Vote counting continues today in six ridings across the country with narrow margins between the leading candidates — in some cases as narrow as 100 votes or less. Elections Canada says it will be a few days before the country can get a complete picture of the 2021 federal election's voter turnout and final results. The agency says it needs a few more days to complete the results because it's still counting local special ballots — mostly mail-in ballots from voters in their home ridings. A spokes
Nursing home workers at Seaview Manor in Glace Bay, N.S., mounted an information picket Wednesday to raise awareness about a provincewide shortage of continuing care assistants and licensed practical nurses. Tammy Martin of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, which represents about 125 staff at the 113-bed facility, said the labour shortage means workers are putting in overtime and giving up vacations. "They're desperate for help," Martin said. "They've been working short for a long, long ti
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Wednesday authorized a booster dose of the Pfizer Inc and BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for those 65 and older, all people at high risk of severe disease, and others who are regularly exposed to the virus. The decision paves the way for a quick rollout of the booster shots as soon as this week for millions of people who had their second dose of the vaccine at least six months ago. The change to the vaccine's emergency use authorization will allow boosters for groups such as health-care workers, teachers and day care staff, grocery workers and those in homeless shelters or prisons, FDA acting Commissioner Janet Woodcock said in a statement.

SAN SEBASTIAN, Spain (AP) — Taking center stage in a prestigious Spanish film festival to receive a top career award, actor Johnny Depp presented himself as a victim of the "cancel culture" that, he said, has spread across the cinema industry.

LONDON (AP) — Intensifying its opposition to FIFA's push for biennial World Cups, UEFA complained Wednesday that Gianni Infantino's world body has yet to respond to its request for talks to discuss the concerns of European nations. Infantino has been deploying retired players and former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger in a campaign to win support for the overhaul of world football, which UEFA said is a sign of “promotional campaigns of unilaterally pre-determined concepts” rather than an open cons
After 20 years working in the Emergency Medical Services field, Mike Dansereau still keeps his skills sharp. Dansereau was one of several paramedics honoured with a Governor General Exemplary Service Medal (20 years) on Sept. 15.

TORONTO — Ontario's New Democrats are apologizing for a social media advertisement that mistook one Progressive Conservative legislator for another. The ad that ran in April said Premier Doug Ford and Tory legislator Kaleed Rasheed had paid sick days at a time when many workers in the province did not. The ad used a photo of Progressive Conservative representative Sheref Sabawy instead of Rasheed. The premier's office called Wednesday for the opposition party to apologize for the "racially insen
