    Is two-tier health care the future?

    2020
    Summary: "Canadians are deeply worried about wait times for health and this book explores whether or not two-tier health care is a solution. Entrepreneurial doctors and private clinics are bringing Charter challenges to existing laws restrictive of a two-tier system. They argue (wrongly in our view) that Canada is an outlier amongst developed countries in limiting options to jump the queue. In this book, leading researchers explore the public and private mix in Canada and within countries such as Australia, Germany, France and Ireland. We explain the history and complexity of interactions between public and private funding of health care. We also explain the many regulations and policies found in different countries used to both inhibit and sometimes to encourage two-tier care (for example, tax breaks). If a Canadian court strikes down laws restrictive of two-tier, Canadian governments can (i) permit and even encourage two-tier care to grow; (ii) pass new regulations that allow a small measure of two-tier care; or (iii) take positive steps to eliminate wait times in Canadian health care, and thereby reduce demand for two-tier care. We argue for option three as the best means to ensure Canadian principles of equity in access, ensure timely care, and fend off constitutional challenges. This work is critical not only for court challenges but also for Canadian governments who need the best evidence possible about different approaches to regulating two-tier care if they are forced by a court to revisit existing laws as a result of a successful Charter challenge."

  2. Punished for aging : vulnerability, rights, and access to justice in Canadian penitentiaries

    • Ebog

    Punished for aging : vulnerability, rights, and access to justice in Canadian penitentiaries

    2019
    Summary: "Built around the experiences of older prisoners, Punished for Aging looks at the challenges individuals face in Canadian penitentiaries and their struggles for justice. Through firsthand accounts and quantitative data drawn from extensive interviews, this book brings forward the experiences of federally incarcerated people living their "golden years" behind bars. These experiences show the limited ability of the system to respond to heightened needs, while also raising questions about how international and national laws and policies are applied, and why they fail to ensure the safety and well-being of incarcerated individuals. In so doing, Adelina Iftene explores the shortcomings of institutional processes, prison-monitoring mechanisms, and legal remedies available in courts and tribunals, which leave prisoners vulnerable to rights abuses. Some of the problems addressed in this book are not new; however, the demographic shift and the increase in people dying in prisons after long, inadequately addressed illnesses, with few release options, adds a renewed sense of urgency to reform. Working from the interview data, contextualized by participants' lived experiences, and building on previous work, Iftene seeks solutions for such reform, which would constitute a significant step forward not only in protecting older prisoners, but in consolidating the status of incarcerated individuals as holders of substantive rights."

  3. Implicating the system : judicial discourses in the sentencing of Indigenous women

    • Ebog

    Implicating the system : judicial discourses in the sentencing of Indigenous women

    2019
    Summary: "Indigenous women continue to be overrepresented in Canadian prisons; research demonstrates how their overincarceration and often extensive experiences of victimization are interconnected with and through ongoing processes of colonization. "Implicating the System: Judicial Discourses in the Sentencing of Indigenous Women" explores how judges navigate these issues in sentencing by examining related discourses in selected judgments from a review of 175 decisions. The feminist theory of the victimization-criminalization continuum informs Elspeth Kaiser-Derrick's work. She examines its overlap with the Gladue analysis, foregrounding decisions that effectively integrate gendered understandings of Indigenous women's victimization histories, and problematizing those with less contextualized reasoning. Ultimately, she contends that judicial use of the victimization-criminalization continuum deepens the Gladue analysis and augments its capacity to further its objectives of alternatives to incarceration. Kaiser-Derrick discusses how judicial discourses about victimization intersect with those about rehabilitation and treatment, and suggests associated problems, particularly where prison is characterized as a place of healing. Finally, she shows how recent incursions into judicial discretion, through legislative changes to the conditional sentencing regime that restrict the availability of alternatives to incarceration, are particularly concerning for Indigenous women in the system."

