It was a chance meeting on a Monday in 1985 that would alter my life path for good. The meeting was with a young man with curly blond hair who, in many ways, looked very much like one of my own teenage sons. I was working at Fleming College at the time, coordinating a government program to help youth who had left high school and lacked job experience.
Lindsay was in the spotlight yesterday when TVO’s flagship show, The Agenda, was in town filming a special basic income episode.
The crew chose the Pie Eyed Monk on Cambridge Street to tape the show, which is still under development as a craft brewery and restaurant.
The three panelists who participated were Mike Perry, executive director of the City of Kawartha Lakes Family Health Team, Zita Devan, founder of A Place Called Home in Lindsay, and Roderick Benns, publisher of The Lindsay Advocate.
