There is another reason why we cannot afford to take much longer to increase conservation and tighten the rules. One major logging company operating in the region is not a member of the Joint Solutions Project. Instead, TimberWest has a long history of opposing increases in conservation and undertaking extremely profit-driven logging operations in the southern-most portion of the Great Bear Rainforest with very little remaining old-growth.
Like every country with an aging population, Canada will have to implement some changes to make sure care continues to be accessible and affordable, but the U.S. model is not the example Ottawa and the provinces should follow.
What would you think if your doctor handed you a prescription that recommended filing your tax returns or applying for food or income benefit programs instead of the usual medicines for high blood pressure or diabetes? You'd probably say the physician was nuts. Tax refunds? Food? What do they have to do with making you healthier?
Language is powerful -- but banning another word from our lexicon is at best a token solution, and at worst misguided. I wish that banning the other B-word would result in improved self-worth for girls everywhere but that simply wouldn't be the case. Instead, let's celebrate fabulously bossy girls.
Though the atmosphere has apparently stabilized and winter will soon be gone for yet another year, for millions of people, this is no time to breathe easy. In the next few weeks, a new kind of trouble will emerge. Dubbed the 'pollen vortex' this rare springtime phenomenon will leave allergy sufferers just as miserable and clambering for the indoors.
It's quite clear that musical tastes change with each generation and so do the outlets which allow music to be heard. I can understand why new age music might not be readily accepted by the older generation. Our ever changing music industry is constantly expanding into various avenues which make it easier for the average singer or talented artist to be discovered.
Tax season has begun. This yearly tradition is dreaded by many Canadians, but it doesn't need to be. Taxes are what keeps our roads paved, our schools running, and our health care free. When we think about the money we give to the government, we don't always realize that our money is going towards things we take for granted every day. So, approach the upcoming tax filing deadline with a positive outlook.

It is important to understand the significance of this experience for young people today. Prom is considered a rite of passage. After close to 15 years of school, prom not only marks the end of secondary school, but an opportunity to celebrate this milestone with friends. For students who choose not to pursue college or university, high school marks the end of their formal education.
But Pauline Marois lost the game to Philippe Couillard. By choosing to openly flaunt the card of an unwanted referendum and sovereign Quebec, she is caught in her own trap. And by inadvertently bringing to light the aspect of her privileged profile, she has fallen out among the province's populace.
When a child's stress levels are too high various systems for thinking and metabolic recovery are compromised. The signs of when this is happening show up in the child's behaviour, or mood, or attention, or for that matter, physical well-being. Canadian children are dealing with far too much stress today.
I recently visited the beautiful city of Vancouver, Canada, where I got an inside look at local fashion. To be specific, I spent a day hopping around to the many boutique clothing stores around the city. And it suffices to say, I was impressed by what I discovered.
When deciding where to live, there's no shortage of considerations, particularly when it comes to the musical tastes of your neighbors. Before movin...
Lying, sometimes even to oneself, being selfish, fearing being alone and stringing somebody along just to feel good about oneself is not acceptable. It is immature.
Your organization has a culture whether you like it or not. The culture is a mood, feeling, and attitude. In our practice we describe culture as the sum total of conversations that happen in your organization and amongst its stakeholders. It is not genetically encoded; your culture can be shaped, evolved, and enhanced. The question is: Can your corporate culture make you money?
Alberta has led all provinces in average annual economic growth over the last 20 years. Our unmatched strengths in agriculture, forestry and petrochemicals have earned us an international reputation but it is the energy sector that is our driving economic force. We are the energy hub in a nation that consistently ranks among the top 10 energy producers in the world. That's huge.
