Despite a close loss against the incumbent Liberal candidate Michael McLeod, the NDP's Kelvin Kotchilea, who was a near second place, isn't too beat up about it. "I'm actually feeling very happy and positive about the results that I got," Kotchilea told CBC's Loren McGinnis, host of The Trailbreaker Tuesday morning. "As … a newcomer to politics, it shows you that if you have passion and people get to know you as a person, along with having an education, that people are willing to put that 'X' ne
NEW YORK (AP) — Millions of people will get a chance to get to know the shy, teenager Evan Hansen this month, but Ben Platt is waving farewell. The actor and singer is intimately intertwined with Evan, originating the role in 2015 and eventually leading the stage musical “Dear Evan Hansen” to its world debut in Washington, D.C. He soon took Evan off-Broadway, then to Broadway and Grammy triumphs. He is now unveiling the character on film, a final pairing. “I really was very grateful and very pri
The family of a British teenager killed in a car crash involving a U.S. diplomat's wife said on Tuesday they had reached a resolution in a civil damages claim over the 2019 accident, and could now focus on a separate criminal case.

Sacoolas left Britain shortly after the accident claiming diplomatic immunity from criminal prosecution.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden is betting on millions more rapid, at-home tests to help curb the latest deadly wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is overloading hospitals and threatening to shutter classrooms around the country. But the tests have already disappeared from pharmacy shelves in many parts of the U.S., and manufacturers warn it will take them weeks to ramp up production, after scaling it back amid plummeting demand over the summer. The latest shortage is another painful rem

With the federal political landscape looking pretty much the way it did a month ago, Premier Tim Houston says he expects the affordable child-care agreement between Ottawa and Nova Scotia to proceed as planned. "I think the deal was signed in good faith," Houston said in a telephone interview Tuesday.

Darcie Lanthier says she's "officially retiring" from politics and that she won't be running for a seat in the next federal election. The Green Party candidate for Charlottetown said in an interview on Island Morning Tuesday that she'll continue to be active in the community, even if she won't be throwing her hat into the political ring again. "The next time there's an election, you can expect to find me in the office making phone calls and knocking on the doors for somebody else," she said. Lan

(Reuters) -U.S. President Joe Biden told the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday he would work with Congress to double funds by 2024 to $11.4 billion per year to help developing nations deal with climate change. The funding would help achieve a global goal set more than a decade ago of $100 billion per year to support climate action in vulnerable countries by 2020. "The best part is, making these ambitious investments isn't just good climate policy, it's a chance for each of our countries to invest in ourselves and our own future," Biden told the annual gathering of world leaders.
Canada's main stock market rallied on Tuesday and the dollar edged higher against its U.S. counterpart, as the re-election of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberals reassured investors that the outlook for the economy would continue to improve. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index ended up 89.75 points, or 0.5%, at 20,244.29, recovering from its lowest closing level in nearly two months the day before.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The U.S. Justice Department and six states filed an antitrust lawsuit on Tuesday against American Airlines Group Inc and JetBlue Airways Corp seeking to stop a partnership the government said could lead to higher fares in busy Northeastern U.S. airports. The lawsuit asked a federal court in Boston to stop the "Northeast Alliance" partnership, announced in July 2020 and approved by the U.S. Transportation Department shortly before the end of the Trump administration.

Student leaders at the University of Alberta are warning that students with disabilities may be getting an inequitable learning experience as a result of changes in services to assist them.

Eric Zemmour, a right-wing talk-show star who says Mohammed should be banned as a first name in France, may not yet officially be running in the 2022 presidential race but he is already unsettling confidants of President Emmanuel Macron.

A polarising figure who has made a career of testing the limits of political correctness, Zemmour is climbing in voter surveys despite not having declared himself as a candidate.
