A rematch three years in the making is the most important game of the season so far for the Vancouver Whitecaps, says head coach Vanni Sartini. The club knows it must beat Cavalry FC in the second round of the Canadian Championship on Wednesday in order to advance — and Vancouver's record against the Canadian Premier League side isn't exactly positive. The 'Caps were heavily favoured when they came up against Cavalry in the 2019 tournament. But Calgary stunned with a 2-1 aggregate win, ousting t

HALIFAX — An active Atlantic hurricane season is expected to begin next week, and experts are urging those in the region to be prepared. Bob Robichaud, a meteorologist with the Canadian Hurricane Centre, says the latest data predicts up to 21 storms this year in the Atlantic Ocean that will be strong enough to warrant a name. That number is on par with last year's 21 named storms and much higher than the 30-year average of 14 named storms in a season, Robichaud said Tuesday. "It's impossible to

KUUJJUAQ, Que. — Daniel Gabois would usually be out hunting this time of year. Flocks of Canada geese have started to appear overhead in their V-formations, returning to nesting grounds in the northern Quebec region of Nunavik. That's the signal for him and many others in his hometown of Kuujjuaq to head out on the land. But the electrician and entrepreneur is working 10- to 12-hour days, trying to finish more work than he can keep up with as companies and governments scramble to fill a critical
Students in Nova Scotia, P.E.I. and Newfoundland and Labrador will no longer be required to wear masks in school, as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, although masks are still recommended.
More than 40 Democratic members of Congress are asking Google to stop what they see as the unnecessary collection and retention of people's location data, arguing the information could be used to identify women seeking abortions. In a letter sent Tuesday to Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google parent Alphabet Inc., the lawmakers express concern that if abortion were to become illegal in the U.S., the company's "current practice of collecting and retaining extensive records of cell phone location dat

HALIFAX — The commission of inquiry investigating the 2020 mass shooting in Nova Scotia has agreed to provide special accommodations for three senior Mounties when they testify about command decisions they made as the tragedy unfolded. Two of the Mounties, Staff Sgt. Brian Rehill and Sgt. Andy O’Brien, will face questions from commission counsel via a Zoom call that will be recorded and broadcast at a later date. Josh Bryson, a lawyer who represents the family of two of the killer's 22 victims,
Keri Lewis has a double insurance maze to navigate. Both her home and her workplace in Ottawa were hit hard by Saturday's storm, which ripped through parts of Ontario and Quebec, uprooting trees, cutting power to nearly 900,000 homes and leaving at least 10 people dead. "It was nuts. It just like came so fast," Lewis, 43, said in a phone interview Tuesday. "It was like a freight train going hundreds of kilometres an hour past our house ... and there was no visibility, it was just like a sheet of
When researchers at the University of Saskatchewan began to find bits of COVID-19 they couldn't identify earlier this month, they began to get curious. According to readings released on May 8, samples taken from Saskatoon's wastewater showed that 3.2 per cent were listed as "other lineages" and were not identified as the BA.2 variant of Omicron, which made up the vast majority of samples being taken (96.8 per cent). As a result, the researchers decided to send the mystery samples from Saskatoon

It was created by a wide range of Albertans including Indigenous groups, municipalities, hunters, anglers, ranchers, rural lando
MONTREAL — Canadian fashion mogul Peter Nygard's sexual assault and forcible confinement case in Quebec will return to a Montreal courtroom July 8. Nygard remains detained in Toronto and did not appear during the brief hearing before a judge at the Montreal courthouse. Laurence Juillet, a lawyer for Nygard, asked for the delay while her client's other pending sex crime cases move through the courts. Nygard faces one count of sexual assault and one count of forcible confinement in Quebec. The cri
On Bathurst Street just north of Davenport, where the street begins to slope steeply, are two massive billboards with advertisements sitting side-by-side. They've been up for decades, but whether they are legal is a whole other question. "They're in violation of the city's signed bylaws, which are designed to protect public spaces from having billboards everywhere," said Dave Meslin, a volunteer with a group called the Toronto Public Space Committee. "And the city doesn't seem to want to do anyt

WASHINGTON (AP) — With Congress deadlocked over how to address racism and excessive use of force, President Joe Biden plans to sign an executive order on policing Wednesday, the second anniversary of George Floyd's death. The decision reflects Biden's struggle to use the limited powers of his office to advance his campaign promises, as well as his attempt to strike a balance between police and civil rights groups at a time when rising concerns about crime are eclipsing calls for reform. Most of
The high inflation rate on P.E.I. is putting some businesses in the position of paying more to operate or charging more for services. In April, the inflation rate on P.E.I. was 8.9 per cent, the highest of any jurisdiction in the country. It means higher costs for items that need to be shipped in, such as baskets for plants at VK Greenhouses in Charlottetown. The greenhouse has had to increase the price of everything by at least 10 per cent to make a profit, said Peter Meijer, operations manager
