"I've got abnormal cervical cells," said the Vancouver woman, who has now been waiting a month for more test results. Strangeway is one of many B.C. women facing the stress of long waits — in some cases six months or longer — for results of their Pap tests, which screen for cervical cancer.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced a new, expanded commodities partnership with Chile on Sunday during a tour of South America that Berlin hopes will help secure more access to critical minerals key to the transition to a green economy.
