Unpaid Caregiving Across Cultures in Canada  | Nancy Wanye

Unpaid caregivers are the backbone of many healthcare systems across Canada. Who are they exactly? They are men and women who provide home care services to family members and friends in need of care without financial compensation. Care services could include assistance with transportation, meal preparation and clean-up, house cleaning and maintenance, laundry, personal care, and managing finances.

Sea Buckthorn Jam | Adeline Panamaroff  

Sea buckthorn bushes have a growing tolerance for cold and dry areas. This has allowed them to thrive in zone 3 growing regions. In Edmonton, the bushes have been planted along train lines and in green spaces as a landscape plant. Its long thorny twigs and closely bunched berries can make gathering these fruits a “sharp” business. I have found positioning my collection container right under a group of berries with one hand and rolling the fruit off the stem with the other hand works well, even if this means crushed berries.

Happy Thanksgiving | Lorrie Morales

Gratitude is an attitude, and so after almost two years of lockdowns and isolation, people are ready to get back to that healthy lifestyle of celebrations, connecting with others and hope for the future.  There are so many reasons to be thankful in our world today. Despite the wars, floods and food shortages and rising costs of gas, goods and groceries, there is always reason to choose our attitude along life’s journey.

What Happens If I Make a Mistake in Life | Yoleen Naidoo

For you to live this valuable life, you must believe in yourself. Accept that you can make bad decisions.  Accept that you get another chance.  Accept that you will do better next time and if not, you will be given another chance.  Work hard in life and grow.  Never forget we live in a world of GRACE which means we get another chance. Grace gives us the chance to start again without a past.  Leave the past, let it go, forgive yourself and move on.

Women and Climate Justice | Monica Bassilli

Taking care of our communities is essential – it cannot always be delegated to the government. With time, local movements and organizations can change how we view our neighbours and work to support one another. Considering the increased climate disasters in Western Canada from wildfires and drought, Albertans will not be immune to climate disasters. Thus, being well-prepared and conscious of the community you live in is vital to staying healthy and safe.

As a gift to you today and as a little help on your journey for strengthening your mind I have created a free app. to help you. 

The first thing you should do in the morning is to affirm your day.  The reason we affirm our day is to remind ourselves who we truly are.  At least repeat the affirmation minimum of 30 times each time 4 times a day.

Bill S-204: Why You Should Care

Racialized Senators and Members of Parliament should not be the only ones concerned with exploiting racialized peoples across the globe. With this in mind, there is a greater need to accept the colonial and imperial consequences of the past century and reflect on its influence on today’s migration patterns. Unfortunately, the typical response is to assume that people from impoverished nations are incapable and incompetent, leading to less attention from Western countries like Canada.

If we ignore the effects of poverty, racism, and sexual exploitation worldwide, there is a slight chance that laws such as Bill S-204 will pass. With this in mind, it is valuable to send a message to your members of Parliament and encourage them to voice their support for Bill S-204.

Les Femmes et la Francophonie Albertaine

Quand j’ai habité à Vancouver, ça semblait qu’il y avait plus d’opportunités francophones. Une raison importante est la connexion avec les immigrants francophones et les peuples Indigènes. Les deux groupes ont un problème systémique ainsi que la colonisation qui se transmet autour du monde. Donc, l’anglais et le français sont les langues primaires selon les immigrants et peuples Indigènes.
