Sometimes cooking is about creativity, about the joy of an afternoon stretching out in front of you with a fiddly baking project or multi-course meal to lose yourself in.
Retirement is a time of frugality for many, since other than Social Security and pension payments, many folks don't have much money coming in. If you're not rooted to a specific location, you are free...
VICTORIA — Plans to make room for patients with respiratory illnesses by cancelling surgeries are in place in British Columbia hospitals, says Health Minister Adrian Dix, as parents worry about long emergency room waits with sick children. But the province has yet to reach the point of scrapping operations, said Dix Thursday, as he faced Opposition calls for his resignation. Parents and the Opposition have decried lengthy waits at emergency rooms across B.C. for children suffering serious respir
DUBAI (Reuters) -Iran's Revolutionary Guards have built up their presence in restive Kurdish regions, state media reported on Friday amid a crackdown on mass protests, as video showed demonstrations in minority Baluch areas of the southeast. The mass demonstrations that erupted after the Sept. 16 death in custody of 22-year old Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini spread rapidly across the country but have been most intense in areas populated by ethnic minorities, many of whom are Sunni Muslims. The unrest has posed one of the biggest challenges to Iran's Shi'ite clerical rulers since they came to power in the 1979 Islamic Revolution, with previous bouts of sustained protest eventually being crushed.

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — The two men were sitting at a bar on Nov. 21, sipping drinks for relief from the scorching heat of Brazil's Mato Grosso state, when police officers barged in and arrested them for allegedly torching trucks and an ambulance with Molotov cocktails. One man attempted to flee and ditch his illegal firearm. Inside their pickup truck, officers found jugs of gasoline, knives, a pistol, slingshots and hundreds of stones — as well as 9,999 reais (nearly $1,900) in cash. A federal ju
OTTAWA — The Liberals say their proposed definition of a prohibited assault-style firearm applies only to guns that belong on the battlefield. But Conservative MPs are continuing to insist the federal move would outlaw many ordinary hunting rifles and shotguns. The Liberal government wants to include an evergreen definition of a prohibited assault-style firearm in gun-control legislation being studied by the House of Commons public safety committee. The measure, introduced Tuesday during clause-
Researchers at a Quebec university collected the stories of more than 35 First Nations and Inuit women, who recounted their experiences with forced sterilization and imposed abortions in Quebec — a practice that had not been studied in the province. Of the 35 accounts in the report released today, there were 22 cases of forced sterilization of Indigenous women in Quebec since 1980. The report attributes the practice to systemic racism — something the Coalition Avenir Québec has refused to acknow
The Emergencies Act inquiry has heard from all witnesses who were scheduled to testify over the course of the six-week-long process. The Public Order Emergency Commission will have until February to decide whether the Trudeau government was justified in its unprecedented decision. Eric Sorensen examines the major findings from the course of the entire inquiry, looking at what can be learned from the ordeal.
OTTAWA — Respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV, appears to be slowing in Ontario, the province's health minister said Friday, although she warned that influenza was expected to ramp up. A combination of RSV, the flu and COVID-19 have been putting immense strain on pediatric hospitals across Ontario, with many having to cancel surgeries to accommodate the influx of patients. Health Minister Sylvia Jones said that while RSV seems to be somewhat easing, the province is still heading into influenza se
Body-camera footage shows police interaction with 22-year-old Christian Glass before he was fatally shot in June. Glass had called 911 for help and was suffering a mental health crisis at the time.
DOHA, Qatar (AP) — Just wait, thought Ritsu Doan. Just wait. The Japan midfielder, who plays for German team Freiburg, had to grit his teeth when he heard people saying his team would be an easy opponent for Germany at the World Cup. “I listened to their talks with a fake smile on my face and in my heart,” the 24-year-old Doan said Thursday after sparking a remarkable comeback and arguably the biggest result in Japan’s World Cup history the night before. After entering in the 71st minute, Doan o

The city of Windsor does not yet know how much it is costing to keep an emergency shelter for the roughly 40 residents evacuated from 1616 Ouellette Ave. earlier this week but it is tracking its expenses. "Our number one priority continues to be the health and well being of these displaced residents and the city has been working around the clock at this temporary shelter to ensure their needs are being met," said Andrew Daher, the city's commissioner of Human Health Services. Residents have been
Premier Tim Houston said his government will not back down after a decision to cap electricity prices led Nova Scotia Power to have its credit rating downgraded. The utility's parent company, Emera, warned a weaker credit rating will lead to increased costs to borrow money. It said that could ultimately result in higher prices for customers. Rating agency S&P Global announced the downgrade on Monday, citing the province's move to limit power-rate increases to 1.8 per cent this year and next. The
Social agencies that help homeless youth in Ottawa say the combined pressures of the pandemic and inflation are causing a surge in demand for services. Operation Come Home, which works to divert youth out of homelessness by offering a drop-in on weekday mornings, as well as employment and housing programs, says demand is up 33 per cent across the board over last year. By August, the organization said it had blown past its projected demand for the year. Executive director John Heckbert said it's
Videos showing guards at the Saint John Regional Correctional Centre punching an inmate were played in Fredericton provincial court this week following an unsuccessful attempt by the province to prevent the public from seeing them. The videos show Scott Morrison being tackled to the ground by two guards, followed by more guards swarming him and punching him while he was being held in the jail on Sept. 27. Morrison was on remand pending the outcome of his trial on eight drug trafficking offences.
Italy's only Black lawmaker suspended himself from his left-wing party on Thursday after his family was accused of mismanaging funds and exploiting staff at two associations meant to help immigrants. The growing scandal has dealt a severe political blow to Aboubakar Soumahoro, Italy's best-known activist for migrants' rights who only entered parliament last month after winning a seat in a national election for his Green and Left party. Soumahoro has denied any personal wrongdoing and neither his wife nor his mother-in-law have been formally charged over allegations that they failed to pay workers and siphoned off funds at two cooperatives they managed.
