Column: Tobogganing can be dangerous fun
All three of those incidents could have resulted in serious, life-altering injury. While it never crossed my parents’ minds to sue the city when I broke my collar bone, I don’t know they would have felt the same way if I had broken my neck.

Column: Feeling at home thanks to Stan Rogers' music
They played with such skill, love and reverence for the music without treating it as a sacred artifact. It was alive to them and they made each song their own without dimming the essential truth of the piece. They were not Rogers, but they weren’t trying to be. They just wanted to share that music with the audience and have the audience become part of the music.

Column: How I would have come to love Canada's "new" flag
Given how popular and well-loved the red maple leaf is, it can be hard to imagine that anyone could ever have disliked it, let alone opposed it. However, had I been alive at the time I might just have been one of them.

Column: These great youths do Hamilton proud
Last Saturday night I met a remarkable young woman by the name of Jasmine Francis. She’s a Bishop Ryan grad who’s in the first year of a psychology degree that she hopes will lead her into practice working with teens and youths. She was a four-year honours student, on the school’s indoor and outdoor track and field team, the dance team, the step squad, the cheerleading team, the soccer team, and worked with the breakfast club, yearbook club, athletic committee and graduation committee. Oh yeah, and she’s also a musician, having spent nine years with the Hamilton Youth Steel Orchestra.

Column: In spite of protests, democracy worked in bus lane cancellation
Much to the chagrin of the 150-or-so bus lane advocates in attendance at the Jan. 21 city council meeting, Hamilton’s municipal reps decided to put an end to the King Street project. The controversial transit-only lane seemingly divided Hamiltonians between those who saw it as a way to encourage more people to take transit by making riding the bus more convenient and those saw it as an impediment to efficient traffic flow. What struck me in the aftermath of the decision was not that the transit advocates were upset (no one likes to see something they believe in come to naught), but rather almost histrionic attack on the process.
COMMUNITY COLUMNIST: Increase voter turnout with combined vote
We have a great opportunity in 2018 that we need to seize to save millions of dollars and increase voter turnout.

These were the voices of those who had been silenced, and yet their songs, the same songs that rang out amidst the oppression, the hate and the genocide, were not silenced.
