The new technological revolution has created millions of jobs (and that's great!) -- but jobs for who? There is an that assumption that the 'new jobs' which spring from the ashes of the industries they've replaced will be of such a character that the people previously employed as long haul truck drivers or fast food employees will find new employment. The technological revolution is different; the industrial revolution took years to replace entire industries. This one takes months.
Instead of asking how to move more and more crude oil, let's start asking how we can have a cleaner, greener economy that keeps people safe, the environment pristine, and delivers good green jobs. Once you start asking that question two big things become clear.
If you can't picture what that looks like, a quick drive down the Gardiner Expressway will make it very clear. Interest rates are low, renter demand is high and investors are looking for alternate income streams. These combined factors create the perfect condition for purpose-built housing projects to thrive.
It is time we make sure all low-income Canadians are accessing the benefits Parliament has already agreed they deserve. It is incumbent on the government to make sure everyone is aware of the benefits they are due. The CRA needs to provide strong support to ensure barrier-free tax filing for all those in need.
In April, the Alaska Highway News filed an access to information request for a list of the direct award contracts signed during the first stages of the Site C dam construction. The contracts ranged in value from $30,373 to $900,000, but that's only for the awards the utility disclosed.
Sports drinks are marketed as the ideal beverages for optimal exercise and recuperation in energy-sapping hot weather. And energy drinks are supposed to help keep us going when we would ordinarily tire. But don't be fooled.
BEIJING -- Chinese companies, which have long been playing catch-up with their U.S. counterparts, are now leading the way. My time in the U.S. was like stepping backward in time.
While we should applaud the court's decision to suspend this discriminatory ban and infringement of human rights, we ought to come together to ask what led a country like France to act in such a manner. We ought to ask tough questions in order to avoid future occurrences of these types of discrimination.
Your summer vacation is over. You are tanned, well rested and full of energizing memories.You are also ready for your children's back-to-school. The long list of school supplies is full of check marks. They have everything they need. Yay, you did it! But are you ready for your back to work?
Militaries come and go, regimes rise and fall. But the social change that comes from education is irreversible. Every teacher capable of inculcating curiosity in a young mind, every individual who persists in questioning, every student who learns new ideas and spreads them to others, is a menace to the Taliban's plans.
We criticize the athletes' outfits, the colour of their hair, their body art and especially their performance. "Oh, he planted his foot too early on that hurdle!" or "She needs to get a better start so she doesn't fade in the last 20 metres!" and so on. What gives us the right to criticize them? Why do we assume that we "know better"? And more importantly, why do we do this at work, too?
A classic button down shirt is my number one wardrobe essential. It is one of the few wear anywhere and anytime staple pieces, thanks to its versatility. With a few styling changes, a white button down can be worn from day to night and from work to play.
It seems like every year a new tax haven scheme is revealed, provoking the ire of Canadians... only to fade from the news a few months later. As long as politicians will be timid and fearful of using their power, Canadians have little hope of seeing the issue of tax evasion or aggressive tax avoidance being addressed seriously by their politicians.
You must have noticed how these lists have been getting longer each year. You recall that 30 years ago, school supply lists were quite short, perhaps just two items: pencil crayons and a geometry set. But for a number of years now, the lists have become very long and often include two types of paper: photocopying and toilet.
The Rio Olympics have now come to a close, but here's a satirical spectator sport for those of us who were frustrated by the nightly highlight reels belittling female athletes. It's called "Olympic media sexism bingo." Comedian Megan Ford posted the game card on her Twitter account.
It has been one year since South Sudan signed a peace deal to end 20-months of conflict in the world's newest country. But with renewed violent clashes in July and mass internal displacement, long-term peace and stability remains uncertain. These South Sudanese children share what peace means to them.
We need to talk about her. That employee who has been at the organization for just a year or two and is already doing the work of someone several levels above her current pay band. Despite this woman's outstanding contributions, you haven't promoted her or given her a raise. It's not fair, and you know it.
Prenups don't have to be all one-sided in favour of the family that wants to protect hard-earned assets. I find that bringing fairness and a balanced approach will often allow the young couple to reach a satisfactory agreement.
Earlier this year, a group of cyber criminals targeted two Canadian financial institutions with a hybrid type of malware, GozNym. The first time GozNym was ever seen, it stole millions of dollars from the unnamed Canadian financial institutions along with several U.S. banks.
Climate change is a complex problem, one that touches on so many parts of our lives. It links greenhouse gases with extreme heat, worsens medical conditions like asthma and COPD, and demands we change our approach to transportation and power generation.
An area in urgent need of attention is the continuing mishandling of judicial appointments and the government's astonishing neglect of Atlantic Canada, where I am proud to be from. The Liberals hold all 32 federal seats and all four provincial governments in Atlantic Canada. One would think some gratitude might result.
I could talk about periods all day but today I'm going to focus the menstrual cycle and dating. Imagine tracking these days and realigning your schedule to ensure you have time to give yourself space, love, baths, hot water bottles, romantic movies to cry your face off to privately.
Jason Kenney has assured Albertans that even though his campaign isn't obligated to follow the rules everything would be above board. However, Kenney's campaign has chosen to go with the least transparent organizational structure available and Kenney has publicly misidentified Unite Alberta as a non-profit.
