28 May was the 28th day of the eleventh month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:
28 May 2007
May 2007Canadian Press - Strong corporate news helps push TSX higher, oil prices recede (28 May 2007) The Toronto stock market closed higher Monday with most strength coming from positive corporate news. The TSX composite index closed up 49.67 points to 14,073.74. The TSX is up about nine per cent for the year to date. 'The big themes are still there, right? Good economic outlook, markets biased upward,' said John Johnston, chief strategist, The Harbour Group at RBC Dominion Securities. 'Overall, the big trend still seems to be onward and upward.' From a Reuters Canada report on this: All but one of the TSX index's 10 main groups were higher.
The Toronto Star reports (28 May 2007) Overall commodity prices rose to another record high last month, the Bank of Nova Scotia said Monday. The Scotiabank commodity price index was up 3.9 per cent in April over its previous high in March.
Canadian Press - Red-hot Canadian economy means workers rule when it comes to jobs, jobs, jobs (27 May 2007) A red-hot economy across Canada means workers rule during a time of record-low unemployment rates. While the seemingly unstoppable economic engine is charging full steam ahead across the country, employers in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan are having the most trouble attracting and retaining workers. That's led companies to offer more attractive work environments and flexible hours. Julian Barling, a business professor from Queen's University in Kingston, said managers who treat everyone fairly and focus on the collective good of their team rather than their own promotion create a happier, healthier and more productive workforce. Bosses who are considerate and show empathy are being hotly pursued by companies as a way to retain employees, Barling said. 'It's a real concern with the other and that creates a sense of a relationship between the follower and the leader, within which most other things are possible.' Pat Sullivan, president of the job site Workopolis.com, said employees are looking for a balance between work and the rest of their lives like never before and companies are delivering.
The Globe and Mail - The latest perk: The office veggie patch (28 May 2007) Business Objects, a tech company in Vancouver with 1,600 employees that designs computer programs for the likes of Ben and Jerry's and Mark's Work Wearhouse, is bringing agriculture to the workplace. The company is in the middle of transforming an old rooftop parking lot into an employee-cultivated fruit and vegetable garden it hopes will both perk up and feed weary workers. Commercial buildings in Canada have been sprouting green roofs—eco-friendly spreads of inedible grass and ferns that retain building heat and water. But the garden planned for Business Objects will join a small but budding group of workplace gardens that can yield a decent green salad. At Business Objects, employees have a bounty of options for on-the-job therapy. Employees can pass downtime contorting in a yoga room or blissing out in a massage room. But employees decided they needed one more diversion: office-grown food.
CBC News - Air Canada's carbon-offset program takes flight (28 May 2007) Air Canada said it was introducing a carbon credits program to meet the needs of green-minded consumers concerned about climate change. The airline will be working with Zerofootprint to offer the carbon offsets, a type of voucher used to sponsor clean-energy research and projects in an effort to counterbalance carbon emissions produced by human activities, such as flying. 'We not only want to make it possible for people to make good environmental choices, but we also want to play our part in addressing climate change,' Charles McKee, vice-president of marketing at Air Canada, said. 'By working with Zerofootprint, we will make it easy for people to calculate the impact of their journey and mitigate those effects with a small, voluntary additional payment to support environmental projects that reduce greenhouse gases.' The offsets support projects that include wind farms and methane capture plants. From a Canadian Press report on this: Deborah Kaplan, executive director of Zerofootprint, which offsets emissions by planting trees or through projects to prevent industrial or utility emissions, says the strategy '...highlights the environmental cost of goods and services we buy, and, when you offset with trees, it restores ecosystems, habitats, watersheds, greens communities and creates jobs.'
The Globe and Mail - Algonquin logging under scrutiny (27 May 2007) A government report that calls for the drastic reduction of logging activity in Algonquin Provincial Park is being applauded by environmental groups as the first significant move to expand protection of the area in 40 years. The Ontario Parks Board report found that in order to preserve the park's old growth forests, lakes, and streams, protection zones should be expanded from the current 22 per cent to 54 per cent of the total area. 'The fact that a government report says that it's time to reduce the area of logging in the park is great news,' said Evan Ferrari, director of the Wildlands League. Other recommendations in the report, include shutting down logging roads, using portable bridges, and switching to quieter logging equipment. The 765,000 hectares park contains more than 214 lakes, 1,374 campsites and 1,481 kilometres of canoe routes.
