Vancouver, this morning. That's the Sun, through the smoke so thick you can stare at it. And where there's smoke...

Nicole: Smoke, not smog.
Richard: Word it that most of this smoke is from the 3 fires near Pemberton.

I am delighted to see Canada's 2 astronauts are getting assigned to spaceflight!

Immensely competent and hard-working, I wonder which spaceship David and Jeremy will fly - Soyuz, Dragon or Boeing's CST?

Just beyond these tall buildings a superb pilot saved an entire plane full of passengers.

Captain Sullenberger has my eternal respect. No drone pilot, he.

That's no moon, it's a -- oh, wait, it is a moon. But you can see how I was confused by the TIE fighter.

Great day for an airshow! If you’re near Ottawa, Snowbirds and a CF-18 will be flying in Gatineau.

I’m taking a moment to recognize the work of my son, Evan, who has been helping to manage things so well these past two years. He convinced me to do Oddity (and then made it), created our Webby-winning website, and devised the strategies behind all the social media impact.

He has recently begun a digital agency called launch*pad (http://lpad.ca), to help socially-conscious Canadian businesses greet the world.

I’m excited! Not just for where the endeavour will take him and what he’ll learn, but also for what he will do for others. Good work, Evan!
launch*pad is a Toronto based advertising boutique offering creative, strategic, branding, digital and traditional-channel solutions. To boldly go where no brand has gone before please contact Evan Hadfield at evan.hadfield@LPAD.ca or Alex Shifrin at alex.shifrin@LPAD.ca.

I contacted Memofix to help repair a hard drive that had stopped working at the recommendation of friends. After having worked with them, I would be happy to recommend the same for my own. I spoke with Bob Giannoulis, who offered in-depth knowledge, a pleasant attitude, and a sincerity that can’t be faked. He was able to quickly assess and explain the problem simply, providing a step by step process to solve the issue. The payment process was smooth and my new HD works great. The level of customer service was beyond expectation, and they’ll certainly get my business for any future HD needs.
