Tuesday's ballistic missile was the 39th launched by North Korea this year.

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.

Across Ontario, just 38 per cent of those eligible cast ballot
