Quotes

"Quebec's transport minister plans to launch a pilot project this fall on two of Quebec's highways to test out variable speed limits. The speed limit on most Quebec highways is currently 100 km/h. A variable speed limit would mean potentially increasing it to 120 km/h during times when weather conditions permit."
"Why are newspapers and TV broadcasts filled with disaster, corruption and incompetence? It may be because we’re drawn to depressing stories without realising, says psychologist Tom Stafford."
"Certain brands of organic fruits from California have been recalled due to possible listeria contamination. The recall affects red and black plums, yellow and white nectarines, yellow and white peaches, and red, green and black pluots sold under the brand names Wawona, Sweet to Eat or Harvest Sweet."
"Montreal public health is calling for more regulations surrounding e-cigarettes. E-cigarettes, which are unregulated in Canada, are increasingly popular among smokers trying to quit. But critics say the lack of control mean that e-cigarettes risk introducing a new generation of young people to smoking, when little is known about the long-term health impact of the products."
