  • Opinion: Supply management needs to change, and dairy farmers know it

    As Canada tries to figure out what to do with its dairy quota regime, Europe has just ended theirs. Introduced in 1984, European Union milk quotas were lifted on March 31, creating expansion opportunities for some dairy farmers while potentially menacing the livelihood of many other smaller and more vulnerable producers. The focus is to decrease input costs and build processing capacity in the dairy sector throughout Europe. Similar to in Canada, in Europe quotas on cow’s milk were implemented to prevent embarrassing overproduction scenarios that, prior to 1984, had led to milk lagoons and significant waste.

  • Toronto woman says she was asked to switch flight seats for religious reasons

    A passenger aboard a Porter flight on Monday said that she was asked to change seats to accommodate another passenger who she says would not sit beside a woman for religious reasons. Christine Flynn, executive chef for iQ Food Co. in Toronto’s financial district, said that she was buckled in her seat, awaiting takeoff on a flight from Newark back home to Toronto, when a man wearing traditional Orthodox Jewish garb walked down the aisle to his assigned seat beside her. Porter spokesperson Brad Cicero confirmed that Flynn was asked by an airline attendant if she would be willing to move but would not say the reason the request was made. Cicero also said that changes are now being made to Porter policy, and that new, specific examples will be incorporated into instructions given to crew members regarding their behaviour in airports and on flights.

  • China says 'many' countries sending troops for war anniversary

    China's Defense Ministry said on Thursday that "many" countries were sending troops to participate in or watch a military parade in central Beijing in September to commemorate the end of World War Two, but would only name Russia amongst those nations. With just a month or so to go until the parade, which will take place through Beijing's Tiananmen Square, China has given few details about who will be attending, aside from Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russian soldiers. President Xi Jinping could be left standing on the stage with few top Western officials, diplomats have told Reuters, due to Western governments' concerns on several issues, such as the presence of Putin and Russian troops.
