Canada's public safety minister says multiple levels of police and national security forces are preparing to deal with any threats that could erupt from extremists who have latched on to a massive truck convoy that began descending on the nation's capital Friday.

SURREY, B.C. — The Mounties called in explosive experts after a person walked into one of their offices in Surrey, B.C., with a grenade on Thursday. The RCMP say someone went to their Guildford office to hand over the device, saying it was found at a nearby park.

It is rooted in a movement that goes at least as far back as the la
OTTAWA — It's difficult to forget the tragic scenes that played out in long-term care homes across the country in the early days of the pandemic as residents died in the thousands, isolated from their loved ones. While vaccines have played a major role in protecting homes from the same deadly toll the first wave of COVID-19 took on residents, the impact has still been profound during the Omicron wave. "It's staggering when you just look at the number of homes in outbreak," said Dr. Samir Sinha,
