WASHINGTON (Reuters) -U.S. Supreme Court justices on Monday appeared poised to make it tougher to prosecute political corruption cases as they signaled sympathy toward appeals by an ex-aide to Democratic former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and a businessman of bribery and fraud convictions. The justices heard arguments in appeals by Cuomo's former executive deputy secretary Joseph Percoco and onetime construction company executive Louis Ciminelli, who were charged in a corruption crackdown by federal prosecutors in Manhattan centered on the halls of the state capital of Albany.
TORONTO — Excitement and jubilation after Canada scored its first-ever goal at the Men's World Cup gave way to dismay after Croatia came back with a string of goals to end the team's hopes of reaching the tournament's knockout round. Fans initially screamed, jumped out of their seats and embraced each other at a sold-out watch party in downtown Toronto Sunday as Alphonso Davies scored the historic goal. The star winger and Bayern Munich player headed the ball home to give Canada an initial 1-0 l
About 600 trees and shrubs are being planted in Pinhey Forest this fall after the derecho windstorm six months ago felled great swaths of trees in the area. While a detailed analysis hasn't yet materialized, the National Capital Commission (NCC) estimated earlier this year that the May 21 severe weather event destroyed about 70 per cent of the upper tree canopy in both Pinhey Forest and Pine Grove to the east. Hydro One provided funding to the NCC for the tree planting project. It came after tre
AL RAYYAN, Qatar — Alphonso Davies scored against Croatia on Sunday to give Canada its first-ever goal at the men's World Cup. The goal came 67 seconds into the game. Canada's goalkeeper Milan Borjan set up the play with a long goal kick that found Cyle Larin down field. Larin headed the ball to Tajon Buchanan on the right flank. A cross from Buchanan then found Davies flying through the air and the Bayern Munich star headed the ball past Croatian keeper Dominik Livaković to give Canada a 1-0 le
NEW YORK (AP) — “Gaslighting” — behavior that's mind manipulating, grossly misleading, downright deceitful — is Merriam-Webster's word of the year. Lookups for the word on merriam-webster.com increased 1,740% in 2022 over the year before. But something else happened. There wasn't a single event that drove significant spikes in curiosity, as it usually goes with the chosen word of the year. The gaslighting was pervasive. “It’s a word that has risen so quickly in the English language, and especial
A small business owner in Corner Brook is warming hearts and hands with her winter clothing drive. Michelle Payne of Fox's General Store has set up a donation rack in her shop where anyone can come in and get a winter coat or a pair of mittens for free. The community support has been heartwarming, said Payne — but it's also sad. "It's great on my side to see that it's helping people and that it's doing well for what I intended it to do," Payne said. "It's also really sad to know that so many in

A former Hydro-Québec employee charged with spying for China was released on bail Monday. Yuesheng Wang, 35, was arrested by the RCMP on Nov. 14 and has been in custody since. Federal prosecutors had opposed his release, saying they considered Wang a flight risk. Wang had argued he was committed to staying in Quebec to clear his name and restore his reputation. The judge said he was satisfied with the $200,000 in financial guarantees put forward by the accused. Wang will also have to turn in his
Emer O'Toole says it was a nightmare to get care for her one-year-old asthmatic son when he got pneumonia last week. With pharmacy drug shortages and endless waits in two different emergency rooms, she feared for his life. O'Toole first noticed signs of respiratory distress in her toddler last Sunday, but it wasn't until Wednesday that she was able to get her hands on medication. "That's the point at which it gets dangerous," she said. "You hear wheezing and if there's an infection you often hea

KYIV/KHERSON, Ukraine (Reuters) -President Volodymyr Zelenskiy warned Ukrainians to expect another brutal week of cold and darkness ahead, predicting more Russian attacks on infrastructure which would not stop until Moscow runs out of missiles. Russia has been launching massive missile bombardments on Ukraine's energy infrastructure roughly weekly since early October, with each attack having greater impact than the last as damage accumulates and winter sets in. In an overnight address, Zelenskiy said he expected new attacks this week that could be as bad as last week's, the worst yet, which left millions of people with no heat, water or power.

OTTAWA — The Liberal government unveiled its long-awaited Indo-Pacific strategy on Sunday, announcing more military spending and closer ties with countries such as India. The strategy earmarks $2.3 billion for Canada to form closer ties with countries that span Pakistan to Japan, including some funding that the Liberals have announced in recent weeks. “What you’re seeing today is a reorientation of our foreign policy (that) we haven’t seen in a long time,” Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly t
