PAM FRAMPTON: Garden of dreams
On fine evenings we sit on the deck and soak up the view of the garden we’ve made. The roses are in full blush and headily scented, the daylilies ready to burst into bloom. The weigela is ablaze with hundreds of blossoms like ...
GWYNNE DYER: Korea and Japan: the history wars
Nation-states, like four-year-olds, find it very hard to admit they are in the wrong and apologise. Adult intervention often helps, but all Japan and South Korea have is U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (who tried and failed to mediate a week ago ...
NICHOLAS MERCER: Remembering a moment at Shawndaithit Centennial Field

This was the time of year when we disappeared. Got on our bikes, left the house early in the morning, came back sporadically for food or water and eventually for supper, before heading out again with the standard rule that we had to come home when ...
LANA PAYNE: Farewell …
I have been writing this column for more than 20 years. It started almost as a dare. I complained to Craig Westcott, who at the time was an editor with The Telegram about the lack of newspaper column inches dedicated to workers’ issues, ...
RUSSELL WANGERSKY: Seen and not heard
Imagine a flock of starlings, settled deep into a spruce thicket and nattering away non-stop in song fragments the way they do, squawking over each other constantly. Then record that noise, crank it up from “2” to ...
