We might be in need of some redemption as well, and to make ourselves feel better, we made a list of the 13 naughtiest hotels in the world. Let's just say, they're definitely getting coal.
World leaders are in Paris for the COP 21 conference to demonstrate commitment to emissions reduction and a renewed, global commitment to sustainability. However, there is another group that will have a significant impact on emissions targets. That group is cities.
Parents need to understand what the signs are to ensure their daughters are safe. All young girls can be targets for predators. Girls who are being bullied at school, struggling with changes on the home front or otherwise dealing with self-esteem issues are especially vulnerable.
Getting food into Pikangikum has a sense of urgency, as there is a narrow window of time when the RFDA is able to safely deliver food to the community before the winter freeze sets in. Both the Health Centre and School Meal Program are desperately in need of food, and cannot wait an additional two months until the ice roads fully form.
They are stalkers, searching for someone to target and their hunting grounds are convenience stores, in malls, parks and, in Jessica's case, our local recreation centres. We thought that type of crime happened in other countries, not Canada. We were wrong.
For broken, derelict and underutilized urban space, 2015 was a good year. In North American cities, including Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Toronto and elsewhere, landscape architects contributed to the 'urban renaissance.'
I want parents and teachers to know that this is a real danger to their girls. I think that if I'd known the signs that I was being groomed for sex trafficking, it might not have happened to me. Predators don't discriminate. Raising awareness and knowing the signs is our first step to ending sex trafficking in Canada.
The reality is that in Toronto, as in most police services across the continent, the vast majority of serving police officers are exceptional public servants. The bad news is that reality is entirely irrelevant. People don't form judgments or base their decisions and actions on reality. They base them on their perceptions.

The dog appears to be well fed and in no way unhealthy. However, Buddy is obviously lacking human contact, daily walks and most importantly love and attention. His owners ignore him each day and show zero concern for him or the neighbours. In their eyes, and with City approval, they're doing nothing wrong.
There is something very civilized about drinking tea, and not just because the experience can be ceremonious when it comes to afternoon endeavors. Tea...
The crux of the problem seems to be that he wants to categorize women into one of two categories: good girls and bad girls. While this paradigm is both well-trod and seemingly straightforward, Drake makes it something more complicated.
While Tim Hortons isn't a landmark, per say, it is a coffee shop you have to visit while in Toronto. And you'll have no problem finding one, because much like Starbucks in the US, Tim Hortons are everywhere in Toronto.
With such a hectic and quite possibly erratic schedule, you ask, "How am I suppose to fit exercise and healthy eating in such a festive season?"
In Toronto, the community event Supper with Syria, is a social experiment to allow Syrians, some of whom are refugees, to become co-creators of the narratives on Syria and refugees, by showcasing their culture and their stories.
When a restaurant is owned by a company whose vision and mandate does not address food -- but rather sports and entertainment -- it gives me cause for concern. MLSE: Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, is an archetype of this business model. But of course, a company such as this would (inevitably) expand into food-focused outlets, regardless.
The world of fitness is one that seldom stays the same, and for good reason. As we get closer to the New Year, a time when many of us vow to make exercise a priority, here is my forecast on fitness trends that will get you pumped to try something new and turn your resolutions into reality.
