  • I thoroughly enjoyed my experience in the Paralegal Program with Canadian Business College. I found the instructors from the Toronto Campus to be professional and knowledgeable in their area of practice and the administration was a pleasure to work with. At the collegiate level, your results are established based on the effort you put in while learning a new field. I’m delighted to be an honours graduate from this established institution!

  • Hello, I would like to start by stating that my experience with my classmates was exceptional.
    2 out of the 5 teachers were excellent that I had. They were really clear and helpful.
    The others were scatterbrained and didn’t have a clue as to what they were doing. Really unprofessional.
    Support staff was understaffed and in need of more training (paralegal manager is a total joke).
    The quality of the academic portion was not good. However, It was my first time in post-secondary, so I cannot compare.
    I attended Canadian business college due to the convenience of location.
    Out of my graduating class, none of them are in the field we went to school for.
    CBC has a negative name with most companies and firms I have found.
    Also, other colleges will not accept their transcripts or your diploma if want to further your education.

  • I went to this school last year and graduated recently. Some of the teachers are good, but others screw you over, and then lie to the program coordinator, saying that you’re lazy and didn’t do any of the work. One teacher in particular seemingly made a hobby out of singling out students and giving them failing grades, even though they didn’t deserve to fail.
    They also give you absolutely no help, for finding a placement Barbra who is the program director is Canadian business college graduate with ZERO experience and knowledge. I was never able to find a placement, and I still haven’t received my diploma, even though I passed all of the required classes, because the placement is required for graduation as well. So, good luck in finding a placement. Personally, I think that if they’re going to make it a requirement for graduation, they should give you at least a little bit of help, like giving you a list of employers you can send your resume to, but they don’t even do that. You’re completely on your own.
    The educational director (Nina) at the school doesn’t give a damn about your problems, because they already have your money, and that’s all they care about.
    In Short:
    Shittiest College you could ever go to….
    – Horrible professors/ professionals except for a select few
    – Faculty is run by unhelpful individuals who don’t know what they are doing
    If you are planning to go to this school, save yourself the trouble, save your money and go to other colleges….

  • If you are considering going to this location, I wouldn’t.. There is just so much I could say. The instructors are so unorganized and for the amount of tuition you pay they don’t even have the proper tools to teach you. The programs are so outdated. You are told all this awesome stuff before you start, but once they have your money all that goes to crap. I don’t feel like the money I put into going to this school was worth the education I got. I could have learned more from Wikipedia.

  • Well what can i say they do not care about students at all they just want you money and that is the bottom line. The teachers are usually first time teachers but this is ok because it falls under the private colleges rules. The college does not do one thing extra or one thing at all to help the students. All you have to do is walk though the college and speak to the students and ask them what they think and if they feel they are getting there monies worth and if you find one i will be very impressed. They have so many things against them look under cannii.ca and the government web site for private colleges they have not even bothered to fix what the superintendent has asked them because they don not care about quality nor do they have an honour what so ever. They steal money from students and give nothing in return. They don not even have proper information to hand out it is all photocopied and they say its in the printers they have been saying that for years i am told. If i could do it all over again i would go to a government college because there they have standards the teachers much know how to teach and have experience not only in there field but in the subject they are teaching. Government colleges are accountable for what they teach and the quality of the school and the courses private schools do not and this school i am very surprised how they have been allowed to get away with what they have been for so many years. Do your self a favour and go to a government college like seneca or humber you will learn much more and they actually care. if this college gets 1 good review i know its the college writing it because many of the teachers i have had don not even think its good its sub level.

  • School has been sued many times. Example is Matoni v. C.B.S. Interactive Multimedia Inc. (Canadian Business College). You can find this at a site called canlii. Look up other cases against school as well. Many many more.

    The Superintendent has ordered the Canadian Business School Inc. operating as Canadian Business College (CBC) to comply with the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005 (Act) and Regulations. The violations of the Act and regulations are that CBC: is advertising and offering unapproved vocational programs for a fee contrary to s.8(1), s.11(2) of the Act, and granting credentials for unapproved vocational programs contrary to s. 10 of the Act; has made substantial changes to vocational programs without further approval of the Superintendent contrary to s.23(6) of the Act; has employed persons to provide instruction in vocational programs who do not meet the qualifications set out in s.41 of O.Reg. 415/06; has employed persons as instructors in a vocational program without having them complete an instructor qualification data form and without keeping record of said form at the campus contrary to s.42(1) and (2) of O.Reg. 415/06; has included false and/or misleading statements in advertising material for the purpose of inducing a student or prospective student to enrol in a program contrary to s.18(1) of O.Reg. 415/06; has not established a compliant procedure to resolve student complaints contrary to s.31(1) of the Act and s.36(1) of O.Reg. 415/06; has not maintained a record of every complaint at the campus where the complaint originated for a period of at least three years from the date of the decision relating to the complaint contrary to s.36(1)(h) of O.Reg. 415/06; has not given the Superintendent written notice of a change in the person responsible for the administration of a campus within 5 days of the change occurring contrary to s.48(1)1 of O.Reg. 415/06; has not included the practicum location in the student contract contrary to s. 20(1)15 of O.Reg. 415/06; and could not produce testimonial consent forms for testimonials appearing in advertising material contrary to s.17(1) 4 of O.Reg. 415/06.

