My mottled and confusing clump of skills, best set in service of those around me and my community, are crying out for me to contend. My capacity for leadership, diplomacy and frankness have the potential for good effect in my city, which I hold so dear. Then that is it, dear reader. It is settled. I will run for Mayor of Toronto.
Beauty, love and remembrance are the ultimate legacy of 1994. And so, too, is my beautiful adopted Rwandan daughter who has found the path to reconciliation.
I woke up Wednesday morning to a message from my friend Nathan. He had been attacked on his way home from another friend's house. In spite of how fortunate he is to be alive, this story didn't have to end this way. One of the most troubling parts of what happened is the fact that no one stopped to help him while he was lying there unconscious. We can't let it be this way. If you see someone being assaulted or attacked, please do something. I'm not saying that you should intervene or put yourself in danger, but there are so many ways to help.
If beer companies advertised countries, Dos Equis would rep Canada -- it is the most interesting country in the world. But many of those living here would never guess it. Hence the need for an internet list to all Canadians. You're welcome.
We want these bears dead. This is the message the B.C. government's "reallocation policy" sends across the country. This policy is also preventing the implementation of an innovative solution to end the commercial trophy hunting of grizzlies and other large carnivores throughout B.C.'s Great Bear Rainforest.

Currently, Canada is operating a temporary foreign worker program under which employers may bring foreign workers into Canada to work for a set period of time. The temporary workers are bound to their employer and may not quit for any reason or seek other employment. As it turns out, the control employers have over the workers runs far deeper than that at least in some cases.
This coming season, in Churchill, MB, we visit the Tundra Inn and Pub, where they specialize in Northern comfort food like elk pie. It's the farthest distance we've travelled for the show; it took us two days to get there, but it was totally worth it.
The news of our Quebec wunderkind Xavier Dolan in the 2014 Cannes film festival official competition was confirmed this morning. Xavier Dolan joi...
Here I must trespass on the impolite, and I'll begin by restoring to the record the excised bits in which Jim Flaherty was a soldier of Mike Harris's "Common Sense Revolution." The idea that he was a non-ideological moderate would have been laughed out of the room, even by the man himself. Moderate was an insult he applied to his leadership rival, that pink and pale McGuinty imitation Ernie Eves. As Ontario's Attorney General and Finance Minister, Flaherty was one of Harris's most consistent and reliable true believers, mocked (like Harris himself) for applying his tough-on-crime universal restorative elixir to homelessness and poverty.
Victoria's Secret wanted to meet with me -- I almost fainted at the thought! It was a girl's dream come true. I barely slept and I woke up with the world's largest pimple, probably the biggest one I have ever had. I was told to strip down and stand against this white wall where multiple photos were taken of me while these two ladies went through my portfolio.
So it looks like the 'magic bullet' solution has been found at last to cure Canada's health care woes: medical tourism. It's a revenue-generating solution for a cash-strapped system, we are told. A handful of other hospitals already engage in this practice. Should we break out the champagne and celebrate? Not so fast.
Have you seen the numbers lately? We should be celebrating in the streets! Recent economic performance has driven unemployment rates down to levels that many believed would not be seen for years to come. So why doesn't it feel that way?
Although water treatment and purification technology offer hope, most current desalination technologies are based on energy-intensive processes that are limited and carry a big price tag.
Canadians can handle winters... well, most winters. However this year has pushed everyone past their breaking points, leaving us feeling beaten down. ...
Spooky stuff began to happen in 1930 when a new family moved in. They claimed to see the ghost of their son, a young war hero who had died in WWI.
