SUNCOR DRUG TESTING NIXED ... Alberta is all about oil, and the industry employs LOTS of people. Earlier this week there was a court ruling that could possibly affect someone you know. Here's what took place: Court Of Queens Bench Justice, Eric Macklin, granted a temporary injunction to prevent Suncor from starting a random drug testing program next week. The judge basically said drug testing can be an "...invasion of privacy that could cause irreparable harm to innocent employees." What about the old industry saying "Safety First"? What do YOU think? Here's the story: www.EdmontonSun.com/2012/10/12/court-injunction-granted-to-prevent-random-drug-testing
HONEST PEOPLE ROCK ... What would you do if you found a purse with $10,000 in it? I'm a firm believer in karma, and I think this Calgary woman should get a boatload of "good karma" for her selfless act earlier this week. She's a homeless woman who found 10 Grand in a purse and turned it into the cops: www.CBC.ca/news/canada/calgary/story/2012/10/11/calgary-purse-shelter-thousands.html
