TORONTO, July 22 (Reuters) – The Canadian government on
Tuesday invited remote communities across the country that don’t
have high-speed Internet access to make a claim on some of the
C$305 million ($284 million) it plans to spend over the next
three years to upgrade access.
But consumer group OpenMedia.ca was skeptical of the move,
skewering both the Conservative government and Canada’s telecom
companies for failing to finish earlier projects on time or to
the scale required.
TORONTO, July 18 (Reuters) – Perhaps most famous for having
a mayor who has admitted smoking crack cocaine, Toronto has much
more than salacious headlines to offer the intrepid visitor,
especially when snow is far from the collective consciousness.
With a winter that can send recent immigrants into shock,
Toronto is best visited between May and September, when it is
awash with festivals and events, and patios are jammed with
locals enjoying a long-awaited outdoor pint.
