Voting Now Open for Kraft Hockeyville Contest

St. Laurent has made it to the top 10, and now they have a chance to make it to the top two!

The Manitoban hockey club is asking for your help in getting to the top two spot, where they have a chance to win $100,000 for arena upgrades.
Greg Morgan, VP of the St. Laurent minor hockey committee, says being in the top 10 means they automatically get $25,000, so it is already an amazing feeling.
They are the only Manitoban team nominated. Voting is open now, and goes until 11pm on Monday.
Manitoba PCs Promise PST Cut
Manitoba's Progressive Conservative leader has launched the party's election campaign by invoking Albert Einstein and promising to roll back the provincial sales tax hike.

Brian Pallister told about 300 supporters in Winnipeg on Saturday that Einstein said problems cannot be solved in the same state of mind in which they were created.

Pallister says Manitoba needs a new state of mind and his party will bring it.

The party also promises to improve reading skills for children, reduce ambulance fees and spend one billion dollars a year on infrastructure
Nissan Leaf Recall
Nissan is recalling more than 47,000 Leaf electric cars in the U-S and Canada because of a possible malfunctioning relay in the braking system.

Nissan says very cold temperatures could cause the relay to fail, forcing the driver to put more pressure on the brake pedal to slow or stop the car.

The recall covers Nissan Leafs from the 2014, '15, and '16 model years.

A total of 679 of the vehicles were sold in Canada

Final Report Expected in European Airline Crash
Authorities in France today will table the final report into an especially-horrifying jetliner crash that killed all 150 people aboard.

It happened almost a year ago when co-pilot Andreas Lubitz locked the captain out of the cockpit, then deliberately flew the Germanwings jet into a mountain in the French Alps.
Many of the victims' families are angry that Lubitz was allowed to fly after he saw more than 40 doctors over five years for severe depression.

It is expected the recommendations in today's report will try to strike a balance between flight security and medical privacy

Daylight Savings Time
In case you forgot, today is the beginning of daylight savings time.

If you've not done so already, turn your clocks and watches ahead one hour.

Among the parts of Canada that don't observe the time change is Saskatchewan, which is on central standard time year-round.

The return to standard time will happen on November 6th.
