Pregnant woman chooses doula to guide her

Karen Mcwilliam sat on the floor in front of her client, Shalina Khanna, as she and her husband, Jonathan Hunt, sat cozily on their couch. Hunt handed his wife a tissue to wipe the tears from her eyes, as she explained to Mcwilliam why her mother wouldn’t be able to attend the birth of their first child.

“She primarily takes care of my dad who is not well,” Khanna said.

East York students prepare Remembrance Day program

On Tuesday, Narin Shamasi joined her classmates in the gym at Jackman Avenue Junior Public School in East York.

As a recording played out the music, Narin swung her arms behind her back and then back in front of her chest in a prayer motion; occasionally she froze in a tableau.

“All my life I’ve been waiting for, I’ve been praying for people to say … ‘We don’t want to fight no more,’” the song says.

She was preforming to the song “One Day,” by Matisyahu, a Jewish-American reggae vocalist.

“I always sing the song in my head and then I look at myself as if I’m doing it,” Narin said.
