    North Korea's box of bones: A mythical king and the dream of Korean unification

    On a divided Korean peninsula, tales of King Dangun - the mythical founder of the first Korean kingdom more than 4,350 years ago - play a quiet but persistent role in keeping the dream of reunification alive. This mythology made an appearance in September when North Korean leader Kim Jong Un took South Korean President Moon Jae-in to the top of Mount Paektu, the supposed birthplace of Dangun. Moon also invoked the legend in an unprecedented speech in Pyongyang, calling for Korea to be reunited.

    One year to election: Trudeau Liberals gear up for tussles on climate, premiers

    Twelve months from now, Canadians will pass judgment on the Trudeau government and decide whether its first mandate should be its last or if it deserves another four years. As the one-year countdown to the next federal election on Oct. 21, 2019 starts ticking, Justin Trudeau's Liberals appear reasonably well positioned to win a second term. In particular, they're aiming to upend the introduction of a carbon tax — one of Trudeau's signature policies, the central pillar of the Liberal plan for combating climate change.

    Leafs' offence stalls again in loss to Blues

    Pucks were flying in for the Toronto Maple Leafs through seven games, with a couple of the final scores looking like something out of the 1980s instead of 2018. "We scored early, we scored easy, it was pretty loose and everything was great," Leafs head coach Mike Babcock said of his team's league-high 33 goals in starting 6-1-0. "Now we're finding out it's the NHL, it's hard to score, teams compete hard on you, teams adjust and they're going to play you hard.

    'Complete control': Apple accused of overpricing, restricting device repairs

    Apple often overestimates the cost of repairs to its products and threatens third-party shops who are willing to fix them for a fraction of the price, a CBC News investigation has learned. Customers who enter an Apple Store with a seemingly minor hardware problem, such as a flickering screen, are often faced with a large bill because they are told they need to replace major parts of the device. Apple only allows its devices to be repaired by Apple Store technicians or "authorized" service centres in order for them to remain within warranty.

    'You can't do this to people': Sixties Scoop survivors tell their stories in Winnipeg

    Shannon Marks and her mother Linda Dwyar may be together today, but they are still working at putting together the pieces of a relationship torn apart for more than two decades. Marks and her baby sister were taken from Dwyar in 1969, in what we now call the Sixties Scoop. Dwyar was living in BC at the time, and had taken her daughters to a child welfare agency looking for help to get away from an an abusive relationship.

    Assisted death providers worry new rules could affect patient access

    As Health Canada prepares to introduce new reporting requirements on Nov. 1 for clinicians involved with medical assistance in dying, practitioners and observers are lauding the changes, but also raising concerns about what they could mean for providers and patients. Assisted death was legalized in Canada in June 2016, but since then, data collection about patients and providers has been inconsistent across the country. Health Canada will publicly report the data each year.

    Meet the people of Eel Ground First Nation who are using food to reclaim culture

    There are about 650 people who live on the Eel Ground First Nation, along the Miramichi River, and it's a safe bet that Freda Simon, 64, has served a meal to just about every one of them. Early in October, the people of Eel Ground gathered to celebrate the opening of the Natoaganeg Community Food Centre with song, speeches, and a feast. The centre, which is a split-entry home on the main drag, is a bright space where people can sit down for a hot meal twice a week, pick up produce and wild meat from the local food bank, learn to prepare traditional, healthy meals and volunteer.

    Audi's electric SUV faces four-week delay because of software bug

    FRANKFURT/SEOUL (Reuters) - Audi's first electric sport utility vehicle (SUV) will hit showrooms four weeks later than planned because of a software development issue, a spokesman for the German luxury car brand said on Sunday. The spokesman said Audi's e-tron midsize SUV faced delay because the carmaker needs new regulatory clearance for a piece of software that was modified during the development process. Audi staged a global launch of the e-tron in San Francisco last month as part of its effort to expand the market for premium electric vehicles and grab a share from California-based Tesla, which has had the niche largely to itself.

    UK Brexit minister Raab says open-minded on extending post-Brexit transition

    Britain is open-minded about extending the post-Brexit transition period if it means the European Union drops its proposals for the so-called Irish backstop, Brexit minister Dominic Raab said on Sunday. "If we need a bridge from the end of the implementation period to the future relationship ... I am open minded about using a short extension of the implementation period," Raab told BBC TV. "It is an obvious possible route as long as it is short, perhaps a few months, and secondly that we know how we get out of it and obviously it has to solve the backstop issue so that that falls away then as a possibility." Raab also said he thought a deal needed to be done by the end of November in order to get the legislation through the UK parliament in time.

    'It's kind of my first language': How 2 women are using art and film to heal

    Filmmaker Beth Wishart MacKenzie first met Lana Whiskeyjack at a former residential school in Alberta. "She showed me at that time this terracotta sculpture, because she uses art as her way to healing and wellness," Wishart MacKenzie said. Whiskeyjack's mixed-media sculpture Losing My Talk depicts a tortured face that represents her late uncle and the legacy of residential schools. It's at the heart of Wishart MacKenzie's latest film Lana Gets Her Talk, which is screening at Yellowknife's Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre as part of an installation — pikiskwe-speak — that's centred on Whiskeyjack's artwork.

    The EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier stood firm on the need for checks on goods shipped from mainland Britain to Northern Ireland after Brexit, while insisting this would not amount to a new border, in an interview published on Sunday. Negotiations on Britain's departure from the European Union are stalled on several issues, but primarily an Irish 'backstop' both sides agree is needed to avoid a hard border between the UK province of Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic, an EU state.

    'In our bloodline:' Land-based learning links curriculum with Indigenous culture

    A school day for six-year-old Hunter Sasakamoose can start with lighting a fire for breakfast and end with doing math by candlelight. In between, the boy learns life skills such as hunting and fishing as well as first-hand science lessons about how rain soaks into the ground to help grow the plants he's harvesting. Sasakamoose, an education professor at the University of Regina and research director with the Indigenous Wellness Research Institute, grew up with land-based learning on the M'Chigeeng First Nation in Ontario.
