National News - 22 min 34 sec ago

The fraud trial of former Quebec lieutenant-governor Lise Thibault will continue after a failed attempt at getting it quashed. A Quebec court judge dismissed two petitions she filed and ruled Monday that Thibault is not entitled to royal immunity. Thibault, who held the provincial vice-regal post between 1997 and 2007, is on trial after being charged with fraud and breach of trust in connection with more than $700,000 in alleged improper expenses. The charges were laid after a joint report filed by former provincial auditor general Renaud Lachance and his federal counterpart at the time, Sheila Fraser.

Exclusive: GM moves next version of big pickups ahead by nine months - sources

National News - 28 min 33 sec ago

By Paul Lienert and Ben Klayman DETROIT (Reuters) - General Motors Co has pushed forward the launch of its next-generation full-size pickups by about nine months to fall 2018, hoping to narrow rival Ford Motor Co's still-sizable lead in meeting future U.S. fuel-economy standards, supplier sources said on Monday. Redesigned versions of GM's full-size sport-utility vehicles are expected to follow about a year later, the two sources said. GM officials declined to comment on future product plans. Like Ford with its all-new 2015 F-150, GM is dramatically lightening the next versions of its Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups, which are being developed under a program known to suppliers as T1XX, or T1 for short.
