After more than a year of campaigning by Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, it all comes down to Tuesday’s 2016 U.S. presidential election day.

The polls have fluctuated in each candidate’s favour; while some states have remained distinctly Democratic blue or Republican red, others are a tossup.

Here’s a look at where the candidates stand in the race to 270 electoral votes —; and a new job in the White House —; the day before it’s all over.

WINNIPEG —; A man who pleaded guilty in two high-profile sex attacks, including one that left a victim near death along the shores of a frigid Winnipeg river, suffers from fetal alcohol spectrum disorder and reads at a Grade 3 level, a court was told Monday.

The man, who cannot be named because he was 17 at the time of the attacks in 2014, also suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder due to sexual abuse he suffered as a child, reads a forensic psychology report entered into evidence.

ChangSha Night Net

Testing showed the man’s “full-scale IQ value falling below 70 — considered within an ‘extremely low’ range,” the report states.

The man pleaded guilty earlier this year to two counts of aggravated sexual assault. The Crown wants the man sentenced as an adult, and a four-day hearing on the issue started Monday.

A co-accused, Justin Hudson, 22, has also pleaded guilty to the same charges.

The two men happened upon a 16-year-old girl on the night of Nov. 7. They robbed her, repeatedly beat her, sexually assaulted her and stomped on her head.

She ended up in the Assiniboine River, crawled out 100 metres away before being attacked again with a hammer.

The girl was found by a passerby the next morning and later became an advocate for an inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women, however she can’t be named under a publication ban.

Hours after the first attack, the two co-accused came across a 23-year-old woman. She was also sexually assaulted and severely beaten, and spent three days in hospital with a concussion and severe facial injuries.

The younger co-accused told the psychologist he took part in the attacks because he was afraid his companion would attack him if he refused.

“From his viewpoint, (he) perceived a sense of ‘pressure’ to participate in the sexual assaultive behaviour … that likely in part reflects a vulnerability that FASD-affected individuals have toward negative peer influence,” the report states.

If he is sentenced as a youth, the man faces a maximum three-year sentence. As an adult, he could potentially face life in prison.

The psychologist noted the younger man has expressed remorse and guilt for the attacks, but remains a moderate-to-high risk to reoffend.

A couple from Petitcodiac, N.B. are taking their love of hockey to a whole other level, with plans to tie the knot this weekend at centre ice at the Moncton Coliseum.

The Moncton Coliseum is the home of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League’s Moncton Wildcats.

“We just wanted to it be different and completely out of the box,” said bride-to-be Jana McCully.

ChangSha Night Net

On Saturday, she and her fiance, Ryan Ogilvie will say their “I do’s” on the very rink where their love for each other, and for Canada’s favorite game, grew into a passion. The season ticket holders says it’s like a Canadian dream come true.

“When I first said it, I didn’t think she would go for it,” said Ogilvie, who suggested an ice rink wedding as a joke.

“I like hockey and I watch a little bit of it but it’s mostly for him,” McCully said. “He is my soul mate and my best friend and I have been incredibly happy since I met him, and he changed my life.”

There is no question, McCully is a good sport. For their engagement photos, Ogilvie taught McCully how to skate, something she hadn’t done in 15 years.

“He would not let me go to the engagement shoot unless I bought men’s skates, which don’t have a toe pick, and I cannot stop,” she said laughing at her less-than-stellar skating skills.

The couple even had special jerseys made up for the occasion, with their wedding date printed on the front and “bride” and “groom” on the backs.

Their wedding programs also look like authentic game tickets, and they designed a commemorative puck.

Their two-year-old son, Reid will be the ring bearer, and will carry a special, long-awaited sign for his dad, who just happens to be a Toronto Maple Leafs fan.

“Dad here comes your Stanley cup,” McCully said it will read.

She says roughly 150 people will take to the seats to cheer them on on their “game day.”

EDMONTON – The Alberta government says it will continue to cover the costs of textbooks and other incidentals for thousands of home-schooled students caught in the middle of a funding fight.

A spokesman for Education Minister David Eggen says parents who are having their children home-schooled through the Trinity Christian School Association can send their receipts to the government for reimbursement.

Parents of home-schooled children can get just over $800 reimbursed per year for items like textbooks.

The City of Saskatoon is proposing a 3.97 per cent property tax increase to cover an $8.1 million revenue shortfall in its 2017 preliminary budget, which was released Monday afternoon.

