The Raptors Lost Against Cleveland But They've Won Our Respect

Brian Trinh | May 28, 2016 | Canada Living
While the Raptors are losers, they're also record setters. They're history makers. And most importantly, they were the underdogs. Nobody likes a loser, but everyone can get behind an underdog.

Educated Consumers Want Companies To Go Green

Nikki Fotheringham | May 27, 2016 | Canada Living
As consumers get more savvy, they are increasingly demanding products that are organic, ethically sourced and produced in an environmentally responsible way. Consumers are increasingly aware of the negative effect chemicals have on their health and will buy organic iterations of their favourite products whenever they can.

Failure To Launch, Or A Smarter Way Of Living For Everyone?

Craig and Marc Kielburger | May 27, 2016 | Canada Parents
Let's ditch the stereotypes and ingrained ideas of what independence and having a home mean. Prodigal youth haven't failed to launch and their parents haven't failed to parent. They're both flying in a smarter direction.

What Does RSVP Truly Mean?

Jenna Em | May 27, 2016 | Canada Living
Undoubtedly you've seen the words RSVP printed on wedding, birthday party, or similar invitations -- but do you truly know what RSVP means in English, and how these words should be interpreted?

Blunt (And Loving) Advice For My Perfectionist Daughter

Jacqueline Melissen | May 27, 2016 | Canada Parents
You want whatever you're doing to be perfect, and you get so disappointed and annoyed when the vision in your head doesn't match the reality. I know you, my love, and I know that it's so frustrating for you when things don't go right, when you are not living up to your own very high expectations for yourself.

The Message In A Bottle Needs To Change

Lianne Castelino | May 27, 2016 | Canada Parents
I'm not saying having a drink should be a punishable offence. I am saying that as a society and as individuals, we tend to be rather cavalier about our general attitude towards alcohol. Nonchalant about the powerful impact it can have on one's faculties, decision-making and motor skills, among other things.

Top 10 Tips For Women Travelling Alone

Laura Berg | May 27, 2016 | Canada Travel
Trust yourself. If something does not seem right to you -- leave. Don't worry about being polite. Don't worry about looking foolish. Women who have found themselves in harrowing situations often say later that they wish they had listened to that queasy feeling.

No, You Do Have Time To Read

Kathy Buckworth | May 27, 2016 | Canada Living
Five books a week? Many of my friends are shocked that I can get through so many. "I wish! I simply don't have the time," many of them say... If you've binge watched even one Netflix series, you've had time to read. If you've been on Facebook scrolling through posts from a month ago, you've had time to read.

5 Fun Nutrition Facts You May Not Know

Kathleen Trotter | May 27, 2016 | Canada Living
Ditch the "drink as much water as possible when exercising" and "always drink eight to 10 cups of water during daily life" mentality! Fitness professionals used to be told to advise everyone to drink as much as possible when working out, and to always drink a minimum of eight to 10 glasses of water per day. Turns out, neither guideline is ideal.

Chewbacca Mom And The Power Of Authenticity

Marcia Sirota | May 27, 2016 | Canada Parents
The true power of the video and the reason why so many people watched it, was the fact that Candace Payne was able to laugh out loud without an ounce of self-consciousness. Ms. Payne was willing to look silly online, and I think that this ability to be so authentic and free was the real reason why her video got over 140 million views.

Why Are We Shaming All The Single People?

Alicia Meek | May 27, 2016 | Canada Living
After a lot of self-work and love, I dropped the crap and chose to love myself, every wrinkle, every imperfection inside and out. This form of self-love is what we could be spreading, as opposed to fear of aging and the fear of ending up alone. We were born alone, and we will die alone, whether or not you have a husband and kids, this is true for all of us.

New In Town: Brunch At Chase Fish & Oyster

Tiffany Leigh | May 26, 2016 | Canada Living
The Chase Fish & Oyster, the more relaxed sister of the upscale Chase fine dining spot, is the latest restaurant to throw their Sunday brunch hat in the proverbial ring. Having just debuted their menu at the end of April, I had a chance to taste a few of the menu items.

Single Girl's Guide To Decorating: Do These Design Books Stand The Test Of Time?

Simone Katerine | May 26, 2016 | Canada Living
To honour how far I've come, a few months ago I decided to treat myself to a collection of (now classic) home decor books that I've been lusting after since my Rubbermaid bin days. But, as true in both love and books, not everything (or everyone) lives up to your expectations.

Private Eyes: A Home Team Of TV Crime

D.K. Latta | May 26, 2016 | Canada TV
Premiering May 26th on Global is a new light-hearted Canadian detective series starring Jason Priestley and Cindy Sampson and called, bluntly enough, Private Eyes. It's a fairly generic light-hearted PI series. And I actually mean that as a compliment!

How I'll Survive My Daughter's Transition To Daycare

Tara Mandarano | May 26, 2016 | Canada Parents
One day I will turn around and you won't be sitting in the car seat behind me; you will be the one driving. That day is still far away, but this new path you are on is another step in that direction. Part of me wants to keep you close forever. I know this can't happen, but I feel the urge all the same.

6 Places To Meet Tamil Singles

TamilCulture | May 26, 2016 | Canada Living
I'm a happily married Tamil man sharing my insights in terms of where I think Tamil singles will have the most luck with meeting other Tamil singles. This list was a result of recent discussions I've had with single friends. By discussion, I mean more of a debate with me trying to get them to think beyond the standard club or bar/lounge.

The Time For Pretty Words About First Nations Has Passed

Cathy Elliott | May 26, 2016 | Canada Living
When I hear about more suicide pacts, attempts, successes, my heart breaks into pieces. I see their faces. I see them smiling, joking, wrestling with life's mysteries, reaching out to their grandparents and my heart bursts with love, pride and despair. When I see them dance, sing, drum, draw, write and speak eloquently about the world as they see it, my mind is overwhelmed by their potential. And I am struck dumb by the idea that their potential is being smothered. Willfully. With impunity.

Fighting The Overmedication Of Canadian Seniors

Alan Cassels | May 26, 2016 | Canada Living
The case of 'too much medication' in Canadian seniors is finally starting to be recognized for the serious problem it has become. Seniors are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of too many prescription drugs because aging affects their ability to process medications.

How Menstruation Affects The Sustainable Development Goals

Sabrina Rubli | May 26, 2016 | Canada Impact
There is one critical issue that has been omitted from the SDGs -- the issue of addressing menstrual health and hygiene. Menstruation affects half of the global population. It is a topic that all women and girls are intimately familiar with and yet it is so rarely talked about on the global stage.
