The Federal government, in 1983 implemented a “Task Force on Child Care” to create quality care for Canadian children (Gestwicki & Bertrand, 2008, p. 204). It made various recommendations including “publicly funded child care”, but in '86, the new Conservative government implemented the “Special Committee on Child Care” which did not advocate for a “national child care system” (Gestwicki & Bertrand, 2008, p. 204). Closing in on '88, the Conservative government finally made a proposal for a “National Child Care strategy” which became the “Canada Child Care Act” (Gestwicki & Bertrand, 2008, p. 204). This strategy did not pass into law as the government was defeated. The government went back to the liberal party in '93, but because of the uncertainty of the past, the national child care strategy become harder to implement (Gestwicki & Bertrand, 2008).

The FBI obliged their Canadian equivalent with a then unpublished paper entitled, “Compliant Victims of the Sexual Sadist”. This paper surveyed seven women who were incarcerated for crimes they committed with their spouses or lovers. Normally this would explain their criminal behavior as a consequence of their partner’s harsh treatment, or in other words they were beaten into being bad. In this meeting the decision was made, the compliant victim-sexual sadist model best fit the pieces of the relationship between Bernardo and Homolka. Keep in mind that Ron Mackay, the RCMP officer who introduced the unpublished “Compliant Victims” paper at this meeting was a protégé of Roy Hazelwood, the FBI agent who co-authored it.
Aileen Wuornos was an American serial killer who murdered seven men in Florida between 1989 and 1990. The case was a media sensation, not only because Wuornos was a woman but also because it touched upon many other factors of interest to a sensationalist media, including sex and sexuality. By the time she was executed on October 9th 2002, Wuornos had become one of modern America's most notorious serial killers, and her case had divided public opinion. Today, the Aileen Wuornos case can be seen as a testing ground for the debate over criminological approaches to rehabilitation, and as an example of the different theories regarding why an individual commits murder.

When in 1927 the Canadian Supreme court decided that the term “persons” used in Section 24 of the British North America Act did not include women. The Canadian Court Up stipulated that the term "person" did not apply to women, alleging that when the British North America Act was signed, jurisprudence did not consider women as "qualified persons." If the Constitution had included women in this definition, it would have been duly noted. Before this point, although women had the right to vote in many provinces they were not legally recognized as people and they did absolutely lose any rights they may have had once married. The Famous 5 appealed the ruling in front of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council of London, which reversed the verdict of the Supreme Court of Canada.
The Maoist economic strategy, a basis for a Chinese Miracle? Abstract Mao Zedong’s policies don’t usually appear in the popular belief as a cause of the economic success that succeeded his death in 1976. The economic consequences of Maoist economic strategies are generally considered catastrophic; the Great Leap Forward and its 30 million death famine is the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of such strategies. It’s Deng Xiaoping’s reforms starting in 1978, two years after Mao’s death, that are generally considered the main causes for the 1980´s and 1990’s accelerated growth. But there is a less common literature that puts the economic strategy of Mao Zedong as the basis for Chinese economic miracle by affirming that Deng Xiaoping’s reforms only exploited in a correct manner an already built solid economic system installed during the Maoist period.
