  • Tom Mulcair says he will propose $15 federal minimum wage

    NDP Leader Tom Mulcair says he will put the idea of a $15 an hour minimum wage to a vote in Parliament when it resumes next week.

    "Household debt in Canada is skyrocketing right now, families are having more and more trouble getting by. The good middle class jobs that people used to be able to rely on just aren't there any more," Mulcair said, speaking in Vancouver on Saturday.

    Ministers jockey for surplus bucks as Commons returns

    Like a fresh-baked pie on the window sill, the sweet smell of a surplus has mouths watering -- but which ministers will get a piece in this critical pre-election period, and how will it trickle down to Canadians?

    All the decisions will be evaluated through the lens of the 2015 election, which looms large over what is likely the last fall
    sitting before the writ is dropped.
