    Teens and adults affected by severe autism do not have enough access to appropriate, affordable education and training opportunities in Ontario. 
  • A moncton teen was punished for wearing halter dress in school. She fights back.
  • When journalist and fatherhood columnist Josh Levs was denied fair parental leave by his employer after his child was born, he fought back—and won. In the process, he became a leading advocate for modern families. In All In, he shows how fatherhood today is far different from previous generations and what it means for our individual lives, families, workplaces, and society. Get the book at JoshLevs.com

About

Jim Richards grew up in both Montreal and Markham, Ontario.  He graduated from radio broadcasting at Loyalist College in Belleville. Jim made several radio stops across the country including Trenton, Fredericton, Halifax and Barrie where he was nominated for medium-market morning show of the year in 1990. From 1992 to 1996, Jim worked at the The Fan 590 in Toronto.  That is where he gave popular CBC TV Host George Stroumboulopoulos his first exposure as an on-air personality. 

In the summer of 1996, he left the Fan to work at Toronto Rock station Q107 and the Rock Radio Network, hosting an overnight rock music program syndicated across Canada. Jim joined NEWSTALK 1010 in 1997 and currently hosts The Jim Richards Show which airs weekdays 1pm to 4pm.  Richards' show falls under many different names like the "Showgram", "The Daytime Friendly", "The Feel-Good Edition" and "The Three Hours of Love."
