Quebec is giving early childhood educators in public daycares a raise, starting in mid-November, as daycare staff continue to strike and protest across the province amidst negotiations of a new contract. "We have to admit, the current salary isn't attracting new educators into the system," said Treasury Board President Sonia LeBel, "and it's not contributing to retaining them either." Educators who work over 40 hours a week will benefit the most, with qualified workers — those holding a college

AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — As a poorly paid public school teacher, Khaled Jaber always needed a side hustle, working as a private tutor and using his car as a taxi to help pay the bills. For unexpected needs, such as medical expenses, he has had to borrow money from relatives. Somehow, the 44-year-old muddled through life, sustained by his love of teaching high school Arabic and the respect his job earned him in the community.

On its mud-and-blood surface, “The Last Duel” seems like a familiar slog. The film, directed by Ridley Scott, begins with all the expected medieval trappings: gory battlefields, imposing stone castles, the clop of horses.

But “The Last Duel" may be one of the only films where the director, himsel

Gerri Corcoran says Colin MacPhee has become like a son to her. But even before the Anglo Rustico, P.E.I., woman met the young man from Ontario, there was something connecting them — two years ago, MacPhee donated his stem cells to Corcoran to help her fight leukemia. Donations are usually anonymous, unless the donor and recipient want to meet each other. You have to wait a year to request a meeting, and Corcoran learned her donor was interested after that year had passed. "They gave me the cont
