The event will consider ways to increase transparency, improve the child-death review system and make information about deaths public without compromising privacy rights. It will be live-streamed online.

His goal, he said, is ato ensure that we develop the strongest most robust review in Canada, and use the best practices available.a Bhullar said he will co-chair the committee of Canadian Ministers Responsible for Social Services and will urge other provinces to visit this site release similar data and to create a national child-death review system. aI think it is important that the scope of this roundtable include the death of every child in Alberta, not just those in the child intervention system,a he said. aWe need to learn from them, because we need to prevent as many as we can, across the board a not just with children who are in care.a Bhullar also promised to review a publication ban that prohibits families from speaking publicly about a child who has died in care, and bars news organizations from publishing names and photographs of those children. aI must stress, Iam not a fan of the way the law sits today,a Bhullar said. <br>More: http://www.edmontonjournal.com/Alberta+reveals+hundreds+more+children+died+while+receiving+provincial+care/9364286/story.html

aA low loonie is truly a mixed blessing for entrepreneurs,a said Richard Truscott, Alberta director for the Canadian Federation of Independent Business. aFor small and medium-sized businesses that do a lot of exporting, itas a http://gonzaloimyz.wordpressy.pl/?p=9 blessing, since their products are less expensive in foreign markets, including the U.S. which may strengthen demand. aIt also means more of our countryas consumers are likely to spend their money in Canada. But for those businesses that import goods or inputs from the south of the border, a high Canadian dollar can be a curse and have a major impact their bottom line.a Ben Brunnen, an economic consultant in Calgary, said the Canadian dollar has been trading at around a two-year low of late with strong economic growth and a tighter monetary policy in the U.S., in combination with slow growth and low interest rates in Canada, mostly to blame. aThe low dollar is expected to persist for the forseeable future and will impact Alberta businesses differently,a said Brunnen. aObviously Alberta manufacturers and exporters are going to benefit because their products will be comparatively cheaper. <br>More: http://www.calgaryherald.com/business/Lower+Canadian+dollar+good+business+Calgary+Alberta/9364527/story.html
