Acetaminophen (Tylenol, Tempra, Anacin) is the top-selling over-the-counter painkiller, available without prescription since the 1950s, yet there have long been serious questions about its safety. Canada and the United States do have warning labels saying the stuff is hard on your liver, but the Canadian ones don't exactly jump out at you, often buried deep in the fine print. Meanwhile, sountries like France and Germany, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, have even begun restricting where you can buy acetaminophen.

According to a recent Globe and Mail article, Andy Pringle, a member of the Toronto Police Services Board (TPSB) has decided to recuse himself from any discussions of the Fords at the board. It raises further questions about Tory's relationship with Pringle both prior to and during this contentious mayoral campaign. It started with a fishing trip...
The Canada Revenue Agency stopped mailing packages to pen-and-paper filers last year as part of a push towards the efficiencies of online filing of personal income tax returns. And from an efficiency perspective, it's hard to argue against the CRA's NETFILE system.

I was raised on a dairy farm in Belledune, a small community on New Brunswick's North Shore. By the time I showed up to school in the fall of 1968, the schoolhouse was bordered by a smelter on one side and a fertilizer plant on the other. I started hearing a little voice inside me saying, "Do something!"
The climate of confrontation and conflict imposes a dreadful toll on teachers. Some say why don't we just give in? Why not simply teach under whatever conditions the government constructs in public schools, collect our pay checks and go home?
We live in a society where it is impossible to live a functional lifestyle and not consume products made from petro-chemicals every single day. As such, the notion that environmentalists -- such as Neil Young for example -- have no right to criticize oil sands developments, pipelines or fracking because they "choose" to heat their homes and drive cars is downright nonsensical.
I recently noticed that for the most part, when I talk about Autism the people around me don't really know what I am talking about. They all seem to have a vague idea about the problem, but no more. I constantly have to repeat the same information. This demonstrates clearly that we still need to educate people about Autism or ASD.
I am becoming more fashion forward. Still, I can get flustered easily and overwhelmed with clothing options so I spoke with an expert. Cate Rodrigue, Brand Manager at Orb Clothing shared with me some good news. There is plenty of casual, comfy (mandatory) and earth-friendly fashion this spring.

My 10-year-old daughter brought math questions home from school that I struggled to answer. I drew a complete blank on how to calculate the perimeter of a rectangle. Yep, I can now conclusively answer the question, "Are you smarter than a fifth grader?" No. No, I am not.
Top quality genus like oak or mahogany often speak for themselves, providing textural and visual return wherever placed. But we aren't slaves to wood. Particularly not pine. We never have been. In actual fact we love painted furniture and see no valid reason why a nice bit of lumber can't be further embellished with solid colour.
Wearing ethnic garb and religious garments to grovel for votes makes for raised eyebrows. Minorities and ethnic voters aren't as interested in visible garbs as much as they are in (in)visible actions. None of these fashion distractions are substitutes for measurable results or genuine respect.

Corey Hart has mostly taken a step back from the frontline music scene since the late 1990s, in favour of raising his young family of four with his wife. Just this week, bowing to his longtime fans' persistent requests, he has also agreed to release his ninth, as yet untitled, studio album.
While most venture north to Jasper in the summer to hike through the magnificent Rockies, there's plenty to do in Jasper in the colder temperatures. And after the skiing, snowshoeing and dog sledding, downtown Jasper is home to many cozy places to warm up on winter nights.
Peter Kent's article "The Truth About Canada's Immigration System" has left me quite shocked, beginning with the headline itself. Peter refers to the government's commitment to resettle refugees. He actually means privately sponsored refugees.

Many of us cannot wait for Mother Nature and journey to one of a plethora of pleasant places famous for their warmth. Amongst the most popular destinations, including Florida, California and the Caribbean, exist some of the most desirable beaches where millions congregate to take in the joys of sun, sea, sand, and unfortunately germs.
China's National People's Congress meet in Beijing Wednesday, with the country's crippling smog, which now looms as a threat to the leadership, high on the agenda. China's air isn't polluted because the technologies to keep it clean are unavailable but because the country lacks a credible regulatory regime that makes polluters pay and rewards investors to innovate. Why does the government target BBQs and individuals instead of the major polluters? Because it knows how to deprive ordinary citizens of their property and their lives. It doesn't know how to regulate an incoherent economy bereft of market discipline.

In every business book in every business school in the world, the mandate of business is solely to maximize profit for shareholders. The rule of the game CEOs of the last 50 years were playing was "profit at all costs." Social impact was something you considered afterwards, maybe. The baby boomers may not have considered people and planet but they raised a generation of self-actualized, mission-based children.
Most of us are not as well aware or informed as we should be before going on vacation, according to a recent survey by Ipsos Reid of over 1,100 Canadians. And it can be way more than a minor inconvenience, as one in five of those who contract this illness can be confined in bed for a day and have symptoms up to five days. Let's see if you can separate the travel myths from facts.
As we celebrate International Women's Day, I want to write about the impact my mother had on me. Like millions of women around the world, my mother worked incredibly hard when I was young. Her main motivation was ensuring my brother and I had opportunities.
