There is absolutely no need for anyone in Canada to oppose the nomination of Mary Simon as Governor General, with her “First Peoples” identity. She is clearly committed to learning French. More tellingly, the Inuit never imposed their language on the colonizers whose “residential schools” imposed foreign cultures, languages ​​and spirituality on the Inuit.

Yes, it is time that we make every effort to achieve reconciliation with our Inuit, such as full respect for the historic first appointment of a credible and respected Inuk woman as Governor General in Canada.

It is our significant actions of reconciliation with our First Peoples such as the historic appointment of Mary Simon that will contribute to our full Canadian identity.

This week my daughter took two five year olds to the Canadian Museum of Nature. (It sounded like fun – sort of, but not really.) Anyway, when she told me how much « fun » was, I said « Oh come on, that’s not is not possible, » so she sent me a picture of all three of the tickets. She also said the cost was higher due to an exhibit on the fourth floor, to which I said, « That’s what museums are – exhibits. »

Several times a year, every year, we talk about affordable housing.

Summer is here, not for the year but by September. Regardless of the “exhibition”, the cost of admission to the Museum of Nature for two children and one adult at $20, $20, and $27 is not what I would call affordable.

If my mother were alive today, she would have had to choose between a trip to the grocery store or a trip to the museum, and I’d bet dollars on donuts that many mothers today are in her place. Frankly, it brings tears to my eyes because mothers will have no choice but to choose the grocery store.

Summer is too short. Museums should be affordable, not priced, so they are not.

To all of you in a hurry and annoyed by airport queues, lost luggage and your poor pet who had to spend the night in its crate, know that these are the least of your worries. If they can’t take care of your luggage, aren’t you worried that they’ll service the plane, check the wheels for falling off, do engine checks and maintenance – there’s a lot to check on an airplane that flies with hundreds of people on board.

If they can’t keep track of your luggage, how do they know something bad isn’t in the luggage? What happens inside the airport is nothing compared to what happens or doesn’t happen on the runway. Is safety a priority?



(Some say the riskiest parts of air travel are the car journeys to and from the airport.)


The very principle of the army is discipline, for so many different reasons. Without discipline, there is no control and this increases the risk of disaster. But looking at today’s military, it seems that control has already been lost from the top down.
