Budget 2024: Here’s what Canadians want from Ottawa - National | Globalnews.ca



Budget 2024: Here’s what Canadians want from Ottawa - National

Canadians are mostly looking for help paying their bills in the 2024 federal budget, not investments in the military or clean energy transitions, according to polling released Friday.

The Ipsos poll conducted exclusively for Global News surveyed 1,000 Canadians between March 15 and 18 about what their top three priorities were for the upcoming federal budget, set to be tabled by Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland on April 16.

The cumulative top priority for those polled was help with the rising cost of living (44 per cent).

Women (53 per cent) more so than men (36 per cent) rated cost-of-living support as a priority. Half of gen X respondents (those born between 1965 and 1980) said they were looking for pocketbook help in the budget, the highest proportion of any generation.

“Pocketbook issues dominate the list of the things that Canadians want to see addressed in the budget,” Sean Simpson, senior vice-president at Ipsos Global Affairs, tells Global News.

He says he sees a clear focus among voters on taxes, affordability and other household finances in the polling.

“All those issues, in some way, shape or form, are tied to the amount of money that Canadians have that seems to be draining from their wallet at record speeds these days,” Simpson says.

The other budget line item garnering significant interest is investments in health care, with 38 per cent of respondents ranking it as a priority.

But when asked about a hypothetical hike of one per cent in the GST to fund services like pharmacare – the framework for which the Liberals have introduced as part of their supply-and-confidence deal with the NDP – only five per cent of those surveyed said they saw it as a priority.

Instead, more Canadians are signalling that they’re hoping for a reduced tax burden from Ottawa.

One in three respondents said they’d like to see a cut to their personal tax rates included in the 2024 budget, while one in five said they want the Liberals to freeze the federal carbon price, which rose on April 1. The planned increase spurred countrywide protests that halted traffic on major Canadian roadways.

Some 19 per cent said they wanted to see the Liberals reduce their overall spending, while 18 per cent signalled reducing the federal deficit should be a priority for Ottawa this spring.

But like Canadians, the federal government is finding it has less cash on hand to meet its own rising costs, including servicing debt under the weight of higher interest rates. The parliamentary budget officer said in a report last month that the slowing economy and rising debt costs are leaving Ottawa with little fiscal wiggle room heading into the 2024 budget.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Liberal MPs have been on a cross-country tour teeing up line items in the budget related to Canada’s housing market, affordability and homebuilding efforts.

Some 15 per cent of respondents to the Ipsos poll said they’d like to see measures that will cool the housing market in the federal budget, while 12 per cent indicated that funding to build new homes was a priority.

Only five per cent of respondents said an increase in the GST rebate for homebuyers was a priority, though that rose to 10 per cent of gen Z respondents (born between 1997 and 2005).

Other priorities, such as increasing defence spending and accelerating the transition to clean energy, ranked lower on Canadians’ lists:

  • Investing in Canada’s ​Armed Forces and defence​ (11 per cent)
  • To support the transition to greener energy​ (10 per cent)
  • Incentives to lower their carbon footprint​ (nine per cent)
  • Help businesses struggling with the pandemic impact (eight per cent)
  • Freeze hiring in the federal public service (six per cent)

These are some of the findings of an Ipsos poll conducted between March 15 and 18, 2024, on behalf of Global News. For this survey, a sample of 1,000 Canadians aged 18-plus was interviewed. Quotas and weighting were employed to ensure that the sample’s composition reflects that of the Canadian population according to census parameters. The precision of Ipsos online polls is measured using a credibility interval. In this case, the poll is accurate to within ± 3.8 percentage points, 19 times out of 20, had all Canadians aged 18+ been polled. The credibility interval will be wider among subsets of the population. All sample surveys and polls may be subject to other sources of error, including, but not limited to coverage error, and measurement error.

JO de Paris 2024 : Une facture de pr√®s de 9 milliards d’euros (pour l’instant…)



Une facture de pr√®s de 9 milliards d’euros (pour l’instant…)

C’est ce qui s’appelle faire p√©ter l’addition dans les grandes largeurs. Initialement √©valu√©e √† 3,8 milliards d’euros, la facture totale des JO de Paris fr√īle actuellement les 9 milliards d’euros dont un peu plus de 2,4 milliards d’argent public. Tout n’est pas encore compt√©, factur√©, additionn√©, et il est vraisemblable que la note finale d√©passe les dix milliards d’euros. Le genre de note de frais que le service compta ne laisse habituellement pas passer, du moins dans une bo√ģte normale.

Mais m√™me si c’est le cas, ces Jeux seraient l’une des √©ditions les moins co√Ľteuses de l’histoire moderne. Le comit√© d’organisation des JO (Cojo) organise la comp√©tition gr√Ęce principalement √† l’argent priv√© des sponsors (1,24 milliard), du Comit√© international olympique (1,2 md) et de la billetterie (1,4 md). Au total, d√©j√† 4,4 milliards d’euros servent √† louer le Stade de France, √† payer des agents de s√©curit√©, les lits du village olympique, les tribunes temporaires ou encore les danseurs de la c√©r√©monie d’ouverture.

Le budget sous-estimé, un grand classique du genre

Fin 2022, le Cojo a rehauss√© son budget de 10 % notamment en raison de l’inflation. Il avait alors re√ßu un renfort d’argent public de 111 millions d’euros de la part de l’Etat et des collectivit√©s notamment pour l’organisation des Jeux paralympiques. La Cour des comptes a consid√©r√© que cette hausse provenait aussi de la sous-estimation du budget initial, un classique en la mati√®re.

A 100 jours de l’√©v√®nement, « la zone de risque est maintenant », rel√®ve une source gouvernementale. Le Cojo dispose encore d’un matelas de pr√®s de 120 millions d’euros dans lequel il peut piocher. Signe que les temps sont durs, il a r√©cemment demand√© √† la r√©gion Ile-de-France de contribuer aux transports en bus des accr√©dit√©s, une charge de dix millions d’euros. La r√©gion a refus√©.

