The central bank's Business Outlook Survey Indicator reached its highest level on record in the fourth quarter, which was conducted before the Omicron coronavirus variant began spreading widely. The data will play into the Bank of Canada's calculations as it ponders when to raise rates. "The combination of strong demand and bottlenecks in supply is expected to put upward pressure on prices over the next year," said the survey.
More than a decade after they began, negotiations on flood claim settlements between several First Nations in southeastern Manitoba and northwestern Ontario and the federal and provincial governments appear to be drawing to a close. But some are wondering what those settlements will mean for the First Nations affected — and why it's taken so long to address flooding caused by dams that were built over a century ago. "Why has it taken 134 years?" asks Chief John Thunder of Buffalo Point First Nat
It's mid-January, and most people who celebrate have taken down their Christmas trees and either boxed them up, put them out on the curb for pickup, or turned them into firewood. But what if Christmas trees weren't just 'Christmas' trees? What if trees were decorated for all occasions — Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter and Halloween? Two Prince George, B.C., women are doing just that. Carol Jensen has given her Christmas tree new life by leaving it up year-round and decorating it to su

OTTAWA — Environment Canada is warning residents of southern Ontario and Quebec to brace for a winter storm, prompting some school boards to revisit their plans to reopen classrooms Monday. The federal forecaster says a low-pressure system around the Great Lakes could dump snow on parts of Ontario starting Sunday night, while a storm brewing in the United States is making its way to southern Quebec. Snowfall and storm warnings are in effect across much of Ontario, with regions including Niagara,
The continued surge of the Omicron variant in Canada’s North has created an urgent need for more health-care workers, especially in the most remote communities. Ottawa says help and supplies are on the way, but some places are still waiting.
Four deaths were reported as COVID-19 hospitalizations in New Brunswick jumped to 115 on Sunday. A person age 50 to 59 in the Saint John region, a person 60 to 69 in the Edmundston region and two people in the Bathurst region — one 60 to 69 and the other 70 to 79, died due to the virus, according to the province.

Ontario reported 3,887 hospitalizations of people with COVID-19 on Monday, with 578 of those patients in ICU. It is important to note that not all hospitals in the province report hospitalization figures on weekends, so the real number could be higher. The province also reported 8,521 new cases of COVID-19 — however, that number is not a reliable indicator of the true spread of the virus given restricted testing access. Officials also reported 22 more deaths. Health Minister Christine Elliott al
One of the most famous planes in B.C.'s history, a Martin Mars water bomber used to carry and drop vast amounts of water on wildfires, is for sale for $5 million. "The opportunity to purchase and preserve a unique part of aviation history is now available for the discerning buyer, or donor," says the listing from the California-based seller, Platinum Fighter Sales. The signature red and white plane, beloved by many throughout the province, was brought into service in the late 1950s as a powerful
MONTREAL — Thousands of elementary and high school students are set to return to in-person learning across Quebec on Monday, but parents say they're concerned the province hasn't done enough to ensure classrooms safety amid COVID-19's virulent fifth wave. Premier François Legault announced last week he would proceed with a plan to reopen schools to in-person learning on Jan. 17 even as pandemic-related infection rates and hospitalizations continue to mount provincewide. The government promised a
An Island man who sexually abused a teenage girl has been sentenced to seven years in federal prison. Nicholas James Gallant, 38, of Charlottetown pleaded guilty to two charges: sexual exploitation of a person age 14 to 18, and sexual touching. The incidents took place in Charlottetown over a period of time beginning around June, 2019. The victim's identity is protected by court order. Chief Provincial Court Judge Jeff Lantz handed down the seven-year prison sentence Dec. 20. Gallant had been in
WASHINGTON (AP) — From the inaugural platform, President Joe Biden saw American sickness on two fronts — a disease of the national spirit and the one from the rampaging coronavirus — and he saw hope, because leaders always must see that. “End this uncivil war,” he implored Americans on Jan. 20, 2021. Of the pathogen, he said: “We can overcome this deadly virus." Neither malady has abated. For Biden, it's been a year of lofty ambitions grounded by the unrelenting pandemic, a tough hand in Congres
(Reuters) -A gunman who took four people hostage at a Dallas-area synagogue and was himself killed as federal agents stormed the temple was identified on Sunday as a British citizen, while police in England said they had detained two teenagers for questioning in the investigation. The daylong siege at the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, about 16 miles northeast of Fort Worth, Texas, ended in gunfire Saturday night with all four hostages released unharmed and with the suspect dead. It was not clear whether the gunman took his own life or was slain by members of the FBI hostage rescue team.
Thirty people gathered for a sombre vigil in Carcross, Yukon, Saturday afternoon to remember those they've lost to opioids and support the grieving families they've left behind. The Carcross/Tagish First Nation declared a state of emergency last week after three of their members died from drug use. Lyndsay Amato, the vigil's organizer, said it's a way to mark these losses, but also a time to pressure the territorial government for more harm reduction support outside of Yukon's major centres. "I
Phillip Howard pointed toward a stack of black ski pants piled atop a counter in his winter sports shop as evidence of the hurdles small business owners still face as the pandemic drags on. Instead, they came from China the first week of January, delayed by supply-chain failures. "Late-arriving product really kills us," Howard said this week, noting that several other items had also arrived late, missing his pre-holiday sales season.
IQALUIT, Nunavut — The City of Iqaluit says it is working to find an alternate source of drinking water following a recurrence of fuel odours in its municipal water distribution system. In an update posted to social media on Sunday, the city says the water that's been tested remains safe under Canadian guidelines. But it says it recognizes residents may be uncomfortable consuming or using tap water that has residual odours of fuel, which is why it says it's working to provide an alternative sour
The National Tsunami Warning Center has cancelled sweeping advisories that blanketed much of coastal British Columbia on Saturday and cautioned residents to be mindful of potential strong currents and waves along local shorelines. The advisories, issued early on Saturday morning and lifted shortly after 3 p.m. local time, followed a volcanic eruption in the Pacific Basin near the Tonga Islands. It had been in place for four zones, including Haida Gwaii, the central coast, and the northeast and o
