Rooting for the grassroots

  It was the week before Christmas in 2009, and an air of disappointment hung over environmentalists around the world. The UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen had just ended in failure, only weeks after world leaders strode confidently into the downtown Bella Center, brimming with hope for the future of the planet.

Multitudes of microbreweries available in Montreal

amberwavesrally.com Every year as the Superbowl comes around I am painfully reminded of the cheap, watery, tin-flavored, mass-produced beer being consumed endlessly across the continent.

From James McGill’s crest to Molson stadium

During the national soul-search last week surrounding the dire question of “beaver or polar bear,” I felt left out. National symbols embody the spirit of a distinct people, and despite three glorious years now spent in Canada, I am still indubitably and irrevocably American. Thus, forgoing the right to soliloquize about Canada’s furry friends, I… Keep Reading

Geuss’s winning maxim

Last October, philosopher Raymond Geuss stood in a graveyard in Cambridge, England for a mysterious filmed interview. In an eery setting, Geuss communicated an inspired statement: knowing the historical context of what you stand for “will change your attitude toward the world and toward yourself … It will prevent you from identifying in too fanatical… Keep Reading
