Date:Wed, 26 Feb 2014 08:07:00 EST
Download File:
Description: Nothing in Sochi did more to honour and advance the Olympic ideals than the worldwide fight for equality unleashed by Russia's infamous homophobic law. My post-Olympic analysis in the Toronto Star.

Title:Akaash Maharaj - Huffington Post: The True Cost of Political Corruption
Date:Sat, 07 Dec 2013 14:30:00 EST
Download File:
Description:Every year, political corruption kills 140 000 children across the world, by depriving them of food, water, and medical care. My GOPAC parliamentary colleagues and I are at the United Nations UNCAC to bring the worst offenders before the bar of international law.

Title:Akaash Maharaj - News: Corruption Declared a Crime Against Humanity
Date:Mon, 09 Dec 2013 09:30:02 EST
Download File:
Description:Reuters reports on our efforts at the United Nations: There are some forms of corruption so grave, whose effects on human life, human rights, and human welfare are so catastrophic, that they should shock the conscience of the international community and mobilise the will of nations to act across borders. They are Crimes Against Humanity, and should be prosecuted in the highest national and international courts.

Date:Wed, 10 Apr 2013 18:01:00 EDT

Description:I am enormously grateful to the Board of the Global Organization of Parliamentarians Against Corruption for their confidence in naming me their Executive Director, and I will work tirelessly to justify their faith. I feel deeply privileged to have a chance to work with GOPAC's global alliance of democratically elected parliamentarians to fight political corruption and advance the rule of law around the world.

Title:Akaash Maharaj - Projects: Tent Pegging with UNICEF Team Canada
Date:Thu, 08 Feb 2007 08:55:02 EST
Download File:
Description:Of my many eccentricities, none is as improbable as my involvement in tent pegging. Often referred to as equestrian skill-at-arms, the sport has a mounted cavalier riding at a full gallop across a timed course, on the flat and over jumps, using sword and lance to smite a succession of ground and elevated targets. Yes, really... Like most tent peggers, I was introduced to the sport through service in a cavalry regiment. Seat a man on a horse, hand him a sword, and set him off at a gallop: any ability to resist tent pegging will immediately abandon him.

Description:On the final day of competition at the world equestrian skill-at-arms championships in Oman, my horse Shomool remained in a surly mood. The rider to our left is keeping a considered distance, as Shomool had just attempted to deliver a slaying kick to his horse; Shomool's rear hooves came within centimetres of the intended victim. The warhorse's wayward bloodlust would remain with Shomool for the rest of the competition, and he seemed dejected that I insisted on coming between him and his wrath. A full account of the games is at my March 2007 blog.

Title:TVO's The Agenda: The New McCarthyism
Date:Mon, 02 Jul 2012 11:00:01 EDT
Download File:http://www.maharaj.org/video/QuickTime/a...
Description: There is no worse cancer in a free society than the thuggish impulse to equate dissent as disloyalty... The greatest patriot is the person with the courage to be the lone voice in the crowd crying out that the Emperor has no clothes. The test of our society's democratic nature is our instinct to value the right of our fellow human beings to disagree with us.

Title:TVO's The Agenda: Forgiving the Unforgivable - Akaash Maharaj Videocast
Date:Thu, 14 Jun 2012 16:15:01 EDT
Download File:http://www.maharaj.org/video/QuickTime/a...
Description: Our capacity to do violence to one another is the worst tragedy of the human condition, but it makes our still greater capacity to forgive one another all the more powerful.

Title:TVO's The Agenda: The Raj, the Reich, and the Good Fight - Akaash Maharaj Videocast
Date:Sat, 07 Apr 2012 12:00:01 EDT
Download File:http://www.maharaj.org/video/QuickTime/a...
Description: Gandhi and Bose were brothers in the hunger for justice, and both had followers who were willing to die for freedom rather than live as slaves. But one group was so blinded by passion for its cause, that it was willing to join hands with regimes whose very names have become bywords for evil in almost every spoken language on the planet.

Title:TVO's The Agenda: A Meritocracy Worth Fighting For - Akaash Maharaj Videocast
Date:Sat, 03 Mar 2012 15:45:01 EST
Download File:http://www.maharaj.org/video/QuickTime/a...
Description: Throughout our history, Canada has grown through the toil of generations of Canadians who were inspired by the belief that our country is free of the rigid class systems of the Old World, that Canadians' success or failure depends on our own efforts and our own abilities...But in recent years, we have come to doubt our faith in this meritocracy.

