Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for Windsor and Essex County for Monday and Tuesday. The weather authority warns temperatures will be near 31 C, with humidex values in the low forties on Tuesday. Overnight, lows are expected to be about 21 C, which will offer little relief. Environment Canada said the hot temperatures can cause deteriorating air quality. The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit has issued a heat warning based off of Environment Canada's information, warning residents to
Perhaps beavers need holidays too, from all that dam maintenance — especially on Canada Day. Officials say a major washout on the Alaska Highway in B.C. over the holiday weekend was caused by a broken beaver dam that sent a torrent of water through the area, sweeping away a section of the highway in northern B.C. and causing major disruptions for travellers and truckers before a detour opened to traffic on Monday. "There was, you know, quite a bit of water there," said George Smith, a manager wi

MONTREAL — Quebec Immigration Minister Jean Boulet on Monday welcomed Ottawa's decision to relocate about 100 asylum seekers who have crossed irregularly into the province — but he said that wasn't enough. The province says its ability to house and care for would-be refugees is being strained, as about 13,350 people have entered Canada irregularly between January and May, mostly through Roxham Road, a rural road leading from the United States into Quebec. Ottawa needs to relocate more people to
In the wake of multiple suspensions and ongoing investigations, the Thunder Bay Police Service (TBPS) in northwestern Ontario will have a new interim leader. Supt. Dan Taddeo has been appointed acting police chief, according to a news release Monday afternoon.

OTTAWA — The Conservative Party of Canada raised the most money of any federal party in 2021, bringing in $26.4 million in donations during a tumultuous year that ended with an election loss and speculation about the end of Erin O'Toole's leadership. Audited financial statements filed with Elections Canada show that's just shy of $6 million more than the party raised in 2020, and the number of people who gave money to the Tories -- 95,000 -- was up by about 5,000 year-over-year. Justin Trudeau's

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas voters have said no to him twice over the past four years. But Kris Kobach is nonetheless betting that this can be the year he makes a political comeback. His losses, including a 2018 defeat that handed the governor's office in this Republican-leaning state to a Democrat, might end other political careers. But Kobach, who built a national reputation as an immigration hard-liner while Kansas secretary of state, is now aiming for the state attorney general's office. He f

The four-and-half minute video shows several people riding atop Line 3 rail cars as trains speed between stops. There are also shots that appear to have been record

The pressure on the province's college of physicians to make it easier to access the abortion pill is ramping up, as hundreds of doctors have signed an open letter calling for the removal of several restrictions that are in place in Quebec, but not in the rest of Canada. The abortion pill has been available and free in Quebec since 2018. But those in the province seeking to end their pregnancies face additional hurdles to access the abortion pill, also known as a medical abortion. Unlike elsewhe

From a very young age, Shawn Hercules knew he was "different." He also knew that he wanted to "impact populations" and "work with underrepresented groups … and people who are not able to advocate for themselves." Hercules — a postdoctoral researcher at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, developing novel prevention tools for women at high risk for breast cancer — says he is all about being authentic and wants to encourage others, especially young people, to be the same.
