Missisauga sci-fi author Robert. J. Sawyer wins a Galaxy award at the China International Science Fiction and Fantasy Festival. The author of such excellent books as Far-Seer and Hominids said how science fiction is wonderful because it transcends language and culture and tyrannical governments with no concern for human rights.

Stelco to be purchased by U.S. Steel. This is the 487th major Canadian corporation to be bought out by foreign concerns in the last week. Well, no, not really, but it sure feels that way.
