“Now, whether your home is new construction or old, the mandatory requirement for CO protection is the same,” says John Gignac, co-chair of the Hawkins-Gignac Foundation for CO Education.
Small Voices, Big Dreams is an international survey released today of almost 6,500 children, including 400 Canadian participants. Christian Children’s Fund of Canada led the Canadian survey component. Children aged 10 to 12 in 47 countries across the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia were asked about their views on violence and exploitation, and to describe what makes them feel safe and happy.
The survey found more than 70 per cent of Canadian children are concerned about crime and violence. Nearly 80 per cent feel most safe and happy when they’re with their family, and more than half say a parent or family member is their hero.
What if you could see cold before you stepped outside and felt it? Envisioning a future of safer winter driving, Canadian Tire partnered with leading rubber R&D organization, ARTIS, to develop a temperature-sensitive, colour-change all-season concept tire. Using a thermochromic formulation, the concept tire changes colour from white to a vivid blue at 7°C - the point at which you should consider changing to winter tires. According to a 2013 in-house study commissioned by Canadian Tire, 80% of Canadians were surprised to learn they should change to winter tires when temperatures drop below 7°C Creating a visual to help promote safe driving in winter, which isn't just about snow, was the push behind the creation of the concept tire.
Today, in response to Canadian athletes’ demands for a clean sport environment, the Government of Canada, the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) and the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC) announced their contribution of almost $1 million to the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES). The CCES outlined their new plan and launched a new and anonymous Report Doping Hotline (1-800-710-CCES). “This will increase the focus on intelligence gathering and investigations to stay ahead of sophisticated doping strategies, as well as expand the Whereabouts and Athlete Biological Passport Programs,” said Paul Melia, CEO and President of the CCES. “With increased intelligence we can test the right athlete, at the right place and at the right time. This is a huge win for fair and clean sport.”
