MONTREAL — Early election results have the Liberals leading in Quebec after a race dominated by frequent appeals to Quebec nationalism. Shortly after 11 p.m., about 90 minutes after polls closed, the Liberals were elected or leading in 36 ridings in the province, while the Bloc was elected or leading in 29. The Liberals, who are projected to win the most seats across the country, had entered the election with 35 seats in the province, compared with 32 for the Bloc. The Conservatives, who had 10
CBC News projects that a trio of Conservatives have been re-elected in Chatham-Kent and Sarnia-Lambton ridings. Conservative Dave Epp is projected to win a second term in Chatham-Kent–Leamington, a Tory stronghold since 2006. As of 11 p.m., with 115 out of 272 polls reporting, Epp clinched 40 per cent of the vote. The next most popular candidate, Liberal Greg Hetherington, had 30 per cent of the ballots counted. In Sarnia-Lambton, Marilyn Gladu is projected to win for a third time. With 42 out o
Liberal Wayne Long has been projected the winner in Saint John-Rothesay, a riding that's been historically close but consecutively red. Long's early lead continued to increase Monday night, with the gap between him and Conservative candidate Mel Norton widening as the night went on. A few hours after the polls closed, CBC projected victory for Long, his third in federal politics. At O'Leary's pub in uptown Saint John, Long struggled to speak over cheers of "Go, Long, go." "I think people see how
In Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole concession speech after the 2021 election turned in the Liberals favour for a minority government, he focused on Canada's "division" while teasing that he intends to stay on as leader of the party.
DALLAS (AP) — A San Antonio doctor who said he performed an abortion in defiance of a new Texas law all but dared supporters of the state's near-total ban on the procedure to try making an early example of him by filing a lawsuit — and by Monday, two people obliged. Former attorneys in Arkansas and Illinois filed separate state lawsuits Monday against Dr. Alan Braid, who in a weekend Washington Post opinion column became the first Texas abortion provider to publicly reveal he violated the law th
TORONTO — Green Party Leader Annamie Paul has lost her third bid for a seat in Toronto Centre as early results show the party leading in two other ridings. Paul had seen a swell of support in last year's byelection, when she drew 33 per cent of the vote and came in second behind Liberal Marci Ien. But that support appeared to deflate today, with Paul appearing to finish fourth. Toronto Centre is considered a Liberal stronghold, and the federal Greens have yet to elect a candidate in Ontario.

MALLORYTOWN LANDING – The first ever Paddle Poker Run was a splash this past weekend. The rain held off on Saturday for the more than 70 paddlers who came out and launched their participant-owned kayaks, canoes and other paddle crafts from the shoreline at Brown's Bay for the inaugural Paddle Poker Run hosted by the Township of Front of Yonge. "This event was designed to get people out and enjoying the river in a healthy, safe and fun way," said Leslie MacPherson, a member of the organizing comm
The Canadian dollar strengthened against its U.S. counterpart in Asian trading on Tuesday as oil prices rose and a projected election win for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberal party reassured investors that economic support would continue. Trudeau's Liberals were on track to win the Canadian election, the CBC and CTV television networks projected as results trickled in, but they looked set to fall short of their goal for a majority win. "This does look like a decisive win for the Liberals that essentially preserves the status quo and ensures that the fiscal spending plans that have supported the economy for the last year and half are likely to continue," said Karl Schamotta, chief market strategist at Cambridge Global Payments.
More than 6,000 Haitians and other migrants have been removed from an encampment in a Texas border town, according to U.S. officials. While many are facing deportation and being sent to detention centers, some are beginning new lives in the United States.
British prime minister Boris Johnson once worried that his friendliness with Donald Trump would leave him out in the cold when Democrat Joe Biden took over the White House. Instead, he can expect a warm welcome in Washington on Tuesday, as the trans-Atlantic leaders meet for wide-ranging talks intended to deepen ties that are expected to focus on security, climate and economic regulation in the run-up to Britain hosting a major environmental conference at the end of October. It is a moment Johnson's team regards as a triumph: validation that "global Britain" can thrive on the world stage after its divorce last year from the European Union.
