According to Research from British group Stonewall, nearly one in five lesbian and gay people, almost 350,000 employees in Britain, have experienced bullying from their colleagues because of their sexual orientation.

Whether you’re heading out for a camping trip or visiting family, the B.C. government, police and ICBC are asking you to give yourself plenty of time and focus on the road this long weekend.
Every year over the May long weekend, an average of two people are killed and 490 injured in 1,700 crashes throughout B.C.
Police will be targeting all high-risk driving behaviours this long weekend including failing to yield, speeding, following too closely and ignoring a traffic control device, as part of this month’s high-risk driving campaign. These driving behaviours contribute to almost half (44 per cent) of all police-reported crashes that result in injuries or fatalities on our roads.

Canadian home buyers with small downpayments face a hike in mortgage insurance premiums next week. But market watchers say the increases likely won’t be enough to slow sales in what has lately been a hot housing market in many areas, helped in large part by historically low mortgage rates.
In February, CMHC announced it would hike premiums for default insurance by an average of 15 per cent effective May 1. The increase would hit buyers who have a downpayment of less than 20 per cent. Soon after CMHC served notice of the increase, private sector competitors Genworth Canada and Canada Guaranty matched the increases.
