Après les feux d’artifice, le temps de la réflexion

Après les feux d’artifice, le temps de la réflexion

Pour la plupart d’entre nous, la fête du Canada est synonyme de congé, de gâteau rouge et blanc ainsi que de feux d’artifice au crépuscule. Comme tout anniversaire, celui du Canada peut tourner à une autocélébration qui ne tient pas compte de l’ère dans laquelle nous sommes entrés.

Reconciliation: our challenge for Canada Day

Reconciliation: our challenge for Canada Day

For most of us, Canada Day is time off from work, a red and white cake and fireworks as the sun goes down. Like any birthday celebration, it can be a bit inward-focussed; celebrating “us” with barely a nod to the world Canada entered. This year, with the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission fresh in our minds, it’s also an opportunity to reflect on the 148-year federation, how we all fit in and who we want to become through reconciliation.

Transport Canada should have sole authority to approve new rail crossings

Transport Canada should have sole authority to approve new rail crossings

By Michael Bourque

“See Tracks, Think” is the key message of this year’s Rail Safety Week, a national week of activities devoted to educating the public about dangers associated with railway crossings. People should think “train”, “danger” or “death” when they see tracks. Most importantly, they should think about the impact that a lack of awareness around railway property can have on them, their family, the community and railway employees.

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.
