THE MIGHTY ARE FALLING
We didn’t anticipate the Liberal collapse. But then we didn’t really know Paul Martin.

KENNETH WHYTE
A MERE SIXTEEN MONTHS AGO, it looked as though the Liberals would rule Canada forever. Conventional wisdom was that we were a one-party state. None of the opposition parties had a hope of breaking the Liberal monopoly, especially with the impressive Paul Martin replacing Jean Chrétien.

After reading “Remembering John Paul II” (“Tribute,” Cover, April 11), it dawned on me that the Pope taught me a wonderful lesson—how to die with dignity and courage. Though I never met him, I came to love him because his faith in God helped me in my journey of faith.

It’s not difficult to whip up anti-Japan sentiment in China or South Korea, as authorities in those countries appear to be doing. Memories of wartime atrocities, routinely overlooked in Japanese histories, are still fresh in the public mind elsewhere.

HOLOCAUST In a sharp rebuke to Swiss bankers, a New York court awarded nearly US$22 million to the heirs of two Austrian businessmen who had entrusted their sugar refinery to a Zurich bank in 1938, only to have it “Aryanized” and resold to a Nazi purchaser within months.

FLU VIRUS Canadian health officials are being credited with averting a major flu outbreak after a B.C. lab spotted a highly contagious strain of Asian flu that was inadvertently sent to about 3,747 labs around the world. The strain, which killed between one and four million people from 1957 to the late-1960s, was somehow sent out as part of a “proficiency test” by the U.S.-based College of American Pathologists.

HOMOLKA Ontario asked all provinces to request special judicial conditions on convicted killer Karla Homolka so authorities can keep track of her once she is released from her 12-year manslaughter sentence in July. The highly unusual measure is normally used only for killers or sex criminals thought to be at high risk of offending again, and may well be challenged by Homolka’s lawyers.

IN RETROSPECT, the sad tale of our foreign policy review perfectly captures the Martin government’s dismal record. It began more than a year ago as an ambitious effort to ensure our policies in foreign affairs, defence, aid and trade buttressed each other.

RECOVERING Brian Mulroney is still in a Montreal hospital more than a month after surgery on March 15 to remove a benign lesion from a lung. The former prime minister, 66, is being treated for acute pancreatitis, an inflammation resulting from the operation, and while he is now doing well, doctors said full recovery will take a while yet.

BENOIT AUBIN
IN WICKEDLY IRONIC FASHION, the chickens of Ottawa’s unity program came home to roost last week, producing a rare moment of perfect national togetherness. Even lifelong Quebec separatists paused for a brief moment to appreciate this conjuncture of quasi-cosmic rarity, when the whole of Canada seemed to be of one mind, and to speak with one—outraged—voice.

TIMOTHY TREADWELL is a 46-year-old blond American with a Prince Valiant haircut who looks like a cross between Jeff Daniels in Dumb and Dumber and Owen Wilson in Starsky & Hutch. And he’s starring in the story of his own death. In October 2003, Treadwell, along with his girlfriend, Amie Huguenard, was killed and eaten by a grizzly at their tent—after 13 summers of trying to get up close and personal with bears in the wilds of Alaska.

MORE THAN 50 minutes after Jimmy Muindi sweeps smoothly to victory in the Rotterdam Marathon, in an impressive time of 2:07:50, the cold and rain of an April day by the North Sea have scattered his welcoming party. The city’s smiling mayor, Burgemeester Ivo Opstelten, last seen presenting flowers to the top three finishers—Kenyans to a man—is nowhere to be seen.

We last saw Daniel Day-Lewis as Bill the Butcher, the bloodthirsty tyrant in Gangs of New York. Three years later the influence of that role can be seen on the cutting edge of Asian martial arts. Kung Fu Hustle, from Hong Kong filmmaker/star Stephen Chow, features a lavishly choreographed street fight involving blade-swinging warriors in black top hats, who could be comic Chinese versions of Bill’s cutthroat Yankees.

Canadian journalist Nelofer Pazira escaped Afghanistan with her family in 1989, when she was 15 (they were the only Afghans in New Brunswick). She tried unsuccessfully to go back twice in the next 11 years: once to find her close friend, Dyana, with whom she’d been corresponding; and later to shoot the acclaimed film Kandahar, in which she stars, and which is based on her quest to reconnect with Dyana (in the movie, the heroine looks for her sister).

PAUL WELLS
LUNCHTIME ON A WEEKDAY in Montreal. I stood at the corner of Peel and Ste. Catherine, wondering where to eat. Within two minutes I ran into a prominent Conservative and a prominent Liberal. Both were dressed like a million bucks—it’s Montreal, after all.
