Canada Writing Competition

ARPA Canada and Holland Shopping Centre have teamed up to co-sponsor a letter to the editor contest with $500 in prizes. ARPA Canada says: “Letters to the editor are a free and effective means to be a voice for truth, grace, justice, and common sense in our communities. We have seen some excellent letters published in Alberta in response to our Stand Up for Freedom campaign in the past week. We have also seen entire editorials from large papers written in response to letters by ARPA readers. This is a great opportunity for schools, people who have never written a letter to the editor before, and the seasoned pros!”

Canada’s Dire Straits

Canada’s broadcast standards council has ruled that Dire Straits’ 1985 hit Money for Nothing should be censored because of a homosexual slur in its lyrics. The council said the British band’s use of a slur referring to gay people three times in the song breaches the national broadcasters’ code of ethics. The council said an edited version of the song could be played. For story: http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/entertainment/a/-/entertainment/8649041/dire-straits-song-should-be-censored/
