19 September 2014 — Ismaili Muslims from
across the city gathered to attend Jamatkhana for
the first time at the Ismaili Centre, Toronto. It
was a particularly happy and emotional occasion,
especially for the Jamat who live in the Don Mills
area and surrounding neighbourhoods.
Another milestone in Charles Correa's already
spectacular career last week, when the $300 million
Aga Khan Museum and Ismaili Centre opened in
Toronto. The museum was designed by 86-year-old
Japanese Pritzer Prize winner, Fumihiko Maki, and
the Ismaili Centre (including prayerhall) by Goa's
own Correa, now a compelling candidate for the
Bharat Ratna. The new complex has earned raves,

Widely Unaware Of How To Protect Against Travellers'

Ninety-four per cent of

Toronto, Oct. 7, 2014 /CNW/
- Planning for warmer climates this
travel season? Why spoil the fun? Up to 70 per cent
of travellers may experience travellers' diarrhea
while on vacation, the most common travel-related
disease. However, a recent survey has revealed the
majority of Canadians (79%) are not as travel savvy
as they should be about the potential causes,
symptoms and risks of an E. coli infection.
Bacterial pathogens, such as enterotoxigenic E. coli
(ETEC), are thought to cause approximately 80 per
cent of cases of travellers' diarrhea, which is
characterized by a sudden onset of symptoms
including watery diarrhea, fever, nausea, vomiting,
and abdominal pain.5,6 ETEC is the leading bacteria
causing up to one third of travellers' diarrhea
