Renewed Calls For Independent Health Assessment For Ailing Elephant Lucy

Given Lucy's respiratory, arthritic, foot problems and emotional distress, it's unfair to expose Lucy to the long frigid winters, and deprive social interactions with her own kind. It's unconscionable to exploit an ailing elephant for profit under the guise of education at the Edmonton Valley Zoo.

On October 19th, Let's Remember Who We Are As Canadians

Michael Rowe | Posted 10.15.2016 | Canada Politics
Michael Rowe

There is nothing intrinsically "Canadian," let alone "conservative," about leveraging insecurity, racism and xenophobia for votes through ethnic scapegoating. That is not a "conservative" strategy; it's a fascist strategy with a long and bloody history, and it has no place in Canada. On October 19th, we have a chance to "take our country back." We have the chance to declare once and for all that who and what we are as Canadians is no longer for sale. We have a chance to steer Canada off its collision course with history, to save it from derailing and crashing beyond our ability to recognize it, let alone repair it.

Doug Ford, Thank You For The One Promise You Did Keep

John Mraz | Posted 09.28.2014 | Canada Politics
John Mraz

In 2012, referring to council, Doug Ford said: "I can't get anywhere with these monkeys." Was that a term of endearment? How can Mayor Ford expect to get anything done at City Hall when you use such language? Oh, that's right. Since then, he mostly hasn't. No need to answer. When you told the father of an autistic child who rightly and democratically challenged your views to "go to hell," what were you thinking?

How My Writing Allowed Me to Heal

Shaena Lambert | Posted 03.11.2014 | Canada Living
Shaena Lambert

In February, 2012, as I worked to complete my book, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was thrust into a world of MRIs, visits to the cancer clinic, operations, radiation. I was afraid. Yet, to my surprise, I found myself writing in a more focused way than ever before, with more efficiency and less drama. Even on bad days, I headed to my desk. By disappearing into writing, I had a refuge, and to my surprise the stories I had been having trouble finishing finished themselves. The cancer may have nailed me, but I really felt, as I sat writing under that apple tree, that I was nailing it back.

Why Rob Ford Will Always Have the Support of Young Toronto Elites

Mitch Wolfe | Posted 01.23.2014 | Canada Politics
Mitch Wolfe

These new young Toronto elites are very pro business and pro downtown Toronto development. They love Porter Air for business and pleasure. And they don't like to pay a lot of taxes. They certainly don't want their hard-earned salaries supporting feather-bedding unionists, with jobs for life at City Hall and unlimited pensions.

We Must Tackle Climate Change Together

Margaret Atwood | Posted 01.23.2014 | Canada
Margaret Atwood

Whatever you think of the causes -- man-made (through CO2 levels created by the burning of fossil fuels), natural (as part of a solar cycle) or divine (as part of a plan to destroy the world -- Canada's climate is changing. Even recently, people have said they "don't believe" in climate change, as if it is akin to Santa Claus or the tooth fairy. But chemistry and physics are not beliefs; they are ways of measuring the physical world. They don't negotiate, and they don't hand out second chances.