  • Results from Libya’s first elections since the overthrow of Col Gaddafi have shown gains for an alliance of parties seen as broadly secular.

    The National Forces Alliance, led by ex-interim Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril, has won 39 out of 80 seats reserved for political parties.

    The Muslim Brotherhood’s party has gained 17.

    The 200-member General National Assembly will also include dozens of independent candidates.

    The overall orientation that the assembly will have is so far unclear.

    What remains to be seen is who, if anyone, will lead the assembly by majority, the BBC’s Rana Jawad in Tripoli reports.

    That will depend on the allegiances – largely unknown – of 120 independent candidates, she adds.

    While congratulating other parties, the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Justice and Construction Party said it had made gains in seats reserved for independent members.

    They may now be banking on a shift in their favour from the non-party lists, our correspondent adds.

    Analysis

    Rana Jawad

    BBC News, Tripoli

    ——————————————————————————–
    It was, for many, the act of voting that mattered most. Nevertheless, this landslide victory for the centrist National Forces Alliance in the party-list was largely expected since the preliminary results started trickling out over the past week.

    Talking to Libyans, you find that many of the youth – who make up the majority of eligible voters – cast their ballots against anyone running on a religious platform. They opted for policy-makers rather than ideologies. You often also hear about lessons being drawn from election results in Tunisia and Egypt, where it was viewed that Islamists hijacked the Arab Spring.

    The recent sporadic attacks against foreign missions in Libya, believed to be carried out by some hardline Islamists, also seemed to spook people here and probably played some role in swaying the vote.
    The current interim Prime Minister Abdurrahim al-Keib said the announcement of the results was “a time of celebration”.

    “Everybody in Libya is happy. And we are thankful to those partners and friends who have helped us to get to this point,” Mr Keib said.

    There will now be a two-week window for any appeals against the tally.

    More than 100 parties competed in the poll, many of them formed only in recent months.

    The assembly will have legislative powers, though it is unclear what role it will play in drawing up the country’s new constitution. The assembly is expected to be in place for at least a year.

    It will choose the first elected government since Col Muammar Gaddafi came to power in 1969. He was ousted in August 2011 and killed two months later.

    The last fully free parliamentary election was held soon after independence in 1952. The last national vote was held in 1965, when no political parties were allowed.

    EU election observers said the voting process on 7 July was largely “peaceful and smooth”, although technical delays and violence disrupted polling in several locations.

    One person was killed in a shooting near a polling station in Ajdabiya.

    The election commission put turnout at 62% of registered voters.

    In an interview with the BBC last week, Mr Jibril called on parties to form a coalition government, something which rival politicians tentatively welcomed.

    North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has been given the title of marshal, state media announced.

    The title – the top functioning military rank – was held by both his late father and grandfather, North Korean founding father Kim Il Sung.

    In the latest move in a high-level military reshuffle, Hyon Yong-chol was named as army chief.

    The previously little-known general came to sudden prominence on Monday after his predecessor was removed.

    Ri Yong-ho’s demotion was attributed to illness, but has been widely interpreted by analysts as a purge aimed at stamping the authority of the new leader on North Korea’s powerful army.

    Kim Jong-il died in December 2011 and was posthumously promoted to generalissimo – formally the country’s most senior rank – in February, when the country marked what would have been his 70th birthday.

    Meteoric

    “A decision was made to award the title of Marshal of the DPRK [North Korea] to Kim Jong-un, supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army,” the KCNA statement said.

    The decision was jointly made by the Central Committee and the Central Military Commission of the Workers’ Party of Korea, the National Defence Commission of the DPRK (North Korea) and the Presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly of the DPRK, the statement said.

    Hyon Yong-chol replaces the enormously powerful Ri Yong-ho At a military meeting in Pyongyang following the announcement, Mr Hyon was introduced as “chief of the general staff of the Korean People’s Army”.

    His assumption of that title has not been formally announced but it had been widely anticipated by observers after he took the position of vice-marshal from Mr Ri.

    Nonetheless, the promotion remains a meteoric rise for the previously little known Mr Hyon, who was made a general in 2010, analysts say.

    It appears to signal a dramatic attempt by Kim Jong-un to assert control over an army whose influence burgeoned under the “military first” policy adopted by his father.

    The army not only plays a leading role in the political life of the country but also in economic decision-making.

    Observers have also highlighted a “generational shake-up” taking place in the military, with older leaders being replaced by figures several years younger.

    Mr Hyon’s age is not known, but he is thought to be about a decade younger than Ri Yong-ho, 69.

