Dear Mrs. Quirke:

Enclosed is my term paper, which was a requirement for my Communications-English 1 course. I chose the topic Toronto Maple Leafs because I have been a fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs since I was a very young boy and wanted to share information with my classmates because they have such a great history.

In researching my paper, I was able to find great amount of information from the internet. I had no restrictions in the gathering of information, which was updated information, on this specific hockey team. A major section of this report that may interest you is about a former player, Doug Gilmore, who was captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs; and my favorite player to ever lace up the skates.

I certainly hope you enjoy reading this paper as I thoroughly enjoyed researching the information found in the contents of the report. If you have any questions or concerns, I may be contacted and day at 764-7560 or by email (

...When I first came to Toronto (which is the southernmost city in Canada) from Middle East I found it quite different than my home country. As it was an entirely new place for me, which had to resemblance to Middle East it was quite difficult for me to roam around in the city. However, soon I realized that although there are a number of sites that one could visit in the world, but Toronto is one of the fastest, busiest, and advanced multicultural cities of the world. Apart from being Canada’s capital city, Toronto is the largest and well populated city in Canada. It is the ideal city for tourists to visit as over here one could find various quality shopping sites. All around Toronto, there are a number of dissimilar shopping malls. In the Ontario area of the city the Square mall is the biggest mall in which one could find drug stores, departmental stores, hobbies and crafts, children’s fashion stores, banks, automotive services and numerous other things. Apart from the Eaton centre mall there are several other malls like Yorkdale Shopping Centre, Centerpoint Mall, Cedarbrae Mall etc. If one plans to visit any one mall out of those mentioned above then it would surely keep him/her engaged for the whole day in discovering different things in that mall. For Toronto the tourist attractions are the key preeminence, which keeps it rich and fast. As far as places are concerned, there are a number of places that you could visit like the water kingdom where tourists could enjoy......

...overpopulation. How do deer affect the long-term management of a forestland? Sugar lines if any would be affected and possibly the buckets may be torn down. The deer also would eat the natural wild life around and bugs that are keeping the pests away. 4. In the Shelburne Farms management plan, the section on Harvest Systems is quite specific about how trees will be harvested from the property. Why do you think this is the case? I think this is the case because each year you want to preserve your system and how the sugaring is produced the slightest change on the forest could change a whole lot more. And so that nothing can get destroyed with machinery and such. 5. How can maple sugaring be used as a tool to prevent forestlands from being developed for residential or commercial activities? Maple sugaring can be used as a tool to prevent forestlands from being destroyed by creating a product that is over demanded and supply us with an organic substance from the trees and the earth. 6. What are your thoughts about agricultural uses of private or public lands vs. residential or commercial development? How can the needs of human populations be balanced with the long-term health of the land? I believe we need to preserve lands for agricultural uses over residential and commercial uses. The human population is only going to grow and the land space is only going to get smaller if we cant find a way to slow down our species....

Maple Syurp

...MAPLE SYRUP When I think about maple syrup one of the first thoughts that comes to mind is a huge maple tree trunk with a metal buckets hanging on it. The age old tradition of “sugar bushing” (maple trees used to be referred to as sugar bushes) is a little foggy. It has been said that early settlers in the United States learned about sugar maples from Native Americans Indians. No one is exactly sure how it all began but it is rumored that an Indian Chief of a tribe threw a tomahawk at a tree and when sap ran out of the tree his wife used the liquid to boil venison. Another story holds that American Indians stumbled on sap running from a broken maple branch. Maple Sap typically runs out of maple trees on days when the temperature is around 40 degrees following a night when the temperature dropped below freezing. Farmers would drill holes into the trees to allow the sap to drain. Every day or two the farmers would empty the buckets into larger containers and haul the watery substance to a "sugar house". The sap is about 98% water and it takes about 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup. The sugar makers would boil off most of the water over a wood fire and what remained was sweet brown syrup. Other sugar makers would heat the sap down even more turning it into crystallized sugar. In the modern era the process has developed to the point that the sugar industry produced evaporators that were in essence giant frying pans with fire boxes built underneath. Most......

...Problem Statement In the case of Maple Leaf Hardware ltd, the evident problem arises from the owner of the company, Robert Patrick’s, request to increase his existing line of credit that he has with the Central Canadian Bank. With a goal of increasing the existing line of credit of $100,000 to $160,000, Stuart Foreman of the Bank has a big decision to make. With the company having an obvious inventory problem, the bank is cautious when looking at Maple Leaf’s financial statements as well as their current position.

