As a voting resident of Manitoba, I care deeply about the things in life that really matter, such as clean air, water and land, the wellbeing of the community and the quality of life we are leaving to future generations.

The nonbinding public consultations on hog industry expansion scheduled for this summer are not enough.

Until you hold full environmental hearings, I support an immediate moratorium on hog industry expansion in Manitoba, including new factory hog barns. The rights of ecosystems ought to be protected by the full weight of the law. Perhaps we need new laws to do that.

Breast Cancer facts
Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
