Good to meet you Terry Whitney
My wife and I left Englandland in 1968 and went to Canada too seek a spot of adventure teachinghing in the wilds of northern Alberta: “No Weaklings Need Apply” stated the advertisement.ent. Almost 50 years later thatat spot of adventure continues.s. After spending some 20 years in Alberta, we e moved from the Prairies to “Lotusland” (the west coast of British Columbia), where we have lived with a daily view of the e Pacific ever since.
Friends on Vancouverver Island introducedintrod us to the Guardian airmail edition – we loved it! Howev However, life became saturated wit with the ordinariness of working,workin plus the pleasure of bringin bringing up our son and daught daughter. Sadly, the Guardian subscription lapsed. Tw Twelve years ago I suffe fered a brain aneurism ( (now fully recovered) and spent many sedentary months bem moaning the quality o of the news on the TV, ra radio and the regional ne newspapers. Then the Gu Guardian reappeared, thanks to my wife’s intervention and subscription renewal. Now the whole family looks forward to its arrival. I get first read, jumping happily all over the place, followed by my wife who reads it diligently from front to back.
The Guardian provides us with that unique collection of perspectives on world affairs. The medium allows for a certain time and distance, so that critical thinking is encouraged. I shall never, ever again allow my subscription to lapse!
