And in Houston, clinics that typically perform more than 100 abortions in a week are are down to a few a day. Two weeks after the nation's strictest abortion law took effect in Texas, new court filings show the deepening impact a near-total ban on abortion is already having, as the Biden administration late Tuesday asked a federal court in Austin for an emerg

Témiscaming’s mayor Yves Ouellet explained the new vaccine passport program—mandatory throughout Quebec— “is going very well.” “It’s very simple, and works very well,” he said, referring to the process of scanning a resident’s passport code. Vaccine passports were introduced in Quebec on September 1. A two-week grace period was given from the first until September 14 when the passport will be in use, but no penalties will be imposed for violations. The province adopted the passports in part to “

Tammy Faye Bakker wore a lot of makeup. It was armor — a way for a person who didn’t consider herself beautiful to simply exist in the world. So it's a particularly a cruel irony that the mascara was also the thing that made her a target and a joke long before she and her ex-husband were brought down by brazen theft and misuse of ministry funds. Women have never been afforded the luxury of simply existing in the world, especially when they dare to live in public as Tammy did. Who cares what she

It's the one time of year where all local politicians in B.C. gather together — but for the second year in a row, it's happening virtually. The annual Union of B.C. Municipalities (UBCM) convention is taking place this week, allowing mayors and councillors to lobby the provincial government and trade best practices on local government. Like last year, it takes place with an election campaign underway — federal this year, instead of provincial — and continued uncertainty during a pandemic, but or

Sitting MPs already have to take anti-harassment training every three years. Last week, the House o
