Roughly 2,800 Syrians have so far made it to Quebec.
All of Quebec's so-called institutional childcare centres are full.

"An impressive traveller captured in full flight."
Chef Danny Hassell (formerly of Buca, Bar Buca) and Chef Joseph Awad (formerly of Martin Picard's Cabane à sucre/Sugar Shack), have merged the flavours of Italy and Quebec. And if that unique pairing hasn't already piqued diners' interest, Parcae has another lure to draw in the crowds: its impeccable wine list.
"We're trying to create a solution to a problem that doesn't exist."
This was part of the company's plan to go paperless.
The system moved into Canada from the United States, where it had spawned deadly tornadoes and caused more than 2,800 flight cancellations.

Take a gander at the government's economic report cards and one thing becomes readily apparent: an almost virtual absence of inter-provincial comparisons. There's a good reason for that. Compared to Alberta, Ontario and Quebec, B.C. doesn't always stack up so well.
Canada's second largest city has so much to offer, you'll find it hard to pack it all into less than a week, but for a quick two-day trip, here are some fantastique stops to make.

Culinary travel should always include exploring the various neighbourhoods and districts in search of authentic experiences. To meet and eat with the locals you must go to where they live.
We desperately need universal coverage for a full array of health care goods and services -- pharmaceuticals, mental health services, home care and out-of-hospital diagnostics. Canada is unique among OECD countries in the paucity of what it covers on a universal basis despite falling in the top quartile of countries in levels of per capita health spending.

Until this law was passed, there was no distinction between a car and a cat in terms of legal rights. Anyone who has ever lived with a pet knows that animals experience emotions and feel both physical and psychological pain, but this is the first time in North America that these basic truths have been entrenched in law.
The prospect of considering expanded blocking for copyright purposes validates the fears of civil liberties groups that the introduction of blocking requirements invariably expands to cover a wider net of content. Canadian copyright was already on track for a boisterous debate in the coming years with changes such as copyright term extension mandated by the Trans Pacific Partnership and a review of the law scheduled for 2017. If government officials envision adding VPN usage, access to U.S. Netflix and website blocking to the list of issues, copyright could emerge as one of the government's most difficult and controversial issues.
The public is justified in asking our politicians what taxpayers will receive in response. Is this going to be another report that sits on a shelf, or will the political level now address the systemic issues that gave rise to the rot and corruption that so enthralled those who followed the proceedings?

The only chance to save medicare in Quebec is a direct intervention of the federal government. We, doctors and experts, ask the new prime Minister of Canada and the federal Minister of Health to enforce the Canadian Health Act in Quebec and to cut federal health transfers until Quebec conforms.
My motto is and always has been "don't die before you are dead." This tenet factors into every decision I make from whether or not to go to the gym on a rainy day (when consuming cookies and cocoa loo...

I decided to take our littles on an odyssey of our own, one they will recall with fondness one day (I hope). Our plan was simple: to ride the rails east from Toronto's Union Station to Montreal and spend several days exploring the historical streets.

Medicare is a defining program and a source of enduring commitment from coast to coast, and all political parties claim to support the Canada Health Act. Why are we not hearing resounding denouncement of Minister Barrette's plan to "normalize" user fees from our federal politicians?
Not only will I have to pay more than double the fee I am currently paying, other kids in the same daycare with families that have a lower income base will still pay $7.30 for the exact same service that my kids are getting. I already pay more in taxes, why do I have to pay more for the exact same service?
Commerce is a desirable economic activity, but it should never force us to renounce our fundamental values. Democracy and due process of law, based on humanistic values are way above the dollar sign. The legal basis of the lawsuit of Lone Pine are incompatible with the principles of a free democratic society.

Remember that a few years ago, the Harper government fired Linda Keen, then President of the CNSC, because she questioned the safety of the Chalk River reactor, which produces bio-medical isotopes. By firing a person who had as her mandate the safety of citizens in nuclear matters, and who had the courage to question the laxity of nuclear industry safety, has the CNSC and the Canadian government truly protected the public?

Caught up in its contradictions, the NDP hopes nobody will notice. There is the Sherbrooke Declaration NDP, which promises a condition-free right to opt out for the Government of Quebec. And then there is the centralist NDP, which unilaterally sets its childcare plan according to a rigid model incompatible with the contemporary practice of Canadian federalism.
It's decorative gourd season! Let's pumpkin spice literally everything! And hey, while we're at it, let's get out of the city to find our own great pumpkins and crisp apples, sip local ciders and ice wines, sample all the pies, and enjoy autumn's glorious show before the snow falls.
In response to the ongoing Syrian refugee crisis, our current Canadian government has reluctantly offered some support. We shall, according to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, accept 10,000 refugees over the next three years. As medical students committed to global health, we call into question this lukewarm commitment to such a pressing crisis and call for stronger commitments in line with Canada's values.
