The four part, biweekly Lunch & Learn series on Human Rights and Diversity in the Workplace kicked off with a bang on February 23rd. Karen. Dr. Karen Mock, outstanding lecturer, expert in human rights and women’s issues and the Federal Liberal candidate in Thornhill.
The response to the first lunch of the series was excellent, with a diverse group of women learning new things and participating in wonderful conversation. Congratulations to the Power of Women Exchange for such a successful engagement.
Toronto roads are overcrowded already. While I can see many turning to the bicycle with the new lanes, I cannot see the number making even a small dent in the number of cars trying to navigate our city streets. So I look at placing bike lanes on Jarvis and University as additional disincentives, not so gently urging people to abandon their cars.
I remember watching the Democratic Party national convention in 2004. While Canadian and focused on the politics of my own country, I am always interested in the politics of our great neighbour to the south. Politically, I could best be described as a pragmatist, believing it unlikely that one party has the complete, correct answer.
