NICHOLAS MERCER: Michael James has made a career out of illusion
Michael James was sitting in his parents' home in Corner Brook doing something a lot of kids did at the age of 7. He was sitting in front of the television watching The Muppets. Amidst the puppet hi-jinx that was likely unfolding on the ...
GARY SHAW: A glimpse into the muskrat way of life
