Understanding, questioning enforcement: Local businesses weigh in on B.C. wine ban

  Understanding, questioning enforcement: Local businesses weigh in on B.C. wine ban Alberta consumers and B.C. businesses are being used as “pawns” in a provincial trade dispute, an industry group charged Tuesday, in reaction to news of a ban on bringing B.C. wines to the province. Mark von Schellwitz, vice-president for Western Canada at Restaurants Canada, said the move announced by Premier Rachel Notley sets a precedent he described as “dangerous and costly for small businesses and consumers.”“I think, as a country, we’re trying to strike down domestic and international trade barriers, and this decision certainly moves us in completely the wrong direction,” said von Schellwitz.

  Rachel Weisz: 'James Bond should never become a Jane' Rachel Weisz: 'James Bond should never become a Jane'Daniel Craig's actress wife Rachel Weisz has urged 007 fans to stop calling for a Jane Bond because she thinks the idea of a female taking over from her man is a bad idea.

Farrow went on to tweet, "To presume I invented this story & convinced myself of it is no less insulting than calling me a liar. I’ve consistently stated the truth for 25 years, I won’t stop now.

In 2014, Farrow penned an open letter detailing Allen's alleged abuse in the Times and a similar op-ed for the Los Angeles Times linking the #MeToo movement to Allen last December.

In January, Farrow sat down with CBS This Morning's Gayle King to discuss her alleged sexual abuse at the hands of Allen. Farrow explained how Allen took her into an attic crawlspace in her mother's Connecticut home and, as she said, instructed her to lie down on her stomach and play with a toy train.

While she was doing that, she claims, Allen sat behind her and touched her inappropriately, telling King exactly where on her body he touched her. Allen suggested at the time that Farrow had changed her story because she was coached by her mother, who months earlier had discovered that Allen had been having an affair with her adopted daughter Soon-yi Previn.