    Power ‘reconstitution’
    Ri Yong-ho was extremely powerful: as well as army chief he was vice-chairman of the powerful Central Military Commission and held top posts in the ruling Workers’ Party.

    His removal took many North Korea observers by surprise, with widespread scepticism at the official explanation.

    North Korea: The inner circle?
    Very little is known about the key figures close to Kim Jong-un but a handful of names stand out
    Kim Kyong-hui, Kim Jong-il’s sister, and her husband Jang Song-thaek, both of whom hold multiple titles
    Choe Ryong-hae, who holds top military and party titles
    Choe Yong-rim, an elder statesman frequently seen in public
    Hyon Yong-chol, the new army chief after Ri Yong-ho was removed
    He had been seen as a key figure in the recent transition of power to the young leader.

    ”What we are seeing is a reconstitution of the North Korea leadership from the old guard who were loyal to Kim’s father to a new guard,” Jasper Kim of the Asia Pacific Global Research Group told the BBC.

    In a rare move, state media released a statement on Wednesday morning saying an important announcement was due shortly before the news of Kim Jong-un’s appointment.

    This, analysts say, could be another signal that the young leader, believed to be in his late 20s, is painting a slightly different image for himself from that of his father.

    Kim Jong-un is a ”young person raised in the era of the internet” and was educated abroad in Switzerland, Jasper Kim pointed out.

    He has recently been photographed with a ”mystery woman”, leading to speculation over her identity. Pyongyang has not released any details about her, and it is not known if Mr Kim is married.

    Mr Kim and those around him are being keenly watched for the direction in which they will take the communist state.

    North Korea – which remains technically at war with South Korea – conducted nuclear tests in 2006 and 2009, since when international talks on ending its nuclear ambitions have been stalled.

    It also launched a rocket in April, saying it wanted to put a satellite into orbit. The US and North Korea’s neighbours said the launch – which failed – was a long-range missile test that violated UN resolutions.

    Using the values that you input into the calculator, it works out your BMI as well as where you are in relation to the rest of the population in your country and the world for your gender and age.

    DW As with all large data sets, there is a margin of error in this calculation, something statisticians call “standard deviation”. This is indicated on the graph by the faint band either side of your indicated BMI measure.

    * Your range is a reference to the “standard deviation from the mean”, in other words your result is likely to vary within these boundaries.

    who were recently ordered out of their Bay St. Lawrence Road home under the province’s Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods Act, were alleged to have been using and selling illegal drugs, and playing host to a group dubbed “Society’s Rejects.”

    Now, try to square that image with one painted by Dina Waik and Debb Bertazzon of Toronto in a letter to the editor published on Sept. 4, 2010. The two were trapped in Meat Cove after a torrential rain storm on Aug. 22, 2010 washed out that community’s roads and bridges.

    “Allow us to thank the wonderful residents of Meat Cove who helped us in every way and opened their homes to us when we were in need,” ran part of the letter, which depicted how the two tourists were fed, lodged and entertained free of charge.

    “We were absolutely inspired by their thoughtfulness, consideration and insistence that our needs be put before their own, despite what they had already lost.”

    It’s difficult to square the two images, because one is of a community at its worst due to a few dealing with chronic adversity and the other is of a community at its best in the face of acute adversity.

    At a preliminary inquiry into allegations of historical sexual assaults on N.S. by her uncle, M–l.S., and her cousin, M–d.S., N.S. requested permission to testify while wearing her niqab. She based her request on her Muslim religious beliefs. In conformity with those beliefs, N.S. wears a hijab – a full body dress – and a niqab – a veil which covers her entire face except for her eyes – when she is in public or in the presence of males who are not “direct” members of her family. The stricture applies in the presence of M–d.S. As of the date of the appellate proceedings, she had been wearing the niqab and hijab for approximately five years. M–d.S. and the Crown objected.

    The preliminary inquiry judge ordered that she remove her niqab before testifying in the preliminary inquiry. On a motion for extraordinary remedies, the Superior Court judge granted an application for certiorari quashing the order requiring N.S. to remove her veil during testimony, but denied an application for mandamus allowing N.S. to wear her veil while testifying. The Court of Appeal allowed the appeal in part. It affirmed the Superior Court’s order quashing the preliminary inquiry judge’s order and remitted the matter to the preliminary inquiry judge for a decision in accordance with its reasons. A cross-appeal was dismissed.

  • The grieving mother of Chinese university student Jun Lin says her son viewed Canada as a place that was welcoming and safe for immigrants, but his brutal killing and dismemberment have left her with a starkly different view of the country.

    “We still believe that most people here are very kind, but this heinous crime happened in Canada. It’s made me reconsider what kind of place this is,” Zhigui Du told the CBC’s Mark Kelley in an interview set to air on The National at 9 p.m. ET Monday.

    Lin’s parents have been treated with “kindness” by the federal government, she said, and people here have shown the couple sympathy and support since they arrived in Montreal following their son’s grisly slaying in late May.

