A Secure Future for Windsor Assembly Jobs - 10/31/08 07:37 AM
While it is not official yet, all signs are pointing toward Windsor as the location for Nissan's next improvement. Nissan and Chrysler have recently announced an assembly partnership that involves each company doing what they do best. Nissan will be building the Dodge Hornet for Chrysler and Chrysler has agreed to build the 2011 Titan pickup truck for Nissan. This expansion seems to pave the way for Chrysler to build the 2010 Nissan Quest or its replacement at the Windsor Assembly Plant. This would be a win-win situation for all involved, especially the 4,600 members of the CAW Local 444 at (0 comments)
Windsor is home to Coulter's, "Ontario's largest furniture store" which boasts 80,000 square feet of showroom, a quality stock of North America's best furniture manufacturers, and a colorful history.

Give Kindness a Ghost of a Chance This Halloween - 10/24/08 06:35 AM
It's a week before Halloween, a popular holiday that in modern times means donning costumes, decorating your home in orange and black, carving a pumpkin, and trick or treating - maybe for UNICEF or maybe for a stock of candy that children hoard and parents raid for their favorite chocolate bar. Though it's generally considered a fun time, it's also a great time to start a new tradition in your household or in your life. Take a look at this link to blog posted by Ann Arbor, MI realtor Kathy Toth: http://activerain.com/blogsview/750995/Ghosting-It-Forward-Pay-It-Forward-for-Ann-Arbor-NeighborsFriends-before-Halloween In the spirit of the movie Pay It Forward, (1 comments)
Canada's Favorite Tiger - 10/24/08 05:26 AM
Giant Tiger is Canada's favorite discount store. Founded in Ottawa in 1961 with a $15,000, investment, it has grown to over 184 locations across Canada, with 106 locations in Ontario alone. Some stores are company owned, but the majority are franchised operations, a reflection of company philosophy that customers are better served by local owners. Giant Tiger carries fashions, home accessories, toys, specialty foods, and housewares. Just as Oprah Winfrey boosted Target's fashion appeal by softening the "t" at the end so it sounds French ("Tar-gay"), Giant Tiger fashion customers refer to the store as "GT Boutique." The company responded by (0 comments)

Home Health Care in Windsor has taken a high-tech turn. Nurses and patients will both benefit from a pilot project by Saint Elizabeth Health Care. The company has chosen Windsor's 200 frontline staff to test the C5 Tablet Computer. The technology will eliminate much of a nurse's paperwork and free up more of his or her time to care for patients.

Although there has been a recent shift to smaller cars, there will always be a demand for vehicles that seat five to seven people and are capable of lugging baby gear.
