HEU strike: symptom or problem?…The strike by members of the Hospital Employee Union continues as the list of surgery cancellations grows. Adjunct professor and health expert Tom Koch can look at the divisive issues, including the rationale behind the government’s proposed cuts to health care and the union’s response. Koch will participate in a conference looking at the impact of the Romanow report on health care in Canada May 20-21 at Harbour Centre. SFU labour historian Mark Leier can look at such issues as wage rates (noting that historically, BC's wages have been the highest in the country since Confederation), collective bargaining, and the proposed concessions and cutbacks the government is demanding.

Withdrawals from Iraq…The number of troops is falling in Iraq as countries such as Spain, Honduras and the Dominican Republic have decided to pull out as violence in Iraq increases, while others, including Britain, may hold the line on sending more troops. Political scientist Anil Hira can look at the impact of the countries’ withdrawal while international politics expert Andre Gerolymatos can also reflect on what an impending change of guard at the office of the US ambassador to Iraq signifies.
