Canada is too slow in developing business in China

Today, The Globe and Mail published an article titled, “Canada’s too slow boat to China”.  The author pointed out several factors that have likely contributed to this slow movement.  I feel that one important factor is missing.  Deep down, Canadians probably have not given China and Chinese people serious respect. Several years ago, the MBA director […]

Gay Pride Parade In Toronto June 29, 2008

I remember the first time I saw nudist men in the gay pride parade in Toronto years ago, I felt uncomfortable.  The mainstream media was quite averse to them and the local gay media even argued that they shouldn’t be allowed in the next parade so that a cleaner and more representable image of the LGBT […]

Building An Igloo

“Men are needed to go to the wildness with me, this winter, to build an igloo or quinzee and sleep in it overnight.  Cold. Hard work. Danger.  These are the only promised rewards.”  I placed this ad in Manline.com on November 1, 2002, hoping to find a young, tough, adventurous mate.   A few people responded […]

I spent the first half day on ground learning all the techniques needed for freefall diving.  The most important parts are that I need to spread my limbs to keep a flying position, to monitor the altimeter reading on my […]

Playing Water Polo

Seattle Otters had only five water polo players – some were straight – attending the IGLA 2001 tournament in Toronto.  Lisa and I, two neophytes in Toronto, joined them.  Seven players.  No substitute.  Lisa and I could barely float after the first day of the tournament.  The second day, our competing teams played us six-on-six, so […]

Portage in Algonquin Park (Sept. 6 – 10, 1993)

That day, it was cloudy, cool, and still.  I was paddling my canoe through a bog area, moving cautiously and slowly towards Big Trout Lake.  Behind me was another canoe paddled by two Americans whom I had met a couple of times on my canoeing and portaging route.  The water was shallow, just deep enough […]
