As we prepare for the holiday season, many of us are thinking about how we can be responsible consumers. The conflict in the Congo is fuelled and funded by minerals -- gold, tin, tungsten, and tantalum. Too often, these minerals end up in our cellphones, computers, and jewellery. Just as people can now give ethical diamonds, we should be able to give electronics and jewellery in good conscience.
Never base your feminism in telling other women what makes them a "good" or "bad" feminist. Being a good, compassionate person should be your only criteria, and wearing makeup or liking Sex and the City should not be an issue.
You never took the easy route, you understood that great anger and violence can never build a nation, and you united a divided country. It is time Canada learned from you and reached out in friendship, nation to nation, to our First Peoples. Thank you for teaching us grace.
The end of December is traditionally a time when high school seniors and their parents sit down for a serious conversation about college. As they debate the merits of various colleges, there is one question that inevitably comes up: Can we afford it?

While the fantasy surrounding Santa can be a magical experience for a child, how to deal with the consequences of explaining "how a man with infinite resources has left you with less than your peers" can become complicated and send out the wrong message about the child's worth if Santa's yearly rewards don't add up to those of their elementary counterparts.
2013 is almost done. Canadians and their political leaders will hopefully find the time to enjoy their families. Maybe they will return in a better frame of mind in the New Year, but then again do we really think that is possible?
A better day comes along, and I tell myself that it's not that I'm unwilling to commit, it's that I haven't found my career true love yet. I am unwilling to settle. I'm making progress, improving and learning with each step I take, getting stronger at understanding what I love and what I won't grit my teeth through anymore.
Here in Canada, we are a long way from the Philippines but we're part of the recovery, too. Donations from Canadians and others around the world allow us to rapidly deploy teams with relief supplies in the earliest days, and continue with recovery efforts over months and even years.
Tom Brokaw once wrote a book about the greatest generation, those brave people who survived the depression and fought in World War II. Unfortunately that great generation spawned a generation of narcissists: the baby boomers.
Exporting. Globalization. Diversification. These are big terms, and we usually associate them with big business. This overlooks one key fact: that all businesses start off as small affairs, and the same is generally true for export ventures. So, how are Canada's small exporters doing?
The employer groups that vehemently oppose CPP hikes mostly don't offer any pension support for their employees. And their arguments are increasingly hysterical. They are still calling any CPP increase a "job killer" and managed to convince the junior minister of Finance to parrot their talking points.
I thought it wise for all you conscientious party throwers out there to know about some healthier options.

The fact is that Canada may announce claims, but it's too little too late and quite beside the point. Canada is not even in the Arctic game and cannot catch up unless it invests hundreds of billions of dollars or, alternatively, joins forces with the rich and powerful United States. Here's why.
The beauty of live TV is that viewers can chatter on Internet platforms while watching, which serves to drive even more viewers to the live program.
"This is not about politics, the fast is about faith. Faith in the American people who we believe care about families being torn apart. Faith that Congress will reflect during the holidays and do the best thing for America."

What Is News,
News. What is "news," really? I believe news is a beacon of justice, illuminating the dark corners of the Earth. I believe that news is a powerful stallion of justice, galloping across this great, fragrant, fertile land. News is a dish best served warm, like revenge. Or pie. ...
If the Toronto-K-W region is ever to fully reach its potential as a technology supercluster, functioning fluidly as a single, contiguous innovation sector, the ability to move human capital between the two nodes is essential, be it employees, investors or entrepreneurs.
Food hipsters who insist that Brooklyn is the new mecca for hot new restaurants ignorantly neglect what's happening on Manhattan's Upper West Side.
Children are like snowflakes -- annoying, loud, inconvenient, smelly snowflakes. They're all annoying and loud and inconvenient and smelly in their own unique ways.
