I Regret 'Doing More' To Fit In As A Minority In Canada

I made a choice to abandon learning Vietnamese as a kid. Part of it was me being lazy. I didn't want to spend Saturdays inside another school. Three hours learning about the Vietnamese alphabet can seem like prison when you're six or if you're 12. But another part of it was me wanting to fit in. To stay at home. To watch weekend morning cartoons. To have stuff to talk about during recess come Monday. I made a choice to turn my back on part of my identity. In return, I got to fit in within a multi-ethnic schoolyard in a suburban Ontario neighbourhood circa 1995. Today, that decision would make a majority of Canadians pretty happy.

Living on $1.75 a Day Opened Our Eyes to the Struggle of Millions

The rules were simple: consume only $1.75 worth of food and drink each day, and do it for five days. We pooled our money together and bought groceries as a team, but each of us went into the Live Below The Line Challenge with different strategies, expectations and motivations. What began as a 'fun' food challenge for three Huffington Post Canada editors turned into a eye-opening experience we won't forget.

Breaking Bread: How These Ovens Are Safeguarding A Dying Language

Drive around Cape St. George in Newfoundland's Port au Port peninsula and you might overlook one of the province's four bread ovens. There aren't any neon "open" signs, nor will you find a single TripAdvisor sticker labeled anywhere. And if you're trying to find a Yelp review, well, good luck with that.
