Do citizens know their rights? Do they understand their duties? The increase in judicial activism, diversity in the population and the rapid changes brought on by technological innovation have many Canadians wondering about what holds Canada together and how they can act in an evolving country. In Canadian Public Culture, Gary Caldwell examines and dissects the public practices that we traditionally associate with a free and responsible citizen, the citizen who made this country the envy of the world.

Our Stories 2.0: More Eastern Townships prose, poetry, art and articles for 2019!
A fascinating and unique journey into the world beyond and a guide for everyone wanting to awaken their spiritual nature.
When Judith Avinger drove out of Bellingham, Washington, in her white Honda, on her way to a new life in Quebec, Canada, she knew, of course, that she was going to a different country, and to a province with a different language, but she also felt she was looking for something else, something elusive, something she couldn’t define. What she found was a new family, a spiritual path, a new name (Munira) and the vision of a cabin in the forest, a cabin she eventually built in the Eastern Townships of Quebec.
The Cabin is the story of how she dreamed that cabin into existence. But it’s also the story of her deep connection to the people and places she left behind and her trips back and forth between the east and the west coasts. She began writing this memoir the day she left Bellingham, recording each day’s adventures in her journal. Nearly 20 years later, it is finally finished.
Like any memoir, The Cabin isn’t just a story; it’s also a reflection on life’s journey, which brings the past and the present into focus and explores the decisions that lead to major turning points. Munira is one of today’s nomads, free to move from place to place thanks to the speed of modern transportation but often troubled by feelings of displacement. In The Cabin, the author describes her struggle to adjust to the life she has created for herself and her discovery, through her travels, writings and meditations, that she can redefine and extend her awareness of what it means to feel at home.
