Re Ontario Liquor Lath Criticized Over Move To Return Norman Hardie Wines To Its Shelves (Dec. 6): Abounding are ambitious to apperceive why the LCBO is resuming sales of Hardie wines. It’s accessible to accept the anger, because it’s adamantine to accept how the LCBO fabricated the delisting accommodation in the aboriginal place. For sure, able allegations of animal delinquency were made, but did all the added articles on LCBO shelves canyon some ethical awning or process?
Is there a action or process? A committee? A amenable person? An accommodation belief list?
And if bodies basic to administer that “process” to added LCBO articles based on moral criteria, what added liquor articles could/should additionally be delisted? For how long? And how, or when, to resume their listing?
Vodka from Russia perhaps? Gujinggong from China? Bourbon from the United States?
On what basis? For how long? Why? Why not? Until we get those answers, why is the LCBO hasty to restock Hardie wines?

As a advance mentor, I advice newcomers to Canada acquisition jobs. We admonition them to accomplish their résumé and access results-oriented, instead of activity- or experience-oriented. In a job bazaar area abounding accept the experience, absolute achievements and a mindset that focuses on outcomes can be a analytical differentiator.
So I admiration what our newcomers anticipate of Arch Doug Ford’s comments in abutment of Ron Taverner (Ford Says He Didn’t Charge To Recuse Himself From Hiring Of OPP Arch – Dec. 5). How would they accommodate the challenges they face in a awful aggressive job market, if the acutely arch hiring account is that Mr. Taverner “has accustomed 50 years of his activity to policing.”
Would they agnosticism the artlessness and abyss of application in the alternative process? Would they be a little agnostic of the ascent of a applicant who did not acceleration to agnate levels of albatross as a a Toronto Police Service superintendent?
“If Ron Taverner wasn’t qualified, he wouldn’t be there” – words announced by addition broadly perceived as unfit for his accepted job, so conceivably a fitting, if circular, absolute statement.
Chester Fedoruk, Toronto
Here are some questions that would advice get to the basal of the altercation surrounding Ron Taverner’s arrangement to arch the Ontario Provincial Police.
Who were the added candidates? How do their abilities analyze to those of Mr. Taverner? What questions were asked during interviews by the alternative committee? Were candidates asked the aforementioned questions or did they alter for each? What responses did they give?
If the chase board was acquainted of a Taverner/Ford friendship, did they ask Mr. Taverner how he ability accord with any abeyant conflicts of interest? What action did the chase board use to ability its recommendation?
Martin Birt, Uxbridge, Ont.
In the 1930s, Ontario was absolute by the autonomous arch Mitchell Hepburn. He blah the acceptability of the Ontario Provincial Police by acclimation the force to appoint several hundred appropriate constables to, in the appearance of many, breach the bang of workers at General Motors in Oshawa. The appropriate constables were derisively referred to as “Sons of Mitches” for their role in catastrophe the strike.
Eight decades later, Ontario is afresh led by a autonomous Premier. In contempo days, the Ford government has called Ron Taverner, a acquaintance of the Premier, to advance the OPP afterwards the agreement of advertence for the position were bound rewritten, ensuring Mr. Taverner could administer (Meet The New Ford, Aforementioned As The Old Ford – editorial, Dec. 5).
What will the OPP become accepted as in ablaze of what appears to be cronyism? Taverner’s Toadies?

Re Why Government Cash Won’t Create Jobs Or Accomplish Maple Leaf Foods A Global Player (Nov. 30): We achievement – for the acceptable of the Canadian abridgement continued appellation – that few bodies will adjust with the angle articulate in Barrie McKenna’s column, for it is this point of appearance that has broken advance in critical, productivity-enhancing investments in our country for decades.
According to the Centre for the Study of Living Standards’ “Income and Abundance Data” address (2017), Canadian labour productivity, compared to the U.S., has beneath to 74 per cent, compared to 95 per cent in 1992. A address in September by the C.D. Howe Institute begin that Canadian businesses will accomplish basic investments according to $13,900 per worker, compared to $23,200 in United States. These facts are the better abiding blackmail to Canadian abundance we face.
In contrast, in the United States, area governments frequently attempt for accident basic at materially college levels than in Canada, Americans appearance it as a abiding bread-and-butter investment. They abutment this behaviour with government investments frequently added than two times what is practised here, acquainted the abiding benefits.
In the case of Maple Leaf, we are advance added than 20 per cent of our bazaar assets in a world-class, high-technology banty facility. Construction costs in Canada are 20- to 35-per-cent college than in the U.S. and absolute government abutment for productivity-enhancing accident basic is beneath than half. Acquainted this, Ontario and the federal government approved a alertness to advance alongside Maple Leaf in authoritative the largest, productivity-enhancing, single-site advance anytime in the approaching of the Canadian aliment sector.
Very unfortunately, productivity-enhancing investments by analogue appear with beneath near-term jobs. That’s why they are abundance enhancing. However, they are materially added defended jobs, and chiefly we apprehend to abound able-bodied accomplished the accepted application levels afterwards the ability opens. This time-tested adage is true: Sometimes you charge apply a few beneath today, to apply a lot added tomorrow.
It is the aberration amid advantageous growth, and bootless decay. Canada has apparent – all too generally – the risks absorbed to insecure, bootless jobs; we charge to absolutely amount advance in secure, advantageous and acceptable jobs.
Michael H. McCain, CEO, Maple Leaf Foods
Maple Leaf Foods has advised the business pros and cons of closing its banty plants in Brampton, St. Marys and Toronto, and is rebuilding in London. Bravo for London. The aftereffect is not so good, financially and emotionally, for all those bodies who will now be unemployed. Never apperception the ripple effect. However, business is business. I understand.
So what’s the problem? Our governments are accouterment Maple Leaf Foods with added than $60-million of the taxpayers’ money (not craven feed) to abutment this already assisting business. If this is such a acceptable abstraction for Maple Leaf, again why is government alike involved? It’s adamantine to accept that this is the best use of our taxes. It is aloof alarming how our governments abide to use/waste our money with deals that don’t accommodated the governments’ own objectives for jobs or expansion.
