In book reviews, Contact Information, Creative Writing, Culture, Disability, Education, Environment, Events, Health, Living, Media Writing, Religion, Technology, travel, Writing (all kinds) on November 30, 2010 at 10:36 AM

TORONTO, Sept. 20 /CNW/ – There are two days until Parliament decides whether or not to terminate Bill C-391. If the gun registry comes to an end, Canadians will no longer be expected to register the 7 million firearms that exist in Canada, thereby depriving Canadians of a vital public safety, public health and violence prevention tool. The White Ribbon Campaign is optimistic that private members Bill C-391 will be struck down, given recent news that some members of parliament have found sufficient votes to do so. Nonetheless, while there is confidence that the votes are there, this is no time for complacency. Read the rest of this entry »

What’s the dirty little secret about spousal immigration sponsorships in Canada? Many Canadians are being duped into marriage, not for love, but for residency. The real kicker is, even if the fraud is discovered, the fraudsters are not deported from Canada — and the victims are financially responsible for them for three years! These are the startling facts introduced in True Love or Marriage Fraud?

Certainly no one would expect elementary and secondary students to instantly name these important historic figures in Canada, except maybe some of Canada’s top teachers.

I took the few hours’ bus drive from Montreal up to Chicoutimi, a Québécois town, to learn French. Before I left I haggled with myself about what to do with my hair. Chicoutimi was not known for being a cosmopolitan place, and I had heard a lot more about it being the heart of separatist politics, than a hot spot for good black beauty shops. The last thing I was going to do was let some white hairdresser who had never even touched black hair before do anything to my head. Wearing braids seemed to be the obvious choice, but I had worn them for years, and frankly, I was sick of the time it took to put them in, the time it took to take them out, and the scratching of my scalp in between.

I held my Granny’s hand as we walked down the street to the church for the last Sunday. We were on a northbound Toronto street heading uphill to an eastbound avenue. The bakery behind us was masking the smell of garbage as we passed by the stuffed green and black bags balanced on the curb. Sweat spotted my temples. It was hot for an August morning before global warming. Ever since Granny had come from St.Vincent & the Grenadines, It was like she had brought the heat with her. I couldn’t remember a hotter summer. She was panting with every step. She never wanted to admit that the walk to the church was hard for her, so she complained about everything else instead.

Light Vehicle Sales – October 2010

SAAR – Monthly Canadian sales

Attached are light vehicle sales for the month of October and year to date. Sales in October were up only 1.4 percent and given the massive amount of incentives in the market this year compared to a year earlier it appears that the vehicle companies are not getting much bang for their buck. That being said October 2010 at 123.2 thousand units was the best October since 2002 ( 134.7K units) and the second best October on record. And this is reflected in the SAAR ( attached ) which came in at 1.61 million units. If you look at the six month trailing average number you will see that each month it is creeping up slightly which is positive for the short term outlook for vehicle sales in Canada.