TOKYO (AP) — Guinness World Records has certified two Japanese sisters as the world’s oldest living identical twins at 107, in an announcement Monday coinciding with Respect for the Aged Day, a national holiday in Japan. Umeno Sumiyama and Koume Kodama were born the third and fourth of 11 siblings on Shodoshima island in western Japan on Nov. 5, 1913. They were separated after elementary school, when Kodama was sent to work as a maid in Oita on Japan’s southern main island of Kyushu. She later m
After a night of back and forth leads between the Liberal and Conservative candidates, the CBC decision desk is projecting Jake Stewart to be the winner of Miramichi-Grand Lake. Liberal candidate Lisa Harris started out ahead Monday night, then Conservative Stewart built a sizeable lead —reaching 1,700 votes — then saw it drop significantly again. But a little after 1 a.m. Tuesday, the CBC decision desk projected Stewart to be the winner. Harris had already conceded to Stewart a short while befo
The Latest on the U.N. General Assembly (all times local): ___ UNITED NATIONS -- Pakistan’s foreign minister says Afghanistan’s new Taliban rulers should understand that if they want recognition and assistance in rebuilding the war-battered country “they have to be more sensitive and more receptive to international opinion and norms.” Shah Mahmood Qureshi said Monday evening that countries are watching to see how things evolve in Afghanistan before considering recognition. He says, “I don’t thin
Canadians went to the polls on Monday to decide whether to keep the Liberals in government or choose an alternative. Here's what a handful of young voters waiting outside two polling stations in downtown Toronto had to say about what was compelling them to vote. “Every election has different issues, obviously these ones are pertaining to the times, to the pandemic and immigration issues as well, and those are issues that are important to me, so I'm pretty excited to have a voice.” Biggest issues
OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma scheduled seven executions Monday in what would be the first lethal injections for the state since putting them on hold six years ago following a series of mishaps. Among the men scheduled to die is Julius Darius Jones, even though the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board just last week recommended that his death sentence be commuted to life in prison. The case that drew national attention after it was featured in 2018 on the ABC television documentary series “The Last Defen
CORNWALL – SDSG remains blue. Conservative candidate Eric Duncan has won in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry. Duncan took an early lead in the riding after the polls closed at 9:30 p.m. Both CTV and CBC declared Duncan the winner just after 10:15 p.m. While Duncan is being returned to the House of Commons as MP, he will continue to serve on the opposition benches. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau will form another minority government. As of 11:15 p.m. EST, the Liberals are leading or elected in 155
Fredericton voters have kept candidates on their toes on election night. Liberal Jenica Atwin has pulled ahead in the race against Conservative candidate Andrea Johnson — but by a hair — after 135 of 154 polls reported. At 12:50 a.m. Tuesday, Atwin was ahead with 13,856 votes, or 36 per cent, and Johnson had 13,718 votes, also at 36 per cent. More than 2,000 local mail-in ballots won't even be counted until Tuesday, so it's possible a result won't be clear when people wake up Tuesday morning. Jo
It's still not clear if the NDP will be able to pull off a breakthrough win in Toronto this election. In the early hours of Tuesday morning, vote counting continued for Parkdale-High Park, Spadina-Fort York and Davenport in the city's downtown west end, with the Liberals and NDP showing close numbers. Davenport was particularly tight, with NDP candidate Alejandra Bravo and Liberal incumbent Julie Dzerowicz trading off leading their riding through the night. In Spadina-Fort York, NDP candidate No
A federal appeals court on Tuesday will consider whether Missouri can implement a sweeping law aimed at limiting abortions. The law adopted in 2019 would ban abortions at or around the eighth week of pregnancy. It also would prohibit abortions based on a Down syndrome diagnosis. The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis isn't expected to rule for several weeks. In June, a three-judge 8th Circuit panel upheld an injunction from U.S. District Judge Howard Sachs prohibiting Missouri from e
