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

Heart attacks have been known to occur while shovelling heavy amounts of snow — here are signs to watch for and how to do it as safely as possible.
President Joe Biden took office at a particularly polarized time in American history, so it's not surprising that citizens are divided on his performance at the one-year mark. A Georgia history teacher who voted for Biden would give him a “C” grade, faulting the president for not pushing earlier to end the filibuster in the Senate but supportive of his Build Back Better plan. A retired nurse in Iowa who supported Pete Buttigieg in the Democratic primary says she's been impressed by the way Biden
Marissa Wiebe has always had a penchant for expressing herself through art. More specifically, she says, she's always been interested in putting "art on things." "I used to draw on my little brother all the time," Wiebe said. "Drawing on the walls, or sidewalk chalk." That natural affinity drew her into tattooing as an adult. Last April, she opened Myrtle Tattoos, her own tattoo parlour located in St. Stephen, N.B., where she practises her craft through the use of a needle and her hand. Wiebe is

The Canadian Real Estate Association's House Price Index rose by 26.6 per cent in the 12 months up to December, the fastest annual pace of gain on record. The group, which represents more than 100,000 realtors and tabulates sales data from homes that listed and sell via the Multiple Listings Service, said the supply of homes for sale at the end of the month hit an all-time low. After pausing for a few weeks in the early days of the pandemic, Canada's housing market has been on an absolute tear f
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

An Ontario woman says she is relieved after a life-saving cancer surgery that's been postponed several times has been rescheduled following the intervention of a patient advocate. Vaughan, Ont., resident Cassandra Di Maria, 30, was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer in November 2020 and has since undergone one surgical procedure in addition to 17 rounds of chemotherapy. She halted her chemo in October to enable her immune system to recover before a second major surgery. That surgery was expe
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
