The Winter 2008 edition of Making Waves has been released on-line at 
www.cedworks.com/waves.html. Much of the content concerns to the 
leadership which the community sector can offer the public in a time of 
growing distress and disillusionment with neo-liberalism. At the moment, 
we are a lot stronger on creativity than we are on clarity.
 
Find a summary of the contents below. Apologies for cross-postings

using it?
 
What's so Special about Nova Scotia?
As the mystique of neo-liberalism crumbles, the many ways in which a 
"have-not" province mobilizes and deploys community capital are taking 
on a different aspect.
