Martine Corbeil has lived in her Montreal home since 1997 and has always parked her car in the driveway out front. But last August, she got a letter from the borough of Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve. "It said that we were not allowed to park in front of our house according to this bylaw," she said. That will certainly complicate things for her — and not just because she has to carry her groceries from a curbside spot. She has an electric car and there's a charging station attached to her house s
The Higgs government faced another angry, skeptical crowd Tuesday night as public consultations on its plan to replace French immersion in New Brunswick schools took place in Saint John. More than 300 people turned out, and all 27 who spoke at the meeting denounced the proposal to implement a new program in time for this fall. "It should go without saying that reducing French immersion by 50 per cent is not going to improve French," said parent Micah Peterson, who has five children in immersion

Ottawa will attempt to renegotiate its $20-billion compensation package for people affected by the First Nations child welfare system, court records say. Federal officials are expected to begin "intense confidential discussions" on Feb. 7 and 8 to re-work the $20-billion compensation agreement that was rejected last fall by the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal, according to a letter filed in Federal Court. The Trudeau government is trying to save the multi-billion dollar agreement it struck with t
Two more men have been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Justin Breau last summer. On Thursday afternoon, Donald Robert Walker, 50, and Dustin Trey Walker-Hammond, 24, were charged with first-degree murder. A day earlier, a third man, Charles William Shatford, 47, was also charged with Breau's first-degree murder. The Crown objected to the release of all three, so they will remain in jail until after bail hearings can be held. On Thursday, Walker and Walker-Hammond were both order

OTTAWA — Pressure is building for Canada to send some of its Leopard 2 battle tanks to Ukraine after Germany decided to provide the heavy weapons and allow other countries to do the same. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced his government's decision on Wednesday following weeks of hesitation that created impatience among his country's allies, saying Berlin will send 14 of its Leopard 2A6 tanks. Scholz’s announcement came shortly before U.S. President Joe Biden revealed plans to send 31 M1 Ab
Geneviève Guay says she's not against the development of commercial and residential space around the soon-to-open light-rail network station on Nuns' Island in Montreal. But she is concerned about the number of people expected to move onto the island, which, she explained during a public consultation meeting Tuesday evening, doesn't have the infrastructure to handle a population boom. Nuns' Island is in the Verdun borough where the Champlain Bridge connects to the city from the South Shore. The

LUNENBURG, N.S. — Another community in Nova Scotia has removed the name Cornwallis from municipal property — and the town of Lunenburg is now looking for new names from the public. Lunenburg council announced Tuesday that a street and two parks will be renamed following a recommendation from the town's anti-racism committee. The committee said changes are needed because the parks and street were originally named after former Nova Scotia governor Edward Cornwallis, who issued a "scalping proclama
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — An online citizen journalist from Texas asked federal appeals court judges Wednesday to revive her lawsuit against authorities who had her arrested for seeking and obtaining nonpublic information from police — a case that has drawn attention from national media organizations and free speech advocates. A state judge dismissed the criminal case against Priscilla Villarreal in 2018, saying the law used to arrested her in 2017 was deemed unconstitutionally vague, according to cour
BANGKOK (AP) — The production of opium in Myanmar has flourished since the military's seizure of power, with the cultivation of poppies up by a third in the past year as eradication efforts have dropped off and the faltering economy has led more people toward the drug trade, according to a United Nations report released Thursday. In 2022, in the first full growing season since the military wrested control of the country from the democratically elected government of Aung San Suu Kyi in 2021, Myan

Senior housing officials are preparing a presentation for the Nova Scotia government on ways to address the province's housing crisis, and one of those options will be to build new public housing. Deputy housing minister Paul Lafleche told members of the legislature's public accounts committee on Wednesday that the level of need for market rate housing and affordable units is such that all options must be considered. That could mean the provincial government building new affordable housing stock
LANSING, Mich.. (AP) — Just three months ago, Rep. Elissa Slotkin was one of the most vulnerable Democrats in Washington, fighting an expensive campaign for reelection in a Michigan district that Republicans were sure they could retake. That was all a distant memory recently as Slotkin sat beaming next to Sen. Debbie Stabenow at a Lansing luncheon commemorating Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Fresh off a surprisingly comfortable 5 percentage-point victory, Slotkin was eager to praise Stabenow, the d
WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. House overwhelmingly approved a resolution Wednesday expressing solidarity with people in Iran who have been risking imprisonment and even death to protest against the country’s theocracy. The 420-1 vote marked the latest round of international condemnation against Iran's government, which has engaged in a brutal crackdown of its citizenry since the September death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in police custody. “It is vital that we in the U.S. House of Representatives,
EDMONTON — Alberta Premier Danielle Smith’s promise to assemble a panel of medical experts to deliver ongoing advice on public health and COVID-19 will be covered off by former Reform Party Leader Preston Manning’s pandemic review, her office said Wednesday. “The central role of the (Manning) panel will be to review legislation and recommend amendments to better enable the province to respond to future health emergencies,” Smith’s spokesman Taylor Hides said in a statement, responding to questio
