This Week


Politics of genocide

Widespread slaughter, expulsion, kidnapping and rape of Christians, Yezidis and other ethnic and religious minorities in territory controlled by the Islamic State may well constitute a genocide, but the Canadian government will not join a growing international movement and formally call it a genocide before there is a third-party investigation.


Think Indigenous

The third annual Think Indigenous Education conference was held March 15 - 18, beginning with the first annual Think Indigenous Youth Conference at Nutana Collegiate in Saskatoon and continuing with workshops, speakers, tours, panels and a banquet.


Mercy masterpiece

If Pope Francis wanted a single image to illustrate the special Year of Mercy that is the current focus of his ministry and, indeed, the theme at the heart of his pontificate, he could do no better than choosing an under-appreciated masterpiece by the thrilling Italian artist known as Caravaggio.
