NORWICH, England (AP) — Tottenham clinched Champions League qualification with a 5-0 win over relegated Norwich in the last round of the Premier League on Sunday. Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski both scored twice and Harry Kane got the other goal as Spurs finished fourth, two points ahead of Arsenal, which defeated visiting Everton 5-1. Coach Antonio Conte’s team really only needed a point to be sure of finishing ahead of its crosstown rival on account of Spurs’ superior goal difference, but
Members of the local Ukrainian community are fixing up a western Quebec summer camp that fell into disrepair over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, just in time to welcome dozens of children fleeing the war. Around 50 volunteers were on hand at the Outaouais camp Saturday, tidying up the site ahead of the children's camp planned for July. Theodore Kozak helps run the site, which is owned by the Ukrainian Catholic Church, and has been coming to the area since he was a kid. He hopes to give bot
A Nova Scotia First Nation has launched a moderate livelihood lobster fishery in Cape Breton with approval from the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans. The department issued a statement Friday saying it came to an understanding with the We’koqma’q First Nation that authorizes fishers in the community to harvest and sell their catch in accordance with the Netukulimk Livelihood Fisheries Plan. The understanding is linked to the 1999 Supreme Court of Canada decision that affirmed the treaty

Ontario reported at least 809 people in hospital with COVID-19 on Sunday, down by more than 300 from Saturday and down by 215 from a week earlier. However, more than 10 per cent of hospitals did not submit their data, as happens occasionally on the weekend, so the number is anticipated to be higher. Of those in hospital, 152 required intensive care — a decrease of eight from the previous day's total — and 72 patients needed the help of a ventilator to breathe. The province reported at least 1,05

Running his first Blue Nose, Nathan Ryan O'Hehir won the marathon handily, finishing in a time of two hours, 42 minutes and 47 seconds. "That was the hardest race I've ever done," Ryan O'Hehir said

The City of Edmonton is considering turning a chunk of 102 Avenue in downtown Edmonton into a pedestrian-focused corridor. The possibility of banning vehicles on the stretch of 102nd Avenue, from 99th to 103rd Street, is discussed in a new city report. That portion of 102nd Avenue has been closed for LRT construction, but the current plan is to eventually reopen one lane to eastbound vehicle traffic. One community group hopes the space could become a space for walking, chairs and tables, and pos
TOKYO (AP) — President Joe Biden faced a dilemma on trade in Asia: He couldn't just rejoin the Trans-Pacific Partnership that his predecessor had pulled the U.S. out of in 2017. Many related trade deals, regardless of their content, had become politically toxic for U.S. voters, who associated them with job losses. So Biden came up with a replacement. During Biden's visit to Tokyo, the U.S. on Monday planned to announce the countries that are joining the new Indo-Pacific Economic Framework. In th
Tom McLeod, an Inuvialuk and Gwich'in storyteller from Aklavik, N.W.T., and Inuit TV co-CEO Lucy Qavavauq, are ready to bring more Inuktut and Inuit-centric television programming into people's homes. "Inuit TV network is really important because it's a space for Inuit to see themselves on television. It's a space to hear our languages … where Inuit can create whatever content we want," said McLeod. McLeod is a filmmaker who has worked as a radio personality, produced TV for the Inuvialuit Commu
SEOUL (Reuters) -U.S. President Joe Biden, in Seoul before heading to Japan as part of his first Asia trip as president, had a simple message for North Korea's Kim Jong Un: "Hello... period," he told reporters on the last day of his visit to South Korea on Sunday. Biden said he was "not concerned" about new North Korean nuclear tests, which would be the first in nearly five years. But his wry response when asked what message he had for Kim underscored the administration's low-key approach to the unresolved tensions with North Korea.
North-east Bangladesh's worst floods in nearly 20 years began receding on Sunday, but rescue workers were struggling to help millions marooned by extreme weather across the region that has killed around 60 people.
The body of a teenage girl who fell into a river in the Laurentians two weeks ago has been found, provincial police say.

Police later confirmed the body they recovered was that of the girl that went missing in the same river on May 12 in Sainte-Adèle. The teenager, whose identity and age has not been made public, was st
TOKYO (Reuters) -Space is a key area of cooperation for Japan with the United States, its closest ally, amid heightened tensions with an increasingly assertive China, which itself aims to become a space power. Tokyo has said it hopes to put one of its astronauts on the lunar surface - the first non-American - in the latter half of the 2020s as part of NASA's Artemis programme to return humans to the moon. Japan has an extensive space programme, mainly focused on developing launchers and space probes.
