About me

Location Canada
Introduction Since the 1950s, I have had a connection with aboriginal people. In fact, for decades I was closely associated with the aboriginal "cause," and worked in native organizations in different parts of Canada. I highly respect many aspects of the indigenous way of life, including the visual arts, music, literature and dance. But when it comes to the politics and the rule of law, I have concerns, which I will share on this blog. In addition, I will be expressing my views on a wide variety of topics, mostly relating to Canada. Why counterpoise? One of the definitions of the verb counterpoise is "to act against with equal power; to balance" (Wiktionary, December 27, 2010). I feel the pendulum has swung too far in one direction, and I want to help bring it back to a more moderate position. My blog has absolutely no connection to the U.S.-based alternative review journal called Counterpoise.
