  It happens every four years... sometimesPDF files may take a moment to load

It's an eclipse, it's the Olympics, it's a leap year... no, it's a federal election! OK, so it's only been three and a half years since the last one in 1997 but Big Daddy J.C. dropped the writ this past Sunday and there is no turning back now.

Re: "Islam in the media," Oct. 19, 2000

I believe I can offer a different perspective on the issue of Islam and the media. I am Canadian, of English, Scottish and Polish ancestry. I was born in Canada and grew up here in a typically Canadian fashion. Yet I am also a Muslim, as I chose to embrace Islam a little less than three years ago.
