Food inflation isn't going anywhere for now, Loblaw's chairman says.
Shoppers Drug Mart and Loblaws recently made headlines by announcing they will cover medical cannabis for their employees. But the devil is always in the details. While these two chains should be praised for their progressive steps forward, we also need to ask who this coverage is provided for, how much is being covered, as well as how this fits with the overall long-term strategy to position pharmacies as the front-line dispensers of medical cannabis.
Run For Women
The pharmacy chain says it has requested a licence from the federal government.
Physical activity makes us feel happy and more productive. We're more open to learning and more apt to share topics on a run than over a lunch. Perhaps the girls would learn a little more about themselves, be part of something bigger and take away tools to help them in their future.

Six weeks ago, when I thought about the Shoppers Drug Mart OneWalk to Conquer Cancer, it had not even occurred to me that my husband wouldn't be waiting for us at the finish line. He was fighting so hard to conquer his very aggressive lymphoma and by all accounts it seemed he was at least in partial remission.

Though cancer made me see my mom in her worst physical state, I will always remember her as a strong businesswoman and a dedicated banker. She was a woman who paved the way for many in my family who wanted to pursue traditionally male careers, encouraging them to chase their dreams and show the world that women are powerful, too.
Welcome to 2015 -- it's a new year! We all want the year ahead to be the best yet, but that's hard to do if you're feeling under the weather.
