Families, Children and Social Development Minister Karina Gould said Thursday she’s very confident that all provinces, with one possible exception, would meet the end-of-year deadline for a 50 per cent reduction in child-care fees as outlined in the federal government’s child-care agreement with the provinces and territories. Gould said Manitoba has indicated they would meet the deadline ‘very early’ in the New Year.
OTTAWA — Citizen and business groups are rallying for a political consensus to get Haiti out of humanitarian and political crises, but remain split on the idea of a military intervention. Advocates in Canada and abroad told the House of Commons subcommittee on international human rights that there must be a widely accepted plan for a transitional government in Haiti. The country has not had elections since before the COVID-19 pandemic and a power vacuum has allowed violent gangs to take control
CALGARY — The Canada Energy Regulator has issued financial penalties against Trans Mountain Corp. related to the 2020 death of a worker. The regulator says the Crown corporation failed to take all reasonable care to ensure the safety and security of workers on the day of the incident. The incident occurred on Oct. 27, 2020, when a person working near Edmonton, Alta. on the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project was fatally injured. The person was disassembling a trench box at the time. The re
FREDERICTON — New Brunswick's Court of Appeal has ruled that the August 2020 snap election call that won Premier Blaine Higgs a majority government was legal. In a decision released Thursday, the court dismissed advocacy group Democracy Watch’s argument that the premier’s early election call was illegal because of the province’s fixed-date election law. Writing for the three-judge panel, Justice Ernest Drapeau says there is no admissible evidence that the premier's decision to call a general ele
CHISINAU, Moldova (AP) — Two Moldovan oligarchs who are allegedly implicated in a one-billion-dollar bank fraud and other illicit schemes have been added to a new U.K. sanctions list, Britain's foreign secretary said Friday. The two men, Ilan Shor, and Vladimir Plahotniuc, fled Moldova in 2019 as they faced a series of corruption charges. They were among 30 people around the world sanctioned Friday by the U.K., Foreign Secretary James Cleverly said in a statement. Moldovan authorities allege tha
As a number of viruses circulate in Nova Scotia classrooms, attendance rates in schools have steadily fallen since September. At least in the Halifax area, that trend picked up even more over the month of November. In the Halifax Regional Centre for Education, the province's most populous education district, average attendance rates dropped from 92 per cent in September, to 90 per cent in October, to 86 per cent in November. Over the course of November, attendance fell steadily, from 89 per cent

Monkeys are one of the most amusing and fascinating animals. Perhaps their faces, or their behaviours remind us of ourselves. They have an uncanny resemblance to humans that strikes a chord with us. This monkey lives in Ubud Monkey Forest in Bali, Indonesia. It's a sanctuary where the monkey troop roams freely, enjoying a very natural life in many ways. Tourists are welcome to wander the paths of the forest and watch the monkeys. Occasionally, the monkeys take a serious interest in the tourists. This lucky visitor was taking a break from the walking and she took a seat on a wall. The cheeky monkey was quick to run out of the trees and climb up on her shoulder. It was hard to decide if the little fellow was looking for an opportunity to groom her hair, or hoping for a treat out of her pocket. This sanctuary guest was thrilled to have such an encounter with such a friendly little monkey. Although these animals are still wild, they are well acquainted with people visiting and they can be trusted enough to allow such an interaction. Guides wander the paths as well and they keep a close eye the animals to make sure that everything remains friendly. Visitors are able to see monkeys close up here. The monkey troop thrives in a sanctuary that is protected and funded by tourism, and the village itself profits from the tourism funds that the forest brings. This is a win for all concerned. And it was a huge win for this Canadian guest who described this as a bucket list item for her.

Sexual violence by police is more common than many might think. Failing to fully investigate can have a chilling effect on what is already the most underreported violent crime in Canada.
OTTAWA — Veteran journalist Dean Beeby says reporters are abandoning the federal Access to Information Act as a research tool because turnaround times are terrible and getting worse. The access law allows journalists and others who pay a $5 fee to request documents — from internal emails and expense claims to briefing memos and studies — but it has long been criticized as antiquated and poorly administered. Federal agencies are supposed to respond within 30 days or provide valid reasons why they
