A rematch three years in the making is the most important game of the season so far for the Vancouver Whitecaps, says head coach Vanni Sartini.

The 'Caps were heavily favoured when they came up against Cavalry in the 2019 tournament. But Calgary stunned with a 2-1 aggregate win, ousting t

The high inflation rate on P.E.I. is putting some businesses in the position of paying more to operate or charging more for services. In April, the inflation rate on P.E.I. was 8.9 per cent, the highest of any jurisdiction in the country. It means higher costs for items that need to be shipped in, such as baskets for plants at VK Greenhouses in Charlottetown. The greenhouse has had to increase the price of everything by at least 10 per cent to make a profit, said Peter Meijer, operations manager

Too Good To Go frames itself as a way to save surplus food at restaurants, bakeries and grocery stores, offering up items that would normally go to waste in heavily discounted surprise bags. "I was a little reluctant at first because I'm just like, oh my god, it's another thing to manage," said Theo Psalios, owner of Little Village, a Greek restaurant on Stony Plain Road. Psalios officially started using the app May 17,

When researchers at the University of Saskatchewan began to find bits of COVID-19 they couldn't identify earlier this month, they began to get curious. According to readings released on May 8, samples taken from Saskatoon's wastewater showed that 3.2 per cent were listed as "other lineages" and were not identified as the BA.2 variant of Omicron, which made up the vast majority of samples being taken (96.8 per cent). As a result, the researchers decided to send the mystery samples from Saskatoon

Richard Pebody, who leads the high-threat pathogen team at WHO Europe, also told Reuters in an interview that immediate supplies of vaccines and antivirals are relatively limited. His comments came as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it was in the process of releasing some Jynneos vaccine doses for use in monkeypox cases.