  5. Bad law : rethinking justice for a postcolonial Canada

    • Ebog

    Bad law : rethinking justice for a postcolonial Canada

    2019
    First edition
    Summary: Building on his previous two books, "Bad Medicine" and "Bad Judgment," John Reilly acquaints the reader with the ironies and futilities of an approach to justice so adversarial and dysfunctional that it often increases crime rather than reducing it. He examines the radically different indigenous approach to wrongdoing, which is restorative rather than retributive, founded on the premise that people are basically good and wrongdoing is the aberration, not that humans are essentially evil and have to be deterred by horrendous punishments

  7. Outward and upward mobilities : international students in Canada, their families, and structuring institutions

    • Ebog

    Outward and upward mobilities : international students in Canada, their families, and structuring institutions

    2019
    Summary: "People move out to move up. Like other migrant groups, student mobility is a form of social mobility, and one that requires access from a host state. But there are multiple institutions with which students interact and that influence the processes of social mobility. Outward and Upward Mobilities investigates the connection between student and institution. The collection features work by key scholars in the field and considers international students from across Canada regardless of legal status. Exploring how international students and their families fare in local ethnic communities, educational and professional institutions, and the labour market, this volume demonstrates the need to ask more critical questions about the short- and long-term effects of temporary legal status, how student and family experiences differ by educational level and region of settlement, the barriers to and facilitators of adaptation and integration, and ultimately, to what extent individual, familial, institutional, and state goals function in harmony and in discord."

  8. Shaping the metropolis : institutions and urbanization in the United States and Canada

    • Ebog

    Shaping the metropolis : institutions and urbanization in the United States and Canada

    2019
    Summary: "Rising income inequality and concentrated poverty threaten the social sustainability of North American cities. Suburban growth endangers sensitive ecosystems, water supplies, and food security. Existing urban infrastructure is crumbling while governments struggle to pay for new and expanded services. Can our inherited urban governance institutions and policies effectively respond to these problems? In Shaping the Metropolis Zack Taylor compares the historical development of American and Canadian urban governance, both at the national level and through specific metropolitan case studies. Examining Minneapolis-St Paul and Portland, Oregon, in the United States, and Toronto and Vancouver in Canada, Taylor shows how differences in the structure of governing institutions in American states and Canadian provinces cumulatively produced different forms of urban governance. Arguing that since the nineteenth century American state governments have responded less effectively to rapid urban growth than Canadian provinces, he shows that the concentration of authority in Canadian provincial governments enabled the rapid adoption of coherent urban policies after the Second World War, while dispersed authority in American state governments fostered indecision and catered to parochial interests. Most contemporary policy problems, and their solutions, are to be found in cities. Shaping the Metropolis shows that urban governance encompasses far more than local government, and that states and provinces have always played a central role in responding to urban policy challenges and will continue to do so in the future."

  9. Tear gas epiphanies : protest, culture, museums

    • Ebog

    Tear gas epiphanies : protest, culture, museums

    2019
    Summary: "Museums are frequently sites of struggle and negotiation. They are key cultural institutions that occupy an oftentimes uncomfortable place at the crossroads of the arts, culture, various levels of government, corporate ventures, and the public. Because of this, museums are be targeted by political action but can also provide support for contentious politics. Though protests at museums are understudied, they are far from anomalous. Tear Gas Epiphanies traces the as-yet-untold story of political action at museums in Canada from the early twentieth century to the present. The book looks at how museums do or do not archive protest ephemera, examining a range of responses to actions taking place at their thresholds, from active encouragement to belligerent dismissal. Drawing together extensive primary-source research and analysis, Robertson questions widespread perceptions of museums, strongly arguing for a reconsideration of their role in contemporary society that takes into account political conflict and protest as key ingredients in museum life. The sheer number of protest actions Robertson uncovers is compelling. Ambitious and wide-ranging, Tear Gas Epiphanies provides a thorough and conscientious survey of key points of intersection between museums and protest--a valuable resource for university students and scholars, as well as arts professionals working at and with museums."

  10. A Canadian healthcare innovation agenda : policy, governance, and strategy

    • Ebog

    A Canadian healthcare innovation agenda : policy, governance, and strategy

    2018
    Summary: "This collection features original chapters from academics and healthcare leaders that address a range of policy issues: the meaning of healthcare innovation; how a national healthcare agency and investment fund could be governed; the nature of implications of big data and evidence; how to add value through Canadian supply-chain management; how to overcome regulatory barriers to innovation; policy innovation for indigenous, military and elderly populations; the role of the medical professions in promoting innovation, education and the development of healthcare innovators. While the Canadian healthcare system is so fragmented that many analysts argue that a system-wide strategy for healthcare innovation is a distant ideal, this book presents a contrary view by showing that Canadians do indeed have the building blocks for innovation."
