from the editor

HEADLINES AND MEDIA pundits like to yell the battle cry, “The millennials are coming!” But the cold hard fact is it’s us, the aging population that are the surging class, age-wise, that is. Between 2011 and 2016, the number of people over the age of 85 increased by 19.4 per cent, nearly four times the rate of the overall Canadian population, which grew a meagre five per cent in comparison. But the 85- to 89-year-olds are mere babes compared to those that reach and surpass 90. According to Statistics Canada, in 2018 there were approximately 317,404 Canadians over the age of 90. And this trend isn’t going anywhere but up: estimates put the 90-plus population at 395,500 by 2025, near 600,000 by 2035 and a whopping one million by 2045. They’re…

In the early ’80s, Julie Enfield started her career with a move to Italy where she modelled for Versace and Armani. Back in Canada in the ’90s, she added photographer, writer and fashion publicist to her resumé. Her book, Kiss and Tell, was published in 2004. For “The Other Side of Silence” (pg. 62), she shares her story of living with Parkinson’s. Marni Jackson has written about pain, millennials, and motherhood. Flatiron Books published her first fiction, Don’t I Know You? in 2016, and she’s working on a new novel about what it’s like to reconnect with your first lover – in your 70s. In “A Crash Course in Concussion” (pg. 52), she takes us through her own slip, fall and ongoing recovery. Award-winning illustrator Hanna Barczyk is fresh from a career…

SWEARING OFF Was it really necessary to include Ms. Dale’s use of profanity at the beginning of the reading even though you had attempted to change the exact word [“Prime Time,” April]? We hear enough foul language in our society. I do not feel the need to read more in what I thought was an enlightening magazine.—Susan McClelland, Springwater, Ont. MEAT? NOT SO MUCH Re: “Life Simplified/Diet,” April]: Although Tara Losinski suggests eating more plants (which was exciting to read), it goes on to present disappointing misinformation about the presumption that we still need animal-sourced foods. There is a great deal of information indicating great health can be achieved and maintained with the elimination of animal products from our diet and moving to a diet that is plant-based. I would suggest that Canada’s Food Guide…

this way up

(AND DOWN) A South African tour operator, 51, gets slurped up by a whale headfirst and then spit out, telling Sky News the experience prompted him to think about the enormity of the ocean and slightness of humans And once that passed his thoughts turned to, “OMG! OMG! I’m being swallowed by a whale!” On a scale of one to “got spit out by a whale,” this guy’s pretty lucky New Jersey man, 54, who forgot his lottery ticket at the store after purchasing it, retrieves it from a Good Samaritan and discovers he has won $273 million. “Okay, Grandma, I promise I’ll call more often. Now please stop spamming me with articles about these studies” Two new studies, including one out of Quebec, lend credence to the evolutionary Grandmother Hypothesis, which says…

still chic

NILE RODGERS is the epitome of “hit maker,” co-founding the disco/R&B band Chic in the 1970s and turning out classics like “Le Freak” and “Dance, Dance, Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah)” before producing seminal 1980s albums including David Bowie’s Let’s Dance. Now, following It’s About Time, Chic’s first album in 26 years, the 66-year-old hits the road with Chic and Cher, landing in Toronto and Ottawa in April. MIKE CRISOLAGO: It’s About Time is about new beginnings. What does that mean to you? NILE RODGERS: It allows me to think with the brain that I have now, which, I believe, is more evolved than when we first started … My concept now is to get back to the fun part of it. MC: You once said disco is the closest we’ve come to reaching…
