The decision by Justin Trudeau to refuse to answer questions from Sun Media reporters -- in the aftermath of a lame, offensive diatribe by one of their television personalities -- sparks an interesting debate about the media and its relationship with our elected representatives. I'm not entirely sure where I stand on Trudeau's decision, other than to raise the following questions: How disreputable does a "news" organization have to be before a politician's decision to boycott would be palatable?
The Admissions Committee Law, for example -- which was recently upheld by the Israeli Supreme Court -- legalizes racial segregation. According to this law, 43 per cent of Israeli residential areas are legally entitled to deny entrance to Palestinian Arab citizens of the Israeli state. Most of this land, to which the Palestinians are not welcome, was originally confiscated from Palestinian refugees.
Chow has dangerously slipped too fast and too far in polling for a miraculous rebound in such a scant time frame. Voters are gridlocked, stranded and unapologetic in demanding expedited change from Day 1. Chow's ideas are too late, too small and too old school for this electorate.
Public transit alone will not solve our congestion problems or improve the health of our cities. Here then is a selection of transit solutions NOT making headlines in Toronto's municipal elections.
Earlier this week over 600,000 people took to the streets to make their voices heard on the urgency for climate action. There is no reason why we shouldn't feel the same level of determination to eliminate nuclear weapons. The stakes are equally as high.
In an age when superstars think they're bigger than the team, and the ownership, Derek Jeter knew otherwise. Even a 14-time all-star was still an employee, and George Steinbrenner, until he passed away in 2010, was the boss. Jeter revered the boss, but also managed to connect him with the crowd.
You probably possess at least a few items with which you're tired? Or perhaps you've spotted a tempting piece of junk furniture in a thrift store that could be somehow transformed. As we oft' opine: "It's not how much money you spend, rather how you spend it that makes the biggest difference."
When the students at Kisaruni All-Girls Secondary School in rural Kenya had the opportunity to set their school hours, they pushed the limits. The girls begin their studies each morning at 4:45 a.m. and end at 10 p.m., with classroom instruction from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The grumbling resentment toward schoolwork that typifies the North American high-school experience seemed, well, positively lame, compared to the Kenyan girls' fierce dedication to learning.
On September 19, tens of thousands of Canadians lined up outside Apple stores as the much-desired iPhone 6 was released to the public. Despite pre-orders being available, many Canadians would rather pick up their new device in-store, rather than buying online.
In Douglas Anthony Cooper's Sept. 25 column, there are errors of fact about me. More important, the column contains serious accusations against the publisher of Animals24-7.org, Merritt Clifton. Clifton is North America's primary source for statistical information on maulings, maimings and dogbite-related fatalities according to breed.
Working in Alberta, the belly of the tar sands beast, the odds are often overwhelming but, over the past few months, something has changed. The resistance to the tar sands has not only grown in leaps and bounds, it is changing the dynamics of the entire fight.
To the police officers reading this I have a message for you: You are strong. Getting help is not a sign of weakness: it is a sign of strength. Please do not suffer alone, just as you expect civilians to seek you out for help you yourselves must also get help and its OK to do so.
Taking accountability for yourself and your work means accepting the good along with the bad. If you own up to your mistakes, why shouldn't you own up to your victories? Here's how to start getting over the fear of healthy self-promotion.
Whatever the reasons for this epidemic, there are a few signs of hope. Like the common cold and flu, infection is entirely preventable by washing the hands with soap and water as well as regularly disinfecting surfaces. Should an infection occur, there is still only a small chance it could get worse;
Perhaps the most successful documentary photographer in American history was Lewis Hine, who was born 140 years ago this week. He may be less well-known than other muckraking journalists of his generation, but his work was a key part of the Progressive Era reform movement that made America a more humane society.
TWU's statutory object is to provide a university education to persons of any creed. It is the BC legislature which has enacted the statute which uses the mandatory "shall" when articulating the requirement that TWU's education be provided to persons of "any creed". It went on to expressly state that TWU's Bylaws must not include anything "that is in conflict with this Act".
The overall benefit to Canada are such that even the New Democratic Party, which has historically been opposed to free trade agreements, has announced its support for this deal that is expected to increase Canadian exports by 32% and add $1.7B to our economy.
After he created the new menu items, Corbin brought the food to the kids for a taste test. Not surprisingly, the students were happy with the results. Chicken lollipops rolled in crushed vegetable chips and baked in the oven, oven baked panko-crusted zucchini, kale Caesar salad made with a lighter dressing, and black bean and chicken tostadas were a few of the selections.
There is only one way that any one of you, any one of your companies, or any piece of your work can be considered a "brand." And that's if people recognize it's you... and how you differ from others. So whether it's a multi-million dollar logo or a barely legible cursive scrawl, the power is in your hands.
Two weeks ago, Ezra Levant went on a heated, televised tirade where he criticized Justin Trudeau for supposedly "photobombing" a wedding. Levant, most notably, called Justin's father Pierre a "slut," and insinuated similar things about Justin's mother, Margaret Sinclair.
Merck could need to defend itself in Congress: The staff of representative Bill Posey (R-Fla) -- a longstanding critic of the CDC interested in an alleged link between vaccines and autism -- is now reviewing some 1,000 documents that the CDC whistleblower turned over to them.
In one expert move, he has built a trust and accountability economy within his business. Employees must be really happy with this change. More importantly they must feel like senior management trusts them to do the right thing and this could deliver even better results and continued happiness (even in tough times).
While the world's attention has been focused on the combined efforts of Arab and U.S. forces attacking the Islamic State positions in Iraq and Syria, there is unfolding in Lebanon, a third front in the war against this violent extremist group. The threat of IS poses an existential challenge that must not be ignored.
