  • Job should be safe when the home isn't

    WINNIPEG — Domestic violence has often been overlooked as a workplace issue, but people in crisis don’t leave their abusive situations at home when they shut the door and leave for work each day.

    Guelph, Ont. — The public health messages disbursed in North America and western Europe warn pregnant women to avoid travel to Zika-affected areas as a result of potential maternal health risks. Zika is a virus primarily transmitted through the bite of infected Aedes mosquitoes, which are predominantly found in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • National Viewpoint -- First Nations need more than accounting

    WINNIPEG — We are all treaty people. We should be anxious, therefore, about the implications of Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett’s announcement in December that her department will “cease all discretionary compliance measures” related to the First Nations Financial Transparency Act.
