    Open on holidays

    Ottawa city council has voted in favour of allowing business in the Glebe to stay open on six holidays, similar to what is already in place in the Byward Market. The exemption will allow stores to welcome customers on New Year's Day, Family Day, Victoria Day, Canada Day, Labour Day and Thanksgiving. Some opposing the idea argue this will open the floodgates, prompting businesses across the city to ask for equal treatment.

    A different site?

    The Ottawa Hospital says it is reviewing its choice of a location for a new hospital, and may end up opting for a site other than the experimental farm. In 2014, former Ottawa cabinet minister John Baird announced the hospital was getting 24 hectares of land from the experimental farm for a new Civic campus. The CEO of the Ottawa Hospital says they are reviewing locations and are committed to finding the best one.

    Testimony over

    Jian Ghomeshi's sexual assault trial in Toronto has adjourned for the day. The Crown announced it would call no more witnesses and the former CBC radio host will not take the stand himself. Lawyers are expected to make their closing submissions tomorrow. Ghomeshi has pleaded not guilty to four counts of sexual assault and one count of overcoming resistance by choking.

    Lowered expectations

    Ontario's environment minister says no one imagines that a highly anticipated meeting next month between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the premiers will conclude a new climate plan for the country. Trudeau's promise to convene a first minister's meeting within 90 days of December's Paris climate conference set high expectations. The Liberal election platform said the creation of new national emission reduction targets would be central to his meeting with the provinces and territories. But Ontario environment and climate minister Glen Murray says no one expects a pan-Canadian climate framework to emerge from the next meeting, because months of background work by officials was just recently set in motion when provincial ministers met their federal counterpart, Catherine McKenna.
