From the editor

Goodbye 2020! Happy 2021!

Let’s all hope, with faith, for better times and good health for everyone, in this coming year.

We open this issue with an interview by Alethéa Mantovani with actor Tony Ramos. He tells us about his career, family and plans for the coming years.

While we’re on the subject of podcasts, Wave has just launched a new, free-to-access online series: Ontario isn’t just Toronto. They are audio interviews with ten Brazilians, who tell us about their life experiences in cities in the province of Ontario. Listen to Episode #1 with Maya Mendes, who tells us why she chose to leave Toronto for the city of Welland. Read a little about Welland here in this issue, in the article by Ana Carolina Botelho. (Also listen to Episode #2, with Rita Izume, about Sudbury)

One of the great hallmarks of Canadian culture is volunteer work, and this is the subject addressed by Eder Pessalacia. In the area of technology, Arthur Vianna interviews Brazilian Maria Júlia Guimarães, from Montreal, who tells us about her “smart gloves” project, to help people with Raynaut syndrome, an invisible disease that affects people from all over the world . Flávia Zancope addresses a delicate but important subject: wills in Canada.

Another novelty that we bring in this edition is the pre-launch of a new section: WAVE KIDS. Ana Carolina Botelho brings us a poem-message “O Natal na Fazenda” aimed at children. Let’s celebrate with lightness and imagination, together with our children, the Festivities of 2020. Stay tuned for new launches at WAVE KIDS. Recipe for this issue? Bacalhau à Natas, by Brazilian Chef John Varella.

And, as always, take a look at our Marketplace section and find out about Brazilian and Portuguese services in Canada. There is always news in this section. Happy reading and Happy New Year!
