Let's not let Canada be bullied into a bad deal by the blustering fool on the other side of the 49th parallel. If you can donate to stop this deal, please do.

This isn't really surprising, and it does fly in the face of stereotypes.
Violence in the US is largely committed by white men who believe they are entitled to rule over others. The people with the most guns are not the poorest but rather middle class or wealthier people who believe they are entitled to the labor, attention, affection, space, & or bodies of others. Thugs, basically.

"Overall, white Americans who live in predominantly white and Trump-voting counties are 50% more likely to die from murder, gun violence and drug overdoses than whites who live in the most diverse and Democratic-voting counties. The more white and Republican a county is, the greater the risk for white Americans."

While plastics definitely have their uses, wasteful ones like fast-food packaging need to be addressed. Our oceans are filling up.

I can't imagine having to make these kinds of choices. I've never met James, but he's extended family, and this pic of his babies is enough to convince me to help out. Hope you can too.

BC's commercial salmon farms continue their disgusting, horrific, dangerous actions in the oceans off our coastline. Fisheries and Oceans Canada needs to step in immediately before our wild salmon stocks are devastated.

Jewel has some of the best food stories and generally awesome recipes. This is a nice twist on a favourite around our home: the spaghetti squash "pasta" dinner. All these roasted foods sound awesome....

I'm so embarrassed to be a white man in Canada. This is beyond ridiculous.

This is how you handle ignorant bigots... "threaten" them by welcoming them, loving them, and supporting them. Jagmeet Singh is showing incredible patience and tolerance here... It's pretty incredible to watch.

That's so strange...I don't remember GOP members asking Ken Starr to cut short his (failed) investigation of Whitewater (which went WAY beyond its purpose). That investigation lasted well over four years NOT including the time Robert B. Fiske spent even before Starr came onboard.