L’Etat surveille de pr√®s : en cas de d√©ficit c’est lui qui interviendra car il a donn√© sa garantie √† hauteur de trois milliards d’euros. « Pour l’instant, il n’y a aucune raison de penser qu’il y aura un d√©ficit », a r√©cemment assur√© la ministre des Sports et des JO, Am√©lie Oud√©a-Castera.

De l’argent public pour les infrastructures

Si « les Jeux financent les Jeux », selon la formule des organisateurs, il a toujours √©t√© pr√©vu que les infrastructures seraient prises en charge par l’argent public. Le village olympique qui sera transform√© en logements mis sur le march√© (646 millions dont 542 de l’√Čtat), la passerelle entre le Stade de France et le centre aquatique olympique, des contributions aux nouvelles piscines de Seine-Saint-Denis…

Via la Soci√©t√© de livraison des ouvrages olympiques (Solideo), pr√®s d’1,8 milliard d’euros de deniers publics (√Čtat, r√©gion IDF, Paris, Seine-Saint-Denis, etc) sont all√©s aux JO. Le budget total de la Solideo est de 4,4 milliards d’euros. Ajout√©e au budget du Cojo, la note fr√īle les neuf milliards d’euros √† 8,8 milliards d’euros. Soit deux milliards de plus que ce qui √©tait pr√©vu en 2019 (6,8 milliards).

D’autres d√©penses encore non chiffr√©es

Quel sera le co√Ľt exact de la s√©curit√© publique, incluant les primes de 1.900 euros aux policiers ? Les primes pour la fonction publique ne sont pas chiffr√©es non plus. Le pr√©sident de la Cour des comptes, Pierre Moscovici, avait estim√© √† trois milliards d’euros les investissements publics au final. « Trois, quatre, cinq milliards d’euros », a-t-il actualis√© r√©cemment, cela sera connu « apr√®s les JO ». « Il n’y a aucune raison que √ßa atteigne cinq milliards », a r√©torqu√© Am√©lie Oud√©a-Cast√©ra, qui assure qu’il n’y a ni « d√©rives budg√©taires, ni co√Ľt cach√© ».

Si on prend l’estimation de la Cour des comptes, l’addition avoisinera sans doute les dix milliards d’euros. Auxquels il faudra peut-√™tre ajouter des surprises financi√®res des derniers mois. Les JO de Tokyo, aggrav√©s par la crise sanitaire du Covid et leur report d’un an, ont co√Ľt√© douze milliards d’euros selon la Cour des comptes japonaise, soit pr√®s de deux fois plus que dans le dossier de candidature.

A Londres, selon les √©valuations (variables selon les p√©rim√®tres), ils ont co√Ľt√© entre douze et quinze milliards d’euros. A Ath√®nes, en 2004, les JO qui ont grev√© les d√©ficits de l’Etat grec, ont co√Ľt√© treize milliards d’euros. « Ces budgets sont probablement les plus ma√ģtris√©s de l’histoire des JO » et « les plus sobres organis√©s depuis vingt ans », affirme la ministre des JO. R√©ponse apr√®s l’√©v√©nement dans un rapport de la Cour des comptes pr√©vu √† l’automne 2025.

Patients, staff struggling as Halifax’s largest hospital without running water | Globalnews.ca



Patients, staff struggling as Halifax’s largest hospital without running water

Access to emergency healthcare services in Halifax was dealt another blow on Thursday as the city’s QEII infirmary site was without running water or heat following a second water main break at the hospital in 24 hours.

One patient with accessibility needs said he was advised to leave due to the fact he wasn’t able to access the hospital’s washroom facilities.

“I have no circulation in my legs. I can’t walk,” said David Macdonald, who said he had recently undergone surgery.

“The health department came in and they moved everyone they could move out of the hospital. Some people live far away, they live five or six hours from here. How can they get home?”

John Gillis, communications chief at Nova Scotia Health, said the second water main break occurred early on Thursday morning while crews were attending to the original break.

“Both water main breaks were in the same pipe. One break occurred, was repaired, and unfortunately, afterward, another break occurred in the same section,” he said during a media availability on Thursday.

Gillis added the water main breaks resulted in the loss of water and steam for the entire Halifax Infirmary campus including both the Veterans Memorial and Abbie J. Lane buildings.

He said some surgeries at the Victoria General Hospital in Halifax and the Dartmouth General Hospital are being rescheduled to accommodate urgent cases that would normally be done at the Halifax Infirmary.

“It’s not possible to proceed with dialysis and difficult to proceed with surgery under these conditions,” he said, noting a decision to move patients hasn’t been made “at this point.”

The latest health and medical news emailed to you every Sunday.

“It’s cooler in the building than we want it to be on a day like this and access to bathrooms is difficult.”

Gillis said crews have been forced to transport water, washing stations, and portable toilets into the hospital as a temporary measure. He said he isn’t aware of the current number of patients who remain inside the building at the time but said inpatient care is ongoing.

“The emergency department is open so if you have an emergency, absolutely come here,” he said, adding that he otherwise recommends individuals choose a pharmacy, virtual care, or a separate emergency department location until the issue is resolved at the Halifax infirmary.

On the bright side, he said boilers are operating again and therefore heat will be restored to the buildings on Thursday afternoon.

“The restoration of full water pressure to be able to run water, toilets, and fire suppression … we still don’t have an estimation,” he continued.

Gillis said the water main break had no relation to the ongoing construction of the infirmary’s expansion project.

“It was a pipe inside a building here,” he said.

When asked how patients were being treated that choose to stay inside the hospital, Gillis said he’s unaware of any instances of people being asked to leave.

“Because we have limited access to washroom facilities, we’re trying to reduce visitors to patients. If people want to come and bring extra clothes, blankets for patients, that’s ok,” he said.

Gillis added that an emergency response team is holding discussions throughout the day and will determine if the infirmary can return to normal conditions tomorrow.

