Ottawa, Canada 20 October 2015
Last night in a historic and arguably the most important election in modern Canadian history, Stephen Harper and his Conservative party were bounced out of government by the Liberal Party led by Justin Trudeau. In an election campaign which raised eyebrows internationally, a decade of political reaction was decisively rejected. In a desperate bid to cling to power, Harper brought in an Australian political consultant who specializes in racism, to whip up fear and hatred against Muslims. For the first time in a modern Canadian election, a leading political candidate resorted to vicious race baiting. This proved too much for Canadians, especially in Ontario.

Slave Descendant? Don’t Call Me Dave!
By Finian Cunningham
It was also pointed out that David Cameron is the descendant of a British slave owner who once held a lucrative sugar estate on the Caribbean island. In 1833, Sir James Duff, a distant cousin of Cameron on his father’s side, was compensated by the British government for the loss of «slave property» when London finally abolished slavery in Jamaica. The compensation paid to Cameron’s relative would be equivalent to £3 million ($5m) in today’s money.
