About Hometown
Hometown is a series of blogs about rural and small-town Canada, written by the people who live in those communities. Each one presents a unique experience, challenge or triumph, showcasing opinions on issues that matter, including identity, jobs, environment, childcare, mental health, race and — yes — old-fashioned hometown pride.
