There, they got a flight the next morning to Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan. "We thought we might have to cross the [Belarusian] border illegally through the forests if they didn't let us out of Russia," said Andrey, 26, speaking from Tashkent.

With auto thefts in and around Toronto on the rise, you might be wondering if your car could be a target. Indeed, an investigation by CBC Toronto found car thefts are up nearly 45 per cent in the city compared to last year — with three months still to go in 2022 — and up 54 per cent in Peel Region as of Aug. 31.

It's been more than a year-and-a-half since Jana William's remains were found near the Red River at Alfred Avenue in Winnipeg — and her family is still looking for answers. Police declared 28-year-old Jana's death a homicide in March 2021. Charlene Williams, Jana's mom, said she hasn't heard from the detective on her daughter's case since May last year. "I'm mad about it. It's like they don't even care about what's going on with our people, our women and children. They're not doing nothing, they
RENO, Nev. (AP) — Common sense more than any campaign strategy dictated that Adam Laxalt not trumpet his own military service in Nevada’s sometimes-heated Republican Senate primary. After all, the ex-attorney general, who served as a Navy judge advocate general in Iraq, was running against retired Army Capt. Sam Brown, a war hero who was nearly killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan and whose badly scarred face serves as a more powerful reminder of his sacrifice than his Purple Heart. But with
CHARLOTTETOWN — Residents of Prince Edward Island say they're growing exhausted, anxious and cold as thousands remain without power nine days after post-tropical storm Fiona swept through the region. Kylee Graham, who hasn't had power at her Charlottetown apartment since 1 a.m. on Sept. 24., says life is increasingly difficult as she copes with cooling temperatures and a lack of heat or light. The 26-year-old is also a volunteer with the Charlottetown Mutual Aid, and says she is encountering sen

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea on Tuesday fired a ballistic missile over Japan for the first time in five years, forcing Japan to issue evacuation notices and suspend trains during the flight of the nuclear-capable weapon that could reach the U.S. territory of Guam and beyond. The launch was the most provocative weapons demonstration by North Korea this year as it ramps up missile tests in its push to build a full-fledged nuclear arsenal that viably threatens U.S. allies and the American
Calgary property sales cooled in September by nearly 12 per cent when compared with last year, but the market for more affordable housing options is making gains, the Calgary Real Estate Board said Monday. Demand for detached housing slowed for the sixth month in a row, CREB said in a report on September's sales, and the decline is being attributed to a narrowing segment of the market: homes priced around $500,000. A "significant" reduction in supply has left few options for potential purchasers

The Quebec Liberal Party has lost some seats but will return to the Quebec National Assembly as Official Opposition. Leader Dominique Anglade faced a tight race in her own Montreal riding of Saint-Henri–Sainte-Anne in Monday's provincial election but was elected by just over 2,700 votes. With 99.9 per cent of polls reporting, the Liberals are leading or elected in 21 ridings, the majority of which are in the Montreal area. In 2018, the Quebec Liberal Party (PLQ) won 32 seats — a historic low for
Indigenous people continue to be overrepresented in Canada's correctional institutions. Fighting against these statistics in Saskatoon is STR8UP, a group for ex-inmates who gather to support each other, try to heal generations of trauma, and rebuild their lives.
QUEBEC — Fresh off his landslide electoral victory, Premier François Legault has a new mission: forming his next cabinet. And the leader of the re-elected Coalition Avenir Québec has many new faces to choose from. As of late last night, The Canadian Press was projecting that the CAQ won or was leading in 89 ridings of Quebec's 125 ridings. The party had 76 seats when the legislature was dissolved before the campaign. Meanwhile, the Liberals hung on to official Opposition status, with leader Domi
The Windsor-Detroit tunnel bus is back as of Nov. 20, according to the City of Windsor's website. The cross-border service, which is provided by Transit Windsor, has been cancelled since the pandemic began. Transit Windsor had said it will resume tunnel bus service to Detroit as soon as it's feasible, now that the federal government has lifted the ArriveCan requirement at the border. The city's website says that special events service on the tunnel bus is suspended until further notice. The sche
Winnipeg police have stopped an attempt to enlarge an encampment on the front lawn of the Manitoba legislature. Two teepees were previously set up on the lawn, and protesters were trying to bring in poles to build another one. Dozens of police officers stood in a row near the entrance to the grounds and turned back a man who tried to carry in one pole. Another pole that had been brought in earlier was removed by a protester after a conversation with police. The encampment is one of two that have
In the sole Outaouais seat change of the night, CBC projects Coalition Avenir Québec's Suzanne Tremblay will defeat Liberal incumbent Maryse Gaudreault in the Hull riding. Gaudreault had been the MNA for the riding since 2007, with the riding voting Liberal for decades. The last time a non-Liberal won the riding was in 1976 when Jocelyne Ouelette with the Parti Québécois won by just two votes. Hull comprises part of the City of Gatineau. It has a population of 79,845, with 55,645 registered vote
An independent investigation into the scandals that erupted in the National Women's Soccer League last season found emotional abuse and sexual misconduct were systemic in the sport, impacting multiple teams, coaches and players, according to a report released Monday. “Abuse in the NWSL is rooted in a deeper culture in women’s soccer, beginning in youth leagues, that normalizes verbally abusive coaching and blurs boundaries between coaches and players,” former acting U.S. Attorney General Sally Q
