B.C. has an impressive track record for slowing the spread of HIV/AIDs in the province. The B.C. centre created a treatment as prevention strategy which provides widespread access to HIV testing, care, support and treatment.
Just as a gardener may imagine what will emerge in the summer after the planting of new seeds in the spring, I too imagine what could emerge in our province in the future.
While an offer with no subjects could certainly be more attractive to the seller, I do not advise my mortgage clients to go in without subjects due to the potential risks involved.
Bill C-51 is an omnibus anti-terrorism bill that grants CSIS new information sharing powers and converts CSIS from a covert intelligence gathering organization to a covert enforcement agency. Ms. Soapbox is here to offer four simple suggestions to keep you out of trouble when Stephen Harper's majority government finally passes this monstrous piece of legislation.
Canadian teachers love their students and want only the best for them. Our teachers work very hard and conscientiously, but often their best efforts are thwarted by a system that fails to give them adequate training, assigns them to teach subjects they aren't qualified to teach, micromanages their teaching methods and materials, and largely ignores their input. Canadian teachers are not getting the support they need and deserve. But it doesn't have to be this way. Here's how four other countries support their teachers' professionalism and give them a voice.
It is actually five bills rolled into one. Each part contains provisions I can only describe as dangerous. It is more than anti-terrorism, as the range of activities covered by a new and sweeping definition of "threats to the security of Canada" in the information sharing section of the bill covers far more than terrorism. It could plausibly cover just about anything, and certainly would cover those opposing pipelines and tankers.
I am not the only one. Do a little Googling and you will find a small but devoted group of Jeopardy fans who have sustained the show since its first episode aired 51 years ago. And why do we care so much?
Gone are the days of silver bullet solutions. A personal car is great for many situations, but not for every trip; there are better tools available. The upcoming transit referendum is offering all of us an opportunity to vote for a better toolbox.
It is commendable that your government has balanced three consecutive provincial budgets, but British Columbians (and our children in particular) are hardly better off because of it.
Changing the way we move through cities is a critical step in reducing carbon emissions. The most direct way to accomplish this is to provide urbanites with reliable alternatives to automobile travel. A two-car household that replaces one vehicle with alternative transportation can cut its annual emissions by 10 per cent.
For men and woman you're looking for clothing that allows your body to move through poses without restricting your flow. Clothes that incorporate stretch and are cut close to the body are normally a good option. Good quality yoga apparel should have stretch recovery, meaning the material will bounce back and not bag out after use.
Like it or not, this referendum is the meal that is being served on the table.
B.C. may very well have some of the lowest personal income tax rates in Canada, but that doesn't mean the lowest tax bill. So doing that "lowest personal income tax" thing is a cute trick, but at the end of the day it's a trick. And not a particularly empathetic one.
Why do I think the Yes side can win? Of the dozens of conversations I have had about the congestion tax, the opposition to voting yes is surprisingly soft. I am convinced that most voters are seeking a reason to back the tax.
I'm skinny. Always have been. My ribs show through my skin, too. I'm also healthy. I know that according to society, my body fits the ideal. But I also know that doesn't make me better than anyone else. It doesn't make me immune to criticism, either. Being called too skinny, is just as hurtful as being called too big.
If you are a voter who has been feeling like your family's needs have been ignored given the BC Liberals' choices for the past 14 years, consider joining the recall effort.
