Kathryn Aedy. Kathryn’s most frequently asked question has always been ‘Why?’, with ‘How?’ as a close second. She finds that accurately answering either has a lot to do with perspective (and gaining as much of it as possible). A descendant of two sets of grandparents who immigrated to Canada, she has lived on four continents to study Radio and Television Arts, Law and Society and Public Policy, and to work on issues of justice relating to gender and disability. She takes pure joy in witnessing unpredictably pleasant interactions between strangers.
