Award winning author, Joseph Boyden speaks with the Honourable Justice Murray Sinclair prior to taking the stage to discuss the Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s production, Going Home Star. The company kicked off its diamond anniversary season with this world première choreographed by Mark Godden. It’s a work 10 years in the making, first envisioned by late Cree elder/activist Mary Richard and artistic director André Lewis, and in turn supported by the national Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the production’s associate producer Tina Keeper. The nearly two-hour story ballet openly acknowledges Canada’s painful legacy of government-sanctioned residential schools, where indigenous children were ripped from their families and forced into boarding schools.

Recently spent a few days in the very funky city of Minneapolis in the state of Minnesota. The origin and growth of the city was spurred by the proximity of Fort Snelling, the first major United States military presence in the area, and by its location on Saint Anthony Falls which provided power for sawmills and flour mills. But it is so very much more. From outstanding food to the Guthrie Theater and world class park system designed by Theodore Wirth, it is the bicycling capital of the U.S with over 170 communal bike stations. http://www.bicycling.com/news/featured-stories/1-bike-city-minneapolis
