He was 85. His law partner Doug Steinhardt and current New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy confirmed Florio died in statements on Monday. “Governor Florio was a fighter who never backed down.

One of the worst storms Canada has ever faced left more than one-third of customers in the Atlantic province of Nova Scotia without power, swept homes into the sea and left one person dead.

TORONTO — The Ontario government is refusing to publicly divulge its progress in enrolling children in core autism therapies, after the last update showed it was far off its own target. Merrilee Fullerton, the minister of children, community and social services, has said the government would get 8,000 kids into core clinical services by the end of the fall, but as of last month that number was only about 888.

The province of Ontario made more than a half a billion dollars from the cannabis industry in the last fiscal year, according to public accounts released by the government on Friday. But that $520 million is coming at least partially at the expense of struggling local retailers, according to Michael Armstrong, a business professor at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ont. "About 56 cents of every dollar you spend at a cannabis store goes to the businesses, the retailers and producers," Armstro
Post-tropical storm Fiona isn't done yet — it's tracking away from the island and heading toward Labrador before subsiding later on Sunday. Environment Canada meteorologist Melissa Field said the south coast of Labrador saw wind gusts up to 90 km/h overnight Saturday and approximately 10 millimetres of rain.
