Help Ya'Gotta and Movember Canada - Find a Cure For Prostate Cancer!

In 1991 I lost my Father to prostate cancer, that metastasized into his bones. It was brutal watching him go from a healthy male, in his early 70's, to the condition at the time of his death. I'm regularly monitored for prostate cancer and wish all me would do so to.

If you would like to help support research into this condition, that kills men, please visit my Movember Canada Mospace, find out more about prostate cancer, join the annual campaign and, if you can...make a donation!

Thank you!  Bob Kenyon, Publisher of Ya'Gotta

#YVR 102nd Grey Cup to be the most social #GreyCup ever

The Canadian Football League has plans to make the 102nd Grey Cup in Vancouver the most social Grey Cup in its storied history.

"For decades, the Grey Cup has been one of the most social events in Canada every year," said CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon. "But this year, we plan to make it the most social Grey Cup ever, taking it from the streets of Vancouver and BC Place Stadium to fans everywhere through social media, live content and special events."

In order to achieve its ambitious goal, the CFL has formed key partnerships and developed an aggressive plan to maximize the social reach of Canada's largest single day sporting event.

Here is a detailed look at everything planned for this year's Grey Cup.

The Sweat Lodge – An Aboriginal Healing Experience

There is a wide range of purification ceremonies associated with Canadian Aboriginal peoples, but perhaps the most well-known is the sweat lodge.

Sweat lodges have been a tradition for First Nations throughout North America since time immemorial, and they still serve many functions for indigenous people today. The sweat lodge ceremony cleans and heals the body. It heals the mind – bringing clarity – and it is often a testing place, offering a rite of passage where a participant can demonstrate endurance, strength and courage. Finally, sweat lodges are also holy places where Aboriginal people can renew their deep connection to the universe and to the spirit realm.

POLL: BC Ferries considering axing the Horseshoe Bay-Departure Bay route

BC Ferries is floating the idea of scrapping the Horseshoe Bay to Departure Bay route, a move which is likely to be extremely unpopular with riders.

The idea is contained in the ferry corporation’s Major Routes Strategy.

Ferry traffic from mid and Vancouver Island would go through the Duke Point-Tsawwassen route. BC Ferries stresses any changes wouldn’t take place for five to seven years.
