happen to believe that airports have a unique opportunity to engage those around us and welcome newcomers to the neighbourhood. After all, our surrounding communities rely on one another to grow and thrive, and without one, we do not have the other.

I believe that if institutions create greater educational and economic opportunities for women, we would immediately begin to see the positive impact on society.

Now that the Trans Pacific Partnership has been signed, maybe we can have the honest, open and transparent debate that Canadians were denied during the federal election -- and which the new Liberal government in Ottawa has promised. So, let's have that debate. There's certainly a lot to talk about.
The environmental issue of our time is climate change, and Canada's government under the leadership of Stephen Harper has failed at every opportunity to address this issue. Does this failure mean that the last decade has been a failure for the environment? No. Fortunately, there has been leadership elsewhere.

With his economic legacy under fire during the debate, Conservative Leader Stephen Harper quickly leaned on a talking point that has become one of his favourites on the campaign trail.
Everybody is likely aware that you can buy things used as an alternative to new and save a few bucks. But until now, few of us realized that the second-hand economy significantly contributes to Canada's GDP, creates jobs and reduces the environmental harm of rampant consumerism -- and the potential for further contributions is as easy as it is vast.
OTTAWA - The Harper government passed up conducting its own internal analysis on the job-creation potential of its $550-million small-business job credit, relying instead on numbers produced by an int...
