“This is how Denise could be today”: a new appeal from her mother Piera Maggio

MAZARA DEL VALLO (Trapani) – Tomorrow, Tuesday 26 October, Denise Pipitone would turn 21. She would, because no one knows what happened to that little girl who disappeared on 1 September 2004 from Mazara del Vallo, a town in the province of Trapani, in Sicily. Since then, investigations, trials, appeals, searches, all without the desired results: to find Denise or, at least, to know the truth about what happened that day in the small Sicilian village where everyone knows each other.

Rogers, “poisonous relations”: the family feud continues

TORONTO – “Fratelli coltelli”. Or, if you prefer, “Parenti serpenti”. These are the titles of two Italian comedies of the 90s that are well suited to the squalid show that the members of the Rogers family, owners of the homonymous telecommunications giant, are giving, publicly. In English we could translate those titles like “Dearest Relatives, Poisonous Relations”, to say that in the Rogers family there is a real feud that has also ended up on social media, in particular on Twitter where Martha Rogers, director of Rogers Communications, asked her brother Edward to “resign”. But let’s take a step back. (more…)

It will be easier for immigrants to work in their professions

Fabricated issues designed to distract

If this comes across as “political”, rest assured it is not my intention to be or appear to be partisan. Some things are so blatantly absurd that even the least educated among us ought to see the point. Our paper is in the business of reporting news, providing a modicum of objective analysis and commenting on matters of general interest. Occasionally, we will indulge in opinion pieces focusing on “personalities who are in the public limelight” because they have a publicly mandated role, which affords them merit or criticism based on how they discharge their obligations to the public.  (more…)

School, Minister Elliott: “Our weapon is vaccines”

TORONTO – Hope, to eradicate Covid-19 among children, is placed in the vaccine.

A spokesperson from the Ministry of Health (MOH) told the Corriere that, “payments will flow to optometrists across Ontario on October 15”.