In a Wednesday release, Nova Scotia Health said a water main break had forced the cancellation of some elective surgeries and has the hospital asking patients “without emergency concerns” to visit another ER.

“There is currently no running water for flushing toilets or drinking. Hand sanitizer is available and we are working to bring in drinking water and portable hand-washing stations/washrooms to as soon as possible,” the release stated.

All elective and non-urgent surgeries and procedures were then cancelled and rescheduled.

Fourplexes are a complicated niche that could provide some housing relief - The Globe and Mail



Fourplexes are a complicated niche that could provide some housing relief

Open this photo in gallery:

Prototype for a fourplex development on a small Vancouver building lot by Smallworks, a Vancouver design studio focused on laneway homes. Federal Housing Minister Sean Fraser has required allowing fourplexes as a condition of getting millions in federal housing money in many cities. smallworks.ca

Not that long ago, “fourplex” was a relatively rare term, popping up mainly in news stories about movie theatres or various disasters befalling people who happened to live in this older form of housing left over from the early 20th century.

But last year, the word appeared in 200 stories in the country’s approximately 40 largest newspapers and many hundreds of times more in radio, TV and social media. The big bump came as politicians at all levels, spurred on by vocal pro-housing groups in many cities, started to push the idea of allowing four homes on every residential lot as one way of grappling with the country’s startlingly awful housing crisis.

Federal Housing Minister Sean Fraser has required allowing fourplexes as a condition of getting millions in federal housing money in many cities. The B.C. government has passed legislation that will require four- to sixplexes to be permitted in any city larger than 5,000.

And Ontario is now having a big politically divided conversation over fourplexes. The Ontario Liberal Party, with enthusiastic support from the Greens, are planning to table legislation to allow them everywhere. Premier Doug Ford has come out against, saying it would be a massive mistake to impose that form everywhere.

But why the frenzy of activity over this particular housing strategy? And, even if it suddenly becomes the zoning norm across Canada, what will it really change about the country’s housing shortage – the presumed cause of outlandish housing prices now being paid in Canada for anything with four walls and a roof?

It’s math, plus politics, say many housing specialists. Fourplexes are a form that can be pitched for the largest swath of available residential land in the country. They’re relatively cheap to build. And they’re not too intrusive.

That means, ideally, large numbers of new homes in a form that is the most likely to be accepted by the public, say many housing specialists.

“The people who are trying to make big changes are going for something that is ambitious but isn’t going to get every residential association up in arms,” says Carolyn Whitzman, a planning professor and housing expert based at the University of Ottawa. Fourplexes are not towers or even small apartment buildings.

In Calgary, where the city has allowed fourplexes for years in a small number of zones and is now looking to make it a permitted use everywhere without any apparent “poison pills” that might actually slow them down, advocates say they understand it is a political bargain.

“If they had proposed six storeys everywhere, there would have been a mass uprising everywhere,” said Katherine Davies, with More Neighbours Calgary, a volunteer group of housing enthusiasts.

The potential seems enormous on paper. The 2021 census showed about 53 per cent of Canada’s 15 million “occupied private dwellings” were single-detached houses.

Ontario Green Party Leader Mike Schreiner tweeted excitedly last month that, in his province, “If only 18 per cent of single family homes were converted to fourplexes we would exceed our provincial housing goals by 500,000 homes.” B.C. is projecting 130,000 in 10 years and Ms. Davies said it’s possible there could be 1,000 a year among Calgary’s 150,000 parcels.

But those in the actual business of building homes, along with housing groups that back this movement, all point out that it’s not going to be as easy as the multiplication tables might make it look.

For one, even cities that allow fourplex construction in their zoning may include provisions that actually keep the take-up low. They can require a lot of parking, a feature that can kill even a concrete tower. They can put in design-limited requirements for setbacks or heights. And, most important, they can limit the amount of square feet that can be built on a lot.

Toronto began allowing fourplexes as of last May. Vancouver has allowed them since last September. In both cities, only about 100 applications have been received.

Some critics in Vancouver say that city’s decision to limit the size to the same number of square feet as the total lot (so about 4,000 square feet for a standard lot), which is the same size that a single-detached house is allowed, has deliberately slowed applications.

Vancouver officials say they kept the overall size low in order to make sure that smaller, more affordable homes are built. Others say it appears that they just didn’t want current residents to see too much change.

“They purposefully wanted to make it a soft uptake,” says Jake FryJake Fry, founder of Smallworks Studios and Laneway Housing, which specializes in laneways, and a strong advocate for alternate forms of smaller housing for decades in Vancouver.

The province’s legislation will allow more square feet per lot in other cities, up to 50 per cent more than Vancouver’s.

A second issue with the utopian dream of a fourplex boom is who is going to finance and construct them.

Again, experienced builders say it’s not likely going to be aging boomers, using their retirement savings, or even multi-generational families pooling resources.

Mr. Fry at Smallworks and Bryn Davidson at Lanefab, another well-known infill-house builder in Vancouver, estimated costs in Vancouver for just construction and fees, not land or financing, at anywhere from $1.5- to $2.5-million. That could be less in various Canadian suburbs, but likely not less than $1-million.

The financial risk is likely too large for the average senior homeowner and the multi-generational families will need several adult children with equity or savings to contribute.

Even for those families, says Mr. Fry and others, banks will need to develop a new kind of financing product to service this new “missing middle” form of development, which is not the single-detached houses or concrete towers that banks have loaned money on for decades.

And, in reality, ramping up large-scale production of fourplexes will likely require the growth of a new, niche type of developer.

That’s who is likely to take on this kind of product, says Janna Levitt, an architect with the Toronto firm LGA Architectural Partners.

Ms. Levitt and her husband are finishing up a fourplex with laneway house in the Annex neighbourhood of Toronto and she remains a firm fan of the new option.

“I think politicians are on to the fourplex as a way to make a dent. A fourplex is a great way to start,” she says. “And so many single-family neighbourhoods are emptying out and ripe for this kind of intensification.”

