Small town editor to cycle from Toronto to Ottawa for global warming petition

CLEARWATER, BC: “My special interest in climate change began several years ago when the child of a family member cried himself to sleep after watching a television documentary on the subject. Will you sign my petition to help fight climate change in Canada?”

That’s how an online petition starts out that has been posted on Care2 by Keith McNeill, the editor of the award-winning Clearwater-North Thompson Times in Clearwater, British Columbia. The petition calls for a Canada-wide referendum on carbon fee-and-dividend.

Farmer Highlights Benefits of the Back to Ag Program

Farmer Highlights Benefits of the Back to Ag Program

The Back to Ag program was envisioned to help farmers get back to the work they love – farming. André Veilleux, a maple syrup producer from Quebec, is doing just that thanks to his new stand-up wheelchair.

On March 1, 2008, André’s life drastically changed when a maple tree he was felling crushed him, severing his spinal cord, fracturing six vertebrae and resulting in paraplegia. André would never walk again.

Helping Caregivers to Deal with Stress

Helping Caregivers to Deal with Stress

There’s helpful news for family caregivers. Two new free tools designed to help them better understand their role and deal with the stress that can accompany it are now available.

“It’s important for caregivers to understand that stress can impact one’s ability to care. If they don’t care for themselves, they may put their senior loved ones at risk.”

- Jeff Huber, President

A family caregiver is anyone who plays a role in an older loved one’s care – a role that can be challenging. In Canada there are more than 2 million informal caregivers – family and friends who provide critical support for senior loved ones who are still living at home.
