Category: Movie NightCo-operatives Film Night: A Silent Transformation (70 min.)

Close

January 23, 2018

This is a film about the transformative power of the co-operative enterprise model. The co-operative movement was built by people who took on the responsibility for their collective well being in the face of government neglect, economic exclusion and cultural discrimination.

As the modern economy increasingly denies vast sectors of the population basic amenities for decent life, this co-operative spirit is as critical as ever. However, over the years the co-op sector has become insular and poorly understood.

A Silent Transformation sets out to explore the innovative self-help efforts of different communities across the province of Ontario. By addressing their needs collectively they are helping to regain the radical vision of co-operation. In these communities are the seeds of economic democracy, global solidarity, and a new popular movement to transform society! Will it grow and flourish?

Category: Registered Adult ProgramsGiller Prize Book Club - Bellevue Square by Michael Redhill

Close

January 25, 2018

This winter we will meet to discuss a few books that were chosen as finalists for the Giller Prize Book Award. Our first selection will be the Giller Prize Winner!

Jean Mason has a doppelganger. She's never seen her, but others swear they have. Apparently, her identical twin hangs out in Kensington Market, where she sometimes buys churros and drags an empty shopping cart down the streets, like she's looking for something to put in it. Jean's a grown woman with a husband and two kids, as well as a thriving bookstore in downtown Toronto, and she doesn't rattle easily—not like she used to. But after two customers insist they've seen her double, Jean decides to investigate.

She begins at the crossroads of Kensington Market: a city park called Bellevue Square. Although she sees no one who looks like her, it only takes a few visits to the park for her to become obsessed with the possibility of encountering her twin in the flesh. With the aid of a small army of locals who hang around in the park, she expands her surveillance, making it known she'll pay for information or sightings. A peculiar collection of drug addicts, scam artists, philanthropists, philosophers and vagrants—the regulars of Bellevue Square—are eager to contribute to Jean's investigation. But when some of them start disappearing, she fears her alleged double has a sinister agenda. Unless Jean stops her, she and everyone she cares about will face a fate much stranger than death.

Register beginning on Tuesday, Janury 2, and pick up your book to get started reading! Enjoy a great discussion and prizes too! We’ll see you there!

Category: Open Adult ProgramsExplore Lifelong Learning - From Lenin to Stalin, the Russian Revolution Evolves presented by Dr. Clay Burlingham

Close

January 30, 2018

In 1921, as Russia lay exhausted, in the wake of the Civil War that had ravaged the country for almost three years, Lenin chose to make peace with the peasants, by allowing them to keep their land, and market their grain. It was this policy and peace, which marked the beginning of Stalin's turn, from the leader he had long admired. This presentation will examine the Civil War, Lenin's peace and Stalin's rise.

Dr. Clay Burlingham has taught for over fifteen years at the University of Saskatchewan, done research in France on numerous occasions, (living in Paris for months at a time), and lived at one point in Italy for four years, traveling from there all over Europe. He is currently one of the most popular professors teaching at the U of S off campus program in Prince Albert. This is his eighth lecture for ELL.

High schoolers Mitsuha and Taki are complete strangers living separate lives. But one night, they suddenly switch places. Mitsuha wakes up in Taki's body, and he in hers. This bizarre occurrence continues to happen randomly, and the two must adjust their lives around each other. Yet, somehow, it works. They build a connection and communicate by leaving notes, messages, and more importantly, an imprint. When a dazzling comet lights up the night's sky, something shifts, and they seek each other out wanting something more-a chance to finally meet. But try as they might, something more daunting than distance prevents them.

Anne and George (Emmanuelle Riva and Jean-Louis Trintignant) are a couple in their 80s who are enjoying their retirement, but that changes when, after an operation following a stroke, Anne is left wheelchair-bound and paralysed. Although she expresses her wish to die, even going so far as to make an attempt at taking her own life, George tries to remind her of the beauty and worth of life itself and the love that they share for each other.

Celebrating the joys of a simple life and all manner of wild things, Robertson breathes vitality and wonder into a love of chickadees, canoeing, and teaching grandchildren to fish. William Robertson leads us through the beauty he finds within the simplicity of an honest life. His poems explore how his roles as father and grandfather allow him to share his love of the natural world, and his passions ignite, especially when he writes about his love of birds. He is modest in his knowledge of nature, humble in knowing that there is too much ever to appreciate fully when armed with our curiosity alone. And so, he sees himself as a sort of decoy, a lure for wild birds, knowing if he succeeds we might discover what he has discovered: “In the creek, birds I’ll probably never name explain their desire.” He writes as if quiet devotion just might release their thoughts. This collection is one that will delight Canadian readers, as in these pages we get to know one who has truly loved the smallest and simplest creatures of Mother Nature, and within them found the extraordinary beauty of this land.

William Robertson is a poet, university English instructor, freelance writer, reviewer, and broadcaster. He has published four collections of poems, the most recent of which is Just Living (2005), and the biography, K.D. Lang: Carrying the Torch (1993). He was on the editorial board of the NeWest Review for ten years. He has also reviewed plays, books, and musical events for the Saskatoon Star Phoenix, to which he has contributed since 1979, and he reviewed plays and concerts for CBC Saskatchewan for fifteen years. He was also a regular panelist on the national CBC’s Talking Books program for all of its eleven-year tenure.

Come and meet Bill and enjoy readings from his latest published work. Books for sale.

As Andy prepares to leave for college, his loyal toys find they have been donated to the Sunnyside Daycare where untamed tots with their sticky little fingers do not play nice. So, it's all for one and one for all as they join Barbie's counterpart Ken, a thespian hedgehog named Mr. Pricklepants, and a pink, strawberry-scented teddy bear called Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear to plan their great escape and ensure that no toy gets left behind.
