Some of these may be more to your liking than others. But I put the link forward to promote curiosity.

"When it comes to holiday food, most people probably think of turkey. But in Indigenous communities, the choices can be as diverse as the individuals who prepare them.

The last I remembered visiting Smiths Falls, my father was still alive and working if memory serves, and I was on a gig doing courtroom art for CBC News' Ottawa bureau. The space for the courtroom was rented by the provincial government and located on the second floor of a local shopping complex. If you didn't have it pointed out to you, you might never know it was there.

And, of course, Hersheys had their main Canadian plant in that town.


There's been a lot of consequences following from that infamous shutdown in 2007, some better than others with still more as yet unsure of their nature, and this report filed by Stu Mills with CBC Ottawa tells a few more of them.

Michael Enright speaks of a divide between nations, of music, of grief and joy.

Can-Con 2016 is wrapping up in Ottawa today. It's been fun, it's been a learning experience. And I should have left for home last night at least a half-hour earlier than I actually did.

Noticed a friend of mine from several writing workshops appearing on CBC News, but not for the writing work he's normally known across the country for. No, this time, he joined the ranks of the prey of the Parliament Hill Bird! Yikes!

If the video linkage doesn't work, let me know...?

This got out today:

To see the likes of Peter Mansbridge and Anna Maria Tremonti publicly sign onto a letter of protest against anything tells me something: that the situation at hand is truly an Intolerable one. Capitalization intended.

Awaiting word on what I might do in support of the pro-CBC forces...

Update 24 June 2014: Here's the actual text of the letter, and some follow-up discussion between the "CBC 40" and VP-English Services Heather Conway.

For those of you outside of Canada looking to lay hands on legal copies of the above-referenced episode of CBC Television's The Fifth Estate, a documentary on the treatment of federally-funded scientific research during the Harper Years thus far, I refer you to this website:

You might have to do a little digging to place your order, but they do have it if you're interested.
