The Rest Of The World Couldn't Vote, But We Can Act

We in Canada, along with many other people around the world, did not get to vote in the recent American election -- yet we are meant to suffer the international consequences of it. Shall we sit back, as usual, and watch events unfold, including the possibly catastrophic effects of climate change left unchecked?

Jean-François Papillon: I have been a Wealth Advisor and Portfolio Manager with the Roux Papillon Blais team at BMO Nesbitt Burns for 15 years.

How to attract top talent to engineering

...Sexism plays a role. Professor Brian Rubineau of McGill University in Canada conducted a long-term study of 700 female engineering students. The survey included voluntary diary entries to log their experiences. Professor Rubineau concludes: “Many of the women in our study experienced blatant gender bias in their project teams and internships.
