1 in 5 Canadian youths not sure what happened in the Holocaust, survey suggests

One in five young people in Canada either hasn’t heard of the Holocaust or isn’t sure what it is.

WILKINSON: Canada can’t provide for the migrant crisis while Canadians are faced with financial insecurity

Canada’s Food Guide plant-based diet is, for the most part, elitist. Many of us can’t indulge because of a lack of access, affordability or convenience.

The report fails to recognize the human nature of society – and there’s nothing more human than food. Culinary traditions have influenced nations, clans and families for thousands of years. Food is intrinsically powerful – it can bring us together through meals and celebrations, or it can tear us apart through embargoes on foodstuffs. It’s a precious construct influenced by organizations, money, policies and all citizens of the world.
