A Mortician's Tale, by Toronto-based indie team Laundry Bear, deals with death in ways decidedly unlike most action-packed video games that often dominate the public consciousness. Running approximately an hour long, A Mortician's Tale isn't especially difficult or challenging — unless the subject matter makes you queasy.

    'A bill that was promised': Support for Quebec's religious neutrality bill holds steady

    While Quebec's new law prohibiting face coverings has been widely condemned as an attack on religious minorities, there is also a quiet and steady growth of support for it within Quebec. Before Bill 62 passed at the National Assembly earlier this week, a poll suggested an overwhelming majority of Quebecers were behind it. Eighty-seven per cent of Quebec respondents surveyed by the Angus Reid Institute in early October said they support the bill, while six out of 10 Quebecers "strongly support" it.

    Ontario college strike spotlights 'new norm' of precarious labour in academia

    A strike by Ontario's college teachers is shedding light on a trend in higher education that some say is "shrouded in secrecy" and needs public attention. Precarious work is a trend in the labour market in Canada in general, but it's not necessarily associated with the ivory towers of the country's post-secondary institutions. Universities and colleges, however, are increasingly putting faculty on short-term contracts instead of hiring them for full-time, permanent jobs.