    But his death, the brutal nature of which garnered headlines around the world, has shattered the idealistic view of Canada that Du’s 33-year-old son had impressed on her.

    Before moving to Montreal from Beijing to study in a computer engineering program at Concordia University, Lin had done extensive research online about Canada.
    Jun Lin is shown in this undated photo from his personal Facebook page under the name of Patrick Lin. (Canadian Press)
    His mother said he had the impression that it was “a peaceful place with great respect for multiculturalism,” and that there was no reason to worry about his safety.

    Luka Rocco Magnotta, a small-time adult-film actor originally from the Toronto area who had cultivated a strange assortment of personae online, has pleaded not guilty in the case. He has been charged with five criminal offences including first-degree murder, harassing politicians and posting obscene material to the web.

    Today, Du says, when she walks down the street sometimes she feels like “everyone looks like Magnotta. I live with so much fear.”

    Anxiously awaiting trial

    Magnotta, 29, was arrested in Berlin on June 4 following an international manhunt, and was extradited to Canada on board a military aircraft two weeks later. He made a brief court appearance in Montreal on June 21 where he requested a trial by judge and jury.

    Lin’s parents flew to Montreal last month to collect their son’s remains and mourn his death, holding a private memorial service that drew between 50 and 100 friends and family.

    ‘What a disaster and huge pain for our family.’—Zhigui Du, Jun Lin’s mother

    In an emotional two-hour-long interview, the couple spoke of their struggle to come to terms with Jun Lin’s killing and their anxiety over the court case, which is still months away. Pretrial motions will begin in March 2013.

    Asked whether the Canadian legal system will be able to deliver justice in his son’s death, Jun Lin’s father, Diran Lin, said, replied, “I hope so … I can only wish for it.”

    Looking back on son’s life

    Jun Lin was born in the city of Wuhan, in central China. His mother said the family lived in a remote area, “poor with material things, but we were a happy family.”
    The parents of Jun Lin, Zhigui Du, left, and Diran Lin, speak to CBC News about the loss of their son, who was murdered in Montreal in May. (CBC)
    To get around, the three of them would pile on a single bicycle, Jun Lin on the front, Du on the back, his father in the middle pedalling them along “bumpy village roads.”

    Going to Canada was Lin’s dream, his mother said, but after arriving in Montreal he stayed in touch with his family almost every day.

    They lost contact with him on the evening of May 24, and his mother then got a phone call from one of her son’s classmates in Montreal saying that his friends also had not heard from him.

    “When I heard that, my heart almost stopped beating,” Du said. “I couldn’t breathe.”

    She eventually learned of Jun Lin’s death from a TV news report, and said she fainted.

    Coping with grief

    Jun Lin’s death has put a strain on the couple, and the suggestion that his slaying has allegedly been posted online has only heightened their anguish.

    “What a disaster and huge pain for our family,” Du said, sobbing.

    “The most unbearable pain for me is that the video got posted on the internet. People watched it over and over. It’s like my son is being murdered again and again.”

    Diran Lin said he doesn’t believe his son had a relationship with Magnotta, although his apartment was the site of Jun Lin’s murder.

    “I’m confident to assure you on that,” he said, adding that testimony at trial may clarify whether the two men knew one another.

    While they wait for the trial to begin, Jun Lin’s parents are also trying to decide where to lay their son’s remains to rest.

    They had planned to have the burial in Montreal because, his mother said, he loved it so much there.

    But the couple is facing mounting pressure from family to lay his remains to rest in the country where he was born and raised.

    “We Chinese have an old saying: ‘Fallen leaves must go back to the root of the tree,'” Du said. “We’re caught in the middle and really don’t know what to do.”

    “A civil servant who does not take decisions might always be safe, but at the end of the day he or she would have contributed nothing to our society and to our country,” the Prime Minister said.

    I plead that as a result of the Defendants’ lack of conscience, continuous deceit to cover up their wrongdoing, and ruthless conduct, I lost my jobs; my once perfect health record destroyed causing stigmatism and further similar abuses, and refusal of future insurance benefits due to injury to health (depression); lost of skill utilization for future advancements; lost of job references; required to take medication in order to work to reduce condition caused by additional mobbing behaviour to mitigate further injury into reactive depression and suicide ideation; a good standard of living and loss of reputation of my good name.

    No witch hunting in name of fighting corruption: PM assures bureaucrats Fighting the charge of policy paralysis in the government, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today asked civil servants to show “boldness” in decision making, assuring them there will be “no witch hunting” in the name of fighting corruption.

    Addressing them on the Civil Services Day here, Singh asked the bureaucrats to fight the tendency of not taking decisions because of the fear that things might go wrong and they might be penalised for that.

    “It should be our endeavour that there is no witch hunting in the name of fighting corruption. It is our government’s commitment to put in place a system and create an environment in which our civil servants are encouraged to be decisive, and no one is harassed for bonafide mistakes of errors of judgement,” the Prime Minister said.

