There are 62,000 dedicated people, both union and management, who work at Canada Post. The fact that they are fighting with each other again is only partly due to the intransigence of the two sides. The real villains in the dispute are successive governments that refuse to make a tough decision.

Reading some of the popular media reports on Roman Catholicism, such as your cover story “John Paul’s restless Catholics” (Sept. 14), makes me wonder if the outcry of certain Christians does not add up to saying, “If we could get rid of the Pope, then we could do whatever we wanted.”

DIED: Pioneer automaker Henry Ford’s grandson Henry Ford II, 70, who rescued the Ford Motor Co. from collapse in the late 1940s and early 1950s; of complications arising from pneumonia in a Detroit hospital. Increasingly autocratic and ruthless, like his grandfather, Ford liked to impose his will by reminding argumentative underlings that “my name is on the building.”

Barbara Amiel
Last February a Canadian human rights tribunal in Vancouver handed down a decision in the case of four female prison guards who had accused the RCMP of discrimination. The women had been working in RCMP lockups guarding both male and female prisoners, but in January, 1981, the RCMP reactivated its long-standing policy that prisoners must be guarded by persons of the same sex, arguing that the right of male prisoners to privacy in such intimate matters as using the toilet took precedence over the women’s need for absolute equality in employment.

As the deadline for last week’s national postal strike approached, all the signs pointed to a violent confrontation. During the last strike at the post office in June, there were violent clashes on the picket lines when Canada Post brought in temporary workers to replace striking letter carriers.

The man who heads the most militant postal local in Canada is a charismatic teetotaller who works seven days a week and claims no interests outside his union activities. Marcel Perreault, 55, became a union shop steward in 1959, just three years after joining the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW), and became the local’s president in 1968.

Twice a day, five times a week, a letter carrier in the navy blue uniform of the Royal Mail walks up the path to Sue Hudson’s apartment in London’s Camden borough. Like other Britons, Hudson takes for granted prompt mail service to her home—and speedy delivery of the letters she mails.

The people of the Cape Breton town of Florence, N.S., are known as fighters. When 600 men lost their jobs in a 1961 coal mine closure, the townsfolk protested so strongly that the company found new jobs for them at nearby Sydney Mines. Now, 26 years later, the people of Florence (population 3,000) are fighting once again—this time to make sure that they do not lose their local post office.

In the past 17 years New Brunswick Premier Richard Hatfield has defeated four different Liberal leaders in four successive elections. But according to opinion polls, Hatfield’s winning streak may be coming to an abrupt end. As the campaign for New Brunswick’s Oct. 13 election entered the home stretch last week, the latest survey put Liberal challenger Frank McKenna far in the lead.

He was a shambling, enigmatic figure with what one close friend called “a taste for the clandestine.” And when he collapsed last December on the eve of giving congressional testimony on the Irancontra affair, so powerful was his reputation for manipulation and secrecy that some congressmen privately said that he might be feigning an illness.

It was one of the few times since the 1979 revolution which overthrew Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi that the theocratic regime of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini had executed one of its own.

The chairmen of Canada’s banks tend to be so circumspect that even their body language is seldom in the public domain. Yet every once in a while they leave little doubt about where they stand. When I recently asked Richard Thomson, the head of the Toronto-Dominion Bank, about the federal New Democratic Party’s pledge to nationalize one of the Big Five banks, he chose not to prevaricate.

Like crusaders of the Middle Ages, they ultimately failed in their quest and soiled the banner under which they set out to conquer a continent. But between 1783 and 1820 the Nor’Westers braved the wilderness and won. Operating out of their counting houses in Montreal and a hundred or so outposts connected by an inland navy of 2,000 canoeists, they challenged the power and majesty—the very existence—of the Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) and fought the Royal Adventurers to a standstill.

Aired on the first Wednesday of each month at 10 p.m., the 90-minute show featured topless dancers, male strippers and interviews with such personalities as a butcher in central France who, alongside cuts of pork and beef, sells pornographic videotapes.

Along with satirizing paper-shufflers and skewering bureaucratic bunglers, the CBC’s new comedy series, Not My Department! (Fri., 8 p.m.), offers an allegory about those who make Canadian television programs. The show’s feckless hero, Gerald Angstrum (Harry Ditson), is deputy minister for the department of regional incentive targets (DRIT)—and a man suffering an identity crisis.

The scenario and characters are as familiar as the literary form itself. In Julian Semyonov’s TASS is Authorized to Announce..., the hero is a balding spy with a bent for philosophy; the villain is an oily mercenary with Nazi connections; and the plot concerns a superpower’s clandestine efforts to take over Nagonia, an obscure—but geopolitically important—African country.
