dearmrmiller-fullGrowing up, I was taught that I have a responsibility to treat others with dignity, compassion, and humanity. So I get uneasy when powerful people use their platform to prey on fears and hatreds.

But this is what Larry Miller is doing with the government's settling of Omar Khadr's suit out of court. Many groups have made hay out of this issue, including anti-Muslim hate-groups rallying around Ontario. Miller's comments have provided a lot of...

gavelTogether with over 70 percent of Canadians, our MP Larry Miller is livid at the Khadr settlement.
The two opinions as presented by his critics are contrived. We are told that we can either fight Khadr tooth and nail every step of the way through the courts OR we can pay him ten million plus.

IF a business mainly competes globally and with cheap imports, then the hike of labour costs has strong consequences for the industry.
Economic theory suggests two options:

1) Ensure that your products distinguish themselves in quality and other attributes, which allows charging a price premium, or

lettertotheeditorLetter to the editor,

I honestly don't understand why the Owen Sound Chamber of Commerce needs to oppose the minimum wage increase that Premier Wynne is proposing for Ontario. In the world of a competitive marketplace, it simply doesn't make sense.

If I were in business, one of the few things that would matter is competing on a level playing field. If I must buy my materials at a cost greater then my competitors I would be in big trouble. Of course...