The increase would result in a homeowner paying $67.55 more a year in tax if their property is assessed at $325,000. More than half of that money would go toward snow and ice management, as well as road maintenance.

ChangSha Night Net

“When you look at the budget, it’s pretty basic,” Kerry Tarasoff, the city’s chief financial officer, said Monday to reporters.

“It’s snow and ice, it’s the road levy.”

The budget was presented at a governance and priority committee meeting in city hall’s council chambers Monday afternoon. City council is scheduled to deliberate the plan from Nov. 30 to Dec. 2.

READ MORE: Preliminary budget released ahead of Saskatoon election

In September, a preliminary budget based on the city’s “best estimates” was released ahead of the civic election. It projected a property tax increase of 3.89 per cent, however officials stressed at the time that the report was not final.

Monday’s proposed total city budget is $1.075 billion, up from $997 million in 2016. Operating expenditures supported by city taxes make up $463.4 million of the total preliminary budget, which is an increase of $18.4 million from 2016.

Transportation is the largest sector in the city’s general expenditures. Officials are proposing to spend almost $44 million specifically on road maintenance in 2017, an increase of roughly $4 million.

Tarasoff said the increase is part of the city’s Building Better Roads initiative focused on incrementally improving Saskatoon’s streets each year. He added that work will likely start to shift from the city’s major roadways.

“You’re going to see a lot of progress in 2017 on neighbourhood roads,” Tarasoff said.

“I think residents will start seeing that in front of door steps more than what they have in the past.”

READ MORE: Broadway Avenue businesses hope to bounce back as area construction wraps

Other proposed transportation expenses include roughly $14.3 million in snow and ice management for 2017, compared to $13.28 million in 2016’s budget. Street cleaning and sweeping is proposed to stay almost unchanged, at $3.78 million.

The largest single line item in the 2017 preliminary budget is the Saskatoon Police Service at $96 million, an increase of almost $2 million from 2016. Tarasoff said that number could rise, as police Chief Clive Weighill still has to propose his growth package, which is not included in the proposed budget.

Tarasoff said the proposed property tax increase could move up or down depending on the outstanding police requests and if council wishes to put extra money away to address gaps in infrastructure funding. However, he added that officials are cognizant “there is only one tax payer” to draw from.

“We’ve really pushed the administration hard to be as frugal as we could without affecting service levels,” Tarasoff said.

The city’s total projected debt for the end of 2016 is $338 million. The proposed budget accounts for another $22.6 million in borrowing in 2017.

Proposed capital spending up in 2017

The city is also planning to invest $261.4 million in capital projects in 2017, which is hard infrastructure like a bridge or sidewalk. The amount is a $32.7 million increase from the 2016 approved capital budget.

Utility projects make up roughly 40 per cent of 2017’s proposed capital investments. These include upgrades and maintenance to Saskatoon’s water treatment plant and wastewater treatment plant, as well as Saskatoon Light & Power upgrades.

Tarasoff said the increase is related to the fact that the city is trying to take advantage of financing from the federal government’s clean water and wastewater fund.

“When the federal government provides you funding … you usually have to match it,” Tarasoff said.

“As a result of using those funds, we match those funds and so all of a sudden you’re going to see our capital program go up.”

Officials are also planning on investing $59.63 million in transportation capital projects, which include replacing city buses and further developing its bus rapid transit plan.

Police say a six-month-old horse died of a possible heart attack after escaping during a break-in at a barn in Sunderland, Ont., while a second horse remained by the side of the dying foal throughout the night.

Durham Regional Police Sgt. Bill Calder said an unknown suspect or suspects broke into the barn on the rural property between 11:30 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. Sunday, on Concession Road 5 just west of Highway 7 in Brock Township.

Calder said the suspect then broke through a wired gate, a padlock and a locked door before entering the barn and allowing the horses to escape.

“It’s unfortunate how that fell apart like that. Obviously they weren’t probably intending to let the horse out but it’s kind of a casualty of the crime,” he said.

“At this point we don’t even think there was anything in the barn worth stealing.”

Calder said police are not yet sure how the horse died, but added that the horse collapsed and died suddenly.

“If they get spooked bad enough they’re prone to actually having heart attacks and that type of thing,” he said, adding the second horse remained by its side.

