When my review appeared online at 12:01 a.m. Thursday morning, "The Raid" was hovering near 100% at Tomatoes. You need a 60 to be a "fresh" tomato.

My name is Robert L. Peters. I’m a 50s-something designer and principal of Circle, a design consultancy I co-founded in 1976 in Winnipeg, Canada. In addition to practice, I’ve been actively involved in design education, writing, speaking, advocacy, and professional development for most of my career, including leadership roles within the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada (GDC), and the International Council of Graphic Design Associations (Icograda). I was raised and schooled in Germany, Switzerland, and England, and have had the opportunity of living, working, or traveling in more than 60 countries. For the past 30 years I have lived in a low-energy, passive solar house that I designed and built in the woods of Eastern Manitoba (no furnace, but I do have a climbing wall). Robert L. Peters

Kent Monkman is a filmmaker, illustrator, and visual artist who began his exploration of the arts as a painter. The artist is a member of the Fisher River Band in northern Manitoba and is of Swampy Cree and English/Irish descent. He was raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Kent Monkman

Partido X is deeply populist and assembly oriented. In an email one of their founders sent Micah White, the Partido X writes: Dear Micah,We contact you after having read the interview where you state that "The people must become the government".
William Gairdner, freethinker What follows is a revised and updated version of an eight-page essay I published in 2007 in an effort to slow, derail,or halt the headlong embrace by Canada and so many other nations of "gay marriage." I am re-publishing it in response to the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling last week that struck down the Defense of Marriage Act. Readers will judge whether or not the arguments stand, as I believe they do. To those who agree: please circulate as widely as possible. Get into the hands of as many news people as you can,.
