5 places for a comic book

While at the cabin or on the beach this summer, you can hop into stories of zombies, wizards, detectives, mutants, time-travelers – all manner of hero and villain, of complex protagonist – available through your local comic book shop (a thank you to our libraries as well, but we’re giving a nod to some small businesses here).

At a virtual press conference, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh reacts to the parliamentary budget officer’s report on an excess profits tax.

Jay and Olivia – Canadian Love Map

It’s scary to think that if you make a choice to make yourself happy it may make other people unhappy. Love is selfish. And love is selfless. This episode of the Canadian Love Map is about this balance. It’s about turning love inward and outward. You’ll meet Jay and Olivia, who will take you on a journey of discovery. About creating a unique space and helping others find their own way too.

Some say you have to learn how to love yourself before you can truly love someone else. But love is a journey. And the journey with gender isn’t about changing who you are, it’s about giving yourself space to bloom into the person you were meant to be. Read More…
