Beef Producers: Stewards of the land, for now and for the future

April 2010 – For most of us Earth Day comes just once a year. Sure we recycle, turn lights out when leaving a room, use cold water to do our laundry and other such things in the name of conservation. But how many of us think about our direct impact on the land as part of our daily lives? How many people do you know whose livelihood, and that of future generations, is directly affected by how they do their jobs every day?

Going for Healthy Living Gold – Get Inspired by the 2010 Winter Games

By Dr. David Butler-Jones MD, Chief Public Health Officer of Canada

With the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Vancouver just a matter of weeks away, many of us are already planning our television-viewing schedules to ensure we don’t miss any of our favourite events or athletes. Yet, while our athletes are striving to reach gold, the majority of Canadians are not active enough for good health. With obesity rates at an all-time high, the importance of daily physical activity and healthy eating cannot be stressed enough.
