CONSUMERS IN NEWFOUNDLAND SHOULD BE WORRIED

Around 10 years ago, insurance was a hot topic in Newfoundland. Rates had risen sharply, customers were upset, insurance reform was debated and the government introduced additional legislation which it hoped would help control costs, protect consumers and keep rates down. Since then, we've seen a relatively stable market for personal insurance. Coverage has been available at a reasonable cost, except for the most high risk scenarios. Prices for automobile insurance, while still by far the highest in Atlantic Canada, have continued to increase, but for most consumers, at a manageable level.

DOCTORS NOTES: ARE YOUR EMPLOYEES SICK OR JUST DISENGAGED?

A story recently ran on CBC about the strain being placed on workloads for Doctors issuing sick notes for short term illnesses. CBCNL Physician says local MDs are 'drowning in paperwork' because of requests for sick notes http://t.co/6Dv1Rhnu8y 2/27/2014, 6:50 AM It certainly elicited a lot of comment on social media. Certainly, there have been stories written in the past about the amount of sick leave taken/accumulated in certain government departments/agencies. Ignoring the whole debate around union benefits/collective bargaining, and the inflexibility this may cause, I think there is some perspective most small and medium-sized businesses can take around this.

POST #DARKNL – LESSONS LEARNED – GET PREPARED

Now that there is perceived stability in our power supply once again, the fall-out from the last week’s event is clear. We've had Government order a review of the operation and management of our electrical system, phone-in radio shows are jammed with consumers complaining and social media is ablaze with political pundits of every stripe with their take on the situation and arguing over whether or not we experienced a crisis.

“TIS THE SEASON TO SLIP AND FALL”

The complaining has begun. It’s a tradition in Newfoundland to talk about the weather. Common statements this time of the year include: “Winter’s early this year.” “It’s some slippery out.” “The sidewalks are like ice.”
