Electronic gear shifters on some newer Fiat Chrysler SUVs and cars are so confusing that drivers have exited the vehicles with the engines running and while they are still in gear, causing crashes and serious injuries, U.S. safety investigators have determined. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in documents posted during the weekend, has doubled the number of vehicles involved in an investigation of the problem, but it stopped short of seeking a recall. Agency tests found that operating the centre console shift lever "is not intuitive and provides poor tactile and visual feedback to the driver, increasing the potential for unintended gear selection," investigators wrote in the documents.

Premier Brian Gallant used a Sunday night appearance on Radio-Canada's popular Tout le monde en parle to debate Montreal's mayor over the merits of building the Energy East pipeline.

The former Conservative campaign manager who made an early — and involuntary — exit from the federal election campaign last fall is offering her version of her party’s drubbing at the polls. In an op-ed article in Monday’s Globe and Mail, Jenni Byrne confirms what many critics of the first-past-the-post electoral system say — that the party needed the Liberals and NDP to split the non-Conservative vote to win. “The party needed the NDP to do well,” writes Byrne, a formidable Tory backroom power broker during the Conservatives’ decade in power who publicly bore the brunt of the blame for the failed campaign.

The Canadian Federation of Students used about 200 meetings in a week of lobbying on Parliament Hill to argue for a federal post-secondary education bill that would repurpose cash used for programs like the registered education savings plan into a $3.3-billion annual transfer for provinces to make post-secondary education free.

Adults who experience a concussion appear to have a long-term suicide risk three times higher than that of the general population — and that risk rises to four times higher if the traumatic brain injury occurred on a weekend, a study suggests. The study, published Monday in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, also found that having a subsequent concussion was associated with a further increase in the risk that a person would take his or her own life. "We know that a concussion can cause lasting changes in the brain that can alter mood, perhaps resulting in behaviour changes, including impulsivity," said principal researcher Dr. Donald Redelmeier, an internal medicine specialist and senior scientist at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto.

The B.C. NDP's housing critic is calling for an inquiry into Metro Vancouver's real estate market over a technique known as shadow flipping, under which sales contracts are reassigned, in some instances multiple times, before the sale of a home is closed. Vancouver member of the legislative assembly David Eby outlined his concerns on Monday at a news conference, where he said some Realtors are using the technique to avoid paying taxes and, in some cases, to avoid controls established to prevent money laundering.
