This season’s final show — basketball champs, and champions for refugees and the hungry; deep dives into the nature of war crimes, the consequences of raising speed limits, and the tricky stick-handling of turning washrooms gender-neutral; plus weddings, jazz, comedy and…Pokémon. Yes, the world in a show!
The sad impacts of wars, the struggle for apologies for past wrongs, pushes for acceptance of autism and asexuality, responses to the dangers of fast fashion, deforestation and opioid overdoses, and lessons on growing veggies and speaking Bengali. Plus…The Slap…and lots more!
On this Midweek: worries about Ukrainian refugees with disabilities, as well as young people trying to control opioid abuse or recover from human trafficking — plus political intrigue, perogies, palm (and maple) trees, and a dig into family history to uncover a link to a famous novel and a horrible wrong. All that and loads more!
From Elden Ring to streetcar art in the GTA, K-Pop and MDMA (two different stories), the toll the pandemic has taken on nurses, the struggles against human trafficking and transphobic laws, supporting Ukraine, some vegan ways to celebrate Persian New Year, and the very real feelings of fish. All that and lots more!
Lots of stories this week on solidarity with the Ukraine through local fundraising and shows of support — and also solidarity closer to home with vulnerable neighbours still shaken by the convoy protests, and children with disabilities in need of foster homes — plus climate change, not-so-perma permafrost, a sports car club, knitting for dollars, and much, much more!
This past week brought war to Ukraine, so our Midweek covers protests against that invasion and how to cope with misinformation on it — but we also cover how to meet assaults on transgender identity, respond to hunger, help those with challenges through horse therapy, and stay sane by being silly at bad movies. All that and more!
