  • Weaker Canadian dollar may trigger takeovers on TSX, hollowing out investor choice

    By Fergal Smith TORONTO (Reuters) - Corporate Canada is on sale for foreign buyers after the Canadian dollar plunged, potentially triggering takeovers that hollow out investor choice in an already concentrated stock market, portfolio managers warned. A narrower pool of investment choices would reduce the opportunity to diversify, exposing Canadian investors to greater risk amid a highly volatile period for stock markets. U.S. home improvement retailer Lowe's Cos Inc agreed this month to buy Canada's Rona Inc for C$3.2 billion, paying a premium of more than 100 percent after the Canadian dollar fell from parity when a much lower bid was rejected in 2012.

  • Promises kept, broken, in progress during Trudeau's first 100 days in power

    Justin Trudeau made 214 of them during last fall's marathon election campaign, according to TrudeauMetre.ca, a non-partisan, citizen-driven website that tracks if and when the prime minister delivers on his commitments. As his Liberal government prepares to mark its 100th day in power Friday, the website reckons Trudeau has so far delivered on 13 promises, started 29 more and broken at least two. While some of the website's conclusions are debatable, they underscore that despite a running start, the government has made barely a dent in a sweeping platform that promised transformative change on multiple fronts: stimulating the stagnant economy, transforming government and even overhauling how governments are chosen.

  • 6 Reasons to Warm Up to In-Floor Heating (6 photos)

    With origins dating back to ancient Rome, in-floor heating isn’t anything new, but it’s come a tremendously long way from its distant roots. The technology has gone through plenty of permutations and countless improvements over the centuries. Homeowners today are probably most familiar with those electric heating mats designed to lend warmth to chilly floors—say, in the bathroom or back hall. In-floor heating can, however, do a lot more than just heat the floor. In fact, as experienced in hydronic radiant systems from industry leaders like Warmboard, the technology delivers a viable alternative to traditional forced air and can heat the entire home in a remarkably comfortable, energy-efficient way. Already a popular choice in Europe and Asia, in-floor heating remains relatively rare here at home. But more and more people are choosing the technology as the sole heating method for new homes, additions, and gut renovations. Click through now to learn why.
