El tiempo es caballero, como se suele decir.
La máquina de mudslinging – lamentablemente hiperactivo en redes sociales y círculos políticos – que apuntó al Corriere Canadese en los últimos meses ha comenzado a perder simpatía por la calle. (more…)
TORONTO – The silent majority would seem to no longer wish to stay silent. On May 21, 2021, the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC) rendered a unanimous decision reaffirming the Constitutional rights of voluntary religious organizations to be free from the interference of the state on matters of doctrine and dogma.

You may have noticed that schools are closed. Children (that is the legal definition for people under the age of 18) are “studying remotely”, if at all. Distance learning is all the rage. Contagion, vaccination, “herd immunity” have displaced math, science, technical know-how, development of social skills, and critical thinking. (more…)
TORONTO – Whatever one might hazard to say about Israel… it would be wrong, the moment a “shot” is fired. There have been many “shots” fired in the last week. In fact, as of May 19, the overall death toll in Gaza stood at 197 people, including 58 children and 34 women, with 1,235 injured and about 70,000 displaced. (more…)
Caso contrário, você não pode entrar.
A organização da partida, em particular, é fundamental porque tudo se joga em questão de dias. (more…)
How odd. Thanks to the nonsensical, even inane musings (but they are done with passion) of trustees in Catholic school boards, the real Human drama of life is taking place within the Catholic Church. It’s the stuff of movies. The moral and legal authority of Canada’s premier prelate, the one eligible to be Pope or vote for the next one, is being publicly challenged. (more…)
A maior parte da loja estava devidamente sinalizada e encerrada, incluindo o expositor de cartões.
Apesar disso, peguei nos cartões e tratei de fazer o pagamento. (more…)
Mi sono fermato in un Dollar Store per ritirare due carte d’auguri: una, per compleanno, l’altra, per la Festa della Mamma, entrambe per la stessa persona. La maggior parte del negozio è stata sessata doverosamente, anche il porta-carte. Ho preso comunque le due carte e ho continuato a pagare. (more…)
I stopped in a Dollar Store to pick up two cards: one, a birthday, the other, a Mothers’ day – both for the same person. Most of the store was dutifully sectioned off, even the card rack. I picked up the two cards anyway and proceeded to pay.
The self-serve kiosk would not accept the birthday card purchase. The young lady assistant who came to my aid, said “I’m sorry sir, the rules don’t allow us to sell any cards except these. You cannot buy and I cannot sell the other.” The card was worth $1.13, tax included. (more…)
It was a Shakespearean “et tu Brute” moment. Catholic Archbishop Cardinal’s “guidance” on issues of religion and faith suffered an utter defeat. In the wee hours of Friday morning, the very school board trustees who swore an oath to uphold his [the magisterium’s] teachings in Catholic schools thumbed their noses at him, and by extension at all those who support the Church.

No, this is not another article on “case counts”. If History is any guide, when Adversity takes lives and property, leaders emerge to keep everyone focused on values that brought us where we are (moral fibre). The end goal (moral compass) guides thought, clarifies principles and speaks to what those “end goals” might be. (more…)
It is frankly of little concern to me personally how, if or on what Bishop Crosby’s views differ from the Vatican’s official views on Catholicism. He does not return phone calls or respond to email questions from press like ours. We are a secular newspaper. (more…)
