TORONTO — The Ontario government is refusing to publicly divulge its progress in enrolling children in core autism therapies, after the last update showed it was far off its own target. Merrilee Fullerton, the minister of children, community and social services, has said the government would get 8,000 kids into core clinical services by the end of the fall, but as of last month that number was only about 888. Government officials said at that time that movement was initially slow due to getting

After a tornado ripped through Bruce Pit off-leash dog park in 2018 the woodland is lush with new growth, and it provides a good example of what derecho-ravaged forests on other National Capital Commission (NCC) land will likely look like in a few years. But not all of the work done in Bruce Pit these last four years, or in NCC-owned Pine Grove and Pinhey Forest after the derecho in May, are ecological best practices, according to an urban forestry expert with the University of British Columbia.

Ottawa police say they are reviewing exactly what happened when a social media post about the murders of women this year was edited to remove the word "femicide."

"In each case, men are facing charges." Then minutes later, the post was once again published on the force's social media feeds, but this time, the word "femici

On Monday, in what seems like a scene out of a science fiction movie, NASA will slam a spacecraft into a distant asteroid to see whether it can nudge its orbit — all in an effort to test a way to protect Earth from any potential future threats.

However, space agencies l
