OTTAWA — A new report calls on federal corrections to ease caseloads, improve workplace policies and give added resources to parole officers in order to mitigate current strains on their mental health. The report, led by public safety expert Rosemary Ricciardelli and released by a union, says that federal parole officers are experiencing extremely high levels of workplace stress and compromised mental health. These 1,600 parole officers across Canada feel overwhelmed by their caseloads, are expo
A new report into the 2020 sinking of the Sarah Anne off Newfoundland's south coast says the fishing vessel likely capsized suddenly, sending all four crew members into the water and causing their deaths. Clifford Harvey, the Transportation Safety Board of Canada's director of marine investigation, said the absence of life-saving equipment and distress signals support the conclusion that the vessel's capsizing took the crew by surprise. "Without critical pieces of life-saving equipment the crew
Prince Edward Islanders may be starting to think about leaving their vehicles in the driveway more often, but they won't be able to entirely avoid the impact of high prices for gas and diesel. Prices have been breaking records throughout the spring. Gas, at $2.108, is sitting at a record high. Diesel, at $2.424, is down from a record high at the end of April but still 90 per cent higher than it was a year ago. Mike Cassidy, owner of T3 Transit, said he is seeing signs that Islanders are making t
U.S. Rep. Ted Budd and former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Cheri Beasley won their respective Senate primaries on Tuesday, setting up a fall election matchup that should again test former President Donald Trump’s influence in North Carolina. (May 18)
Complaints to the city about rats indicate it could be another banner year for rodents in Ottawa. According to the city, 291 reports have been made about rats to Ottawa's 311 phone line in 2022 so far. While that figure is dwarfed by 2021's 1,197 service requests, 2022 has already surpassed 2018's 161 requests and 2017's 206 requests. In 2019, 510 service requests were made about rats; there were 842 requests for 2020. "I'm really unhappy about the situation. I don't feel comfortable letting my
A First Nations family's push to convince Manitoba to recognize the traditional name of their newborn daughter has landed in the provincial legislature. Parents Carson Robinson and Zaagaate Jock were on hand Wednesday to endorse an Opposition NDP bill that would formally recognize Indigenous names like the one granted to their daughter. They named their daughter, now three months old, Atetsenhtsén:we, which translates to "forever healing medicine" in Kanien'kéha, the Mohawk language. Except her
GENEVA (AP) — Britain and Rwanda on Thursday faced down two U.N. agencies that have sharply criticized their controversial plan in which British expects to send some asylum-seekers from the U.K. to the African country. In an interview with The Associated Press before meeting top officials from the U.N. human rights and refugee agencies, Rwandan Foreign Minister Vincent Biruta acknowledged it was “fine that they be concerned,” adding that the discussion was aimed “to bring them on board” to work
ISLAMABAD (AP) — Faced with rising violence, Pakistan is taking a tougher line to pressure Afghanistan’s Taliban rulers to crack down on militants hiding on their soil, but so far the Taliban remain reluctant to take action — trying instead to broker a peace. Last month came a sharp deterioration in relations between the two neighbors when Pakistan carried out airstrikes in eastern Afghanistan. Witnesses said the strikes hit a refugee camp and another location, killing at least 40 civilians. UNI

In a statement Wednesday, Spengemann says he is stepping down to once again serve with the United Nations. He says will start his new job on May 28 and will have more to say later about what he will be doing.

The City of Ottawa wants owners of vacant properties to pay $1,703 annually for a permit so bylaw officers can do proactive inspections aimed at preventing problems and "demolition by neglect." The proposed new bylaw was approved by the community and protective services committee Thursday. It comes less than two months after Ottawa city council approved a new tax on vacant residential properties set at one per cent of a property's assessed value. The new permit regime would take effect Nov. 1, 2
Five new water shuttle routes between Montreal and the South Shore are opening this summer under a new pilot project, the regional transit authority announced Wednesday. The Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain (ARTM) will also be bringing back the route linking Pointe-aux-Trembles to Montreal's Old Port for a fourth season. Since 2018 it had been in operation as a pilot project. It ran for only one week in its first year, but over the past three had been given the green light to take o
Weather balloons are essential to weather forecasting, but it takes a lot of coordination to send them up—and to track the data they capture. The Weather Network's Kyle Brittain attached some cameras to a weather balloon to get a better picture of how the process works, and the results were very dramatic.
Saskatchewan NDP Leader Ryan Meili says he is resigning as the member of the legislature for Saskatoon Meewasin. He says his last day will be July 1. Meili's resignation comes after he announced in February that he was stepping down as the Opposition party’s leader. He has said he would stay on until a new leader is chosen and the NDP leadership vote is scheduled for next month in Regina. The two candidates so far are Regina Lakeview MLA Carla Beck and Saskatoon lawyer Kaitlyn Harvey. Meili won
Toronto FC wingback Jahkeele Marshall-Rutty and midfielder Kosi Thompson highlight Canada's 60-man provisional roster ahead of next month’s CONCACAF Men’s Under-20 Championship. The provisional list features some other familiar names with a Borjan, Bunbury, De Rosario, Herdman and Bontis. The Canadian roster will be whittled down to 18 outfield players and two goalkeepers ahead of the 20-team tournament slated for June 18 to July 3 in Honduras. Canada has been drawn in Group E with the U.S., Cub
The Missouri Supreme Court denied a request by U.S. Senate candidate Mark McCloskey and his wife to give free legal advice to a conservative activist group as a condition of their professional probation, but McCloskey said Thursday he'll try to find another right-wing organization to represent. Mark and Patricia McCloskey of St. Louis were placed on probation as lawyers in February. The decision stemmed from their actions in June 2020 when they raised guns at racial injustice protesters who vent
