Cross-Border Partnership Benefits Conservation

Cross-Border Partnership Benefits Conservation

There has been a lot of interest and coverage in recent days about close relations between Canada and the United States and meetings between our respective political leaders to discuss issues of mutual interest.

Among these many common issues, one area where there has been friendship and considerable goodwill for more than 30 years is the shared pursuit of conservation. It is a huge success story that has involved vision and partnership.

This St. Patrick’s Day, defy convention and celebrate snakes!

This St. Patrick’s Day, defy convention and celebrate snakes!

For many of us, Saint Patrick is known as the protector of the rolling hills of Ireland. Every year North Americans join in celebrating his legendary story.

The green beer, shamrocks and other verdant regalia common of the current St. Paddy’s Day are actually meant to celebrate the story of St. Patrick. Folklore has it that after 40 days of fasting and wearing a garment of green, he drove the snakes out of Ireland and chased them into the sea.

Employee appreciation: A little respect goes a long way

Employee appreciation: A little respect goes a long way

With a little effort, attention and patience you can create an atmosphere where respect grows. Below are a few tips on how you can help your workplace to function at its best.

The cost of bullying is high: it can shatter confidence, inflict emotional stress, and trigger depression in its victims. If it seeps into the workplace it can get in the way of employee concentration, productivity and morale.

Recognize co-workers’ achievements and help. Offer praise to co-workers for a job well done or a simple, "thanks" if they pitched in to make your work a little easier. Show your appreciation and watch how a few simple words can improve relations and make someone's day.

Who Killed Canada Post’s Banking Study?

Who Killed Canada Post’s Banking Study?

Opinion Editorial, March 21, 2014

With its immense network stretching across the country – even in the tiniest, most remote communities - a public post office is the perfect way to deliver financial services to those who need them the most. 

Canada Post and the Conservatives want to take away door-to-door delivery and hit small businesses, charities and individuals with steep postage hikes. This will hurt people, destroy public postal service and pave the way for privatization. What other options do we have to address declines in traditional mail?
