19:00 Equity at Wednesday, September 28, 2016 at 7:00 »Tonight at City Cinema
Only 4 days left to see this film.

Rated: 14 Accompaniment (Coarse Language)
Runs: 100 minutes
Director: Meera Menon
Country: US
Starring: Anna Gunn, James Purefoy, Craig Bierko, Alysia Reiner

“Equity is a smart thriller set in the corporate world that disguises its modest budget with an intelligent script and good set of hooks. Promoting itself as ‘the first female-driven Wall Street movie,’ the film’s plot revolves mostly around female characters, while it’s also been directed, written and produced by women. And yet, perhaps the most winning thing about Equity it that it’s not some kind of worthy empowerment drama about sisters doing if for themselves. Instead, although sexism in the workplace is definitely addressed, it plays more like an old-school noir with the sexes casually reversed, featuring a deeply flawed protagonist (Breaking Bad’s Anna Gunn), a seductive but duplicitous homme fatale (James Purefoy) and others navigating their way through a miasma of an ethically shady urban world.” - Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter. “A smart, entertaining drama... Anna Gunn plays the high-flying investment banker whose upcoming IPO for a tech company will either make or break her, and Thomas and Reiner are Gunn’s chief associate and a US Attorney on the trail of insider traders. It’s an altogether satisfying example of the high-finance scheming genre... it delivers the dramatic goods.” - Mitch Salem, Showbuzz Daily

00:57 [AH] Could Tecumseh's confederacy have succeeded? »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
Two weekends ago, I enjoyed an afternoon at Toronto's Art Gallery of Ontario. One of the first works I saw on this visit were these two terracotta busts by one Hamilton Plantagenet MacCarthy. The one in the back is of Sir Isaac Brock, an acting Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada who died in an early battle of the War of 1812. The one in the front is of Tecumseh, the Shawnee leader who tried to create an Indian confederacy to Upper Canada's west and fell in battle a year after Brock.

Tecumseh and Brock, by MacCarthy #toronto #artgalleryofontario #ago #terracotta #tecumseh #isaacbrock #hamiltonplantagenetmaccarthy


The project to which Brock devoted his life, that of an Upper Canada that was part of the British Empire, succeeded. Barring sustained British defeats on the front lines, I would argue that was a more likely outcome than not. Tecumseh's confederacy, in contrast, did not survive his death, and would arguably have been hard-pressed to survive, not least because of American pressure on territories that had been ceded to the US back in 1783.

A commenter on Facebook linked to his analysis of a scenario where the Confederacy survived. The description of British demands, found here, describes something stiff.

Within a week, Lord Castlereagh sent precise instructions which confirmed the worst fears of the Americans. The Indian boundary line was to follow the line of the Treaty of Greenville and beyond it neither nation was to acquire land. The United States was asked, in short, to set apart for the Indians in perpetuity an area which comprised the present States of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Illinois, four-fifths of Indiana, and a third of Ohio. But, remonstrated Gallatin, this area included States and Territories settled by more than a hundred thousand American citizens. What was to be done with them? 'They must look after themselves,' was the blunt answer.

In comparison with this astounding proposal, Lord Castlereagh's further suggestion of a 'rectification' of the frontier by the cession of Fort Niagara and Sackett's Harbor and by the exclusion of the Americans from the Lakes, seemed of little importance. The purpose of His Majesty's Government, the commissioners hastened to add, was not aggrandizement but the protection of the North American provinces. In view of the avowed aim of the United States to conquer Canada, the control of the Lakes must rest with Great Britain. Indeed, taking the weakness of Canada into account, His Majesty's Government might have reasonably demanded the cession of the lands adjacent to the Lakes; and should these moderate terms not be accepted, His Majesty's Government would feel itself at liberty to enlarge its demands, if the war continued to favor British arms. The American commissioners asked if these proposals relating to the control of the Lakes were also a sine qua non. 'We have given you one sine qua non already,' was the reply, 'and we should suppose one sine qua non at a time was enough.'


The Treaty of Greenville, originally signed in 1795, set generous boundaries for the confederacy.



