To commemorate the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation last year, Kanien'kehá:ka (Mohawk) artist Wyler Diome-Montour designed T-shirts for his community.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Hurricane Ian lashed Florida's southwest coast Wednesday with heavy winds and rain after strengthening to a catastrophic storm that was likely to deliver devastating floods. The center of the massive Category 4 storm lingered offshore for hours, which was likely to mean more rain and damage from a hurricane that was trudging on a track that would have it making landfall north of the heavily populated Fort Myers area.

OTTAWA — The Liberals say it's up to national security agencies to decide whether Canada extends its terrorism list to include a branch of Iran's military. MPs passed a motion in 2018 to designate the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization. The U.S. has put the group on its terror list, but Canada has only listed a subset of the organization.
