Good morning all
Hope you all had a good Halloween, goblins and all! Speaking of which reminds me that fall is really here and Christmas is just round the corner! How time flies!
Our offering for the month of November begins with our Top Story featuring St. Lucians, under the leadership of the indefatigable Toni Francis, as they celebrated the 2017 Jounen Kweyol, a unique and fascinating part of the Caribbean island’s culture. We also begin an exciting new series featuring Ottawa lawyer and activist Patricia Harewood, who describes her experience raising her baby twins, based on a social justice model of parenting. Famed Sudanese singer Emmanuel Kembe was in Ottawa to promote a fundraiser for South Sudan and we are pleased to bring you this incredible entertainer in this edition. Sad news indeed in our Obituary, as we announce the passing of Rachel Exeter, former president of the National Council of Guyanese in Ottawa. Under People Making a Difference, we feature one of Ottawa’s favourite couples, Bashiru and Abiola Agoro who recently received the prestigious Orléans Leaders’ Sesquicentennial award. Feature writer MacAndrew Clarke takes on the recently enacted Quebec law banning face coverings, while our Religion columnist Bishop Afolabi writes about the Power of Forgiveness. In our Interview, Cityline host Tracy Moore speaks candidly about the English teacher who changed her life during her high school years. Finance expert Meiz Majdoub shines a new light on the need for critical illness insurance, under Managing Your Money.
All these and more in the November, 2017 edition. Enjoy!
