Tight race between Liberals and Tories as New Brunswick goes to the polls

Tight race between Liberals and Tories as New Brunswick goes to the pollsNew Brunswick voters go to the polls today in a provincial election that appears to be a tight race between the incumbent Liberals and the Progressive Conservatives. Liberal Leader Brian Gallant is looking to become the first New Brunswick premier to win a second term since 2003. The two front-runners spent Sunday on one final push to energize supporters and warned of the possibility of vote splitting, as the result of support for third parties.


Ottawa area residents take stock of tornado rubble as Ford tours the ruins

Ottawa area residents take stock of tornado rubble as Ford tours the ruinsWord of Friday's tornado reached Laurel Wingrove and Alex Carlson at a Toronto wedding, and by Sunday morning they completed the grim pilgrimage back to the apartment they've called home for four months. On the Ottawa side, 51 homes were destroyed or severely damaged, and this neighbourhood saw the "brunt of the damage," said Mayor Jim Watson. The national weather agency said a powerful twister — with winds that reached 265 kilometres per hour — ripped through Dunrobin, about 35 kilometres west of the downtown area, before moving on to Gatineau.


Victims' families to speak today at Wettlaufer public inquiry

Victims' families to speak today at Wettlaufer public inquiryFamilies of victims and a woman who was almost killed by an Ontario nurse will speak for the first time today in St. Thomas, Ont., at a public inquiry into the serial-killing case. Elizabeth Wettlaufer is serving a life sentence after confessing to killing eight patients with insulin overdoses and attempting to kill four others at long-term care facilities and private homes in Ontario for over about a decade. The closing submissions will provide insight into the impact the crimes had on the victims' families, highlight the failings that allowed it to occur and include recommendations to prevent similar crimes from happening.


Cities make power play for new fiscal order with eye to 2019 federal election

Cities make power play for new fiscal order with eye to 2019 federal electionCanada's cities believe they will finally land easier and direct access to federal dollars in next year's budget, or at least wrest a platform pledge from parties in the 2019 election. A pre-budget submission from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities asks the Liberals to end the buffet of application-based programs, and instead put the money into predetermined, annual payment programs. If Finance Minister Bill Morneau doesn't answer the request in his 2019 budget, the federation is vowing to make their financial concerns an election issue and says it has willing ears from opposition parties.
