The department issued a statement Friday saying it came to an understanding with the We’koqma’q First Nation that authorizes fishers in the community to harvest and sell their catch in accordance with the Netukulimk Livelihood Fisheries Plan.

It was Invercargill all over again. When Orathai Chongmee stepped off the plane in St. John's in 2007 to start her first semester at MUN, she couldn't help but worry that she was — once again — being dumped off by the ocean in the middle of nowhere.. After spending Grade 10 at the southernmost tip of New Zealand (Chongmee does not recommend Invercargill as a place to go on holiday) and her high school years just outside Brisbane, Australia, one might ask how the Bangkok-raised sociology student

TOKYO (AP) — President Joe Biden faced a dilemma on trade in Asia: He couldn't just rejoin the Trans-Pacific Partnership that his predecessor had pulled the U.S. out of in 2017.

During Biden's visit to Tokyo, the U.S. on Monday planned to announce the countries that are joining the new Indo-Pacific Economic Framework. In th

The City of Edmonton is considering turning a chunk of 102 Avenue in downtown Edmonton into a pedestrian-focused corridor. The possibility of banning vehicles on the stretch of 102nd Avenue, from 99th to 103rd Street, is discussed in a new city report. That portion of 102nd Avenue has been closed for LRT construction, but the current plan is to eventually reopen one lane to eastbound vehicle traffic. One community group hopes the space could become a space for walking, chairs and tables, and pos
