Aaaand…we’re back

After a rather long hiatus– where we took the time to pursue other paths– we come back to you, our dear and rather neglected readers, hoping to keep bringing you some of the good stuff we have been bringing you for over five years now, but this time with a more re-focused and succinct perspective. There’s a saying in Spanish that goes “El Que Mucho Abarca Poco Aprieta”, loosely translating into either “Don’t...

Let That One Sink In, Canada. And Get Ready

What can I say: I called it. It may be my lifetime exposure to dictatorships. It may be my gradual and irreversible loss of faith in humanity that has made me become so jaded. It may be that I have paid too much attention to the lessons history has thrown at us. And even though I did predict it, it still hit like a bucket of very Canadian ice wintery cold water. Let that one sink in, Canada (and the rest of the world): Donald Trump is...

Why I think Donald Trump Will Win the US Presidential Election

Right off the bat, let me clarify: this is not the outcome I’m wishing for (like most sane human beings) but the one I think will take place.

Editorial: How a Speeding Ticket became a 9-month Ordeal

On this editorial I’m going to tell you a story. And to begin the story I’ll give you a little background: I’m that nerd driver who does a full stop on a stop sign and looks both ways even though there’s not a soul in sight at 6:00 in the morning.

It’s Alma Latina’s 4th Birthday Today, Folks!

Is Alma Latina Online Magazine a Blog? Is it a magazine? Is it a business? As we celebrate our 4th year those are questions that we may eventually have to respond. For the time being, however, let’s just say for the sake of argument it’s a little from column A and a little from column B. Our passion and desire to inform you, dear readers, on community, arts, cultural and political events and happenings from the Hispanic community...

A Trump Administration: The Title Alone Reads like a Horror Film

In my first year as a Communications/Political Science student at York University, our Mass Communications professor told us the story of Archie Bunker, one of the characters in the TV sitcom “All in the Family”. Billed as adult social satire, All in the Family featured a central character, Archie, played well by Carroll O’Connor. Archie’s character was created, our professor explained, as that highly politically incorrect...
