The story of cannabis is not over

In 2018, seventeen years after granting legal access to medical cannabis, Canada legalized its recreational use. Many people thought that this would be the end of the story. But it was only the end of the second chapter. The rest of the book on Canada’s cannabis legalization is still being written.
Regardless of cannabis being legal the stigma of 100 years of prohibition and propaganda is still very present.

Will integrating work-related and community development projects with academia, become the next gateway for student learning?

….It’s been a month now since Michael (Paul) Kent passed away in the bus shelter situated just under my 3rd floor bedroom window.
I first noticed Paul back in early May but thought nothing much of it at the time as I’d seen many homeless people rest in bus shelters as they wandered the streets… little did I realize that he had actually started to live in it. This is the time we were starting to live with Covid being around..
