PARIS (AP) — For a player who doesn’t consider himself to be a striker, Mohamed Salah is the envy of many forwards with his scoring record for Liverpool. “I don’t play No. 9, I play on the wing,” Salah said. “It’s completely different when you play as a winger.” And yet the Egyptian enters the Champions League final on Saturday with 31 goals in 50 games for this season and as the leading forward in English football. An impressive goal return but one eclipsed by the true No. 9 that Real Madrid wi
The Supreme Court of Canada has issued a legal landscape-changing decision that will affect the sentences for some of the worst multiple murderers in the country, including southern Alberta child killers Derek Saretzky and Edward Downey. But it remains unclear what will happen to 75-year parole ineligibility period for Calgarian Douglas Garland — who murdered a five-year-old boy and his grandparents — and others whose cases are no longer in the system. In a unanimous decision, the country's high
OTTAWA (Reuters) -Canada's Supreme Court on Friday upheld a decision by a lower court to speed up the parole eligibility for the man convicted of gunning down six people in a mosque in 2017 and deemed a 2011 law that allowed lengthy parole sentencing as unconstitutional. Canada's top court was adjudicating on the case challenging a 2020 decision by a Quebec court to lower Alexandre Bissonnette's parole eligibility to 25 years from the original sentence that required him to wait much longer for the possibility of parole. The Supreme Court said that such a punishment removes a realistic possibility of parole and called it "incompatible with human dignity."

(AP) — Recounting began Friday in the too-close-to-call Republican primary contest for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, with barely 900 votes separating celebrity heart surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz and former hedge fund CEO David McCormick.

Most of Pennsylvania's 67 counties have said they will begin next week, with a Wednesday deadline to start. For less populated counties, the process cou

The Town of Come By Chance, which has been without an elected council for months — and has been in the grips of controversy for even longer — has been given approval by the provincial government to hold a special election. The vote will take place as five former elected leaders continue the process of appealing their dismissal from the town council, which means their seats may be filled before they have their day in court. Town manager Colin Holloway, who was not permitted to do an interview, co

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Mourners laid to rest the last of 10 Black people killed in a racist attack at a Buffalo supermarket with a service on Saturday that became a call to action and an emotional plea to end the hate and violence that has wracked the nation. The funeral for 86-year-old Ruth Whitfield — the oldest of the 10 people killed in the attack two weeks ago — included an impromptu speech by Vice President Kamala Harris. She attended the service at Mount Olive Baptist Church in Buffalo with
MOSCOW (AP) — The Russian navy on Saturday conducted another test of a prospective hypersonic missile, a demonstration of the military's long-range strike capability amid the fighting in Ukraine.

The launch was the latest in a series of tests of

Tuba players don't often get much time in the spotlight. They will sit near the back of the stage, not usually attracting a lot of attention, adding bass depth to the melody or helping to keep the rhythm, passing the glamour roles to violins or trumpets. Emerson Hammill is an exception to that rule. At the MusicFest Canada earlier this month, the tubist earned the Slaight Music Outstanding Performer Award, after having been selected to play in the Canadian Junior Honour Band with about 100 other
