Canada is looking at a possible phased approach to adjusting, loosening border measures.
A day before Russian President Vladimir Putin was due to arrive in Geneva for a historic summit with U.S. President Joe Biden, a look-alike was spotted in the Swiss city at a protest calling for the release of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny. Bare-chested and wearing army pants to mimic summer holiday shots of the real Russian president, protester Alexander Lyubuschin donned a Putin face mask and sat in on a bench of a sunny Geneva square, pretending to neck Vodka. Nearby, a few dozen protesters shouted for Navalny's release from a Russian jail where he is serving a 2-1/2 year sentence.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Prosecutors in Tennessee who are preparing for the first-degree murder trial of a Nashville police officer next month may try to call a law enforcement expert witness who served similarly in the case against Derek Chauvin in George Floyd’s death. A judge will consider whether to let Jody Stiger, a Los Angeles Police Department sergeant, take the stand to testify against Officer Andrew Delke. The white officer, now 27, is to stand trial next month in the fatal shooting of
New coal mines in Alberta's Rocky Mountain foothills would create more environmental problems than economic benefits, a lengthy new study has concluded. "The best available information indicates that the magnitude of long-term liabilities to water resources ... are likely to exceed any short-term economic benefits," says the report from the Alces Group, an ecological consulting firm. Alces, hired by landowners near where coal mines are being explored, says current methods to remove toxins such a
An immunization clinic in Peel didn’t just borrow the model of the "Hockey Hub" from Grey-Bruce – 25 staff members were there as well to lend a hand. Both clinical and non-clinic staff from the health unit to the north worked with Peel staff members at the immunization clinic held at the CAA Centre in Brampton on Saturday, Jun. 12, Grey Bruce Public Health said in a press release. “Most of what we do in Public Health is seldom immediate and the benefit is usually long-term before we see results.
EDMONTON — A hearing committee of the Law Society of Alberta says there are reasonable and probable grounds to believe that a lawyer may have committed a criminal offence after "explicit and nude" photos of a woman were included as part of an affidavit in a custody case. The self-governing body has reprimanded lawyer Karen Herrington of Sherwood Park, Alta., for bringing the administration of justice into disrepute and failing to provide competent legal services. She has been reprimanded and ord
Saudi Arabia has executed a man for offences rights groups say he allegedly committed while under the age of 18, despite the kingdom's insistence that it has abolished death sentences for many childhood crimes. Mustafa Hashem al-Darwish was arrested in May 2015 and charged with protest-related offences, many of which occurred when he was 17. The state-backed Human Rights Commission told Reuters in February that the ban only applied to a lesser category of offence under Islamic law known as "ta'zeer."
Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc says the federal government is working with the provinces on a plan for providing proof of vaccination for international travel. He also says the federal government will soon have more to say on a phased approach for reopening the U.S.-Canada border, as the current order is in place until June 21.
The chief of Tobique First Nation says he's satisfied with the New Brunswick RCMP's response to a shooting last Friday but thinks the police agency isn't doing enough to prevent such incidents in the first place. Chief Ross Perley said gun violence has been on the rise in the community in recent years, and the main reason is an increase in drug trafficking by people living either in or around the reserve just north of Perth-Andover. "We've been having these types of situations and it keeps escal
OTTAWA — The Bloc Québécois is taking a second stab at getting MPs to recognize Quebec's right to unilaterally change the Constitution in line with proposed reforms to the province's language law. Leader Yves-François Blanchet tabled a motion Tuesday in the House of Commons asking lawmakers to recognize that right, after confronting a single "nay" from a lone member of Parliament last month that stonewalled the Bloc's initial move. Blanchet's motion seeks to clear a path for House recognition of
Ontario reported 296 additional cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday, the fewest on a single day since last September, as well as the deaths of 13 more people with the illness. The rolling seven-day average of daily cases, one of the most critical indicators of the pandemic's growth or decline, is down to 479, its lowest point since Sept. 29, 2020. The measure peaked in Ontario at nearly 4,400 in April. Labs completed 17,162 tests and Public Health Ontario logged a positivity rate of 2.3 per cent, down
Family and friends who have been kept apart by COVID-19 restrictions in New Brunswick will be able to gather as of midnight tonight as Phase 1 of the province's path to green officially begins. A total of 75.1 per cent of eligible New Brunswickers have now received a first dose of a COVID vaccine. That's just above the threshold the province set to slowly begin loosening restrictions and opening up the borders — a target it had hoped to reach June 7. Up until now, people have been limited to the
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Southern Baptist Convention tamped down a push from the right at its largest meeting in decades on Tuesday, electing a new president who has worked to bridge racial divides in the church and defeating an effort to make an issue of critical race theory. The more than 15,000 delegates in attendance picked as their next leader Ed Litton, a white pastor from Alabama who was nominated by Fred Luter, the only Black pastor to serve as president of the United States’ largest
VICTORIA — Expanded measures are about to take effect to protect the environment while helping people enjoy some of British Columbia's most popular and crowded parks this summer. The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy says the second phase of its free day-use pass pilot program rolls out June 22 in five provincial parks, four of them on the south coast. A statement from the ministry says day-use passes at Joffre Lakes, east of Pemberton, Golden Ears near Maple Ridge, and specifi
REGINA — Saskatchewan is changing self-isolation requirements for residents fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The Ministry of Health says most people who are 14 days past their second dose and asymptomatic will not need to self-isolate if they come in close contact with someone who has tested positive. Premier Scott Moe, who had to self-isolate for ten days earlier in the pandemic, said the new rules should be seen as "a pretty significant benefit of getting vaccinated." Anyone with symptoms —
The Regina Police Service is once again asking for the public's help in locating a missing teen. Alandra Young, 15, was last seen in the 3100 block of Harding Street on June 3. Police said Young is considered vulnerable because of how young she is, and that there is a concern for her well-being and safety. Young is described as around five-feet seven-inches tall, about 120 pounds and thin. She has wavy dark-blond hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing blue leggings, a grey tank top and gl
HALIFAX — Three out of four Atlantic provinces announced Tuesday that they will lift border restrictions and open to travel from across the region beginning next week, while New Brunswick said its opening could come even sooner. Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador said a June 23 reopening is possible because of steadily declining COVID-19 rates across the region. The move means travellers won't have to isolate for 14 days upon entering each province. "This decision wa
A 33-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder, after a 55-year-old woman was found dead in an apartment in the Quebec City neighborhood of Limoilou early Tuesday morning. Quebec City police received a call for a domestic dispute at around 2 a.m., in an apartment building on Duval Avenue, near the corner of Sapinière-Dorion Street, spokesperson Sandra Dion said. At the scene, officers found Nathalie Piché, 55, unresponsive with signs of violence on her body. She was pronounced dead
Yukon's acting chief medical officer of health, Dr. Catherine Elliott, reported the territory's third COVID-19 death on Monday. "The Whitehorse resident was linked to a previous case and was unvaccinated," reads the short news release from the Yukon government. The government also said that a student at Elijah Smith Elementary School in Whitehorse has COVID-19, and parents are being notified. It was one of five cases announced on Monday, two of which are out-of-territory residents. The governmen
NEW YORK (AP) — The tragedies of Brian Wilson's life is a rock ‘n’ roll story well told. The postscript — that he's a survivor nearing age 80 who appears to be supported personally and professionally in a way he never really had before — is less familiar. Despite some uncomfortable moments in “Brian Wilson: Long Promised Road,” that important update is the point of the documentary that premieres Tuesday at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. The film's heart is a series of drives around south
