Cases from the cold

An emergency operator in Vernon, 300 km northeast of Vancouver in the B.C. Interior, took the call at 7:14 p.m. on Jan. 18, 1991: a report of a house fire. By the time firemen reached the white stucco bungalow on Vernon’s 26th Street, the small blaze under the basement stairs was out—extinguished by water released from a pipe that had been melted by the flames.

The first thing on their agenda was sexual harassment training—with Borden staff passing out copies of the latest issues of Maclean’s, detailing reports of sexual abuse in the military.

The Unite the Right crusade is dead as a dud

This is a country that is in major trouble. Unless it does something about it, it will be in the same bind it has been almost all this century. That is—like Albania—it will have only the Natural Governing Party ruling it forever. The country that has been run by the Liberals practically all the century since Sir Wilfrid Laurier was a pup now is in danger of having another uncontested stroll over our future.

LEASING VS. BUYING A NEW VEHICLE

After the largest downturn in vehicle sales on record (seven years) consumers exploded back into dealer showrooms during 1997 and prospects continue to look good for 1998.
