The Ontario government has used the notwithstanding clause to restore parts of the Election Finances Act that had been declared unconstitutional. A bill invoking the clause passed Monday and means third parties can only spend $600,000 in the 12 months before an election is called. Opponents say the ruling Progressive Conservatives are trying to silence criticism ahead of next summer's provincial vote, while the government argues the bill is necessary to protect elections from outside influence.

OTTAWA — A new study in England suggests the Pfizer-BioNTech and Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines are extremely good at keeping people from ending up in the hospital with COVID-19, even after just one dose. Public Health England says it looked at the records of 14,000 people with confirmed cases of COVID-19 due to the Delta variant between April 12 and June 4. It found two doses of either vaccine were more than 90 per cent effective at keeping people out of the hospital. After one dose, Pfizer was 94

U.S. and Canadian officials are set to meet Tuesday to discuss how to eventually lift pandemic-related border restrictions between the two countries, but no immediate action is expected, sources briefed on the matter told Reuters on Monday. U.S. and Canadian business leaders have voiced increasing concern about the ban on non-essential travel at land borders because of COVID-19 that was imposed in March 2020 and has been renewed on a monthly basis since. The measures, which also apply to the U.S.-Mexico border, do not affect trade or other essential travel.
TORONTO — Ontario's Progressive Conservatives employed a rarely used legislative power on Monday to pass a bill limiting third-party election advertising amid shouts of "shame" from the opposition. The government used the notwithstanding clause to pass Bill 307, which reintroduced amendments to the Election Finances Act that a judge struck down as unconstitutional last week. The clause allows legislatures to override portions of the charter for a five-year term. The opposition parties argued the
When the Chinese-made Sinopharm vaccine was offered to Katie Gibson in Abu Dhabi, there was no doubt in her mind she should take it. The 36-year-old teacher originally from Calgary said she and her husband didn't hesitate to take the only COVID-19 vaccine they could get in the United Arab Emirates at the time. "It's available to us [so] let's just get it," she recalled thinking. "A vaccine is a vaccine." After two years abroad, Gibson said her family of four desperately wants to get home this su

Many residents in Kiselyovsk, a Siberian mining town, say the pollution from the open-pit coal mines nearby harms their quality of life.
On his first day as a corrections officer at a Toronto jail, Glendon Thomas was barred from entering. Back in 2004 as a Black man with cornrows, Thomas says staff didn't believe he worked there and questioned if he was an inmate. "That was the first step in breaking me," Thomas told CBC News in an interview. Desperately wanting to excel at the steady Ontario Public Service (OPS) job — under the Ministry of the Solicitor General — Thomas says he tried his best to conform. He cut his hair short an
The average selling price of a Canadian home was $688,000 last month, a figure that has risen by more than 38 per cent in the past year. The Canadian Real Estate Association, which represents real estate agents across the country, said in a press release Tuesday that while prices are still up sharply from a year ago, the gains appear to be moderating. The $688,000 figure is down from $696,000 in April and just over $716,000 in March, which suggests that while comparisons to the early days of COV
Iranians elect a new president on Friday in a race dominated by hardline candidates close to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, with popular anger over economic hardship and curbs on freedoms set to keep many pro-reform Iranians at home. The front-runner in a carefully vetted field is Ebrahim Raisi, a hardline judge seen by analysts and insiders as representing the security establishment at its most fearsome. But the authorities' hopes for a high turnout and a boost to their legitimacy may be disappointed, as official polls suggest only about 40% of over 59 million eligible Iranians will vote.
A year ago, you could buy a standard two-by-four for about $3 in Whitehorse. Today that same piece of wood is around $10. The cost of lumber is soaring, and it's hitting those in the business of building. "The challenges really are widespread, you know, like everything from being able to find projects and clientele that are willing to proceed in spite of the lumber prices being what they are," said Jeff Erasmus, a contractor in Whitehorse. "Logistically, there are some substantial challenges in

Twenty-eight Chinese air force aircraft, including fighters and nuclear-capable bombers, entered Taiwan's air defence identification zone (ADIZ) on Tuesday, the island's government said, the largest reported incursion to date. While there was no immediate comment from Beijing, the news comes after the Group of Seven leaders issued a joint statement on Sunday scolding China for a series of issues and underscored the importance of peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, comments China condemned as "slander". Chinese-claimed Taiwan has complained over the last few months of repeated missions by China's air force near the self-ruled island, concentrated in the southwestern part of its air defence zone near the Taiwan-controlled Pratas Islands.
