Can you become a dog? Yes, I said, I can do a dog. “No, youngster,” the bell-bottomed festooned director of a play at Neptune Theatre insisted in the glorious, waning days of a 1972 Halifax summertime, “I asked you if you can become a dog. There is a difference.”

I apologized, and immediately pledged to make it right. Not only have we made a point of deliberately including women in every issue since, but we’re dedicating our January 2017 edition to celebrating women in business.