I have serious doubts as to whether this would be viable. The weakness of the First Nations alone, particularly demographically, the situation of the American citizens already resident in this autonomous zone--a territory that, I believe, would still be part of the United States--would seem certain to keep everyone entangled most uncomfortably. The result could easily be a second war on the Great Lakes at some point. Tecumseh's confederacy, even if successful, might only postpone the marginalization of indigenous peoples in central North America for another generation. His initiative came too late.

Was there any way that Tecumseh's project could have survived? Perhaps we could have had Michigan become a Native American polity under Britain? Tecumseh could plausibly have survived; Britain could plausibly have done better? Or were the odds too great for any long-duration survival?

23:55 [URBAN NOTE] "This city's skyline is a doppelganger for Toronto" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
blogTO's Derek Flack reports on how Toronto's skyline resembles Tehran's.

The most recognizable feature of Toronto's skyline isn't a matter of debate. The CN Tower is both our most famous building and a navigational beacon that even longtime residents rely on to get their bearings on occasion. Take away this soaring landmark, and the city no longer looks like Toronto at all.

That's why it's so strange to look at images of certain Tehran's skyline. If you squint your eyes, it can seem startlingly like Toronto thanks to the cranes that seem to continually cover the sky and the presence of the Milad Tower, a slightly shorter communications beacon that shares a number of traits with our local version.

Kuala Lumpur also has a structure that resembles the CN Tower, but it shares the skyline with the brighter Petronas Twin Towers, which diminishes the centrality of the the KL Tower. Other major observation/communications towers in cities like Seattle don't really resemble the CN Tower in the first place.

Tehran's tower is just over 100 metres shorter than our central landmark, but the resemblance is heightened by the disc on its top section, which is located around the same area where the Skypod is on the CN Tower. As a distant silhouette, the two structures are eerily similar (even if that can't be said when they're examined up close).

23:40 [URBAN NOTE] "Monarchy over multiculturalism, says Leamington mayor" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
CBC reports on one southwest Ontario mayor determined to oppose monarchy to multiculturalism. The irony of the photo that CBC used to illustrate the monarchs--William and Kate participating in a First Nations drum ceremony--is likely beyond him.

As the royal tour makes its way through Canada, one southwest Ontario mayor is calling on Canada to scrap its current multicultural policies and focus on ties to the monarchy.

[. . .]

Paterson stood by his Facebook comments Monday, telling CBC he welcomes new Canadians from around the world. But he expects them to conform to Canadian culture.

"If you're going to come to Canada and swear allegiance to Canada, which includes an allegiance to the monarchy, then be Canadian, that's all I'm saying," Paterson said. "Don't force us to change our ways. Come to Canada and be Canadian."

Paterson said he's not criticizing immigrants, but federal programs promoting multiculturalism. To Paterson, those come at the expense of traditions like the British monarchy.
23:32 [URBAN NOTE] "Province considering 600 requests to remove Greenbelt land" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
The Toronto Star's Alex Ballingall reports on pressures to undermine the greenbelt of the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.

The province is considering more than 600 applications to remove land from the official Greenbelt, prompting worries from environmentalists that parts of the protected area might be opened for development.

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Municipal Affairs said in an emailed statement that any changes to the Greenbelt would be “minor.” The government has received these “site-specific requests” over the past 10 years, and is now assessing them as part of an ongoing review of the Greenbelt Plan, which was created in 2005.

Tim Gray, executive director of Environmental Defence, said he’s been told several times that the province has no intention of compromising the 1.8-million acre Greenbelt area, which was established to protect wild areas and farmland against the encroachment of suburban sprawl. Even so, he said, removing any land from the Greenbelt could legitimize calls for development in the protected corridor around the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.

“The whole point of creating the Greenbelt was not allowing incursions into it,” Gray said.

“Every inch you give, you then are asked to give a mile. That’s the risk.”
23:23 [URBAN NOTE] "Amazon Prime to offer same-day delivery in Toronto, Vancouver" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
CBC News' Pete Evans reports on how Amazon is trying to make headway in the Canadian market.

