Christmas Letter 2017

December 25, 2017
Dear Friends & Family,

Here we are once more at the holiday season, looking back on a very wild year (both for me personally and for the world at large). The yard is lit, the tree is up and decorated, and the gifts are bought and wrapped. It is Christmas Eve and the house smells of all the traditional Christmas baking. It is time to relax and enjoy some time off.

For me this has been a year of obstacles, all of which have been overcome. It started with a month long snowstorm - which for most pe...

The Other Side Of The Story

July 31, 2017
In the local newspaper today there was an article by a prominent local lawyer detailing his experiences in sitting with a client and friend of his who was in hospital dying. In this article he described the kindness and compassion of the emergency room staff who he dealt with, and how caring they were for both the dying patient and for him as a witness to the final moments of his friend's life. He paints a very rosy picture of hospital staff.

Happy 150th Anniversary Canada!

In 1867 a group of visionaries got together and united a diverse collection of British colonies into a single country. The new nation was connected by a single railway, and little else. It was a country of Irish immigrants on the east coast, an entire province of French immigrants and cities that feel more European than anything one would expect in North America, prairie provinces with entire communities of Scottish, Ukrainian, and Romanian settlers who kept the...
