Freedom to Read Week February 24 - March 2

We cannot take anything we have for granted including the freedom to read. Canada is a free country by world standards yet books and magazines are banned at the border. Libraries and schools are regularly asked to remove books.

Who asks for books to be banned?  Those who get organized, who are offended by some materials. But are they the books you would like to see banned?

I know there are some things I would like to see banned but they are not books. This is where freedom of information and conversation helps us become informed citizens engaged in creating a better world.

The Magnificent (a poem for Colten Boushie) by Lesley Strutt

I would like to dedicate this poem to Colten and all those who are grieving for him, who feel lost, frightened, unheard, unseen, excluded...
