'Caucasians' T-shirt SalesThe Cleveland, Ohio-based designer of the controversial "Caucasians" T-shirt is reporting a spike in sales after a member of A Tribe Called Red was slammed as "racist" for wearing it. Brian Kirby of... Shelf Life Clothing says that demand for the shirt has grown significantly since Ian "Deejay NDN" Campeau found himself at the centre of a campaign to boycott the group's appearance at Ottawa's Westfest music festival last month. A letter sent to festival organizers took issue with their decision to book a "divisive band just asking for trouble."

The U.S. agency says the rating reflects Quebec's ability to minimize... the impact of recent and ongoing deficiits, which have accumulated since 2008, on the province's large debt burden.
