A big evergreen tree with shiny lights is probably the last thing you'd expect to see in a store at this time of year, which is why some shoppers were surprised to see Costco has started selling Christmas trees and decorations this week in the barbeque aisle. It's not the first time Costco has pulled out the tinsel and decorations in the summer, but it seems this year the shopping warehouse is trying to ring in the holidays extra early. At the Costco store in Moncton, many wondered just how early is too early.

If it wasn't for the bad news, there wouldn't be much news at all when it comes to Alberta's economy these days. Alberta has been sputtering since the price of oil began to plunge two years ago.

Volkswagen's plan to fix most of its 2-litre diesel engines that cheat on emissions tests includes a computer software update and a larger catalytic converter to trap harmful nitrogen oxide, and it may not hurt mileage or performance, according to dealers who were briefed by executives on the matter. Limited details of the plan were made public last week at a regional dealer meeting in Newark, New Jersey, by Volkswagen of America Chief Operating Officer Mark McNabb, said two dealers who asked not to be identified because the plan hasn't been made public. If the fixes don't hurt performance and mileage, that could be a big boost for Volkswagen, which last month agreed to spend up to $15.3 billion to settle consumer lawsuits and government allegations that its diesels cheated on U.S. emissions tests.
Leslie Van Houten, the youngest member of the Manson "family" to take part in a series of gruesome California murders in 1969, has been denied freedom again — her past overshadowing her decades as a model prisoner. California Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday overturned a parole board recommendation in April that found Van Houten, 66, was no longer the violent woman who helped slaughter a wealthy grocer and his wife. The board noted that during her 46 years in prison, Van Houten completed college degrees, ran self-help groups for other inmates and had a spotless disciplinary record.

Delegates to the Democratic National Convention gave mostly positive reviews to Hillary Clinton's choice for vice-president Friday, saying he will appeal to moderates but also do little to soothe disenchanted Bernie Sanders supporters. Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine received praise for his wide-ranging experience, even as many delegates acknowledged that he would not generate the level of enthusiasm or party unity as a progressive or first-ever Latino pick. Sanders delegates in particular hoped for the selection of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who aligns more closely with Sanders on positions such as regulating Wall Street.

The more than two-year-long hunt for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 will be suspended once the current search area in the Indian Ocean has been completely scoured, the three countries conducting the operation announced Friday, possibly ending all hopes of solving aviation's greatest mystery. Some families of the lost plane's 239 passengers and crew were angry over the decision to stop what is already the most expensive search in aviation history, having cost 180 million Australian dollars ($135 million). "In the absence of new evidence, Malaysia, Australia and China have collectively decided to suspend the search upon completion of the 120, 000-square-kilometre (46,300-square-mile) search area," Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said after a meeting with his Australian and Chinese counterparts.
