Angus Reid Institute: 75% of Canadians support a referendum

The Liberal Party’s refusal to commit to holding a referendum is at odds with the desires of most Canadians. Asked whether they would prefer to keep the current FPTP system or change to a different system, more than one-in-five Canadians (21%) say they are undecided on the question. Similarly, fully two-thirds (66%) say changing the way the country votes is a “low priority”. Somewhat lost amid the debate over the committee’s recommendations on proportionality and holding a referendum are some of the committee’s other recommendations – specifically on mandatory voting and lowering the voting age to 16. The committee recommended against both considerations, though it did recommend creating a framework that would allow people to begin registering with the National Register of Electors up to two years before reaching age 18.

Toronto: Auditor General slams Wynne government; says sketchy cap and trade scheme will cost $2B, totally fail to hit emission targets

Ontario Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk slammed the Liberal government in her new annual report released Wednesday. Lysyk reveals that the province's expensive cap and trade program, due to take effect on January 1st, 2017, is projected to make only one-fifth of its targeted greenhouse gas reductions in Ontario. The remainder, says Lysyk, are expected to happen in California and Quebec, as Ontario companies purchase carbon-emission permits from firms in that state and province that have already gone green. ~ Mike Crawley CBC

Speculation is that one of the animals was wounded by the other animal's antlers, and perhaps died as their antlers were caught together, dragging the rival down with it.

Donald Trump wins the Presidency
in stunning upset over Clinton

When the state of Pennsylvania was called for Trump it put him over the 270 electoral vote threshold and he travelled to his campaign headquarters to speak to his supporters. Trump announced that he had received a concession call from Hillary Clinton. He called for national unity and said he would be President of all Americans. Commentators said his remarks were "almost lyrical", filled with grace and humility, in a moment of triumph.
