No beans: No winning tickets were sold for Friday night’s $ 43.9 million Lotto Max jackpot. This means that the jackpot for the next draw on November 24 will increase to around $ 50 million, and there will also be two Maxmillions prizes of $ 1 million each up for grabs.
No, really, no beans: A container shortage at the Port of Vancouver is slowing Canadian exports of lentils and peas, the latest wave in a phenomenon that has disrupted trade. Companies are rushing to get the steel boxes to Asia so that consumer goods made in factories there can be shipped to North America in time for the Christmas shopping season.
