Coast to Coast: July 12 to July 18

July 18, 2015
Here are some of the things we’ve been reading about across this great country of ours:
The Mayor of Vancouver, Gregor Robertson - who is perhaps best known for the organic juice company he started before entering municipal politics, and for installing bike lanes in the most unexpected places as mayor, is taking part in a climate change meeting at the Vatican.
In cinemas, The Minion Movie finally made its debut. The Prairie Messenger offers this review via Catholic News Service.
On a serious note: The Pan Am Games have begun in Toronto. With any international sporting event there is a marked increase of activity in the sex trade industry and human trafficking. Here’s one campaign designed to help raise awareness about trafficking and hopefully save some women from falling victim to this practice.
