The U.S. and President Donald Trump has slapped a 15 per cent tariff on all steel and aluminum it receives from Canada, and if that rises to 25 per cent as has been threatened, it will cost more for the city to build its bridges and buildings with steel from the U.S. “We are trying to estimate a worst-case scenario,” said city treasurer Anna Lisa Barbon. “If there is a significant tariff increase, what impact would it have?” While the tariff is on steel sh...

That amounts to a 24 per cent increase on the existing total and would give London — which now has about 3.4 million households — a n...

Earlier this summer, Yoshua Bengio, the McGill-based Artificial Intelligence pioneer and one of the world’s leading authorities on neural networks and machine-learning, added his name to a growing global list of experts and laboratories in the field that are pledging to have no role in the creation of what are called “lethal autonomous weapons” (LAWs). The signatories’ premise is as benign as it is unsound: that machines must never be given the authority t...

It was announced on August 31 that the capital's new east-west railway would open in autumn 2019 rather than December this year. Mr Khan previously revealed that he only learned of Crossrail's delay two days before the announcement. The mayor was asked on BBC Radio L...

Just weeks into a new school year, Western University and its roughly 1,650 faculty members are locked in a contractdispute, with faculty taking a strike vote among its members.

A large group of Uber Eats drivers blocked a road in east London today as they staged a protest over pay. Protesters said it was a spontaneous show of action against the company, as drivers claimed rates for every delivery had been reduced without it being agreed first. An Uber Eats spokesman said the firm has made changes to its payment structure in London in response to feedback from couriers. "As we transition to the new system, we're introducing minimu...
