Many of my friends consider me a cosmopolitan guy, a world traveler, a literary connoisseur.

There's been another casualty due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Organizers of the Pride weekend have been forced to cancel the always-popular Pride Parade as Kootenay Pride announced there will be no application for a parade permit this summer.

My favourite police officer on television is smart, empathetic, attentive and brave. He’s also incredibly handsome.

I’m talking about Rex, the fictional police canine played by the German shepherd Diesel vom Burgimwald who co-stars on CITY TV’s hit show...
