The very magic of telecommunications I was celebrating a couple of days ago for giving us access to the uplifting and hopeful, alerts us as well to the horrific and terrifying. The destruction from the Japan earthquake, and most especially the tsunami that followed, is staggering. The fallout (Japan is a critical export market for PEI GMO- free soybeans and canola, tuna, and herring roe, Japanese tourists have always been important visitors in the summer) will become clearer in the months ahead.
With other things on our minds, let me point you at something from the Globe and Mail you can refer back to when the spirit moves. It explains why the milk is always at the very back of a supermarket.
