COVER Peter Mansbridge: Just a Journalist
Following his last broadcast for Canada’s 150th birthday celebration, Peter Mansbridge will walk away from the role he’s held for 30 years as anchor of The National and effectively say au revoir to his employer of the last half century, The CBC.
Retirement, in the traditional sense of the word, doesn’t quite capture Peter’s path forward as he will continue pursuing objective clarity and creating documentaries on a freelance basis.

Message from a Reader
I thoroughly enjoyed this latest publication. I have kept quite a few of the articles, for myself as well as to share with others. My Danish sister-in-law, who lives in Edmonton, will love the “Finding Hyggee In Denmark” story, by James Ellsworth. I recently gave her a book on Hygge so this is timely. The Legacy Giving article by Amber Adams clearly talks about the types and timing of charitable donations. And Pat Nicol always connects - sharing her thoughts on living joyously.
Still more: Sharing Family Stories, by Diane Salter (I’ll be sharing this with my Mom, brothers and their wives) and I’m planning to buy Mike McCardell’s book: “None of This Was Planned”, as talked about in the article Lauren P. MacLellan contributed. And all of the other articles were meaningful too! The Angel For A Day, by Kate Robertson, is so very inspiring and encouraging - after reading what Diane Falk has done in the medical profession to help patients and their families.
So really, this entire magazine is full of valuable information about valuable people. I’m just feeling bad now because I’m not listing the rest of the terrific articles...but the good news is they are all online to read!
Thank you for presenting such quality contributions and feel-good reading.

Companies that fail to acknowledge the purchasing power of this demographic will find their market share eroded by those companies that make an effort to understand and meet the needs of this influential customer.
