For unexpected needs, such as medical expenses, he has had to borrow money from relatives. Somehow, the 44-year-old muddled through life, sustained by his love of teaching high school Arabic and the respect his job earned him in the community.

Global supply chain bottlenecks are not easing as quickly as expected, meaning inflation in Canada and among IMF members will probably take a little longer to come down, the governor of the Bank of Canada said on Thursday. Those issues will weigh on Canada's near-term economic recovery, meaning it is reasonable to expect that an expected rebound will not be as fast as the central bank forecast in July, Tiff Macklem told reporters after attending International Monetary Fund meetings in Washington.
