Oh to be in Ottawa, now that Allan’s not

As an ex-Torontonian living voluntarily in Ottawa for the past two years, I feel compelled to respond to Allan Fotheringham’s Dullsville-On-The-Rideau ... (March 22). His prejudiced comments on Ottawa show a distinct lack of imagination and initiative.

The Sky Shops Five

The charges had been expected for weeks, but Ottawa, somnolent in the annual Easter recess of parliament, was still startled when RCMP Inspector Rod Stamler went before Justice of the Peace Herb Wood at five-thirty on an April afternoon to formally accuse five prominent Canadians of conspiracy to defraud the government in the so-called “Sky Shops affair.”

Judgment at Yellowknife: End of Part I

The contrast was unnerving. Inside, in the muted plushness of the Yellowknife hearing room, oil experts were telling the judge about the great career opportunities for natives if a natural gas pipeline is built down the Mackenzie Valley.

Drapeau’s fate may rest on the Games, but the world’s rests on Habitat

One day, when you and I were young, Maggie, I was driving across the spine of Italy on a Versa scooter, winding my way through the Apennines from the Adriatic to the Mediterranean side of the boot. I stopped in a mountainside café for lunch. The proprietor was interested in a wandering Canadian, for he had relatives here and had spent a few years in Australia earning a stake but had to return to Italy to care for aging parents.

A Canadian response to the Trident: ‘No incineration without representation’

In all the current nattering over Soviet-American détente, not much attention has been paid—certainly not enough—to Trident, the most devastating instrument of mass destruction ever developed by mankind. From those wonderful folks at the Pentagon who already gave us Polaris and Poseidon, the Trident generation of nuclear missile firing submarines (the first is due out of the shipyards in 1978-79) will make all antecedents seem primitive by comparison.

The fight for the spoils of Hughes

They searched in Vancouver, London, the Bahamas. They hunted through old suitcases, flight bags, and the dusty files of a 1930s building in Hollywood. They combed highrise offices in Houston, Texas, and the safes of Las Vegas casinos. They wondered if it could be among the mass of shredded paper, stuffed into three big plastic bags, found in a luxury hotel above Acapulco Bay.

The best of both worlds

Consulting firms usually prefer to work in the background, without publicity or fanfare, but in the year it has been in existence the firm of Reisman & Grandy Ltd. has been making almost as many headlines as the clients it serves.

For the folks at IAC, unhappiness Is just a guy named Max

Canada’s largest finance company assures the public that it puts “money in action.” Certainly, with consolidated assets of nearly $2.4 billion, IAC (Industrial Acceptance Corp.) Ltd. has plenty of money to work with. But in its bid to turn itself into a chartered bank, the firm is encountering problems stemming mainly from the federal New Democratic Party.
