OTTAWA — Pierce Schoel thought he might be able to avoid a long wait at the passport office in Kitchener, Ont. by going in the middle of the day. He was surprised to discover line-ups out the door. The security guard told people they'd likely be waiting two, even three hours. But with a long-awaited trip to Mexico on the horizon -- his first overseas trip since the pandemic began -- he stuck it out. "I've been waiting to travel for quite a long time," Shoel said after applying for his passport F

Two residents, including a person in their 50s, and one employee at the Villa Renaissance nursing home in Dalhousie have died of COVID-19, according to Michael Keating, interim executive director of the New Brunswick Association of Nursing Homes. Seven employees and seven patients at the nursing home have tested positive for the virus since Wednesday.

As the province rolls out its new COVID-19 proof-of-vaccination QR code, some businesses are citing concerns over how they will police the measures and say there hasn't been enough support from the government. Brittany Rosen has more.
The chill in the air has some residents in a southeast Edmonton neighbourhood looking ahead to their winter transit options — and they are concerned. Residents in The Hills at Charlesworth, a new community in the rapidly growing area of Ellerslie Road between 34th and 50th Streets, are asking the city to improve transit service to the neighbourhood. Currently, there is no transit stop there. Residents have to walk about two kilometres to the nearest stop on 50th Street. "When I came here a few m
WATFORD, England (AP) — With a deft touch, a roll of the ball with his studs, a dummy and then a sublime finish into the bottom corner, Mohamed Salah produced another goal-of-the-season contender to headline Liverpool’s 5-0 win at Watford in the Premier League on Saturday. On a tough day for Claudio Ranieri in his first match as Watford manager, Salah delivered almost a replica of his stunning individual goal against Manchester City before the international break — and overshadowed a hat trick s
Premier Doug Ford's party is staking much of its re-election hopes on winning the votes of drivers in the Greater Toronto Area with a promise to forge ahead with the controversial Highway 413. The proposed new highway would cost at least $6 billion and would cut a 59-kilometre arc across the northwestern part of the GTA, linking the northern edge of Vaughan to where Mississauga, Brampton and Milton converge, at the interchange of highways 401 and 407. Top strategists with Ford's Progressive Cons

The Calgary Police Service said Conner Dery, 25, has been charged with aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon in relation to an assault at Fourth Street LRT Station.

As border regulations and travel rules for vaccinated Canadians travelling to the United States begin to ease, some wonder whether the dragged-out process is a signal that relations between the two countries are not altogether rosy. From quarrels over pipelines to concerns around cross-border trade, Mike Le Couteur looks at whether Canada is still on best terms with its closest neighbour.
As New Brunswick grapples with lawsuit by First Nation communities, the province is now ordering thousands of employees not to use the words 'unceded' or 'unsurrendered', when making public acknowledgements to Indigenous lands. As Ross Lord reports, the province says it's posturing for legal purposes - but Indigenous leaders say it's a sign of disrespect.

DUBAI (Reuters) -An Iranian appeals court has upheld a one-year prison term for British-Iranian aid worker Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe on security offences, her lawyer was quoted by an Iranian news website as saying on Saturday. "The appeals court has approved the lower court's verdict without holding a hearing," attorney Hojjat Kermani told the Emtedad website. In April, an Iranian court sentenced Zaghari-Ratcliffe to a new term in jail on charges of propaganda against Iran's ruling system, just a month after she finished a prior five-year sentence.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas Republicans on Saturday night closed in on redrawn U.S. House maps that would shore up their eroding dominance as voters peel away from the GOP in the state’s booming suburbs. In a key late-night vote in the Texas House, Republicans gave early sign-off to new congressional boundaries that would give them more breathing room after some close calls in 2018 and 2020, while also opening a new path for the GOP along the border with Mexico. But in a preview of legal challeng
WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Jill Biden on Sunday returned to the South Carolina Baptist church where she says she began to repair her relationship with God following her son's death from brain cancer six years ago. The first lady quietly flew to West Columbia for a surprise appearance at the 50th anniversary celebration for Pastor Charles B. Jackson Sr. of Brookland Baptist Church. But she ended up giving one of the most extensive explanations yet of how her faith wavered after Beau Biden's death
A senior military commander in Western Canada says he doesn't expect much opposition from Canadian Forces personnel over mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations. Ottawa is requiring federal employees, including members of the military, be fully vaccinated by the end of this month. The government also expects employers in federally regulated industries, including banks and airlines, to do the same. Brig.-Gen. Bill Fletcher, who's responsible for Western Canada's 3rd Canadian Division, oversees the traini
Advocates say Ontario's enhanced COVID-19 vaccine certificate system is not accessible for marginalized groups. The new system, announced on Friday, assumes people have smartphones, computers, printers, internet access, a data plan and the ability to navigate the provincial website, the advocates told CBC News on Saturday. According to representatives of three organizations, the Ontario government failed to consider the needs of people with disabilities, including those who are cognitively impai
