Summer 2014: Enjoying a day of fun at Polson Pier
The Diamond & Diamond team enjoyed a day of fun (and sun) at Polson Pier, home to Cabana Pool Bar, where they participated in a number of team building activities followed by a lunch on the water. Check out the gallery below to see the team in action:

Bridge
The drunk driver that crashed into the Skyway bridge last week has elicited extreme reactions from all those inconvenienced, including my clerk Atifa who was stuck in traffic for over 3 hours. I, unfortunately, was also stuck due to a horrific car accident on Bathurst. Today, I see on the news a motorcyclist has succumb to his…

Summer Dangers
Sun Media Being Canadian, we are so happy to get outdoors during the summer months that we sometimes forget the dangers. After being cooped up all winter long, we are anxious to cottage, boat, hike etc. The problem is that these pursuits can be dangerous and after a long winter, with little or no maintenance…

Which is Safer: Air Travel or Car Travel?
Sun Media With all the tragic plane crashes dominating the headlines, we are all left wondering if it is safe to travel by air. The short answer is, of course. It is still safer to travel by airplane than by cars. The World Health Organization estimated in 2013 that 1.24 million people died in car accidents…

Tired Driving: Not Worth the Risk
Sun Media In light of the Tracy Morgan lawsuit, I thought I would address fatigued driving. This often occurs when a person is sleep deprived. Drowsydriving.org states that driving fatigued is almost the same as driving while impaired. Your response time is lessened, you have problems processing information, your mood is affected and your agility is compromised. In the…

Black Boxes in Surgery Rooms
Sun Media St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto has tried a pilot project to allow black box-type technology in the operating room.  There are good and bad points to this project, but overall I think it is a good measure.   While I do not love the idea of invading the privacy of surgeons while doing their work…

Care and Control
Sun Media The tragic passing of Prashant Tiwari late last month while in the care of Brampton Civic Hospital is heartbreaking for friends and family. While I cannot comment specifically about this case, I can say, in general, when someone under a disability is in the care or control of an institution they have to…

Trauma Season
Sun Media Yes now in the somewhat summer months is trauma season. If you do not believe me pass by Sunnybrook. The hospital has a sign out that warns people not to end up on their stretchers. Surprised? Thought the winter was bad? Most people do. I think as Canadians we learn to drive in…

Assault Is No Laughing Matter
Sun Media Let’s get this straight – you cannot hit anyone for any reason, even if you think it is funny. So outside of Brad Pitt getting smacked by someone clearly trying to get attention, there was also another story of the Kardashians who had confetti poured on them by a clown. Despite personal feelings about that clan,…

Delightful Weather, Frightful Driving
Sun Media Spring is here, we see more fatalities on our roadways. It has already started. How do we prevent them? The answer is simple: Don’t do silly things on the road. Here is a list of dos and don’ts. It is not exhaustive, but I will certainly hit the top ones: Do not drink and…
