Calgary property sales cooled in September by nearly 12 per cent when compared with last year, but the market for more affordable housing options is making gains, the Calgary Real Estate Board said Monday. Demand for detached housing slowed for the sixth month in a row, CREB said in a report on September's sales, and the decline is being attributed to a narrowing segment of the market: homes priced around $500,000. A "significant" reduction in supply has left few options for potential purchasers
Windsor hasn't had a municipal election with a voter turnout higher than 40 per cent in more than a decade, and one resident says making voting more accessible could help. "I think voters are having to jump through a lot of hoops and put in a lot of effort just to get their vote in, where it should be made very easy and accessible for them, especially with Windsor's ridiculously low voter turnout," said Ward 10 resident Amna Masoodi. Across Ontario, just 38 per cent of those eligible cast ballot

The cross-border service, which is provided by Transit Windsor, has been cancelled since the pandemic began.

The city's website says that special events service on the tunnel bus is suspended until further notice. The sche
MONTREAL/OTTAWA (Reuters) -Quebec Premier Francois Legault, who campaigned to protect the French language and cap immigration, was set for a second term on Monday with a thumping election victory in the Canadian province, promising to cut taxes to offset higher living costs. His center-right Coalition Avenir Quebec (CAQ) is on track to boost its majority in the mostly French-speaking Canadian province of Quebec, CBC News projected. The ruling CAQ, which was founded in 2011, was set to win at least 83 of the 125 seats in Quebec's legislature, according to CBC.

Mexican state power utility Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE) last year lost an international arbitration case to Canadian firm ATCO Ltd , and had to pay redress of about $85 million, according to three people familiar with the matter.

Once legal fees and interest were added, the sum came to around $100 million, which CFE paid ATCO in December, they added.
The Quebec Liberal Party has lost some seats but will return to the Quebec National Assembly as Official Opposition. Leader Dominique Anglade faced a tight race in her own Montreal riding of Saint-Henri–Sainte-Anne in Monday's provincial election but was elected by just over 2,700 votes. With 99.9 per cent of polls reporting, the Liberals are leading or elected in 21 ridings, the majority of which are in the Montreal area. In 2018, the Quebec Liberal Party (PLQ) won 32 seats — a historic low for
It's been more than a year-and-a-half since Jana William's remains were found near the Red River at Alfred Avenue in Winnipeg — and her family is still looking for answers. Police declared 28-year-old Jana's death a homicide in March 2021. Charlene Williams, Jana's mom, said she hasn't heard from the detective on her daughter's case since May last year. "I'm mad about it. It's like they don't even care about what's going on with our people, our women and children. They're not doing nothing, they
The Łutsel K'e Dene First Nation is asking the courts to quash the search warrant that wildlife officers used last month to search a culture camp for evidence of illegal caribou hunting. If the warrant is quashed, it could mean the territorial government can not use any of the evidence it seized during the search in any prosecution for the illegal hunting, throwing its case into jeopardy. In a Yellowknife courtroom on Monday, territorial government lawyer Roger Shepard said no one has been charg

In a news release on Monday, public health said they normally see 15 to 20 new cases of HIV per year, but this year they've already recorded 20 to 25 new cases as of the end of August.

OTTAWA — A Canadian polling expert is raising concerns about the results of the Statistics Canada language census after the order of two questions were swapped on the national questionnaire last year. The national statistics agency flipped the order of two questions related to which language Canadians spoke at home on a regular basis and which languages they spoke most often. Association for Canadian Studies CEO Jack Jedwab says the results showed an unprecedented rise in the number of Canadians
