Canada 200: How to build a business superpower by 2067
Ottawa's upcoming IP strategy should include training for academics, entrepreneurs and administrators about the strategic importance of patents. But those same players must also collectively push to create global standards for technologies developed here. Other countries, including China and the United States, effectively ensure new global standards incorporate their homegrown technology, locking in value for their emerging champions. Canada, by comparison, is a "boy scout," says Michel Girard, vice-president of the Standards Council of Canada.

Pixar closes its Vancouver studio after 3 years
Oct. 09 2013 | The Globe and Mail | by STEVE LADURANTAYE and IAN BAILEY.

Walt Disney Co. abruptly closed its Vancouver-based Pixar Canada studio, leaving 100 employees out of work just three years after opening with a promise to make the city a “beacon” for artists across the country...."As the dynamics of the animation industry continues to change rapidly, we continue to fine-tune our studio and its production processes. We have made the determination to refocus our creative and business efforts and resources under one roof. Pixar Canada will cease operations immediately"

Utility Poles
June 9, 2012 | Globe & Mail | by David Kumagai (Idea for Hap Peters)
Vancouver is exploring an idea to merge its glut of utility towers into all-in-one “V-poles," designed by Generation X author and artist Douglas Coupland. The white posts, adorned with colourful rings, promise to offer Wil-"i, LED street lighting, electric-vehicle charging, parking transactions and electronic bulletin boards. Backed by Vancouver’s mayor, the poles are billed as more efficient and cost-effective than the current swath of eyesores powering the city. Mr. Coupland predicts “30 times more wireless traffic” by 2015, and wants his city to adapt before streets become “as cluttered as a kitchen junk drawer.”

Keep Lord Stanley's Park
Jul. 02, 2010 | The Globe and Mail | Editorial. At some point
someone is going to have to drum up the courage to say “no” to a first
nation demand to change a familiar place name to its purported native
original. The case of Stanley Park, which first nations leaders would
like changed to Xwayxway, provides the perfect opportunity. A firm
rejection would help to establish some necessary boundaries in the
politics of the renaming of Canadian places....There is no shortage of
aboriginal names, as it stands, from Saskatchewan to Toronto to Canada
itself. Aboriginals are not the only group, however, with claims to
Canada and its places.
