A helmet is not a suit of armour

Last week a cyclist was struck and killed by a taxi cab at the intersection of Peel and Rene Levesque streets in Montreal. This was the 16th death and the 5th cyclist to lose his life on Montreal streets so far this year.

As is often the case when this happens, the resulting news coverage was succinct (to say the least) and mentioned the death as "resulting from a collision" before stressing that the cyclist was going the wrong way and was not wearing a helmet.

Chomsky vs Nadeau-Dubois

Mon, 08/26/2013 - 15:32 -- Alex

Noam Chomsky will be speaking in Montreal on October 26 at a talk put on by Canadian Dimensions Magazine. He'll be introduced by Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois who made headlines as a result of his dedicated contributions to the Quebec Maple Spring movement when basically everyone I know went to the streets and got teargased at one point or other during the course of several months of sustained protest against student tuition hikes.

In a letter to Concordia student Yuliya Manyakina, asking his opinion about the strike against tuition fee hikes, Chomsky responded “High tuition is not an economic necessity, as is easy to show, but a debt trap is a good technique of indoctrination and control. And resisting this makes good sense.”
