Canada’s Td Bank Plots £8 Billion Raid On Rbs U.s. Arm: Paper

Analysts have said that a full sale of the U.S. business could raise as much as 8 billion pounds. Toronto-Dominion is one of a number of parties to have been linked with a takeover of the business, but Chief Executive Ed Clark dismissed the idea in February, saying that a deal would not meet his bank’s stated criteria for acquisitions.

Harper’s Canada: Hypocrisy And Double Standards

Abbott said he considered Sri Lanka to be a friend. David Cameron snubbed Harper months ago. The Queens decision to send her son Prince Charles to Sri Lanka to represent her is also seen as a new beginning for the Commonwealth. Harper has failed to see that move by the British monarchy. Hugh Segal, one of Harpers men who visited Sri Lanka recently last week, stooped to the lowest level and called a very highly respected former Indian diplomat, Secretary General of the Commonwealth, Kamlesh Sharma a stooge.Sources close to Harper say that Segal had the blessings of the Canadian Prime Minister to call Sharma a stooge of the Sri Lankan government. Sources further pointed out that Harper had isolated himself and Canada on the world stage by his foolishness and immaturity. No sense of foreign relations Harper and his highly inexperienced Foreign Minister John Baird have no sense of foreign relations. They have completely ignored the advice given by several senior Canadian diplomats on improving relations with Sri Lanka. Harper and Baird are considered restless and inexperienced and are no match for the Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa who is known to hail from a family involved in politics for over 67 years.The President himself has been in politics for over 45 years and is considered the most successful Sri Lankan President ever. Rajapaksa, unlike his predecessors, has made a name for himself on the world stage for his boldness, strong convictions and his leadership. He is loved and hailed by the Sri Lankan masses and has won many elections. He is on his second term as the President of Sri Lanka. Harpers Baird is no match for the Sri Lankan Foreign Minister Prof. G L Peiris, a professor of law and a buddy of former American President Bill Clinton from his Harvard days. Both Harper and Baird recently came under fire from the leader of one of the smallest islands in the world, the Maldives, for interfering in affairs of their country.

Canada’s Alice Munro Wins Nobel Literature Prize

Her stories are usually set in Ontario, her home province. Among her best-known is “The Bear Came Over the Mountain,” about a woman who begins losing her memory and agrees with her husband that she should be put in a nursing home. Canadian actress-director Sarah Polley adapted the story into the 2006 film “Away from Her,” starring Julie Christie. The narrative begins in a relatively tender, traditional mood. But we soon learn that the husband has been unfaithful in the past and didn’t always regret it “What he felt was mainly a gigantic increase in well-being.” The wife, meanwhile, has fallen for a man at the nursing home. In the story “Dimensions,” Munro introduces a chambermaid named Doree, who needs to take three buses for a visit to a “facility” outside Clinton, Ontario. Munro explains that Doree is happy in her work, that she has been told she is “young and decent looking” and that her picture was once in the newspaper, in the days when her spiked blonde hair was wavy and brown. “Dimensions” begins in close-up, then steadily pulls back. With every page, the story darkens, and terrifies. The “facility” is an institution where Doree’s husband is held. Doree’s picture was in the paper because her husband murdered their children.
