Even as the people of Quebec back away from a commitment to independence, the rest of Canada is blocking other doors. The present Quebec government's reluctant decision to hold a binding referendum on the matter by Oct. 26 appears reaffirmed rather than weakened by a national parliamentary committee's blueprint for broader provincial powers and special status for Quebec.Most Canadians seem to think that the 131-page report by a Canadian unity committee of the lower house of the federal parliament, made up of the three leading federal parties, goes too far. Yet not only Jacques Parizeau, leader of the separatist Quebecois Party in the French-speaking province, but also its federalist-minded premier, Robert Bourassa, denounced the new formula as giving too little to Quebec.

In the new Canadian parliament, Prime Minister Jean Chretien's Liberal mandate is to save Canada's social safety net, and to save Canada. Curiously, the two goals are intertwined.English-speaking Canadians who have no desire to become Americans contrast their generous welfare and unemployment insurance with practices in this country, and their state health system with ours. Yet during the recession, both are in trouble and driving each country into deficit. Mr. Chretien means to save the system through skillful paring.

None of the members of Tokyo Police Club were even alive when "Rock Lobster" was released. But just a day after the 30-year-old group the B-52s perform at the 9:30 club, this young Canadian foursome will take the stage at the Washington venue. The show is part of the headlining tour they began to promote the new album "Champ," following a supporting tour opening for the English electronic band Passion Pit. It's a sign, if anything, of the new New Wave band's mega-fast, five-year rise to success on the back of a bunch of tracks that, at least in spirit, are not that different from Schneider and company.

Jim Balsillie apparently isn't the only Canadian businessman interested in purchasing the Phoenix Coyotes. The Toronto Globe and Mail reported that Montreal businessman Steve Stotland is leading a group of investors that wants to buy the team and keep it in Glendale, Ariz. The paper also reported that Stotland was involved in a group that attempted to purchase the Canadiens in 2001 and again earlier this year. NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly did not deny the report.

Randy Lancaster was at his desk when the computer monitor began to wobble and the floor of his Bowie office building started to sway. He and his colleagues jumped from their seats, scanning hallways and peering out fourth-floor windows. They suspected furniture movers or high winds, but the cause was more unusual: an earthquake. Had they known, Lancaster said, the group of ITT Corp. engineers "probably would have run out of the building." Lancaster was among the many Marylanders to report feeling the effects of a 5.0-magnitude quake with an epicenter near Ottawa that sent shockwaves along the East Coast on Wednesday.

In electing Prime Minister Jean Chretien and his Liberals to a third term, a solid majority of Canadians remained true to their hearts and chose to uphold the values and philosophy that have successfully guided their nation throughout the modern era. Yanks who pay a proper amount of attention to...

As a practicing physician for over 40 years, I was saddened and disappointed to read that our own U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski lead the effort to successfully defeat a Senate amendment that would have made it easier for individuals to get prescription drugs from Canada for general use. She argued that "opening the borders to Canadian-made drugs could endanger American consumers. " "We could be importing death," she was quoted as saying. Shame on you, Senator Mikulski! Contrary to rumors from the pharmaceutical lobbyists, Canadians are not dying in the streets from poisoned medications.

A Canadian software giant has paid an undisclosed sum for G.1440 LLC, a Baltimore-based consulting, software and marketing firm that has been part of the area's technology industry since the late 1990s. A subsidiary of Constellation Software Inc., a publicly traded company in Toronto, bought the assets of G.1440 in an all-cash deal from its majority stakeholder, Sinclair Broadcast Group, which owns and operates nearly 60 television stations across the United States. Officials for both companies expected G.1440's strategy and management team to stay in place, without job cuts in Baltimore.
