Dreamcatcher trampoline

A giant dreamcatcher adorned with hundreds of Christmas lights stands on the front lawn of Wabie’s aunt and uncle’s house in Timiskaming First Nation, an Algonquin community in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region of Quebec.

With about a 3.5 metre diameter, it features over 900 lights.


Double Olympic Champ Rosie MacLennan

IOC posted a terrific interview with Rosie. She’ll be contending for Gold medal #3 in Tokyo

“Dave (Ross) and I talked about routines after Rio, and he was like, ‘I just want to see you do cool things, whatever about the medals’.

That brings the joy again,” said MacLennan, who will compete in the Japanese capital 81 years after her grandfather was denied a place at the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 1940 by the outbreak of the Second World War.
