped originate gangsta rap. He is particularly well-known for his incendiary raps on political and racial topics (such as the treatment of blacks in the United States). He is also one of the richest people in the hip hop industry with an estimated net worth of $145 million.

N.W.A. era

He and Dre eventually made a mixtape called My Posse, which was released in 1987, with Cube rapping and Dre producing[3]. After a brief stint in a group called HBO, Cube showed his friend, a then-drug dealer named Eazy-E, a song Cube had written called "Boyz-N-The-Hood." Cube wanted Eazy to perform the song; initially, Eazy refused, as he had no intent to become a rapper. Eventually, he caved and recorded the song, which wound up on the album N.W.A. and the Posse--the first release from N.W.A..

By this point Cube was a full-time member of the group along with The D.O.C. and (to a lesser extent) MC Ren, he wrote Dr. Dre and Eazy-E's rhymes for the group's landmark album, Straight Outta Compton, released in 1989. However, as 1990 approached, Cube found himself at odds with the group's manager, Jerry Heller, after Heller responded to the group's financial questions by drafting up a new arrangement. As he explains in the book Ice Cube: Attitude (McIver, 2002):

Heller gave me this contract, and I said I wanted a lawyer to see it. He almost fell out of his chair. I guess he figure, how this young muthafucka turn down all this money? [$75,000] Everybody else signed. I told them I wanted to make sure my shit was right first.

Having written approximately half of both Straight Outta Compton, and Eazy-E's solo album, Eazy-Duz-It, Cube was advised of the amounts he was truly owed by Heller, and proceeded to take legal action, soon after leaving the group. In response, the remaining group members attacked him on the EP 100 Miles and Runnin', and their next and final full-length album, Efil4zaggin.

july 1 09 A flower for your birthday Canada!
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Canada Day (French: Fete du Canada), formerly Dominion Day (French: Le Jour de la Confederation), is Canada's national day, a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of the 1 July 1867 enactment of the British North America Act, which united Canada as a single country, which was in turn composed of four provinces. Canada Day observances take place throughout Canada as well as internationally. Frequently referred to as "Canada's birthday", particularly in the popular press,[1][2][3] the occasion marks the joining of the British North American colonies of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Province of Canada into a federation of four provinces (the Province of Canada being divided, in the process, into Ontario and Quebec) on 1 July 1867. Although Canada is regarded as having become a kingdom in its own right on that date,[4] the British Parliament kept limited rights of political control over the new country that were shed by stages over the years until the last vestiges were surrendered in 1982 when the Constitution Act patriated the Canadian constitution. Under the federal Holidays Act, Canada Day is observed on 1 July unless that date falls on a Sunday, in which case 2 July is the statutory holiday, although celebratory events generally take place on 1 July even though it is not the legal holiday.[29] If it falls on a Saturday, the following Monday is generally also a day off for those businesses ordinarily closed on Saturdays.

Women's Rights in Native North America: Legal Mobilization in the US and Canada (Law and Society (New York, N.Y.).)
Aks's analysis of "marrying out" cases--when indigenous women marry outside of their tribe--in the United States and Canada examines how indigenous women mobilize the law. By marrying out of their tribes/bands, these women either lose their "Indian" status or are unable to pass such status on to their children, and they have few legal tools that encompass their unique identities. The book concludes that the impact of indigenous women's legal mobilization should be assessed in terms of the potential for future democratic participation. Legal mobilization helps tame the effects of intersectional power only if it provides indigenous women new opportunities to redefine rights.
