Karen Stintz, a former city councillor for Ward 16, has a personal connection to the issue: she herself has an artificial lawn.

  • The world's biggest oil exporter has quietly seized a market milestone from the U.S.

    As the United States raced over the past five years toward becoming a global petroleum powerhouse, the world’s biggest oil exporter Saudi Arabia quietly seized a market milestone from America: the largest source of peak summer demand. From June through August, when temperatures in Riyadh routinely rise above 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius), Saudi Arabia diverts as much as a tenth of its crude output to fuel power plants that run full tilt to meet surging demand from air conditioners. At the height of the U.S. energy boom, Texas landowner John Baen received about US$100,000 a month in royalty payments from companies producing oil and natural gas on his property. The result is that Saudi Arabia’s winter-to-summer “swing” in oil consumption has eclipsed that of the United States, where gasoline consumption jumps by as much as 10 per cent every summer as millions of families take advantage of school holidays and warm weather to embark on the classic American road trip.

  • Best Buy suffers on Canadian sales weakness as it closes Future Shop

    Best Buy Co. says slow sales of electronics in Canada — and a decision to close the Future Shop chain — left a significant dent in its first-quarter results. The Minneapolis, Mn.-based retailer reported international revenue dropped 22.1 per cent in the period to US$668 million, dragged lower by the consolidation of its Canadian brands and "ongoing softness" in the local market which led to more discounting. The company also said currency fluctuations played a role in the weakness during the quarter, and projected changes in Canada will have an even bigger impact during the second quarter, which ends in early August.

  • Canada’s first female commercial pilot retires | Toronto Star

It was 1973, and Cameron, then only 19, had taken a summer job with Transport Canada, interviewing small aircraft pilots in Vancouver. When she landed that day, Cameron knew she had to get back up in the air, and figured the best way to do it would be to become a pilot. On Sunday, Captain Judy Cameron, now 61, will take her final flight as a commercial pilot for a major airline, a job she was the first woman in Canada to hold.
