It's a form of déjà vu for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and it involves government staffers, pandemic-era social gatherings and subsequent apologies. Johnson offered one such apology this past Wednesday for attending a BYOB garden party in May 2020 involving dozens of Downing Street staff, held in contravention of COVID-19 restrictions that Britons were supposed to be following at the time. He acknowledged public "rage" over the fact that "the rules are not being properly followed by th

Simultaneous provincial requests for aid and the sheer number of cases make this Omicron-driven wave of the COVID-19 pandemic different when it comes to Ottawa's response, says Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc.
