Perhaps a silver lining, Our pipe(line) dreams, The dawn of a new day

Last week I explored the notion that the pain and longing associated with the pandemic, for many, may be temporary, hopefully serving, one day, as nothing more than an unpleasant memory.

A lot of companies, especially technology companies, want people to burn through their gadgets, their computers and even their vehicles (and yes, with the number of chips, computers and displays, I now consider...

Sometimes I think about 25 per cent of a politician's job could be accomplished by a figure in a business suit stuffed with straw, hanging from a rope with a baseball bat easily available...

In June of 2007, a letter arrived for me in Pickering, though I had already moved to Huron County. "I hope this has offered insight into your past, because to forget the past is to forget where we have come from...

While I expected to start off 2021 in a way different than every other year, I don't think anything I could've done would have prepared me for exactly how different it has been thanks to the ongoing lockdown and online learning.

While millions of Canadians fret that COVID-19 restrictions are limiting their creating a memorable Christmas, I'm willing to bet that 20 years from now, people will talk more about Christmas 2020 than either Christmas 2019 or 2021.
