Unreserved 48:15 How Indigenous people are strengthening fur traditions in an anti-fur worldInuvialuit fashion designer Taalrumiq says she knows first-hand how using real animal fur can foster harsh criticism and anger in people who are against the fur industry. Taalrumiq, whose English name is Christina Gruben King, creates couture pieces and fine art using the materials and designs of her ancestors. But despite the negativity toward using and selling fur, Indigenous people say fur can be a sustainable, respectful and even luxurious material for clothing, accessories and art. Fur farms breed and raise animals for their fur, and are considered cruel to animals that would otherwise be living in the wild. Taalrumiq says faux fur doesn't compare to the real thing when you're trying to stay warm in the North.

A family business since 1971, this hybrid butcher/grocer specializes in antibiotic-free meat hailing from P.E.I., an array of sausages, chicken and seafood, and a rotating menu of prepared dishes. He knew a butcher in Cabbagetown looking to sell his business, and would Terry want in on the venture? Terry and Stewart purchased the shop in 1971, and when Stewart passed away in 1991, the Michelin family took full control. “The change is good for the neighbourhood,” Michelin says, “as new shops bring in new people.”Michelin isn’t alone in maintaining the family business. Getting most of his family involved in the business sets up Michelin for a comfortable stroll into retirement.

The Nanaimo bar. It was first deemed the Nanaimo bar by Vancouver Sun columnist Edith Adams in 1953 when she wrote that the dessert came from Nanaimo. And in 2021, British Columbians were nonplussed when the New York Times published a recipe and photo of a Nanaimo bar that was, quite frankly, all wrong. In 2019, a Canada Post stamp featuring the dessert showed far too much of the middle layer, prompting outrage from Nanaimo bar enthusiasts. So, how do you make the perfect Nanaimo bar?

It was on this date in 1942 that one of Canada’s greatest parliamentary performers, R.B. Bennett, took to his feet for the first time as a member of the House of Lords at Westminster. His service in that historic chamber meant he now held a unique parliamentary. Bennett had now been a member of the Legislature of the Northwest Territories, the Alberta Legislature, the House of Commons, and now the House of Lords in London. Bennett was elevated to the Lords on the advice of UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill and served with distinction there as the Viscount Bennett of Mickleham, Calgary and Hopewell, until his death in 1947.

With a diameter of 1 to 2km, space rock named 2022 AP7 crosses our orbit but has ‘no chance’ of hitting EarthAstronomers say they have discovered the largest planet killer-sized asteroid in eight years, and that the huge space rock will cross Earth’s orbit. The asteroid, named 2022 AP7, was reported by researchers looking for space rocks within the orbits of Earth and Venus. With a diameter of about 1.1km to 2.3km, the team say 2022 AP7 is the largest PHA discovered since 2014 and probably in the top 5% of the largest ever found. While the finding of 2022 AP7 may bring to mind visions of the asteroid Armageddon depicted in the film Don’t Look Up, the study also offers reassurance. Tate said an approach like Dart might not be suitable for 2022 AP7, given the size of the asteroid, but there were other possible methods.
