1.1803 Globalization: Economic, Cultural, Social.
This paper will discuss globalization and health care, Canadian culture, agriculture and the auto industry. The first discussion will be that of the possible developments in Canadian culture as it faces globalization. In their discussion of globalization and culture, Chodos, Murphy and Hamovitch (1993) focus on national Canadian identity as a matter of allegiance to the nation-state. They state that as globalization continues to occur, "�competition for people's allegiance has only intensified and the relative strength of nation-states in this competition has been weakened." One would expect to find that popular Canadian culture (television and film particularly), may become less popular. 5.5 pgs. 12 f/c. 5b.

2.1900 Is The Average Manitoba Resident Economically Better Off Than His B.C. Counterpart?
Some Manitoba politicians have argued that the province's average resident is economically better off than his or her British Columbia counterpart. At first glance, this might appear to be unusual in light of the understanding that British Columbia is a much larger province in terms of population and has achieved strong growth during recent years as a result of a robust market for the province's natural resource exports. With this in mind, the purpose of this paper will be to examine this particular claim. An assessment will be made of the merits of this claim using primary data sources, most notably the information that is provided by Statistics Canada. 7 pgs. 13 f/c. 8b.

3.1945 The Ugly Face of Globalization in Canada.
It is the purpose of this paper to undermine the assumption that free market trade, or globalization, does inevitably benefit everyone in Canada. Globalization's social, political, and economic repercussions are often presented in a positive light. Even though Canadians are being told that globalization allows them to pay less for their "Nike's," and offers them an economy "that operates at full employment" (McBride, Shields 28), there are significant negative effects resulting from this process which are, for the most part, swept under the proverbial rug. This economic venture has serious socio-political repercussions in Canada and abroad that require further analysis. 6 pgs. 19 f/c. 3b.

4.2008 Theories of Regional Imbalance: Innis' Staples Theory & Liberal Staples Theory.
This paper discusses that relational approaches to thinking about regional disparities or imbalances include dependency theory, Neo-Marxism, the Hinterlanders' theory, and early Canadian economic history and political sociology, especially the theories of Fowke and Innis. All of these theories stress that regions are defined in relation to one another, discover that regions and regional imbalances are historically produced (they exist as a result of historical economic/social/political interactions) and that they consequently change over time. 6 pgs. 13 f/c. 1b.

5.2009 The Regionalism in the Canadian Economy.
This paper talks about the regionalism of the Canadian economy. In short, there are major differences between the economy in Nova Scotia, Ontario, and, say, Saskatchewan. All provinces have historically different patterns of development, different opportunities for economic success, and different expectations from 'Canada' as a whole. These differences pull at the thread that keeps the country together and prevent any one definition of Canada from ever coming to life. 19 pgs. 32 f/c. 15b.

6.2113 Mass Transit and the needs of the Masses: Public Transportation Service in Downtown EastSide Vancouver.
This paper will consider the relation between the British Columbia public transit service's new "Stop Request" program, and in relation to the transportation needs of Vancouver's Downtown East Side residents. This paper will examine these issues with Beauregard's (1989) modernist/postmodernist perspective; and the usefulness of Young's (YEAR) discussion of the five faces of oppression, as a way to more specifically character the people of East Side Vancouver in relation to their marginal location in the city and in the society, and their relation with issues of "safety" will be discussed. 9 pgs. 17 f/c. 11b.
