Canadian, U.S. Cities Sound Similar Notes On Infrastructure Funding

| Posted 12.03.2012 | Canada British Columbia

The New American City being held this week in Kansas City, Mo. will draw business and local government leaders from more than 50 U.S. and Canadian cities.

Kate Middleton Pregnancy: Happy Royal News Turns Into Macabre State Of Affairs

| Posted 12.07.2012 | Canada British Columbia

What a mess. It was inevitable that Kate's pregnancy would have given birth to breathless media coverage and celebration whenever it was divulged. It should have been happy, frothy, celebrity news. Instead, a woman going through a very rough, early pregnancy goes to hospital and the whole world knows about it. A nurse, fooled by broadcasters, mistakenly transfers a call that should have been hung up on, and is found dead days later. It is a sad, macabre state of affairs.
