President Donald Trump is considering overhauling his White House staff and bringing back top campaign strategists, frustrated by what he views as his team's inability to contain the burgeoning crisis involving alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election. As he mulls outside reinforcements to his operation, Trump returned late Saturday from his nine-day journey to a White House seemingly in crisis mode, with a barrage of reports hitting close to the Oval Office and involving Jared Kushner, his son-in-law and influential adviser. A rally planned Thursday in Iowa was postponed due to "an unforeseen change" in Trump's schedule.

Nunavut's only girls group home is set to reopen next month, with a new organization at the helm. Atlantic Youth, which has operated a boys home in Cambridge Bay since 2014, is in the final stages of hiring and training workers for the the eight-bed Illagiitugut Girls Home. Nunavut's Department of Family Services temporarily suspended services at the facility in September after the contract with the former operator expired.

Unfortunately for human history buffs in Atlantic Canada, a decision by the previous federal government to scrap a "state-of-the-art" archaeology lab in Nova Scotia just won't go away, despite hopes that a change in government would bury it for good. In 2012, Parks Canada announced it would merge six archaeology labs from across the country into one, and consolidate their collections in a new facility in Gatineau, Que. just outside of Ottawa. At the time, Mi'kmaq and Acadian groups — as well as numerous academics and researchers from Atlantic Canada — expressed their concerns with the decision, especially given that the custom-built lab in Dartmouth, N.S., had just opened three years earlier.
By Robin Pomeroy CANNES, France (Reuters) - "The Square", a Swedish movie about the curator of a museum filled with grotesquely pretentious conceptual art, beat stiff competition to win the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival on Sunday. Critics hailed the movie by writer-director Ruben Ostlund as "high-wire cinema" that veers between comedy and thriller with moments of pure surrealism, though some said it could easily have shed part of its 2 hours and 22 minutes running time. Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar, who headed the jury of nine people that included Hollywood stars Will Smith and Jessica Chastain, said the film was about "the dictatorship of being politically correct".
