In the online survey of a representative national sample, 40% of Canadians support taking the nickel out of circulation, up four points since a similar Research Co. poll conducted in November 2019. -ResearchCo.Ca
Transgender advocates call out WestJet for forcing passengers to identify as male or female
Transgender advocates across Canada are calling out national airline WestJet for not allowing people to choose X as a gender, instead of male or female, when booking flights. "It is a legal gender marker in our laws, it's a violation of the Charter [of Rights and Freedoms]," said Iz Lloyd, a non-binary person from Halifax who was recently denied boarding a WestJet flight until they conceded to identifying as their sex assigned at birth. Lloyd, who uses the pronoun they, said their passport has an X instead of male or female. Air Canada allows the choice 'other' in addition to male and female on its booking site. Some trans advocates say they'd prefer to see X instead. -CBC News

Being an optimist can add years to your life
Being an optimist could lead to a longer life, according to new research. A large-scale study found those who “always look on the bright side of life” were more likely to make it to the age of 90. The phenomenon applied across racial and ethnic groups, adding to evidence that happiness is good for the body as well as the mind. Lead author Hayami Koga, a PhD candidate at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, believes staying positive is as good for you as exercise. The findings come from a review of 159,255 women in the U.S. tracked for up to 26 years. -StudyFunds.org
