New Brunswick's health minister says she wants rules for listing and inspecting cooling towers by next spring following two outbreaks of legionnaires' disease in the Moncton region. Dorothy Shephard said it's uncertain if legislation will be introduced this fall, but "absolutely" wants to move ahead by the spring. "We want to get this done and we're not going to sit on this," Shephard said in an interview with CBC on Tuesday. "But, we're not going to rush it and not have something dealt with pro
BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraq is taking measures to close loopholes and conduct fair elections despite attempts to compromise the upcoming polls, the head of Iraq’s electoral commission said. Judge Jaleel Adnan Khalaf, chairman of the Iraqi Independent High Electoral Commission overseeing the election on Oct. 10, told The Associated Press in an interview this week that it has identified and thwarted attempts of voter fraud. “What we hear here and there is that citizens are selling their voter cards,” he s
U.S. stocks closed higher on Wednesday as rising crude prices boosted energy shares and a swath of positive U.S. data suggested inflation has crested and the economic recovery remains robust, boosting investor sentiment. All three major U.S. stock indexes gathered strength as the session progressed, with economically sensitive cyclicals, smallcaps and transportation stocks leading the charge. While value stocks initially held the advantage, the risk-on sentiment gained momentum through the afternoon, broadening to include growth stocks.

Kemptville’s first sanctioned powerlifting event was held on September 4. Hilda Siegel, powerlifting record holder and owner of Power Pole Performance, and Curd Hos of Iron Hos Gear organized the event. Sixteen lifters participated in the event.

As fall nesting season returns, home décor retailers are presenting collections that reflect the idea that home is where our hearts and heads are. Our long housebound stretch may have made us restless for the outside world, but it has helped us appreciate our homes more. Even if you didn’t redo a basement playroom, rehab a bathroom or create a workspace in an apartment closet, you probably rediscovered what you like about your home. “Our living spaces moved from sanctuary to command central,” sa
OTTAWA (Reuters) -Canada's annual inflation rate accelerated to an 18-year-high in August, driven by broad upward price pressures, data showed on Wednesday, just days before a hotly contested federal election that could see Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberals ousted. The rate rose to 4.1% in August, its fastest clip since March 2003, Statistics Canada said, beating analyst estimates and prompting Trudeau's main rival to pounce over the rising cost of living. "The numbers released today make it clear that under Justin Trudeau, Canadians are experiencing an affordability crisis," said Erin O'Toole, leader of the main opposition Conservatives, in a statement.
Alberta has some of the most predictable federal election outcomes in the country. While that may exclude it from driving the policy agenda, the province is at the intersection of the debate around climate and energy policy — and it will be heavily affected by what each party has proposed on that topic. The Conservative platform holds the most specifics for the West, like fiscal transfer changes and funding Calgary's Green Line LRT, while the Liberal and New Democrat plans speak more broadly to
Most Northwest Territories residents need only look down the street to be reminded of one of the territory's biggest crises: the lack of suitable, safe housing. Multiple families crowd into some homes in small N.W.T. communities where there simply aren't enough buildings. Elsewhere, people live in dilapidated houses long overdue for repair or pay some of the priciest rental costs in Canada. There is universal agreement among federal election contenders that fixing N.W.T. housing is an urgent pri
The Arva Flour Mill has been sold to a London businessman who vows to continue operating the business, as well as expanding to make gluten-free flour, and possibly add a distillery or winery. "Every time I've been on the property, it brings me joy," said the new owner, Mark Rinker, who takes over the mill from Mike Matthews, whose family has operated the business for four generations, since 1919. "It's a very special place for me," Rinker told CBC News, adding that his father's family had strong

Here’s a local look at housing, and what the federal candidates and parties are promising.

The Conservative Party of Canada, the Liberal Party of Canada, the New Democratic Party of Canada and the People's Party of Canada are the only federal parties that have nominated full slates of candidates in central and northern Alberta. The Maverick Party, with 10 candidates running in this half of the province, has two more candidates running than the Green Party of Canada.

JIADONG, Taiwan (AP) — The F-16 screeched across the sky Wednesday before landing on a highway cut through pineapple fields in southwestern Taiwan to refuel quickly and take off again. The Taiwanese military exercise envisioned a Chinese attack taking out the island's main airfields, necessitating the use of rural roads as runways to carry on the fight. War is not imminent, but as China has grown increasingly assertive in both the East China and South China Seas, Taiwan is stepping up its defens
LUCKNOW, India (AP) — Infections following monsoon rains have led to a fever outbreak in India’s northern Uttar Pradesh state, killing at least 114 people in the past three weeks, health officials said Wednesday. The state’s Health Minister Jai Pratap Singh told The Associated Press that most cases were caused by dengue, a seasonal viral infection spread by mosquitoes, followed by leptospirosis, scrub typhus, and malaria. Leptospirosis and scrub typhus are bacterial infections, while malaria is

Once more, defining Tiny’s beaches has become a point of interest to residents. Two recent deputations to Tiny council from cottagers have spurred the township to look into public beach access at the end of Sawlog Bay Point, after first requesting staff define where the beach starts and ends.

It started with a dodgy plate of chicken wings. It ended with Jeremy Arnot's job. The B.C. man was fired last year for failing to follow his employer's COVID-19 protocols during a bout of diarrhea; he's now seen his employment reinstated by a labour arbitrator who says companies must provide workers with clear policies and training related to the coronavirus. "An employee's report of diarrhea during this pandemic is not a sufficient justification for demanding a COVID test. The employer must est
