    Wildly conflicting messages from North Korea give Trump second thoughts about summit

    When Moon Jae-in's White House visit was first proposed, the South Korean leader would be coming to brief U.S. President Donald Trump on strategies for his imminent summit — a groundbreaking, deal-making session between the United States and North Korea that could, in Trump's words, be "a very special moment for World Peace". No one is so optimistic anymore that Trump can convince North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to give up his nuclear weapon program.

Now, the city's first overhaul of its downtown plan in decades — a document years in the making, which is headed to city council this week for a final stamp of approval — is hammering home an increasingly popular viewpoint: Livable communities need plenty of sunlight.

    Province House gardens could prove fertile ground for archeologists

    When excavators roll onto the Province House grounds to begin a major garden project, an archaeologist will be there keeping a keen eye on each shovelful of dirt. Because despite its location in downtown Halifax, Province House's south garden and its Hollis Street parking lot have remained relatively undisturbed since the founding of the city. "It takes a lot longer, of course, to do an exterior digging — because every bit of ground you remove in an excavator bucket or whatever, has to be gone through at least a cursory glance," said Ron Jeppesen who has overseen roughly a dozen renovations and restorations at Province House.

    German prosecutors want to extradite former Catalan leader

    German prosecutors said on Tuesday they were preparing an application to extradite former Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont to Spain on charges linked to his role in the campaign for the region's independence. The higher regional court of the northern state of Schleswig-Holstein is yet to decide on the extradition but said on Tuesday it did not see any reason to put him in custody during the procedure. Catalonia held a secession referendum on Oct. 1 and then declared independence but Madrid has blocked any attempts at independence in the courts, citing Spain's constitution which says Spain is indivisible.

    Renfrew parents demand return of minimum wage exemption for people with disabilities

    A group of parents in Renfrew, Ont., want provincial politicians to save their children's jobs by restoring an exemption in Ontario labour law that had allowed them to work for less than minimum wage. The exemption enabled people with intellectual disabilities to be employed in sheltered workshops to do irregular work with community agencies for a few dollars an hour. The Liberals' Fairer Workplaces, Better Jobs Act eliminated the exemption, and also increased Ontario's minimum wage.

Dave Loten, the chief operating officer for PMV Canada, says the city is too quick to enforce demolition orders on older properties. In 2016 the company purchased 47 properties as a group, mostly in the old north end and the Waterloo Village area, after the former owner, Phillip Huggard Properties Ltd., was placed in bankruptcy.

    Former MGM Holdings Inc Chief Executive Officer Gary Barber, who was ousted earlier this year, is speaking to investment banks about financing an offer to acquire the privately held U.S. movie studio, five people familiar with the matter said on Monday. MGM could be worth more than $5 billion including debt, and it is far from certain that Barber can raise the funds for a bid, the sources said. Barber owns about 9 percent of MGM through stock options after serving as its CEO between 2010 and 2018, according to the sources.
