Silencing White Men Endangers True Equality In Canada

Canada continues to make important strides toward more equality. But there are storm clouds on the horizon that endanger the continuing pursuit of true equality. What started as a legitimate change to bring about equality and transformation of how we viewed, treated and spoke about each other has now ossified into a rarely breached wall of silence, a silence reinforced by the onset of the West's indifference to its own good, bad or ugly -- but distinct -- societies, their values and norms. Call it white man's burden or guilt, a guilt for the sins of the past now manifesting itself in the white man's fear.

Blind Pit Bull Stuck Behind Strict B.C. City Bylaw

As Leanne has said "I am a bit of a rule follower." She registered Peanut because the blind dog shows characteristics of a pit bull, and this then subjected her to the bylaw requiring a muzzle in public. But this creates an obvious additional issue for Peanut as she uses her snout and whiskers to help her navigate.

City Hall Pay Is Out Of Control

Taxpayers and watchdogs often focus their attention on the top of the government salary spectrum. Government executives are increasingly overpaid, especially at the municipal and regional district level. But it's not just the top end that is out of control. Taxpayers are overpaying for labour throughout the system.

What I Learned from a Year of Eating Out in Richmond

When I took on 365 consecutive days of eating in Richmond and writing about it, I learned things. Many things. First and foremost, I learned far more about Asian food than I could have possibly anticipated. This job gave me a foundation for Asian cuisine that otherwise would have taken me years to establish, and I'm grateful for such a remarkable culinary education. I was exposed to so many new ingredients and dishes, and am now pretty darn capable with a pair of chopsticks. Importantly, I also learned I have SO MUCH MORE to learn about Asian food.

Of course, there's still plenty more to eat, see, and learn, but here are my top 10 favourite dishes so far.
