Kudos for your 1994 Honor Roll, a recognition of Canada’s most valuable resource, its people (“Achieving Excellence,” Dec. 26). The 13 individuals profiled are true role models our kids can look up to for leadership and inspiration. The youth of our country tend to identify professional athletes as heroes; perhaps these examples more accurately meet that definition.

HOOKED ON THE GAME

It is a tragic story that has become all too common. Unable to control her gambling habits, Betty Ann Schultz began stealing money from her employer.

Bold lessons from a faraway civil war

When I went to meet my husband at his Toronto office last week, I noticed that a nearby building had a banner proclaiming it “Under Occupation.” It turns out the “occupied” building houses Revenue Canada.
