The book was printed at the unique Coach House Books on the UofT campus, where Emily has been photographed. Of the book and her father she says, "His sense of humour is alive in his poems...I can continue the conversation that ended when he died by reading his book."

Grand Manan, New Brunswick: Bucky Swigger is pleased with his nearly 4 tons of rockweed he gathered that morning. A lobster fisherman in the winter, Bucky prefers the freedom of rock-weeding in the summer season. Rockweed is used for its carrageenan, which is found in everything from ice cream to cosmetics. Bucky earns 43.50 a ton for his work on the back side of the island.

Grand Manan, New Brunswick: Pat Green, 20, shovels the nearly 8 tons of rockweed that had been gathered that morning into the back of the dump truck. Rockweed is harvested for its carrageenan, which is used in everything from toothpaste to gum. In addition to the dulsing industry, rockweeders - who make $47.50 a ton - hit the shores in the spring and summer, when lobster season ends.

Warden Woods subsidized housing at St. Clair and Warden. Marcus, Edwin, and Kercy enjoy a thanksgiving meal prepared by the Camp Hope team, at their community program, Urban Promise. Providing walk-home, after school homework and meal programs, Urban Promise brings stability to the lives of the kids it serves. As families are relocated from the park, many will end up in communities like Warden Woods. I am interested to contrast the quality of life from one community to the other.
