All times are eastern. 12:45 a.m. Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole is laying out his argument that the party under his leadership has changed to meet the modern concerns of Canadians.

Bitcoin, the biggest and the best known cryptocurrency, traded around $43,000, recovering from a fall to $40,192 earlier in the session.

Canada's unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic election was never going to be easy.

(Reuters) -A body found in a U.S. national park in Wyoming has been identified as Gabby Petito, the young woman who went missing during a road trip with her fiance and that her death was a homicide, the FBI said on Tuesday.

Investigators have called Laundrie, 23, a "person of interest" in the case.

A federal appeals court on Tuesday will consider whether Missouri can implement a sweeping law aimed at limiting abortions. The law adopted in 2019 would ban abortions at or around the eighth week of pregnancy. It also would prohibit abortions based on a Down syndrome diagnosis. The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis isn't expected to rule for several weeks. In June, a three-judge 8th Circuit panel upheld an injunction from U.S. District Judge Howard Sachs prohibiting Missouri from e

Liberal Robert Morrissey says campaigning during the COVID-19 pandemic turned out to be helpful in getting him re-elected in Egmont. CBC has projected Morrissey will hold onto his riding, a seat he's held since since 2015. Because of public health measures, Morrissey held fewer rallies than in past elections. He says that allowed him to meet more people at the doorstep to hear their concerns, then move on to the next house without stopping in for tea and a visit. "The campaign was executed the w
People's Party of Canada (PPC) leader Maxime Bernier was in Saskatoon on election night as the relatively new right-wing party gained votes throughout the country, but failed to win a single seat. Taking the stage to a chant of "freedom," Bernier told supporters the PPC will only continue to gain traction in future elections and that this was a historic night. But Bernier's campaign event, held in a city that is a current COVID-19 hotspot, may have put him and his supporters in violation of Sask
Global News' Robin Gill is at NDP headquarters where everything is all quiet following a projected Liberal minority government. The NDP could potentially be adding two more seats in Parliament after winning 24 seats in 2019.

Davenport was particularly tight, with NDP candidate Alejandra Bravo and Liberal incumbent Julie Dzerowicz trading off leading their riding through the night. In Spadina-Fort York, NDP candidate No
Fredericton voters have kept candidates on their toes on election night. Liberal Jenica Atwin has pulled ahead in the race against Conservative candidate Andrea Johnson — but by a hair — after 135 of 154 polls reported. At 12:50 a.m. Tuesday, Atwin was ahead with 13,856 votes, or 36 per cent, and Johnson had 13,718 votes, also at 36 per cent. More than 2,000 local mail-in ballots won't even be counted until Tuesday, so it's possible a result won't be clear when people wake up Tuesday morning. Jo
Nearing the halfway point of the abbreviated CFL season, what have we learned so far? The defending Grey Cup champion Winnipeg Blue Bombers are still the class of the league and everyone else is playing for second place. We should get a better idea where the Roughriders rank in that second tier this Friday night, when they face the BC Lions in Vancouver. The Riders' winning record includes their season opening victory over the Lions at Mosaic Stadium. However, the Lions are not the same team the
