But I do not want the private sector and government brought together...

Mayor Katz said: "In 2005, Kansas City, Missouri Mayor Kay Barnes and her business community went shopping for a city to build a unique cross border economic partnership. In this partnership, cities – not states, or regions, or countries – would promote their partnership and shared economic opportunities. Cities in Canada, the United States, and Mexico would become part of a true trade corridor, complete with mid-continent customs clearing, and plans to increase wholesale trade – the trade our city was built on. Which Canadian partner did she chose? - Winnipeg. Mayor Barnes chose us as a partner because her team found a confident voice at the other end of the phone – namely Destination Winnipeg. I want to take a moment to thank Destination Winnipeg chair, Bob Silver, President Stu Duncan, and their entire team, for being a superb marketing arm for the economic development in our city. Their team understands how to bring the private sector and government together."

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
