Martine Corbeil has lived in her Montreal home since 1997 and has always parked her car in the driveway out front. But last August, she got a letter from the borough of Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve. "It said that we were not allowed to park in front of our house according to this bylaw," she said. That will certainly complicate things for her — and not just because she has to carry her groceries from a curbside spot. She has an electric car and there's a charging station attached to her house s
Amazon's surprise decision to shut down its AmazonSmile donation program has left thousands of its nonprofit beneficiaries disappointed and concerned about finding ways to replace the funding.

NEW YORK (AP) — When Bill Lawrence was developing his new Apple TV+ comedy ”Shrinking,” he introduced one character in the pilot script as a “Harrison Ford-type” — but never dreamed he would get the real deal. Although the showrunner has had comedy success working with big names and executive-producing hits like “Scrubs,” “Cougar Town” and “Ted Lasso,” nabbing a huge movie star like Ford seemed unrealistic. But he decided to take a shot and send Ford the script. He was gobsmacked when the “India
OTTAWA — Key players and close watchers of Rogers Communications Inc.'s proposed takeover of Shaw Communications Inc. shared their views on the $26-billion deal at a House of Commons committee Wednesday as Industry Minister François-Philippe Champagne deliberates on its fate.

PRAGUE (AP) — A retired army general who backs military support for Ukraine and a euroskeptic billionaire who has questioned NATO's collective defense clause are contesting for the ceremonial but prestigious post of Czech president in a runoff starting Friday. Former Gen. Petr Pavel and Andrej Babis advanced to a second round of voting because none of the eight initial candidates received an absolute majority in the first round two weeks ago. The polls favor Pavel, an independent candidate who c

After two years of travel restrictions, tour operators in the N.W.T. haven't seen the level of visitors return to what they were before the COVID-19 pandemic, according to several tour operators. Many are happy to have the numbers they do, but say some unfortunate obstacles cropped up this year. This includes the lack of flights, the rising cost of travel and a month of overcast skies in January, a popular aurora viewing time in Yellowknife. "Everyone who's here is here to see aurora, and if the

HONG KONG (AP) — About 20% of the Americans in Hong Kong have left for various reasons over the past two years, the U.S. consul general in the semi-autonomous Chinese city said, drawing harsh criticism from Beijing for allegedly interfering in its affairs. Hong Kong’s strict anti-COVID-19 measures and “diminishing freedoms” have “clearly impacted the city and the people in it,” Greg May said, citing the departure of roughly 15,000 Americans as one of the outcomes. He said about 70,000 Americans
NEW YORK (AP) — Justin Bieber's record-breaking pop hits from “Baby” to “Sorry” are no longer his after the superstar sold the rights to all his early career music. The Canadian-American pop star’s six albums, including his most recent album “Justice,” are part of the massive catalog sale deal with Hipgnosis, a U.K-based music investment company. Top artists like Sting, Bob Dylan and Shakira have in recent years sold rights to their catalogs for massive sums, but at 28 Bieber is the youngest sup

Halifax's new commercial tax system will shift the burden to business parks so big-box stores pay more, but it's possible small businesses will get caught up in the change. During a budget committee meeting Wednesday, city staff gave council an update on what the new zone-based tax system with tiered rates could mean for this fiscal year, since the new rules come into place April 1. Municipal commercial taxes in three of the parks — Dartmouth Crossing, Bayers Lake and Bedford Commons — will be t
LONDON (AP) — A lawyer for Eva Green alleged Thursday that producers of a collapsed film tried to damage the French actress’ reputation by depicting her as a “diva.” The performer, who played Vesper Lynd in James Bond thriller “Casino Royale,” is suing producers for a $1 million fee she says she is owed for “A Patriot." Green, 42, was lined up to star in the sci-fi thriller alongside Charles Dance and Helen Hunt, and was also an executive producer on the project, which collapsed in late 2019. Pr
LANSING, Mich.. (AP) — Just three months ago, Rep. Elissa Slotkin was one of the most vulnerable Democrats in Washington, fighting an expensive campaign for reelection in a Michigan district that Republicans were sure they could retake. That was all a distant memory recently as Slotkin sat beaming next to Sen. Debbie Stabenow at a Lansing luncheon commemorating Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Fresh off a surprisingly comfortable 5 percentage-point victory, Slotkin was eager to praise Stabenow, the d
