Paul had seen a swell of support in last year's byelection, when she drew 33 per cent of the vote and came in second behind Liberal Marci Ien.

The Riders' winning record includes their season opening victory over the Lions at Mosaic Stadium. However, the Lions are not the same team the

OTTAWA — Canadians have chosen another minority Liberal government — almost identical to the one it replaced — to finish the fight against COVID-19 and rebuild the shattered economy. Precisely how stable a minority remains to be seen, as results were still trickling in and there were tight contests in dozens of ridings as the clock started running out on Monday night. There are also almost 800,000 mail-in ballots to be counted, starting Tuesday, which could yet change the preliminary results in
Persistent default fears eclipsed efforts by China Evergrande Group's chairman to lift confidence in the embattled firm on Tuesday, as Beijing showed no signs it would intervene to stem any domino effects across the global economy. Analysts played down the threat of Evergrande's troubles becoming the country's "Lehman moment," though concerns about the spillover risks of a messy collapse of what was once China's top-selling property developer have roiled markets. In an effort to revive battered confidence in the firm, Evergrande Chairman Hui Ka Yuan said in a letter to staff the company is confident it will "walk out of its darkest moment" and deliver property projects as pledged.

Saskatchewan residents no longer need a PIN to sign up for an eHealth account. The move was made to make it easier for citizens to access their COVID-19 vaccine information through MySaskHealthRecord. The change came into effect Monday due to high demand from people looking to access their account after the province announced upcoming vaccine requirements for many public spaces.
