A Manitoba sunflower farmer opens up his field to people seeking selfies, with the profits going to charity.
This story goes way back - in a chaotic but fantastic town there was once a traveler, a robbery, and a chance to improve the lives of so many people.
Tomorrow marks one year since the Taliban recaptured Afghanistan's capital city Kabul. By the end of August 2021, the last U.S. troops had left the country. Since then, international sanctions against the regime have helped drive the Afghan economy into a downward spiral. The U.N. says millions of people face hunger, or worse. As Redmond Shannon reports, solving that problem could mean the West having to confront a difficult dilemma.
About 1,200 people have been driven out of their homes in parts of Valenicia, Spain as firefighters in the southeast try to contain three separate wildfires.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Elections in Wyoming and Alaska on Tuesday could relaunch the political career of a former Republican star and effectively end the career of another — at least for now. Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney is the vice chair of a U.S. House committee seeking to expose the truth behind former President Donald Trump's relentless efforts to stay in power after losing the 2020 election, and his role in fomenting the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Cheney's determination to prevent Trump
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
The Calgary fire and police departments are investigating a suspicious fire that burned through an abandoned building in Kensington early Sunday morning. The Calgary Fire Department (CFD) responded to reports of a structure fire in the 1100 block of Gladstone Road N.W. around 12:45 a.m. Sunday morning. A second alarm was immediately called to make sure enough resources were on scene, according to a CFD news release. Fire crews faced "significant smoke and visible flame" from inside the three-sto
Some buyers who years ago purchased builds in a housing development in Stayner, Ont., are fuming and calling for government intervention after they were told they would need to fork over $175,000 above what was agreed upon in contracts with the developer before their homes will finally be built. CBC News has spoken with multiple people who bought homes in the Ashton Meadows development roughly 125 kilometres north of Toronto, and who say that in recent weeks, Briarwood Development Group has told
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
A Mountie who was fired after he showed a revealing photo of himself to an assault victim and exchanged sexual texts with her during an investigation fought successfully to get his job back by arguing he was denied a proper hearing. An adjudicator pointed to flaws in the way the case against Const. Andrew Scott Hedderson played out, reinstated him and awarded him back pay, according to a decision recently made public and posted on the RCMP's website. The adjudicator also ordered a second hearing
Chief Mi'sel Joe says Miawpukek doesn't get as much snow as it used to. Joe said he used to be on the fence about whether climate change was having a tangible impact on the environment surrounding Miawpukek, a Mi'kmaw community on Conne River on the south coast of Newfoundland, but not anymore. "Things I've seen in the last few years have really convinced me that the world is changing as we know it," he said in an interview with CBC News. Joe said when he grew up, the ice was thick enough to dri
Prices of homes in New Brunswick are rising at a steady pace while large declines are reported in Canadian cities to the west, according to newly released statistics. In a report Monday, the Canadian Real Estate Association said the average home price was $629,971 in July, compared with June's average price of $665,850. The drop is steeper when the Greater Toronto and Vancouver areas are removed from the figures. However, in the Atlantic region, prices are mostly continuing to rise but at a slow

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Vermont farmer Brian Kemp is used to seeing the pastures at Mountain Meadows Farm grow slower in the hot, late summer, but this year the grass is at a standstill. That's “very nerve-wracking” when you're grazing 600 to 700 cattle, said Kemp, who manages an organic beef farm in Sudbury. He describes the weather lately as inconsistent and impactful, which he attributes to a changing climate. “I don’t think there is any normal anymore," Kemp said. The impacts of climate chan
Canadian North's direct flight between Iqaluit and Toronto will be ending after the September long weekend, about a month earlier than expected. "We were planning to run it through September, and we were keeping a sharp eye on it as well, just if there was the volume we would maintain the route," said Michael Rodyniuk, president and chief executive officer of Canadian North. He said the number of passengers taking the flight was "a little lighter than expected" and the company is reallocating th
Renters in Ottawa are finding it increasingly difficult to secure affordable housing as rent prices soar to record-breaking heights and the number of listings continues to drop. The latest data from RentFaster, a popular rental listings site in Canada, shows the average monthly price for a two-bedroom apartment, condo, townhouse, duplex or house in the city exceeded $2,000 per month for the first time this spring, reaching nearly $2,100 by mid-summer. Meanwhile, the number of two-bedroom units a
When the bell rang at the Old Holy Trinity Church in Middleton, N.S., on Sunday, it was no ordinary toll. It marked the 231st anniversary of the first congregation held at the historic church on Aug. 14, 1791. The church is one of the oldest, and largely unaltered, churches of its kind in Canada, according to Brian McConnell, chair of the Old Holy Trinity Heritage Trust. The church was active until 1893, when a new church was built in the community. Despite no longer being the main church of the
While inflation may be hurting ordinary Quebecers' pocketbooks, it's done the opposite for a provincial government that has seen its projected deficit shrink by billions of dollars, according to a report released Monday ahead of the fall election campaign. The government's projected finances are "plausible" despite global economic uncertainty that threatens to darken the rosy picture, said auditor general Guylaine Leclerc, who was tasked with reviewing a pre-election financial report by Quebec's
With the second week of the 2022 Canada Summer Games just underway in Niagara, Ont., Gary Martin, the chef de mission for Team Newfoundland and Labrador is already calling the competition the province's "best Games ever." Martin said para swimmer Nathan Luscombe of Grand Falls-Windsor started off on the right track on Day 1, earning Newfoundland and Labrador's first medal: a bronze in the 400-metre freestyle. There have been other high points in the first week: Jaida Lee, 16, who became the firs
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.
