Canadians are polite… until they travel during a global pandemic?

  • February 28, 2021

I’m sorry y’all but I am completely losing my patience about this all! You travelled during COVID? Even if it was for some actual need or something (you probably still shouldn’t have, no matter what! Travelling isn’t needed now at all, no matter what… you can figure out the world without travel!)… even if you did travel you have absolutely absolutely absolutely NOT earned any right to complain about mandatory quarantine. Suck it up. You’re …

Way to go Oxford County Library (+ reminder of why diversity education is still critically important)

  • February 27, 2021

One Year Ago Today

  • February 23, 2021

As we inch closer to the one-year anniversary of the pandemic’s tragic start, I am reminded of where I was standing exactly one year ago today. How fortunate that I got to explore beautiful parts of a deeply hurting (but, hopefully, repairing) country just weeks before the opportunity to travel would be stripped away.
