CN withholding pension from gay widower over outdated definition of spouse

The fight for full equality past, present, and future continues.

Ken Haire was devastated when his partner of 33 years, Gerry Schwarz, died in 2012. He was even more distraught when he learned he wouldn't see a dollar of the survivor benefits built into Schwarz's pension because CN Rail's plan did not recognize same-sex relationships at the time of his retirement...

Happy International Family Equality Day!

This year’s theme is "Families - being our authentic best”. As we celebrate the beauty of family diversity, we recognize that in far too many places, LGBTQ+ families experience fear, discrimination, and systematic inequality. We stand in solidarity with all rainbow families who can’t safely be themselves in public, and encourage everyone to join us in supporting family equality.

Today marks the beginning of Asian Heritage Month!

This is a great opportunity to learn about how Canadians with Asian heritage have enriched our country, especially now, with the recent rise of anti-Asian hate crimes. As a Human Rights organization, we unequivocally support those addressing racism in our society and we encourage community members to educate themselves and others on the lived realities of racialized and minority communities.

Julie Michels is our Offertory Performer this Sunday!

Julie’s travels have taken her far and wide. She has performed in jazz clubs and festivals throughout Europe, including such prestigious jazz events as the Glasgow Music Festival, the Utrect Festival in Holland, and the North Sea Jazz Festival.

The last few years have found Julie focused on North American venues and festivals, including the Toronto Jazz Festival, the Ottawa Jazz Festival, and clubs in New York and Toronto. Traveling to international shows such as those at the Haitian International Jazz Festival, the Jazz Tales Festival in Cairo, with the Cairo Symphony Orchestra and Chalarbre, France keeps her tied into the pulse of World Music and Jazz.

Julie has performed, toured, and recorded with some of the top names in several genres of the music business including the Chicago Free Jazz Movement, Don Braden, Joe Sealy, Kahil El’Zabar, Robi Botos, Larnell Lewis, George Koller, and Broadsway, a collaboration with Diane Leah and Heather Bambrick. Her recording projects include Come Together with Don Braden, Bass and Voice and Singing Naked with George Koller, and She Sings He Plays and Live at Statlers with Kevin Barrett and Broadsway projects, Old Friends and The Most Wonderful Time (maybe). She has also recorded the title track of the Grammy-nominated, Smile by Bill Warfield.

She has also done work with Decidedly Jazz Danceworks, the Toronto Tabla Ensemble, the Madison Celtic Renaissance Consort, and JazzWorks Jazz Camp, and she played a major role in the filming of “Amazing Voice”, Japan’s national television documentary about the diverse face of Canadian Music.

Julie is currently in pre-production of her new solo recording, reimagining the music of Lyle Lovett, with Grammy-nominated producer Mark Ruffin.
