They'll be squashed or folded into the Greens. After losing Labour to the Liberals they're running on empty on all accounts.

But it is, you are just interested in posting, be damned if others have already, and either advocate for or rant against it, rather than join the conversation and add to it with citations.

Winnipeg selected for new Amazon delivery centre

A trillion-dollar e-commerce giant has chosen to build and operate a new delivery centre in Winnipeg.

On Monday, the provincial government confirmed Amazon's plans to build a 113,000-square-foot warehouse inside the Inkster Industrial Park, just northeast of Winnipeg's airport.

“Manitoba is a great place to do business and we thank Amazon for its investment and for showing confidence in our economy,” said Manitoba's economic development and training minister, Ralph Eichler.

The delivery station will create hundreds of full and part-time jobs in departments like: parcel sorting, management and third-party delivery services.

The facility will be used by Amazon to receive and sort parcels from other distribution centres.

“We are excited to continue our growth in Canada with our first Manitoba delivery station in Winnipeg,” said Tushar Kumar, Amazon Canada's regional director of logistics.

“This new delivery station will allow us to provide fast and efficient delivery for customers, and provide hundreds of job opportunities for the talented local workforce," Kumar continued.

The building is expected to be open for business in 2021.

Yes, but they are special. By the time its up and running, enough Filipino kids should have graduated to fill the jobs.

Canada banning single-use plastics

https://www.ctvnews.ca/climate-and-...single-use-items-by-the-end-of-2021-1.5135968


excellent!!!! The beautiful oceans are starting to suffocate with human debris.


And you honestly think this is going to make one iota of difference? You are completely delusional.



The few studies to estimate ocean plastic pollution suggest a handful of Asian countries are disproportionately responsible. A study by the Helmholtz Center for Environmental Research, in Germany, has been cited as saying that most ocean plastic comes from 10 rivers in Asia and Africa.

Another study, by the Jambeck Research Group at the University of Georgia, found that mismanaged plastic waste — the sort likely to land in oceans — would barely decrease if Europe and North America cut out all plastic.
