"How selfish soever man may be supposed, there are evidently some principles in his nature, which interest him in the FORTUNE OF OTHERS, and render THEIR HAPPINESS necessary to him, though he derives nothing from it, except the pleasure of seeing it."

Adam Smith in The Theory of Moral Sentiments, quoted by Preston Manning in Fraser Forum July 2001 [a reprint of his address to the Fraser Institute Annual General Meeting].

"I see well enough now that I hoped for the impossible – for the laying of what is the most obstinate ghost of man’s creation, of the uneasy doubt uprising like a mist, secret and gnawing like a worm, and more chilling than the certitude of death – the doubt of the sovereign power enthroned in a fixed standard of conduct."

Helping men and families in Ottawa

The Canadian Centre for Men and Families - Ottawa Gala Luncheon is now set for Sept. 16 at 1 p.m. with a great lineup of speakers and an auction.

The CCMF-O, a hub for the health and well-being of boys, men, fathers and families, needs your contribution to continue providing services, including referral, to men and boys in difficulty or in crisis in Ottawa.

I hope to see you there: tickets are available here.
