A class-action lawsuit is not the best way for the thousands of families across Canada affected by Motherisk’s flawed drug and alcohol testing to fight for compensation in court, a Toronto judge has ruled. In his decision not to certify a proposed national class-action lawsuit related to the litany of problems uncovered at the Hospital for Sick Children’s Motherisk lab, Superior Court Justice Paul Perell said that because of the “intensely individualistic” nature of the claims, individual lawsuits would be more “efficient and expeditious.” “The significant damages are caused not by the common unreliability of the tests, but by an individual’s test being wrong with sometimes tragic consequences,” he said. “Class members should not suffer the disappointment of a class action that will not take them far enough on the path to substantive justice.” Read more: Fallout from Motherisk’s flawed tests a national tragedy What’s ailing SickKids?

OPINION: I was in my twenties and would be spending time in France. The only French phrase I knew was ‘’Je ne comprends pas’’. Not to worry. I took one of Victoria University’s Continuing Education evening classes. The tutor, a native speaker, was friendly and helpful, and the course didn’t break the budget. We didn’t conjugate verbs as much as listen to recordings of real French people buying tickets at la gare and food at le resto. We also ate fromage and baguettes, and for the last class we drank vin – rouge et blanc – and ordered escargots at a French restaurant. I think I even learned un peu de Français along the way.

Neeraj Ghaywan on the segment titled Geeli Pucchi starring Aditi Rao, Konkona National Award-winning director Neeraj Ghaywan, who shot to fame helming Masaan , is wielding the megaphone back in the upcoming anthology Ajeeb Daastaans. He has directed the segment titled Geeli Pucchi starring Aditi Rao Hydari and Konkona Sen Sharma . The story traces a lesbian romance between its two female protagonists, but goes beyond its relationship plot to look at the complexity of patriarchy, class, gender and sexuality, which he feels is good to explore. This is not the first time that Ghaywan has brought forward these elements in his work. His globally-feted 2015 release Masaan showcased all these, too. So much is said lately about inclusivity and yet sections of society continue to suffer, and remain marginalised. The issue, of course, is more complicated than it seems, feels Ghaywan. “If you are talking about the marginalised communities and the subaltern, there is … [Read more...] about Exploring patriarchy, class, gender
