    Potential strikes that could affect the Canadian economy-

    Dr. Charlebois (you know him from many newspaper, media and social media appearance on food issues)sounds the alarm about goods movement in Canada in jeopardy of rail strike action next month: CHARLEBOIS: The invisible lifeline of Canada's economy may be in trouble (msn.com)

    Canada Border Services Agency's employees had until May 15 to vote on strike action---and the outcome is to be determined with potential for strike in June (which would affect land and air travel):9,000 border service workers could walk off job as of June (thestar.com)

    And in the arena where Canada Revenue Agency presides over taxation issues in Canada, a recent situation about foreign landlords of properties in Canada that have not paid taxes got publicity as one landlord's tenant got a letter from the CRA asking tenant to withhold 25% of rent and submit it to the CRA to pay for landlord's tax obligations. Another tenant at a different property got a similar letter. Feds clarify CRA confusion over non-resident landlord taxes (thestar.com)

    I missed knowing that Gate Gourmet employees had a contract to vote on at the end of April 2024:

    Ontario's Safe Streets Act was taken to court by a legal clinic. The Justice struck down parts of the Act but upheld other parts in regards to panhandling and where it can be done. Still not permissible to ask for money while on the roadways.

    If you are a Canadian with a service dog or pet dog planning to travel with the dog to the United States this summer, become familiar with new travel rules for dogs coming into effect on August 1, 2024:

    Ok. I'll admit I was waiting to see when Red Lobster Canada was going to state whether the chain was going to stay in business or close. I did not know that it is headquartered in the state of Delaware, USA.

    https://ca.yahoo.com/finance/news/se...182543286.html

    An application will be brought before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice on May 28 to have the U.S. bankruptcy recognized and enforced in Canada, Canadian counsel Linc Rogers confirmed to CBC News on Thursday.Red Lobster Canada, Inc., a Delaware-incorporated company that owns and operates Red Lobster restaurants across Canada, was part of the Chapter 11 filing in the U.S. It's listed as a "related debtor" in the filing.
    "There is currently a stay in proceedings in place in Canada preventing any creditor from taking action in Canada against [Red Lobster] Canada and certain affiliated entities," Rogers wrote.

    The United Kingdom's citizens will be expected to vote on July 4 after Prime Minister Rishi Sunak called for an election:

    It will be fought on the first set of new constituency boundaries since 2
    010, redrawn to reflect population changes since then, and will be the first where voters have to show ID.
    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-69050450

    Speaking of showing ID, earlier in May 2024, former Prime Minister Boris Johnson did not have his ID on his person when he went to vote. He was the one who brought in the ID rule. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-68947834
    According to the Electoral Commission, about 14,000 people were unable to vote in last year's local elections in England as a result of the new rules.
    There are 22 acceptable forms of ID, including passports, driving licences, older or Disabled Person's bus passes and Oyster 60+ cards.
    Oyster cards are smartcards used for public transit.
