  • Costco selling Christmas trees in July has people asking 'Why'?

    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.

  • Critics: Trump speech signals shift to coded race language

    During the primaries, Donald Trump threw red-meat rhetoric to supporters, pledging to build a wall on the Mexico border and to ban Muslim immigrants. Now that he's the GOP presidential nominee, who needs to appeal to the whole country instead of just Republicans, some observers say he's turning to code words to gin up racial animosity and fear among America's white voters. Trump "didn't get on stage and issue a bunch of racial epithets," said Emory University political scientist Andra Gillespie, who watched his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention.

    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.
