A post-election report on the Conservative Party's 2021 campaign performance found leader Erin O'Toole had a strong start to the 36-day electoral contest but faltered at the finish because he was "over-managed" and "over-coached" by senior staff. The report, commissioned by the party brass and compiled by former Alberta MP James Cumming, concluded O'Toole didn't connect well enough with voters because he "wasn't himself" at key moments in the campaign. "The team should have let him be him rather

OTTAWA — The big rigs began rolling into downtown Ottawa midday Friday, as a planned anti-vaccine mandate protest began to swell in number and energy, with some in attendance promising to stay put until Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is forced out. The Ottawa Police Service said it was calling in reinforcements to help keep the peace as hundreds of vehicles and long-haul trucks continued their trek toward the nation's capital to demand an end to all COVID-19 restrictions, including vaccine passpo

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. The office and surrounding area had to be evacuated because it was unclear if the grenade was still functioning. Streets around the detachment were also closed as a precaution. Const. Sarbjit Sangha says in a news release that anyone wh
ROME (Reuters) -Italy's parliament will make a fifth attempt to elect a new president on Friday, with party chiefs sounding more confident about finding a mutually acceptable candidate for the powerful role. Prime Minister Mario Draghi remains a contender, but his prospects have faded this week, with many lawmakers clearly reluctant to back him, partly because they fear any change to the government could trigger an early election. The Italian presidency comes with a seven-year mandate and has considerable power to resolve political crises that regularly batter the country, including appointing prime ministers and dissolving parliament.

When visitors approach the Islamic Cultural Centre in Quebec City's Sainte-Foy neighbourhood, they're no longer greeted by the large picture windows that used to face the street, before a deadly shooting five years ago. It's been replaced with a concrete wall with smaller windows, in case someone tries to ram the building with a truck. Security cameras face all the entrances, including the one a gunman used on Jan. 29, 2017, when he walked in and opened fire in a prayer room, killing six worship
VICTORIA — British Columbia's top doctor says COVID-19 restrictions on social gatherings are expected to be gradually lifted next month, starting on Family Day. Dr. Bonnie Henry says that's possible in part because 90 per cent of residents aged 12 and over have received two doses of vaccine, though more people need to get a booster shot for longer-lasting protection. She says taking that step is necessary as new variants will surely emerge as immunity wanes and respiratory season in the fall aga
Conservative Party Leader Erin O’Toole said Thursday that he would meet with truckers on Friday as a trucker convoy rumbles toward Ottawa. O’Toole said the convoy was a symbol of the division in Canada and appealed to Canadians to show compassion toward truckers and those who haven’t been vaccinated.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was isolating at home Thursday after being exposed to COVID-19 and some provinces were planning to revise some of their public health restrictions. The prime minister said in a tweet that he learned about the exposure the night before after he had been at a news conference on Parliament Hill with three top ministers. Trudeau's office said the exposure happened afterward and no staffer or minister in range of the prime minister was isolating. Trudeau said the result
MONTREAL — The Quebec government has launched an online portal to track COVID-19 rapid test results, even as experts say there are limits to the accuracy of the data it provides. Quebecers who log in to the portal are asked to enter their names, dates of birth and medicare numbers, as well as the dates the tests were taken, whether they had symptoms and whether the results were positive or negative. While officials say the platform could help track the spread of the pandemic, Benoît Massé, a pro

Dr. Eileen de Villa, Toronto's medical officer of health, said Friday that public health officials increasingly believe that COVID-19 will become endemic and that there will be a level of infection that Torontonians will have to learn to live with. "Increasingly, public health officials the world over are recognizing that, given the current circumstances and given the presence of variants like Omicron and the significant transmissibility that they bring with them, that we are likely to find ours
Colville Lake is now looking to 2024 for self-government after its target deadline last year was missed. "Our plan for 2021 was to conclude the first part of our self-government," said David Codzi, president of the Ayoni Keh Land Corporation. "We had to push it back to 2024 now." As for why the talks have taken longer than expected, Codzi said one reason is that the territorial government has not implemented the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).
