MORA, N.M. (AP) — Nearly 3,000 firefighters in New Mexico kept the nation's largest active wildfire from growing on Monday as they took advantage of cooler weather before the return of more dangerous conditions later in the week. “Overall, a good day,” fire operations chief Alex McBath said Monday night. “Everything stayed within the fire lines.” Firefighters also expanded contingency firebreaks northeast of Santa Fe as forecasters warned that hotter, windier weather will return by Friday. “Just
The high inflation rate on P.E.I. is putting some businesses in the position of paying more to operate or charging more for services. In April, the inflation rate on P.E.I. was 8.9 per cent, the highest of any jurisdiction in the country. It means higher costs for items that need to be shipped in, such as baskets for plants at VK Greenhouses in Charlottetown. The greenhouse has had to increase the price of everything by at least 10 per cent to make a profit, said Peter Meijer, operations manager
For Japan, U.S. President Joe Biden's comment he would be willing to use force to defend Taiwan signalled no formal change in policy. Biden's remark on Monday - during his first Asia visit since taking office - appeared to stretch the limits of the U.S. policy of "strategic ambiguity" toward self-ruled Taiwan, to China's anger. While the United States has a commitment under its Taiwan Relations Act "to help provide Taiwan the means to defend itself", it has long declined to make clear how it might react in the event of a Chinese attack on the island.

LONDON (Reuters) -The World Health Organization does not believe the monkeypox outbreak outside of Africa requires mass vaccinations as measures like good hygiene and safe sexual behaviour will help control its spread, a senior official said on Monday. Richard Pebody, who leads the high-threat pathogen team at WHO Europe, also told Reuters in an interview that immediate supplies of vaccines and antivirals are relatively limited. His comments came as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it was in the process of releasing some Jynneos vaccine doses for use in monkeypox cases.

A rematch three years in the making is the most important game of the season so far for the Vancouver Whitecaps, says head coach Vanni Sartini. The club knows it must beat Cavalry FC in the second round of the Canadian Championship on Wednesday in order to advance — and Vancouver's record against the Canadian Premier League side isn't exactly positive. The 'Caps were heavily favoured when they came up against Cavalry in the 2019 tournament. But Calgary stunned with a 2-1 aggregate win, ousting t

MONTREAL — Canadian fashion mogul Peter Nygard's sexual assault and forcible confinement case in Quebec will return to a Montreal courtroom July 8. Nygard remains detained in Toronto and did not appear during the brief hearing before a judge at the Montreal courthouse.

Nygard faces one count of sexual assault and one count of forcible confinement in Quebec. The cri
People looking to take rural bus routes on P.E.I. can no longer take getting a seat for granted, says the Department of Transportation. Soaring gas prices and the reopening of offices with pandemic restrictions ending have combined to fill the province's rural transit buses, said Alex Dalziel, a policy analyst with the Department. "We're pleased to see that ridership has been steadily increasing and Islanders are choosing to leave their cars at home," said Dalziel. "At the same time we don't wan

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — An abortion clinic set to open next month in conservative Wyoming was damaged in a fire early Wednesday that police believe was deliberately set — possibly by someone seen running away from the building carrying what appeared to be a gas can and a bag. The blaze damaged the inside of the building under renovation to house the clinic in Casper, the second-biggest city in a state where opposition to abortion is widespread. The clinic, which also planned to provide other health
