There SHE is! 💯🙌
.
From @cbcnews: The $10 bill featuring civil rights heroine Viola Desmond went into circulation today.
•
In 1946, Desmond, a Halifax beautician and businesswoman, was arrested and tossed out of a movie theatre in New Glasgow, N.S., for sitting in the whites-only section.
•
She spent one night in jail and her subsequent fight against the injustice she faced helped end segregation in Nova Scotia.
•
Desmond is the first Canadian woman to be featured alone on a regularly circulating banknote.
•
Wanda Robson, Desmond’s sister, will be at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg to witness the launch of the bill and make a ceremonial first purchase.
•
“It's very hard to describe the feeling you get when your own sister, a member of your family, is going to be honoured... with a Canadian bill,” she said.

Mya the white shepherd and her Australian owner, Mark, have probably seen more of North America than most.
•
The pair have spent over a year touring the continent, Mark making sure to document the experience all the while on his Instagram account.
•
Photos on his account show the pair doing everything from racing down a snow-covered mountain in the Rockies to jogging along the seawall in Vancouver.

Mya the white shepherd and her Australian owner, Mark, have probably seen more of North America than most. • The pair have spent over a year touring the continent, Mark making sure to document the experience all the while on his Instagram account. • Photos on his account show the pair doing everything from racing down a snow-covered mountain in the Rockies to jogging along the seawall in Vancouver. • "I want to include her in what I'm doing as much as I can," Mark says. "So things like going snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, kayaking, mountain biking ... things I probably wouldn't have previously done whilst travelling, I'm now doing all the time, because it gets to include her in it." • The pair's North American tour was inspired by a family tragedy. Mark’s dad died of a heart attack two years ago, while celebrating his son’s 30th birthday. • "It taught me that you can't just hold off and wait for these things to happen," he says. • The two of them were initially planning to spend just a year in North America but already have extended their stay for six months and now don't see themselves returning to Australia until next spring. • • • Credit: @mark_and_myas_adventures | #CBC #CBCNews #Canada ...

F​reezing rain in parts of Ontario encased cars in a layer of ice. Drivers hit back.

Commuters posted videos of themselves punching through the ice-encrusted opening after rolling down their car windows.

Arguably, these videos were the only upside to an otherwise nasty weather day.

I started playing sports when I was barely out of the toddler phase. My parents enrolled me in swimming lessons and figure skating. I went on to play, for various numbers of seasons and at various abilities (I’m sure some of these attempts were hysterical for my parents), gymnastics, tee-ball and baseball, soccer, karate, volleyball, competitive swimming, rugby, lacrosse, hockey, yoga, cross-country and track, skiing and snowboarding, surfing – I’m sure I’m missing something.⁣
⁣
Sports taught me so much about what I know and believe today, about how I act, and how I see and handle things. They were - and are - a huge, positive influence in my life.⁣
⁣
Yesterday, the CBC disclosed details of an investigation they lead that revealed at least 222 coaches involved in amateur sports over 20 years have been convicted of sex offences involving more than 600 victims under age 18.⁣
⁣
I can't imagine how different Sports were for those victims - and the countless others who haven't been able to come forward.⁣
⁣
National policies are being put in place to protect athletes, but those governing bodies are so far removed from the kids playing in recreational leagues in small towns (and big cities) all across the country.⁣
⁣
I wrote a post on www.thehappyhippo.ca about why we, collectively, need to ensure sports are a safe space for all kids. It takes a village - let's work together to keep kids safe. Please give it a read and share with anyone involved in the sports community.⁣

A CBC News team is in Haiti covering the violent anti-corruption protests. The team spoke to four men who belong to local gangs known as "baz" who opened up about what their lives were like living in the poor neighbourhoods of Port-au-Prince. • Reynold Chalus, 43, says the wealth gap has created deep divisions. "The problem we have in my neighbourhood is that we see the wealthy people and how they live well while we live in bad conditions, hunger, no work," says Chalus. "We’re not really thieves or bandits we have to resort to these things because of the problems that exist in the country." • Mismanagement and bribery by previous governments, including that of former president René Préval, helped to inflame the "gang phenomenon," according to 27-year-old Arold Cadet. "At that time, the guys who were running the country were taking care of themselves while the masses were suffering, so we had, even more, youth quitting school to join the gangs. My older brother joined a gang so I followed him and joined the same gang." • Dimitri Fabien, 29, barely escaped being armed by his neighbourhood leaders. "I had to go on the run, sleeping in the streets and living a miserable life. With the help of the community police, I was able to become a car washer. Now, I would like to help some of these youth who are in the street find some kind of social support because the life bearing arms isn’t worth it." • For Kobe, joining a gang came down to money. "The reason we stood up is because the U.S. dollar is becoming very expensive," said the 35-year-old. "That causes things to become more expensive so we wanted to let the government know how difficult things are." • • • • • Photos by: Jason Burles, CBC News @j.burles | Reporting by Sylvia Thomson, CBC News | #Haiti #PortAuPrince #Protest #Portrait #Photography #CBCNews #CBC ...

WIP - from Provenance Unknown this is the six post I have been exploring the still life In particular re-working other artists garbage left behind at @gibralterpointto art center on Toronto Island where I share a studio.  I am fascinated by other peoples artistic process and the use of materials not familiar to me as a photographer. I have finally made some process images that are working for me and will be posting some of these for the next few days. This work is part of a larger body of work that questions value, authorship, and provenance within the cultural community. For additional images in this series please go to Lens Culture.
