Cal Cunningham, the Democratic attorney and Iraq War veteran challenging North Carolina GOP Sen. Thom Tillis, broke his no-tax-increase pledge and voted for a $1 billion tax increase when he was in the state legislature in 2001.

Back then Cunningham said he agonized over the decision but defended his support for raising sales taxes and taxes on the state’s highest earners by calling it “the right thing to do.”

“We asked those who have benefited from the work of some very savvy tax lawyers to pay their fair share,” he told a local newspaper at the time. 

“The issue for me is one of fairness,” he said. “. . ...

Bombardier plans to move its corporate offices to Dorval by early 2021

Article content continued

Jessica McDonald, a company spokeswoman, confirmed the news to the Gazette on Friday.

The move adds to a dramatic three-year reshaping of Bombardier, begun under former CEO Alain Bellemare, that has seen the once-sprawling Quebec industrial icon narrow its focus solely to business jets — with such transactions as the sale of the commercial aviation program formerly known as the C Series to European planemaker Airbus SA.

On Friday, France’s Alstom SA secured conditional clearance from the European Commission for the proposed acquisition of the Bombardier Transportation rail business, which is based in Berlin. Closing is still expected in the first half of 2021, Bombardier said.

Bombardier’s future headquarters at 400 Côte-Vertu Blvd. W...

Corbella: Trudeau’s WE scandal testimony leaves him battered and bruised


Article content continued

The committee heard Tuesday from the Kielburgers that the Trudeau family received even more money from WE than previously revealed. Margaret Trudeau had $167,944 of expenses paid for her 28 events. Alexandre Trudeau submitted $19,576 in expenses for eight events, and the PM’s wife had $25,326 in expenses paid to her for seven WE events, or an average of $3,618 per event.

In total, the Trudeau family received more than $508,000 in speaking fees and expenses paid to them by the WE Charity or one of its more than one dozen Canadian affiliated entities, which includes the ME to WE social enterprise — the for-profit arm of the Kielburgers’ initiatives.

Could America Split Up?

Could America Split Up?

All week I’ve been haunted by a brief few seconds of video posted on Twitter late Sunday night by a student journalist in Eugene, Oregon. Two men face off at a protest — the one standing on the left is demonstrating for Black Lives Matter; the one on the right, sitting in a pickup truck, is a counter-protester. Each is pointing a handgun at the other’s face at point blank range.

The Quebec environment department and the city of Montreal announced on Friday that they have shut down Jean-Doré Beach until at least Sunday, after water tests this week found a high level of bacterial contamination.

The tests, carried out on Wednesday, found the water quality did not meet ministry norms. A message on the Parc Jean-Drapeau website informs users that they are working to have the beach reopen at 10 a.m. on Sunday.

King penguin chick hatches at Calgary Zoo after overcoming ‘incredible obstacle’


Article content

The Calgary Zoo is welcoming a new king penguin chick to its Penguin Plunge after the wee seabird overcame an “incredible obstacle” to hatch.

Just as the chick’s two-month incubation period was coming to an end, its mother Grace moved away from the egg causing it to roll down the beach and hit rocks that cracked the shell. Zoo staff had to act quickly and rushed the egg to a specialized incubation room to repair the damage.

The “significantly cracked shell” was carefully patched together but, still, the chick would need to fight against many odds to hatch. Over several days it was closely monitored before it finally tried to break through the shell.

The Calgary Zoo is welcoming a new king penguin chick to its Penguin Plunge. The chick faced significant obstacles but with the help of the zoo's staff it hatched on July 18.

Trump Is Right: All-Mail Voting Poses Grave Dangers

(James Foster/Chicago Sun-Times via AP)

Many people misinterpreted President Trump’s tweet Thursday morning about a possible delay in the Nov. 3 election as a threat by him to postpone the election. But that’s not what his tweet said — and in any event, no president has the power to delay Election Day

Macpherson: New bouts of indig-nationalism over flags

Article content continued

Usually, indig-nationalism is directed at anglos. On one recent occasion, however, nationalists turned on … other nationalists.

Some were doubly infuriated in June by this year’s televised Fête nationale holiday concert. Not only did one performer wear a sticker against the anti-hijab Bill 21, no Quebec flags were visible.

The “Natfest” concert organizers apologized for the absence of the fleurdelisé, explaining that it was an oversight resulting from the exceptional circumstances of the pandemic.

No one thought to put flags on stage because usually, there are none. Instead, small flags are handed out to spectators. This year, however, there was no live audience.

It’s a plausible explanation...

‘Canary in the coal mine’: Calgary-shot Wynonna Earp among first TV series to resume production after COVID-19

Article content continued

Still, Wynonna Earp is among the first wave of TV series to restart production in North America and certainly the first out of the gate in Alberta since the pandemic took hold.

“We are extremely fortunate in that we are back in production, but we also serve as a canary in a coal mine for everyone else,” Andras says. “In terms of challenges, they are both off-screen and on-screen challenges. Off-screen, the reality is we have on any given day between 100 and 300 crew members, sometimes working in enclosed spaces. It’s an intimate environment. It’s very much like a construction site with people handling equipment and eating together and breathing together and collaborating. On-screen, of course, we are an R-rated, 10 p.m. cable show with a supernatural element...
