Gas stoves are contributing more to global warming than previously thought because of constant tiny methane leaks while they’re off, a new study found. The same study that tested emissions around stoves in homes raised new concerns about indoor air quality and health because of levels of nitrogen oxides measured. Even when they are not running, U.S. gas stoves are putting 2.6 million tons (2.4 million metric tons) of methane — in carbon dioxide equivalent units — into the air each year, a team o

VANCOUVER — A court injunction against old-growth logging protests on Vancouver Island has been extended until next fall in a British Columbia Court of Appeal decision that overturns a lower-court ruling. In a unanimous decision Wednesday, a panel of three judges granted the appeal by forestry company Teal Cedar Products Ltd. of a B.C. Supreme Court decision that denied the company's application to extend the injunction by one year. More than 1,100 people have been arrested while protesting old-
Advocates are renewing calls for new forms of emergency housing as the number of people turning up at a homeless shelter in the Cape Breton Regional Municipality rises.

It's all in an effort to ensure the services and programs at the centre are as welcoming and barrier-free as possible, said Dr. David Martell. "Often people have had the experience where they try to access a lot of different things in health care and what they're met with i
Canada's main stock index ended higher on Wednesday but gave back almost all of its earlier gain as investors weighed hawkish signals from the Bank of Canada and the U.S. Federal Reserve. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index edged up 4.91 points, or 0.02%, to 20,595.89 but that closing level was 1.6% below its intraday high. "The story of the day has been the huge intraday swings around the Bank of Canada and, more importantly for the U.S. markets, around the Fed," said Colin Cieszynski, chief market strategist at SIA Wealth Management.

The Liverpool star didn’t finish the match and later was taken to the hospital, though he said on social media that he was OK. Moro

Canada's top doctor says even though the average daily COVID-19 case count across the country is down 30 per cent compared to last week, it's not an accurate reflection of the state of the pandemic. Dr. Theresa Tam says targeted testing policies and reduced testing continue to underestimate the number of true infections, noting severe illness trends are still rising in most jurisdictions and hospitalization rates are increasing across all age groups. Quebec announced it will begin tracking COVID
