Kayla Gallie, 21, is among hundreds of people in the Moncton area who are homeless and spending their nights trying to stay warm and survive in a tent. Plans are underway to open a new emergency shelter at the Moncton Lions Community Centre on St. George Street that will include 125 beds. In the meantime, however, the existing shelters are full and many people remain outdoors. "At this point I don't have any other options, it's sleep outside or sleep outside," Gallie said.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Railroad unions on Tuesday decried President Joe Biden's call for Congress to intervene in their contract dispute, saying it undercuts their efforts to address workers' quality of life concerns, but businesses stressed that it is crucial to avoid a strike next week that would devastate the economy. Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that lawmakers will be asked to vote this week to impose the terms of the deals the 12 unions agreed to before an original strike deadline
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says his government will wait to see how the new Alberta legislation “plays out” before deciding whether it needs to respond to it. Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc says the law hasn’t yet been debated and passed which alone means there is no legal recourse for anyone to challenge it yet.
One way or another, Whitehorse will need a source of gravel — and soon, says the Yukon Contractors Association. "While I respect the numerous voices in the room that would profess to not be excited about the development of the quarry, the reality is that the city of Whitehorse in the broadest sense is running out of gravel," said the group's president Murray Arsenault at a public hearing on Monday evening. The city council hearing was focused on the latest draft of the city's official community
Premier Danielle Smith says the government's proposed sovereignty act would not give the provincial cabinet unchecked powers to rewrite laws, while critics say the premier's signature bill would do just that. "It gives unprecedented ability to a brand new premier to overwhelm and sidestep the legislative assembly of this province and it is an attack on the democratic rights of Albertans, and through that, an attack on the stability of our economy," NDP Leader Rachel Notley said on her way into t
Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko warned that the temperature in homes could drop rapidly in the event of "a blackout and the destruction of infrastructure and a total absence of electricity, water supply, drainage and heat supply".

The City of Fredericton has confirmed earlier hints of where the province plans to build a new jail. Councillors voted 6-4 on Monday to sell the provincial government about 25 acres of land in the Vanier Industrial Park for $1,075,000 in order to build a correctional centre. The site is made up of two adjoining parcels of land at the southern ends of Blizzard and Dorcas streets. The land would be used for the construction of the $32-million jail designed based on the Dalhousie Regional Correctio
An experimental Alzheimer’s drug modestly slowed the brain disease’s inevitable worsening — but the anxiously awaited new data leaves unclear how much difference that might make in people’s lives. Japanese drugmaker Eisai and its U.S. partner Biogen had announced earlier this fall that the drug lecanemab appeared to work, a badly needed bright spot after repeated disappointments in the quest for better treatments of the incurable disease. Late Tuesday, the companies provided full results of the
EDMONTON — Alberta Premier Danielle Smith is rejecting accusations that a bill granting her and her cabinet sweeping powers to rewrite laws while bypassing the legislature is an undemocratic, dangerous power grab. “All Albertans expect their elected officials to stand up for Alberta, no question,” Opposition NDP Leader Rachel Notley told Smith during question period Wednesday. “But yesterday we learned the premier’s approach on sovereignty is not that, but rather a full-throated power grab from
The leader of the Parti Québécois (PQ) is asking the new Speaker of the National Assembly to let his members in at the start of the legislative session even if they haven't sworn an oath to King Charles III. "There is no reason to block the way," said Paul St-Pierre Plamondon, during a news conference Tuesday. After the general election in October, the three PQ members refused to swear the oath. Québec Solidaire (QS) members refused at first as well, but most have been sworn in since. St-Pierre

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Spain’s interior minister on Wednesday flatly rejected new media allegations of possible deaths on Spanish soil during a June storming by migrants of the border fence separating its north African enclave of Melilla from Morocco when at least 23 people died. “We did not have to lament any loss of human life in our national territory. The tragic events occurred outside our country,” minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska told Spain’s Parliament in Madrid. “The insinuation that I

TORONTO — When Nancy Morsi arrived in Oakville, Ont., last year after finishing her medical degree in Ireland she was planning to practice medicine. Instead, she's been working as a medical assistant since September. Morsi is one of many immigrant doctors who find themselves working in jobs that are below their qualifications due to a set of challenges that make it difficult to get their credentials recognized. That includes a long and expensive licensing process and limited residency spots, esp
A kidney patient from Whitehorse who's been in Vancouver for treatment since the summer says the lack of in-centre dialysis in the Yukon is "baffling." Nellie Njootli has been living with kidney problems her whole life. She had her first kidney transplant 20 years ago, when she was nine. Last summer, that kidney failed, and she was sent to Vancouver for treatment. Since then, Njootli requires three hemodialysis treatments a week. She's spent the past six months in Vancouver because there's no in
LONDON (AP) — Google is challenging a record European Union antitrust fine that took aim at the Android operating system's role in restricting mobile competition and consumer choice. The company said Thursday that it filed the appeal against the 4.125 billion euro ($4.3 billion) penalty “because there are areas that require legal clarification from the European Court of Justice,” the EU’s top court. Google previously appealed to a lower tribunal, which had slightly lowered the original 4.34 bill
