10 June 2008
The Globe and Mail - Canada's role key in Americas, Chilean President says (10 June 2008) Canadians should not underestimate the importance of the role their country can play in development in the Americas, Chilean President Michelle Bachelet said on her current visit to Canada. Ms Bachelet's trip includes a deal signed Monday to send hundreds of Chilean students for technical and graduate studies in Canada, part of an international education plan financed by a new US$6-billion fund created with windfall revenues from high copper prices. Prime Minister Harper visited Chile last year and trumpeted a Canadian re-engagement in the Americas.
The Canadian Press on Canada and Chile widen their free trade agreement (9 June 2008) Chilean President Michelle Bachelet and Prime Minister Harper marked the 10th anniversary of the Canada-Chile free trade agreement by widening the deal to make it easier for two-way investments and to improve market access for industrial and agricultural products between the two countries.
From Canwest News Service reports on this: Prime Minister Harper heaped the praise on visiting President Michelle Bachelet after her speech to several hundred business leaders from both countries. Harper is pursuing similar deals with Peru and Colombia as the one with Chile. Bachelet endorsed Harper's trade-centred ambitions. She also said, Chile shares Canada's commitment to multilateralism as a solution to the world's ills. President Bachelet was freshly elected as the first president of the recently founded South American Union of Nations. Chile has the highest per capita income in the hemisphere after Canada. Canada is the third-largest investor in Chile today. With 54 signed FTAs (more than any other country), Chile has duty-free access to the world's main markets, including the US, the EU, China and Mexico, among others.
The Financial Post - Canada cited as bright spot in tough global economy (10 June 2008) The solid state of Canada's economy and financial system emerged as one of the few positives as The International Economic Forum of the Americas kicked off Monday in Montreal. Amid the gloom, Canada got upbeat reviews. Among them, International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn, said that Canada has earned a 'rather optimistic' outlook from the IMF, with forecast GDP growth of between 1% and 2% in 2008, outpacing most countries.
The Globe and Mail on positive hiring survey (10 June 2008) Almost a quarter of employers plan to boost payrolls this summer, while just 3 per cent anticipate job cuts, according to Manpower Canada's employment outlook, based on a survey of about 1,700 employers. Seventy per cent see no change in staffing levels. The survey, conducted mid-April, shows surprisingly little souring since the previous quarter. Nowhere are hiring intentions stronger than in Atlantic Canada. The region 'is predicted to have a healthy quarter, particularly in St Johns,' Lori Rogers, vice-president of operations for Manpower Canada, said. Nearly a third of employers—29 per cent—in the eastern provinces expect to boost their headcount this summer.
The Canadian Press - Ont. government invests $18M in new nanotech and quantum computing centre (9 June 2008) Ontario is investing C$18-million into nanotechnology and quantum computing research. The funds will go towards the new Quantum-Nano Centre at the University of Waterloo. Premier Dalton McGuinty made the announcement Monday at the groundbreaking for the C$160-million facility. McGuinty says the money will help the centre buy new research equipment. Considered the first of its kind in the world, the centre will house the university's Institute for Quantum Computing, the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology, and its undergraduate programme in nanotechnology engineering.
CBC News - Charlottetown top city in public transit growth (10 June 2008) Charlottetown recorded the single largest year-over-year per centage increase in public transit ridership in the country last year, according to the Canadian Urban Transit Association. The national average increase in public transit use was just over three per cent, but in Charlottetown, 25.5 per cent more people hopped on a bus in 2007 than the previous year. More Canadians are choosing to use public transit because of a growing awareness that it can ease traffic congestion and cut urban pollution, said association chair Steve New.
The Toronto Star on Rouge Park rehabilitation plan approved (9 June 2008) The Rouge Park Alliance approved a seven-year rehabilitation plan for the park, which protects a large portion of the Greater Toronto Area's (GTA) rare green space. Under the plan, about 700 hectares of land will be converted from farmland and struggling natural area to lush forest and meadow. 'I think the big-picture objective is to have a significant green corridor that connects (Lake Ontario) with the (Oak Ridges) Moraine, for all sorts of ecological reasons, said Brian Denney, chief administrative officer for the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), which holds title to most of the land.
The Rouge Park Alliance includes the TRCA and all levels of government. Denney said the rehabilitation will welcome back a broader range of native wildlife species and improve the water quality of the lake. Denney stressed that maintaining an agricultural presence in the park is a priority, especially given the growing awareness of the environmental benefits of local food. That's why a portion of the land will be set aside for agriculture. Current plans designate 318 of the park's 4,650 hectares for agriculture. 'Clearly one of the priorities of the Rouge Park has been to re-establish the ecological function on a broad scale for that watershed. It's really the only opportunity we have left, because all the rest of (the city) is urbanized,' said Denney.
The restoration will allow frogs, salamanders, turtles and a variety of bird species to thrive. There were once 300 bird species in Toronto, but now there's only 100. The park has about 200. 'Things like amphibians and some of these interior forest birds are some of the weakest links, so if we protect them we'll protect almost everything else at the same time,' said Rouge Park general manager Lewis Yeager. Rouge Park is Toronto's biggest park and is 13 times the size of New York's Central Park.
The Victoria Times Colonist - Saltspring homes buck national trend (10 June 2008) Canada's recreational properties are returning to more balanced market conditions as more listings come on the market, but Saltspring Island properties are holding tight to their value. That's because demand has increased for British Columbia's Gulf Island properties where the Islands Trust conservation rules have capped growth, said Li Read, of Re/Max Realty of Saltspring Island. Fly over the Gulf Islands to see 'an awful lot of green,' Read said. A new Re/Max report said that nationally, 91 per cent of the areas it surveys were moving from being sellers' markets to something more favourable to buyers. Exceptions were Salt Spring Island, two markets in Saskatchewan, and Newfoundland's east coast, the report said. Saltspring is the Gulf Island where property owners can live year-round because its amenities make is a stand alone community. This region's climate and terrific sailing among the Islands attracts buyers, Read said.
The New York Times - After 100 years, tribe's ancestors head home (10 June 2008) A hushed group of people, nearly four dozen strong, slipped into the American Museum of Natural History in New York early Monday, after a roughly 3,000-mile journey to take their ancestors home. The Tseycum First Nation, a native tribe from northern Vancouver Island, in British Columbia, are repatriating the remains of 55 of their ancestors to be reburied on Tseycum land. Tribe members performed an emotionally charged private ceremony over the remains. The ceremony lasted two and a half hours, and the tribe members and elders from related tribes prayed, spoke, wept and sang, saying they wanted to soothe their ancestors' spirits and prepare them for the trip. 'And then we said, ''Now we're going to take you home,'' Chief Vern Jacks said, moments after the ceremony. 'These people we are taking here have knowledge, respect, wisdom,' he added. 'We live by today's society, but our history walks with us.'
