CBC: During U.S. President Joe Biden’s visit to Ottawa on Thursday and Friday, some roads will be fully closed and others will experience temporary closures.

This will be Biden’s first visit to Canada since taking office in 2021.

He is scheduled to address parliament, meet with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Governor General Mary Simon.

The president’s visit is unlikely to affect the morning commute on March 23, the City of Ottawa said.

However, the city’s online traffic map will have live updates on all closures, detours and traffic impacts.


Global News: Manitoba will raise the minimum wage twice in 2023, the province’s labour minister said on March 22, 2023.

Labour Minister Jon Reyes said the changes are expected to put Manitoba’s minimum wage in the top tier among provinces.

Currently, only Saskatchewan’s minimum wage is lower.

However, the new minimum wage won’t reach Winnipeg’s living wage of $18.34.
