: Kasim Hafeez: The Day I Stopped Hating Israel

Escalus Room, MacEwan Hall, University of Calgary
Born into a Pakistani-Muslim family in the UK, Kasim Hafeez was brought up surrounded by Judeophobia and anti-Israel vitriol. As a young man Mr. Hafeez was involved in radical anti-Israel groups and rallied for the destruction of the Jewish state, until one day when he was inspired to change. Despised by those radicals he left behind, and with his own welfare at risk, Mr. Hafeez bravely speaks on Israel’s behalf and against radicalism and describes what transpired the day he stopped hating Israel.

They also want to reach out to others who are suffering in silence, and may feel the only way of ending their pain is ending their lives.

: Kent Hehr hosts Pints and Politics - Lets talk merger

The Blind Monk - 12th Ave
Some of you may have noticed recently that I’ve been discussing the possibility of a merger with like-minded progressive parties in Alberta. Given the current political landscape I think this is the best option forward. What keeps us apart is rugged tribalism. This has lead to infighting between us and has kept our guns pointed squarely at each other instead of focusing our fire on the right-wing in this province. We tend to identify with our brands and not necessarily the values that we share.
