September 7, 2018 10:09 PM NHLers rate Tavares deal from multiple angles

“I was hoping he would sign with us,” said Kane, “but I like the fact a big-time free agent left and did something you don’t see too much in the NHL. I think it sets a tone, sets a precedent for players. I like the fact he had the courage to make that move.” It’s fair to say that what other NHLers thought of Tavares’ decision was based, at least a bit, on geography 7

As airport time killers, cocktails will never lose their most-favoured status. But the race for novel concessions inside the terminal is becoming more, well, playful.

Nadal won in 2005, 2008 and most recently in 2013, when he beat Canada’s Milos Raonic 6-2, 6-2, in Montreal. However, his strongest memory of playing in Canada was last year’s third round, when he was upset by Denis Shapovalov, a wild-card 17

June 19, 2018 4:07 PM Trudeau has billions of reasons to dig in against Trump on dairy

Justin Trudeau’s defence of Canadian dairy tariffs isn’t just about farmers and politics — it’s about debt, too. The prime minister squared off with U.S. President Donald Trump this month over Canada’s “supply management” system, which sets quotas for dairy, eggs and poultry and charges high tariffs above that threshold. Despite a U.S. surplus on dairy 22
