Canadians woke up to a virtually unchanged political landscape on Tuesday after an expensive pandemic election they did not want, with many venting their fury at the C$612 million ($477.60 million) cost. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberals won the election https://www.reuters.com/world/americas/canadas-trudeau-vows-cooperation-with-opponents-after-bid-majority-fails-2021-09-21, but it was unpopular from the start for its timing, two years ahead of schedule and during a rising fourth wave of COVID-19. Voters gave Trudeau a third term but denied him the parliamentary majority he called the election to win.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on Tuesday urged U.S. passenger airlines "to commit to take more action" to address reports of violent or unruly passengers. The FAA said the industry is facing a record number of airline passenger disturbances, and it plans to soon hold similar meetings with representatives from airports and labor. The meeting with groups, including Airlines for America, a group representing American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and others, discussed "ways the industry can work together to reduce the number of unruly passenger incidents," the FAA said, adding it "believes additional action by the airlines and all aviation stakeholders is necessary to stop the unsafe behavior."
Long lines wound around the Tapestry Hall polling station in Cambridge as waiting times for voting averaged about one hour, according to voters. Many voters were frustrated earlier in the day with some even tearing up their voting cards and walking away, according to poll workers.

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is well aware of the NDP's priorities if he's looking for a dance partner during the upcoming Parliament. While some ridings are still too close to call, the Liberals will once again form a minority government, meaning that, despite making just incremental gains, the NDP has leverage to push the Liberals on some of the big-ticket policies it proposed during this campaign. While the Bloc and NDP are likely to provide enough votes to pass

Filmmaker James DeMonaco remembers the day “Rocky III” hit theaters as if it were yesterday. On Staten Island in 1982, it was an all-out event. He waited four hours in line to get tickets and saw it twice in a day. Kids at his school carried the poster around like a trophy. There even were fights in the theater and squabbles between the “tough guys” and the “nerds” over who was allowed to love the character. It’s these memories that inspired “ This is the Night, ” which follows one Staten Island

SALMON ARM, B.C. — The main doors of many public schools in Salmon Arm, B.C., will remain locked Tuesday but the school district says it has lifted "hold and secure" measures in place since a disturbing protest last week.

A scheduled professional development day kept students out of class
VANCOUVER — Jagmeet Singh says he feels secure in his leadership despite the NDP's seat count barely shifting amid a pandemic election in which Canadians consistently ranked him as the most popular leader. The NDP leader says his team will still get work done in Parliament even though they hover within a few seats of their 2019 tally. The New Democrats had 24 seats in the House of Commons at dissolution and while some close races are still being counted it appears they have only gained a seat or
NEW YORK (AP) — With some powerful NATO allies at odds over a submarine sale, the group's leader suggested Tuesday that members need to focus on “the big picture” and not let the dispute between France and the U.S. and Britain open an ongoing rift. A U.S. and British deal to supply nuclear-powered subs to Australia — which had been set to buy diesel-powered ones from a French company instead — has France crying foul, with support from European Union diplomats. But NATO Secretary General Jens Sto
