Killing Us Softly 3: Jean Kilbourne’s important new film reviews if and how the image of women in advertising has changed over the last 20 years.

Consequences — The Private Side of Britain In British Columbia, the Liberal agenda threatens to transform our lives — Private Hospitals, PFIs, Downsizing. But this agenda is not new. It has been tried in other places, with results that have had a huge impact on ordinary working people. This video examines the results of this agenda in the country where it was first pioneered: Maggie Thatcher’s Britain. Consequences is essential viewing for every Canadian who cares about the future of the communities we live and work in.
