Hence for the Prime minister wanted to help the eastern part by the means of controlling prices of oil on the west, introducing the national energy program. When Trudeau enacted The National Energy Program (NEP) it was initially intended to prosper Canadian economy by selling cheap oil. In fact, the “NEP” has imposed many western businesses to go bankrupt, provoked rebellious

Sadly, it fails to do so, mostly it is Allan Blooms views on the education process in American Universities/Colleges. If someone was to write a book called The Girl in the Pink Dress and it’s actually about a boy in a blue coveralls it wouldn’t be that good of a story. That’s how I feel about Nelson’s essay, almost like I have been tricked. Nelson’s only paragraph about Canadian education is way more than halfway through his essay. Neilson made a mistake by putting (North) in the title because that would suggest that the essays main topic is the North American education
Further, if the lumber mill was closed, it would add additional power to suppliers, who would be supplying 100% of the bark, instead of their current supply of approximately 50%. If the saw mill was closed, then the whole tree would not be used, therefore going against MacTara’s Corporate Social Responsibility strategy. 5. MacTara should expand their product line to reduce reliance on local sale of lumber and volatile commodity prices . They already have the necessary equipment in order to accomplish this task and there is a demand for value-added products in both Canadian and British market.
Public health officials requested that the government ban trans-fat and reduce sodium levels, but the government made no attempt at changing or stopping the release of fatty foods. At one point the government had ideas of how to control sodium which would save on health care costs and lengthen lives but decided against it due to financial consequences. The government’s inactivity gave way to the increasing level of health issues and obesity in Canadians. Some Canadians realize that they are unhealthy, but don’t realize the food they eat is the cause. Because of the absence of labels most Canadian’s don’t even know the nutritional value of the food they eat.
Investor’s say that the best portfolio to have is a diverse one; well, Viterra has done just that in not only operating on grain trade business, but by also strengthening their company by joining the retail and insurance markets. This enables them to maybe have a weak quarter in one sector, but still make up for losses in another. In executing this environmental scan we learned the importance of competition in the various industries and how it affects stakeholders involved. For example, when the contract was originally drawn up, Glencore was repeatedly questioned by Canadian farmers for their motives of purchasing Viterra. They were weary of the possibility of Glencore selling all the assets of Viterra in an attempt to flip the company; many producers would have went in an uproar because of the lack of competition that would exist following such a movement.
MRKT- 3001 In the case study of Saralyn Mills, the marketing strategy is not targeting the Canadian Province of Quebec. Sales have dropped in this area and it is believed by one of the product managers, Marie LaMans, that the Canadian marketing approach should be rearranged specifically for the Canadian French speaking audience. It is up to the marketing manager, Nicole Vichon, to approve the changes for the marketing strategy for Canadian customers, who may not understand the current approach that is being taken and displayed globally. From the knowledge that I have gained so far from this course, I understand that there is a process that needs to be considered when marketing products or a business. The main three steps that stand out to me when I read the case study were segmentation, positioning, and targeting.
Such as labour force, taxes, who have laws in place to protect workers. c. If the US government required flat panel TVs to be manufactured in the US this would mean that the costs would be passed down to consumers and they would have to pay a lot more. This would be a bad thing because consumers would then seek to purchase TVs from online sources and have them shipped in order to save money. When the Canadian dollar was stronger and cars were very expensive in Canada, consumers were travelling to the US by plane and purchasing cars in the US and driving them back. d. The example of Vizio tells us about the future production of production within every manufacturing segment.
Combining under one political structure would solve many of the problems and instabilities that they were faced. Corn Laws gave Canadian farmers a market in Britain, which was not available to their American counterparts. Exports were just as valuable to Britain as to Canada. However, when the Corn Laws were repealed by Britain in 1846, the Canadian farmers were now placed in competition with the Americans and other countries for the British markets. This increased stress for the farmers as their main source of income and survival drastically decreased.
And so Xerox was considering introduction of “green" line of copying machine. The internal and external factors influencing the decision were: 1) Customer: There was insufficient data on customer acceptance on recycled parts. The only customer information available to Xerox was that of some focus groups in Canada. Can Canadian information be transferable to European market? 2) Communication Strategy: The question was whether or not unifies the positioning of Xerox and how to communicate this internally in the company and externally in the market.