“It stayed in the same vicinity of the one that collapsed and died on the spot there.”

Calder said the owners of the horse were distraught after finding their dead horse collapsed in heavy brush on their property.

“For them to go out and find their young horse there deceased and the other one there right by it is very upsetting for them,” he said, adding the horse may have succumbed to exposure from the elements.

“It is terrible.”

The horse’s death comes after a spike in break-ins at out-buildings on rural properties —; where tools and machinery are being targeted in thefts.

Investigators are appealing to the public for information in the case and are warning residents to report suspicious activity and share video surveillance with police.

Calder said unfortunately there was no video surveillance in this case but police are hoping someone will come forward.

Anyone with new information is asked to contact Det-Const. McMaster of the North Division Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 2675 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

    Peeks has now been inspired to keep up with daily physical activity. “If I’m active, I’m able to avoid some diseases and some forms of cancers potentially,  if i’m smart and make the right choices now.”

Tomorrow should start out sunny with some high clouds moving in midday associated with an upper level warm front pushing through the region before it clears out later in the afternoon.

The mercury will push further into double digits through the day with a southerly wind around 20 to 30 km/h helping to mix down even warmer air, helping us hit a high in the mid-teens.

Some high clouds will move through tomorrow with a daytime high in the teens.

With one day to go before Americans cast their ballots, the final opinion polls suggest the race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton is still a tight one – making election night a perfect setup for waging bets.

Online betting sites from around the world are getting in on the action, with some saying the Nov. 8 election stands to be the biggest-drawing political event ever.

ChangSha Night Net

Betfair, a U.K.-based online forum (that isn’t available to Canadians), told Reuters that by Sunday, roughly $130 million USD (or $173.8 million CAD) had been wagered on who will become the next U.S. president.

June’s Brexit referendum, by comparison, saw $159 million USD ($212.5 million CAD) laid down while the 2012 U.S. presidential race only brought in roughly $50 million USD ($66.8 million CAD), a spokeswoman told Reuters.

But bettors can put their money down on much more than just the coveted presidency.

Gamblers on sites like Manitoba’s Play Now or Ireland’s Paddy Power can place bets on (all odds according to Paddy Power):

Whether Trump will sever ties with the Republican party before the end of the month (4-to-1 odds)Whether Bernie Sanders will form a new party before the end of the year (9-to-1 odds)Whether Trump will form a new party before the end of the year (9-to-1 odds)Whether Trump will come away from election night without a single state (250-to-1 odds)Whether electoral college votes will tie for Trump and Clinton (40-to-1 odds)And whether James Comey will still be the FBI director in 2018 (“no” has 8-to-11 odds, “yes” is even)

Paddy Power hasn’t forgotten Trump’s promise to keep us “in suspense” about his intention to concede the election should he lose. Bettors can wage on a six different time slots up to and including “before midnight” and “after midnight.”

The latest Reuters/Ipsos poll showed Clinton with a five percentage point lead over Trump in the national survey — 44 per cent to 39 per cent. Races in swing states of Florida and North Carolina, however, shifted from Clinton’s control to being too close to call.

The final CBS News poll, meanwhile, showed a four-point spread with Clinton with leading 45 per cent to Trump’s 41 per cent.

A would-be bettor will probably want to research more than just the latest polls. For one, different online betting sites offer different odds (Bodog, a Canadian Vegas-style site, is offering -550 odds on a Clinton win and +375 odds on a Trump win).

Polling aggregators like Real Clear Politics and Five Thirty Eight can help put all the data into context so the political gamblers can make safe bets.

Beyond its primary calculation indicating Clinton has a 65.5 per cent chance of winning, fivethirtyeight长沙桑拿 offers a list of “crazy and not-so-crazy” scenarios that could arise from tomorrow’s vote.

READ MORE: How exactly do Americans elect their president?

Their analysis indicates a 1.2 per cent chance the electoral college will end without either candidate getting the necessary 270 votes to win, and a mere 0.8 per cent chance Trump and Clinton will tie for electoral college votes (each candidate gets 269).

The most likely scenario listed in the potentially crazy outcomes is that Trump wins at least one state President Obama won in 2012; he apparently has an 87.4 per cent chance of that happening. On the other side, Clinton has only a 65.3 per cent chance of winning a state Republican nominee Mitt Romney won in  the last election.
