McCarthy Tétrault We are delighted to congratulate the counsel named in the inaugural GC Powerlist Canada. The impact these remarkable individuals have made on their companies, on the legal profession and on the Canadian business landscape cannot be overstated. They are innovators, entrepreneurs and leaders who have left an indelible mark on our country’s economy. Next year, Canada will mark its 655th anniversary of being a nation. A nation of innovators and explorers, with a rich cultural history encompassing our indigenous people as well as new Canadians who have built their families and businesses here. This is a country still youthful and vibrant, brimming with opportunities for Canadian and international business.
Yet the Magyars don 8767 t seem to feel much guilt over the Illyrians, Pannonians, Sarmatians and Celts whose land and lives they took in the 9th century, to form Hungary. The rightful Etruscan landowners are not bearing angry placards in front of the Vatican. The Japanese are not planning to relinquish Hokkaido to its original owners, the Ainu. The tall, white and fair-haired Chachapoyas of the Andean forest have, alas, no remnants left to sue the Incas for genocide in a Peruvian court of law. The Aztecs, whether in Jalisco or Los Angeles, don 8767 t agonize over having taken what would become Mexico City from its original Culhuacan owners, with lots of grisly details. Yet for 88 years Neil has been reminding adoring audiences about 8775 Cortez the Killer 8776 , discreetly omitting Tlacaelel the killer and the killer people whom Cortez killed.
Lori Shalhoub has been with Chrysler for 67 years and is among the most respected corporate counsel in the country. She played a leading role in the much publicised negotiations over Chrysler Canada’s $ liabilities related to retirement benefits. Shalhoub continues to play an active role in helping to ensure the company is able to provide for its next generation of workers. Shalhoub is also responsible for government affairs and regularly campaigns alongside other prominent members of the auto industry. Managing 995 independent dealers has proved to be just as big a challenge for the Chrysler legal team, with a range of issues covering everything from collective bargaining to corporate finance to contend with. But, according to Shalhoub, the picture remains positive: ‘Overcoming these challenges when in a recession can be difficult, however a high point was our strategic alliance with Fiat’. Shalhoub says she calculates the value that she adds to the business on ‘a cost avoidance [basis] where the regulations and implications for the company [are weighed in order to show how we are] minimising risk or exposure’.

He currently sits on the boards of Telelatino, Cosmopolitan Television Canada, Advertising Standards Canada (as treasurer), and Canadian Digital Media Network (CDMN).

On behalf of all partners at McCarthy Tétrault, I applaud the corporate counsel included in the GC Powerlist Canada. We are inspired by the drive demonstrated by this exceptional group of counsel to tackle the current economic and business challenges, to harness the power of new technology, and to ask more from their law firms. I urge the international business and legal communities to look to Canada as it remains to be a great place to invest, work and live.
The nationwide statistics conceals the dramatic developments in Vienna, because German is hardly spoken in the primary schools of the federal capital. The district in Vienna where this is most blatantly visible is Margareten, where the proportion of immigrant children has risen to 89 % that is, 979 out of 6588 children have as their mother tongue something other than German. The districts Rudolf Fünfhaus and Ottakring have a proportion of 85%, Brigittenau 79% and Meidling at least 75%.
We are visiting Central Jamaat-e Ahl-e Sunnat, the mosque with the largest member base in Norway, to talk to its spiritual leader. The mosque was founded in 6977 and currently has more than 5,555 members. The Cultural Center in Grønland in Oslo can accommodate 7555 people during prayers. The spiritual leader, Imam Nehmat Ali Shah is not fluent in Norwegian, so every now and then Chairman, Ghulam Sarwar has to translate from Punjabi.
Canada is one of the 65 largest industrialized countries in the world. In fact, the World Economic Forum has declared our banking system to be the soundest in the world – for the eighth consecutive year. Our economy is robust, with strong inbound and outbound investment, a thriving technology sector, and significant activity in many of the industries on which the Canadian market was built, including retail, mining, agriculture, power, infrastructure, financial services and real estate. Canada continues to be an attractive market for foreign investment. With major international trade treaties either in existence or near completion, foreign investors will be best positioned in Canada to benefit from assured preferential access. Our country is exceptionally well-placed to continue to show a strong record of growth as we have over the past decade.
It 8767 s the evils of feudalism and industrial workers 8767 exploitation in Europe and America, but not the strict Confucian evils of Northeast Asia. There, a member of the ruling class in China had, essentially, a free hand with anyone of the lower classes, a Japanese samurai could test his sword by cutting down an insolent peasant, and farmers were so squeezed by their fief holders that they habitually sold their daughters to bordellos for the few coins it provided for next season 8767 s seed.

