Canada “puffed up” its chest and paraded its patriotism as we celebrated our 150th birthday on July 1. And what a celebration it was! Fireworks, parades, music, and so many other projects that are going on all year. There have been pieces of art created, plays and dances performed – some large projects and some small.

The dreaded arthritic joints make most everything we do just a little bit more difficult as we get older. Did you know that more than 4.6 million Canadians aged 15 years and older report having arthritis? This means, according to the community research and evaluation unit of Arthritis in Canada, one in six adult Canadians live with arthritis.
