  • Why Trudeau Can't Say Yes to a Coalition With Mulcair

    Liberal leader Justin Trudeau is right to say no to any coalition talks with the NDP. It's a con game by the NDP and one that would make voters punish the Liberals.

  • ITG shares plunge on likely dark pool settlement with regulators

    Shares of brokerage Investment Technology Group were down more than 20 percent on Thursday after the company said it had set aside $20.3 million for a probable settlement with regulators related to how it ran its "dark pool." ITG disclosed late on Wednesday that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission was investigating the lack of disclosure by the firm to its clients that a subsidiary of the agency broker was trading against client orders within ITG's private stock trading venue, or "dark pool." The issue involved a trial market making program the ITG subsidiary, AlterNet, ran between 2010 and mid-2011. ITG also said the employee who headed the trial program used customer information from within ITG's dark pool, as well as information from ITG clients that used the firm's algorithms to execute trades on other trading platforms, which should not have been available.

  • Tokyo Electric execs to be charged over Fukushima nuclear disaster

    By Kentaro Hamada and Osamu Tsukimori TOKYO (Reuters) - A Japanese civilian judiciary panel on Friday forced prosecutors to indict three former Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) executives for failing to take measures to prevent the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster. The decision is unlikely to lead to a conviction of the former executives, after prosecutors twice said they would not bring charges, but means they will be summoned to appear in court to give evidence. Tokyo prosecutors in January rejected the panel's judgment that the three should be charged, citing insufficient evidence.

  • Giant, hungry snails are eating the stucco off houses in Florida

    Florida plant detectives are on the trail of a slippery foe, an invasive African land snail that is wily, potentially infectious, and can grow as big as a tennis shoe. In the four years since Giant African Snails were discovered in Miami, they have slowly but surely spread to new territory, alarming residents in the southern suburbs and the neighboring county of Broward. Since 2011, Florida has spent $10.8 million on the Giant African Snail eradication program, according to state agriculture department spokesman Mark Fagan. "The fact is they're a human- and animal-health threat, and they're a threat to Florida's agriculture," said Fagan.
