While skepticism is warranted based on how often politicians break election promises, make no mistake. The three major national party leaders are running on substantially different platforms. Here’s where they stand on 13 key issues. Federal budget: Harper promises a balanced budget plus a small surplus for 2015-2016 and continued small surpluses in following

  • Canada's refugees: Where they come from by the numbers

    Refugees from nearly every country have come to Canada over the years. And often the countries they came from reflect the history of international crises, like Syria and Iraq today or Chile and Bangladesh in the 1970s and Sri Lanka and Haiti more recently. Of that number, an average of about 11,000 were refugees who came to Canada and successfully claimed refugee status and 4,000 were their dependants. Seven thousand refugees received government assistance to resettle in Canada, and 4,000 were privately sponsored.

  • 2 men found guilty of murder in death of border agent that exposed Fast and Furious operation

    Two men were convicted of murder Thursday in the killing of a Border Patrol agent whose death brought to light the bungled federal gun-tracking operation known as Fast and Furious. The jury took only three and a half hours to find Jesus Leonel Sanchez-Meza and Ivan Soto-Barraza guilty of all counts in the killing of Brian Terry, 40. The 2010 killing exposed the Fast and Furious operation in which agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives allowed criminals to buy guns with the intention of tracking the weapons.
