Pinnguaq, the Arctic-inspired, Lindsay tech start-up, is being awarded $1.7 Million to develop and deliver coding programs across Nunavut and Muskegowuk Aski in Northern Ontario.
An agency like Community Living Trent Highlands has a unique and interesting job, although it may sound like a wonky business model — because our main goal is to be no longer needed.
While a Lindsay’s woman’s life is being changed for the better with basic income, she wishes the Province would also assign case workers for those who are used to having a human face in their corner.
Jennifer Brooke, a young woman who previously received income from the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP), made the jump to Lindsay’s basic income pilot last October, getting her first cheque on Nov. 25 – and it’s really making a positive impact in her life.
If you are reading this you’re almost certainly on the “haves” side of the digital divide.
You have at least one computer, tablet or smartphone — you may even have all three. For a monthly fee a service provider connects you to all that the internet has to offer and to a community of other users.
You may also make monthly payments for additional streaming music or videos. And for sure you have the skills to use devices and navigate the web. (You found your way to The Lindsay Advocate website, didn’t you?)
Boiling Over’s Coffee Vault, the popular independent coffee shop at Kent and Cambridge Streets in Lindsay, is taking a month to decide how it will fully react to a huge increase in the minimum wage.
It was less than a year ago when Miranda Popovic and her father were rear-ended trying to make a left-hand turn on a now-infamous straight stretch of road leading into Omemee.
Ten years earlier, her dad and her brother had been hit in the same area, again making a left hand turn into a driveway.
Lindsay and District Labour Council leader says minimum wage should never have been frozen in the first place.
Nicki Dedes and her family have ensured the Olympia Restaurant has been a downtown fixture in Lindsay for more than 100 years. The owner operator is used to “living on edge” in the restaurant business, given that profit margins in the industry are even lower than they are in retail – about three per cent.
When politicians dream, they dream in roads. They dream of roads connecting cities and towns (especially their cities and towns) and that these roads will then bring more people.
More people means more tax dollars. More roads also means more infrastructure for businesses, and those businesses in turn will perhaps choose a better connected Kawartha Lakes as their home.
Delores O’Riordan’s passing suddenly at the age of 46 is heartbreaking for countless reasons.
Her voice is immediately recognizable, her harmonies defining The Cranberries, one of the most important bands to emerge from the 1990s. For many of us, she defined our youth; our maturation into adults with emotional, political and spiritual awareness.
Imagine a French bakery. A boulangerie. There are racks of warm baguettes and country loaves with slightly blistered crusts. And croissants, of course. In a see-through case are the day’s cookies and tarts. Maybe a surprise, too. One day there are chouquettes (what Timbits aspire to be in their dreams), another day there may be buttery, dense Breton kouign-amann.
