MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Hazel McCallion, who led one of Canada's largest cities into her 90s, died Sunday morning, leaving behind a legacy of feisty advocacy and more than three decades of nearly unchallenged leadership. Known affectionately as "Hurricane Hazel," the longtime mayor of Mississauga, Ont., may have been diminutive, but was an outspoken political powerhouse. Word of McCallion's death came in a Sunday morning statement from Ontario Premier Doug Ford, who said she died peacefully at her h
HELSINKI (AP) — The foreign ministers of Sweden and Finland reiterated in separate interviews published Saturday that the process for the two Nordic nations to join NATO is continuing despite Turkey's president saying Sweden shouldn’t expect his country to approve its membership.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Mass shootings have commanded public attention on a disturbingly frequent basis across the U.S. But rather than provoking a unified response from elected officials, each additional shooting seems to be widening the political divide on gun policy among states. “It’s wash, rinse and repeat with these mass shootings,” said Michael Anderson, a bartender who survived a mass shooting at a Colorado nightclub. “They happen, and then they happen, and then they happen — and then
A former Newfoundland and Labrador government employee has been sentenced to 30 months' imprisonment for bilking more than half a million dollars from the provincial Medical Care Plan program over a four-year period. At a sentencing hearing in Grand Falls-Windsor this week, provincial court Judge Mark Pike called it "a somewhat sophisticated scheme of deception" that was planned and deliberate. Denise Hemeon, 53, pleaded guilty to fraud over $5,000. A charge of forgery was withdrawn. Hemeon apol
WASHINGTON (AP) — Ulysses S. Grant was still president when workers finished the Baltimore and Potomac Tunnel, which connected Philadelphia and Washington through rail travel for the first time. But 150 years later, the tunnel that runs under some of Baltimore's residential neighborhoods is more of a chokepoint than a lifeline. There's only one track, and trains need to slow down to just 30 mph to navigate a tight turn on the southern end. It's a problem that President Joe Biden knows well, havi

MILAN (AP) — Lautaro Martínez's rich vein of scoring form produced two more goals to help Inter Milan win at bottom club Cremonese 2-1 and move into second spot in Serie A on Saturday. Cremonese took a surprise lead with a stunning strike from David Okereke but Martínez scored in each half. That took the World Cup winner to six goals in his past six matches for Inter and lifted his team two points above third-placed AC Milan, which plays Sassuolo on Sunday. Inter and Milan meet in a Serie A derb

BERLIN (AP) — Hertha Berlin surprisingly fired its head of sport, Fredi Bobic, on Saturday after the team lost to Union Berlin 2-0 in the city derby. Bobic’s departure was unexpected as he was seen as the Bundesliga club’s main hope to clean up others’ mistakes after a botched big-money bid to turn Hertha into a “big city club” left it, instead, as a perennial relegation candidate with little to spend. Bobic had been in charge since June 2021 and was responsible for signings and squad building.
One of the organizers of a Memorial University conference held at a luxury hotel says the event was costly, but it wasn't as pricey as it appeared and contributed to a valuable university partnership. In November 2021, MUN's president chaired a four-day Arctic Forum at the Fogo Island Inn, with costs totalling more than $100,000. A university spokesperson said $56,657 of that cost came from university coffers, while federal sources covered $24,453 and the rest came from attendees. It was the thi

As a lawyer, Carolynne Burkholder-James has written many deathbed wills for clients and their families, and feels strongly about helping someone who wants to live a longer life. "It really hits home to me that we're on this Earth for such a short period of time," the Prince George woman said on CBC's Daybreak North. That realization is part of what inspired her to give the gift of life to someone she might never meet. After months of medical screening, Burkholder-James flew 700 kilometres from t

One of the most significant archaeological digs in Manitoba's history is exposing a key element of Indigenous history, but the group heading the project says it's also scraping to stay afloat due to chronic under funding by the province. The Manitoba Archaeological Society has been forced in recent years to cut its only paid staff member and abandon its office. Everything is now stored in the vacant office of a three-bay car wash in the small southwestern Manitoba town of Virden. "My car wash ha

Reactions, recollections and condolences have poured in from numerous public figures. A sample of some of the tributes: "There isn't a single person who met Hazel who didn't leave in awe of her force of personality . . . . As I entered the world of politics, I was fortunate enough to learn from her wisdom and guidance, which she selflessly offered until the very end." — Ont
Crows have become a celebrated bird in Chatham-Kent, but in recent weeks an alarming amount of crow deaths has caught the attention of pathologists in southern Ontario. Brian Stevens, a veterinary pathologist with the Canadian Wildlife Health Cooperative, told CBC News his team hasn't received their full lab results yet but they believe the crows are likely dying from an avian reovirus. He said it's "a virus that attacks these crows, attacks their internal organs, especially their intestinal tra
BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) -German Chancellor Olaf Scholz on Saturday urged a swift conclusion to talks on a free trade deal between the European Union and the Mercosur South American trade bloc, on the first stop in Buenos Aires of his inaugural tour of the region. Seeking to reduce Germany's economic reliance on China, diversify its trade and strengthen relations with democracies worldwide, Scholz is visiting Argentina, Chile and Brazil, all led by fellow leftists who came to power in the region's new "pink tide."
