Canada to make 'serious investment' in clean tech in budget -finance minister – Yahoo Finance

OTTAWA, March 20 (Reuters) – Canada must boost investments in the green transition in this year's federal budget which is due out next week, or else it risks losing out on a one-time opportunity to boost jobs and the economy, Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland said on Monday.
Canada's federal budget will include a "serious investment" in clean technologies, Freeland said without providing details, though she also promised fiscal restraint in the face of high inflation.
"Today, and in the years to come, Canada will either capitalize on the historic opportunity before us, or we will be left behind as the world’s democracies build the clean economy of the 21st century," Freeland said in a speech in Oshawa, Ontario. (Reporting by Steve Scherer Editing by Chris Reese)

Florida lawmakers passed a bill in February giving Governor Ron DeSantis effective control over a board that oversees municipal services and development in a special district that encompasses Walt Disney World resort.

A Delaware judge's ruling Friday set the stage for a dramatic springtime trial on whether Fox News bears financial responsibility for airing false allegations that a voting machine company rigged the 2020 presidential election against former President Donald Trump. Superior Court Judge Eric Davis ruled that it was “CRYSTAL clear” that none of the allegations made by Trump allies on Fox in the weeks after the election were true. Davis said it was up to a jury to decide whether Fox acted with actual malice in airing the claims and, if so, how much money Dominion is entitled to in damages.
