MONTREAL — Quebec Immigration Minister Jean Boulet on Monday welcomed Ottawa's decision to relocate about 100 asylum seekers who have crossed irregularly into the province — but he said that wasn't enough.

Ottawa needs to relocate more people to

If you've noticed your kids are getting sick more often lately, you're likely not the only one. P.E.I.'s College of Family Physicians says doctors have been seeing a high number of children with non-COVID-19 respiratory illnesses recently. Dr. Heather Austin, president of the college, said there are a number of factors that could be contributing to the increase, including the fact that throughout the pandemic children have had little exposure to these respiratory viruses.

Though Russia can claim a prize with its capture of Ukraine's eastern Luhansk region, it is far from Moscow's ambitious early war aims and does not deal Kyiv a decisive military blow. The Russian assault will now switch its focus to the rest of the Donbas industrial heartland, but Kyiv will find it easier to defend fortified positions in Donetsk region and the battles that will shape the war's course still lie ahead, military analysts said. "I think it's a tactical victory for Russia but at an enormous cost within the context of redefined military goals," said Neil Melvin, a London-based RUSI think tank analyst.

OTTAWA — The federal government says it has signed a $20-billion final settlement agreement to compensate First Nations children and families harmed by chronic underfunding of child welfare. The Assembly of First Nations and plaintiffs in two class-action lawsuits agreed to the deal, which also accounts for the government's narrow definition of Jordan's Principle. Indigenous Services Canada says the settlement is the largest in Canadian history. The $20 billion accounts for half of an overall $4
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas voters have said no to him twice over the past four years. But Kris Kobach is nonetheless betting that this can be the year he makes a political comeback. His losses, including a 2018 defeat that handed the governor's office in this Republican-leaning state to a Democrat, might end other political careers. But Kobach, who built a national reputation as an immigration hard-liner while Kansas secretary of state, is now aiming for the state attorney general's office. He f
Canada's two major airlines have had the poorest on-time performance of the 10 biggest North American airlines so far this summer, recent data shows.

According to an update going to the Planning and Housing committee on Tuesday, a report on how to best regulate multi-tenant housing throughout Toronto won't come until early next year to give staff enough time to tackle the slew of questions, consultations and studies that city council requested in October.
