Inside the Watergate hearings

While there is no evidence, at this writing, that President Richard Nixon had prior knowledge of the Watergate break-in, there is a good lot of evidence that he was aware of the coverup. During three and a half months as an investigator for the Senate Select Committee on Presidential Campaign Activities (the Ervin Watergate committee), I examined reams of evidence indicating that the President knew, or should have known, what was going on.

Embracing the mentally wounded

Late in the summer of 1964, beneath skies much given to greyness at Trosly-Breuil, a very small town in northern France, Jean Vanier, son of then Governor General George Vanier, moved into an old, deserted stone house named L’Arche, with two mentally handicapped men, to create a home.

After reading Hugh MacLennan’s Scotland’s fate, Canada’s lesson (October), it is abundantly clear that there are insufficient numbers of Canadians who have the backbone to say, “I love this country and it will remain mine.” Canadians suffer from an inferiority complex which our leaders haven’t the courage to overcome.
