Good Sunday Morning! And what a week it was.  Major political assumptions were turned upside down – chief among them “nothing happens in politics in the dog days of summer.” For a quick review, on Monday, the Minister of Finance Bill Morneau stepped down and also announced he was resigning his Toronto Centre seat.

Good Sunday Morning! So here’s a good one.  An epidemiologist, a virologist and a pediatrician walked into a bar…. Just kidding.  They are way too smart to walk into a bar in a pandemic. Is it too soon for COVID humour? And how about how we can no longer use that expression “avoid it like the plague”? ...

75 years ago today, Canadian uranium from Saskatchewan loaded in a nuclear warhead detonated, destroying the Japanese city of Nagasaki.  The radionuclides from that chain reaction continued to poison people for long after in radioactive fallout.

I was brought up short last Sunday morning for forgetting to make note that July 20, 2020 – an auspicious date – is the 149th anniversary of British Columbia joining Canada.  On July 20, 1871 B.C. became the sixth ...

By my COVID timeline, we are just heading into week 19 of our new existence. News from south of the border makes us want to seal the border ever tighter.

It’s not every day I get good news about a campaign I have been working on for decades.  My family home in Cape Breton was on the shores of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The fossil fuel industry set its eyes on this environmentally sensitive habitat for whales and endangered leatherback turtles and healthy fisheries ...
