Column: Tim Hortons Field still flawed, but will be great
For the last year or so you’ve been reading in our pages all about the gong show that has been the construction of the new Tim Hortons Field. We’ve been very critical of not only the delays in the construction process, but how fans were seemingly deliberately mislead about the stadium’s progress. We’ve said time and time again how the city and Tiger-Cat fans deserve better. However, for all problems that beset it, a stadium exists and is (mostly) functional enough to have hosted seven games and seven Ticat victories.

Column: Living la dolce vita during Italian getaway
After three years of planning my wife, Susan, and I embarked upon our month-long dream Italian getaway. We had been to Italy three years ago and fallen in love with the country; its art, food, culture and way of life. We have embraced Italy so much that we have contemplated joining the Venetian Club of Hamilton and changing our name from Coe to CoChelli.

Column: Getting to know my great-grandfather
I never met my great-grandfather John Reid. In fact, I’m not even sure that I’d ever met anyone who knew him. Like 67,000 other Canadians, he died in the Great War. He left behind a wife and kids, including my maternal grandmother, but almost no stories of his life were passed down to my generation.

Column: Canadian values hold strong in the face of attack
Amidst all the concern and confusion surrounding both attacks, the country kept its head. There were no calls for police-state security measures. There was no reactionary backlash against the Muslim community. On the contrary, we reacted in a very Canadian style. We celebrated the lives of those taken too soon, and moved forward, unchastened and unbowed by those deplorable acts.
