The federal government is reducing the small business tax rate from 10.5 per cent to 9 per cent, to be phased in over two years, as it begins to unveil changes to its contentious tax reform proposal.

The Weinstein Company secured a financial lifeline — and a potential new owner — on Monday from Colony Capital, as the embattled studio reels from the growing scandals surrounding its co-founder, Harvey Weinstein.
In a short statement, the Weinstein Company said that it had a preliminary agreement from Colony for an immediate cash infusion, though the amount was not disclosed.

The government's response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico — and how Americans perceive it — perfectly illustrates how President Trump puts his administration on the defense by failing to tame his tweets.
Indeed, former FEMA director James Lee Witt told me he’d give the Trump administration an A-plus for how it’s responding to all the hurricane aftermath – including in Puerto Rico. “They’ve maxed out probably how many people they could put there,” said Witt, a Democrat who ran the agency under President Clinton.

As NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) negotiations continue, experts agree that the U.S. proposals put forth on the North American auto industry pose significant difficulties for Canada and Mexico.
O’Toole called the content requirements “virtually unacceptable as is,” but he believes it’s in the best interest of Canadian and American industries to work towards a middle ground before the end-of-year negotiation deadline.
One positive that comes out of hearing such horrific stories from Hollywood and beyond is that the more people talk, the less it's becoming acceptable.
The Weinstein case has shone the light on the appalling practices in Hollywood, but it is of course a very depressing reflection of what women from all walks of life, from all corners of the globe, have to experience on a daily basis. A few years ago a married former colleague of mine began sending me messages containing explicit details of his sexual desires.

Covered California, the state’s Obamacare exchange, calculated in January that the reduction in net, or after-subsidy, premiums in gold, platinum and bronze plans resulting from the higher subsidies would lead to an enrollment increase of 20,000 people, or 1.4% in subsidized plans.
