Why vote for Trump?

Since the 2016 elections, the majority of the media and political analysts have focused their attention on the character of Donald Trump. The same is true for most people who still ask themselves, even today, the question of knowing how 70 million voters were able to vote for such a man, in spite of his escapades and his ranting loudly. the Mussolini. However, it i...

Internal enemies of academic freedom

Reading the many writings raised by the Lieutenant-Duval affair at the University of Ottawa, it seems that a good number of university professors, particularly in the English-speaking world but not only, think that it is necessary to curb academic freedom in the name of “respect” for “the Other” and the legitimate fight against inequalities and discrimination. In my...

Cancellation stories

Our brand new culture of cancellation has just manifested itself in two stories that have arisen in academia. Two more, some would say ... On the other hand, they are very different from each other and show, I think, for one that it is sometimes desirable and even necessary to “cancel” a person or a work; for the other, what can be problematic in the fact of giving in too quickly to the temp...

Asbestos, or the discomfort of the past

Asbestos, the unloved, who no longer knows whether she should keep her name or erase her past, like those houses and churches engulfed in the mine, where today a sky-colored lake shines. Who will keep the memory of these workers who dug these deep galleries with the force of their jackhammers and in contempt of their health? The gaping hole is still there, along with the mountains of residue....

A golden humanity

The tragedy that occurred in Quebec during a Halloween night, doubled by a full moon, had the effect of bringing the subject of mental health back into the public sphere. Leaving aside the current debates surrounding, among other things, its funding, I would like to share my experience as a night worker in an intermediate mental health resource. Working mainly with young people (roughly 20 to...

Trump’s failed flight

The United States is poised to regain some semblance of normalcy with the election of Joe Biden as president. At the time of this writing, the Democratic candidate's majority was held in Arizona, Nevada, Pennsylvania and - who would have believed it - he was neck and neck with Donald Trump in Georgia. Trump, the election thief who has flouted democracy and public i...

When the state becomes an illegitimate vigilante

Imagine the following situation. You live in a neighborhood whose quietude is disturbed by a group of people who make excessive noise in the evening, which prevents you from sleeping peacefully. Exasperated by this situation, you decide to take matters into your own hands. You then take a gun and decide to arrest the individuals responsible for the situation befor...

The “collective burn-out” is very real

When healthcare professionals block bridges to demand better working conditions - and when it is suggested that they withdraw their remaining leave - when business owners are forced to disobey the laws - and when they are answered by threat of fines - when studies show that nearly 50% of workers suffer from psychological distress - and they are offered an application...

We tested “La Seine à Vélo” from Chatou to Paris (and it’s not convincing)

As the tramway works in Colombes approach, traffic becomes difficult - Antoine Michelet La Seine à Vélo is a new cycling route from Paris to Le Havre and Deauville. With a tourist and cultural vocation, it is carried by the departments of Eure, Hauts-de-Seine, Seine-Maritime, Val-d'Oise and Yvelines. The website for the course was launched on October 15, but many facilities on the ground are still deficient, such as the first stage between Paris and Chatou (Yvelines). “It's not the impressionists' park here! Lionel Carrara, president of Réseau Vélo 78, is ironic. The noise of the sem...

The disunited states

The US elections once again showed a country deeply divided. Much more than just political, the divide between the two blocks continues to widen, to the point that one wonders what still holds the United States of America together, and how long it can last. The results couldn't be closer. Throughout the week, the country followed the count of the votes, constantly wondering which side would ...

The compass and the sextant

Several months of a presidential speech denying any defeat had announced the color: we knew that the electoral sea would be rough and that American democracy would have to push hard to stay the course. The possibility of the red mirage of November 3, and of the surf with the blue wave that would follow had been noted. Here we are. With good news and bad news. The good news is that the compa...
