    Andrew Scheer Says He Supports Reducing Global Emissions Rather Than Domestic

    Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer has dropped some breadcrumbs for what his eventual climate plan will look like, saying he believes Canada can reduce global emissions rather than domestic — and without a carbon tax. Scheer took shots at the Liberal government's plan to impose a carbon price on recalcitrant provinces during an interview with CBC Radio's Michael Enright on Sunday, framing the environmental policy proposal as a tax issue. "Don't tell Canadians that you've got an environmental plan and that's it's really just in fact a new taxation tool," Scheer said.

    In Washington, the U.S. president reiterated his concern about the treaty and said the United States would build up its nuclear arsenal. "Russia has not adhered to the agreement. When they do, then we’ll all be smart and we’ll all stop." Asked if that were a threat to Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump said: "It’s a threat to whoever you want.

    Notley calls on Ottawa buy more rail cars to get Alberta oil to market

    Premier Rachel Notley is calling on the federal government to buy more rail cars to transport Alberta oil. Notley said the differential between West Texas Intermediate and Western Canadian Select, which has vaulted above $50 US a barrel in recent weeks, is a "punishing" number that's costing the federal government tens of millions of dollars a day. Notley pointed out that the federal government supports grain transportation by rail, and said it's time to increase the capacity for oil as well.

    Outcomes of 10 Ontario municipal races to watch

    Voters across Ontario cast ballots Monday to elect their next municipal governments. The veteran politician secured a significant lead over his main challenger, former chief planner Jennifer Keesmaat. Patrick Brown, the former leader of Ontario's Progressive Conservatives, made a political comeback after snatching the mayoralty from incumbent Linda Jeffrey in this city northwest of Toronto. Brown was forced to give up the party reins in January amid allegations of sexual misconduct he denies, months before the Tories went on to win a majority under Ford.

    Amazon.com, Qualcomm to put Alexa assistant in more headphones

    Under the deal, Qualcomm will release a set of chips that any maker of Bluetooth headphones can use to embed Alexa directly into the device. When the headphones are paired to a phone with the Alexa app on it, users will be able to talk to the voice assistant by tapping a button on the headphones. The functionality would be similar to Apple Inc's AirPods wireless earbuds, which enable users can tap the devices to talk to Apple's virtual assistant, Siri.

    Bible Museum admits some of its Dead Sea Scrolls are fake

    When Washington's $500 million Museum of the Bible held its grand opening in November 2017, attended by Vice-President Mike Pence, there were questions even then about the authenticity of its centerpiece collection of Dead Sea Scrolls. The announcement has serious implications not only for the Bible Museum but for other evangelical Christian individuals and institutions who paid top dollar for what now seems to be a massive case of archaeological fraud. The scrolls are a collection of ancient Jewish religious texts first discovered in the mid-1940s in caves on the western shore of the Dead Sea in what is now Israel.

    Air Canada jet damaged while on LaGuardia taxiway by another jet

    Airport officials in New York say an Air Canada flight that had just landed at the city's LaGuardia Airport late Monday afternoon was damaged as it sat on the taxiway by another passing plane. Rudy King, spokesman for the Port Authority New York and New Jersey, says the Air Canada jet was stationary on the taxiway when an American Eagle plane operated by Republic Airlines that was attempting to turn clipped its wing. Air Canada spokeswoman Angela Mah says the A320 jet was arriving from Toronto with 142 passengers and everyone on board disembarked normally, but the aircraft is now out of service.

    Toronto Mayor John Tory cruises to victory; tech issues extend voting elsewhere

    Toronto Mayor John Tory easily won re-election on Monday after a spirited campaign marked by unprecedented interference from the provincial government, while dozens of Ontario communities were forced to extend voting due to widespread technical difficulties. Tory took 63 per cent of the vote while his main rival, former chief city planner Jennifer Keesmaat, took 24 per cent — giving the incumbent mayor a far more significant victory than when he was first elected four years ago.

    Mega Millions jackpot hits $1.6B, thanks to worsening odds

    If it seems like lottery jackpots are getting larger and larger, it's because they are getting larger and larger. Tuesday night's Mega Millions estimated grand prize has hit a staggering $1.6 billion, continuing a trend of giant jackpots. Lottery officials changed the odds in recent years to lessen the chance of winning a jackpot, which in turn increased the opportunity for top prizes to reach stratospheric levels.

    'This really turned the tide': The Enigma machine and World War II in spotlight at U of A

    It was created to be an unsolvable puzzle and its moniker, the Enigma, indicates as much. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the first patent for the Enigma machine, a device used to encrypt secret communications for the German military during World War II. The machine exists at the nexus of military history, computing science, and mathematics, which could explain the 500-person crowd that's expected to attend a public lecture on the Enigma at the University of Alberta this week.

    Facebook shuts accounts of marketing group in Brazil election

    Facebook Inc said on Monday it had removed 68 pages and 43 accounts associated with a Brazilian marketing group, Raposo Fernandes Associados (RFA), for violating the social media network's misrepresentation and spam policies. The newspaper O Estado de S. Paulo said the group was the main network of support for far-right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro on the internet. Bolsonaro is expected to win a runoff on Sunday in Brazil's most polarized election in a generation in which social media has become the main battleground between the candidates.

    An amateur historian in Whitehorse has settled one gravesite mystery, while another lives on. Murray Lundberg started sleuthing earlier this month after renovation work at the Pioneer Cemetery uncovered a pair of large, unmarked graves. Lundberg had a hunch it might be the final resting place of Otto and Kate Partridge — the prominent couple who built Ben-My-Chree, an idyllic tourist retreat on Tagish Lake, a century ago — but he had no proof.

    Report casts doubt on value of protecting Chapter 19 in Cda-US trade talks

    A new report from a left-wing think tank says the dispute-resolution tool at the heart of Canada's year-long trade battle with the United States has a spotty track record of helping Canadian exporters. The report, to be released Tuesday by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, explores whether protecting Chapter 19, one of the most intractable issues during the NAFTA talks, was worth all the grief. It says out of 54 complaints filed against the U.S. since 1994, Canada obtained some form of relief in only 12 of them, with the majority being terminated before any finding was issued.

    Doctors see spike in limb paralysis in kids, following viral infections

    Cases of a rare polio-like condition have begun turning up in some Canadian children, following reports of dozens of cases in the U.S. in recent weeks. Known as acute flaccid myelitis, the condition causes muscle weakness in one or more limbs, and typically occurs after some kind of viral infection. Dr. Jeremy Friedman, pediatrician-in-chief at the Hospital for Sick Children, wouldn't give an exact number, but said doctors at the Toronto hospital have seen less than 20 cases of limb-based paralysis since the beginning of September — with about a dozen of them confirmed as acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM.
