LEEDS, England (AP) — Leeds climbed out of the Premier League's relegation zone in dramatic style Sunday after Pascal Struijk's stoppage-time equalizer secured a 1-1 draw against Brighton. Struijk, an 83rd-minute substitute, headed home at the far post in the second minute of added-on time to lift Leeds a point clear of Burnley after Danny Welbeck had given Albion a halftime lead at Elland Road. Following Burnley’s 1-0 loss at Tottenham earlier Sunday, Struijk’s last-gasp goal ensured Leeds’ bid
Barely two hours from Toronto, just across the U.S. border, community members in Buffalo, N.Y., are mourning those killed in a mass shooting. The tragedy, which is being investigated as a federal hate crime and a case of racially motivated violent extremism, is impacting communities in Ontario as well. Kayla McLean has more.
WATFORD, England (AP) — Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes each scored twice as Roy Hodgson’s final home match in charge of already-relegated Watford ended in an embarrassing 5-1 Premier League loss to Leicester on Sunday. Joao Pedro’s deflected effort gave the Hornets an early lead in front of incoming head coach Rob Edwards. But familiar defensive issues contributed to the hosts’ downfall as James Maddison’s leveler and doubles from Vardy and Barnes condemned them to a 26th Premier League loss of a
HALIFAX — A workplace death investigation is underway following a fatality last week at a Michelin tire plant in Nova Scotia. The provincial Department of Labour issued a brief statement Sunday saying a worker died Wednesday at Michelin’s plant in Waterville, N.S. The statement said a stop work order issued for the equipment involved in the incident is still in place. “As this is an active investigation, we cannot confirm details regarding the incident,” the department said.

PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Senate on Monday opened an ethics investigation into a firebrand Republican member who tweeted inflammatory comments about last weekend's racist attack at a Buffalo, New York, supermarket that left 10 people dead. The referral of Sen. Wendy Rogers of Flagstaff to the Ethics Committee was in lieu of the immediate expulsion that Democratic lawmakers were planning, GOP Majority Leader Rick Gray said. Due process considerations require no less than an ethics investigation,
The short chapter of a Calgary site in the tragic history of Canada's residential school system will not be forgotten if the City of Calgary and Treaty 7 nations can agree on how to do that. St. Dunstan's industrial school was operated by the Anglican Church from 1892 to 1907 on land that is now in southeast Calgary. Located between Deerfoot Trail and the Bow River, a short distance south of the Calf Robe Bridge, the city has owned the land for several decades. The city is interested in working

A Maud Lewis painting once traded for a grilled cheese sandwich 50 years ago in London, Ont., has sold for $350,000 at auction. It marks the first time a painting by the artist has exceeded a sale of $100,000. The previous record price for her work was set in November 2021 when Train Station In Winter fetched $67,250. "We didn't really realize the treasure that she was to Canadians," said Irene Demas, former owner of the painting Black Truck. "This will put her out into the world. Everybody will
When Rebekah Patenaude was in high school, she went to prom with a male date. Not because she wanted to — she would have preferred no date at all — but because it was important to her friend. "It was really awkward," recalls Patenaude, 24, who started identifying as queer when she was 21. "I didn't understand why, but now it's clear to me… Like every other high school student, you try to fit in. But now I'm like, I don't want to fit in. Fitting in is boring. I want to be myself." Patenaude is on

Will Towell is at an impasse: either live in a homeless shelter with cockroaches he hates or move back to a tent in the bush and deal with a bunch of other critters. What the 64-year-old Kingston, Ont., resident really needs is a wheelchair-accessible unit in social housing. But it could be years before a spot opens up and market rent for a decent apartment is far beyond what his monthly disability support cheque provides. While the thought of living outdoors tempts him, Towell decides to tough
The Galapagos Islands are a world of wonder and beauty beyond description. Three strong ocean currents converge here, bringing an abundance of food and microorganisms from the deep parts of the ocean. This attracts baitfish, which attract larger fish, creating an ideal habitat for top predators such as hammerhead sharks and Galapagos sharks. This abundance of animal life attracts something else; scuba divers. Animal lovers and nature enthusiasts venture to one of the most remote parts of the planet to see sharks, turtles, fish, and other large sea animals in their natural environment. Hammerheads fill the water here, creating great walls of thousands of individuals. It's thrilling and awe inspiring to see them in such numbers as they drift past on the current, unconcerned by a human in their ocean. The Galapagos sharks live here in great numbers as well. They are the top predators here, unless orcas happen to be passing through. This lucky scuba diver was perched on some rocks watching a show that would rival any Imax theatre production when a massive Galapagos shark cruised past him as if conducting a curious inspection. The shark eyed him from little more than arm's length away as it decided if he represented an opportunity for a meal. As the shark passed by, the scuba diver saw a fishing line trailing behind. The shark had an embedded hook in its mouth with roughly 7m (20 feet) of thick fishing line. These hooks might eventually rust and fall out, but the embedded barb will remain. It often causes an abscess and discomfort for a long period of time before it heals. In some cases, the shark's ability to hunt may be affected and they will not thrive as they should. Long line fishing continues to be a threat to many animals that are not considered target catch. Sharks, rays, turtles, and other endangered animals are often caught as by catch. The fish die on these lines before they are retrieved and there is no release for those animals that are not a food source for the fishermen. In other cases where lines are pulled in before the fish die, sharks like this one cannot be unhooked and released. The fishermen are forced to cut the line and let the fish go with an embedded hook. Scuba divers find sights like this one to be heart breaking. They understand the vital role that the sharks play in the health of the reef and the oceans and it's difficult to see our effect on the animals who call the ocean their home. Despite our misunderstanding of these sharks, and the fear that surrounds them, sharks are almost never a threat to people. Without them, our survival could also be in jeopardy.

Moncton is undertaking a study of what it could take to switch its public transit fleet to electric power. City councillors voted unanimously Monday in favour of awarding a sole-source contract to the not-for-profit Canadian Urban Transit Research and Innovation Consortium. The study, expected to take 30 weeks, will begin this year. Angela Allain, Moncton's director of public transit, said it will examine everything from the existing transit garage and diesel fleet to whether supplementary charg
Windsor is not yet out of the running for a new, $2.5 billion LG Chem plant, the company said. The plant would supply cathodes and other materials to the EV battery plant being constructed in Windsor by LG and Stellantis. Invest Windsor-Essex CEO Stephen MacKenzie recently said on May 10 that LG Chem wouldn't be constructing the plant in Windsor over concerns with the available energy supply. However, on Monday, an LG Chem spokesperson told CBC Windsor via email that a final decision on the plan
CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — A former Australian envoy to the Solomons Islands has accused Australia’s government of losing the trust of South Pacific island countries and of ushering in greater Chinese influence. Retired career diplomat Trevor Sofield told a security summit on Monday he found it ”inconceivable” that the Solomons government did not trust Australia enough to consult when a bilateral security pact with Beijing was first considered. “That would not have happened a few years ago,” sai