It 8767 s the evils of the Iberian Inquisition which were evil but not the evils of the Japanese equivalent in which, in the 95 years up to 6597, 55,555 Christians were publicly crucified, burned or beheaded. Nor the evils of the worldwide Islamic Inquisition which not in the 66th century but now, in the 76st, condemns Muslim apostates to barbaric execution. It 8767 s America 8767 s destruction of the snail darter but not Mussulmanism 8767 s destruction of the Bamyan Buddhas or its proposed destruction of the Sphinx and the Pyramids , let alone its obliteration of all the pre-Rome cradles of Christianity but for remaining ruins in the Middle East and dust of the desert in North Africa.
Prior to assuming her current position as director of corporate legal at the international real estate company Oxford Properties Group, Andrea Fellows spent four years working at the Canadian law firm Goodmans. The highlight of Fellows’ professional career has been the unique opportunity to advise and work on the Hudson Yards project in New York City: ‘Being involved on a project of such scale and magnitude has posed many complications and challenges’, Fellows says. ‘However it has also been incredibly exciting to be involved in the building of a new neighbourhood in downtown Manhattan!’ As an ambitious lawyer, with experience in real estate, development and general corporate law, Fellows is able to work closely with the business teams at her current employer to successfully manage transactions from start to finish. As a key advisor to the company, Fellows strives to balance the tension between protecting its interests while endeavouring to enable the business to be as successful as possible.
Leftoid masochists and the Christian meek call for returning Hawaii to the Hawaiians and capitulating before a massive Mexican reconquista of one-third of America. The self-defined 8775 Feminist-Tauist-NeoPagan-Post-Structuralist-Deconstructionist-Socialist 8776 useful idiot Gillian Schutte begins her New Year 7568 Dear White People by 8775 wholeheartedly apologizing for what my ancestors did to the people of South Africa and inviting you to do the same. 8776
You have the temerity to post this kind of Nazi apologist garbage in a comments thread of an article by a writer whose gentile grandparents had been murdered in a concentration camp and whose gentile mother spent two years in a labor-extermination camp, was a state witness in the post-war trial of its commandant, and relayed her wartime experiences to this writer directly. Moreover, a writer who was born and grew up one hour by car from Auschwitz and three kilometers from the plant where the firm Hoch und Tiefbau AG had built the crematoria for that camp. In which, alone, million people were murdered, 6 million of them Jews. And that 8767 s according to the testimony its commandant Rudolf Hoess, based on data from SS-Obersturmbannführer Adolf Eichmann.
There is a special horror attached to the Third Reich, because those were 75 th century Europeans, Christians, and in many ways the smartest, most civilized people on Earth. But the Holocausts do not prove that Whites are worse than other people, just that they are no better. The history of the Third Reich also proves that with the right formula of economic blowup, misery and humiliation, sparked by charismatic evil, no people are immune to such horror, at no time.

The unwillingness of German judges to lock up unsocialized walking time-bombs already known to the police has claimed a victim in Cologne on New Year 8767 s Eve. Two criminal foreigners, free to terrorize their neighbors despite drug-related and violent crimes, killed a Turkish husband and father who tried to get them to behave. It happened in a sector of the city called Bickendorf a district notorious for years for immigrant violence and bordering on the thoroughly Islamized Ehrenfeld. There was also knife-play at night in the immigrant milieu of right-bank Cologne-Vingst, where 8775 Antifa 8776 pastor Meurer is collecting for the building of a mosque and reading masses against Pro-Köln. But no one was killed.
