With summer peak electricity demand days around the corner, the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) is launching a saveONenergy conservation campaign that will reward homeowners with AIR MILES reward miles for making their homes more energy efficient while reducing their electricity costs. About the saveONenergy campaign and program: The OPA funded suite of saveONenergy programs has grown into one of North America’s most successful and comprehensive electricity conservation efforts. The OPA’s saveONenergy programs have helped Ontarians save 1900 MW of electricity – that’s the equivalent to powering 600,000 homes. The new saveONenergy programs are designed to help consumers do even more. Conservation is good for consumers, good for the environment and good for Ontario's energy system.
Every day, while most of Vancouver is still asleep, early-rising workers toil behind the scenes to prepare the city for the day ahead. Farmers, sanitation workers, construction crews, postal workers, and firemen are all up at the crack of dawn to ensure a safe, efficient, and enjoyable day for all. To celebrate these early-rising ‘unsung heroes’, the BC Egg Marketing Board (BCEMB) and farmers from the Fraser Valley handed out hundreds of hot breakfast sandwiches in dozens of locations across Greater Vancouver today. The early morning blitz kicked off BCEMB’s new ‘Good Morning BC’ campaign. The initiative encourages members of the public to nominate an unsung hero in their own lives who they would like to have recognized, via a dedicated website http://www.goodmorningbc.ca.
Canadian-led research into the human microbiome (the gut) has led to the discovery of a natural approach for cholesterol management. Cardioviva is a probiotic supplement that is clinically proven to reduce LDL (“bad”) cholesterol. It comes at a time when 40% of Canadians have high blood cholesterol, a risk factor for heart disease. Currently, scientific and public health leaders worldwide are putting significant effort into better understanding the microbiome—Cardioviva is a Canadian breakthrough in this field and illustrates a new role for probiotics. CSO Dr. Mitchell Jones: “Cardioviva is the first probiotic supplement that’s been shown to move a recognized marker for disease.” CEO Ryan Jones: “The breakthrough moment was recognizing that gut health was contributing to heart health.”
PropertyGuys.com, Canada’s largest private sale franchise network and alternative to traditional real estate agents, has launched a national campaign to urge consumers to take a rational look at hefty agent fees. Consumer surveys revealed that the majority of respondents thought that 5 per cent commission was too expensive. The question is: why do agents charge so much, and why do people still pay it? The co. attributes this to the lack of information provided to the public on the true cost of the specific activities performed by agents – the “real estate agent black box”. “The stranglehold that the large brokerage brands have on the market is based on fear,” says Ken LeBlanc, PropertyGuys.com. “Consumers want a better solution that combines technology and access to expertise.”