Toronto Mayor

...“Toronto Mayor Airs Bloody Cloths” is an article written by Carolyn Cooper and published in the Jamaica Gleaner on January 26, 2014. In this article the author persuasively argues that we are not capitalizing on the rich cultural values of the Jamaican Patois. The author begins by highlighting the infamous Mayor of Toronto Rob Ford whose cursing of two Jamaica expletives have gone viral. Cooper continues that as a result of this a producer from the Canadian media contact her for her expertise in defining the syntax of the language used by Ford. Cooper concluded that a wide section of the international media is intrigue with the use of our language by Ford, yet promoters of tourism, the creative industries and the elite of the society fail to see the value of our culture. The author’s thesis statement is “we don’t appreciate the value of our language as cultural capital”. Cooper uses a combination of cause and effect and spatial patterns writings in his attempt to persuade tourism promoters, the creative industries and the elite in the society, who are his intended audience. He highlighted that the cause of poverty is a lack of economic development. The description of the “home” of the man that he helped contains vivid imagery. While the author’s aim is to persuade he also intends to discredit this lady who has criticized him. He is angry at this lady. He doesn’t think she has the capacity to criticize him on economic issues. He uses simply diction whenever he is......

Another food safety issue in developed country 1. THE CONTAMINATION Born and raised in Asia, I’m not surprised to hear story that chemical pesticide is overused by farmers, that even multinational company such as Nestle withdrew billion of rupees worth of Maggie instant noodles over unsafe level of lead or that baby products were adulterated with melamine which is known to cause renal and kidney stones. Even though in some scandals, these involved companies proclaimed the incident was unintentional, I do believe those company operated to maximize profit over business ethics that they established with their consumers by saving cost of quality assurance before distributing products to market. However, as a third world citizen, I accept these scandals are part of life, part of loose regulation of developing country. That’s why I was very surprise to acknowledge of 2008 Canada listeriosis outbreak linked to contaminated products from Maple Leaf Food plants in Toronto, Ontario.

Maple Leaf Shoes Ltd

...Lance, the Consultant, tasked with looking into the role played by the Human Resource Management in Maple Leaf shoes Limited employed a plan that had its strengths and weaknesses. First, Lance takes an active step in attempting to interview the organization's senior managers to have an insight on their understanding of the company. He, however, does not succeed to interview all the directors. Lance uses questions that have a positive tone thus allowing the managers to express themselves, for instance, "What are the major challenges facing Maple Leaf Shoes in the next five years?" (Das, 2002, p. 80). Additionally, Lance appears to work under the conviction that meeting of the client's expectations marks the effectiveness of the Human Resource Department. Lance opts to use personal interviews whose primary goal is to gather relevant and useful information in understanding the role of the human resource department. He, however, fails to get more useful information as he uses a short question checklist that does not assist in understanding the function of human resource. It is also hard to make a conclusion on the issues he uses as he adopts a free response format that does not allow for comparison on the answers received. Lance also fails to meet with all the managers thereby making his meeting with Clark, the firm's president, less important given that most of the interviews faced several disturbances like receiving phone calls. Additionally, he is not yet well versed with......

Maple Retreat

...The 3 key points you would take into account about the Maple company/business in order to define the “best possible candidate” are: 1. High-profile customers: Maple’s clients are high-income people that expect “a high level of professionalism from the staff”, and the course is expected to be in an “impeccable condition”. We believe that the first statement is more important for the job, as professional staff can be taught to have the course in an impeccable condition. Therefore, candidates have to be friendly to customers, good looking, have good manners and good attitude to learn. 2. Physical requirement and teamwork: Candidates have to be physically prepared for the job, and have to be able to start working at 5:30 am with a smile on their face, for which we need an active and fit person. Additionally, the job characteristics require team players. 3. Poor pay and seasonality: The job has a low pay in addition to being offered for only 8 months per year. Additionally, candidates must be happy with their positions in order to be nice to clients. This probably involves that the person you are looking for is someone who had an even worse job. The key aspect in choosing someone would be that the person does not have an attractive alternative job in terms of salary or job scope. Even if this candidate does not have optimal skills, we can train him and bring him to speed. Additionally, someone who, for example, is used to cleaning bathrooms, could be very happy working in a......
