Who knew Canada once planned to build a nuclear power plant in the arctic??
We bought this 60-year-old Government of Canada map about the country’s most important resources, and then updated it

What a commodity bust would mean for Canada's economy. This quote from SFU's David Jacks sums it up nicely: “We’ve experienced a tremendous and wonderful 15 years, and with the backdrop of a very large leverage and mortgage cycle, we’ve had a tripling of home prices. But the upswing is behind us. Now we’re on the downward side of the cycle."
Given that we’re already in a slow-growth environment, the risk is stagnation in the economy, or something worse

Hear from the guy who swallowed the human toe in Dawson City. Plus, a pic of where the toe is now (don't worry, it's not gross. Quite lovely actually)
'I really thought I was probably going to end up choking. How lame would that look?' Joshua Clark recounts the stunt

Here's the one bling, I mean thing, that really saved Canada from a larger trade deficit in July
A massive one-month increase in exports of precious metals jewelry seems to have rescued Canada from another ugly trade deficit

A lot of reasons are given for why Canada doesn’t have a housing bubble. Almost all were said about the U.S. housing market before that bubble burst.
