Canada: National Aboriginal Dayfeaturing Ontario’s Indigenous community builders – CBC News

To celebrate National Aboriginal Day, we want to introduce you to seven of Ontario’s inspiring and innovative Indigenous community builders. These individuals stand tall against stereotypes and represent the resilience and hope of First Nations communities across the province. While they may not have the same interests and perspectives, they’re connected by a shared vision: to empower others to be proud of their past while forging a brighter future.

Yes, we did it! There was far less male bashing on this Jubilee Year Father’s Day.

But we also believe in the importance of objective analysis and reasoned argument. Over the past few months The Economist has published a series of factual briefs that examine the main issues around Brexit, covering everything from sovereignty and immigration to economics and the consequences of leaving. To help interested readers, we have now assembled all our Brexit briefs together.
