• What were the challenges the community faced at that time and what are your recollections of how the newspaper handled them? Are you especially proud of the Glebe Report’s handling of any issue? On reflection, is there something you would have done differently?
• What are the most pressing challenges facing Glebe residents today? Are they different from those encountered during your editorship? What role can a community newspaper play today?

Capital to Capitol by Canoe: Part III

By Clive Doucet
The expedition from Ottawa to Washington D.C. was in memory and honour of William Commanda, the Algonquin elder and spiritual leader who died on August 3, 2011 at the age of 98. As a child, William Commanda avoided residential school by hiding in the forest, and was able to escape that great eraser of language and culture. In spite of a childhood marked by poverty and hunger, he grew up to be recognized for his leadership by his own people, and by people from many other countries. As Keeper of the Seven Fires Prophecy Belt, the Jay Treaty Border Crossing and the Three Figure Welcoming Wampum Belt, band chief and in his elder years, Grandfather Commanda, he was recognized around the world for his efforts to inspire reconciliation and spiritual renewal among peoples of all nations with his annual Circle of All Nations meetings.
