Hatred appears to be what fueled a young Japanese man who went on a stabbing rampage, killing 19 people Tuesday at a facility for the mentally disabled where he had been fired. When he was done, Satoshi Uematsu, 26, had left dead or injured nearly a third of the almost 150 patients at the facility in
The parents of Shea Fright, a Winnipeg woman who was killed by an impaired driver on Highway 207 last month, are speaking publicly about the loss of their daughter and urging motorists not to drink and drive.

American fishermen are digging in for a fight over a proposal to shut down the vestiges of the U.S. harvest of shark fins, prized for soup and traditional medicine in Asia, and send a message to the rest of the world. A bill backed by Sen. Cory Booker, a New Jersey Democrat, and others promises to ban the sale and possession of shark fins to ensure U.S. fishermen and seafood dealers no longer participate in the global fin trade. "America can become a global leader by shutting down the domestic market for shark fins," Booker said.
"I told him to look for all the exits if any kind of shooting would go off, to hit the floor, find a table and get out of the way ... because I thought about the people in Orlando. The shooting at a venue tucked in a strip mall also left 14-year-old Sean Archilles dead, and a state and its governor grappling with another tragedy. The massacre at Orlando's Pulse nightclub last month killed 49 and wounded dozens of others.
Memory loss may not always be the first warning sign that dementia is brewing — changes in behaviour or personality might be an early clue. Researchers on Sunday outlined a syndrome called "mild behavioural impairment" that may be a harbinger of Alzheimer's or other dementias, and proposed a checklist of symptoms to alert doctors and families. "Historically those symptoms have been written off as a psychiatric issue, or as just part of aging," said Dr. Zahinoor Ismail of the University of Calgary, who presented the checklist at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference in Toronto.

Fires crews are battling to constrain the massive wildfires currently blazing in California. Mountainous areas north of Los Angeles have been ablaze since Saturday, threatening up to 2,000 homes. 1,500 homes in the Santa Clarita area have been evacuated. The flames are currently sweeping through an area of 22,000 acres. A combination of blistering high and low humidity first sparked the fire on Friday in the Sand Canyon area. Strong winds then fanned the flames and spread smoke, blackening the sky over Los Angeles. Hundreds of firefighters are tackling the blaze, along with 30 water-dropping helicopters and flame retardant-dropping planes.

The world's first round-the-world flight to be powered solely by the sun's energy made history on Tuesday as it landed in Abu Dhabi, where it first took off on an epic 25,000-mile (40, 000-kilometre ) journey that began more than a year ago. Since its March 2015 take off, the Swiss-engineered Solar Impulse 2 has made 16 stops across the world without using a drop of fuel to demonstrate that using the plane's clean technologies on the ground can halve the world's energy consumption, save natural resources and improve quality of life. After landing the plane, pilot Bertrand Piccard was greeted outside the cockpit by his Solar Impulse partner and fellow pilot Andre Borschberg.

Dacko said millions of Canadians travel past Hamilton every year in search of cheaper flights in Buffalo and Niagara Falls, N.Y.

Jonathan Galgay, the St. John's city councillor whose ward includes Long's Hill, said the city frequently gets complaints about harassment in the area, which is frequented by sex workers.

The transformation of Saint John's waterfront into a village of shipping containers to host the Area 506 music and cultural festival on New Brunswick Day weekend is well underway. About 70 shipping containers were dropped off at Long Wharf over the weekend and moved into place for the site design that pays tribute to its host city. "The shipping container village is one of those things that, we said, if there's one cool kind of aesthetic thing that was true to the city, being a port city … wouldn't this be a cool thing for Saint John to do," said Ray Gracewood, one of the organizers.
One day she is walking the fairways for the first time with the LPGA Tour's best at the Women's Canadian Open in Vancouver as a fresh-faced 14-year-old, and less than four years later she is a major champion, beating world No. 1 Lydia Ko in a playoff at the KPMG Women's PGA Championship. With her remarkable victory at age 18 at the Sahalee Country Club in early June, Henderson scratched a 48-year itch for Canada. Sandra Post was the last Canadian female to win a golf major when she claimed the 1968 Women's PGA Championship.

In the grim darkness of a zombie-infested future, Canada is the only hope. This is the setup for Death Road to Canada, a just-launched video game by a tiny team with somewhat unusual resumés for indie games developers. Death Road is a mix of old-school pixel art, moody lighting, twitch-based reactions and off-the-wall humour. It features moose-riding Mounties fighting off zombies with hockey sticks as well as a wide swatch of recruitable characters: from a dog that can learn how to drive the team's Winnebago to Elvis himself.

Some residents of Montreal's St-Henri neighbourhood say the round-the-clock construction work on the Turcot Interchange could push them to move if it continues unabated. Yves Lavoie, who lives on St-Jacques Street, said the main issue for him is heavy trucks rolling down neighbourhood streets at all hours, often on streets they're not supposed to be taking. Lavoie said he's been in touch with Dominique Anglade, the Liberal MNA who represents St-Henri, and she's expressed concern about what's happening.
