Canada vs. Australia | International Friendly Match Preview
The idea of cultivating drugs in an old chocolate factory echoes the popular television show Breaking Bad, whose main character — New Mexico teacher Walter White — cooks methamphetamine to pay for cancer treatments with the help of a criminal who runs a chain of fast-food restaurants. Smiths Falls Mayor Dennis Staples said hes heard only two complaints about the project and the city council is totally supportive of it. Tweed will bring employment to the city of 9,000 people about 80 kilometers (50 miles) southwest of Ottawa, which lost 1,700 jobs in recent years — including those at the old Hershey plant. More Bearable The mayor has a personal connection to the issue. He said his brother used medical marijuana as he battled colon cancer . It made his last days on this earth much more bearable, Staples said. We no longer own the building, said Hershey spokesman Jeff Beckman in an email. We are no longer connected to the facility. The old factory had made products such as Chipits chocolate chips, Cherry Blossoms and chocolate bars. The location at 1 Hershey Drive has the advantage of being across the street from the local police station, said Linton, who also serves on the boards of engineering firm Clearford Industries Inc. (CLI) and environmental technology firm Thermal Energy International (TMG) , both headquartered in the Ottawa area. Linton is also Canadas representative on a World Bank water sanitation panel. Canadas plan for secure, large-scale sanctioned production may be emulated by other countries, he said. Master Grower This government made a good decision — they said we are going to make it such that this stuff isnt growing in 36,000 houses, but rather in a controlled structured way, he said. U.S.
Australia | International Friendly Match Preview 8 hours ago Tuesday, October 14, 3 pm ET Craven Cottage, London Streamed live on Sportsnet.ca Canada and Australia have two big things in common heading into their friendly on Tuesday at the home of Premier League club Fulham FC: Both teams are coming off a string of disappointing results, and both count Holger Osieck among their former managers. Osieck led Canada to an unexpected triumph in the 2000 CONCACAF Gold Cup, and was at the helm of Australia when they qualified for Brazil 2014 earlier this year. But the Socceroos have struggled mightily since then losing their last two games by identical 6-0 score lines leading to Osieck’s dismissal over the weekend, just eight months ahead of the World Cup. Even though their World Cup ticket is already booked, the Australians will no doubt be motivated for the clash with Canada, not just to wash away the taste of their recent humiliating defeats, but to show the team’s new manager whoever it may be that they’re worthy of inclusion in next summer’s tournament roster. View gallery . Canada, meanwhile, are in much the same boat in their second camp under Benito Floro; but, of course, without a World Cup berth to look ahead to. Les Rouges are in full-on transition mode as Floro searches for the mix of players that will lead the program forward. Floro, however, doesn’t expect that the turmoil around the Australian camp will change his team’s approach to Tuesday’s match. “For us, it doesn’t matter because we plan to play thinking of our system, our plan,” he told reporters in a conference call on Monday. That plan won’t include Atiba Hutchinson , who came into camp with a minor hamstring injury and has since returned to his club in Turkey. HISTORY Canada and Australia last met in 1993, when they contested the CONCACAF/OFC intercontinental playoff in World Cup qualifying. Canada won the first leg, played in Edmonton, by a score of 2-1. The second leg, played in Sydney, also ended 2-1.
