Words and voices from Canada at the Vancouver Art Gallery yesterday standing with the people of Ukraine and for an end to the agony of this senseless war as we continue with broken hearts to mourn the women, men and children who are being so cruelly killed each day by a heartless and demented war criminal who must one day be held to account.

May the fourth be with you.

a little good news


 
Some good news yesterday that four of the children separated from their parents at the US border in 2017, one of whom was only three, will be reunited with their parents this week. Sadly the parents of far too many have yet to be located.

National Physicians Day


 
Four special moments from the Pacific Spirit Park, Vancouver today on our National Physicians Day here in Canada, a day for me to say thank you to all of my amazing colleagues who have worked so hard this past difficult year together with all of our frontline heroes. I am in awe of them all.

Canada Remembers


 
The sun broke through on our walk this morning in the Pacific Spirit Park illuminating these beautiful young maple leaves as we remember Sub.Lt. Abbigail Cowbrough and her five co-Canadian Armed Forces crew members, Sub-Lieutenant Matthew Pyke, Master Corporal Matthew Cousins, Captain Maxime Miron-Morin, Captain Kevin Hagen and Captain Brenden Ian MacDonald, all lost when their helicopter came down in the Ionian sea a year ago today.
 

 
Only eleven days previously Sub.Lt. Cowborough had been playing Amazing Graze on the deck of their ship HMCS Fredericton to honor all those murdered in the mass shooting in her home Province of Nova Scotia.

best moment of any day


 

The best moment of any day is when I am able to read to our beautiful grandchildren.
 

 

Happy World Book Day
