It’s possible that what we search for could be more indicative of how we’ll vote in elections than what we tell pollsters, but so far the evidence is mixed

Who knew Canada once planned to build a nuclear power plant in the arctic??
We bought this 60-year-old Government of Canada map about the country’s most important resources, and then updated it

What a commodity bust would mean for Canada's economy. This quote from SFU's David Jacks sums it up nicely: “We’ve experienced a tremendous and wonderful 15 years, and with the backdrop of a very large leverage and mortgage cycle, we’ve had a tripling of home prices. But the upswing is behind us. Now we’re on the downward side of the cycle."
Given that we’re already in a slow-growth environment, the risk is stagnation in the economy, or something worse

The reality is Ontario’s creaking workforce is likely to upset everyone’s plans, no matter which party wins.

Here's the one bling, I mean thing, that really saved Canada from a larger trade deficit in July
A massive one-month increase in exports of precious metals jewelry seems to have rescued Canada from another ugly trade deficit

Canadians are googling the recession like mad. What that says about our fears

A lot of reasons are given for why Canada doesn’t have a housing bubble. Almost all were said about the U.S. housing market before that bubble burst.

Hear from the guy who swallowed the human toe in Dawson City. Plus, a pic of where the toe is now (don't worry, it's not gross. Quite lovely actually)
'I really thought I was probably going to end up choking. How lame would that look?' Joshua Clark recounts the stunt
