Don Cherry, Howard Stern and Spice Girls

There is always something new to be shocked about. A couple of months ago, it was Howard Stern, whose dirty-mouthed radio broadcasts were being heard for the first time in Toronto and Montreal. Lately, it’s been Don Cherry, again, this time for remarks he made during the Winter Olympics that offended many francophones (as well as everybody else).

The forum is like a graduate-school seminar with one-hour panel discussions involving high-level participants such as Nobel Prize winners Elie Wiesel and Archbishop Desmond Tutu or business big shots like Microsoft’s founder, billionaire Bill Gates.

Justice at long last

Since his election in 1995, Ontario Premier Mike Harris has ridden out a storm of criticism raised by his Conservative government’s relentless costcutting. Harris has never had to admit a mistake or back down—never, that is, until he ran up against the three surviving Dionne quintuplets.

SWEEP STAKES

Sean O'Hare is a little nervous as he stares through the windows of the Fort Simpson Curling Club at the action on the ice below. It is clear that he is trying to figure out just what exactly the people are doing with the rocks and brooms. Which is rather surprising considering that O'Hare is the club president.
