Wave 85 – Read on this issue


Happy Holidays! Happy New Year!

In this issue Arhur Vianna interviews MP Julie Dzerowicz. Daughter of immigrants, Julie represents the Davenport area in Toronto, a region of Portuguese and Latino immigrants where most of the Brazilian community of Canada lives.

Alethéa Mantovani talks with the Italian trio Il Volo, as they come to the 10 year mark in their career. As part of the celebrations, they will do a mega show in Toronto in 2020.

The end of the year, is always a period of reflection and decision-making and it often arouses feelings of loneliness. We approach the subject of mental health, from the perspective of the elderly and the fragility of low-income elderly in Canada.

This edition has a special focus on the Canadian prairie: Saskatchewan and Manitoba. We look at aspects of tourism and discuss local communities, associations and Brazilian artists.

The recipe of the time? Natalina, of course. Brazilian chef Guga Rocha, who lived in Canada a few years ago, talks about his culinary experience and shares with us a delicious Brazilian recipe from Tapioca Natalina.

And, as always, be sure to check out the Marketplace section. We are always updating the list of professionals and services. Support the Portuguese-Brazilian community. After all, we all speak the same language!

Last but not least, all of us on the Wave magazine team would like to thank Regina Filippov for her dedication and contribution, not only to this publication, but to the entire Brazilian community in Canada. After more than 15 years of volunteer work at Wave magazine (yes, volunteer work) Regina is stepping aside and retiring from her official duties at the board of BRZ, Wave’s publisher. “It’s time to pass the baton” she says.

Regina, for your magnificent work, dedication and entrepreneurship we can only say one word, that’s worth a thousand: THANKS!
