Former Canadian Cabinet Minister Paul Hellyer Lunch ‘n’ Learn.

, , ,

Join The Rostie Group Work Community in celebrating the Honourable Paul T. Hellyer, former Minister of National Defence. Mr. Hellyer is a Canadian engineer, politician, writer and commentator who has had a long, successful and varied career. He is the longest serving current member of the Privy Council of Canada. Mr. Hellyer is 93 years old and still a spirited member of Canadian politics and global issues.

 

In early September 2005, Hellyer made headlines by publicly announcing that he believed in the existence of UFOs. The first person of cabinet rank in the G8 group of countries to state unequivocally “UFOs are as real as the airplanes flying overhead.”

 

Former Canadian Cabinet Minister Paul Hellyer is still as active as ever and deeply engaged in a wide variety of world issues, arguably the most urgent of which is the world monetary and financial system. Mr. Hellyer’s most recent book “The Money Mafia” (2014) exposes perceived fault lines in our banking and financial systems and explains how unemployment could be cut in half in two years and worldwide prosperity restored. Mr. Hellyer has written many books throughout his career on the world and Canadian economics, extraterrestrial life, and Canadian life.

 

Paul Hellyer has been a part of the Rostie work community for over fifteen years. He is also one of Canada’s best known and most controversial politicians. We welcome you in meeting Paul Hellyer and participating in an engaging discussion on the many projects and achievements of Mr. Hellyer’s career. Come out to our friendly Lunch ‘n’ Learn featuring Paul Hellyer on Tuesday August 30th, 2016 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. Find out more about Mr. Hellyer’s fascinating and influential life and what his work means for our future.

UN International Day of Happiness!

, , , , , , , ,

It feels good to be happy right?

Why not share the happiness at WaterPark Place this Friday and join us for some fun activities and treats in the Mezzanine and Food Court!

hapiness day @Oxford

Happiness is what we all strive for – what the media, society and every self-help book and guru out there tells us to seek.

So how do we truly reach a state of happiness and stay there?

Without the down times in life, it would be hard to enjoy the up times.

It would be very odd if we all walked around like the Stepford wives, perpetually smiling…

International Day of Happiness celebrated on March 20th,  is not about superficial and materialistic happiness but rather it is about recognizing that ‘progress’ should be about increasing human happiness and wellbeing, not just growing the economy.

“In 2011, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which recognised happiness as a “fundamental human goal” and called for “a more inclusive, equitable and balanced approach to economic growth that promotes the happiness and well-being of all peoples”.

In 2012 the first ever UN conference on Happiness took place and the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which decreed that the International Day of Happiness would be observed every year on 20 March. It was celebrated for the first time in 2013″.

It comes as no surprise that the number one way people describe experiencing happiness is from giving and doing things for others.
