Shake Hands with the Devil – A Movie Review

It’s been over 10 years since the genocide in Rwanda, the worst thing to have happened in recent history, and nothing has been able to tell this story better than the movie “Shake Hands with the Devil”.

This movie is probably the closest we will ever come to understanding the genocide as experienced through the eyes of General Romeo Dallaire. No details were spared, as this film included the callousness behind the systematic mass murder of a million people, the superpowers’ cold shoulder, and the anguish in one man in his relentless drive to put an end to this all.

All parts were brilliantly filmed in their original locations. As well, the actors were greatly casted (especially leading actor, Roy Depuis). This movie, in its heart wrenching, and upsetting moments, communicates the facts straight.

Absolutely be sure to watch “Shake Hands with the Devil” (and read the book).
And be grateful that Canadian funding still exists to tell these stories.

And on a side note, did you write to your MP about the badly needed aid in present day in Darfur?

Car Crazy At Fairvew

For anyone who is a public transit user that tries to get to Fairview Mall in Toronto, this post for you. I voiced my opinions to the powers to be and got no response.

When the Sheppard line was constructed, it was generally expected that Fairview Mall would be connected to Don Mills Station.  Unfortunately that wasn’t the case, as many public transit commuters found themselves traveling across busy parking lots to get to the main entrance.

The alternative entrance that is closer (but still not connected) can only be used for metropass holders. Occasionally, during rush hour there may be a ticket collector standing at the door to collect the fare. But its always a guessing game, and chances are you have to go through that obstacle course each time you want to get on the bus. And if its winter, you will have to endure its harsh blows as you travel across the parking lot.

This inconvenience seems as though they prefer to cater to their driving guests. Fairview mall, not only has overground and underground parking, it also conveniently placed a 5 or 6 story large parking buildingwhen Don Mills station opened! Those who want to leave their cars parked for the purpose of using the subway are not allowed to do so.

If this is any concern to you, please contact the powers to be, Cadillac Fairview and Councillor Dave Shine of Willowdale (Ward 24) via phone 416-395-6413 and e-mail

We definitely need a tunnel connecting Fairview mall and Don Mills station!

I will update you when I get a response!
