OUR #WCW FOR INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

OUR #WCW FOR INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

Who run the world? Girls! Women, today is your day! It’s been a tough year, paying witness to world events and specifically the 2016 presidential election – its pretty clear we have a long way to go correcting some peoples way of thinking. And although we could have hoped for a better turn out on that one what we can say for sure is the process really shone a light on some of the backwards views the world has about women and really called a gender into action. But this isn’t a day to get down about the inequalities...

Health Food Store Shopping List: Be Greater Organics

Health Food Store Shopping List: Be Greater Organics

If you haven’t yet checked out Be Greater Organics, the latest health food store in Sudbury, I highly recommend you do.  They are not your typical health food store in our city, the layout is trendy and clean, but the items they offer are definitely unique.  The difference between this store and some of the others is the products they have brought in from all over Ontario, mainly food products focusing on allergy-friendly ingredients. Here is my must buy items from Be Greater Organics: Thornbury Bakery Bread: If you have never tried this brand of bread, it is pretty...

Sudbury Wolves Recap: Tough stretch at Home.

Sudbury Wolves Recap: Tough stretch at Home.

The Wolfpack had a frustrating home game doubleheader on Friday the 17th and Sunday the 19th. The Wolves faced off with both the North Bay Battalion (3-2), and Niagara Icedogs (5-4).  North Bay sits at 8th in the Eastern conference two spots behind the Wolves, and Niagara sits one position behind them at 7th.  A playoff berth is still in sight for Sudbury at 6th. Both games were very hotly contested and had the crowds on the edge of their seats in excitement. But this pair of matchups would not go their way, despite valiant efforts.  Strong performances were...

A Day in the Life at Old Rock Roastery

A Day in the Life at Old Rock Roastery

A rustle of the keys as we open up the doors to heaven – at least that’s how it feels for individuals who are purely run by coffee.  Old Rock Roastery has been opened on Minto St. for just over ten years now and I can remember being called down to the dinner table to discuss the journey of Old Rock via slideshow presentation as if it were yesterday.  Oh hi there – I am Isabelle, daughter of the owners Luc and Carole Roy. A typical day in the life as the Master Roaster, Carole, involves starting up the...

Top 5 Local Trails You Need to Check Out This Winter

Hillfield Trail   I instantly fell in love with the Hillfield Trail in Lively last winter when I joined some of my friends to go snowshoeing. This trail is my absolute favourite and I was almost hesitant to share it with all of you in case it becomes over populated! But they say happiness is only real when shared…   If you’re looking to go on a scenic walk, this would be your trail. The hilly terrain will take you through the forest, up and down stairs and over many bridges. It’s only about 2km in length and will lead...
