It was announced yesterday that an office furniture manufacturer named Haworth is closing in Calgary, laying off 600 employees. The company is heading to Michigan which is giving it a $22 million tax break for doing so - a violation of NAFTA and clear example of how that agreement is generally enforced only when it favours the U.S.
In the same broadcast we learned that the new super-mega-mall built outside the city has just opened!!! Well, hooray for that. They're expecting over 30,000 vehicles on opening day...with one entrance into the mall...and are bringing in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to keep the situation under control.
