I want to tell you a story about discrimination. It is a story that has been told for years by people living on reserves like the one where I live. Now a document prepared by federal bureaucrats has been released that describes the yawning gaps between social services provided to Aboriginal people living on reserves and everyone else. We are experiencing a slow motion march towards second-class citizenship.

Aboriginal people on reserves are asking for comparable services as other Canadians. This is not too much to demand.

To borrow a popular internet meme, what if I told you we could build suburbs that preserved the natural landscape, had super energy efficient homes, built a sense of community and had no vinyl siding. Well we can, and the neighborhood of Echohaven, in the northwest community of Rocky Ridge in Calgary is doing precisely that. The homes of Echohaven must be super energy efficient, collect rainwater and are located in an oasis of nature. Echohaven has turned the modern process of building a neighbourhood on its ear
By birth, I'm Canadian, and by choice I'm living in Australia, having moved to Sydney several years ago. I'm often fielding questions from friends and family back home on what part of my adoptive country would be best for them to visit as most don't know where to start. Here's my guide to Australia for all types of travelers.
What should women expect in terms of a financial plan? The plan should include a cash flow projection -- this means how much money you earn and spend in a month, a net worth statement -- which are your assets minus your liabilities, as well as a projection of your net worth throughout their lifetime.
Medicine Hat has had no fires and Clugston says they are keeping their hands on the rudder.