Ms. Levitt said the number of applications are low in Toronto because of the current high costs of construction and financing. But she believes they will take off once the situation eases, especially the cheaper kind of fourplex that is a conversion of an existing large house rather than a new build.

Toronto hasn’t put a limit on the number of square feet allowed and also lets people build a laneway first and live in that while construction on the fourplex is happening – something Vancouver doesn’t – so that is an advantage.

But, like others, she said it’s not likely existing owners or multi-generational families who will build but a new cohort of small-scale developers. That is who is contacting her firm these days about building.

Finally, one more hurdle for fourplexes – not everyone is a fan and that’s not just Doug Ford. Toronto city councillor Gord Perks said they will never create affordable housing and government efforts should be going into the strategies that really do: putting money into social housing, preventing investors from wreaking havoc in the housing market, and improving incomes.

Ontario economist Mike Moffatt, who has turned into a driver of the Canadian public conversation about housing, agrees they are not the cheapest form of housing around.

But they do provide an option for those in the income band that isn’t eligible for government help and never will be.

“Governments are not going to build housing for 70 to 80 per cent of the population,” he said.

That’s where fourplexes can have an impact, allowing some form of smaller, less expensive housing as infill in central cities “Probably not in the millions for the country as a whole. It would maybe max out at 10,000 a year.”

Stade Toulousain-Exeter : "Des st√©r√©otypes offensants !" Pourquoi le club anglais, violemment critiqu√©, a d√Ľ r√©volutionner son identit√© visuelle

l'essentiel Les "Chiefs" joueront √† Ernest-Wallon, dimanche 14 avril contre Toulouse, pour tenter de rallier les demi-finales de la Champions Cup.

Ils ont choisi l’apaisement face √† la mont√©e de la pol√©mique. Depuis juillet 2022, le club de rugby anglais d’Exeter arbore, sur son maillot, un tout nouveau logo. C’est avec cette nouvelle identit√©, commune √† l’ensemble du club, qu’ils se pr√©sentent ce dimanche 14 avril sur la pelouse d’Ernest-Wallon, afin de d√©fier le Stade Toulousain en quart de finale de la Champions Cup.

Mais pourquoi les dirigeants d’Exeter ont-ils √©t√© contraints d’abandonner leur logo historique, repr√©sentant depuis 1871 (fondation du club) une t√™te de chef indien d’Am√©rique ?

En raison d’une interpellation, en 2021, par le Congr√®s national des Indiens d’Am√©rique. Dans une lettre, l’association avait exprim√© son indignation au pr√©sident d’Exeter, jugeant que le logo du club "port [ait] atteinte aux peuples indig√®nes par les st√©r√©otypes offensants qu’elle v√©hicule".

Quelques mois plus tard, les dirigeants d’Exeter annon√ßaient le changement d’identit√©. "En tant que club de rugby, nous avons √©t√© dispos√©s √† √©couter, nous avons consult√© de nombreuses personnes et nous sommes maintenant pr√™ts √† provoquer le changement", avait indiqu√© le pr√©sident Tony Rowe.

Le nouveau logo repr√©sente ainsi ; d√©sormais, la t√™te d’un soldat. Un Celte, appartenant √† la tribu des Dumnonii. Une population qui occupait une zone couvrant le Devon, o√Ļ Exeter se situe, les Cornouailles et certaines parties du Somerset. Ce pendant plusieurs si√®cles avant les d√©buts de l’occupation romaine en 43 de notre √®re. Le club arbore ce nouveau logo depuis le d√©but de la saison 2022/2023.

En revanche, le surnom des joueurs, les "Chiefs", a √©t√© conserv√©. L’appellation, initialement inspir√©e des Indiens d’Am√©rique, peut √©galement correspondre √† la nouvelle identit√© comme l’avait alors expliqu√© le pr√©sident. "Le terme Chiefs est tout aussi ancr√© dans notre histoire, remontant √† plus d’un si√®cle, lorsque les √©quipes de cette r√©gion appelaient r√©guli√®rement leur √©quipe premi√®re celle des Chiefs. Nous sommes Exeter, nous sommes les Chiefs !"

Mercato : Mbappé choqué par le PSG ?

Le PSG est fixé concernant l'avenir de Kylian Mbappé : l'attaquant parisien quittera le club libre en juin prochain. Sa future destination, le Real Madrid, n'a pas encore été officialisée, tout comme son départ. Depuis, Mbappé ne joue plus beaucoup en Ligue 1 et en Ligue des Champions, ses performances sont en dents de scie. Le traitement infligé par son club depuis cette annonce le troublerait beaucoup.

Face au FC Barcelone, le match de Mbapp√© √©tait le parfait exemple de sa situation au PSG : pr√©sent mais absent. Le Bondynois quittera son club de cŇďur, rejoint en 2017 pour aller dans le club de ses r√™ves : le Real Madrid. La fin d'aventure avec le PSG est plus dure qu'il ne le pr√©voyait.

Mbappé, troublé par son départ

Selon le m√©dia espagnol AS, Kylian Mbapp√© serait troubl√© par son d√©part, pas encore act√©. S'il a annonc√© √† Nasser al-Khela√Įfi, son pr√©sident, qu'il allait quitter le club √† la fin de son contrat en juin prochain, rien n'a encore √©t√© rendu public. La tension avec son entra√ģneur ne jouerait pas non plus en sa faveur...

Mbappé ne s'attendait pas à un tel traitement

Toujours selon AS, Kylian Mbapp√© ne s'attendait pas √† vivre une telle saison. Malgr√© sa mise √† l'√©cart l'√©t√© dernier, √©tant m√™me priv√© de la tourn√©e en Asie, le num√©ro 7 du PSG s'attendait √† √™tre un √©l√©ment cl√© de l'√©quipe parisienne. Sa mise √† l'√©cart depuis deux mois par Luis Enrique durant les matchs de championnat joue un r√īle sur ses performances...

