INDEPENDENT MEDIA by Steve Anderson Which do you find more engaging: reading an article in a newspaper or having a conversation about it with a friend afterwards? This is the question journalists, editors and media executives should be asking themselves as they try to navigate through the current crisis in journalism. If you’re like me, you find...

NUTRISPEAK by Vesanto Melina Going vegetarian, at least one day each week, is becoming the “green” thing to do worldwide. In Israel, upscale restaurants promote “Vegetarian Mondays,” an initiative that encourages people to explore veggie options and contributes to the fight against global warming. Sir Paul McCartney has been promoting a...

The Vancouver Island Diet

The Vancouver Island Diet

Sep 24, 2009

ON THE GARDEN PATH by Carolyn Herriot I feel incredibly inspired and encouraged by all the efforts of Vancouver Islanders to increase local food security this year, yet I can’t help but think that we need a plan to move from providing five percent of the food we consume to 50 percent, the rate currently enjoyed by the rest of BC.

EARTHFUTURE by Guy Dauncey Back in June, I invited Common Groundreaders to send me their best ideas on how to tackle global warming. You responded and I will forward them to the Premier, as promised. Your responses were mostly quite achievable, if we could only organize the political support to make them a reality. You had visions of wind turbines along...

A new economic paradigm

A new economic paradigm

SCIENCE MATTERS by David Suzuki with Faisal Moola I’ve heard economists boast that their discipline is based on a fundamental human impulse: selfishness. They claim that we act first out of self-interest. I can agree, depending on how we define self. To some, ‘self’ extends beyond the individual person to include immediate family. Others might...

A right understanding of matters

WRITING ON THE WALL by Henry E. McCandless Canadian citizens accepted thousands of preventable deaths and wrecked lives from contaminated blood in the 1980s, and later the needless deaths of 26 Nova Scotia coal miners in a disgraceful mine. We tolerate wrongful imprisonments across the country and police forces inadequately managed, motivated and trained for...
