For instance, in this special issue of the CJUR Maya Seshia reports on her interviews with street sex-trade workers who have endured the violence, marginalization, and stigmatization emanating from the intersecting systemic forces that prevail in the inner city--namely, patriarchy and colonialism.
The authors would like to thank Susan Prentice, Maya Seshia, Jim Silver, and the two anonymous CJUR reviewers for their helpful feedback on various versions of this paper.
This issue was examined closely by Buckland and Martin in the first WIRA sponsored issue (CJUR
14:1 Summer 2005) in the article "Two-Her Banking: The Rise of Fringe Banks in Winnipeg's Inner City." Kohm's article concludes that victimization of welfare recipients could be decreased by the establishment of a community-based financial institution that is responsive to their needs.

On behalf of CIP I would like to express our Institute's appreciation to CJUR

Further, the publication of this material in association with CJUR
, a well established scholarly journal with strict peer review procedures, ensures that the issue will include high quality contributions about planning in Canada that might otherwise have been directed to international journals that are not readily available to many Canadian planning practitioners.
