Lest We Forget   By Jack Bourassa  Lest we forget. It’s that time of the year again. People proudly wearing their red poppies close to their hearts. They give a powerful message: we’ll always remember. Remembrance Day is around the corner. I want us to bring the spirit of remembrance to our daily lives. What’s the best way to honour and remember our brave women and men? There is no one way, but I will share my thoughts and aspirations with you.

By Jack Bourassa    The government is not an alien. Elected politicians are not foreigners. No matter where they stand, they are people voted in by people. And that’s democracy. It is important to vote. It is crucial to never miss an election opportunity: Federal, Territorial, Municipal, etc. Our voices must be heard. The Federal Election is around the corner. I want to dedicate this space to ask you to go out and vote.

By Jack Bourassa A long weekend filled with picnics, good times and beautiful memories. That’s Labour Day for many of us, including myself. You might be too busy today, or you might just be taking a break— we all need some ‘me’ time. Whatever you’re doing today, let’s all take a moment and acknowledge the power of our voice and pledge to create a positive change.

By Jack Bourassa   The personal is political. This is not just a slogan. This phrase has always inspired me. I asked myself if the need for affordable housing is a personal issue for someone else— an argument often presented. The hunt for affordable housing, sadly, is a personal problem for many. And “the personal is political” as affecting change requires political will.
