Feminism needs mentioning

April 28, 2017

by Janet Nicol

In this opinion piece for the April 27 2017 issue of the Jewish Independent newspaper, I critique the state of the world through a feminist lens, inspired by a lively panel discussion April 9 at Vancouver’s Peretz Centre entitled “Israel, Canada and Me in the Age of Trump.”

Print copies of the issue are available at certain cafes and public spaces around Vancouver and by subscription and on-line at – http://www.jewishindependent.ca/feminism-needs-mentioning/

A Celtic Christmas

Exploring the Mystical Kyle of Tongue

by Janet Nicol

Along Scotland’s most northern coast is a charming Highland retreat overlooking a point of land jutting out like a tongue. Vistiors to the village, known as Tongue and its inlet, the Kyle of Tongue, can expect to explore spellbinding landscape.

So begins the story of a pilgramage to my paternal ancestors’ croft along the northern tip of the British Isles a decade ago. My encounters with the memorable landscape, flocks of sheep and a lone “Nicol” clanswoman are chronicled in the December, 2009 issue of Celtic Life magazine, published out of Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Here’s a short video (with thanks to the person who posted the clip anonymously on the internet) panning the landscape, where not just the Celts dwelled, but also for a time, Norsemen and Romans.
