Victoria is not “dumping” the Macdonald statue. More importantly, they got re-elected after the actions they took regarding the residential schools. It is not these elected officials who should be blamed for these national sins, but the citizenry of Canada. Take other actions to hold the Canadian body politic accountable for these past sins.

The new CBC documentary Gander's Ripple Effect explores how feeding, clothing and caring for stranded air passengers led to lifelong friendships and the creation of the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Come From Away.

For years, Rubinoff had been trying to convince writers and producers that there was a play, maybe even a musical, in Gander's 9/11 story. Not only is Come From Away a largely Canadian story, it was written by Broadway newbies and lacks well-known stars.
