Congratulations to Michael Redhill for winning the 2017 Scotiabank Giller Prize for his novel 'Bellevue Square'.

"I've been telling a close friend of mine this fall that, to judge by all the things that have been happening to me, I must be in a coma. But if I am, you are all too, so let's not wake up from it," said Redhill in his acceptance speech.

"Bellevue Square follows Jean Mason, a woman who finds out that she may have a doppelgänger in the Toronto neighbourhood of Kensington Market. When Jean decides to investigate, she sets off a chain of events that put her through a mental and emotional wringer." CBC.ca

Today we celebrate National Child Day. National Child Day is celebrated on November 20th each year. National Child Day has been celebrated across Canada since 1993 to commemorate the United Nations' adoption of two documents centered on children's rights.
By ratifying the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1991, Canada made a commitment to ensure that all children are treated with dignity and respect. This commitment includes the opportunity for children to have a voice, be protected from harm and be provided with their basic needs and every opportunity to reach their full potential.
Celebrating National Child Day is about celebrating children as active participants in their own lives and in communities, as active citizens who can and should meaningfully contribute to decision-making.
