How To Live Next Door To America Without Getting Burned

What has already entered history as “the Denver speech” clarified some things for us all. It gave lucid expression to what had hitherto been only a latent popular emotion. It signaled that Canadians had stopped asking whether the American sickness was contagious and now were discussing ways to immunize themselves against it.

MEL PROFIT’S moustache droops in a Fu Manchu curve. His blond hair, despite a token mid-summer trim, still flows to a luxurious length. And he wears long, billowing, hooded caftans and dashikis, the kind of clothes that he stocks in First Asylum, the boutique he owns and runs in midtown Toronto.

How much poison in a ‘safe’ fish? It’s no use asking Ottawa

One thing about mercury is that it is highly toxic: it can cause tremors, numbness, blurred vision, deafness, diarrhea and, sometimes, death. It can also cause mental instability, and the expression, “mad as a hatter” comes from the fact that many workers in the hat industry, where mercury was once used extensively, went insane from inhaling its vapors.

WHAT CANADIANS REALLY FEEL ABOUT LOVE, VIOLENCE AND THE FAMILY

True, most of us don’t beat our wives or belt our children. Guns bother us. So does the sight of blood. We’re a peace-loving society. Or are we? The second Maclean’s-Goldfarb Report digs deeply into the raw emotions that shape our social attitudes-and discovers... We're More Violent Than We Think

THE CELL MEASURES a good seven feet by five. It is for two persons, a second bunk piled on top of the first. A space of seven feet by five isn’t much for two men, especially if it has two bunks, a lavatory, two foot-wide planks fixed to the wall, one to serve as table, the other as seat.

Canada’s publishers are in a lot of trouble: It’s sell—or sell out

BOOK PUBLISHING, says Jack McClelland, Canada’s bestknown book publisher, is “the easiest commercial business to get into. It requires no qualifications and no training. All it requires is $5,000 and a manuscript. But that isn’t the trick — the trick is to stay in the business once you’ve got there.”

What this country needs is a good 10-cent packet of purple pod beans

ONE BRIGHT night in May, walking along a derelict CNR track through the Forest Hill district of Toronto, I felt quite sure that I would never have a house. There are some big ones in there, but what I was looking at were their gardens, shadowy behind a ragged screen of lilac and Chinese elm, and what provoked my self-pity was the thought that I really had nowhere to plant my vegetables.

SOME CRASS sportswriter once said that watching sailboats race was only a little less thrilling than watching grass grow, and he had a point. As a spectator sport, yacht racing probably ranks a notch above chess and a notch below tether tennis; and this is one reason why, when a Canadian scores an extraordinary triumph in this fiendishly competitive international sport, most of us never even hear about it.

Don’t say Canada can’t poroduce good television: look at our commercials

THERE’S A SENSE in which Canada’s supposedly moribund television production industry is very much alive, gloriously healthy and ready to take on the three corners of the broadcasting world in arms. Unfortunately, this professional confidence is confined to that area of television the average viewer likes least, the 12 minutes out of every hour when the public airwaves ripple and thunder across the country with commercial messages.
