I am so tempted to personally send a letter to Joel North and point out the obvious, but I truly think it’s a waste of my time. In case you never heard, Joel North got himself into some social media hot water the past week or so. A Coast 101.1 radio host responded to a woman’s tweet about live streaming her video gaming skills. In response, he tweeted: “you’d get more viewers if you were stripping.” Classy guy that Joel North, ain’t he? He’s one of a kind. I don’t have to point out that he is clearly diminishing this woman and implying that her only worth and talent is of sexual nature, because it seems pretty apparent. When it…

There’s an Ambrose in town (and by town a mean a quarter of the country) So Rona Ambrose showed up in Atlantic Canada to show her support for the region and let us all know that she has our back.

Three years ago, with my cousin whom I look at as a little sister, I ran the Tely 10. She got it in her head that it was something we should do. I hadn’t given it much thought despite being fairly physically fit for most of my university career but she was adamant that it was something we could do. Truth be told, I had no desire to put the effort into training. Even more full disclosure: I didn’t want to try and do embarrassingly bad. I actually think back to three years ago as one of the last times I can truly say I was somewhat close to happy (or whatever it is we think is “happy”). At the…
