  Electroacoustic Music in Canada: 1950-1984
Although our concern is Canada's part in all of this, we had better take a brief look at tie global state of the art just before Canada got her feet wet.
This seems to have been the first composition employing prepared tape to be performed in a concert hall in Canada (the first tape music heard in Canada seems to have been a broadcast of early German works on CBC radio in the summer of 1954).
Canada's electroacoustic music composers - in particular, Buxton, Keane, Truax, and more recently Jean Piché - are well represented in broadcasts and concert series around the world and they figure prominently in such important international festivals as those in Bourges, Brussels, Tokyo, Paris, and the Warsaw Autumn and Gaudeamus Festivals.

 The History of Racism in Canada
A background to the topic of racism in Canada is offered first where concepts such as the other, whiteness, and white privilege are explored.
This, of course, has already been done in eastern Canada and on the Prairies, but the apartheid policy adopted in B.C. was of a particularly cruel and degrading kind.
In that same year, Canada ratified the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, which had been adopted by the UN in 1965 and signed by Canada in 1966.

 Colour-Coded: A Legal History of Racism in Canada, 1900-1950. by Marry Cahill   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
The appearance of Re Eskimos among a series of case studies purporting to illustrate the legal history of racism in Canada speaks to the author's determination to be inclusive of the Aboriginal peoples of Canada.
If Re Eskimos were in any degree relevant to the legal history of racism in Canada, then James Walker would have included it among the historical cases studied in 'Race,' Rights and the Law in the Supreme Court of Canada.
Neither the question posed by the cabinet nor the answer given by the Supreme Court addressed 'race definition.' The case had nothing to do with what the Inuit or, for that matter, the Indians actually were, but with legislative responsibility for the Inuit.

 Colour-Coded: A Legal History of Racism in Canada, 1900-1950 by James W. St. G. Walker   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Reviewed in University of Toronto Quarterly by JAMES W. The jury has returned, and the verdict is confirmed: the Canadian tradition of racial equality is a historical myth.
Despite distinctive laws and administrative structures that have usually dictated separate treatment from historians, the Aboriginal peoples do belong in a discussion of `race' in Canada, and Backhouse adds a completeness to the rainbow of colour-coded disadvantage she contemplates.
This book is a welcome contribution to the discussion of these issues, and will help to move Canadian understanding towards an acceptance of the fact that the conventional wisdom about `race' requires urgent revision.

For Canada at large, an increase in per capita alcohol consumption of 1 litre was accompanied by an increase in accident mortality of 5.9 among males and 1.9 among females per 100 000 inhabitants.
Among males there was a significant association with alcohol for both falling accidents, motor vehicle accident and other accidents, but the association was insignificant for drowning accidents.
Changes in alcohol consumption have had substantial effects on most of the main types of fatal accidents in Canada during the second half of the 20th century.
