Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole tore into Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's new cabinet lineup today, saying he's assembled a group of "largely inexperienced and ideological individuals" that pose a threat to the country's national unity and post-pandemic economic recovery. In a statement released as ministers were still being sworn in at Rideau Hall, O'Toole said Trudeau's cabinet picks are "yet another example" of his "record of style over substance." "Today's changes to the cabinet represent j
OTTAWA — The world's wealthiest countries didn't meet a decade-old goal to provide the developing world with US$100 billion in climate aid by 2020 and won't actually get there for another two years, a new analysis showed Monday. The news is expected to cast a pall over next week's United Nations COP26 climate talks in Scotland. The meeting is meant to finalize the rule book for meeting the 2015 Paris climate change targets, and lay out more ambitious plans to slow global warming. It was also sup
MONROE, La. (AP) — Growing up in the piney backwoods of northern Louisiana, where yards were dotted with crosses and the occasional Confederate flag, Jacob Brown was raised on hunting, fishing and dreams of becoming a state trooper. But within weeks of arriving at the Louisiana State Police training academy in Baton Rouge, instructors pegged Brown as trouble. One wrote that he was an arrogant, chronic rule breaker with “toxic” character traits that should disqualify him from ever joining the sta
The Dow Industrials and S&P 500 closed at record highs on Monday, as earnings season kicked in to high gear in one of the heaviest reporting weeks of the quarter with bellwethers in multiple sectors poised to announce results. While the Dow and S&P hit new highs, the Nasdaq outperformed on the day, buoyed by gains in Tesla and PayPal, and the tech-heavy index stands less than 1% away from its Sept. 7 closing record. Tesla Inc jumped 12.66% to its own new high of $1,045.02 and breached $1 trillion in market capitalization, after car rental firm Hertz placed an order for 100,000 Tesla cars, while Morgan Stanley raised its price target on the stock to $1,200 from $900 per share.
WASHINGTON (AP) — An 84-year-old Iranian-American man who has been detained in Iran for more than five years underwent surgery on Tuesday to clear a blockage in an artery to the brain that his family and supporters have described as life-threatening. The surgery on Baquer Namazi “appears to have been a success and Baquer is awake, although he remains groggy,” according to a statement from Namazi's attorney, Jared Genser. He is expected to remain in the intensive care unit for two more days and t
SYDNEY (Reuters) -All fully-vaccinated Australian citizens and permanent residents will be able to leave the country without a special exemption from Nov. 1, authorities said on Wednesday, as Australia eases coronavirus restrictions amid a rise in vaccination rates. Many of these are now expected to return after Sydney and Melbourne ended quarantine rules for inoculated travelers from Nov. 1. Other cities, mostly virus-free, are expected to ease their border rules once they reach higher vaccination rates.
Canada's hot inflation and recovering job market are raising pressure on the Bank of Canada to hike interest rates ahead of schedule, with investors looking to a policy announcement this week for clues that the central bank is turning more hawkish. The BoC, led by Governor Tiff Macklem, is expected on Wednesday to raise its inflation forecast and to largely end stimulus from its pandemic-era bond buying program, starting a countdown of sorts to the first interest rate hike since October 2018. But money markets see a different path, pricing in the first hike by April and nearly 100 basis points of tightening in total next year, up from 35 basis points in September.

GUILFORD, Conn. (AP) — A racial reckoning began years ago for the Guilford school system, first with an episode in which a student wore blackface makeup to a home football game and then a fraught debate over the elimination of its mascot, the Indians. After the killing of George Floyd, district leaders announced they were doubling down on efforts to address social justice and racism in schools and teaching materials. But an organized pushback in the overwhelmingly white community began last year

Services Nova Scotia Minister Colton Leblanc says he's open to making further changes to the Residential Tenancies Act. Leblanc was responding a day after several people raised concerns about the act during a meeting of the legislature's law amendments committee Monday.

Paul McLauchlin is tired of MLAs knocking on his door before provincial elections, asking him if there are any local construction projects he'd like to announce. "It's not that simple," said McLauchlin, president of the Rural Municipalities Association and reeve of Ponoka County. "Just running around with a big fake cheque out there." McLauchlan is optimistic that a bill introduced Monday by the Alberta government will create more accountability and fairness in how provincial infrastructure proj
