Happy birthday Canada

Canada, my home country, turns 147 today. This number elicits smirks from my British born coworkers. It still sounds better than the more accurate answer of 32 years since we patriated the constitution and divorced the country from the UK Parliament, making it truly independent though. Of course, that current Government of Canada seems like […]

Humanist Hustings–Europe Votes 2014

Moving to London (details eventually coming) has allowed me to attend more great events. Last night, I attended the British Humanist Association’s Humanist Hustings all-candidates forum for the upcoming European Parliamentary Elections. The event was held in Conway Hall, London’s freethought home. To my mind, no humanist group in Canada has ever hosted a similar […]

I get email – Human rights and Climate change

Recently, I wrote about a ruling against APEGA, Alberta’s professional association for engineers, by the province’s Human Rights Tribunal. Low and behold, the defendant in the case, Ladislav Mihaly, emailed me with a follow up request for help. My name is Ladislav Mihaly, and I am the Engineer who won the case Ladislav Mihaly vs. […]

Religion as a dirty word

Any headline in the form of a question can be dismissed with the simplest answer (which is also typically no). Case in point, a Victoria Times-Columnist blog asks “Has religion become a dirty word?“ It argues that Victoria, BC, with a non-religious population of 51% according to Statistics Canada’s 2011 National Household Survey and potentially […]

Canada, Ukraine, and Missing Internationalism

Stephen Harper and Canada’s Conservative government received rare praise from people in my social media circle for his quick decisions to recall Canada’s ambassador to Russia in condemnation for their occupation of The Crimea in Ukraine. Soon after, other G-8 countries agreed to similar extents and decided to revert to a G-7 membership until Russia […]

Hi Ian,

I'm not aware of any freethought groups here. That's why I go to the Unitarian Fellowship. At least I can have intelligent conversations with most of the members there.

I'm trying to get a committee together to plan events in celebration of Darwin's 200th birthday next year. If you have any friends in Regina that would be interested in getting involved, send them my way.

By the way, your profile says that you're female. You might want to fix that.

I just joined Atheist Nexus today. I likely won't be blogging here too much, if ever, as I maintain my own blog and will be contributing to another.

So check out my other blogs:
