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
In Dallas, the coach of the Golden State Warriors Steve Kerr did not want to talk about basketball. He urged Congress to mandate background checks for gun purchases in the wake of the deadly shooting at a Texas grade school. (May 24)
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
The P.E.I. Beekeepers Association is worried the theft of a hive, rare on the Island but relatively common in some parts of Canada and the U.S., may become more of a regular occurrence. "It's heartbreaking, because this is no different than a cattle farmer losing a couple of calves, or someone stealing cattle," said association president Troy Fraser. "This is our livestock, our livelihood." RCMP reported the theft of the hive in a news release Tuesday. Police said the hive was one of many at a p
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says 15 people were killed in a shooting Tuesday at an elementary school. Abbott says the suspected shooter, an 18-year-old man, also died and was believed to be killed by responding officers. (May 24)

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

For Japan, U.S. President Joe Biden's comment he would be willing to use force to defend Taiwan signalled no formal change in policy. Biden's remark on Monday - during his first Asia visit since taking office - appeared to stretch the limits of the U.S. policy of "strategic ambiguity" toward self-ruled Taiwan, to China's anger. While the United States has a commitment under its Taiwan Relations Act "to help provide Taiwan the means to defend itself", it has long declined to make clear how it might react in the event of a Chinese attack on the island.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Grass in office parks, on college campuses or in some California neighborhoods will go brown this summer after state water officials adopted a ban Tuesday on watering certain green spaces as the state's drought drags on. The ban adopted by the State Water Resources Control Board follows Gov. Gavin Newsom's plea for Californians to use less water or face broad, mandatory restrictions on water use. The board also voted to require local water districts to adopt stricter co
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
