Organizations helping unhoused people in Montreal are struggling to meet demand this winter, although the city says it's offering more places than ever in emergency shelters.

At the Old Brewery Mission (OBM), every day, more than 20 people are being turned away, Émilie Fortier, director of emergency services at the OBM, said.

MOSCOW/BRUSSELS (Reuters) -NATO said on Monday it was putting forces on standby and reinforcing eastern Europe with more ships and fighter jets, in what Russia denounced as Western "hysteria" in response to its build-up of troops on the Ukraine border.

DOVER, Del. (AP) — A Delaware lawmaker who came under fire last year for using a racist and sexist slur to refer to sex workers was arrested on shoplifting charges Tuesday, just days after announcing that he was resigning for health reasons. Newark police said a warrant was issued Tuesday for Rep. Gerald Brady’s arrest on two counts of shoplifting, and that Brady, 65, turned himself in a few hours later. He was released on his own recognizance. House Democrats announced last Friday that Brady wa
A popular summer camp held at Laurel Creek Conservation Area in Waterloo, Ont., has changed its name in a move local Indigenous leaders say is a good example of reconciliation. Camp K is run by St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Kitchener. It recently changed its name to stop using a word, created to sound Indigenous, that's a play on the phrase "come on, I want to go." "It's appropriating that language inflection that's Indigenous," said Amy Smoke, who is Mohawk Nation Turtle Clan from Six Nat

Alberta's premier's office has designated an investigator and set out terms of reference for their investigation into whether the justice minister's phone call to Edmonton's police chief about a personal traffic ticket constituted interference. Kaycee Madu has been stripped of that role and its duties while the investigation is conducted by Adèle Kent, a retired Court of Queen's Bench justice. The inquiry comes after Madu phoned Chief Dale McFee last March to discuss the circumstances of a traff

Recent developments: Paramedics and 9-1-1 dispatchers are used to working in emergencies, but years of on-going ambulance shortages have been made worse by the pandemic, and now the pressures on those front-line workers have reached a "boiling point", according to their union. Ottawa's top doctor says she's concerned with the vaccination rate of inmates at the Ottawa Carleton Detention Centre as the jail continues to deal with another large COVID-19 outbreak. Doug Taylor decided to make his own
TORONTO — On a recent snowy afternoon in New York City, Samantha Bee is gleefully making her way to a cat café. It's a production day for her TBS late-night show "Full Frontal," and in this particular episode, she tackles how disinformation can spread through something as seemingly innocuous as the cute cat videos the internet lives for. In other words, it's a quintessential episode of the series, which began its seventh season Thursday. "I'm trying to find more entry points into serious materia
MONTREAL — The Quebec government says a new "positive approach" to persuade people to get their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine will complement the punitive measures so far imposed to increase vaccination rates. But Quebecers shouldn't expect anything dramatically different, junior health minister Lionel Carmant told reporters Monday. "We want to use the same technique, intensify it, increase the visibility to have further success," Carmant said. A pop-up vaccination clinic will open in downtown

A court ruling tossing out a lawsuit against public-sector pension reforms in 2014 could spell the end of the seven-year fight over the changes. Court of Queen's Bench Chief Justice Tracey DeWare ruled last week that the legal action could not go forward because both the person suing the province and the basis for their case had changed. The lawsuit was one of three before the courts seeking to overturn reforms advanced by Blaine Higgs when he was finance minister. The plaintiff in a second case
France's case against Ottawa academic Hassan Diab in connection with a bombing outside a Paris synagogue 40 years ago will go to trial in 2023 — more than five years after he was set free due to a lack of evidence. Last year, France's court of appeal overturned a lower court decision to release Diab and allow him to return to Canada. France's top court later rejected Diab's appeal and ordered him to stand trial. That trial is set to start on April 3, 2023. French authorities have not yet request

Snti-vaccine activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. made “deeply offensive" comments when he suggested things are worse for people today than they were for Anne Frank, the teenager who died in a Nazi concentration camp after hiding with her family in a secret annex in an Amsterdam house for two years, the Anti-Defamation League and U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum said Monday. “Making reckless comparisons to the Holocaust, the murder of six million Jews, for a political agenda is outrageous and deeply off
From the shoreline, Lynn Gregan's fishing operation in Miramichi Bay just looks like a few sticks poking up through the ice. When you make the trek across the frozen water by snowmobile and see it up close, it still looks like just sticks and ice. But when the chainsaws come out it's a whole other kettle of fish. A kettle of smelt to be specific. "A smelt is a delicate, tasty little critter fish that we have here in many Maritime provinces," said Gregan. "But here in Miramichi Bay, it's a delica
When Andrew Hunter thinks about the main subject of his book, he recalls having her in mind since the early 1990s. Through her story, he says, she has the ability to connect to people in Black communities grappling with the legacy of slavery. Of the stories in books and articles about people enslaved, her narrative offered a unique perspective. "I was thinking about Sophia for a long time," he said. Hunter is referring to Sophia Burthen Pooley, a enslaved woman once owned by Indigenous leader Jo
