    With three-quarters of new immigrants coming from Africa and Asia, we need to give attention to the peculiar health needs of this population. One aspect of the problem is how we address dementia, including Alzheimer's. Dementia mainly affects older people, 65 plus. There are roughly 25,000 new cases annually in Canada. A quarter of people over 85 are afflicted. The disease is seen by people from various cultures in different ways.

  • DeprescribingReuel S. Amdur

    Deprescribing is as important for patient care as prescribing. Too many prescriptions may cause serious problems, according to Dr. Ali Elbeddini, the pharmacy manager at Winchester District Memorial Hospital. He was speaking by videoconferencing to Ottawa's Social Workers in Aging and Gerontology on September 24. Deprescribing may involve either stopping or lowering the dosage of a prescription.

    Queen's University professor of political philosophy Will Kymlicka identified two elements in racism, racist stereotypes and the view that "the others" are not really part of "us." The latter was supported by the results of a survey of opinion that he promoted. He spoke at an event sponsored by the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences.

  • Egypt's Sisi delivers economic reforms but hurdles remain Reuters
    October 24, 2014

    In his first 100 days in office, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has made a fast start on economic reform: slashing costly fuel subsidies, raising taxes and devising infrastructure projects to secure long-term revenues and ease unemployment.

    Prayer plays a central role in the Abrahamic faiths. It is human speech addressed to God.

  • The meaning of ChristmasRev. Graham E. Morbey
    December 8, 2010

    It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in Toronto. And throughout most of the world, at least some part of Christmas will be in the air, on the street or hidden in the heart. Christmas is truly global.

  • Lent for our presentRev. Graham E. Morbey
    March 16, 2011

    When we share the premise that the God who is referred to in the texts of the Abrahamic faiths is essentially the same, then we are speaking of billions of people who, amid the great diversity within their own and between each other's traditions, share a great mystery: a God who claims not only to reveal himself to Jew, Christian and Muslim but also to every human being.

  • On the meaning of RamadanRev. Graham Morbey
    September 7, 2010

    A few days into Ramadan, I returned a keyboard and mouse I was having difficulty with to the store where I bought it. The pleasant young man who served me and did the paper work for the return looked to me like he might be Muslim. I put him to the test as I was leaving the store by asking him if it would be okay if I wished him a happy Ramadan.

  • From a Saudi prince, tough talk on America’s favoritism toward IsraelRichard Cohen
    June 23, 2011

    As best I can recall, I first met Saudi Arabia’s Prince Turki al-Faisal at a private home in Washington years ago. I found him stern and humorless, sometimes even bitter. I have seen him since at international conferences and the like — never in the mood for small talk and exhibiting, sometimes in his glorious robes, not an ounce of Bedouin charm. Still, I was unprepared for the opinion column he published in Sunday’s Post. It read like a declaration of war.

  • The dehumanizing nature of false accusations of anti-semitismRichard Forer
    December 19, 2011

    Perhaps the most dominating and confusing accusation emanating from one side of the Israel-Palestine debate is that virtually anyone who criticizes Israel's treatment of the Palestinian people hates Israel and is, ipso facto, an anti-Semite or self-hating Jew.