    Singh, however, also noted there is a growing perception, right or wrong, that the moral fibre of civil servants and public servants in general is not as as strong as it used to some decades back and that the civil servants are now more likely to succumb to extraneous pressures in their work.

    “These perceptions might be exaggerated but I do think that there is a grain of truth in them,” he said.

    While maintaining that the decisions that civil servants take must be fair and objective in nature, he made it clear that the government stands committed to protecting honest and well meaning civil servants who might have made genuine errors in their work.

    “…We cannot have a bureaucracy which is hundred percent risk averse. In fact we should encourage boldness in decision making, provided that the decisions are well considered and as per the law of the land.
    Singh also chose the occasion to stress that the Centre has made “substantial progress” in the last one year towards strengthening the legislative framework and revamping the country’s administrative practices to enable it to fight the menace of corruption in public life better.

    Maintaining there is a need to be honest in admitting our failures and our deficiencies, the Prime Minister said that the decisions that the civil servants take must be fair and objective in nature, based on sound evidence and deep analysis and designed to serve the best interests of the country.

    “Their judgement and advice should not be affected by the nature and colour of the political leadership. If this does not happen, the impartiality and fairness of the decision making processes in public administration would get compromised and the quality of our output would be sub-optimal… this is a vigil that the civil servants must maintain constantly,” he said.

    Noting that there is a growing perception in the public that the attributes of objectivity in work have been diluted, Singh said he leaves it to the civil servants to ponder to what extent this perception is true and what they can collectively do to remove it from the public mind.

    Congratulating the award winning civil servants on the occasion, he also said that several civil servants in the country have been shining examples of probity and integrity, working selflessly for the public good.

  • When Alan Ladd starred in the 1957 film Boy on a Dolphin, Sophia Loren had to walk in a trench alongside him so filmgoers couldn’t tell she was taller than him. Loren was 5ft 8in of Italian voluptuousness, while Ladd was 5ft 5in tall and, in his own words, a man with “the face of an ageing choirboy and the build of an undernourished featherweight”. The following year, when screen hardman Ladd starred in The Deep Six, he stood on boxes so as not to appear smaller than his co-stars.

    More than half a century on, another man who is 5ft 5in tall is similarly doing his damnedest to conceal the shortness of his stature. Earlier this week, French president Nicolas Sarkozy gave a televised speech at the Faurecia motor technology plant near Caen in Normandy. He stood before the cameras flanked by white-coated workers and suited executives, very few of whom were taller than him. A journalist reportedly asked one of them later: “Is it true you were all picked to appear alongside the president because of your height – because you shouldn’t be taller than the president?” The worker answered: “Exactly that.” And French TV news showed 20 relatively small Faurecia workers from a total workforce of 1,400 being bussed to the press conference from other parts of the site.

    Sarkozy’s aides were keen to ensure no repeat of the D-day debacle in June when, just along the Normandy coast in Colleville-sur-Mer, Sarkozy had stood next to 6ft 1in Barack Obama and 5ft 11in Gordon Brown during the 65th anniversary commemoration ceremony. French virility had been symbolically castrated by an Anglo-American height conspiracy.

    But, you might well be asking, why did Sarko bother to try to conceal the truth about his height? Surely the French president or his aides must realise that any attempts to conceal his relative shortness will make him look even more ridiculous than – with all due respect – he does already? Surely someone should tell him it is madness to stand on a little box in front of a lectern to give a speech (as he did in Colleville-sur-Mer), since any snapper worth their salt was going to photograph him not from the front but from the side – thus making his pathetic ruse globally apparent?

    What is it about short guys that makes them go to such great lengths (sorry) to conceal what they really are? It’s an old story. Back in the day, Humphrey Bogart (5ft 8in) would stand one step higher than his leading ladies (Lauren Bacall, 5ft 8in, Katharine Hepburn, 5ft 7in) when they were snapped coming down the steps from a plane, recalls Ralph Keyes in his book about the hilarities of human extension, The Height of Your Life. Last year, Tom Cruise (5ft 7in) reprised Bogey’s technique when he appeared outside a New York theatre, standing not one but three steps above his wife Katie Holmes (5ft 9in).

    Why did it have to be three steps? Because Holmes (selfishly, in my view) had chosen to go out that evening wearing four-inch patent black Christian Louboutin heels, which clearly made the chances of a disastrous night out on the town, PR-wise, catastrophically likely. But of course the three-step ploy didn’t work: the Daily Mail, for instance, ran with the headline, “Tiny Tom finds a way to rise above his shortcomings.”

    Cruise, Bogey, Sly (of whom more later): small male actors, at least, are, like Gloria Swanson in Sunset Boulevard, telling themselves and us that they are not small. “I am big!” hissed Swanson. “It’s the pictures that got small.” The intolerable truth that none of the foregoing allow themselves to admit is they’re not as big as they want to be. Why do they delude themselves and attempt to con us? “We associate size with power,” says Keyes. Consider, for example, the world’s leading Hobbit interpreter, Elijah Wood. He was supposed to be about 4ft 2in tall in the Lord of the Rings films. In real life, though, Wood is 5ft 6in, while his co-star Liv Tyler is apparently 5ft 10in. Yet on the cover of Entertainment Weekly to publicise the Tolkein trilogy, he appeared towering over her. Male actors have a problem with being seen to be shorter than women.

