Cougar Project, led by students and faculty at the University of B.C.'s Okanagan campus, has been running since January 2020.

SAN MARINO (AP) — Residents in the tiny republic of San Marino voted overwhelmingly Sunday to legalize abortion, rejecting a 150-year-old law that had criminalized it and becoming the latest majority Catholic state to approve the procedure under certain circumstances, according to nearly complete returns.

Taiwan's main opposition party elected former leader Eric Chu as its chairman on Saturday with a pledge to renew stalled talks with China, which has ramped up military and political pressure against the island Beijing claims as its own territory. Chu, 60, a former mayor of New Taipei City, beat Kuomintang (KMT) incumbent Johnny Chiang and two other contenders in the chairmanship election, though he will not take over immediately. The KMT was trounced in presidential and parliamentary elections last year, having failed to cast off the ruling Democratic Progressive Party's (DPP) accusations a vote for them was no more than a vote for China.
UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Amid an outcry over the U.S. treatment of Haitian asylum-seekers, the beleaguered island country's embattled prime minister pointedly said that inequalities and conflict drive migration, but he stopped short of directly criticizing Washington over the issue. “We do not wish to challenge the right of a sovereign state to control the entry borders into its territory, or to send back to the country of origin those who enter a country illegally,” Prime Minister Ariel Henry said

MAPLE RIDGE, B.C. — British Columbia's homicide team is investigating the discovery of a body found inside a pick up truck destroyed by fire in Maple Ridge. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says in a statement it has taken over the investigation, but also says it's unknown if the discovery is related to the Lower Mainland's ongoing gang conflict.

Labour's deputy leader Angela Rayner launched a war of words against Britain's Conservative Party, describing Prime Minister Boris Johnson's cabinet as "scum" for its views and accusing it of abandoning poorer people during the COVID-19 pandemic. Britain's main opposition party, under new leader Keir Starmer, has struggled to make its case since Johnson became prime minister in 2019 having won over many of Labour's traditional supporters in northern and central England. Speaking to Labour members at the party's conference in the southern English town of Brighton late on Saturday, Rayner called the Conservative government "a bunch of scum, homophobic, racist, misogynistic, absolute pile ... of banana republic ... Etonian ... piece of scum".

Huawei Technologies Co Ltd Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou, the daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei, flew back to China on Friday after reaching an agreement with U.S. prosecutors to end a bank fraud case against her. Soon after Meng flew to China, Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor - two Canadians detained by Chinese authorities just days after Meng's arrest in Vancouver in December 2018 on a U.S. warrant - were released by Beijing.

As the N.W.T. government prepares to develop a mandatory vaccine plan for government workers, CBC asked other employers how they're handling vaccinations among staff.

RAMALLAH, West Bank (Reuters) -Israeli troops killed five Hamas militants in gun battles during raids on Sunday against one of the group's cells in the occupied West Bank, an Israeli military spokesperson said. The shootouts marked the deadliest violence between Israel and Hamas since an 11-day Gaza war in May and threatened to raise tensions along the Israeli border with the coastal enclave and in the West Bank. A military spokesperson said, "as far as we are concerned, all those killed were armed Hamas operatives, taking part in firefights", but added he was checking the relative's information.
