Canadians are good people… open minded, caring for their families and for one another, adventurous, edgy, fun and serious. In the barrage of polarizing politics and negative news I fear we lose track of who we are and what we aspire to.
We have more shared than competing values. Most of us want a country that works for all of us, not just those who are on a particular political party’s or media outlets’s target list.
This blog is, for me, a way to remind myself and others that we are better than our politicians and the media give us credit for. I will explore issues ranging from politics to sexuality; sports and fitness to entertainment; capitalism to environmentalism. This is the breadth of issues I think most Canadians care about, and I believe we agree on more than we sometimes are fooled into believing we do.
