CRITICS SAY THE PROVINCE SHOULD INTRODUCE LEGISLATION TO CRACK DOWN ON MISLEADING CONTRACTS. HUNDREDS OF SMALL BUSINESSES IN B.C. HAVE BEEN SUED FOR TRYING TO BREAK TIES WITH WASTE DISPOSAL COMPANIES.>>IN PARTICULAR CASES, THOUGH, WHERE THE TERMS OF TERMS, OR RENEWAL, ARE VERY ONUS, WHERE YOU HAVE A SLIP OPPORTUNITY TO CHANGE YOUR SERVICE BEFORE YOU’RE LOCKED IN FOR ANOTHER FIVE YEARS, IT NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT CLOSELY IN TERMS OF STANDARD TERMS AND CONDITIONS BEING UTILIZED. BECAUSE ON THEIR FACE THEY SEEM VERY UNFAIR TO THE END CONSUMER.>>THE MINISTRY OF JOBS, TRADE AND TECHNOLOGY SAYS ALTHOUGH THE GOVERNMENT UNDERSTANDS THE FRUSTRATIONS THERE ARE ALREADY RESOURCES AVAILABLE TOO PROVIDE SUPPORT.>>>TODAY MARKS THE COMPLETION OF A NEW CROSSWALK IN VANCOUVER, INTENDED TO CELEBRATE THE MUSQUEAM COMMUNITY AND ITS ART. THIS ORIGINAL DESIGN IS BY MUSQUEAM ARTIST ROBIN SPARROW. IT’S LOCATED ON THE CROSSWALK AT 69th AND GRANVILLE. BECAUSE OF ITS PROXIMITY TO THE MUSQUEAM ANCIENT VILLAGE AND CEMETERY.

UNFORTUNATELY ONE OF THE AREAS THAT NEEDS IT MOST RIGHT NOW IS NOT GETTING ANYTHING, SPECIFICALLY MAKING REFERENCE TO A NEW WILDFIRE THAT’S POPPED UP IN THE SOUTHERN OKANAGAN. THIS IS ABOUT 30 KILOMETRES SHY OF OSOYOOS TO THE WEST AND THIS ALBERTA AND THIS IS THE RICHTER FOUNTAIN FIRE. IT’S 60 HECTARES IN SIZE. THERE ARE 40 FIREFIGHTERS ON IT AT THE MOMENT. IT’S NOT POSING SIGNIFICANT THREAT TO TOWNS OR VINEYARDS IN THE REGION AND WE’RE EXPECTING IT WAS LIGHTNING CAUSED, THOUGH THAT INVESTIGATION IS ONGOING. KEEP IN MIND BECAUSE OF THIS IT’S STILL GOING TO BE DRY OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS SO I WOULD EXPECT THE RATING TO GO UP AND UP. HOWEVER, CLOSER TO HOME, TEMPERATURES OUTSIDE OF THE STUDIO IN GENERAL ARE VERY COMFORTABLE, RIGHT AROUND 20°, AND WARMER, IN FACT, QUITE A LOT WARMER, INTO THE FRASER VALLEY, AROUND 27°, IF TUCK BELIEVE IT. OVERALL OUR TEMPERATURE STORY FOR THE NEXT 12 HOURS IS GOING TO BE OUR MAIN WEATHER STORY. WE’LL GO DOWN TO AS LOW AS 16 INTO DOWNTOWN VANCOUVER, A LITTLE COOLER TOWARD BURNABY AND NEW WESTMINSTER. BUT BY TOMORROW, THIS IS ONE OF THOSE DAYS WHERE I THINK PEOPLE WILL BE MAYBE PERHAPS A LITTLE BIT UNCOMFORTABLE WITH THE TEMPERATURES. I KNOW EVERYONE HERE IS A LITTLE SENSITIVE. I ENJOY THE HEAT, PERSONALLY SO IF I SEE TEMPERATURES 26, 27 I’M NOT GOING TO BE COMPLAINING TOO MUCH. BUT FOR SOME PEOPLE, YOU KNOW, IT MIGHT BE ON THE UPPER END FOR THEM.>>AND THAT’S WHERE WE GO INTO THIS NEXT STORY, QUITE THE DEBATE IN OUR OFFICE OVER THIS, OVER PEOPLE BEING TOO HOT, PEOPLE BEING TOO COLD. ARE YOU ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE IN THE OFFICE WHO’S ALWAYS KIND OF FIDDLING WITH THE TEMPERATURE? WELL, OFFICE TEMPERATURE IS CAUSING WORKPLACE CONFLICT, LOWERING CONCENTRATION, AND WASTING ENERGY T THIS IS ALL ACCORDING TO A NEW B.C. HYDRO SURVEY.>>Brett: THAT WAS QUITE INTERESTING. THEY FUND WOMEN ARE TWICE AS LIKELY AS MEN TO FIND IT HARD TO CONCENTRATE. THEY’RE FOUR TIMES MORE LIKELY TO DESCRIBE THEIR OFFICE ENVIRONMENT AS BEING TOO COLE AND OF COURSE THE STUDY BACKS UP OTHER STUDIES THAT HAVE BEEN DONE THAT FOUND THAT OPPOSITES ARE SET TO SUIT MALE METABOLIC RATES WHICH, BY THE WAY, IS ABOUT 20° CELSIUS.>>Anita: B.C. HYDRO RECOMMENDS RAISING TEMPERATURES TO BETWEEN 23 AND 26° IN THE SUMMER FOR HAPPIER EMPLOYEES AND MORE ECONOMICAL ELECTRICITY BILLS.>>Brett: I AM GOING TO HAVE TO ARGUE. YOU COULD NOT FIT PITTING TWO PEOPLE ON OPPOSITE EXTREMES THAN US.>>PRETTY MUCH.>>I’M ALWAYS TOO HOT AND YOU’RE TOO COLD.>>I SEPTEMBER AN E-MAIL YESTERDAY BECAUSE I WASOO COLD.>>26° CELSIUS, THAT’S 79 FAHRENHEIT. THAT’S TOO HOT.>>SO I WAS TOLD THEY’VE NOW RAISED OUR TEMPERATURE IN THE OFFICE TO 23°, IT DOES NOT FEEL LIKE 23° IN HERE. IF IT’S 23 OUTSIDE YOU FEEL THE WARMTH.>>FAIR ENOUGH. SEE?
