MONTREAL — Summer camp season in Quebec has been cut short for hundreds of children who have been sent home due to COVID-19 outbreaks, only a few days after the start to some of the province's overnight camps. Outbreaks, mostly among counsellors, have shut down at least three overnight camps across the province, Éric Beauchemin, with an association representing Quebec summer camps, said Tuesday. "People were getting infected one after the other and before losing 25 of them, parents were asked to
Footage has emerged showing the chaotic scene during and after a gunman fired on an Independence Day parade from a rooftop in suburban Chicago, spraying the crowd with gunshots initially mistaken for fireworks, killing at least six people. (July 5)
Dozens of Quebec broadcasters have signed a letter urging Radio-Canada not to apologize over the use of the N-word on air in 2020. The CRTC has ruled the French arm of the CBC should issue a written apology following a complaint, a decision some argue attacks press freedom.
Perhaps beavers need holidays too, from all that dam maintenance — especially on Canada Day. Officials say a major washout on the Alaska Highway in B.C. over the holiday weekend was caused by a broken beaver dam that sent a torrent of water through the area, sweeping away a section of the highway in northern B.C. and causing major disruptions for travellers and truckers before a detour opened to traffic on Monday. "There was, you know, quite a bit of water there," said George Smith, a manager wi
Alberta is expanding eligibility for support programs for newly arriving Ukrainian refugees, Premier Jason Kenney said at a news conference Monday. Starting July 25, new arrivals will be eligible for temporary assistance for six months to cover basic expenses such as food, clothing and rent. Kenney said the additional supports are expected to cost between $15 million and $38 million, depending on how many Ukrainians arrive in the coming months. Ukrainian arrivals with children under 12 can apply
Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for Windsor and Essex County for Monday and Tuesday. The weather authority warns temperatures will be near 31 C, with humidex values in the low forties on Tuesday. Overnight, lows are expected to be about 21 C, which will offer little relief. Environment Canada said the hot temperatures can cause deteriorating air quality. The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit has issued a heat warning based off of Environment Canada's information, warning residents to
Nova Scotia will lift all remaining community COVID-19 restrictions, including isolation requirements, on Wednesday. Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia's chief medical officer of health, made the announcement Monday. "We're at a place now with our epidemiology and our ongoing adaptation to COVID being with us for the long term, that we feel ... it's appropriate to do what many other provinces have already done and make some adjustments to our last remaining restrictions in the areas of isolation, ma
Pope Francis has dismissed reports that he plans to resign in the near future, saying he is on track to visit Canada this month and hopes to be able to go to Moscow and Kyiv as soon as possible after that. In an exclusive interview in his Vatican residence, Francis also denied rumours that he had cancer, joking that his doctors "didn't tell me anything about it", and for the first time gave details of the knee condition that has prevented him carrying out some duties. In a 90-minute conversation on Saturday afternoon, conducted in Italian, with no aides present, the 85-year-old pontiff also repeated his condemnation of abortion following the U.S. Supreme Court ruling last month.
A man was rushed to hospital in critical condition Tuesday afternoon following a shooting on Banff Avenue in south Ottawa, first responders say. The shooting happened around 12:40 p.m. in the middle of an Ottawa Community Housing complex, near a park and community centre.

There is a growing number of animals looking to find new homes in Toronto as owners who bought pandemic pets at the height of COVID-19 return to work — or struggle with the rising cost of looking after them, city officials warn.
OTTAWA — Canada is about to toss more than half of its doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine because it couldn't find any takers for it either in or outside of Canada. A statement from Health Canada says 13.6 million doses of the vaccine expired in the spring and will be thrown out. A year ago Canada said it would donate almost 18 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine to lower-income countries. As of June 22, almost nine million doses were delivered to 21 different nations. But Hea
The pressure on the province's college of physicians to make it easier to access the abortion pill is ramping up, as hundreds of doctors have signed an open letter calling for the removal of several restrictions that are in place in Quebec, but not in the rest of Canada. The abortion pill has been available and free in Quebec since 2018. But those in the province seeking to end their pregnancies face additional hurdles to access the abortion pill, also known as a medical abortion. Unlike elsewhe
