Premiers have 'productive' talks with PM - 01/12/08 07:26 AM
Some premiers said a meeting with Prime Minister Stephen Harper Friday in Ottawa to discuss the economy was productive, but no concrete commitments were made. "I know everyone tonight is looking for the miracle solution," said New Brunswick Premier Shawn Graham, who currently chairs the Council of the Federation, which represents all provinces. He called the meeting a "productive dialogue." "We had a very good discussion. We went around the table, discussing, identifying the issues and some of the solutions and some of the things that we think we should be pursuing," Quebec Premier Jean Charest said. "So in that respect it's a positive discussion. "I guess we'll have (0 comments)
Loonie slumps on feeble jobs report - 01/12/08 07:23 AM
The Canadian economy's record of habitually churning out robust employment growth came to an abrupt end in December, as 18,700 jobs disappeared, Statistics Canada said Friday. The jobs report was much weaker than analysts were expecting. The consensus had been that the country would add about 15,000 jobs. It was the first drop in employment in eight months. The Canadian dollar immediately fell by more than one cent as the figures suggested that the Canadian economy is slowing along with the U.S. economy. They also heightened speculation that the Bank of Canada may have to pick up the pace of interest rate cuts. The loonie (2 comments)

Premier's Letterman top ten reasons to visit N.S. - 01/12/08 07:17 AM
HALIFAX - It seems a fiddling performance by Nova Scotia's premier wasn't enough to entice late-night funnyman David Letterman to bring his talk show to the province. A local campaign to bring Letterman to Nova Scotia received a boost this week when Rodney MacDonald offered a Top 10 list of reasons for Letterman to visit Nova Scotia. The video ended with a fiddle performance by MacDonald, an accomplished musician, and was posted online and shown on local TV newscasts. But a spokesman for Worldwide Pants Inc., Letterman's production company, said Friday the "Late Show" is staying in New York. "We have seen it," (0 comments)
Fisheries minister sells off his fishing gear - 01/12/08 07:12 AM
Department of Fisheries and Oceans rules and conflict of interest guidelines have led the P.E.I. fisheries minister to sell his fishing gear and lobster licence. Allan Campbell spent almost 20 years fishing lobster off the eastern part of the North Shore, and many fishermen were pleased to see him appointed fisheries minister last spring. But life as a cabinet minister and a fisherman don't mix. "I've decided to exit the fishery and remain in my role as minister of fisheries and aquaculture here in the province," Campbell told CBC News Wednesday. All cabinet ministers have to give up their existing jobs while they are cabinet ministers. (0 comments)
Stratford PEI adds buses and a police officer - 01/12/08 07:00 AM
The Charlottetown Transit system will expand into Stratford this year as the town goes on a growth-fuelled spending spree. Stratford, just across the Hillsborough River from Charlottetown, is P.E.I.'s fastest growing community, and while many municipalities are tightening their belts this year due to a provincially imposed property assessment freeze, Stratford is finding the money for two buses and a new police officer. "They were both big priorities; both issues are really important to the development of Stratford, to maintaining a safe, effective community - an accessible community," said Mayor Kevin Jenkins. "We found a way to bring them both into this year's budget." Stratford council (0 comments)
P.E.I. can't afford to wait for federal money!!! - 01/12/08 06:55 AM
A billion-dollar aid package announced by Prime Minister Stephen Harper Thursday needs to come sooner and should be just the beginning of federal help for struggling industries, says P.E.I. Premier Robert Ghiz. Heading into Friday's first ministers meeting in Ottawa, Ghiz expressed his disappointment that P.E.I. will not get its share of the money until after a federal Conservative budget is passed. The funding is intended to offset the negative impact of the high Canadian dollar in communities hardest hit by its rise. "We've got a federal government right now that is sitting on a surplus of $15 to $20 billion," said Ghiz. "It's tied right (0 comments)

Travel predictions for the new year 2 hours ago NEW YORK - The travel gurus are looking into their crystal balls for the new year. Here are a few of their predictions. Terry Trippler, an airline analyst, says that while there will be fewer airfare increases, airlines will reduce the number of seats sold at the lowest prices. Also, Trippler says, more airlines will join the trend of only accepting credit or debit cards for on-board purchases, and many airlines will experiment with in-flight Internet access and text-messaging. Just be prepared to pay for the privilege. Trippler also thinks the new "Open Skies" agreement, which (2 comments)
