Craig and Marc Kielburger | December 8, 2016 | Canada Living
There's a new cadre of indigenous chefs who are part historian, part cultural ambassador. Piecing together recipes long passed down orally, Chef David Wolfman helps people find a sense of history and identity through food.

Just Say No... To Fragrance

Lisa Borden | December 8, 2016 | Canada Living
Being clean and smelling great should never mean using manufactured, toxic substances that you will inhale and absorb. We are conditioned to understand that littering is bad, and that pollution is toxic-- but using fragrance in your home, or workplace, or on your body is also polluting our shared air and world.

Linda Simpson | December 8, 2016 | Canada Living
In many ways it is a values question. What do we owe our parents? It was a question I posed to several friends and the answers come from their own words. Parenting is the one job that has no prerequisite and requires no experience. Yet, parents have an enduring effect on our entire lives.

It's Finally Men's Turn To Embrace So-Called 'Feminine' Fabrics

Leah Morrigan | December 8, 2016 | Canada Style
True self-expression must have freedom without gendered boundaries. To allow men true freedom, freedom of their senses, we must loosen the knots of gender expression through clothing and fabric and allow men to be who they naturally are.

Women Around The World Have Suffered For Long Enough

Oxfam Canada | December 8, 2016 | Canada Impact
Some of my most painful memories are of my friends and cousins crying as they were taken away to be married to men they didn't know, often much older. I grew up seeing young girls sheltered by my mother in our house from being forced into early marriage. Those were the fortunate few. There are many complex causes driving this violence against women and girls. But it is ultimately rooted in the reality that women and men are not treated equally.

Debra Macleod | December 8, 2016 | Canada Living

The 3 Stages Of Mastering A Foreign Language

Steve Kaufmann | December 8, 2016 | Canada Living
At the banquet of life, each language is another course. The better you can use languages, your own and others, the more you can enjoy the feast. At least that has been my experience. I have achieved varying degrees of fluency in 16 languages, and look forward to learning more. To me, there are three stages of language acquisition.

Kathleen Trotter | December 7, 2016 | Canada Living
I love sampling different fun fitness classes -- both at home (in Toronto) and when traveling. Trying something new helps me stay motivated, plus booking my workouts before I fly ensures that I always work out. I would never forfeit my money by not showing up.

Trump's Presidency May Have A Global Impact On Reproductive Rights

Sandeep Prasad | December 7, 2016 | Canada Politics
That this presidency could have serious impacts on reproductive rights in the U.S. is clear. But another serious concern is the global impact the election will have; the U.S. is the biggest donor for reproductive health in developing countries. This could mean the closure of organizations and clinics that provide life-saving services.

Jackie B. Hamilton | December 7, 2016 | Canada Living
The more experiences I acquire in my life, the more I realize that the most significant insights are those that take time to unfold.

It is then that we experience true freedom, because we finally understand why it was necessary to go through it all.

Diversity In Books: Kind Of A No-Brainer

Romi Moondi | December 7, 2016 | Canada Living
We, as a society, are on a streak of consuming content based on totally imagined, impossible-to-relate-to worlds. Indeed, this is us, a human race that's fully accepting of bug-eyed, slimy aliens. And yet... a story that involves a different culture or a different skin colour is simply a little too..."out there?"
