Long Weekend Nourishment with Kristin Philipson and Roberta Howey
In honour of Mother’s Day; Jim Harbell, Warren Laing and Brian Lawson talk about women who have inspired their spirits.
Words from Jim Harbell:
More than twenty years ago, on a Saturday morning, there was much excitement in our household, particularly with our two oldest girls who were likely 7 and 9 at the time. The excitement was caused because they were going on a march, to learn how to carry placards and shout on the front steps of Queen’s Park. I said to my wife, oh the girls are getting a lesson in civil disobedience 101 are they? No she responded, it was the expected response, as she said everyone has the right to free speech in a democracy and they need to learn that sometimes you just have to do something if you believe what is going on is wrong. In this case, the topic was cuts to the pubic education system, a topic that had a potential direct impact on the girls.
