Hopefully Stephen Harper will avail himself of his ex-Prime Ministerial benefit plan and begin getting some emotional counselling. Nobody is ever truly beyond hope, not even an angry neocon control freak like him. At the larger scale, no community is ever truly beyond hope, either. Change for the better awaits those willing to think through how they came to be where they are and what they must do going forward if they are to become the healthiest, happiest and most authentic versions of themselves they can. One of the major components of the Greater Toronto Area is Vaughan. Vaughan is a lucky place in many ways but it could maybe use some counselling, a road map to behavioural optimization and self-actualization, as it were.