Liga, 31e journée - Le FC Barcelone, remanié avant le quart retour contre le PSG en Ligue des champions, bat Cadix (0-1) - Eurosport



Liga, 31e journée - Le FC Barcelone, remanié avant le quart retour contre le PSG en Ligue des champions, bat Cadix (0-1)

Le FC Barcelone est pr√™t √† accueillir le PSG. Sur la pelouse de Cadix, en d√©pit d’un effectif largement remani√©, les Blaugrana sont all√©s empocher une tr√®s courte victoire sans forcer leur talent.

João Félix a régalé les supporters avec quelques gestes de grande classe, dont un retourné acrobatique qui a fait mouche (0-1). Courageux mais trop limités, les joueurs de Cadix auraient pu espérer davantage face l'équipe B catalane.

Mais √† l’arriv√©e, le Bar√ßa a sign√© un sixi√®me succ√®s de rang, toutes comp√©titions confondues, qui conforte sa place de dauphin du Real Madrid au classement √† une semaine du Clasico.

Barcelone n’a plus grand-chose √† esp√©rer dans le championnat espagnol, sinon garder sa deuxi√®me place et, surtout, emmagasiner de la confiance pour bien finir en Ligue des champions. En pleine confiance apr√®s leur victoire sur la pelouse du PSG, les hommes de Xavi ont v√©cu un match tr√®s tranquille sur la pelouse de Cadix, qui se bat pour sa place en Liga.

La rencontre a d√©marr√© au petit trot et les nombreux changements op√©r√©s par le coach des Blaugrana ont eu un impact sur la qualit√© du jeu produit. Cela manquait parfois d’automatismes devant pour inqui√©ter les d√©fenseurs de Cadix.

Mais il y a quand m√™me du talent dans cet effectif. La preuve avec Jo√£o F√©lix, qui a inscrit son 7e but de la saison en Liga avec une bicyclette opportuniste du pied gauche, √† la r√©ception d’un corner mal renvoy√© au premier poteau (0-1, 37e). Les Barcelonais s’en sortaient tr√®s bien avec cette courte avance, tant ils ont beaucoup jou√© avec le frein √† main.

Ils avaient clairement le quart de finale retour de Ligue des champions en tête, et Xavi ne leur en tiendra pas rigueur. En ce sens, les Andalous ont été des adversaires parfaits pour ne pas trop souffrir. Et sans Victor Chust, qui a miraculeusement sauvé une tentative de Fermín López sur sa ligne (43e), le break aurait été fait juste avant la pause.

Call of the Wilde: Montreal Canadiens get more trouble from Tampa Bay Lightning - Montreal | Globalnews.ca



Call of the Wilde: Montreal Canadiens get more trouble from Tampa Bay Lightning - Montreal

It’s one outstanding team after another that the Montreal Canadiens face as they wind down their season. While another missed playoffs wasn’t the hope, solace can be taken that the Canadiens improved as the season progressed.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have given the Canadiens a lot of trouble, and Thursday night was no different. The Lightning seized on an off-night for Cayden Primeau to win 7-4.

Wilde Horses 

It was a rare night for the Canadiens as they finally had some secondary scoring. Alex Newhook, Brendan Gallagher and Joel Armia took over the reins from the first line led by Nick Suzuki.

Newhook has had a strong season with little praise for it. Gallagher continues to work his tail off, even though his best offensive days are behind him. However, the big story on the line is Armia. He has put together a remarkable comeback season.

Story continues below advertisement

His season started in the minors, where it all could have gone extremely wrong for him after a suspect training camp. Armia put his head down and got to work. That work quickly produced a promotion back to the NHL.

Since then, he’s had the best season of his career. Armia scored twice in the contest to up his goal total to 16. That ties his best season registered in 2020. He has seven games to hit a career high in goals.

Armia is also third on the team in goals despite missing 16 games. He trails only Suzuki and Cole Caufield. Armia is tied with Juraj Slafkovsky, who kept his excellent run going with a tip-in on a point shot. Slafkovsky is learning he cannot be contended with physically. He can go to the front of the net and park, then wait. He’s learning what an outstanding weapon he has.

Slafkovsky used his size again, but in a different manner, on the 6-4 goal. He brought two players to him, and simply had too much strength for the Tampa players to handle. That created space for Suzuki and Caufield. It was Caufield finishing with the shot to the top corner.

Wilde Goats 

Kaiden Guhle took a hit in the first period that seemed to have left him with a concussion. He suffered a concussion in October as well. Guhle’s head was rocked against the glass by Nikita Kucherov. No penalty was called, even though the hit nailed Guhle right between the numbers.

Story continues below advertisement

The point that defenders of that hit will make is that Guhle has to protect himself, because Kucherov was simply following through on the play. However, the issue taken with that is there was no way that Guhle could defend himself. He was finishing a pass to his defensive partner.

Breaking news from Canada and around the world sent to your email, as it happens.

Guhle must play the puck and his hands are low to accomplish that pass. Are we suggesting Guhle must suffer a concussion to make a hockey play? If Guhle does protect himself by pushing his hands against the glass when hit, he cannot simultaneously play the puck.

This is why the rule about “hitting from behind” exists. There are scenarios where a player can’t physically defend themselves in the run of play. The NFL has recognized this. They have recently initiated a penalty called “hitting a defenceless receiver.”

The penalty exists in hockey as well. Simply, call it. Just call it. Guhle was defenceless. He cannot both defend himself and make a hockey play. Let him make a hockey play without also getting a concussion. Let’s protect these players more.

Wilde Cards

One of the hardest things to grasp is that drafting is not an exact science. It’s so common to suggest that a mistake has been made on draft day, but a lot of time must pass before a true evaluation can be made on a pick.

Story continues below advertisement

In his first year after the draft, Jesperi Kotkaniemi looked like the right pick. At third overall, he stormed onto the scene as a teenager and turned in a strong season. Unfortunately, he never progressed. In fact, he has regressed. Kotkaniemi was even a healthy scratch for the Hurricanes on Thursday night. Carolina is on the hook for that contract until 2030.

