TOPIC – Minimum Wage Back to Mid-1970s Levels.

INFO – Statistics Canada released a study today finding that, at about $10 per hour in all provinces last year, Canada’s average minimum wage was one cent higher than it had been in 1975 in today’s dollars ($10.14 versus $10.13).


GUEST – Jennifer Winter, PhD, Associate Director, Energy and Environmental Policy, The School of Public Policy, University of Calgary

TOPIC – Rail transport safety

INFO – As Transport Canada rolls out new rules designed to make rail transport safer, experts warn that weak data is leaving Canadian decision makers and the public without basic information on how safe railways are and what’s travelling along them, let alone what needs to change.
