Trudeau is the most impressive, practical, and smart political leader since the Jean Chrétien era. Since taking over a near-bankrupt, third place, humiliated party less than two years ago, he has made it a growing political movement. The party is now well-organized, better funded, and has attracted strong candidates and volunteers that truly represent the new Canada.
It has been clear that the Greek citizens have rejected, not just the austerity measures, but also the vicious, patronizing and corrupted political system, ruled for four decades by the conservative ND and the socialist PASOK.
The Mental Health Commission of Canada has just released the first of two reports on indicators showing how poorly we treat those with mental illness in Canada. I really have to ask why, as this is something we already know.
Being a new parent means that you are often bombarded with advice and suggestions about raising a child. Family, friends and even strangers will no doubt offer their two cents on all sorts of topics. Problem is, how do you know who to listen to? I debunk some top myths to help soon-to-be moms and dads navigate the world of parenthood.
The question has plagued dental professionals for years. Is chewing gum good or bad for your teeth? Last week, an international team of researchers provided the first comprehensive look at the impact of gum on oral health. It seems a few minutes of gum chewing might be an excellent way to keep a healthy mouth.
The adoption of the IMF reforms by the United States Congress would send a long overdue signal to rapidly growing emerging economies that the world counts on their voices, and their resources, to find global solutions to global problems.
But the fact is, if I'm a Swiss hockey player, I don't really care if I'm not going to win a gold medal. Same if I'm Latvian or Slovenian, or anything else. I'm proud to play for my country -- I'm proud to lose with my country.
The two terrorist attacks in October and the Charlie Hebdo incident in Paris have created a climate of fear in Canada around terrorism. In order to assuage these concerns, the government recently announced its intention to introduce further anti-terrorism legislation.
The 'care economy' allows people time to both make a living and do what they most care about.
Given the difficulty in achieving a breakthrough in any of the major problem areas, why is Obama going to India? What does he hope to achieve? I think the primary objective is to reinforce the strategic nature of the relationship by finding ways to enlarge the scope for joint action that are not dependent on what happens at the transactional end.
Jaime you decided to come forward with your personal experiences and give a voice to all of those who found that trying for a baby didn't go as they planned. You didn't have to share this information, but you did. By doing so, you brought awareness to infertility and hope to women all over the world.
I am curious though. I wonder what "international experts" could tell the Ministry of Education that teachers in B.C. do not already know about students and their needs?
Are National Football League referees, in addition to their duties policing a chaotic game of borderline violence, also supposed to serve as grade school hall monitors?
An advisable way to approach extracting issues of capacity with an elderly individual is through delicate conversation. It is important to avoid offending clients who may be uncomfortable, but it can be crucial to proper estate planning. Sometimes, apparent symptoms of incapacity can in fact result from cultural differences between client and lawyer.
For many women in Egypt, this Sunday will bring back particularly bitter memories -- of a brief moment when it seemed that a better future was finally within reach. Women stood alongside men throughout the 2011 uprising. However, in the years since they have faced a rising tide of violence and discrimination. And nowhere is safe.
One of the great things about doing the television series 'Young Drunk Punk' (set in Calgary in the '80s) is that I get to share the music that was so formative for me. The music that propelled me into the world. Into comedy and to Toronto. More importantly, it's really satisfying to have people hear things from this underrated era.
Like an overwhelming number of Canadians, you said -- publicly -- that you didn't want to grant telecom providers immunity for handing over our sensitive private information to government without a warrant. But then at the last minute something changed. You voted for the Bill in Parliament, and I don't mind telling you that was a huge disappointment.
Make 2015 the year where you make the effort to engage with each other -- even strangers. It doesn't mean you have to talk to every stranger you meet, but at least keep your eyes and ears open to what you might learn and experience. It could be something small such as making eye contact with others when you walk down the street.
Fun fact: At this point most people are already quitting on their New Year's resolutions. It is more often than not because they have tried to do too much. If health is your mission, focus on these points. 1) Get portion sizes under control -- We simply eat way more than we need.
The common raven is part of a pattern of rewilding migrations to southern Canada that have occurred over the last century. Bald eagles, fishers and beavers have similar homecomings. These species originally occurred in southern Canada, but retracted their ranges to northern, wilder homes.
Every year around this time, Canadian snowbirds flock south to Florida. With so many great things to do and places to see along the way (think Pennsylvania, West Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia), we decided to take a week to make the journey at least as much fun as the destination. It's not hard to do.
If humanity does not want to suffer catastrophic climate change, it must limit the global rise in temperature to a maximum of two degrees Celsius. Quebec, Canada and the world must head towards a post-carbon economy without delay. Instead of holding on to the past, why not immediately invest in the green technologies of the future?
Instead of expecting socially relevant music or artistic works from mainstream artists, it is high time for us to give our support to cultural workers or artists whose songs and other productions are the voice of the voiceless.
