Cover Story - Bruce Cockburn - Jul/Aug2016

Singer, songwriter, poet, activist and Canadian Music Hall of Famer, Bruce Cockburn has shared concert stages all over the world with the likes of the iconic Jimi Hendrix and British rock super group Cream.

A ‘folker’ and a ‘rocker,’ Cockburn studied music at Boston’s Berklee School of Music. He began his musical career in the late 1960s, singing and playing guitar in Ottawa-based bands, ‘The Children’ (1966), and ‘The Esquires’ (1967), before heading to Toronto to form ‘The Flying Circus’ (later known as ‘Olivus’). In 1969, Cockburn struck out on the solo career that would bring him the affirmation and approval from a world, in which he says, he felt like a stranger in a strange place.

To Move Or Not To Move? - Jul/Aug2016

This is the question that many Canadian seniors will eventually have to ask themselves, and often the answer is that they do not want to move out of their long-term home. A recent study* indicated that a higher percentage of Canadians over the age of 55 said that they would prefer to renovate and retrofit their current home rather than move to a new one. It found that 47 per cent of pre-retired and 56 per cent of retired respondents stated, ‘staying in my home is critical for my quality of life.’ It can be difficult to let go of a place where you have a lifetime of memories and, most likely, raised your children. However, if seniors don’t opt to downsize, they will face higher costs.
