Canadian soldiers, mainly from the Royal 22nd Regiment (the fabled Van Doos), with support from several other units, are writing a new rule book for peacekeeping.

Few subjects are as gripping and relevant today as that of the world which awaits us after we die.

As guest speaker at an awards dinner of the two-year-old Canadian Society of Magazine Editors in Toronto last week, native leader Ovide Mercredi announced that he had something important to tell his audience—but only off the record.

FRED BRUNING
Did USA Today play rough with Arthur Ashe? Inquiries by the colorful national daily prompted Ashe to acknowledge that he has AIDS—and to angrily question the priorities of the news business. USA Today says, Sorry, a story is a story, no exceptions.

Anthony Wilson-Smith
In the 26 years since Robert Bourassa entered Quebec politics, his public commitment to federalism has waxed and waned. As a Liberal backbencher in 1967, Bourassa seriously considered joining a pro-sovereignty group led by René Lévesque.

As satellite dishes brought a deluge of English-language TV programs to remote Eastern Arctic communities on Baffin Island in the early 1980s, Inuit leaders worried that their young would lose their traditional language, Inuktitut. School officials responded by spending $200,000 a year on new native-language textbooks.

Freed but not really free—that summed up David Milgaard’s first full week of liberty after almost 23 years in prison. Venturing outside his mother’s Winnipeg home, Milgaard found himself mobbed by wellwishers, an experience that he subsequently described as “claustrophobic.”

The men of November Company’s Seven Platoon, from Baden, Germany, patrolled through Croatian countryside that was spellbindingly beautiful. The Canadians’ route took them along a single-lane rural road 100 km east of Zagreb, which they call “the Line” because it marks the Croatian army’s forward position of defence against the Serb-led Yugoslav People’s Army (JNA).

A single incident proved to be the spark that ignited the First World War. On June 28, 1914, in the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo, a 19-year-old nationalist named Gavrilo Princip fired two shots at the car of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, killing the heir to the Austrian throne and his wife, Duchess Sophie.

The bodies have been cleared away, but bloodstains still mark walls and doorways, hidden at night by the dark that envelops the deserted buildings. As evening falls, a few terrified families huddle in basements. Using candlelight, they eat sparingly from dwindling supplies of canned food and listen anxiously to the rat-a-tat-tat of machine-gun fire and the explosion of mortars outside.

Ever since personal computers went onto the market in the late 1970s, manufacturers have sought to make them smaller, more powerful and easier to use. But even the so-called laptop computers, introduced in the late 1980s, have limitations: to enter data, users have to operate a keyboard or a so-called mouse pointing device.

Ever since Nova Scotia laborers struck out for Toronto in Goin’ Down the Road (1970), characters in Canadian movies have been leaving home, looking for the big time and almost invariably meeting with disappointment. Now, South of Wawa offers a perverse variation on the theme of thwarted dreams: two waitresses in a small-town Ontario doughnut shop get all excited about going on a double Scene from The Fool: dazzlingly literate drama about poverty, wealth and power date to a Dan Hill concert in Toronto, but never even make it to the highway.
