  • Weapons are loaded onto a CF-18 Hornet fighter jet on November 4, 2009 near El Centro, CaliforniaCanada is deploying six CF-18 fighter jets to Eastern Europe as part of NATO's response to the worsening crisis in Ukraine, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced Thursday. Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Ukraine was on the brink of civil war, stoking fears of outright Russian intervention.

Harper condemned what he called "Russia's illegal occupation of Ukraine and its ongoing aggressive military provocation."

  • Insight: In green car race, Toyota adds muscle with fuel-cell launch

  • Fil ephoto of a hydrogen nozzle plugged into a Toyota Fuel Cell Hybrid Vehicle during the Toyota Advanced Technologies media briefing in TokyoBy Norihiko Shirouzu, Paul Lienert and Yoko Kubota TOYOTA CITY, Japan/IRVINE, California (Reuters) - In 1997, Toyota caught its competitors by surprise with the revolutionary Prius, the first commercially successful gasoline-electric hybrid car.

  • BlackBerry's meltdown sparks start-up boom in Canada's Silicon Valley

  • The Aeryon Scout, a small drone developed by start-up Aeryon Labs is pictured in WaterlooBy Sayantani Ghosh, Ashutosh Pandey and Euan Rocha (Reuters) - The troubles at BlackBerry Ltd, which fired more than half its staff and lost more than 90 percent of its market value as consumers shunned its smart phones, might have spelled disaster for the company's hometown of Waterloo, Ontario. More than 450 start-ups opened for business in the twin cities of Waterloo and Kitchener last year, more than four times the number begun in 2009, according to Communitech, a local company that advises them.

"For those who are trying to get a new tech business off the ground, get it funded, and not get lost in the shadow of Silicon Valley, Waterloo can be the best place to get your company on the map," said Sean McCabe, vice-president of engineering at drone manufacturer Aeryon Labs Inc in Waterloo.
