The subject of this weeks cover package is the shape of medicine to come in the next century. Understandably, Canadians may be more concerned about the state of health care to come in the next week. Across the country, there is an acute shortage of doctors and nurses.

In this issue, Senior Writer Robert Sheppard and Science Editor Mark Nichols look forward to the medical wonders awaiting Canadians over the coming decades. While Nichols concentrates on the benefits likely to arise from scientists’ rapidly growing knowledge of human genetic makeup, Sheppard looks at the hi-tech revolution— the astonishing robotic devices that are beginning to redefine surgery.

We must be talking to two different groups of Canadians because those I talk with shudder to think what would happen to Canada and our Canadian identity if the border vanished (“The vanishing border,” Cover, Dec. 20). As a Canadian temporarily living in the United States, it concerns me that other Canadians see this as an inevitable situation.

They make a powerhouse couple for a new century: King Koss and the boss’s daughter. In New Year’s Eve nuptials near Vail, Colo., Norse speed-skating legend Johann Olav Koss, 31, married Canadian Belinda Stronach, 33, the heir apparent to Frank Stronach’s Magna International auto-parts empire.

From the vantage point of this, my first column of the millennium, it seems appropriate somehow to salute, one final time, the century just past. For me, the professional highlight was my five decades of practising the mad yet exhilarating craft of journalism, mosdy for this magazine.

Howard Mann laughed as he threw himself into the fresh snow. Propping himself up on his elbows, he snapped a photo of his sons, Ben, 10, and Sam, 9, tumbling in snowsuits in front of the Peace Tower in Ottawa, its imposing gothic skeleton reflecting the Christmas lights festooning the surrounding trees.

Countries have their own personalities and, fairly or not, the rest of the world has certain expectations of them. England does not often appear in the same sentence as “fine dining,” nor does Germany and “funny.” In the dying days of the last century, Americans suddenly found themselves making a new and jarring association. This time, it was a most unlikely combination—Canada and terrorism.

Boris Yeltsin's surprise resignation leaves Russia in the hands of a little-known ex-KGB spy

Fred Weir
Even as jokes like that swept their country, Russians were wondering just how radically their lives will change because of Boris Yeltsins shock resignation on New Years Eve. In stepping down after eight years, the ailing, unpopular 68-year-old leader passed the torch to his 47-year-old prime minister and chosen successor, tough-talking ex-KGB spy Vladimir Putin.

Four organizers of the banned Falun Gong spiritual movement were sentenced to prison terms ranging from seven to 18 years—the most severe in a decade for political crimes— in a one-day trial in Beijing. Following the verdict, Chinese police also arrested at least a score of Falun Gong adherents who dared to protest in the capital’s Tiananmen Square, adding to the thousands of followers who have been rounded up since the group was banned as a cult five months ago.

In an era when national politics is producing precious few stars, they are the unlikely new celebrities of the Chrétien capital: the judges. Their appearances gave a frisson of something like glamour to Ottawa’s year-end parties. There was Justice Louise Arbour, seated at a table with Queen Noor of Jordan at a Rideau Hall dinner in celebration of the second anniversary of the treaty to ban land mines, conducting a long, animated conversation with international financier George Soros.

Bruce Wallace
The independent inquiry commissioned by the United Nations into its own handling of the 1994 Rwandan genocide reported last month, and revealed little new about what led to one of the century’s worst mass murders. The inquiry never breached the closed club of the Security Council so we are no wiser about why great powers like the United States and France chose to watch the Hum slaughter of the Tutsi minority on CNN rather than intervening.

Canadian National Railway Co. and Burlington Northern Santa Fe Corp. said they plan to join forces and create the largest railway in North America. The new Montreal-based North American Railways Inc. would be a freight-hauling colossus, with annual revenues of about $18.5 billion and 67,000 workers.

She has always liked mornings, die coziness of routine. So what if the old bones ache a bit more with each new day? The kids are starting to bug her about moving into one of those new seniors’ residences for baby boomers—what an awful designation to carry into your 70s, thought Jeannette T. She’s darned if she’s going to live in something called Elvis House.

It has been called an instruction manual for the species— a “complete guide on how to build and run the human body.” This wondrous work has yet to be published. But by March or April, scientists labouring on the decade-old, $5-billion project to decode humankinds genetic endowment—or genome—will finish what they call a first draft of the historic document.

It is nothing at all like televisions ER. The operating theatre is darkened, so much so that you can barely see the nurses or the surgeon. They flit like ghosts amid the red-blue glare of the television monitors scattered strategically about the room.

A ventilatordependent quadriplegic, Christopher was on life-support and became so depressed he considered shutting off the system.