Title:TVO's The Agenda: Resistance is Not Futile - Akaash Maharaj Videocast
Date:Sat, 28 Jan 2012 18:00:01 EST
Download File:http://www.maharaj.org/video/QuickTime/a...
Description: In any democracy worthy of the name, it is not merely the right, but the responsibility of every citizen to resist unjust laws... but there is a contrast between making a scene, and making a difference. There is a choice between the comfort of self-righteous illusion, and the peril of self-sacrificing commitment. There is a hard journey between railing against unjust laws, and living out a life that models justice.

Title:TVO's The Agenda: Hope for the Holidays - Akaash Maharaj Videocast
Date:Sun, 18 Dec 2011 19:15:01 EST
Download File:http://www.maharaj.org/video/QuickTime/a...
Description: We will be able to hold our heads high before the judgement of history if we can reply that in our season, we held on to hope, we put aside our doubts, we came together believing in our better selves, and we remembered that we have always burned brightest as a nation during the darkest hours.

Title:TVO's The Agenda: To Lead or to Serve - Akaash Maharaj Videocast
Date:Fri, 25 Nov 2011 14:45:01 EST
Download File:http://www.maharaj.org/video/QuickTime/a...
Description: Over the past quarter century, political parties have too often lurched away from being mass movements of individual Canadians sharing a common vision of the public good, and towards being backdrops for individual party leaders who speak the language of democracy while wielding near-absolute power over their elected caucuses.

Title:TVO's The Agenda: Liberalism of Conviction and of Convenience - Akaash Maharaj Videocast
Date:Fri, 11 Nov 2011 19:10:01 EST
Download File:http://www.maharaj.org/video/QuickTime/a...
Description: The 20th century began as the age of the dictator. It ended with liberalism having come of age as the ascendant political philosophy across the world. Yet liberal parties everywhere are in crisis. Can they grow with the success of liberalism, or have they been outgrown by the success of their own political philosophy?

Title:TVO's The Agenda: Faith in Secularism - Akaash Maharaj Videocast
Date:Fri, 24 Jun 2011 01:36:01 EDT
Download File:http://www.maharaj.org/video/QuickTime/a...
Description: Speaking on TVOntario's The Agenda with Steve Paikin, I make the case that separation of church and state is as much in the interests of the church as it is in the interests of the state. However, upholding the ideal of the secular state often demands more courage than we might expect.

Title:TVO's The Agenda: The Arab Spring - Akaash Maharaj Videocast
Date:Thu, 31 Mar 2011 12:31:01 EDT
Download File:http://www.maharaj.org/video/QuickTime/a...
Description: In my broadcast essay for TVOntario's The Agenda with Steve Paikin, I argue that despite our sometimes chequered history in the region, Western states have an obligation to enforce the Libyan no-fly zone, both to protect civilians and to ensure that the Arab Spring and the hopes for democracy in the region are not snuffed out in the killing fields of Libya.

Title:TVO's The Agenda: Truth, Casualties, and War - Akaash Maharaj Videocast
Date:Sun, 21 Nov 2010 10:01:01 EST
Download File:http://www.maharaj.org/video/QuickTime/a...
Description: Videocast of my televised essay for TVOntario's The Agenda with Steve Paikin, on Canada's role in Afghanistan: Our ability to successfully conclude the mission and effect an honourable departure is being prejudiced by an ignominious political retreat from the truth: the truth about why we went to Afghanistan in the first place and what we are actually trying to achieve there... I fear that the current government is unwilling to engage in an honest national debate about our objectives in Afghanistan, because it believes that Canadians prefer easy lies to hard truths. But Canadians are not the fools or the cowards that such politicians take us for.

Title:TVO's The Agenda: An Injection of Moralism - Akaash Maharaj Videocast
Date:Mon, 25 Oct 2010 09:01:01 EDT
Download File:http://www.maharaj.org/video/QuickTime/a...
Description: In this, my second broadcast essay for TVOntario's The Agenda with Steve Paikin, I argue that the efforts by the federal government to place emotion above reason and shut down Insite are unworthy of our country's better traditions and higher responsibilities. It is little more than an effort to purchase easy political popularity at the expense of a wretched and unpopular segment of society.

Title:TVO's The Agenda: The Rights of Vulgar Little Cowards - Akaash Maharaj Videocast
Date:Sat, 02 Oct 2010 08:01:01 EDT
Download File:http://www.maharaj.org/video/QuickTime/a...
Description: In this, my maiden broadcast essay for TVOntario's The Agenda with Steve Paikin, I argue that freedom of expression is too fundamental a right to be casually abridged, and that the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal must be stripped of its power to regulate public expression.

Description: CBC Radio One's Fresh Air interviews me on whether Team Canada will be able to repeat our improbable dominance of tent pegging, the cavalry sport of horse, sword, sabre and lance, as I saddle-up to compete at the 2010 International Championships in New Delhi.
