Pets and Hot Weather

Now that we’re seeing some really nice, hot weather, one thing to keep in mind is if you’re travelling with your pets in your vehicle.  The Calgary Humane Society has a great article on things to keep in mind if you leave your pet in your car.  And remember, they are using temperatures of 26 celcius.  This week we are expecting 30+, so these numbers increase that much more. Not only is it cruel to leave your pet in a parked vehicle in these temperatures, worst-case scenario could also leave you with some legal issues, fines, or even criminal charges. So, be smart, read this article, and then have a better understanding of what you should and should not do. Did you know that Independent Reporters provides donations to both the Calgary Humane Society and the Edmonton Humane Society.  Each year we track the number of online bookings our clients make through our web site and donate $1 for each day clients schedule court reporting services.  Next time you are looking to book a court reporter, do keep us in mind and book online. That way we can continue to provide yearly support to these two great Humane...

Our Teams are in the Playoffs!

It’s been a while, but both our Alberta NHL teams, the Calgary Flames and the Edmonton Oilers, are in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs!  For both our offices, this means a bit of a rivalry. Although they are not playing against each other – yet – it does mean that the trash talking will begin as each game is played and each team wins or loses. The best part, should both our teams move out of the first round and continue on to the second, they will face each other. This means the Battle of Alberta will once again happen and bring on one of the best rivalries in hockey. We all remember from the past just how much each city hates the other’s team, so much is being hoped for in both the Oilers and Flames advancing to face-off against each other as they have in the past. All of us here at Calgary and Edmonton Independent Reporters will be very excited to see this happen and see whose team will get bragging rights over the other. Good luck to both our teams in...
