Nova Scotia to launch monthly allowance for people living in shelters

Nova Scotia to launch monthly allowance for people living in sheltersNova Scotians living in homeless shelters and transition houses will begin receiving a monthly allowance in October — part of an $11 million government investment for people living in poverty. The Department of Community Services announced Thursday the province will provide about $100 a month to people living in poverty to help them buy things like personal hygiene items and other essentials. "We want all Nova Scotians to have the dignity, self-esteem and self-confidence they need to move their lives forward," said Kelly Regan, Minister of Community Services, in a press release.


Trump tariffs would cause vehicle prices to soar, wipe out jobs: report

Trump tariffs would cause vehicle prices to soar, wipe out jobs: reportThe average price of imported vehicles sold in the United States could jump by thousands of dollars if the Trump administration imposes tariffs under a worst-case scenario provided by the Center for Automotive Research. The Michigan-based think-tank estimates U.S. consumers would see the average price of new imports rise by US$6,875, if a 25 per cent tariff is applied, or up to US$2,750 if a 10 per cent tariff is imposed to imports from all countries. The impact on American consumers would be substantially less if Canada and Mexico — partners with the United States under the North American Free Trade Agreement — are exempted.