    But there is a very good reason for that. According to Dutch psychologist Professor Abraham Buunk of the University of Groningen, tall men have greater success with the opposite sex. So pretending to be tall may confer a sexual and thereby evolutionary advantage. Larger males are more likely to win fights, are more dominant, have clout with the Ivy’s maitre d’, make eye contact with bar staff at crucial moments, and, crucially, are more likely to reproduce. True, that hasn’t been my life story, even though I would be 6ft 1in if I stood up straight, but then there’s always someone who ruins the theory. For male actors, for whom being desirable to women is obligatory to a successful career, size is everything.

    Buunk’s researchers questioned 100 men and 100 women in relationships about their feelings of jealousy and how interested they believed their partners to be in other members of the opposite sex. They found taller men were less jealous. Apparently, 5ft 4in men scored an average of 3.75 out of six on a jealousy scale, with the men around 6ft 6in getting just 2.25. The results among women were more complex, with those of around average height (5ft 6in) scoring lowest for jealously, at around three out of six.

    But is there such a thing as short-woman syndrome? The shortest women in Buunk’s study, who measured around 5ft, scored five on the scale, while the tallest, at 6ft, got an average of four. So is there a tall-woman syndrome too, whereby women over 6ft tall aggressively overcompensate because they’re livid about Buunk’s thesis, whereby not only tall men, but also medium-height women, have greater success with the opposite sex? Is that why the explosive grunt of top tennis player Lindsay Davenport, who is 6ft 2 in, has been recorded at an ear-splitting 88 decibels? You know what? Probably not.

    Moving on. There is something called the Napoleon complex, which was identified by the psychoanalyst Alfred Adler, by means of which small men are supposed to overcompensate for their height by aggressiveness. Lou Reed, 5ft 5in of handshake-crushing anger (just ask anyone who has ever interviewed him), is the present-day personification of this complex. But this theory is dubious: if, over time, short men are known to overcompensate for their smallness by being aggressive, surely taller men, annoyed with being duffed up by short, inadequate blokes, will themselves turn aggressive so they don’t get picked on so much, thus confounding the theory. Also, the theory is all but sunk by counter-examples: true, Stalin was 5ft 4in, and Hitler and Mussolini were small men filled to the brim with pure evil, but it is folly to associate badness with titchiness. Khrushchev and Gandhi were both 5ft 3in and eternally occupy very different positions on the aggressiveness scale. And while Alexander Pope undeniably wrote some very biting verses, it would be a mistake to ascribe this to the fact that he did so because he was chippy about being only 4ft 6in.

    Indeed, the Napoleon complex received short shrift (so very sorry) from the University of Central Lancaster, where researchers a couple of years ago asked men of different heights to duel with wooden sticks in a so-called Chopstick Game. One man would deliberately provoke the other by rapping them across the knuckles. Heart monitors revealed taller men lost their temper more quickly and hit back. “The results were consistent with the view that small-man syndrome is a myth,” says psychologist Dr Mike Eslea. “When people see a short man being aggressive, they are likely to think it is due to his size simply because that attribute is obvious and grabs their attention.”

    But none of this explains why President Sarkozy does not embrace his manifest smallness in the way that other successful small men do (I’m thinking of Al Pacino’s performance in elevator shoes in the Devil’s Advocate – pure cinematic jambon). Indeed, if anyone would want to revive the Napoleon complex in order to stress parallels with the greatest and most successful leader in French history, then surely it would be Sarkozy. Better, surely, for him to kick away his elevator shoes and stand in stocking feet surrounded by six foot tall French rugby players for his next presidential press conference, and tell the world: “All right. Laugh it up. But you know, who else was small? Napoleon Bonaparte, the terror of Europe. Not so funny now, am I?”

    Instead, Sarkozy may well be more impressed by the findings of psychologist John Gillis, who, in his 1984 book Too Small, Too Tall, revealed that in 21 American presidential elections from 1904 to 1984, the taller candidate won 80% of the time. But did the taller candidates win because they are taller? It is by no means certain. Indeed, the Longer Name Hypothesis points out that of the 22 presidential elections between 1876 and 1960, the candidate with more letters in his last name won the popular vote 20 times. So maybe Sarkozy should change his name to Sarkozy-Bruni if he wants to be re-elected to the Elysée. But the tall-man theory of politics has real impact on how elections are conducted: in the 1976 US presidential election campaign, for instance, aides for Jimmy Carter (5ft 9in) did everything they could to ensure he was not photographed next to 6ft 1in incumbent Gerald Ford.

