Hear from youth mental health advocate Jacob Hartley, the Hon. Michael Wilson and James Maloney, MP for Etobicoke-Lakeshore on youth mental health. Produced by MLSE Foundation.
Welcome to our May edition.
In this issue, we're featuring James Maloney, MP for Etobicoke-Lakeshore as he draws our attention to the importance of mental health awareness during the COVID-19 pandemic. There are many resources available to us, so if you or someone you know needs support, please read our cover story on page 16 for details.
There's been a lot of coverage of the vaccine rollout in the mainstream media. We decided to speak with two of our local healthcare professionals on a recent episode of the Etobicoke Lakeshore Podcast; Dr. Timothy Kodsi, Medical Lead at Mimico Medical, and Jonathan Nhan, Pharmacist / Owner at Shoppers Drug Mart in Long Branch. Both of whom are on the frontlines of the pandemic and they offer some unique perspectives about the vaccine rollout. You can listen to the podcast here:
To that point, Dr. Kodsi has written a compelling article this month. I encourage you to read it on page 24.
As we continue supporting local businesses throughout the pandemic, we've featured our favourite local pub, T.J. O'Shea's Irish Snug. We caught up with their owner, Colby Kriegl, to see what they're up to these days and how they're staying ahead of the curve to combat the most recent set of lockdowns. Please do your best to support local and please consider ordering out from local restaurants to help them through these tough times. Read our Support Local feature on page 10.
I'd also like to point out an article from Matthew Douglas. Matthew is a Long Branch resident and the Lead Pastor at West Edge Church in Port Credit. His words inspire me and I hope they'll do the same for you. Read his article on page 12.
And, finally, I'd like to wish all the Moms out there a very Happy Mother's Day. Thank you to my amazing and wonderful wife, Jessica, for all she does to raise our boys and hold down the fort. I'm one lucky guy!
Thank you so much for reading this issue,
