More than just a garden

A movement is growing nationwide. Where does our food come from? What are the healthiest options for ourselves and the environment? Many are returning to the basics of backyard gardening.

People of all gardening abilities are invited to learn and share knowledge.

Do your part: vote

Editor:

Went to political meeting the other night and listened to the candidate and some very good issues were discussed. At the end of the meeting we were encouraged to help others see the need to vote. Apparently we get a 40ish% turnout, not good for a country as great as Canada. We live in one of the best if not the best country in the world, and I firmly believe that working together we can make it better.

Ignorance isn’t always bliss

Graduating from high school my girlfriend didn’t know who Ronald Reagan was. This was weird because he was the president of the United States at the time and near the end of his first term. Shocked, I asked her how it was possible she didn’t know this. Shrugging, she replied, “I don’t like the news, it makes me depressed.”

Catching up to Europe
