It's been 10 days since post-tropical storm Fiona tore a destructive trail through Atlantic Canada, and electricity still hasn't been restored to thousands of people. We look at many of those left in the dark and cold in Nova Scotia, and the toll it's taking. Just minutes after the polls closed in Quebec, the results were clear.

And hook, line, and stinker: the cheating allegations in a professional competition that have the fishing world reeling.