For every perfect selection of Auston Matthews, there’s a disaster like Nail Yakupov. Even the number one pick, in a revisit of the draft five years later, can turn out to be the wrong selection.

For this reason, the people who are so certain that a mistake in a draft has been made by the Canadiens need to wait for history to tell its own story.

Early on, when Juraj Slafkovsky struggled to keep on his feet and couldn’t win a puck battle, the knives were out and sharpened. Only a season later, Slafkovsky looks like the right choice at first overall.

With that as the backdrop, it’s quite bizarre to see the same scenario playing out with the next Canadiens early first-round pick. The fear now, and even a certainty, for many, is that David Reinbacher was the wrong choice at five.

Matvei Michkov is speculated to be a superior player, but let’s wait on that. Michkov hasn’t played a single game in the NHL. He may actually not be all that. He’s not a big player. He’s a winger. He has no defensive game or a desire to have one — at all. He may not be the next Gretzky. Reinbacher may be the best choice, just like Slafkovsky. Give it time.

Story continues below advertisement

In the end, Kotkaniemi wasn’t the best choice. In fact, the best went four picks later in Quinn Hughes. Evan Bouchard went seven picks later. Both players were not even on the radar in that draft for Montreal. It was a Kotkaniemi or Brady Tkachuk or Filip Zadina choice.

It’s not a science. Every single year a five can be 10th best and a 10th may be fifth best.

This year, there is quite a lot of consternation that the Canadiens absolutely must lose a sufficient number of games to draft fifth. That is the goal. It would be a benefit to draft higher. This is not the disputed point. Of course, higher equals better over the long course of history.

However, should the Canadiens win more and drop to seven, they will still be able to get a forward in the same tier.

It is expected that Ivan Demidov will be the best of the forwards in his tier. However, it may just be Cayden Lindstrom who is best. Berkly Catton might even be the breakout star, or Cole Eiserman. Tij Iginla could also follow in his father’s footsteps and be a great one who was chosen later than he should have been.

No one knows. As long as the Canadiens get a forward in the top tier, they’ll have achieved their goal. Remember that the Vegas Golden Knights wouldn’t part with Cody Glass, taken at six, but were fine to part with Nick Suzuki, taken at 13, in the Max Pacioretty trade.

Story continues below advertisement

If you are still skeptical Montreal absolutely must finish fifth-worst, look at every single draft in history. There isn’t a single one where a redraft would see the same top 10 in the order taken. Not one.

So try not to lose too much sleep thinking this is the first draft ever where the order taken is the exact order of excellence the picks will mature to. Montreal will get an excellent forward in the draft. That is sufficient for the day.

Brian Wilde, a Montreal-based sports writer, brings you Call of the Wilde on globalnews.ca after each Canadiens game.

Tennis (Monte-Carlo): Ruud s'offre le numéro 1 mondial Djokovic et rejoint Tsitsipas en finale



Ruud s'offre le numéro 1 mondial Djokovic et rejoint Tsitsipas en finale

Casper Ruud, double finaliste de Roland-Garros (2022, 2023), a domin√© samedi le num√©ro un mondial Novak Djokovic (6-4, 1-6, 6-4) et s'est ainsi qualifi√© pour la finale du Masters 1000 de Monte-Carlo o√Ļ il affrontera Stefanos Tsistipas.

Casper Ruud tient enfin sa victoire face √† un joueur du top 3 mondial. Apr√®s onze √©checs, le Norv√©gien de 25 ans s'est offert ce samedi Novak Djokovic (6-4, 1-6, 6-4), toujours num√©ro un mondial, lros d'une demi-finale du Masters 1 000 de Monte-Carlo. Ruud affrontera en finale Stefanos Tsitsipas, tombeur plus t√īt de Jannik Sinner.

Après avoir effacé deux balles de match sur son service, Novak Djokovic a cédé sur une double faute. Double finaliste de Roland-Garros (2022, 2023), Casper Ruud jouera ainsi sa seconde finale de Masters 1000 après celle perdue à Miami en 2022. Ce dimanche, il défiera Stefanos Tsitsipas, déjà double vainqueur du tournoi monégasque.

"Je ne pouvais que tr√®s bien jouer sinon je savais que ce serait impossible de gagner. J'ai eu la chance de gagner le premier set, surtout que je ne lui avais jamais pris le moindre set jusque-l√†", a comment√© Casper Ruud. "Gr√Ęce √† √ßa, m√™me apr√®s la perte du deuxi√®me set je savais que je pouvais quand m√™me gagner."

Effectivement, en cinq rencontres jusque-là, la dernière en finale de Roland-Garros l'an dernier, Djokovic avait toujours gagné et n'avait même jamais perdu le moindre set contre Ruud. Cette fois, le Serbe a commencé la rencontre en laissant échapper sa mise en jeu. Un échange de breaks en milieu de set n'y a rien changé, Ruud a conservé l'avantage jusqu'au bout.

En d√©but de deuxi√®me manche, Djokovic a laiss√© appara√ģtre des signes de fatigue: il soufflait comme un boeuf au changement de c√īt√© et, entre les √©changes, recherchait l'ombre qui, petit √† petit grignotait le court. Et tandis que la temp√©rature est nettement descendue, Djokovic a domin√© le deuxi√®me set de la t√™te et des √©paules, en profitant des largesses de son adversaire, dont plusieurs doubles fautes cruciales.

Contre toute attente, et tandis que la fra√ģcheur de fin de journ√©e commen√ßait d'envelopper le court, le vent a de nouveau tourn√© et c'est Ruud qui s'est √©chapp√© 3-0. Mais, avec l'aide du public qui s'est mis √† le soutenir parfois bruyamment, Djokovic a recoll√© √† 4-4. Le Serbe a servi √† 4-5 pour rester dans la partie mais n'a pu que conc√©der une derni√®re fois sa mise en jeu et le match. Avant d'affronter Tsitsipas, "je vais essayer de passer une bonne nuit et d'√™tre aussi pr√™t que possible pour la finale", a assur√© Ruud.

