It has been dubbed Canada's - indeed, North America's - fastest growing hobby. And no, I'm not talking about Scrabble, gardening, or Twitching which, to the uninitiated, simply means bird watching. But rather Genealogy,

PHOTO COURTESY CASCA My name is Briana and I was born September 9, 2015. I'm a grey short-haired tabby who was found half-frozen and half-starved on the street in the cold winter. My ears suffered a bit of frostbite and the whole experience was traumatizing for me. My foster parents love me and take good care of me. I respond by sitting in their lap and purring to show my appreciation. Sometimes, if you pet me too much, I become annoyed and will look for a quieter place to be

PHOTO COURTESY PEXELS I can tell you what I was wearing six years ago at a job interview or what the weather was like on the day I adopted my last dog but I have trouble remembering what I had for dinner last night. And though I take constant steps to mitigate my short-term memory loss, which grows ever worse as I get older, I often don’t remember what the memory prompts stand for. “Why did I write an ‘M’ on my left hand?” I asked the publisher the other day, stymied as I sta
Doubtful on hospital Dear Editor, After reading the article in The Journal (March 8, page 3) about the long-awaited hospital in Vaudreuil-Soulanges, I was amazed with the stalling from Minister Lucie Charlebois. The explanation about the three stages was so precise to let us believe that we will be stuck on this ‘stage one’ for an indeterminate period of time since nothing is moving. Apparently, the purchase of the land is done but other than a sign stating the future site of
Open letter to Finance Minister Carlos Leitão A meeting held March 8 at McGill University, organized specifically for Quebec's Finance Minister to hear what the Anglophone community wants to see in the Quebec budget, was widely reported.
