BRUSSELS (AP) — The European Union on Thursday stepped up its dispute with China as it took an economic spat over exports from member state Lithuania to the world trade's governing body and accused Beijing of seeking to undermine the 27-nation bloc's single market. EU Trade Commissioner Valdis Dombrovskis insisted the European Union was owed more respect and said Beijing should stop coercing member states with heavy-handed trade tactics like blocking imports based on political grounds. “Our rela
MONTREAL — The organizer of a controversial Sunwing party flight to Mexico says his group was unfairly abandoned by the airline. James William Awad told reporters at a new conference today that Sunwing, along with Air Canada and Air Transat, should be "ashamed" of themselves for refusing to fly his group back to Canada based on videos of the flight that circulated on social media.

ROME (AP) — Lawmakers and regional representatives failed for a fourth day Thursday to find consensus on a new Italian president, even after the threshold for victory passed to a simple majority for the first time. The center-right abstained outright in the voting, a tactic to maintain the bloc’s unity that drew swift rebukes from other party leaders because it meant the quorum wasn't reached.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden on Wednesday secured the blessing of several business leaders on his economic agenda that has stalled in the Senate, part of an effort to restart some momentum for the nearly $2 trillion in spending and tax increases that he's proposed. Biden met at the White House with top executives from General Motors, Ford, Microsoft, Etsy, Salesforce and other companies. The president emphasized the benefits from spending more on climate issues, manufacturing and child
(Reuters) -Northrop Grumman Corp missed fourth-quarter revenue estimates on Thursday as labor shortages and supply chain snarls hampered its ability to deliver components for defense products, including Lockheed Martin's F-35 jets. The drop was driven by a 25% decline in revenue from its aeronautics unit that makes the center fuselage for fighter jets and also reflected how the pandemic has hobbled manufacturers by disrupting supply chains. Northrop's shares fell 1.7% before the bell as its 2022 forecast suggested the supply chain pressure was likely to continue.
On Jan. 15, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s federal government implemented a vaccine mandate that will require unvaccinated Canadian truck drivers undergo testing and quarantine upon entry into Canada. Unvaccinated Canadian truck drivers are also not permitted to enter the United States. The U.S. implemented its own policy on Jan. 22, barring all unvaccinated individuals travelling for essential or non-essential purposes from entering the country. Industry groups had warned the government that a vaccine requirement for truck drivers would create added pressure on an already-strained supply chain system. Backlash to the policy has emerged this week, as truckers and protesters from across the country head to Ottawa for a rally against the vaccine mandate. On this episode of Editor's Edition, Alicja Siekierska and the Public Policy Forum's Sean Speer dig into the trucker vaccine mandate policy, whether the Trudeau government should have moved forward with the policy, and the backlash that has emerged. Speer says that while Trudeau has made mistakes in how he has spoken about the unvaccinated, he argues that the government needs to ‘hold the line’ on the policy. “At its core, the government’s position on these issues is right,” Speer said.
