THE HIDDEN FAILURE OF OUR CHURCHES

WHEN THIS YEAR'S CENSUS, the first since 1951, is made public it will contain the statement that at least nine Canadians in every ten are adherents of a Christian church or have been committed to one by their parents or guardians.

TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS kill more people in the prime of life, in Canada and the United States, than any one disease.

End of the high-living, padded-expense-account era?

While unemployment statistics and arguments capture headlines across the country, another serious symptom of recession seems to be going almost unreported. As unobtrusively as possible — for fear of alarming shareholders, lowering employee morale and admitting weakness to competitors — hundreds of companies in Canada are tightening their belts.
