  • Honeymoon is over for penniless Greek couple in NYC, begging after bank cards were declined

    Newlyweds Valasia Limnioti and Konstantinos Patronis' long-planned "dream trip" to the U.S. ended in New York City, where their three-week honeymoon quickly turned into a nightmare: Their Greek-issued credit and debit cards were suddenly declined and they were left penniless. The couple skipped a few meals before spending their last dollars on dinner at McDonald's. Strangers from two Greek Orthodox churches in the city's Queens borough came to the rescue, giving them survival cash until their flight home to Greece on Friday. "Everything was all right — then 'boom!' in New York," Limnioti said.

  • Home value killers: Problems that could make your property near worthless

     A potential nightmare example emerged last week with an Antigonish, Nova Scotia house that saw its assessed value drop to $1 from $365,000 after the owners found Mi’kmaq artifacts on the property and reported them. If the goal was to reduce property taxes, it was shrewd. Real estate laws in Canada can be murky on this stuff, as sellers are only required to disclose material defects to the property, such as a crack in the foundation. And while nobody expects to find a burial site when they start digging out the basement, there are value killers you can watch out for.

  • No doubt aboot it: Canada is better than America in at least 7 ways

    It is the place where Americans threaten to move when things aren't going well at home (this is, perhaps surprisingly, true of both liberals and conservatives in America).

  • Warning of 2016 consequences, Hispanic leaders call on Republicans to condemn Donald Trump

    Hispanic leaders are warning of harm to Republican White House hopes unless the party's presidential contenders do more to condemn Donald Trump, a businessman turned presidential candidate who's refusing to apologize for calling Mexican immigrants rapists and drug dealers. Trump's comments, delivered in his announcement speech last month, have haunted the party for much of the last two weeks and dominated Spanish-language media. It's bad timing for a Republican Party that has invested significantly in Hispanic outreach in recent years, given the surging influence of the minority vote.

  • Calgary gives up on Connect card, wants $5M back

The saga began in 2010 when a Spanish company called Telvent, now owned by Schneider Electric, was chosen to develop the system through a bidding process.
