Canada's new Governor General Michaelle Jean was sworn in this week. Jean was born in Haiti, and is now a resident of Quebec.

One to remember

I thought about my mom a lot this past Sunday. And although there's nothing unusual about that, the reason I was thinking about her was out of the ordinary. This past Sunday was the Heart and Stroke Mother Daughter Walk.

Things can't make you happy

It struck me the other day just how selfish and focused on material things most of North America is.

A beautiful new hospice facility was opened to the public this week.

Last week I was off on vacation. It was the ultimate road trip that took my dad and I down the west coast of the United States. We started our trip in Seattle with a game at Safeco Field between the Mariners and my beloved New York Yankees.

This past weekend was one spent in sacred places. On Friday I visited the Sechelt Longhouse for the first time.

Teachers across the province are ready for a strike vote. This week, teachers decided to hold a vote for job action Sept. 20 to 22. It's the worst kind of news for students, who are the real losers in a situation like this.
