When reading this, January has already turned into February and the traditionally coldest month is behind us.

Toronto weather has altered like a roller coaster all the through the beginning of this year. Minus fifteen temperatures have soon turned to high single digits on the plus side.

The winters, or actually any seasons in the northern latitudes are never alike. Average temperatures can fluctuate widely.

Sometimes the feel of…

The Snow Village attracts tourists



On a sunny day the snow village is full of people on the contrary to a day before, when the village was almost as if a ghost town. It was raining, the streets of the village were covered in water and there was no sight of tourists.

Now the bad weather is only a memory, although one of the igloos is…

Elämä ja kuolema silmien edessä

18-vuotias karjalaispoika Ben Järvenpää juoksee Kannaksen kaduilla kotia kohti varmistamaan, että perhe on kunnossa. Ympärillä talot palavat ja pommit räjähtelevät.

Kun Järvenpää lopulta pääsee perille, äiti ja sisar on onneksi ehditty evakuoida kiireellä, mutta huonekalut ja verhot ovat paikoillaan vielä…

Finland's gone through many phases in their presidential elections

Vapaa Sana

Editorial

24.2.2012

The attendance in Finland’s presidential elections advance voting was surprisingly high both in Toronto and Canada. This indicates that the politics of our homeland still mean a lot to the immigrant Finns and they want to participate in things over the pond.

An interest in Finnish affairs has been on the rise during the recent elections. There are plenty of reasons for this. First, the internet has made our world smaller and it’s easier to…

Fabulous full moon causes restlessness and insomnia

The full moon shining in the sky in one of those wonders that goes unnoticed by nobody. It's staring us like an eye of Cyclop. It causes a tide phenomenon, but does it also induce lunacy as they claim?

When the full moon is on the sun and moon are on the opposite sides of the earth and the…

China emerging into an economic powerhouse while the west is declining

Vapaa Sana

Editorial

17.1.2012

Even though this year there won’t be a big economic shift, it’s only a matter of years before China will rise to be the biggest economic power in the world.

The United States has been an undeniable economic leader during the past hundred years. For instance Wall Street has been the most important trendsetter in the world economy and the global trade has been measured in the name of omnipotent US-dollars.

China, however, has a huge…

USA is a beloved, indifferent neighbour to Canada

Vapaa Sana

Editorial

10.1.2012

Finland has always had a little troubled stand on Sweden. In Scandinavian co-operation we are officially friends, but otherwise rather sulking neighbours. It's a little alike between Canada and the United States.

At least the Canadians know where the Yankeeland is found, while not all the Americans know where Canada is.

We are the biggest trading partners to each other and thus the economic fluctuations affect a lot to which…

Multicultural heritage turned into a career

Sami writer Nils Aslak Valkeapää once wrote that “The home is where the heart is; it travels with me”. This statement is very true in the life of Lisa Jokivirta, 28.

– My mom always says that I was born to be a bit of a nomad. Who knows? But it’s definitely when I’m on the move that I feel at my very…
