Before the magazine was even sent to press, we got an angry letter from a reader. “I was disgusted by your hypocrisy in a magazine that still uses an unrecyclable glossy format,” he wrote last month in response to a promotion for this week’s Special Report.

Your Sept. 3 articles on successful women were one-sided, naiVe and idealistic, with hardly a reference to the negative impacts to family life and particularly to the unfortunate children (“Having it all,” Cover). I challenge you to do a follow-up article, but this time on the blacker side of the route to the top.

DIED: One of the most popular movie stars of the 1930s and 1940s, Irene Dunne, 88, at her home in Los Angeles. A five-time Academy Award nominee, Dunne became famous for her roles in such zany comedies as My Favorite Wife (1940) and The Awful Truth (1937).

Tourism is down and French-English tensions are up—especially in the nation's capital. And although a spokesman for Ottawa Mayor Jim Durrell's office insisted that the action has nothing to do with anti-French feeling, the city is proposing to drop the name of Hull from what has been promoted for years as the Ottawa-Hull tourist region.

The shouted chorus arose spontaneously among the New Democrats gathered at Robert Rae’s campaign headquarters in a northwest Toronto banquet hall. “We want the premier,” Rae’s elated supporters chanted, as they waited for the first socialist ever to be elected premier in Ontario.

Toronto lawyer Leonard Wise has known Robert Rae for long enough to remember a time when Ontario’s new premier-elect could not get served in fancy Toronto restaurants. Wise, a friend of Rae’s since 1966, recalled an occasion in the early 1970s when Rae, then a financially strapped law student, accompanied him to the posh Ports of Call restaurant on Toronto’s Yonge Street.

TOM FENNELL
Sporting dark double-breasted suits, expensive shoes and owlish glasses, Ontario NDP Leader Robert Rae could easily pass as a young Bay Street executive. But any similarity with Ontario’s business elite ends there. Each time Rae addressed a rally in the provincial election campaign, he sent waves of dread washing through the country’s financial heart by evoking the spirit of Canada’s tradition-steeped socialist movement.

The two Liberal party workers had been calling voters all day, anxiously trying to get supporters out to the polls in David Peterson’s London Centre riding. Finally, 30 minutes before the voting ended last Thursday, they stepped outside the campaign headquarters in a futile attempt to see if they could convince anyone on the street to vote for the Ontario premier.

To many of the natives in the Warriors’ last stronghold, the looping rolls of razor wire that the army quickly put in place around them stood as a sharply focused symbol of their historic battle. Once again, said one of the Warriors’ senior advisers, Loran Thompson, the white man’s government was trying to crush the spirit of Indians, corralling them in a small and strategically indefensible scrap of territory—a makeshift reservation.

In the highest-level contact between the two Koreas since the peninsula was divided in 1945, the prime ministers of North and South met for two days in Seoul to try to defuse tensions and foster eventual unification. South Korea’s Kang Younghoon proposed that the nations restore travel links, reunite families, reduce armed forces to equal levels and increase economic co-operation.

Reanu Kohlee, 38, of Mississauga, Ont., had just stepped off the Nationair DC-8 that carried 122 Canadians from Iraq and Kuwait.

Canada’s unemployment rate is 8.3 per cent, its highest level since it reached the same level in October, 1987. The jobless rate increased for the fifth month in a row in August, jumping half a percentage point from 7.8 per cent in July. Economists said that the unemployment numbers are further evidence that the country is in, or approaching, an economic recession.

When Hollywood turns the camera on itself, the melodrama can be overwhelming—especially when it focuses on a domineering mother and an insecure daughter. As Frances Farmer, an actress committed to an asylum by her mother in Frances (1982), Jessica Lange was so convincing that her performance was painful to watch.

THE EVOLVING IMAGE OF NATURE
Ecological problems are a frightening consequence of the innate belief in mankind’s dominion over nature
[no value]

ROSS LAVER
To the ancient scribes, nature existed so that humans could exploit it. That sense of man as master of the Earth has survived more or less unchallenged into the modern era; it pervades current thinking just as it did long ago. But over the millennia, technological advances have greatly increased the scale—and, inevitably, the destructiveness— of man’s assaults upon nature.

The easiest, and least effective, way to deal with most environmental abuses is to blame them on someone else: the owners of a nearby supermarket, a factory across town, a logging company in the remote rain forests of Brazil. In reality, however, many of the ecological problems facing Canadians are the inevitable byproducts of modern industrial civilization and consumer demand.

Many North American ornithologists are worried about some of the birds they refer to as neotropical migrants—approximately 250 species that breed in Canada and the United States, but spend the winter south of the Tropic of Cancer. Some, like the Kirtland’s warbler, are on Canada’s endangered list; others, including the scarlet tanager and the rose-breasted grosbeak, are familiar summer residents in much of North America.

THE CASE AGAINST: As British Columbia’s biggest forest-products company—with treeharvesting rights to an area twice the size of Prince Edward Island—MacMillan Bloedel comes under frequent attack by environmentalists. During the past four years, protesters blocked plans by the firm to harvest centuriesold timber on Meares Island, off the west coast of Vancouver Island, 200 km northwest of Victoria, and in the Carmanah Valley on Vancouver Island.

THE CASE AGAINST: In the early 1900s, nickel producers working near Sudbury, Ont., used a refining process in which they heated nickel ore on long beds of timber, known as “open-roast yards.” That primitive technique, along with clear-cutting of local timber and the emissions produced by more sophisticated methods in subsequent years, left large expanses of the rolling landscape of the Sudbury region blackened and bereft of vegetation.

In the spring of 1938, a young univer+sity science student named Kenneth Hare attended a lecture at the headquarters of the Royal Meteorological Society in London. The speaker was George Callander, a British physicist who was trying to discover the cause of a gradual warming trend in Northern Europe and North America that meteorologists began observing in the 1880s.

For most of its history, California has symbolized the American dream: a sun-splashed paradise of wide beaches and boundless opportunity. These days, however, the old images of surfboards and convertibles have given way to a far less inviting picture of life in the Golden State.

With his wispy white beard and soft voice, Byron Boville resembles a quiet academic rather than an environmental crusader. But during the past two decades, the Canadian meteorologist, 69 and semi-retired, was a key member of an international group of scientists who spoke out against the use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in refrigerators, air conditioners and dozens of other products.

THE CASE AGAINST: The 1988 annual report for McDonald’s Corp. made little mention of environmental issues. But in the current report, the company devotes 10 of the report’s 48 pages—all of them printed on recycled paper—to a defence of its environmental performance against accusations that its disposable packaging adds to the garbage problem.

In the middle of a scrabbly field between the East German towns of Bitterfeld and Wolfen, water rushes along two shallow canals towards the muddy Mulde River. As the late-afternoon sun glints off the surface of the water, it momentarily reveals a pattern of otherworldly colors: dark reds, fluorescent yellows and sparkling blues.

Part of the region’s storm-sewer system, Little River over the years had become a trash dump for local residents.

Nothing is sacred. There is no hope. It’s as though Shirley Temple was a hooker. Bambi played around. W. C. Fields was a closet evangelist. How else to explain that the Red Hordes have captured Bay Street? The faceless pinkos are in control of the heartland of Canadian capitalism, the richest and most populous province where John David Eaton and Conrad Black did once roam.
