A friend of my family, who is a nurse, and her colleagues have always refused to get flu shots. When their hospital tried to make the shots mandatory for all staff, they went to the union to put a stop to that plan.

They certainly won’t be getting the H1N1 vaccine when it arrives this fall.

Rachel Muenz - Writers - September 18, 2009

Writing and the written word have been a major part of Trecia Harley’s life ever since she could remember. As a child she loved to read and be transported to another world.
 
The magic of words was her main pastime growing up in Parry Sound, Ontario. Thus, writing became her favourite form of expression.
 
Trecia attended the University of Toronto where she studied English Literature, History and Celtic Studies. She also completed a publishing certificate course at Ryerson Polytechnic University.
 
“Throughout my entire education, I loved reading books, reading about the making of books, discussing the power of literature, and debating the need for it in daily life,” says Trecia. “To me, writing was, and will always be, THE ultimate form of connecting the minds of men.”
 
This lead Trecia to becoming involved with The Breath, an online magazine. The Breath was the brain-child of two men from Toronto: Shane Belcourt (Anthony) and Jordan O'Connor. Shane and Jordan are musicians and artists in their own right in Ottawa. Shane and Jordan saw the early possibilities of the Internet and were excited by the idea of forming an arts collective site which would house an e-zine and independent Canadian record label. 
 
Shane and Jordan asked Trecia and her husband Craig to help out - and they were immediately hooked.

One afternoon Cori found a token and stayed on for the whole route pressed to the back with her nose against the glass, watching the city leak out behind the red and white canister of people.
