As promised, new public health orders have come into effect across the N.W.T. They make official the territory's anticipated voluntary vaccine passport system. If a non-essential N.W.T. business or organization decides to implement the program, then the territory's chief public health officer still gets a final say on how many people are allowed to gather there. The changes kicked in at 5 p.m. Friday, but some Yellowknife restaurants and pubs were ready for the change. Jean Paquette, the food an
What do you get when you combine the grim smile of Pennywise — the evil sewer-dwelling clown from It — with the madness of Beetlejuice, the mischievous, green-haired ghost in a black-and-white striped suit? One terrifying makeup mash-up — and exactly the kind of spooky look Winnipeg makeup artist Maddy Harms has set out to create every day this month. "My makeup just kind of started off as me doing eyeshadow and stuff in my bedroom," the 21-year-old told host Marcy Markusa in a Friday interview
Israel's deputy foreign minister said on Sunday that the Biden administration may shelve its plan to reopen a U.S diplomatic mission for Palestinians in Jerusalem after Israel voiced opposition to such a move. The Jerusalem consulate was subsumed into the U.S. Embassy that was moved to the contested city from Tel Aviv in 2018 by the administration of former President Donald Trump - a reversal of U.S. policy hailed by Israel and condemned by Palestinians.
OTTAWA — Public Safety Minister Bill Blair says the federal government has approved a request for pandemic aid in Saskatchewan, including military support. Blair issued a series of tweets saying the government approved the request in order to support Saskatchewan residents as the province faces a surge of COVID-19 cases. Blair also says the Canadian Forces will "provide communities the support they need to fight the pandemic." Blair's office earlier confirmed it had received and was reviewing a
LONDON (Reuters) -Italy's government and UniCredit are preparing to call off negotiations over the sale of ailing bank Monte dei Paschi (MPS) after efforts to reach an agreement over a costly recapitalisation plan failed, two sources told Reuters. The decision would complicate efforts by Prime Minister Mario Draghi's government to meet a mid-2022 deadline agreed with European Union authorities to re-privatise the bank Rome rescued in 2017. Rome will now have to gain clearance from Brussels to pump more money into Monte dei Paschi without a plan in hand to cut the state's 64% stake.

The Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) says it's sending reverse osmosis water purification units to Iqaluit at the request of the Nunavut government, after residents were ordered not to drink the water following evidence of fuel contamination in the city's treated water supply. Maj. Susan Magill, a public affairs officer with CAF's northern military unit — Joint Task Force North — told CBC News on Saturday one of the water purification units had arrived in the city that day, and another was expected o

As COVID-19 case numbers rise and more Saskatchewan children contract the illness, schools are scrambling to keep their students safe. At a recent physicians' town hall, doctors from the Saskatchewan Health Authority confirmed there were 17 children in the province hospitalized with COVID-19 — the highest number at any point in the pandemic so far — with the vast majority too young to be vaccinated. Many were under the age of five. Saskatchewan NDP education critic Carla Beck called the statisti

The province of P.E.I. and the Port of Summerside have found a new location to store the Island's road salt this winter. Earlier this year, the supplier in Nova Scotia warned about potential "operational issues" over the winter — meaning all 40,000 tonnes of salt needed to be delivered before the season started, rather than in regular shipments through the winter. Originally, the Port of Summerside planned to store it on Summerside's waterfront. The Port started to build an enclosure there for t
The only mark of "Baby's" time on Earth is a tombstone with a rabbit engraving, slowly being swallowed by the wilds of Nova Scotia over more than a century. Even that may have been lost had Steve Skafte not scoured the unruly fields of Plympton, Digby County, to find the Hardscratch burial ground guarded behind a rusty gate. He cut through the thicket of pine trees, swept aside the blanket of deadfall and brushed off the moss shrouding the rickety cairn. After clearing the area for future visito
FALLS CHURCH, Va. (AP) — The two women seeking the lieutenant governor's office in Virginia next month are fond of touting their unconventional political backgrounds. One thing is certain: Whichever one wins will be making history. Either candidate would be the first woman as well as the first woman of color to serve in a post that frequently serves as a launching pad to the governor’s mansion. Half of the past 10 lieutenant governors went on to become governor. The two will compete for votes on
THREE RIVERS, Calif. (AP) — In the wake of California wildfires, upwards of 10,000 trees weakened by fires, drought, disease or age must be removed, work that will keep a nearby highway closed to visitors who seek the world’s two largest sequoia trees. The hazard trees could potentially fall onto people and cars on the section of State Route 180 known as Generals Highway, or they could create barriers for emergency and fire response, the Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks said Friday. The h
A man has died from injuries he sustained earlier this week after being hit by a vehicle in the southeastern edge of the city, Edmonton police say.
