Investment: a New Year’s Resolution

Investment: a New Year’s Resolution

By Michael Bourque

In a speech to the Canadian Club last week, Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney called on businesses to invest in Canada now – an action he sees as the most likely to prevent our country from slipping into another recession.

Interestingly, attracting new investment is the primary focus of Canadian manufacturers and exporters right now, and we believe that businesses and governments must work together in order to achieve this end.

Is lung health a woman's war?

Is lung health a woman's war?

By Libby Groff, chair of the Ontario Respiratory Care Society

(NC)--During the women's liberation movement of the 60s and 70s women began lighting up cigarettes as fast as they were burning their bras. Today, women have acquired equality in a way few suspected as tobacco-related lung disease has emerged a critical health issue for women. In fact, by the late 1990s, lung cancer rates in young women overtook that of young men, a disease that kills eight out of every 10 people who develop it.

Make lung health an election issue and save yourself some hard-earned money

Make lung health an election issue and save yourself some hard-earned money

By Kelly Muñoz

Healthcare remains a hot topic in the 2011 provincial election, with good reason.

Over the summer, some prominent universities quietly decided to forgo blanket copyright clearance through Access Copyright for the coming year's academic materials, a radical policy change that leaves students and their professors in need of expert guidance.
