Lilley takes on the holy grail of the Canadian media landscape and lays bare the truth about CBC. Reckless reporting at the state broadcaster has ruined lives and cost taxpayers millions upon millions in settlement costs, yet no one has ever been held to account.
Locating localism explores the development of localism as a new mode of statecraft and its implications for the practice of citizenship. Drawing on original research, Jane Wills highlights the importance of having the civic infrastructure and capacity to facilitate the engagement of citizens in local decision making. She looks at the development of community organising, neighbourhood planning and community councils that identify and nurture the energies, talents and creativity of the population to solve their own problems and improve our world. Combining political theory with attention to political practice, the book takes the long view of this new policy development, positioning it in relation to the political geo-history of the British state. In so doing, it highlights the challenges of the state devolving itself and the importance of citizens having the freedom, incentives and institutions needed to act.
From Shakespeare to cop shows, sitcoms to docudramas, for over three decades the CBC has presented viewers with every variety of television drama and has become Canada's closest equivalent to a national theatre. Turn Up the Contrast is the first book to explore the content of Canadian television drama and is both a critical analysis and a survey history of how Canadians have used the medium to tell themselves their own stories. As a part of her research, Mary Jane Miller watched thousands of hours of television, sampling series and viewing in their entirety shorter programs such as movies and mini-series. Asking a variety of questions, she selected a number of programs for detailed analysis, and devotees of The Beachcombers, King of Kensington, Seeing Things, Cariboo Country, Wojeck or A Gift to Last will be pleased to find their favourites among those discussed at length.

The purpose of this study was to better understand the relationship between drug exposed infants and their mothers and how this relationship may be associated with mental health outcomes for the child. Hypotheses predicted that drug exposed infants and their mothers would have more relationship impairment and a higher incidence of relationship disorders than non-drug exposed infants and their mothers. It was also hypothesized that greater relationship impairment would be associated with worse adaptive social behavior and more emotional and behavioral problems for children. A nested case-control design was used, involving secondary analysis of data collected from a larger prospective cohort study. Two measures were used to assess relationship problems: the Parent-Infant Relationship Global Assessment Scale and a Videotape Rating Scale for Relationship Disorders that was developed as part of this study. Both measures were based upon Axis II of the Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood. These measures were used to code videotaped, feeding interactions that occurred of the infant in the home at 3 months of age. When the child was 2 years of age, adaptive social behavior was measured with the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales and emotional and behavioral problems were assessed using the Child Behavior Checklist. Results indicated that, in general, drug detailed comparison of drug exposed and non-drug exposed dyads indicated a higher incidence of specific relationship disorders among drug exposed dyads. The most prominent relationship problems were over-involvement and a mixed relationship disorder that included a gestalt of neglect, anxiety and anger/hostility. Relationship impairment was associated with better adaptive social behavior by the child in domains such as daily living skills and socialization. This finding suggests that children in more dysfunctional relationships may learn to readily comply with their mother's demands to avoid feared consequences and to become more self-sufficient in the face of maternal neglect or insensitivity. Relationships that involved anger and hostility predicted more depression, anxiety and withdrawal for children at age two.
Charlotte Stopes was the first woman in Scotland to get a university qualification. She devoted her life to studying Shakespeare and the promotion of women in public life. Though Charlotte is largely forgotten, her daughter Marie is well known. Green asserts that Marie’s success can only be understood in relation to the achievements of her mother.
For the second edition this popular collection on contemporary ethical issues has been expanded to nine sections. Abortion and euthanasia are now given expanded coverage, and there are new sections as well on assisted reproduction and commodification, and on ethics and the use of violence. The book is primarily composed of pieces by philosophers, chosen both for their intrinsic value and for their accessibility to students. But where relevant the collection also includes legal documents and non-philosophical writings that help to set issues in context for Canadian students. In all, Ethical Issues now includes sixty-six selections, thirty-nine of which are new to this edition. The editor has also provided extensive introductory material and questions for discussion.
