Back in the U.S., days after the FBI search for top secret files at Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump's potential legal problems seem to keep piling up. The former president now claims authorities seized executive-privileged material and is demanding them back. While a spokesperson has said that Trump had a standing order that documents taken to his Florida home were deemed "declassified." As Jennifer Johnson reports, those claims aren't holding up.
MONTREAL — Quebec's new language law has dozens of municipalities in the province shoring up their bilingual status, with few considering giving up the right to serve their citizens in both English and French. Almost 90 cities, towns or boroughs in Quebec are considered officially bilingual, a designation allowing them to offer services, post signage and mail communications in the country's two official languages. Jurisdictions without this status must communicate only in French, with few except
In 2016, Joshua Holden, an award-winning American puppeteer, created a special show to perform at the Puppets Up! festival in Almonte, Ont. He'd hoped to perform again, but the international festival that had been running since 2005 was discontinued after the 2016 edition due to a lack of funding and volunteers. However, Puppets Up! has returned this weekend — and Holden will be there once again. After performing across North America, Holden said he was happy to return to Almonte, a town about 5
After a two-year break, wood carvers got a chance to show off their artistic talent in Saint Andrews. The 15th annual New Brunswick Wood Carving Competition welcomed carvers from around the province this weekend, and from as far away as British Columbia and Alabama. Like most other events, the competition took a two-year break because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Gord Willett, an organizer with the New Brunswick Woodcarving Association, said the competition is likely the second largest one in Canad
After a late start to the season, some sunflower growers on P.E.I. are optimistic about what lies ahead for the beloved flower. Crystal Burke-Cheverie, who helps run Fortune Bridge Farms in Souris, P.E.I., says dry weather over the last month was making it difficult for sunflowers to bloom. However, recent rain means flowers are now in bloom and the demand is high, Burke-Cheverie said. "They seem to be really popular all over the Island. Everyone you talk to likes sunflowers," she said. This Sat
Peel police have arrested 24 people, which they say has resulted in the dismantling of an organized crime group operating across southern Ontario. Police say the probe began earlier this year in the Peel Region and Greater Toronto Area, with funding help from the Ontario government. It expanded with the assistance of Canada Border Services Agency, the RCMP, the OPP, the Toronto Police Service, York Regional Police Service, Halton Regional Police Service, Peterborough Police Service, and Vancouve
For parents of transgender children, normal kids' activities — like going to summer camp — aren't so simple. Jan Gootjes, a New Brunswick mother of a transgender boy, knows this all too well. She regularly screens programs and activities to make sure they'll welcome him, will use his correct pronouns and provide the right accommodations. That's what she did one day in the summer of 2020, when her son asked if he could go to Caton's Island summer camp and stay in a cabin with his male friends. Bu
Rudy Holik only has a few months to live — and one of his last wishes is to give away his 10-metre long, hand-built steel boat to someone who can make use of it. In 1994, the Calgary man started building his steel vessel, which weighs more than 4,500 kilograms, in the backyard of his small home in the city's southwest. Now, with a terminal cancer diagnosis and his 80th birthday in October, Holik says he wants to pass the boat on to someone else's skilled hands. "Many people are surprised," Holik
Alberta Premier Jason Kenney condemned a controversial prize-winning essay that's been criticized for being sexist and racist during his provincewide radio call-in program, but also appeared to downplay the controversy it generated. The topic was the first that host Wayne Nelson raised during Saturday's show on CHQR and CHED, and Kenney responded there was "clearly a breakdown" in how the judges assessed the essays, adding they "screwed up." Nelson had noted in the opening of the program that wh
The two major forest fires in central Newfoundland haven't shrunk and remain out of control, officials said Saturday, but air quality risk to nearby communities remains low. The Paradise Lake fire size is still 17,233 hectares, or 172 square kilometres, the same as it was on Friday, while the Bay d'Espoir Highway fire also remains at 5,614.0 hectares. Crews continued to work the sites through Saturday, using water bombers and helicopters with buckets, according to the Department of Forestry. A s
Quebec's auditor general is releasing her review today of the finance minister's pre-election report on the province's finances. Guylaine Leclerc is tasked with determining whether the financial forecasts, estimates and assumptions made ahead of the October provincial election are plausible. Finance Minister Eric Girard will present his pre-election financial report later today, after Leclerc releases her review. The purpose of Leclerc's review is to ensure that the party that wins the Oct. 3 el
MONTREAL — The Quebec Liberal Party (PLQ) has a new slogan: "Real issues. Real solutions." The tagline was announced Saturday by party leader Dominique Anglade during her opening speech at the 40th convention of the party's youth wing in Montreal, less than two months before the Oct. 3 provincial election. Anglade focused on cost-of-living issues, highlighting the dizzying rise of inflation, home prices and grocery bills. She accused Premier François Legault's Coalition Avenir Québec, which is l
A Manitoba farmer is continuing his tradition of helping people take the ultimate sunflower-themed selfies — while also raising money to stamp out hunger and defuse a thorny problem some producers face from picture-hunting trespassers. Dean Toews, who farms just outside of MacGregor, Man., has again planted a large field of sunflowers in hopes of attracting Instagrammers to come, snap pics and make a voluntary donation to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Toews is the chair of Feed Other Countries U
NOVOSELIVKA, Ukraine (AP) — As battles raged around Kyiv, one Russian advance was stopped in front of Maria Metla’s home. Artillery gutted most of the house, while the rest was pulverized by tank fire. Metla, 66, is now counting on her neighbors to have somewhere to live this winter. Crews of volunteers turn up on most mornings to prize away anything that can be reused ‒ setting up neat piles of bricks, destroyed kitchen appliances for scrap metal, and chunks of insulation panels. The salvaged m
