NORTH VANCOUVER—RCMP briefly arrested four CUPW postal workers who occupied the downtown community office of Conservative MP Andrew Saxton yesterday, refusing to leave until the Harper government reverses its decision to invoke back-to-work legislation. The RCMP said they relayed the group's ultimatum to Saxton in Ottawa, but had to make the arrests on a charge of assault by trespass after Saxton's office staff complained. About 50 fellow workers and supporters held a noisy information picket and drivers were constantly honking to show support for the locked-out workers. image by Murray Bush/flux photo

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
