As Ontario budget consultations wrapped up Feb. 8, Liz Stuart questioned how much of a conversation really took place.

For 60 years, David and Jeannette Brown have made beautiful music together.

Canadian Physicians for Life is mobilizing its members for a grassroots appeal to politicians to protect doctors who do not wish to participate in any way in the assisted suicide of patients.

Stan Surman has officially been retired for more than 20 years, but not when it comes to his work at church.
