OTTAWA — Respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV, appears to be slowing in Ontario, the province's health minister said Friday, although she warned that influenza was expected to ramp up. A combination of RSV, the flu and COVID-19 have been putting immense strain on pediatric hospitals across Ontario, with many having to cancel surgeries to accommodate the influx of patients. Health Minister Sylvia Jones said that while RSV seems to be somewhat easing, the province is still heading into influenza se
VICTORIA — Plans to make room for patients with respiratory illnesses by cancelling surgeries are in place in British Columbia hospitals, says Health Minister Adrian Dix, as parents worry about long emergency room waits with sick children.

Parents and the Opposition have decried lengthy waits at emergency rooms across B.C. for children suffering serious respir
OTTAWA — Before Justin Trudeau became the first prime minister to sign off on invoking the Emergencies Act, he says he took a brief moment to think: "What if I don't sign it?" Trudeau detailed some of his thinking in the moments leading up to that final call as he testified Friday before the Public Order Emergency Commission, which is examining his decision to declare a public order emergency to clear last winter's "Freedom Convoy" protest blockades. The prime minister said the moment of reflect

OTTAWA — The Liberals say their proposed definition of a prohibited assault-style firearm applies only to guns that belong on the battlefield. But Conservative MPs are continuing to insist the federal move would outlaw many ordinary hunting rifles and shotguns.

The measure, introduced Tuesday during clause-

The RCMP wanted to keep the Emergencies Act in place for weeks and worried that revoking emergency powers would "send a powerful message to protesters," the inquiry reviewing the government's decision to invoke the never-before-used legislation heard Thursday. In speaking notes prepared for RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki for a Feb. 20 meeting with federal cabinet ministers and senior security officials, she argued against revoking the legislation, which had granted officers emergency powers.

Italy's only Black lawmaker suspended himself from his left-wing party on Thursday after his family was accused of mismanaging funds and exploiting staff at two associations meant to help immigrants. The growing scandal has dealt a severe political blow to Aboubakar Soumahoro, Italy's best-known activist for migrants' rights who only entered parliament last month after winning a seat in a national election for his Green and Left party. Soumahoro has denied any personal wrongdoing and neither his wife nor his mother-in-law have been formally charged over allegations that they failed to pay workers and siphoned off funds at two cooperatives they managed.

The decommissioned pipelines that once carried natural gas from Sable Island to mainland Nova Scotia are being considered as potential routes for the cable to carry electricity from offshore wind farms. Simply Blue Group, an Irish company promoting floating wind turbines in Atlantic Canada, recently opened an office in Halifax. It is considering the former natural gas pipeline route as a cable pathway. "It's too early to tell, but most likely a preferred option in the sense that that's a known a
Premier Tim Houston said his government will not back down after a decision to cap electricity prices led Nova Scotia Power to have its credit rating downgraded. The utility's parent company, Emera, warned a weaker credit rating will lead to increased costs to borrow money. It said that could ultimately result in higher prices for customers. Rating agency S&P Global announced the downgrade on Monday, citing the province's move to limit power-rate increases to 1.8 per cent this year and next. The
