The government is going to drop the speed limit on the 126 by Magnetic Hill School. Word is that the government made the decision last week… apparently when students return to school after Christmas break in January the speed zone in front of the school will be dropped to 50 km/h from 70. This is the end of a years long battle by parents and school officials to get the limit reduced. Principal Nick Smith told the Times & Transcript that “so often you beat your head against a wall and ask ‘why do I do this?’…but every once in a while things do work if you stick with them.”

Marketing expert Tony Chapman says Loblaws is smartly getting ahead of the bread price-fixing story by offering a $25 coupon https://t.co/MssB0zGdgD

George Weston and Loblaw Companies are publicly confessing that they both took part in an industry-wide bread price-fixing arrangement for over a decade. But each will receive immunity from any criminal charges or penalties after tipping off Canada’s competition watchdog as soon as they’d learned of it in March of 2015. The companies became aware of an arrangement involving the co-ordination of retail and wholesale prices of some packaged breads from late 2001 until March 2015, and notified the Competition Bureau. Loblaws is getting out in front of it by offering everybody who registers a $25 gift card.
