Seriously, if you are cooking at home, make one meal. Your family members can either eat it or go hungry their choice. Kids and adults alike. As a parent, we have a responsibility to buy or serve reasonably nutritious meals. We are not responsible for catering to the whims of all family members
06/27/2017 at 23:38
Amen Sister. My kiddo isn't even picky but somehow meals have become the battleground for power. I often only cook one awesome meal and stick to my guns, only to have round two at bedtime because she is hungry. I can't have her going to daycare saying mommy won't give her food, I'll have social services knocking on my door! Meal prep is the most thankless chore to me.I'm not surprised by what the study found in terms of discord at the dinner table.

Don't let guilt drag you down. After not eating and missing a few suppers they will eat. Kids should feel guilty for not eating what is made and purchased for them. We have a word on our house that's banned and as bad as the F word. It's yucky. I don't let the kids say it because food should be respected and not taken for granted.

what why do they call it the heartland because I lived there all my life and always thought it was that you know we work hard and give a crap about things like look after each other and such, and now somebody tells me it not? is it because we bang the drums so loud at Rider games it sounds like the country has a heartbeat?

A fun read.
Who really expects a billionaire real estate tycoon to find much commonality with a generational farmer?
At least he makes the time and isn't afraid to get a little sentimental... without trying too hard to hide the fact he's become somewhat of a parody of himself. It comes across as more genuine than some polished speech appearing on a teleprompter, delivered by some groomed elitist who speaks in carefully measured tones.

Was Sidney Crosby's most famous goal a bigger moment for Canada than Paul Henderson's flare for the dramatic in 1972?

To compare those two iconic goals is like comparing apples and oranges. Look, Canada really need to win in Vancouver. No way we could lose to the States, would of been a travesty, not to win gold. That truely brought the country together, in hushed tension, and celebration. At true iconic Canadian moment. But really though; Hendersons game winning goal, is the most iconic moment in Canadian sports history.
06/27/2017 at 21:01
Ironic since both Crosby's and Henderson's goals won games dramatically that Canadians assumed they were going to win easily...
06/27/2017 at 21:46
This must be the trolliest question ever asked by Maclean's. They can't be serious. I'd take Ben Johnson over Carl Lewis in the 1988 Olympics before Sid's goal.

Forget percentages; if you don't piss me off, you'll get $5 (which is more than 10% because my meals aren't usually over $50). If you do piss me off, you get zero. Simple
06/27/2017 at 20:26
A tip is a gift. It is given for outstanding service. When I tip it relates to the service I was given. If I am looking at the bottom of my coffee cup while my server visits with the other staff you can bet your gift will be small or non-existent. On the other hand, friendly, smiling and a full cup throughout my meal will get you a nice gift! lol
06/27/2017 at 19:46
Tipping should go away. The service should be included in the price of the meal. Then, if the experience is bad (food, service, cleanliness, whatever) I'll just not return to your restaurant. That keeps the onus for a positive experience, including service, on management.

Or a PM who whores out his ankles for political points?

How does the PM justify wearing Islamic socks to a Pride parade when Muslims are throwing gays off roof tops in the ME? It is all so confusing to me...someone explain it.Is he promoting Islam at a Pride parade? Why did he do it?

"It’s very hard for a rich hockey-team owner, or rich person, or rich group of people who want to bring a sports franchise to a community to say, ‘We need your help, average Joe,’” Coletto said. “It becomes a very political debate because of the optics of wealthy people often asking for some support to help them make money as a sports franchise.”
06/27/2017 at 18:34
The NHL is not good hockey, if my taxes are gonna support anything, I vote it go towards say our IHL teams and our emerging athletes (and even they should find a way to fund themselves.) Giving money to hockey but not other sports simply shows favortism.

This sniper unit is not a combat unit. It is specifically an anti-terror unit deployed to counter terrorists. It is JTF2, a rather famous covert force with special infantry and police men.
... ISIS are firstly terrorists. This unit shot at and killed a terrorist, in a killing action, killing a killer on killing fields. This wasn't the main men's washroom in the Air Canada Centre. It was a damn fine shot. Too bad, JTF2 medals aren't publicly given, if at all. They are all heroes.
06/27/2017 at 19:15
Not sure "celebrated" is the right term to be used. "Recognized" might be better. We can be proud of the prowess, and recognize the need for such actions, but I really don't think we want to be dancing in the streets. On the other hand, though, maybe JT should send a copy of the article to Trump with "Looking forward to a fairly negotiated NAFTA agreement." [Kidding!]

oh stop my ribs hurt.. ok i'm ok ...lol Mr Trudeau you funny..can we really afford that one bullet write in the history books we could have a parade with fireworks maybe some hot dogs corn and cotton candy for the kids..lets celebrate record breaking sniper shot
