As reflected in the Due South – Blue Alberta Skies – Ride Forever video with Paul Gross (YouTube), it can be challenging to be older; please click here.  You could be a senior who lives in a remote location. Paul Gross reflects on how harsh the climate can be in some places in Canada in Inuit Soliloquy; touch on here.

Paul Gross was born on April 30, 1959, and qualified to be a senior.  Paul was named an officer of the Order of Canada, linked to impressive work with Due South (The University of Alberta). To learn more about Paul Gross, go here.  

While Gross was an “army brat” with his father having served in the Canadian Army, Sir William Golding was a naval officer who served during World War 11. Both provided powerful insights into the brighter and darker aspects of the human spirit. Gross offered a storied account of challenges in working with law enforcement, and being a veteran; you might enjoy Due South. This series is accessible for free on CBC Gem. For more information about Sir William Golding, proceed here.

Rights are reflected in varying conventions and practices. Fundamental human rights range from non-coerced labour and decent working conditions to a healthy planet. Human rights and needs include and are not limited to age, biological, economic, educational, ethnic, financial, gender, geopolitical, language, legal, psychological, religious, social, technical, and other status.

All individuals, including but not limited to people with disabilities, who struggle with literacy levels, and poverty, and who live in rural, city and other locations, are rights holders. Read more, for example, under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at the United Nations.

People have been challenged in so many ways that they may not self-identify as disadvantaged. However, you could know someone who meets this description and needs your support.

Thank you: Gross, David Marciano, YouTube,  CBC Gem, and other contributors, for making these links possible and to you for taking the time to view them.
