ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) — Algeria’s leader declared a three-day period of mourning starting Saturday for former President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, whose 20-year-long rule, riddled with corruption, ended in disgrace as he was pushed from power amid huge street protests when he decided to seek a new term. Bouteflika, who had been ailing since a stroke in 2013, died Friday at 84. His public appearances had been rare in the final years of his presidency, and he had not been seen since President Abdelmadj
A Canadian-led team of scientists has concluded that tropical coral reefs that feed millions around the world have lost about half their ability to support human communities since 1950. "I don't think any of us expected the declines to be as big as we found," said Tyler Eddy of Memorial University, lead author of the paper published Friday in the journal One Earth. The paper is the first to tote up the cumulative effects of threats faced by tropical coral reefs from overfishing to pollution to c
Divers in the Philippines pulled plastic bags, drinks bottles and fishing nets from a coral reef on Saturday, joining an annual cleanup that aims to highlight the impact of garbage on the world's oceans. About a dozen divers cleared rubbish from the reef and nearby beaches as they marked World Cleanup Day in Batangas province, a popular spot for snorkelling and diving south of the capital, Manila. "For every fishing line or net that you remove, you could actually prevent a turtle from dying or getting caught in it or eating a plastic bag," organiser Carmela Sevilla told Reuters, holding up a mesh bag full of garbage.
U.S. envoy John Kerry’s diplomatic quest to stave off the worst scenarios of global warming is meeting resistance from China, the world's biggest climate polluter, which is adamant that the United States ease confrontation over other matters if it wants Beijing to speed up its climate efforts. Rights advocates and Republican lawmakers say they see signs, including softer language and talk of heated internal debate among Biden administration officials, that China’s pressure is leading the United
Montreal police are investigating after an overnight altercation in downtown Montreal left one man in his 20s dead and another injured. The SPVM received a call at around 1:45 a.m. on Saturday, and found two victims near the corner of Sherbrooke and Mansfield Streets — steps away from McGill University. According to Montreal police spokesperson Véronique Dubuc, both men had suffered what appeared to be upper-body injuries from a sharp object. A 23-year-old man was taken to hospital, and his deat

Inside, Williams said, the driver was found suffering multiple gunshot wounds. The man, who has not been identified pending next of kin notification, was pronounced dead shortly after being rushed
Shannon Cutler has been living with a secret for most of her life, but that all changed recently when she posed for a fashion shoot without her wig on. "It was probably the best thing I ever did," said Cutler, who started losing her hair decades ago when she was just five-years-old. "I was emotional that day. In all honesty, there were some tears. But to see other women and to see the inspiration of these young girls that were also there were truly an inspiration to me and I thought, 'You know,
MOSCOW (Reuters) -Jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny's allies accused YouTube and Telegram of censorship on Saturday after the video platform and messaging app restricted access to their anti-government voting recommendations for Russia's parliamentary election. Navalny's allies already accused Alphabet's Google and Apple of buckling under Kremlin pressure on Friday after the companies removed an app from their stores that the activists had hoped to use against the ruling party at the election.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Just one month ago, President Joe Biden and his health advisers announced big plans to soon deliver a booster shot of the coronavirus vaccine to all Americans. But after campaigning for the White House on a pledge to “follow the science,” Biden found himself uncharacteristically ahead of it with that lofty pronouncement. Some of nation's top medical advisers on Friday delivered a stinging rebuke of the idea, in essence telling the White House: not so fast. A key government advi

TORONTO — Major League Soccer has fined Toronto FC defenders Kemar Lawrence and Chris Mavinga for their actions in TFC's 1-0 loss to Inter Miami on Tuesday. The MLS disciplinary committee found Lawrence guilty of failing to leave the field in a timely manner after being red-carded in the 37th minute. Mavinga was guilty of simulation/embellishment in the 48th minute. He went down clutching his face after Miami's Robbie Robinson raised his leg, trying to connect with a ball coming down. The leg di
ATLANTA (AP) — A disaster relief organization founded by actor Sean Penn is boosting Georgia's drive to inoculate people against the coronavirus, though some of its pop-up vaccine clinics have struggled to attract people. CORE has offered COVID shots at hundreds of sites in big and small communities around the state, including schools, farmers' markets and meat plants. But it has had few takers at some locations — a likely reflection, at least in part, of skepticism about vaccines in Georgia. Th
Dufferin County staff, contractors, and volunteers will soon need to show proof of full vaccination to attend in-person work spaces, after council implements a COVID-19 vaccination policy. Dufferin County Council, during their meeting last Thursday (Sept. 9) voted in favour of implementing a vaccination policy, which will go into effect on Nov. 1.

Nova Scotia's premier has clear, harsh words for the small group of people who recently protested outside the province's top doctor's home: "grow up." On Friday evening, Premier Tim Houston released a video message about a small protest outside the Fall River home of Dr. Robert Strang, the province's chief medical officer of health, earlier that day. "There isn't language harsh enough to condemn these actions," Houston said in the video. "I would encourage you all to grow up and think of others.
ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Against the backdrop of the troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, the top U.S. military officer is meeting in Greece with NATO counterparts this weekend, hoping to forge more basing, intelligence sharing and other agreements to prevent terrorist groups from regrouping and threatening America and the region. Army Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the meeting of NATO defense chiefs will focus in part on the way ahead now that all alliance troops have
The Town of Shelburne is warning residents of an invasive plant found in the community which can cause severe burns. Wild parsnip is a member of the carrot/parsley family and with its tall, yellow bunches and resemblance to common non-toxic plants such as Golden Alexander, it can appear harmless. But it’s the plant’s nickname – poison parsnip – that truly heeds warning. While the roots of the plant are edible, when in contact with skin the sap can cause severe burns as well as rashes and blister

LONDON, Ont. — Dareen Shilbayeh can't stop herself from looking over her shoulder while out in public. The London, Ont., resident who wears a hijab says she's been worried she'll be targeted because of her faith ever since a Muslim family was killed in the city this summer. "Every corner I take, even at the mall, when it's a public place, it's like, I have to be careful," said the 19-year-old who grew up in London and is a student at the city's Western University. It's a sentiment many Muslim Ca
