Saskatoon police would like the public's help in tracking down 15 people who attended an indoor rally on election night. The People's Party of Canada held their election viewing party at the Saskatoon Inn on Sept. 20, an event attended by party leader Maxime Bernier. Many at the gathering were not wearing masks, despite a provincial public health order requiring that indoors. Police have already charged one person under the Public Health Act and written up tickets for three others. Now they've p
The man went on the run after he allegedly killed a taxi driver, in a case that gripped the city.
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
Four months into one of its worst COVID-19 outbreaks, Israel is seeing a sharp drop in new infections and severe illness, aided by its use of vaccine boosters, vaccine passports and mask mandates, scientists and health officials said. Israel was struck by its fourth coronavirus wave in June, fuelled by the fast-spreading Delta variant. Rather than imposing new lockdown measures, the government bet on a third booster dose of the Pfizer Inc/BioNTech vaccine for people age 12 and up, mandated face coverings and enforced use of a “Green Pass” - proof of vaccination, recovery from the illness or a negative test for the virus - at restaurants and other venues, even for children.
It's been more than two weeks since wildfires forced hundreds of people from the Shoal Lake and Red Earth Cree Nations to evacuate their homes north of Hudson Bay, Sask. — and still, no official return date has been set. "They're very lonely," said Shoal Lake Chief Marcel Head in a virtual news conference Friday afternoon. "They want to return home, but we've been telling them that we wouldn't want to put a risk on their health." Environment Canada lifted all air quality advisories in the area F

Officials with the Nunavut capital say they suspect fuel got into the tank from outside the plant, but a treated reservoir downstream had fuel levels within limits. Long-term health effects are not a concern.
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Esperita García de Perez got her first vaccination against COVID-19 in May. That, along with her Catholic faith, made her feel better protected against the virus, and she had hoped to get her second shot of the Russian-developed Sputnik V vaccine a few weeks later. But the 88-year-old is still waiting. She was infected with the virus last month, and now her hopes for survival are pinned on the host of medications and home care she is receiving. Millions in developing na
AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — As a poorly paid public school teacher, Khaled Jaber always needed a side hustle, working as a private tutor and using his car as a taxi to help pay the bills. For unexpected needs, such as medical expenses, he has had to borrow money from relatives. Somehow, the 44-year-old muddled through life, sustained by his love of teaching high school Arabic and the respect his job earned him in the community. But his fragile equilibrium has been upended by the government’s harsh trea
WASHINGTON (AP) — Air Force Gen. Jacqueline Van Ovost on Friday became only the second woman to lead one of the Pentagon's 11 so-called combatant commands, the multi-service organizations that spearhead U.S. military operations around the world. At a change-of-command ceremony at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin applauded Van Ovost's historic rise, calling her a “legend of a leader,” a pilot by training and a pivotal player in the airlift of tens of thousands of e
MONTREAL — Quebec continued the expansion of its vaccine passport system Friday, with proof of vaccination now required to visit numerous health network facilities. People aged 13 and older will need a vaccine passport to visit such places as hospitals, long-term care homes, clinics, rehabilitation centres and seniors residences. The health order applies to caregivers, companions and visitors, but proof of vaccination won't be required to receive services or care. Other exceptions include people
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
