….”Canada sees surge in asylum seekers from U.S.”….”One in four Canadians report missing work for lack of sleep”…”Decor trends: unexpected hues to take over your home in 2017″…
Apparently the number of ultimately refugee claimants illegally crossing the USA/Canada land border into Canada to claim asylum is skyrocketing. “In Quebec alone, the number has tripled in the past year. Under the U.S.-Canada pact, introduced in 2004, refugees cannot make asylum claims in both countries, clogging the system. CBSA (Canada Border Services Agency) says “we are concerned about our border security and the safety of the people. These are border jumpers, not immigrants or refugees, yet.”
A difficult situation, no doubt, exacerbated by the ‘Trump phenomenon’.
SOMETHING ABOUT….“Canadians are in the midst of a sleep-deprivation crisis”, apparently.
SOMETHING ABOUT…“2017 may have kicked off with a cold snap, but indoors, it’s all about feeling bright and airy. While the cool minimalism appeal of previous seasons will undoubtedly remain popular, home decor experts says we will be seeing a bit more colour and print than has been on display in recent seasons. Trends will be “moodier” than other years thanks to hues such as deep blue and purple.”
