François Legault wants Ottawa to ‘settle’ with SNC-Lavalin so firm avoids trial


Quebec Premier François Legault says he wants the federal government to settle with engineering firm SNC-Lavalin “as soon as possible” in order to protect jobs and the company’s corporate headquarters in Montreal.

“I want to do all we can do to protect this headquarters and protect the thousands of good, well-paying jobs we have at SNC-Lavalin.” And the longer its legal troubles drag on, the greater the chance it could fall prey to another company, he said.

Germany narrowly avoids recession


US tariffs on EU car exports, which US President Donald Trump has threatened, could have a major impact on Germany, Mr Allen said, but even if these are avoided the slowdown in the global economy means Germany is still only expected to grow by about 1% this year, compared with about 1.5% in 2018.

It is certainly possible that subsequent revisions to these figures will take the fourth quarter figure below zero and Germany into recession as the term is often defined.

Andrew McCarthy: McCabe and ‘60 Minutes’ avoid discussing WHY Russia factored in Comey’s firing

Tuesday 12:40 GMT

Andrew McCabe is a good witness and he made a favorable impression, at least on me, in his '60 Minutes' interview with Scott Pelley.

ANDREW MCCARTHY: MCCABE, ROSENSTEIN AND THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT THE 25TH AMENDMENT COUP ATTEMPT. The viewer was thus left to conclude, from McCabe’s other comments, that Trump must have fired the FBI director because he was fearful of the Bureau’s investigation of Russia’s interference in the election; because he was concerned that the FBI would find that Russia intended to benefit Trump and would therefore deduce that Trump was complicit.

MSNBC's avoidance of Jussie Smollett story during primetime 'a politically biased journalistic choice,’ expert says

Today 14:30 GMT

News of “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett being accused of orchestrating a fake hate crime has dominated the news cycle the past 48 hours, with everyone from President Trump to some 2020 Democratic candidates to your local barista chiming in – but anyone who relies on MSNBC primetime for their news might not know it even happened.

The hosts of MSNBC’s primetime lineup have oddly avoided the ongoing scandal surrounding Smollett, staying stone silent both Wednesday and Thursday nights about a story that has commanded the attention of the nation.

Opinion: Do EU and UK face Brexit — or the Last Judgment?

Today 18:09 GMT

But, after three ceaseless years of Brexit stories from media outlets in Germany and elsewhere, you might get the impression that the issue is less about a country's leaving the EU than it is about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse fixing to gallop across the United Kingdom.

One might think so judging by the number of reports that predict that the United Kingdom will not only face medical shortages, but also economic hardship, the destruction of London, famine, isolation and a devastating civil war.
