Haven Toronto

Read Haven Toronto‘s monthly e-magazine online – click on the thumbnail of the July issue title page on the right. 

The Toronto daytime shelter for elder homeless men is still in the process of signing up a group of individuals who are aware of their privileges and do what they can to help those less fortunate than them.

Watch a video about The Fortunate 500 right here.

Haven Toronto is dependent on donations to keep running, but if one-on-one help is more your thing, their Shop & Share site has got you covered. Here you can purchase anything from bottled water to sturdy shoes – and everything you buy there will be given straight to an elder homeless man in need. Toronto is a very hot place in the summer; dehydration can be deadly for those without shelter. You can help with every purchase you make! 

For donations to the general fund please click on the logo below. You will be taken to our very own online donations page. Please note that the page address is still for The Good Neighbours’ Club, the former name of the organization.

The Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada

The Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada supported World Youth Skills Day on July 15.

According to data from the United Nations, young people around the world are more likely to be unemployed or exposed to low-quality jobs, labor market inequality, and difficult school-to-work transitions. In Canada, youth aging out of care earn about $326,000 less over their lifespan than the average Canadian.

On World Youth Skills Day, we celebrate the many ways your support is helping youth from care build the skills they need to reach their full potential. Your generosity provides these young people with access to financial literacy training, cooking and nutrition workshops, employability skills training, counseling on managing interpersonal relationships, and education and career support programs. Thank you!

Read more about the foundation’s programs in their monthly newsletter The Buzz.

If you wish to help youth in foster care make a successful transition into adulthood please donate what you can by clicking on the logo below – it’s easy and secure!


Louis’ latest short film with the Affolter Brothers just won the Golden Sheaf Award for Best Drama at the Yorkton Film Festival. Congratulations to everyone involved!


This month we have well over 300 screencaps from the series This Life, Season 2, episode 2 Perfect Day. Louis plays David K. Crowley. The series was filmed in Montreal, and Louis enjoyed working there very much.

Plot Summary:
It’s the day of Maggie’s housewarming party, to which she’s invited the entire family minus Matthew; the two who still are not speaking to each other. Despite Maggie having moved frequently in her life, she has ulterior motives for holding this party, which the guests will discover. Prior to the party, Natalie, believing that her dizzy spells are signs that she is actually taking the experimental drug in the blind drug trial, wants to have what she considers a perfect day – a “normal” day doing something special – which means spending time with her kids. As they are all busy – most just wanting to avoid issues they are hiding from her – Natalie instead turns to Tia, her new friend from the support group, who may have a different view of what a perfect day constitutes. The only one who truly does have a planned morning is Emma, who has probably decided to accept her father David’s invitation for lunch. Following the party, Matthew decides to confront David about trying to reenter Emma and Romy’s lives. In the process, Matthew may get a better picture of his own family dysfunction. And Oliver seriously considers Romy’s request to live with him instead of Matthew if her mother passes away.              (adapted from IMDb)

Offworld, Episode 9: Isolation Trope in Sci-Fi Space Travel
By Norman Chan on July 16, 2018
“This week on Offworld, we explore the trope of isolation and loneliness in science fiction space travel, and how both fictional and real-world astronauts cope with being away from home for extended missions. Joining us are neuroscientist Indre Viskontas and field geophysicist Mika McKinnon for a lively discussion on how sci-fi depicts the very real challenge of isolation in space!”

Mika Wants Rocks!
PSA: If you’re meeting me at a convention (DragonCon and GateconE soon!), I’d be delighted if you brought me a wild rock common in your region.
Please collect ethically (no parks!) and grab a photo of where you found it (bonus if it includes scale). Small pebbles are best.

Every month Vancouver artist Nicole Pilich shares one of her henna creations with Ferreira Fest. Please visit her website for lots more photos and fascinating facts and information about this ancient artform. And if you find yourself in Vancouver – visit her studio and treat yourself to some Healing Body Art made just for you.

This month Nicole writes:

“To honour my dear friend who passed away recently I drew her a butterfly on a cotton cloth to signify her metamorphosis from this life. As henna is so temporary on skin, it is permanent on cotton. Although this piece was placed on her body and went with her, I won’t hold it or see it again, but it lives on in my memory, as does my dear friend Estar.”

And that, dear Friends, is about it for this month! Thanks for visiting often! Be sure to follow us on Twitter for all the Louis news you can handle and TV reminders!
