Canada’s Downey Hired To Run Lta

But as it turns out, they were just saving the black for the worst jersey they could possibly make. What is that? It looks like a cigarette carton. The red logo looks like it was sponsored by Petro-Canada. The black one? Dunhill Fine Cut . It doesn’t even look like a hockey jersey. It looks like long-sleeved t-shirt. This is a jersey the gold medal favourites will be wearing? They look like a budget team. Plus, considering the red and the white one only have the stripe on one sleeve, it seems reasonable to assume the black one will too, which means it’s going to look even stupider.

Japan paid an average price of $15.74 per million British thermal units for liquefied natural gas in July, according to data from LNG Japan Corp. That compares with an average of about $3.64 for U.S. natural gas futures traded in New York . Japan, the worlds biggest LNG buyer, imports almost all its energy. Canada is the worlds fifth largest producer of natural gas, the countrys Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver said this month. Largest Importer While there are many areas for increased growth in our trade and investment relationship, the one that came up most frequently is obviously energy, Harper said. We have special assets to offer there and obviously Japan is the largest single importer of energy products. Harper said the two sides have also made progress in free trade negotiations. Japan and Canada additionally agreed in principle on a treaty governing logistics support between the two countries armed forces, which will be effective anywhere in the world, Harpers office said in a press statement. Abe was scheduled to travel to New York late yesterday, where he was due to meet French President Francois Hollande. He will meet United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon later today. Exxon Mobil Corp., the worlds largest energy company by market value, asked Canada in June for permission to export 30 million metric tons of LNG a year from the nations westernmost province of British Columbia. Gas Pipelines Royal Dutch Shell (RDSA) Plc, Chevron Corp., BG Group Plc and Cnooc Ltd. are among the other international energy companies proposing or considering LNG export projects in western Canada, including pipelines across British Columbias mountains to link gas supplies in shale formations to Pacific Coast facilities.

Abe Says Japan, Canada Agree to Cooperate on Natural Gas

Despite being extremely well funded, mainly because of the profits handed down from Wimbledon, British tennis has little top-level talent outside Andy Murray, who this year became Britain’s first men’s singles winner at the All England Club since 1936. The 38th-ranked Laura Robson is the only Briton in the women’s top 50. ”The opportunity that Andy Murray is now a Wimbledon champion, two-time grand slam champion, is immense for tennis in Britain,” said Downey, who was formerly the regional president for Canada’s largest brewery, Molson Canada. ”Andy Murray’s biggest contribution to tennis in Britain is winning. That’s when you want to write about him, that’s when people want to follow him, that’s when kids are going to go out, pick up racquets and want to be Andy Murray. And I believe there’s a bevy of young talent that’s coming up in Great Britain that is going to follow Andy Murray to the podium.” Downey will take up his new role on Jan. 6 as the replacement for Roger Draper, who announced in March that he was stepping down. In 2012, the LTA invested $109 million but with little tangible reward. Murray, who has been brought through largely outside the LTA structure, is the only British man in the top 150 in the rankings. The LTA said that Canadian tennis enjoyed significant growth at the grassroots and elite level under Downey, with more than 1.2 million people playing tennis at least twice a month. ”This sport has far more importance in Britain than in Canada,” Downey said. ”The expectation will be higher of myself in this position.” LTA chairman David Gregson said Downey’s annual salary will be $480,000 less than half of what Draper was earning. ”We set out to recruit a CEO with true success in business, with exceptional leadership credentials and ideally with significant knowledge of tennis,” Gregson said.
