The Senate voted late Monday to advance the Ukraine aid bill 81-11, pushing it toward President Joe Biden's desk by week's end to become law. But more vocal objections from Republicans in Congress are sending warning signs after what has been rare and

The short chapter of a Calgary site in the tragic history of Canada's residential school system will not be forgotten if the City of Calgary and Treaty 7 nations can agree on how to do that. St. Dunstan's industrial school was operated by the Anglican Church from 1892 to 1907 on land that is now in southeast Calgary. Located between Deerfoot Trail and the Bow River, a short distance south of the Calf Robe Bridge, the city has owned the land for several decades. The city is interested in working
Staff at Jack Hulland Elementary School in Whitehorse, Yukon routinely put students in holds or seclusion prior to 2020 for not following directions, including one case where a child was put in a hold for not pulling the hood of their sweater down. Holds, where staff restrain students with their own bodies, are only meant to be used when there's an imminent threat to physical safety.

GENEVA (AP) — The head of the World Health Organization said China’s extreme approach to containing the coronavirus is unsustainable because of the highly infectious nature of the omicron variant, but that it’s up to every country to decide what policy to pursue.
