Canadians still not knowledgeable about RRSPs, TFSAs: survey

While Canadians are prioritizing saving as they continue to navigate the challenges of the global coronavirus pandemic amid expectations of rising inflation in the coming year, just over two-thirds (64 per cent) know the difference between a registered retirement savings plan and a tax-free savings account, according to a new survey by the Bank of Montreal. -BenefitsCanada.com

Truckers fighting government vaccine mandate march to Canadian capital

A convoy of truckers started their march from Vancouver on Sunday to the Canadian capital city of Ottawa protesting the government's COVID-19 vaccine mandate for truckers, which the industry says would create driver shortages and fuel inflation. The convoy is expected to reach Ottawa on Jan. 29. Canada imposed the vaccine mandate for the trucking industry from Jan. 15, under which unvaccinated Canadian truckers re-entering Canada from the United States must get tested for COVID-19 and quarantine themselves. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has resisted industry pressure to delay the mandate since it was first announced in November.-Reuters

A Tennessee school board removed the graphic novel 'Maus,' about the Holocaust from curriculum

"Maus," the Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel about the experiences of Holocaust survivors, has been removed from an eighth-grade English language arts curriculum by a Tennessee school board over concerns about "rough, objectionable language" and a drawing of a nude woman. The McMinn County Board of Education voted 10-0 to remove the book from the curriculum, saying it should be replaced, if possible, with another book without content deemed objectionable. "Maus" is a graphic novel by comic artist Art Spiegelman that follows his Jewish parents in 1940s Poland from their early experiences of anti-Semitism to their internment in Auschwitz. The members of the school board heard from English language arts instructional supervisors about why the book was being used in the curriculum, the meeting minutes show. Board member Tony Allman took issue with how the content would be redacted, and added, "We don't need to enable or somewhat promote this stuff. It shows people hanging, it shows them killing kids, why does the educational system promote this kind of stuff? It is not wise or healthy," according to the meeting minutes. In response, instructional supervisor Julie Goodin countered, "I was a history teacher, and there is nothing pretty about the Holocaust, and, for me, this was a great way to depict a horrific time in history," the meeting minutes say. -CNN
