The area was the site of heate

A post-election report on the Conservative Party's 2021 campaign performance found leader Erin O'Toole had a strong start to the 36-day electoral contest but faltered at the finish because he was "over-managed" and "over-coached" by senior staff. The report, commissioned by the party brass and compiled by former Alberta MP James Cumming, concluded O'Toole didn't connect well enough with voters because he "wasn't himself" at key moments in the campaign. "The team should have let him be him rather

MONTREAL — The COVID-19 situation in Quebec appears to be improving, but restrictions must be eased carefully due to the fragility of the hospital system and slow uptake of vaccine boosters, the province's interim public health director said Thursday. Dr. Luc Boileau told reporters that the situation appeared to be "stabilizing" and that several indicators, including hospitalizations, were trending downward. "We’re not crying victory, but it feels good to say there are things that seem to be imp
