GENEVA (AP) — After a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, organizers of the annual Davos conference will host the high-profile gathering of elites in the Swiss Alps in-person again in January. The World Economic Forum said Thursday that its next annual meeting will take place from Jan. 17-22 in the resort village of Davos in eastern Switzerland. A virtual version was held in January this year after repeated attempts to reschedule an in-person event were thwarted by health concerns a
AMSTERDAM (AP) — A drawing newly attributed to Vincent van Gogh that has never been displayed publicly before is going on show at the Amsterdam museum that bears the Dutch master's name. The “new” Van Gogh, "Study for ‘Worn Out,’” from November 1882, is part of a Dutch private collection and was known to only a handful of people, including a few from the Van Gogh Museum. The owner, who is remaining anonymous, asked the museum to determine if the unsigned drawing is by Van Gogh. From the style, t
With Alberta now in the grip of another public health emergency after a summer largely free of COVID-related restrictions, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau said today Canadians can't trust Conservatives to run the country during a pandemic. Pointing to Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole's past praise for the Alberta government's handling of the pandemic, Trudeau said Canadians should take a pass on a leader who has expressed admiration for a failed approach to the pandemic. "Just a few days ago, Mr.

After 45 minutes of debate, Niagara-on-the-Lake councillors decided they will do nothing about the route for the Pedal Pub. At the end of July, council tasked town staff to work with the Pedal Pub to come up with alternative routes for the business after several councillors took issue with the mobile pub running down two of the busiest streets in the municipality, Queen and Mississagua. During a two-part council meeting that concluded on Sept. 3, councillors were chiefly worried about safety – a
Ontario reported 864 new cases of COVID-19 on Thursday, the vast majority of which have presented in people who are either not fully vaccinated or whose vaccination status is unclear. Of the 798 cases today with a known vaccination status: 533, or 67 per cent, were in those unvaccinated. 56, or seven per cent, had a single dose. 209, or 26 per cent, had two doses. The seven-day average now stands at 732, just slightly higher than last week's on the same day, when it was 723. The province's raw d
The first of three virtual speaker events will take place tonight at the Kingston PumpHouse in a series called "Refugees Welcome: Refuge Canada Speaker Series". The series is meant to give residents a chance to listen to community members who have firsthand experience as refugees and helps localize and raise awareness of the current exhibition at the PumpHouse. Heritage Services Program Coordinator Keely Maddock says the exhibition brings a focus on questioning if Canada's response to refugees i
Peel Region's top doctor says he's "increasingly concerned about the divisive rhetoric" over vaccinations as officials try to reach 330,000 eligible residents in the region still not fully immunized against COVID-19. Of that number, Dr. Lawrence Loh says 215,000 have not taken a single dose of a vaccine at all, while some 115,000 have only taken one. That means a total of 23 per cent of Peel residents aged 12 and over have yet to be fully vaccinated. "While this may be hard to imagine, we are no
A proposed U.S. law that would allow cruise ships to permanently bypass B.C. ports has industry leaders calling on the province to ensure the legislation never sees the light of day. The Tribal Tourism Sovereignty Act, introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives by Alaskan congressman Don Young earlier this summer, would allow cruise ships to circumvent federal laws requiring foreign ships to make an international stopover — meaning cruises could travel directly from Seattle to Alaska withou
OTTAWA — Federal leaders are pointing the finger at each other over the spiralling COVID-19 crisis in Alberta, each seeking to forge a link in voters' minds between the health emergency in the province and the others' policies. Justin Trudeau, speaking from Montreal this morning, said conservative politicians across the country have not been as effective in fighting the pandemic, and questioned whether Tory Leader Erin O'Toole should be sitting across from them at the premiers' table. Minutes la
MONTREAL — A question at the English-language federal leaders' debate last week has become a major issue in Quebec, boosting the Bloc Québécois in the polls and drawing criticism from Quebec politicians, federal party leaders and the province’s media. For people who follow Quebec politics, the widespread negative response to the question, which described two Quebec laws as discriminatory, wasn't a surprise. They say it comes at a time when many Quebecers are particularly sensitive to the idea th
The Sudbury public health jurisdiction is ahead of the provincial average in terms of the number of local residents who have jabbed with a COVID-19 vaccine, according to the most recent vaccine summary. The latest vaccine report from Public Health Sudbury and Districts (PHSD), said there have been first dose vaccines given to 150,687 local residents. The summary also said that 138,377 people have been given double doses of the vaccines. PHSD said this means that 85.8 per cent of the local popula
NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) — Austria’s minister for the European Union on Thursday accused Turkey of using migrant flows as a means to pressure the 27-member bloc for its own purposes and warned that the EU won’t be “blackmailed” by any country. Karoline Edtstadler said countries on the EU’s external borders like Cyprus won’t be left alone to fend for themselves amid an influx of new migrants. “Turkey, which uses migration and migrants as a tool to pressure the European Union, we will not accept that,
A powerful mix of insecurity and traditional prejudice against more liberal female politicians put Awatef Rasheed off running for parliament when she returned to Iraq in 2014 after years abroad. Seven years later, with Iraq less unstable, Rasheed has decided to contest a Oct. 10 election for the assembly, even if abuse and intimidation of women would-be lawmakers persist. Passing a new domestic violence law, and more representation for women in the executive branch of government, are among the goals of some of the would-be female lawmakers.
Traditional learning formats often fail marginalized students. We should be skeptical of a ‘one-size-fits-all’ or even ‘one-size-fits-most’ model.
Two lawsuits are alleging that a Wendy's fast-food restaurant in Sydney, N.S., was negligent in failing to protect female employees from repeated sexual assaults by a supervisor. One of the lawsuits was filed in Nova Scotia Supreme Court against T-Roy Enterprises Ltd., the owner of the Wendy's location, back in March. A second is expected to be filed later Thursday. Halifax-based Valent Legal, the law firm behind the lawsuits, said the restaurant took no steps to investigate or address the repor
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -General Motors Co said on Thursday it will extend a shutdown of a Michigan assembly plant to mid-October following a new recall of its Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicles over battery issues after 12 reported fires. The largest U.S. automaker said the extension of the production halt at its Orion Assembly plant will go through at least Oct. 15. GM also said it was cutting production at six other North American assembly plants because of the ongoing semiconductor chips shortage.
NEW YORK (AP) — L. Steven Taylor got the call that would change his life in 2005: Would he like to make his Broadway debut in “The Lion King”? It was just a six-month contract but he took it, uprooting his family and moving to New York. “Six months has turned into 16 years,” Taylor says with a smile. “The show just kept kind of pulling me back, calling me back. It’s home for me.” Taylor got the honor to restart “The Lion King” this week as Mufasa, the king, after 18 months of silence due to the
MONTREAL (Reuters) -Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, seeking to carve out a lead ahead of Monday's election, accused his main rival on Thursday of showing weak leadership in the fight against COVID-19. Opinion polls show Trudeau's center-left Liberals effectively tied with the right-of-center Conservatives led by Erin O'Toole and set to fail in their bid to win a parliamentary majority. Trudeau, 49, noted that O'Toole, 48, had praised Alberta Premier Jason Kenney's decision earlier this year to quickly lift public health restrictions in the Western Canadian province.
