    TD Bank is closing its customer service call center at 1441 Main Street and eliminated 200 call center jobs. But those workers may have a lifeline in the form of Thing5, a fast-growing company that is still looking for 350 employees to staff a call center it just completed in the neighboring One Financial Place Building at 1350 Main Street. The center is scheduled to close in December. “So technically we could absorb them all. I don’t know if what we have is right for all those people. But by numbers we could absorb them all, “ said David Thor,...

Adding to the mystery is that it is the 13th foot to wash up on the Canadian province's coastline over the past decade. "Our early analysis suggests these are human remains and we will do further investigation and testing ... in the coming weeks," said Andy Watson, a spokesman for the BC Coroners Service, about the Thursday discovery. The remains included a tibia and fibula. The Coroners Service said all previous 12...

    Last Wednesday marked the 28th anniversary of the "Montreal Massacre", when fourteen female students at the École Polytechnique were murdered by a man known to posterity as "Marc Lépine". Much followed from that terrible slaughter, including various "gun control" measures - and the official annual commemorations that, a quarter-century on, are attended by as many eminences as Remembrance Day or Dominion Day. A decade or so back, I heard the Quebec broadcaster Marie-France Bazzo remark how strange it was that, after all these years, nobody had made a work of art about what happened that day. And shortly thereafter someone...

    Schools in Newfoundland and Labrador will no longer be participating in a popular holiday charity. The province’s English School District has directed all schools to cease participation in Operation Christmas Child, a campaign that gives schools and individuals the opportunity to fill a shoebox with small gifts to send to children in need in more than 150 countries. The campaign is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, a non-denominational evangelical organization. District trustees voted at a public meeting on Nov. 25 to end any provincial school participation in the program after concerns were raised about the policies of Samaritan’s Purse. “This...

    OTTAWA — In a surprise twist in Canada’s shipbuilding saga, a foreign consortium is offering the country a way to build a fleet of warships at a guaranteed price of $30 billion — a potential savings of $32 billion. Fincantieri of Italy and Naval Group of France — major forces in international shipbuilding — don’t believe the current $62-billion Canadian Surface Combatant program, already beset with delays and increasing costs, will be successful, industry sources told Postmedia. Instead, the French and Italian governments have proposed that Canada’s chosen contractor, Halifax-based Irving Shipbuilding, build 15 ships based on the consortium’s FREMM...

    No, sexual harassers are not dominating the news in Canada, homophobes and Islamophobes are There are no outed sexual harassment bullies among Canadian Members of Parliament in Ottawa or in a nation whose own Liberal Government portrays its own people as homophobes and Islamophobes. Dozens of accused sexual harassers within the government, media and entertainment industry are being outed daily by a salivating mainstream media in the country next door, but in Canada it’s homophobes and Islamophobes that the Prime Minister Justin Trudeau-led Liberal Government is outing.

"I'm afraid we have to be serious about the fact these people are a serious danger to us, and unfortunately the only way of dealing with them will be, in almost every case, to kill them," Stewart told BBC Radio's John Pienaar last month. Stewart, a former diplomat, continued: "These are people...

Roth says she learned that the student harassed several women, complimenting them on their clothing while leering at their chests, repeatedly asking staff members to go...

    An evangelical Christian couple from Alberta, Canada, said that their application to adopt a child was rejected by the government because they do not agree with gay marriage. The couple, who weren't named in the legal documents, have filed a discrimination case against Alberta, claiming that their religious views on marriage being a union between a man and a woman were targeted, CBC News reported. "The casework supervisor explained that our religious beliefs regarding sexuality were incompatible with the adoption process," an affidavit calling for a judicial review of the government's decision said. "The casework supervisor said this stance was...

    A Christian couple in the Canadian province of Alberta have been told by local Catholic Social Services and the provincial government that they are unfit to adopt children because they accept Biblical teaching regarding the immorality of homosexual acts, according to their attorneys at the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms. The married couple, whose initials are given as “C.D. and N.D,” have filed a civil suit against the province alleging religious discrimination, and calling the decision to reject their candidacy for adoption “unreasonable and void by virtue of arbitrariness, bias, bad faith, as well as breaches of procedural fairness and...