Amazon says it will soon offer same-day delivery to its Prime customers in Toronto and Vancouver who order something online worth more than $25.

The service has been available in the U.S., but the online retailer is rolling it out in Canada for the first time ahead of the busy holiday shopping season.

"Prime was developed to make shopping on Amazon fast and convenient, and Prime members in Canada can now enjoy fast, unlimited, free Prime delivery seven days a week," spokesman Alexandre Gagnon said.

Any orders on eligible goods in those markets placed in the morning wil be delivered by 9 p.m. that day, the company says.
23:10 [URBAN NOTE] "Vancouver's housing-bubble risk unmatched on the planet, says Swiss bank" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
CBC carries Dan Healing's Canadian Press article describing a recent study that came to a not-unexpected conclusion.

The rise in Vancouver's average housing prices compared with the growth in average wages, rents and other economic factors make it the most likely to experience a sudden downward correction compared with 17 other large cities around the globe, according to the UBS Global Real Estate Bubble Index released this week.

The report also warned that investors are less likely to see growth in property value in high "bubble risk" cities.

Jon Woloshin, strategist at UBS Wealth Management Americas, said the report doesn't mean Vancouver is likely to experience a home price correction like the U.S. housing crisis that contributed to the 2008-09 recession. Rather, it's meant as a cautionary signal for potential real estate investors.

"Based on the different criteria that were factored into all these major markets, as we sit here today, Vancouver on a risk-reward basis scored the lowest, which is why it's at the top," he explained.</blockquote
23:06 [URBAN NOTE] "Will Crosstown LRT builders keep their local jobs pledge?" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
The Toronto Star's Ben Spurr reports on a good idea that might not be realized.

An agreement to hire locally for constructing the Eglinton Crosstown was billed as a ground-breaking move that would leverage major transit projects to create jobs for disadvantaged communities. But more than a year after the consortium building the LRT agreed to put forward a plan, labour and community organizations say it has yet to deliver.

In 2014, the Toronto Community Benefits Network (TCBN) and Metrolinx, the provincial transit agency, signed a widely lauded framework outlining principles for “community benefit agreements” for Toronto’s light rail projects.

The agreement said companies selected to deliver the transit lines would be asked to commit to offering employment and apprenticeship opportunities to “historically disadvantaged” and “equity-seeking groups,” to ensure that some of the billions being invested in the projects would stay in local communities.

A construction consortium called Crosslinx won the bid for the second phase of the $5.3-billion Eglinton Crosstown in July 2015. But according to the TCBN, the company has yet to release any clear targets for so-called “diversity hires.”

Crosslinx declined to answer questions about its community benefit plan and instead referred the Star to Metrolinx, which is in charge of the light rail project. Agency spokesperson Anne Marie Aikins said Crosslinx has submitted community benefits and apprenticeship proposals, and Metrolinx and Infrastructure Ontario are in the “final stages” of reviewing them. She said the provincial agencies “expect to have an announcement very soon” and the agency is committed to the community benefits project.

12:52 Where are you, Sonnet No. 99? »ruk.ca from peter rukavina

I shipped Sonnet № 99 off to Oxford last Tuesday by UPS, with a promise that it would arrive there today.

It did not.

Here’s the latest UPS tracking information for the parcel:

UPS Tracking Information

The UPS call centre tells me that my parcel was “subject to a security scan which was beyond our control” by way of explaining the delay. It all goes well this won’t prevent the package from being at Oxford by the September 30 deadline – thank goodness I shipped it as early as I did – but I’ve little faith in UPS as I see the back and forth the parcel went through.

Charlottetown to Dieppe to Lachine to start things off make sense to me. But why did the parcel go across the border to Plattsburgh, 100 km away, only to come back to Lachine two days later, and then on to Mirabel, and then back to the USA to Louisville (UPS’s main hub) and then back up to Philadelphia (from where, I presume, it’s headed overseas).

Perhaps I’m too stuck on an old world “the fastest route from point A to point B” way of thinking about global logistics, but this makes no sense to me, and I can’t imagine why it’s efficient to send a parcel back and forth across the U.S. border twice when sending it from PEI to the United Kingdom.
