MONTREAL — Quebec's major party leaders made one final appeal to voters on the eve of Monday's general election as polls continued to show François Legault's party with a considerable lead over his adversaries. A poll on Sunday presented a picture that was relatively unchanged since the beginning of the election: the Coalition Avenir Québec far in the lead, with four other parties in a pack battling for a distant second. The web survey results released Sunday for Quebecor media properties Journa

British finance minister Kwasi Kwarteng will vow on Monday to stay the course with his planned tax cuts but promised an "iron-clad" commitment to fiscal discipline after a week of market turmoil in response to his growth package. At the start of the governing Conservative Party's annual conference, Kwarteng and Prime Minister Liz Truss have been forced to defend a plan that failed to spell out the financing for deep tax cuts combined with an expensive package of energy subsidies. That lack of detail roiled the markets, with the pound falling to record lows against the dollar and government borrowing costs soaring.
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

There's disagreement about what hue the street lights currently are in parts of downtown Vancouver, but they're definitely not white. Perhaps "light blue," "definitely purple,'' or "black light-ish" — all depending on who you ask walking under their glow on Davie Street, near Richards. Nancy and Sebastian Schlote have been puzzling about the new street light colour while out on walks, and came up with their own theories. "I thought they were experimenting with something, like energy savings," Na
More Ottawans voted in early advance polls ahead of this year's municipal election than in previous years, and a University of Ottawa political scientist says he expects overall voter turnout to also be higher. In four advance voting days from Sept. 24 to 27, where eligible voters could drop by any of nine locations across the city, 18,876 Ottawans cast a ballot. That's an increase of more than 3,000 over 2018 and more than 10,000 over 2014, when special advance polls debuted and were open for j

In his first public statements since Sunday's election, Lopez Aliaga said he would wait for the final official results before asking his rivals to work together, and calling for leftist President Pedro Castillo to step down amid an investigation of alleged corruption against him.

New York City's office market rebounded in the third quarter from a year earlier, though leasing remained below levels seen before the rise of remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic, and higher interest rates and a strong dollar dampened new investment in the sector. Office leasing volume rose 27.6% to 9.23 million square feet, the strongest quarterly gain since the end of 2019 – a gangbuster year for leasing in New York, according to Colliers International Group Inc. "We're still hearing of large pending deals," said Frank Wallach, executive managing director of New York research at Colliers, adding that leases in the works for months typically close by year's end.
