Is there a more mushy word in the English language? Hospitality. But, no - we aren't talking about Martha Stewart and which spoon to use for the dessert course. (We haven't a clue....)
This week on Tapestry: a more gritty brand of hospitality. From the woman in Calgary who invites a homeless guy to come and stay ... to refugee homes in Winnipeg and Toronto. We'll also be knocking on doors at a L'Arche community
and at the Munk School of Global Affairs

At L'Arche Daybreak you have Mary Hynes, core member David Harmon, and community leader Carl MacMillan.
