    Election night, 1984, brought to an end the era of Liberal domination in the House of Commons, “nearly sixteen consecutive years” (Stevie Cameron 2005, pg. 15). Brian Mulroney, leader of the progressive conservatives, since 1983, (Cameron, pg. 16) swept through the nation obtaining “50 percent of the popular vote” (Professor Lewis). This historic victory was the culmination of a nation’s exhaustion and discontentment with the then current Liberal government (Cameron, pg. 14). The Mulroney administration entered government the same way it exited historically as a direct result of the plutocratic form of governance prevalent during the Mulroney’s administration. Here was a government which had claimed it would clean up Canadian politics (Cameron, pg. 17) when in fact it concerned itself instead with acquiring money by any means possible. With the resignation of Mulroney, nearly a decade later, Canada had her first female Prime Minister, albeit, four short months later, the people of Canada would soon let forth their ire. Election night, 1993, saw the obliteration of what had become one of the most reviled governments of the twentieth century (Cameron, pg. xi). It was against this backdrop that Stevie Cameron wrote On the Take; Crime, Corruption and Greed in the Mulroney Years.

    The 2015 General Election saw the Conservatives win an overall majority, 12 seats ahead of the Labour party and was said to be the most unpredictable election in a generation. With scores of the population having turned away from traditional styles of voting, a nation of swing voters emerged (Cowley and Kavanagh). Whilst it is true to say that social class and age remain fundamental components, it could also be said that more modern short term factors such as issue voting and the media have…

    "Murphy where have you been going?" Murphy looks up at Finn and just shrugs. He figures he doesn't really owe an answer to anyone and especially not Finn. It's not like he's been doing anything wrong lately, if anything he's been looking for Akna these last few days and he hasn't seen a trace of her. He's stuck to his story that he's still trying to find scrap metal and maybe the occasional scavenge but he hasn't shared anything else. "You leave here everyday at the same time and hardly ever…

    days, is: What makes an author, a creator timeless?

For instance, during Shakespeare’s time, there were other playwrights too, extremely talented but who are not as celebrated and appreciated as he is today. In this essay, my…

    On November 22nd , 2015 , I had attended a play “A servant of Two masters” that played downtown Pittsburgh at the O’Reilly theater, the play was directed by Ted Pappas. He had put together a creative and intriguing play, having actors stay spontaneous and interact with the audience, therefore no parts would be found boring nor dry. All the actors had held up their end of their roles quite well, by fully disguising themselves as that character they were suppose to be during the entire play. …

    On the surface, The Homecoming and Mud are vastly different plays based their overall diverging themes. The Homecoming deals with power dynamics of family members, family values, and female control. Mud, on the other hand, focuses on the power dynamics between three individuals, the fear of loneliness, and escape from monotony. The endings of both plays contain different sensations, as one has a creepy ambiance, while the other leaves a depressing and tragic outlook on life. However, they both…

    A Fading Friend but Not Forgotten When I was a kid, I was a social and outgoing kind of person. In Kindergarten, I met a friend named Jeremy. He was anti-social, awkward, and an all-around goofball. He always made me laugh though and from that point on, we became best friends. I remember as a kid, going to his house and playing Super Nintendo with him, eating with his family, sharing birthdays, and watching Power Rangers. Both of our fathers have disabilities. My father was hit by a drunk…