    A while ago, the great screenwriter William Goldman decided he would find out once and for all how tall screen uberhunk Sylvester Stallone was. Could it really be true that one of the most macho of movie icons was really a pint-sized poppet who might dangle from a key ring? Of course not, that would be absurd. But Goldman was concerned that Stallone had let it be believed he was taller than he was. “Sylvester Stallone has done a brilliant job of portraying himself to the viewing public as a big guy,” argues Keyes. How? The Chicago Times in 1990 claimed that, “The real-life Rambo is an official 5 foot 10½ inches tall, but that is with the generous boost of what can only be described as elevator shoes.”

    Goldman recalls how he discovered the truth about Sly in his 2000 book, Which Lie Did I Tell? – More Adventures in the Screen Trade. “I am hopelessly smitten with finding out the truth about how tall performers are,” he wrote. One day at the Cannes film festival, Goldman heard that Stallone was about to enter the pool at a hotel where they were staying. Goldman (6ft 1in) rushed to the pool and found Stallone barefoot, pulling a towel around him. How tall was he? “67 inches (5ft 7in), dripping wet,” wrote Goldman. He doesn’t relate how he measured Stallone, but let’s not spoil the story.

    But the world has changed since the real-life Rambo was in his pomp and when obsessing about stars’ heights was an unusual pastime. In this rolling news, shoot-every-celeb-from-every-angle world, in which many websites are devoted entirely to determining famous people’s heights (just make celebheights.com one of your bookmarks – you know you want to), it would be hard for anyone to conceal their true height for very long, be they movie star or French president. This is why Sarkozy must stop worrying about his height and embrace it publicly. He must be more like Ronnie Corbett, who once said: “I’m so short, I’m the only person in the UK with a full-length photo in their passport.” Now that would show Sarkozy to be a big man.

  • Author and journalist William Dobson travelled some 93,000 miles (150,000km) over two years, researching what makes authoritarian regimes tick.
    Gone are the days of Stalin-esque dictatorships where nefarious activities took place far from public view.
    Today’s regimes must be more nimble, clever, and willing to adapt to those who oppose them.
    Mr Dobson says many such countries, use the rhetoric of democracy to mask their consolidated rule – which some 20th Century dictators would not have bothered to do.
    In his new book, The Dictator’s Learning Curve
    In the last 10 years Russia has imprisoned nearly three million entrepreneurs, many unjustly. This statistic comes from a new ombudsman for business rights, Boris Titov, who says it is “hard to find another social group persecuted on such a large scale”. How has this come about?
    Businessmen have complained for years that people have been able to frame commercial rivals – by paying corrupt police officers to plant evidence and make arrests to order. But only now are they being taken seriously.
    More and more well-heeled entrepreneurs have been joining, even leading street protests in recent months, with reform of the courts one of their main demands.
    Perhaps those protests influenced President Putin’s decision last month to create a post of “ombudsman for business rights” – but he might also have been persuaded by the $84bn in capital that left Russia last year, a record amount. Russians are investing overseas because they fear for the safety of their businesses at home.
    Sometimes I just had to follow the instructions from above… I deeply regret it”
    End Quote Sergei Zlobin Former Volgograd judge
    “The economy will be completely destroyed,” says entrepreneur Vladimir Perevezin. “Because businessmen are not safe in our country – anyone could be sent to jail.”
    Perevezin knows what it’s like. He was imprisoned for more than seven years after being framed, he says, for money laundering.
    His friend Valery Gaiduk was also imprisoned for three years, convicted of fraud. “I’m 100% sure that a rival paid to have me arrested,” he says. He had been co-owner of a successful dental practice, but he claims police officers took a $500,000 bribe to frame him.
    At the root of the problem is the criminal justice system itself. Statistically, once officially accused of a crime in Russia, there is little chance of proving your innocence. Less than 1% of all criminal cases that make it to court result in a not guilty verdict or acquittal – and that figure comes from Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
    Critics say that in practice, if not in theory, courts operate on an assumption of guilt. The prosecution takes the word of the police, and the judge takes the word of the prosecution – no matter how unconvincing the evidence may be.
    “If a person ends up in a police cell as a suspect – he will find himself in court no matter what, and the court will find him guilty. That’s guaranteed,” says Marat Khisamutdinov, a former police officer.
    • A graduate of the prestigious Moscow State Institute of International Relations, in 1989 Titov joined Ural, one of Russia’s first private companies
    • In 2004, he became chairman of Delovaya Rossiya (Business Russia), a group that lobbies for the interests of medium-sized businesses
    • This year he was appointed ombudsman for entrepreneurs’ rights
    • Titov believes his key task in this role is to free businessmen who have been unjustly imprisoned – he also hopes to improve the investment climate
    It’s not surprising then that, off the record, many Muscovites are prepared to admit paying bribes to police officers when arrested – even if they’re innocent.
    “It’s best to solve the problem as soon as possible, at the police station,” Khisamutdinov says.
    “You only really need to pay the lowest arresting police officers. The rest of the machine works automatically.”
    It’s much more expensive, by all accounts, to buy your release once the wheels of justice have begun to turn. Valery Gaiduk says he was offered freedom for $300,000, but did not pay as he was unsure the deal would be honoured.
    One of the few judges prepared to talk openly about the failings of Russian courts is Sergei Zlobin, who resigned as head of the Volgograd regional criminal board four months ago. His portrait of life as a modern Russian judge is extraordinary.
    “Often there are huge gaps in the evidence,” Zlobin says.
    “Investigators make serious mistakes, but the system is such that even these mistakes are used as evidence against the defendant, and the guilty verdict must be issued anyway – otherwise the judge will face problems.”
    Khisamutdinov says he would not advise his son to join today’s police
    Zlobin says that in the thousands of cases he heard in the 15 years he was a judge, he only ever issued seven not guilty verdicts – and five of them were later overturned. Issuing a not guilty verdict, he says, was not only a “waste of time” it was risky.
    Judges come under all kinds of pressure from the Federal Security Service, prosecutors and the chairman of the court not to acquit defendants, he says, including blackmail. The result? Many innocent people are locked up.
    Zlobin and his family have received threats and abusive messages since his resignation. He knows it’s risky to speak openly, but says his conscience compels him to do so.
    “Sometimes I just had to follow the instructions from above. Now, with hindsight, I understand that what I was doing was wrong, and moreover, it was illegal… and I deeply regret it.”
    Several judges and lawyers told me that the system acts to protect itself, rather than the letter of the law.
    Asked if he had ever accepted a bribe to arrest someone on false charges, former police officer Marat Khisamutdinov refuses to answer.

