Dogmatic docs

Your story Quest for a Cure (Cover, April 20) revives my frustration with traditional medicine. Several years ago I had to go “underground” to find sensible answers to the health problems of my family. I have become a responsible health consumer who, as a result, would no more take Valium for depression than blame my misinformed doctor for prescribing it.

End of term and ‘end of route’

For much of the year, Hay’s Brook is a mere trickle that winds and burbles through wooded farm country just south of Woodstock, N.B. In springtime, however, rain and melting snow turn the stream into a miniature torrent and a spectacular 30metre cascade down the face of a sheer rock ledge.

Space shuttling to TV’s tomorrowland

With the admonition for applicants to be “as imaginative and innovative as possible,” John Meisel last week ushered Canadian television to the doorstep of the 21st century.

Life in a valley of death?

It hangs like an omen of disaster, a 450-metre cliff face formed from an ancient lava flow, threatening to break loose and engulf the village of Garibaldi in an avalanche of rocks and water from a nearby dam. That’s how the provincial government sees the danger to the small village 80 km north of Vancouver.

Loaves and fishes, furs and taxes

As political volubility goes, it was first-rate. Jim Morgan, Newfoundland’s minister of fisheries, raised the roof last week—an impulse he is not known to stifle—and drew so much attention to his problem that federal Revenue Minister Bill Rompkey dropped in for a visit Friday from Ottawa.
