CETA approves Canada

A spokesman for Trade Minister Chrystia Freeland greets the news positively and says Canada had “done its job,” but there was still work to do

Canada’s trade deal with Europe has taken a critical step to becoming a reality but a wary International Trade Minister Chrystia Freeland is warning that hurdles remain.

Belgium on Thursday agreed to sign on to the Canada-European Union trade deal after resolving internal differences that had delayed Thursday’s planned signing ceremony.

After days of tension and last-minute negotiations, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel confirmed that the impasse over the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement had been broken.

Freeland on Thursday hailed the announcement as a positive step in a week marked by dramatic ups and downs that had left the agreement – seven years in the making – in limbo. Read Mo‪re...

Here's the Trick Amazon Uses to Brainstorm Amazing Ideas

It's all about figuring out where to start

Business has been booming for Amazon, and the future looks bright.

One of the surprise contributors to this success is the Amazon Echo, a smart speaker that's capable of answering your questions, playing back music and podcasts, and controlling smart devices in your home.

Disclosure: I don't own an Echo, and I made fun of its debut (because I found the initial ads pretty creepy). But the device has gotten rave reviews from major outlets like CNET, Recode, and The New York Times, to name just a few. And on Amazon.com, it's received more than 44,000 reviews to date, with an average rating of 4.5 stars (out of five).

So how exactly did the Echo come to be?

It seems that the Amazon team started with a form of strategic thinking known as retrograde analysis.

Or, as it's more commonly known, working backwards. Read Mo‪re...

Why Canada’s Tourism Sector is Set to Take Off

Canada’s Tourism Sector is Set to Take Off

Hotels, airlines, tour operators and restaurants are set to reap the upside of a low loonie and low oil prices, as more and more travelers flock here on holiday

decade ago, amid a global commodity boom, then-prime minister Stephen Harper called Canada an “emerging energy superpower.” And so it was, until slowing demand for natural resources in China and a related drop in the price of oil and other raw materials saw Canada’s economy tank in 2015.

With no turnaround in sight, Canadians are finally appreciating that the country needs to transition from commodities to grow our economy. Poised for particular growth is tourism, one of a few sectors benefiting from a Canadian dollar that’s tumbled in lock-step with oil’s decline. Read Mo‪re...
