SAG-AFTRA Election: Matthew Modine Threatens To Sue Fran Drescher For “Slanderous” Accusations

  SAG-AFTRA Election: Matthew Modine Threatens To Sue Fran Drescher For “Slanderous” Accusations EXCLUSIVE, UPDATED with UFS statement: With just one week to go in the SAG-AFTRA election, Matthew Modine has accused Fran Drescher of defamation and threatened legal action if she doesn’t issue a public apology by Friday. “Your defamation of Mr. Modine, your opposing candidate for SAG-AFTRA president, at the eleventh hour of the current election, is not only disgraceful and repugnant, but damaging to Mr. Modine’s professional reputation and career and hurtful to him personally and financially,” said Robert Allen, attorney for Modine’s MembershipFirst slate, in an email sent to Drescher on Thursday.

Canadians are be heading back to the polls on Sept. 20.

And we're off! On Aug. 15, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau called a snap federal election.

Election day is Sept. 20 and CBC News will be covering all the issues leading up to that date.

It has only been two years since the last federal election, but the governing Liberal Party of Canada is currently a minority government. Most political scientists suggest the party is hoping to secure a majority.

So far, some hot button issues in B.C. include the Fairy Creek logging protests, affordable housing and calling an election while thousands of people were displaced during one of the province's worst wildfire seasons on record.

Parties submit final candidate lists to Elections Canada with more women running than ever before

  Parties submit final candidate lists to Elections Canada with more women running than ever before All of the main federal parties have filed paperwork with Elections Canada detailing who will be running for them in the coming election, closing the door on any further changes to the candidate list before Canadians cast their ballots on Sept. 20.   All the major parties will be running a nearly full slate of 338 candidates, with the Liberals and the NDP telling CBC News that they have filed papers with Elections Canada for a full slate.

Meanwhile, a recent poll has revealed growing anger among Canadians about voting during the fourth wave of a pandemic.

Although the number of seats in B.C. doesn't rival those in Ontario and Quebec, the province does hold enough influence to make it worth the parties' attention.

On Vancouver Island, the Greens hope to maintain their two seats in a region where the NDP dominated last federal election. And of course federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh is aiming to keep his seat in Burnaby South.

Want to know which candidate is running where? Below is a list of all the candidates for each federal riding in B.C.
