  • Exclusive: Tories to require a vote on changing elections

    Justin Trudeau and Thomas Mulcair have both vowed to change the way Canada chooses its prime minister. The current prime minister, Stephen Harper, has no such plans but he does vow this: If any future government wants to get rid of the first-past-the-post system we’ve used since Confederation, it will need the will of the people. “Our platform would commit to legislation that would ban any government from changing our voting system without holding a referendum to secure the approval of Canadians first,” Employment and Social Development Minister Pierre Poilievre said Monday in a telephone interview from Ottawa.

  • Naomi Wolf slammed after telling young women to drop 'vocal fry'

    You've probably heard it countless times before without even noticing, or maybe you're guilty of it yourself — a speech pattern known as vocal fry, described as a creaky, nasally growl at the back of throat. This week, the seemingly innocuous mannerism made its way into the public consciousness thanks to prominent feminist writer Naomi Wolf. In an op-ed for theGuardian, she wrote that vocal fry — which is often described as "baby talk" and associated with female celebrities like Britney Spears and the Kardashians — undermines women's voices, making them sound less competent, less trustworthy, less educated and less hireable.
