Making a Difference

11014950_10153268098175540_3681869212171464033_nJanuary 2015- Headlines around the world read, “Ontario to Ban Killer Whales.” Our government was receiving great praise for making this bold statement and we were thrilled they had done so. However, since then, several questions have been raised and they are very concerning questions……

First and foremost, what they failed to mention at the time, was what they planned on doing with Kiska, Ontario’s (and it appears as though Canada’s) very last sole surviving orca ,who has been an unwitting tourist attraction in Niagara Falls, ON for almost 4 decades.

When Bill 80 was publicly released (see Bill 80- it was then clear just what they intended to do with Kiska. They wish to grandfather her into this Bill which essentially means that if passed as it is now, Kiska will never have the chance at seeing another member of her species ever again. She could…

Can you see Canada in places it shouldn’t be?

toronto(NC) You probably know that in many movies, Canadian locations serve as stand-ins for American ones. But these examples may surprise you:


Could it be that a movie named after ‘the Windy City’ was actually shot in Canada? Better believe it. Chicago, the 2002 Oscar-winning musical was shot mostly in Toronto, in some of the city’s period buildings. It makes sense. The two cities share similar architecture and follow a similar urban-sprawl pattern due to the lakes surrounding them.

Detroit Rock City

This rock ‘n’ roll cult favourite was filmed almost entirely in Ontario, despite being set in Detroit. Lucky KISS fans from Hamilton were cast as extras in the movie’s concert scene and got to watch KISS play live at Hamilton’s Copps Coliseum.

Seven Years in Tibet

The glorious opening shots, supposedly of the Himalayas, were shot on Mount Waddington in British Columbia. To prepare themselves for the shoot, lead actors Brad Pitt and David Thewlis underwent intensive mountain-climbing training to conquer Western Canada’s most popular peak.

“The diversity of scenery in Canada, from the natural environment to the colourful cities, makes it a great backdrop for blockbuster films,” says Kate Brennan, senior communications manager for Redbox, a leading name in new release movie rentals. “It really shows the transformative power of movies, giving you a glimpse of a world that may be closer than you realize.”

Brennan points out that for a low cost, the Redbox service offers a wide range of new-release DVDs and Blu-ray discs, featuring the most popular celebrities and characters. It’s also the best option for Canadians to view new release movies, not available on Netflix or any other streaming services on the market. You can reserve them online at, or make a selection in the kiosk at your favourite retailer.

Make a New Year’s resolution to stay safe online

(NC) This is the time of year when we take stock of the year that was – and then make our resolutions for the year to come. When it comes to new technology and using the Internet, here are two easy resolutions you can make right now:

1. Think before I app. 2. Keep a clean machine.

Just like resolutions to improve our daily diet or to add more exercise, both resolutions aim at improving the quality of your life. The following ‘cyber safe’ resolutions, for example, could have an impact on your personal identity, on your online accounts, and they could even affect your financial activities:


Keep a clean machine

• Make sure the software is up to date and use the most recent versions of your mobile operating system, security software, apps and Web browsers. Resolving to do these simple things is among the best defenses against malware, viruses and other online threats.


• Protect your personal information: Check privacy settings on your online accounts. Use strong passwords, and be careful of what you share online including your name, location, and other personal details like where you go to school or your age.

• Secure your device: Use a passcode to lock your smartphone or tablet.

Think before you app

• Before you download it, understand what information the app would access and share like your location, your contacts, social networking profiles, etc. Always download apps from trusted sources.

• Back it up: Sync your contacts, photos, videos and other mobile device data with another device or ‘cloud’ service on a weekly basis.

Making these resolutions will help to keep you safe online. More information can be found at

Your Essential New Year’s Eve Style Guide


(NC) There’s a lot of pressure on New Year’s Eve: the party you’ll attend, the food you’ll serve, the person you’ll kiss. But with Canadian style expert Janette Ewen’s quick guide, you’ll be able to cross ‘what to wear’ right off the stress list.

Sequins and sparkles

Some things are simply meant to be: chocolate and peanut butter, Brad and Angelina, sequins and New Year’s Eve. It’s a classic choice that never disappoints. There are very few occasions in a girl’s life when a midnight-blue sequined mini-skirt or a silver-flecked blouse are appropriate, but December 31st sure is one. “Pair your sparkly showstopper with a black leather legging or a pair of neutral pumps,” recommends Ewen. “Don’t forget to add a stack of crystal-embellished sterling silver rings from Pandora for extra sparkle.”

Dramatic hues

If sparkles aren’t your thing, opt for rich hues and unexpected combinations. Emerald green is festive and complementary for a variety of skin tones and hair colours; choose an A-line dress in this hue and be prepared for compliments all night. You could also opt to marry cotton candy pink trousers with a deep maroon blouse for a seriously fashion-forward look, or mix-and-match shades of blue with sterling silver accessories. “A powder blue coat over an ultramarine dress finished with Pandora’s sterling silver Shimmering Lace earrings will have you partying into the wee hours with ease,” notes Ewen.

Pattern play

You’re a neutrals diehard and proud of it. No problem! Punch up your NYE look with pops of surprising patterns. Invest in a leopard print clutch with gold hardware or a stylish plaid scarf. “Or, if you’re feeling particularly daring,” adds Ewen. “Spring for a polka-dot pumps or zebra-print booties to really boost your little black dress ensemble.”
