  • ‘On the Shoulders of the Unvaccinated’

    I broke one of the cardinal rules of journalism. I read the comments.

  • Therapy from home actually worked for me

    Everyone should have the chance to go to therapy.

    Not because we’re all dealing with serious mental illnesses, but because it’s beneficial to talk out tough and negative feelings.

  • Foreigner affairs

    Recently, a very interesting video has been circulating various social-media platforms. In it, an older, seemingly wiser Steve from Blue’s Clues – the beloved television show many millennials grew up watching – gives a heartfelt speech about how proud he is of all that we, his now-adult viewers, have accomplished.

  • ‘It’s not your fault…you’re not alone’

  • Empty towers

    Working from home has its perks. Sweatpants, new pets and sleep-ins are certainly appreciated by workers. For small businesses downtown, however, the lack of office workers
    due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has been economically devastating and has accelerated some negative trends that existed prior to 2020.

  • I’ll be your trusted learning partner

    With the environmental nightmares of the summer months coupled with a year-and-ahalf- long pandemic, it’s as if we are stuck in the apocalypse. The remains of Indigenous peoples are being found at several residential school sites, the situation in Afghanistan continues to worsen, and, of course, we’re still in the thick of the COVID-19 pandemic. Shouldn’t we be coming out on the other side by now?
