Canada's economy added about 6,600 jobs recently, essentially reversing a similar decline, but having too little effect to change a national unemployment rate that has been stuck at 6.8 per cent for six months in a row.
Statistics Canada's monthly job report provides a fresh reading on an important economic indicator, as well as fuel for an ongoing debate in political and business circles about whether the country fell into a recession in the first half of this year.
The federal Conservatives say they have committed in principle to address a remote First Nation's plight that has become an election campaign issue, but the community's leadership isn't convinced the Conservative promise is anything new.
Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, which straddles the Ontario-Manitoba boundary, has been under a boil-water advisory for 17 years and has no all-weather road. It was separated from the mainland a century ago when an aqueduct was built to send fresh water to Winnipeg.
Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall is calling for cuts to the federal government's equalization program, which provides $17 billion a year to poorer provinces.
Wall says now that a federal election is underway, it's time to discuss options such as cutting the amount in half and using the rest for infrastructure funding or national tax cuts.
Wall also says the equalization formula is too rich for hydro-producing provinces such as Quebec and Manitoba, because of the way it calculates the value of hydro revenues.
Brandon Mayor Rick Chrest couldn't be happier with the recent announcement of a new bridge that will eventually be constructed over the railway tracks at 18th Street.
In case you missed it, the federal government will chip in one-third of the cost via the New Building Canada Fund ($19.2 million) for a new four-lane bridge, replacing the current Daly Overpass in the city. The provincial government is responsible for the rest of the project, which is estimated to cost a total of $60 million.
The province has made improvements to Spruce Woods Provincial Park after devastating flooding submerged the area in 2011.
Work on the park last summer, located west of Winnipeg, included clean-up and repair to the campground, construction of flood-resistant washroom/shower buildings, a new sewage lagoon outside the flood zone, restoration of all roads and access points in the campground along with improvements to the beach and day use areas.
Cooler, wetter weather has calmed the forest fire situation down in Manitoba but there were still 43 fires burning as of recently, with all but five of those in the province's north.
There were 37 fires burning in the northeast region, with one other burning in the province's northwest. The remaining five fires were all in the eastern region, which has seen the second-highest number of fires — 101 — in the province this year, trailing only the northeast, which has had 198, with 86 fires so far in the northwest region.
Green building certifications in the real estate industry, while yet to reach critical mass, are increasing. Property management firms are directly finding that such certifications translate into tangible benefits for occupants. Meanwhile, programs like BOMA BESt are acquiring more buzz, with talk of a potential update and improvement of the current version 2 program.
