Unemployment edged up to 7.1% in June

The Canadian economy's capacity to generate meaningful job growth continued to fall short of expectations last month -- particularly in Ontario -- as employment surprisingly fell by 9,400 nationally in June and by 33,900 in the country's most populous province.

Ontario lost 19K full-time & 15K part-time jobs. There are 3 major concerns in particular:
1) Manufacturing sector in Ontario is shrinking.
2) 15-24 youth unemployment is particularly high.
3) Over-concentration in property, finance and consumer industries.

It will be hard for the Canadian economy to do well until the US one does better. They are, after all, our biggest trading partner and if their economy continues to do badly, so will ours. :(

I take great pride in being Canadian. Our one current hope for Canada, in the field of education and technology, is Blackberry.
While Blackberry seed level is nothing to be proud of, it has paid the price , and is now potentially a world leader in technology.

This stands to benefit all of us as I encourage everyone stakeholder, whether can user, or shareholder to give me their proxy vote. Maybe we will be able to save it and stop the current management from dismantling it just for small time money interests.
Canadians think large and the rest of the world relies on us to be responsible with the gifts we have been given.

Way to go! If I had stock you would get the Proxy. I have had 5 generations of BlackBerry's now and I will keep buying them till they don't make them anymore. The technology that they have developed is world class and iso or androd still have not matched it in some areas. This is just a mark on a great company just like when Bill Gates said when they frist released windows 95 that they did not need a web brower because the internet was a fad. Today who has not used internet exploer. Blackberry is a great company and I currently use two, one for work and one for play.

It's hard to understand this secretive stuff, while I pay taxes for a more open and accountable government. I hope more get involved shaking their heads at people we don't know, talking for our future. I can see bring this stuff and discussing live,(Hangouts) so we can give them the right direction. When I hear experts in tech, saying it's no good it makes me wonder how much the buffet is costing me.
Thanks goes out to +OpenMedia.ca for keeping me informed and voice heard.

It was yet another electrifying Canada Day celebration under the bright sun and on the lush green lawns of University of Waterloo (Ontario) and the banks of the Columbia Lake which provided the cool breeze to create a mesmerizing ambience.

I took this picture last year at #garibaldi lake and the view is spectacular as you can see. The peak on the right is the #blacktusk  and the Garibaldi lake on the left.

This picture was taken from Panorama Ridge a 30 Km hike trip
