A quick update
First, this column about integrating learning into religious practice came out in the Jewish Post & News:
Jewish Learning: Just Do It!
Second, I submitted this piece to the CBC on Thursday and it went live this weekend! In short, "When the system fails us" looks at how regular Manitobans have to rely on the media for advocacy, publicity and redress when the provincial government systems fail them. It seems like a broken system.
For those reading this outside of our province, it's an interesting way to view how things work here. In the US, I often found that one could appeal a decision by speaking to a manager or a higher government official...and only rarely did it feel like an individual had to go to the media to fix things or right a wrong. Here, the population is smaller but it seems like the media ends up being involved in advocacy a lot more often.
When the system fails us
Also--it's snowing today! Spring does come late here. We've had a few warm days, seen a couple of tree buds, and gotten out the sandbox, but Mother Nature is not done with winter here yet...