Manslaughter Charges: 2 people facing charges following the death of man, 27, in Pembroke, Ont. | CTV News



Manslaughter Charges: 2 people facing charges following the death of man, 27, in Pembroke, Ont.

Pembroke resident Donald Wesley Sullivan, 35, and Ottawa resident Taylor Hein, 37, have been charged with manslaughter and trafficking in a schedule I substance – fentanyl, police add.

The accused appeared at the Ontario Court of Justice in the City of Pembroke on Thursday. While both remain in custody, Sullivan is scheduled to appear again on April 9 and Hein is scheduled to make another appearance on April 18.

Les Dragons corrig√©s par Huddersfield en quarts de finale de la Cup - L'√Čquipe



Les Dragons corrigés par Huddersfield en quarts de finale de la Cup

Ce samedi soir les Dragons tombent de très haut. Leaders de la Super League, les Catalans avaient pointé la Cup comme l'un des gros objectifs de la saison. Mais à domicile, les joueurs de Steve McNamara n'ont pas existé en quarts de finale, face à l'efficacité offensive d'Huddersfield (6-34).

Men√©s 16-0 √† la mi-temps, apr√®s trois essais des Giants par l'arri√®re Jake Connor, Tui Lolohea et Adam Swift, les Perpignanais ont √† nouveau encaiss√© trois r√©alisations suppl√©mentaires (Sebastine Ikahihifo, Esan Marsters et Kevin Naiqama) et une p√©nalit√© lors du deuxi√®me acte. La r√©duction du score par Matt Ikuvalu √† la 56e, sera anecdotique.

Un premier coup dur

Au-delà de la défaite, et malgré quelques absences, c'est la manière qui inquiète alors que les Dragons ont insisté toute la semaine sur la défense. Cette désillusion est le premier gros coup de la saison pour des Dragons qui n'ont plus réussi à dépasser le stade des quarts de finale de cette compétition depuis leur victoire en 2018.

Les partenaires de Benjamin Garcia tenteront de se remettre la tête à l'endroit avec la réception de Hull KR, samedi prochain en Super League.

Ontario $10 land plots draw significant interest, Cochrane mayor says | CP24.com



Ontario $10 land plots draw significant interest, Cochrane mayor says

A small town in northeastern Ontario is being inundated with interest after announcing a program that would see plots of land for new home builds being offered for as low as $10 along with a five-year property tax break.

Cochrane, Ontario’s municipal council voted to adopt this plan during a special meeting last November.

Set to launch by early May at the latest, the expansion of town of more than 5,000 will include up to 1,500 new plots of land, which is roughly the size of three municipal subdivisions. These kinds of properties in Cochrane typically sell for around $50,000 each.

As for the construction and installation of infrastructure, like sewers and other utilities, that will be handled by developers with the new property owners on the hook for covering those costs.

Despite those stipulations, more than 4,000 people have already expressed interest in the program, Cochrane Mayor Peter Politis told CP24.com during an interview on Thursday.

“It's really quite remarkable, quite frankly, and we haven't even launched yet,” he said, adding that the “vast majority” of those who have reached out so far are from southern Ontario, specifically the Greater Toronto Area.

“Judging by what's happened so far, I think we're very positive about where it's gonna go and you know, we always have the opportunity to expand the settlement area.”

Town a 'Great Canadian way of living'

The mayor went on to say that Cochrane, which is more than seven hours north of Toronto, is a modern municipality where people will be proud to call home and raise a family.

He said it’s a town where people can “enjoy the Great Canadian way of living” while being able to “affordably invest” back in the community.

That's a far cry from Toronto where it could take decades to save for the down payment on a home. According to a recent housing affordability report by the National Bank of Canada, Torontonians who earn a median annual income of $91,858 about 25 years to save for a down payment on a house.

Politis, meanwhile. also noted that Cochrane has the amenities people want, including its own phone and electrical utility companies, as well as full fibre optics and full internet service throught the region and beyond.

“We have a lot to offer, and I think most people, when they experience that coming from the larger, more mainstream parts of the country, really appreciate the values that come along with that,” he said.

Politis also said there are good, well-paying jobs in the area, pointing to the region’s robust mining, forestry, and natural resources industries.

Further, he said that Cochrane is not as far north as some may think as its located along the 49th parallel and is south of both Winnipeg and Calgary.

Peter Politis Cochrane mayor

Expansion plan in works 

The municipality, he noted, has been working for more than a decade on its “comprehensive” expansion plan, which includes innovative ideas to offer people from all walks of life and socio-economic brackets the opportunity to own a home in Cochrane and live well in the town.

This includes having supports and services in place such as family doctors and healthcare, schools, and programs for seniors.

“You have to create growth. So it's a bit of a chicken and egg thing and we're working very diligently with the province on this,” Politis said.

Cochrane, he said, is also considering different ideas from developers and groups along with support agencies, who are looking at how they can assist people who don’t qualify for a mortgage among other things.

“And we're not looking at rolling in some type of crazy manner, either. The whole beauty of we provide the small town charm so we’re try to maintain that as well,” the town’s mayor said.

“I think that there's a great opportunity here. … We could be at the forefront of some pretty interesting developments that could be a template to be used in other places, which is exciting.”

Politis said Canada is the second largest country on the planet, but most of the country’s population lives within a few hundred kilometres of the U.S. border.

“I think it's a great opportunity to start a direction of expanding into other vast areas that we have in this country. It's an opportunity for Canada,” he said.

