WINNIPEG – As Winnipeg Jets fans make their way to their seats and players prepare to stand on home ice for the national anthem, an announcement fills the downtown arena.
The message — believed to be a first for an NHL team — says the Jets play on Treaty 1 land which consists of “original territories of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples, and the homeland of the Métis Nation.”
OTTAWA – A top economic research organization says Canada’s beverage industry will have to do more than rely on recent trends to reach its target for reducing the calories people consume through soft drinks and similar products amid concerns over obesity rates.
The Conference Board of Canada says the daily consumption of calories through non-alcoholic and non-dairy beverages, not including coffee and tea, dropped by 20 per cent per capita between 2004 and 2014, largely because of the marketing of low-calorie options.
A group of 24 Winnipeg co-workers will each walk away with nearly $42,000 each after a recent Lotto Max win.
The group won the September 16 draw worth $1,000,022.
“One of the ladies in our group sent me a text really early in the morning, saying we had won on Maxmillions,” said Darlene Johanson, one of the winners. “So, the first thing I did when I woke up was check the ticket on my mobile app. Sure enough, we were winners!”
