 Good morning all

Happy Black History Month!  Choosing our Top Story for the February 2019 edition was a contest between the annual Martin Luther King Jnr celebration and the launch of the year’s Black History Month’s celebrations, both events taking place at City Hall. We however settled for MLK, for no other reason that this civil rights icon, symbolizes the hopes and aspirations of our Black community, even as we celebrate Black History Month. But the Black History Month launch gets its own pride of place, being featured under: Social.

Our youthful editorial team members Kika Otiono, Associate Editor, and Ililli Ahmed, Youth Editor, return after a long absence with feature articles: Importance of Self-Reflection and The Genius of Noname’s Room 25, respectively. Guest columnists Andy Kusi-Appiah and Meiz Majdoub take us on a journey exploring the true intentions of China, which is increasingly investing heavily in African countries. Hockey writer Bob Dawson makes a return with his piece on NHL’s Ottawa connection. Former Ontario Attorney-General Yasir Naqvi has bounced back after his disappointing electoral loss with his appointment as CEO of the Canadian Institute of Citizenship, as reported under People Making a Difference. Religious columnist Bishop Jacob Afolabi weighs in with his piece: Fundamental problems in Faith,  while psychologist and career expert Dr. Helen Ofosu  advises readers who are feeling overqualified for the job they are currently in.

All these and more in the February edition of your favorite news magazine.

Here is the result of the January 2019 poll:

Do you feel stressed out after Christmas?

Yes  50%

Thank you to all who voted. Do participate in the February 2019 poll:

And remember to keep the letters  to the Editor coming; they help us improve your community news magazine.

Wishing you and your loved ones a healthy and productive month of February.
