That's where Hann, who had been active in Corner Brook labour and community politics for decades, decided his future lay with Baikie in Labrador. Baikie, who had taught in North West River, says she was sick for about a year, and stayed in the home until she got better. That's where she met Hann, who recently turned 85. "She was sitting alone

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Antonio Delgado will be sworn in Wednesday as New York's next lieutenant governor, Gov. Kathy Hochul announced. Hochul said Monday she will issue a proclamation for a special election to fill her fellow Democrat's seat in upstate New York once he resigns. It remains unclear when that will be. Once a seat becomes vacant, the governor has 10 days to announce a special election held 70 to 80 days later, according to state law. Hochul said the special election will line
Zooming on your bike on a sunny day is an integral part of childhood. But not everyone finds it easy to learn how to get on that bike. Some kids have coordination problems, anxiety, other physical learning challenges. That's where You Can Ride 2 comes in. It's a free, six-week learn-to-ride program for kids ages eight to 12. The New Brunswick chapter is run by coach and pediatric physiotherapist Sue Lawton. "A lot of these kids who are older and haven't learned to ride yet, they think that they

Police later confirmed the body they recovered was that of the girl that went missing in the same river on May 12 in Sainte-Adèle. The teenager, whose identity and age has not been made public, was st
The Vancouver Police Department says an attack on an 87-year-old Chinatown resident on Friday morning appears to be racially motivated. According to police, the senior was out for a morning walk and was standing near a bus stop close to the intersection of Pender Street and Columbia Street when a man came up to him around 11:40 a.m. PT Friday. The suspect allegedly made racist comments and bear-sprayed the senior in the face. The suspect then ran away, while nearby business staff and passersby h
LONDON (AP) — Mohamed Salah and Son Heung-min finished the Premier League season tied as the top scorers on Sunday with 23 goals.

It is the first time Son has topped the scoring chart. Both players scored on the final day. Salah netted Liverpool's second goal in the 3-1 win over Wolverhampton and Son had a double in Tottenham's 5-0 vict

Ontario reported at least 809 people in hospital with COVID-19 on Sunday, down by more than 300 from Saturday and down by 215 from a week earlier. However, more than 10 per cent of hospitals did not submit their data, as happens occasionally on the weekend, so the number is anticipated to be higher. Of those in hospital, 152 required intensive care — a decrease of eight from the previous day's total — and 72 patients needed the help of a ventilator to breathe. The province reported at least 1,05
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. Many related trade deals, regardless of their content, had become politically toxic for U.S. voters, who associated them with job losses. So Biden came up with a replacement. 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

MILAN (AP) — AC Milan secured its first Serie A title in 11 years on Sunday with a 3-0 win at Sassuolo. The city of Milan is already swarming with a sea of celebrating red-and-black fans. Thousands of fans had started gathering in Milan's Piazza del Duomo, in front of the iconic cathedral, even before the Rossoneri clinched its 19th scudetto. And it was the man who thrives in the big occasions who helped Milan do it, as veteran forward Olivier Giroud scored twice to set his side on the way to th
A chance discovery of nearly-forgotten, close to half-century-old kokanee salmon samples from Kluane National Park and Reserve are helping shape present-day conservation efforts. Using modern techniques, researchers at the University of British Columbia (UBC) Okanagan campus extracted DNA from the historic fin and scale samples, collected as part of routine field work in the 1970s and early '80s, and compared it to recent samples from wild and hatchery-raised kokanee. The salmon currently in the
MIDDLETON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Republicans voted Saturday not to endorse anyone for governor ahead of the GOP primary in August, with former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch falling just short of the 60% needed to get the nod — and cash — that comes with winning the party's official backing. It marked the first time delegates have not endorsed a candidate for governor. Many activists, and one of Kleefisch's rivals, had argued for not endorsing anyone, saying it would fracture the party. The Republic

A Nova Scotia First Nation has launched a moderate livelihood lobster fishery in Cape Breton with approval from the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans. 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.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Based on the barrage of television ads and mailers leading up to Tuesday's primary election in Arkansas, it's obvious who the most influential Republicans in the state are. Tom Cotton's making the case for fellow Sen. John Boozman, talking up his conservative bona fides while the two-term senator fends off challenges from the right.
