Hallmark Cards Lays Off 200 Canadian Employees

Hot on the heels of the terrible news that GM will be closing its truck plant in Oshawa I just heard on the radio that Hallmark is laying off 200 Canadian employees from its Toronto area operation.

It appears that the pine cone peso (Canadian dollar) reaching par, and at times exceeding the USA dollar is finally starting to effect the Canadian manufacturing scene as jobs disappear to countries like Mexico where it is cheaper for these companies to operate.

It really is sad as the Hallmark building was a familiar sight to me for many years when I travelled along the 401.

Apparently the employees were told of the job cuts via a video from the president in their cafeteria.

Puppy Mill Busted In West Toronto

According to CTV News at Noon a Puppy Mill was busted earlier today in the Dundas and Roncesvalles area of Toronto. The pups that were to be sold at up to $500.00 bux are shitzu, and pug, both very popular breeds these days.

They along with their poor Mom were rescued from very disgusting conditions.

Puppy mills, and their brokers really make me ANGRY.

Here are some tips for buying a dog that should help you avoid puppy mills, and stop their profiteering off of the misery of living creatures.

DO NOT BUY FROM PET STORES.
I cannot stress that enough.

DO NOT Buy animals from internet classified sites. eBay has always wisely avoided supporting puppy mills by not allowing animals to be sold through them. Kudos to eBay!!!

DO NOT BUY your dog at a flea market or on the side of the road outside of vans.

Do consider animal rescue. All pure breeds are available through rescue, but I admit I am partial to mutts. :D

PetFinder
will hook you up with your new family member. It is easy to search and find great dogs right in your own neighbourhood!

If you must buy from a breeder:

Ask to see both parents of the pups, in person (the Mom for sure - all good breeder will allow for this, and not make up excuses why you cannot)

Ask to see the pup's litter mates, in person, not in just photos

Ask to see where the pup is living again go there, and see it in person

Ask for the name of the parents vet, and the name of the vet who checked the pups.

DO NOT allow for the dog to be shipped to you. You must go to him or her to accomplish exactly what I have listed above.

Since we do not have effective laws to deal with these shady businesses we as consumers are the only ones with the power to shut down these disgusting, and horrific operations by refusing to buy from them, and those who support them.

Property Management In Chicago

I was having a look at a website earlier this morning that details Connected Property Management's role as effective Illinois community association management and the need for honest, good quality service that benefits both the building owners, and the tenants.

I have never owned a rental unit before, but I have been on the other end as a renter, and therefore have a good understanding of how important the relationship between owners, and tenants is to the overall success of the rental agreement, and the importance of the role the property management team plays in that relationship.

Connected Property Management offers clients its expertise within Chicago association management. The website, which I spent time reading through this morning offers detailed information on how this company started out, what it has learned, and why the importance of an honest, cost effective Chicago Illinois condominium association along with much more. This company was started out by a fellow rental unit owner, and therefore brings that added bit of experience to the table in order to fully understand, and anticipate their clients needs.

If you have surfed on over to this page, and are looking for some good, solid info on condo rentals in chicago or apartments in chicago I have added these linkys in to help you get started. This site includes a property search as well as other tenant resources, and it is free to use! You can't beat that!

Happy Renting!