"Un match comme on les aime" : Christophe Urios a kiffé la prestation XXL de l'ASM Clermont, en quarts de Challenge Cup - Clermont-Ferrand (63000)



"Un match comme on les aime" : Christophe Urios a kiffé la prestation XXL de l'ASM Clermont, en quarts de Challenge Cup

De son banc de touche, Christophe Urios a apprécié de voir ses joueurs faire exploser physiquement les Nord-Irlandais de l'Ulster, à l'heure de jeu, ce samedi au Michelin (53-14). Une performance rare de l'ASM Clermont, pas vue à pareille fête depuis longtemps.

Christophe Urios (entra√ģneur en chef de l'ASM Clermont) : "Cela a √©t√© un match comme on les aime. Et comme on n'en fait pas assez souvent ! Notamment en termes de consistance. Aujourd'hui, on a souffert parfois, mais on a √©t√© consistant. Et, c'est √ßa, le rugby ! Si chaque fois que tu es en difficult√©, tu prends ou tu donnes un essai, c'est toujours emmerdant... Et pour construire, apr√®s, c'est compliqu√©.

Physiquement, j'ai trouv√© qu'on √©tait bien (...). Avec la chaleur et l'intensit√© du match, on a r√©ussi √† les faire sauter sur ce plan physique, √† l'heure de jeu. Et aussi parce qu'on a r√©ussi √† r√©gler la conqu√™te en touche. Cela nous a p√©nalis√© en premi√®re mi-temps. Parce que, lors des moments o√Ļ on pouvait appuyer, on n'a pas r√©ussi √† le faire, soit parce que nos conqu√™tes en touche n'√©taient pas propres ou perdues. 

premium Une troisième ligne impériale : découvrez le carnet de notes des Clermontois après ASM - Ulster

Par contre, en deuxième mi-temps, on a réglé ce problème. On a eu des ballons plus propres et on les a mis en difficulté sur des mauls, comme on voulait le faire. Et puis, après, à l'heure de jeu, cela a été dur pour eux.

Concernant notre coaching, il ne faut pas tirer des conclusions trop h√Ętives. Moi, j'ai trouv√© que Beheregaray, Tixeront et Lanen ont fait un gros match. Parce que pour que la fin de match soit bonne, il faut que le d√©but le soit aussi. Ce que j'ai aim√© dans le coaching, c'est que les gars ont amen√© du caract√®re et du temp√©rament, ce qui n'√©tait pas le cas la semaine derni√®re (en 8es contre les Cheetahs, ndlr). On s'√©tait noy√© et on n'en avait pas le droit, surtout qu'on menait largement au score. Aujourd'hui, ils (les rempla√ßants) ont fait en sorte que le match bascule du bon c√īt√©.

Jauneau a √©t√© techniquement tr√®s bon. Il a √©t√© pr√©cis sur la passe, sur le jeu au pied, dont la qualit√© a √©t√© importante, aujourd'hui. Il a su trouver cette alternance entre attaquer, mais pas trop et √©jecter (les ballons). Il y a eu une bonne connexion entre les 8, 9 et 10, plus que la semaine derni√®re. Apr√®s, c'est s√Ľr, quand tu joues comme √ßa dans l'avanc√©e, on est une bonne √©quipe.

Maintenant, la victoire d’aujourd’hui va nous faire du bien √† tous. D√©j√† √† nous, le staff, car ce n’est pas simple. Quand tu ne gagnes pas de matchs, tu es sous pression. Et elle fait du bien aux joueurs."

60,000 complaints have been filed over Toronto's Vacant Home Tax | CP24.com



60,000 complaints have been filed over Toronto's Vacant Home Tax

The number of complaints over the city’s Vacant Home Tax has ballooned to more than 60,000 after Toronto homeowners who missed the declaration deadline were told they owe thousands of dollars for leaving their properties vacant.

Several Toronto residents told CP24 on Thursday that they recently received a huge tax bill from the City of Toronto for “vacant” properties that they say are actually occupied.

The city’s Vacant Home Tax charges owners who leave their properties vacant for more than six months in a calendar year. For 2023, the taxation rate is one per cent, meaning that the tax for a property valued at $1 million is $10,000.

The deadline for homeowners to declare the occupancy status of their residence was initially set for Feb. 29 but later extended to March 15.

Two women who spoke to CP24.com said they made the declaration when the program was initially rolled out in 2022 but were unaware that they were required to do so each year.

“I’m just furious, and I’m upset, and distressed at the same time,” Riverdale resident Sophie Lem told CP24.com on Thursday after receiving a bill from the city for more than $12,000. “I don’t know what to do.”

Ward 12 Coun. Josh Matlow told CP24 Thursday that while the Vacant Home Tax is a “useful tool,” the implementation was not successful.

“The Vacant Home Tax is being used by cities as a tool to identify where there are investment properties that are just sitting around, sitting vacant that really should be used as homes in the midst of a housing affordability crisis,” he said.

“This is just a demonstration of an idea that had merit but has not been implemented well.”

Matlow urged residents in this situation not to pay the bill while the city works to resolve the issue.

“You are going to receive an updated notice to inform you about the next steps,” he told CP24 on Thursday. “I do know that they mayor and city staff are working this out because there is a recognition that this is not done well.”

In response to the influx of complaints from Toronto residents, Mayor Olivia Chow apologized for the rollout, vowing to “clean up the mess.”

"By the time I arrived here, the system was already set… It is not acceptable the way we rolled out this program. It is very new,” Chow told reporters at an unrelated news conference on Thursday.

"I promise you that I will clean this up so that next round, people will not have to line up or have to get a bill that is shocking.”

City Council Speaker Frances Nunziata called the situation a “failure in communication on the part of the city.”

"The City’s outreach efforts failed to effectively reach vulnerable populations such as seniors and those with limited English proficiency, resulting in undue financial burdens and emotional distress among affected homeowners,” she wrote in a statement released Thursday.

“With the commencement of tax bill mailouts on April 2, my office has been inundated with pleas for assistance from distressed residents facing unexpected tax liabilities.”

City spokesperson Russell Baker said the Budget Chief and Mayor will be seeking approval from council to waive the $21.24 late fee for homeowners who missed the deadline.
