Judge to decide fate of Vandalia Avenue in Northside
TORONTO — When Jenny Dickson goes grocery shopping, they only buy off-brand foods or items on sale for fear of overestimating how much money they have available in their bank account. “This anxiety around doing math can get so intense that I have a panic attack in the middle of the grocery store or just straight up dissociate,” said Dickson, a 28-year-old librarian in Deep River, Ont., who uses they/them pronouns. Dickson used to live on their own, but moved back in with their parents five years
U.S. consumer confidence ebbed slightly in January, with more consumers planning to purchase homes, automobiles and other big- ticket items even as they grew less optimistic about business and labor market conditions in the short term. Labor market views softened a bit, likely reflecting the disruptions on businesses caused by the winter wave of COVID-19, fueled by the Omicron variant. "While consumer confidence dipped this month, consumers generally have faith in the strength of this recovery," said Robert Frick, corporate economist with Navy Federal Credit Union in Vienna, Virginia.

Vaccine mandates for truckers have raised transportation costs — but haven't impacted the shipment of goods to stores, the head of one of Canada's largest grocery chains says. Instead, Metro president and CEO Eric La Flèche said Tuesday the biggest impact on Canada's food industry supply chain has been worker absenteeism due to COVID-19 protocols. The labour shortage caused by quarantined workers has impacted the entire supply chain — including retail stores, distribution centres and suppliers a
Today, the results of the 19th annual Best New Product Awards (BNPA) were released together with new research by BrandSpark International on Canadians' shopping habits for consumer products.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, governments in Canada are trying new strategies to increase vaccinations. On Jan. 15, the federal government implemented a policy requiring that truck drivers entering into Canada be fully vaccinated. Unvaccinated foreign truckers can no longer enter Canada, while unvaccinated Canadian drivers will have to test and quarantine upon entry into the country. 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. In Quebec, Premier Francois Legault is looking at a so-called "vax tax." Legault said he plans on tabling a bill in early February that would force individuals who refuse to get vaccinated to pay a “health contribution", adding that unvaccinated Quebeckers are a significant burden on the province’s healthcare system. On this episode of Editor's Edition, Alicja Siekierska and the Public Policy Forum's Sean Speer dig into the new and proposed vaccination policies, and the response to these approaches. They also take a look at Ontario’s reopening plan and the latest report from the Parliamentary Budget Officer.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Workers at a West Virginia franchise of a regional fast-food restaurant on Tuesday rejected efforts to form a union that would have been the first its kind in West Virginia. The effort was part of a larger national trend of organizing among retail and food service workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. A group of employees watched National Labor Relations Board officials count votes over Zoom Tuesday at the United Food & Commercial Workers Local 400 office in Charleston.
High valuations and one of the strongest recoveries from a bear market in history have left equities vulnerable to a correction but the recent fall is not indicative that markets have reached "danger zone" levels yet, Goldman Sachs said in a note. "While it has not reached danger zone levels that typically precede a bear market (a fall of at least 20%), it has reached levels which have typically been consistent with corrections and relatively low returns over the next one and five years," the U.S. investment bank said on Wednesday. Goldman Sachs said markets are in a correction phase within a bull market cycle and current levels signify relatively low returns over the next one to five years.

HONG KONG (Reuters) -China Evergrande Group shares slumped on Thursday after the developer's thinly detailed roadmap for restructuring left investors dissatisfied and its indebted peers also fell on concerns higher interest rates would raise financing costs. Regulatory curbs on borrowing have driven China's property sector into crisis, highlighted by Evergrande, the world's most indebted property firm. The contagion has engulfed other Chinese developers, roiled global financial markets in the past year and contributed to a slump in China's property market, which accounts for a quarter of its economy.

DENVER (AP) — The sight can be jarring during extreme drought: snowmaking guns lined up on a mountainside, blasting precious crystal flakes on a ski run while the rest of the land goes thirsty. Snowpack in the U.S. West has decreased by about 20% in the last century, making man-made snow more vital each year to opening ski resorts and fueling ski town economies as they head into an uncertain future. As the effects of drought and climate change increasingly hit home, the ski industry has invested

Tesla's most important products this year and next will not be cars, CEO Elon Musk said on Wednesday, but software that drives them autonomously and a humanoid robot the company expects to help out in the factory. Tesla and other auto technology companies have missed their targets for self-driving software for years. "I love the fact that they're pushing the envelope, but I think they are too aggressive," said Roth Capital Partners analyst Craig Irwin.
