The Missouri Supreme Court denied a request by U.S. Senate candidate Mark McCloskey and his wife to give free legal advice to a conservative activist group as a condition of their professional probation, but McCloskey said Thursday he'll try to find another right-wing organization to represent. Mark and Patricia McCloskey of St. Louis were placed on probation as lawyers in February. The decision stemmed from their actions in June 2020 when they raised guns at racial injustice protesters who vent
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate confirmed Bridget Brink late Wednesday as U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, filling the post as officials plan to return American diplomats to Kyiv during the nation's continuing battle against the Russian invasion. The veteran foreign service officer, who has spent most of her career in the shadow of the former Soviet Union, was nominated to the position last month by President Joe Biden.

Overall, only about 2 in 10 adults say the U.S. is heading in the right direction or the economy is good, bot

Here is some of the political reaction: "He was a fine leader. He worked so hard for this province, uniting us Conservatives together back in 2016 and his heart was in this province. And now he's gone. He's going to do wonderful things with his life and his career, but it's a loss to our party." — Jan

Much of the discussion about Canada's real estate market has been dominated by the meteoric rise in the cost of housing. But what's often missing from that conversation is the parallel increase in what Canadians pay in real estate commissions nearly every time a home is bought or sold. For example, a brokerage representing a buyer in 2005 in the Greater Toronto Area would have earned a commission of about $8,795 on the average single-family home — while in December 2021, the buyer's brokerage wo

For the first time in a decade, Whitehorse has a new draft official community plan and its main focus is how Whitehorse officials will address the ongoing housing crunch in city boundaries. "Housing certainly is probably the number one issue in our community," said Mike Gau, the city's director of development services. "I don't think it's any coincidence that … the highlights ... are all directly related to housing." The 112-page draft plan sets out the city's priorities for land use planning an
