To Understand Trump, We Must Understand Ourselves

Sonny Wong | March 24, 2017 | Canada Living
Encountering a personality like Trump's is highly unusual. People like him can't rationally exist, we tell ourselves. He possesses a multitude of confounding characteristics that defy his office and position in life. But, with his combination of skills and deficiencies, he did win the presidency, didn't he? Yet we remain incredulous and struggle to come to terms with how this happened.

What Is The Temperature Of The Earth's Surface?

Shaun Lovejoy | March 24, 2017 | Canada Living
In order to quantify climate change, centennial length records are needed. Over this period, the accuracy debate has almost exclusively focused on potential human bias. For example, thermometers change with technology and often, so do their exact locations.

#FoodPorn Is Changing The Way Millennials Eat

Deepi Harish | March 24, 2017 | Canada Living
Young people are obsessed with colours, food is colourful, which means it creates great still shots. Millennials aren't obsessed with food as much as they are taking pictures of it for social engagement. Since smartphone owners and purchasers of photo editing apps and filters are still dominated by youngins, it's almost impossible for this generation to not be able to take salivating photos, upload them to social media and connect with the rest of the world. Social media is changing the way they eat, maybe even the way we non-millennials eat.

The Future Of Canada's Rental Market

The RentSeeker.ca Team | March 24, 2017 | Canada Living
2016 was a monstrous year for Canadian real estate, and it's hard to imagine what the effects of another record-setting year will have on the red hot rental market. To put things in perspective, the CREA Home Price Index jumped from 184 to 208.9 by the end of last year. The total number of home sales increased by 6.3 per cent year-over-year and anyone who tried to buy a home or condo is fully aware of what these figures meant for the price of homes.

The Sickening Hypocrisy Of Marc Emery's Criminal Charges

Karen Selick | March 24, 2017 | Canada Politics
This time around, the penalties Marc faces are so high that he will finally get the jury trial he has long desired. Let's hope the jury recognizes the injustice of being asked to impose life imprisonment on a man whose only "crime" has been to openly do something the government has agreed should be legalized.

Oh, Canada! Our beloved home, and also the home of the liquid gold known the world over as pure maple syrup. Maple syrup is as Canadian as hockey, snow, and our classic red and white. But did you know that this liquid gold also has genuine nutrition benefits?

First Nations Living In Poverty Will Change The World

Terese Marie Mailhot | March 24, 2017 | Canada Living
Nobody saw me until I had a degree. Nobody gave a damn about me in foster care, or worse, they tried to save me -- to show me how horrible Indians were, and that I should assimilate into the culture of normalcy, the every day: the middle class default.

Canadian Muslims Must Confront The Hateful Speakers In Our Midst

Junaid Jahangir | March 24, 2017 | Canada Living
The problems highlighted by CIJ News forces Muslims to confront hateful Muslim speakers in the age of increasing Islamophobia. The coming together of Muslims and Jews in the wake of Islamophobic and anti-Semitic events allows us a golden opportunity to isolate hateful speakers and render horrid texts obsolete.

This Is What It's Like To Be Black In Alberta

ByBlacks.com | March 24, 2017 | Canada Alberta
As a native Torontonian, I moved to Edmonton about three years ago. Most of my friends left Ontario when Alberta's economy was strong and every year that went by they encouraged me to come for the endless opportunities. They warned me about the racism here, but I thought they were exaggerating.

Is Canada's Multicultural Identity Only Skin-Deep?

Osman Shah | March 23, 2017 | Canada Politics
Can we say we are a multicultural society if we're unable to fundamentally accept its most basic concept: tolerance of other cultures and religions? Why is there a discrepancy between the support many Canadians show to multiculturalism -- and who often feverishly argue is the basis of Canadian identity -- and combating Islamophobia? If we're (arguably) a multicultural society then why are we also not an anti-Islamophobia society?

What if we came back around to something simple? Our goal needs to be to eat real food for what it does for our energy, immune function, and cellular function. The gym should be seen as one of many tools to build strength and get exercise.

Sealers Want To Start Annual Hunt During Pup Season. Enough Is Enough

Sheryl Fink | March 23, 2017 | Canada Living
Allowing the commercial seal slaughter to proceed while helpless pups are still nursing from their mothers is absolutely unacceptable. Harp seals are already facing threats from climate change and commercial exploitation; we should not be removing one of the few remaining protections left for this species.

Facts And Evidence Matter In Confronting Climate Crisis

David Suzuki | March 22, 2017 | Canada
As well as being a faulty assertion, pointing out the many uses for fossil fuels in an attempt to reject the need to reduce reliance on them is actually an argument in favour of burning less coal, gas and oil. Fossil fuels are useful for many purposes, so why extract, transport and burn them so rapidly and wastefully?

What We Can Learn From 'Hidden Figures'

Dr. Marie Bountrogianni | March 22, 2017 | Canada Living
As we reflect on current events, sociopolitical uncertainty throughout the world seems to have only risen from where it sat at the beginning of the year. Nearly every day brings news of yet another racist, bigotry, or sexist comment from south of the border. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are under serious threat.
