Last Dalhousie University dentistry student to return to clinic after suspension

National News - 51 min 32 sec ago
The last dentistry student who was suspended from clinical practice at Dalhousie University over posts made on Facebook is being allowed to return under a number of conditions, but a lawyer for Ryan Millet says he has been found guilty of professional misconduct by an academic standards class committee. MacIntosh says Millet is considering his legal options. The university announced Monday that 12 of the 13 students were allowed to return to clinical practice under several conditions including ongoing participation in a restorative justice program and participation in classes on communication and professionalism. The school didn't identify the 13th student, but Millet's legal team said he was the only student who wasn't allowed to return to clinical practice.

Fiat Chrysler recalls 703,000 vehicles in U.S. to fix ignition switches

Business News - 59 min 34 sec ago

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling 702,578 SUVs and minivans to fix defective ignition switches that can unexpectedly turn off the engine, according to documents posted Friday by U.S. safety regulators. If there is a key fob, it should also be removed, Fiat Chrysler said in documents posted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The company said road conditions or a jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move into the off or accessory position, turning off the engine and disabling the air bags, power steering and power brakes. Fiat Chrysler said it expects to begin replacing the defective ignition switches for the 2008-2009 minivans and SUVs in April and the 2010 vehicles in August.

Bank of Canada head says oil shock looks front-loaded: paper

Business News - 1 hour 3 min ago

Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz said recent evidence suggests damage from the oil shock is hitting the economy earlier and spreading faster than anticipated, but that this could also point to an earlier rebound, the Globe and Mail reported on Friday. Poloz said the fourth-quarter gross domestic product report, released earlier this week, cemented the bank’s view that the oil-shock effects are working their way into the economy sooner than the bank had expected. Poloz said that this increasingly front-loaded appearance to the oil shock makes an even stronger argument in favor of the bank's decision to cut rates in January, rather than, using the January rate decision to forewarn the markets of a cut that then could have then followed in March. He said that at some point in the second half of the year, the improving momentum in the non-energy export side of the economy should take over from the oil-related slowdown as the economy’s dominant feature, and the overall theme should again be an economy that is gradually closing its output gap.
