Margins in the domestic mortgage business “were challenged” and the market was “super competitive” last year, McKay said.

BERLIN - A once-prominent figure in the far-right Alternative for Germany has left the party after a falling-out and has reportedly founded a new group.

Canadian stocks rose on the final trading day of the year but it wasn’t enough to prevent them from posting their worst annual performance since 2008. The S&P/TSX Composite Index gained 0.7 per cent to 14,322.86 on thin New Year’s Eve volume after U.S. President Donald Trump reported “big progress” in trade talks with China. The benchmark lost 5.8 per cent in December 52

“You have five power plays, you’ve got to get at least one or two, and especially on home ice,” said Calgary centre Sean Monahan. “It isn’t as sharp as it needs to be.” The Canucks made it 2-2 at 11:37 of the second when rookie sensation Elias Pettersson broke down the right side and whipped a 40-foot wrist shot past Rittich. “We trust each other, trust 28

December 29, 2018 12:50 AM Auston Matthews, Mike Bossy and the joy of flex

The day Matthews began getting free sticks as a top prospect “was a big sigh of relief for them, for sure.” Matthews now uses a Bauer model that’s far lighter and whippier than anything available in Bossy’s era. “My go-to shot back then was the snap shot,” Bossy said. “Whereas today it looks like they’re using a hybrid of what I’d call an old-time wrister 30

December 28, 2018 6:04 PM Humboldt Broncos coach steps down during first season after tragic bus crash

HUMBOLDT, SASK.—Nathan Oystrick has stepped down as head coach and general manager of the Humboldt Broncos.

December 27, 2018 10:16 PM What a difference a year made for Tiger Woods

So far only one Canadian has qualified to be in the Masters field. That’d be Mike Weir, the 2003 winner of the green jacket. But that’s hardly a bellwether for the health of Canadian golf. At October’s Safeway Open, the first tournament of what’s essentially the PGA Tour season that will conclude in 2019, there were eight Canadians in the field — a record 32

December 20, 2018 5:10 PM Matthews, Marner succeed as role players with The Nutcracker

Both Mitch Marner and Auston Matthews were a little awestruck, a little nervous, and definitely enthused after their cameo performance in the The Nutcracker on Wednesday night. “It was nerve-wracking, going out there just before,” Matthews said at the Leafs’ morning skate Thursday, with his performance with Marner becoming the talk of the dressing room. “But you go out there 26
