    Why Canadians are soooo politeCanadian politeness is so notorious, its practically our international greeting, our very own version of shalom. Nine times out of 10, when Ive heard Im sorry uttered in a foreign country, (and here where I live in the US), and I say, You must be Canadian, Ive gotten, How did you know?

    Recession no reason to give up on capitalismIt also reflects the puzzling reluctance of business leaders to engage the public, as well as their summer wine sipping friends, with an explanation of its root causes. Given that political actions follow public opinion, this is a dangerous reticence.

    Why a Mexican Fiesta?Mexican fiesta parties are reflections of a time-honored Mexican tradition, the fiesta. Lively, colorful and filled with entertainment and delicious foods, Mexi-can fiesta parties are popular in Mexico, in the United States, and in Canada. Theyre thrown to celebrate traditional Mexican fiestas or a variety of events.

    Mexican culture is an important influence in Canadian society. Whether com-memorating a holiday or simply a summer bash, Mexican fiesta parties are festi-ve ways to experience that culture. For natives of Mexico, Mexican fiesta parties bring a sense of home and culture to a day or evening of great food and music with friends and family.

    One of the most valuable aspects of celebrating Mexican fiestas in the Canada is to experience how these two cultures--one singular, the other a blend of cultu-res from the beginning--have harmonized in so many ways. Other than strictly religious observances, perhaps there is no greater symbol of what Mexico and Canada have brought to one another. Often called the great mosaic, London has not eradicated the flavor of Mexican fiestas. Rather, London has embraced a dynamic aspect of the Mexican people who call London home, and the society is more vibrant for it.

    Enjoy the sights, sounds and flavours of Londons Mexican heritage.

    Bocaditos de LondonVirus del Nilo del Oeste se acercan cada vez msDe acuerdo con los oficiales de la Unidad de Salud London-Middlesex, el calor y la hu-medad que se han dejado sentir en la zona, son las condiciones propicias para la proli-feracin de alimaas, y advierten de que aun existe cierto riesgo de que estos mosquitos se propaguen en London. En estos casos se recomienda utilizar repelente y asegurarse de vaciar el agua dejada por las lluvias de trastos y contenedores en los alrededores de las casas y negocios. Las pruebas hechas en Lon-don para corroborar la existencia del virus fueron negativas, pero se seguirn haciendo de manera continua hasta que el cambio de temporada se torne frio.

    No permita el consumo de Bebidas Energticas a sus hijosLa publicacin de la Asociacin Mdica Canadiense est emitiendo una alarma sobre el consumo y gran popularidad de estas bebidas energticas entre ni-os y jvenes, mismas que contienen una elevada cantidad de cafena, como por ejem-plo el de 10 latas de coca-cola. Los atractivos diseos los hacen un blanco perfecto, a lo que esta asociacin mdica hace un llamado a Health Canada a regular esta prctica, pues ya que los menores de 12 aos no deberan ingerir ms all de 85 miligramos de ca-fena al da, lo cual se traduce en dos latas de refresco, gran diferencia no cree Usted?

    Western Fair cambia de parecerEl aviso de que este ao las personas con discapacidad as como sus ayudantes paga-ran boleto para su entrada a dicha feria, causo gran revuelo e indignacin; obligando a los altos mandos de manera casi inmediata a revocar dicha decisin y de paso pedir disculpas. El aviso se haba hecho con el fin de mantener la calidad del evento, pero la respuesta de London no se hizo esperar. De todas maneras el costo de entrada para pblico en general subi a 12 dlls.
