** Ontario’s Progressive Conservative government is moving to repeal chunks of the previous government’s labor changes in response to business owners who argued many of the changes were too costly, forcing them to raise prices and cut staff.

** Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says it could cost taxpayers as much C$1 billion ($763.94 million) to cancel or suspend a massive sale of armored vehicles to Saudi Arabia, arguing that his government is restricted in measures Canada could take if Riyadh is found responsible for journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s death.


** Small businesses are warning that the carbon tax rebate system outlined by Ottawa on Tuesday could force the private sector to shoulder an unfair portion of the costs, piling on new tax burdens just as expanded Canada Pension Plan requirements come into force next year.
