Statistics Canada, which has run into criticism in
recent years over the quality of its data, on Friday
said an “isolated incident” due to “human error” was
responsible for the wonky numbers.
OTTAWA — Turns out, Canada’s employment picture
isn’t as bleak as it first appeared.
After an unprecedented and massive revision,
Statistics Canada said on Friday 42,000 jobs were
created in July — not the measly 200 originally
reported by the federal agency only a week earlier.
President Barack Obama's effort to engage Africa
brought together the largest summit of African
leaders ever held in Washington. But China has
hosted such summits before, and the U.S. gathering
highlights what some see as a belated U.S. effort to
catch up and expand its economic ties with Africa.
Brampton is known nationally and internationally at
having one of the greatest concentration of South
Asians outside of India and as the demographics of
the city changes, other immigrant groups, notably
White are shrinking dramatically. A few months ago,
Immigration Watch Canada sent out thousands of
anti-immigrant flyers in Brampton that set off a
storm. Earlier this week, another batch of
anti-immigrant flyers went out leading people to
believe them to be sent off by Immigration Watch
Canada. However, when contacted, Dan Murray, a
spokesperson of the group said they had nothing to
do with these flyers leading people to believe that
a copycat is at work.

In politics we recognize the principle of
'one man, one vote', and 'one vote, one
value'. But by reason of our social and
economic structure, we continue to deny the
principle of 'one man, one value.' How long
shall we continue to live this life of
contradictions? – B. R. Ambedkar, 1949
Every August 15, the people of India
celebrate Independence Day and recall with
nostalgia the birth of our nation into
freedom. But nations are not just born, they
are also constructed. True, the citizens of
a nation usually have a common ethnic
background and origin, but they also share
a column I wrote last year about how
inappropriate it was for South Asians
holding Canadian citizenship to be
‘celebrating’ India’s Independence Day in a
passionate display of nationalistic fervor,
I received scathing rebuke from some South
Asians who were offended by my reasoning.
“Aren’t you proud to be an Indian?” one of
them asked me. That person’s pride certainly
didn’t stop him from trading his Indian
citizenship. A more appropriate question to
me would be, “weren’t you proud to be an
Indian?” I was until about the time I made a
decision to immigrate.
several religious minorities weep alone when
they are in pain. So to do the Dalits and
the Indigenous people, called Tribals or
Adivasis. There are a few vibrant human
rights groups, who organize factfinding
missions, go to the media and demonstrate
before parliament. But there has seldom been
a national outrage, cutting across
ethnicities, languages and caste barriers,
which would force policy and judicial
reforms, or change the mindset that has
fueled so much violence since independence.

order to take the next big step in Canadian
immigration and apply for citizenship you will have
to meet certain requirements before filling out any
forms. The requirements are relatively easy to
understand and this article addresses them all.
First of all, you must be of age to apply for
citizenship and be a permanent resident as well.
People wishing to become Canadian citizens under the
age of 18 must have a parent, an adoptive parent or
legal guardian apply for them. This guardian must be
a citizen or also applying for citizenship
simultaneously. (Note: children less than 18 years
do not need to meet the residential time
requirement.) Both the guardian and the child must
be permanent residents. However, if your permanent
resident status is contested you will be ineligible

challenges ahead for you as a businessman in Goa?
Victor Albuquerque: we face several challenges. Our
businesses are in sensitive areas like tourism and
we have healthcare tourism and alternate healthcare.
As far as tourism is concerned we have charters and
we face problems. The international scenario being
what it is it, is tough. We sign contracts for a
year and the dollar fluctuates and fuel prices go up
which means everything escalates, but the contract
stands. Now we have problems in Ukraine and we have
rooms booked for the charter flights that come from
Ukraine and other Russian cities.

increased by three times in the last three decades,
according to recent research published in the

Findings of the research done by Dr Aravind Pillai

along with four other researchers show that while
19.5% of male teens born between 1956 and 1960
consumed alcohol, this figure rose to 74.3% for
those who were born between 1981-1985.

Too little vitamin D has
been conclusively connected with dementia, although
more research is needed to establish cause and
effect. Experts say preventing dementia would
improve many lives and save billions.
A new study has confirmed a link between a lack of
vitamin D and development of dementia, including
Alzheimer's disease. Elderly people with a severe
vitamin D deficiency are more than twice as likely
to develop dementia, according to the research.
Simply taking a daily vitamin D supplement may be
enough to ward off Alzheimer’s disease and other
forms of dementia, according to medical experts.
offers tips on proper use of topical antiseptics to
reduce infections Published on July 26, 2014
Health Canada is reminding healthcare professionals,
caregivers and consumers of the safe use of topical
antiseptics used to clean the skin before an
operation (preoperative) or before an injection (preinjection).
These products can be considered safe and effective;
however, if proper care is not taken when using
them, they can become contaminated and cause
serious, subsequent infections.
