Seeing Masonic Temples targeted for destruction is so heartbreaking. Today (Mar 30th, 2021) three Masonic Temples were damaged via arson. No one is injured but the damage is extensive; one Masonic Temple being completely destroyed. The destruction affects not only the Mason Lodge but also the Shriners, a Harvest Food Bank, and a Cancer Drivers programs.
The three Masonic Temples are: 1) Lynn Valley Lodge Masonic Centre (1371 Lynn Valley Rd); 2) North Vancouver Masonic Centre (1142 Lonsdale Avenue); and 3) Park Lodge Masonic Hall (East 29th Avenue).
A suspect is in custody and, per reports, police are guarding Masonic Temples in the area. As soon as I learn how/where to send financial support/well-wishes, I will advise accordingly.

On January 28th, 2021 Cameron Adamson, facilitator of the Square & Compass Podcast, will appear on The Masonic Roundtable!
This appearance comes after Square & Compass was honoured to host on its podcast two members of The Masonic Roundtable; W. Bro. Jason Richards and Bro. Juan Sepulvedo.
The Masonic presence within the podcast/digital space is rapidly expanding, and Square & Compass is excited to discuss this expansion (its possible consequences for the Craft, the ability to monetize/professionalize this expansion) on The Masonic Roundtable.
See below for links to the Square & Compass episodes featuring The Masonic Roundtable! I have also included a link to The Masonic Roundtable's YouTube Channel.
Square & Compass is very proud to feature a most distinguished Mason and man, W. Bro. Martin Faulks (Lewis Masonic, General Manager).
You can find the full video on YouTube. You can find the full audio on Podbean, and most major podcast platforms. Square & Compass has also created several informative clips!
Square & Compass very much enjoyed the opportunity to speak with Bro. Faulks The discussion is illuminating, for both Mason and non-Mason alike!
Square & Compass is excited to announce that, as of January 2021, it is publishing stories via Medium.com.
Square & Compass' mission is to (in a professional manner) promote Freemasonry and Masonic Education.
It has progressed within its mission via the Square & Compass Podcast, historical Masonic Temple tours, and developing unique Masonic products.
Publishing on Medium.com is another step in this progression. Publishing on medium.com will allow Square & Compass to bring Masonic insights and ideas via written articles and stories.
Square & Compass also intends to use Medium.com to publish stories related to general interest. Part of being a Freemason is having a diverse range of pursuits an interests; and taking the time to research those interests.
Those interests can be intellectual (i.e. the liberal arts and sciences) or popular. I, particularly, love horror movies, and look forward to publishing stories on them.
Square & Compass has published two Masonic stories so far, and you can find them here and here.
If anyone (Mason or otherwise) has any topics about which they would like Square & Compass to publish a story, please let Square & Compass know!
