WASHINGTON (AP) — “We the People” is Jill Biden's holiday theme with White House decorations designed for “the people” to see themselves in the tree ornaments, mantel displays, mirrors and do-it-yourself creations that have turned the mansion's public spaces into a winter wonderland. “The soul of our nation is, and has always been, ‘We the People,’” the first lady said at a White House event honoring the volunteers who decorated over Thanksgiving weekend. "And that is what inspired this year’s W
AL RAYYAN, Qatar — Croatia booted Canada out of the World Cup on Sunday, then kicked it when it was down. While the Canadians still have one game left to play in Group F, Sunday's 4-1 loss to Croatia ended their hopes of advancing to the knockout round. John Herdman's men will go home after facing No. 22 Morocco on Thursday. They will hope to leave on a winning note. But at 0-2-0 at the bottom of their group, the 41st-ranked Canadians can finish with no more than three points and cannot catch Mo
TORONTO — Excitement and jubilation after Canada scored its first-ever goal at the Men's World Cup gave way to dismay after Croatia came back with a string of goals to end the team's hopes of reaching the tournament's knockout round. Fans initially screamed, jumped out of their seats and embraced each other at a sold-out watch party in downtown Toronto Sunday as Alphonso Davies scored the historic goal. The star winger and Bayern Munich player headed the ball home to give Canada an initial 1-0 l
A cyber attack has disabled online learning and left telephone and email services down, Durham District School Board said Sunday.

MONCTON, N.B. — The Muslim community in Moncton, N.B., is calling for change after one of its members died Wednesday while waiting for care in a New Brunswick emergency room. Abdal Khan, president of the Moncton Muslim Association, says the New Brunswick government must do something about its struggling health-care system.

NEW YORK (AP) — “Gaslighting” — behavior that's mind manipulating, grossly misleading, downright deceitful — is Merriam-Webster's word of the year. Lookups for the word on merriam-webster.com increased 1,740% in 2022 over the year before. But something else happened. There wasn't a single event that drove significant spikes in curiosity, as it usually goes with the chosen word of the year. The gaslighting was pervasive. “It’s a word that has risen so quickly in the English language, and especial
AL RAYYAN, Qatar — Alphonso Davies scored against Croatia on Sunday to give Canada its first-ever goal at the men's World Cup. The goal came 67 seconds into the game. Canada's goalkeeper Milan Borjan set up the play with a long goal kick that found Cyle Larin down field. Larin headed the ball to Tajon Buchanan on the right flank. A cross from Buchanan then found Davies flying through the air and the Bayern Munich star headed the ball past Croatian keeper Dominik Livaković to give Canada a 1-0 le

KYIV/KHERSON, Ukraine (Reuters) -President Volodymyr Zelenskiy warned Ukrainians to expect another brutal week of cold and darkness ahead, predicting more Russian attacks on infrastructure which would not stop until Moscow runs out of missiles. Russia has been launching massive missile bombardments on Ukraine's energy infrastructure roughly weekly since early October, with each attack having greater impact than the last as damage accumulates and winter sets in. In an overnight address, Zelenskiy said he expected new attacks this week that could be as bad as last week's, the worst yet, which left millions of people with no heat, water or power.
The Banff housing crisis is in the middle of a seismic shift as pandemic restrictions lift and tourism sees a V-shaped bounce back to pre-COVID times. Sharon Oakley, manager of housing stability with the Town of Banff, said during the pandemic people were less comfortable sharing close quarters. Instead of having several people sharing rooms, she believes people in town spread out more and began living in less dense settings — a healthy change. But this happened faster than new housing units cou
ST. JOHN'S, N.L. — Newfoundland and Labrador is replacing its crumbling, Victorian-era jail in St. John's, but observers say the facility is not fit to house people in the meantime. Emails obtained by The Canadian Press through access to information legislation show inmates and guards baked inside Her Majesty's Penitentiary last summer in temperatures that reached 28 C, and much higher when humidity was factored in. Halifax lawyer Mike Dull said forcing inmates to endure days at temperatures tha

U.S. stocks ended sharply lower on Monday after protests in major Chinese cities against strict COVID-19 policies sparked concerns about economic growth, while Apple Inc slid on worries about a hit to iPhone production. Shares of the Cupertino, California tech giant weighed heavily on the benchmark S&P 500 index as worker unrest at the world's biggest iPhone factory in China fanned fears of a deeper hit to the already constrained production of higher-end phones. Rare protests in major Chinese cities over the weekend against the country's strict zero-COVID curbs are exacerbating worries about growth in the world's second-largest economy.
In recent months, the rebel group M-23 has seized several towns in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. There is a new ceasefire in place as of Friday, but the question is whether it holds. Mike Armstrong explains.
A former Hydro-Québec employee charged with spying for China was released on bail Monday. Yuesheng Wang, 35, was arrested by the RCMP on Nov. 14 and has been in custody since. Federal prosecutors had opposed his release, saying they considered Wang a flight risk. Wang had argued he was committed to staying in Quebec to clear his name and restore his reputation. The judge said he was satisfied with the $200,000 in financial guarantees put forward by the accused. Wang will also have to turn in his