    • Rebecca Kesby’s Assignment Russia: Waiting for Justice will be broadcast on BBC World Service on 5 July
    Would an officer would feel guilty about framing an innocent person? “No” he answered. “You don’t know him, you’ll never see him again, and you get a financial reward – so why do you care?”
    The business community will be watching Boris Titov’s next move very closely.
    He has hinted at a possible amnesty for prisoners serving time for “economic crimes”, if it is their first offence.
    This could affect more than 100,000 businessmen.
    It would not, however, have any implications for the most famous jailed businessmen – Mikhail Khodorkovsky (once Russia’s richest man) and his partner Platon Lebedev – as both have been convicted more than once.

  • I graduated from the Business Management Program last year from Canadian Business College at 2 Bloor Street West location. It was a superb learning experience. Both the facilites and teachers are very good and the administrative support is excellent. The school assisted me in my studies and employment search. I’m now working again in accounting at a non profit organisation.

    The people at Canadian Business College are warm and welcoming. I enjoyed returning to school after many years. As a mature person seeking a new start in life this was the perfect environment for me.

    I also attended their convocation and enjoyed the fine event after graduating. The event boasted a banquet buffet feast with wine at the historic facilities at woodsworth college university of toronto. After the formal presentation was live entertainment with John Kwesi Selassie who is a Juno Award winner and graduate of Canadian Business College. The DJ then played music and everyone danced during the celebration.

    I have good memories and highly recommend this college.

  • Think it over if you will pursue your education here. In terms of Government programs like OSAP and Second Career, they will surely support you because they are earning as you earn your studies, beware of their convincing power explanations regarding student loans. They will take care of you during your studies, but when you are done with your studies, they will not even care.
    One more thing, convocation/graduation is horrible, you have to pay for it, if not – you cannot attend. Even if it’s paid, not worth to attend to, terrible event! worst graduation speeches! Not a good school. Not destroying their reputation, I have completed my studies. The owner is Roselyn. Try to sneak in and try it, just see for yourself, attend their convocation and one of their programs.

  • Don’t go to Canadian Business College. WAste of money. i wasted lot of money. Receptionist lady in younge and bloor centre should be kicked out from the job. I don’t know why the director is keeping this old lady for the receptionist. She is very arrogant, rude and discriminative towards students.
    Go to govt colleges like george brown, centennial, humber and seneca.

  • I wish I had seen this review before entering into the college, I agree that this college is only into your money, classes are half ass, waste of time, You pay so much to get so little!.. Do not attend the Canadian Business College. It is a private College and if you do not have a transportation and only can use TTC, TTC will not give you a student card because it is a PRIVATE college.. The teachers there are not good teachers.. Well in the class they go out, most of the time I can’t find my teacher.. And when asking for help she moves you aside and does it for you.. That is not teaching!! And to my business law teacher.. You are an ex lawyer!.. I do not think she qualifies to teach! I have so much to say about this college that is not good.. The College is in a building, not an actual whole building.. The students are great but please do nto waste your money!…Please I advice you to go to a different college,, You will be wasting your time and money here!!

  • Do not attend the dental hygiene program, go to an accredited school.
    They were inept at delivering the program. The instructors for the most part were unprofessional and showed arrogance towards the student. It was the worst, most horrifying experience I have encountered ever in a learning institution, and you are paying them HUGE money to be treated like crap.

    Do yourself a huge favor, seek out an accredited program.
