CANADA'S TOP 100 EMPLOYERS

At the start of a typical 12-hour shift, Mauree Stratton dons a hard hat and steel-toed work boots and climbs 18 steps to the cab of a 380-ton dump truck that is as big as a two-storey house. Seated behind the wheel, the 55-year-old driver and soon-to-be-grandmother begins her daily runs between the open-pit mines and the processing facilities at Syncrude Canada's huge oilsands operation north of Fort McMurray, Alta.

Silly new security rules

I travel regularly on the Eurostar from London to Paris. Since Sept. 11, there’s been a 50-50 chance the train will be cancelled or delayed for “security reasons.” My last return from Paris started with a 90-minute delay at the Gare du Nord station while small men with closed faces rushed by me carrying very slim briefcases to check out a suspicious package.

Forgotten stories of the Great War "Nobody’s a little interested in the First World War,” Norm Christie asserts. “Either it bites you or it doesn’t.” The host of the six-hour Great War series For King & Empire (History Television, Nov. 4 to 8; repeated on Nov. 11) was bitten when he came upon a little-known war cemetery while travelling in France in 1985.
