About 600 trees and shrubs are being planted in Pinhey Forest this fall after the derecho windstorm six months ago felled great swaths of trees in the area. While a detailed analysis hasn't yet materialized, the National Capital Commission (NCC) estimated earlier this year that the May 21 severe weather event destroyed about 70 per cent of the upper tree canopy in both Pinhey Forest and Pine Grove to the east. Hydro One provided funding to the NCC for the tree planting project. It came after tre
PARIS (Reuters) -French President Emmanuel Macron will be hosted by U.S. President Joe Biden next week in a rare state visit aimed at highlighting Franco-American friendship rather than the bitter economic competition between the two sides of the pond. More than a year after Washington, London and Canberra torpedoed a big French submarine contract, pushing Franco-US relations to breaking point, the two countries are expected to put on a show of unity on common threats from Russia and China. Macron will try to convince the United States it is in their interest not to weaken European companies at a time Western allies are facing intense economic competition from China, which they say uses its economic might as diplomatic leverage.
British Columbia has asked First Nations if they want old-growth forests set aside from logging, allowing time for long-term planning of conservation and sustainable development, but it has yet to fund the process on a large scale, advocates say. In the meantime, some of the biggest and oldest trees are being cut down. Several years before the B.C. government launched the process last November to defer logging in old-growth forests at risk of permanent biodiversity loss, Ahousaht First Nation wa

Amid an influx of emergency department visits, the Alberta Children's Hospital is adding additional waiting space that will be used when the hospital's emergency department is at capacity. It comes at a time when a recent spike in respiratory viruses within the community has caused a 20 to 30 per cent increase in visits to the ACH's emergency department (ED). The health authority said the ED is seeing more than 300 visits a day recently, compared to between 180 and 220 prior to the recent surge
VICTORIA — British Columbia's budget forecast shows a surplus of $5.7 billion, dwarfing the previous estimate and giving the government room to help people facing the ongoing cost-of-living crunch, says Finance Minister Selina Robinson. The projected surplus is $5 billion higher than the $706 million forecast last September, Robinson said Friday. The latest fiscal update, covering the government's financial results from last April to September, puts the province in a “significant surplus positio
WASHINGTON/HOUSTON (Reuters) -Chevron Corp on Saturday received a U.S. license allowing the second-largest U.S. oil company to expand its production in Venezuela and bring the South American country's crude oil to the United States.

TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — Protests against China's strict “zero-COVID” policies resurfaced in Shanghai and Beijing on Sunday afternoon, continuing a round of demonstrations that have spread across the country since a deadly apartment fire in the northwestern city of Urumqi led to questions over such rigid anti-virus measures. Crowds stood and filmed as police started shoving at people who had gathered in on the same street in Shanghai where police had cleared hundreds away with force just hours befo
LONDON (AP) — “The Flatshare” stars Jessica Brown Findlay and Anthony Welsh got to do all their own stunts in their new rom-com TV series. The stunts in question? Writing Post-it notes, which sometimes required multiple takes: “I got so many sent back being like, ‘It’s great, but that’s not how you spell that word,’” Brown Findlay laughed. Based on the bestselling book by Beth O’Leary that was translated into more than 25 languages, “The Flatshare” revolves around two strangers who live in the s
Some B.C. business owners say they are concerned about rising tensions between Canada and China, after Chinese President Xi Jinping confronted Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the recent G20 summit in Indonesia. China is B.C.'s second-largest trade partner. At the summit, the Prime Minister's Office told reporters that Trudeau raised serious concerns with Xi about Chinese "interference'' in Canada, but offered no specifics. In a rare unplanned exchange caught by cameras, Xi later confronted Trud
LONDON (AP) — This is a dress with a story, and Elizabeth Emanuel wants to tell it. Shocking pink with a plunging, ruffled neckline and body-hugging shape, the gown was designed by Emanuel for Lady Diana Spencer to wear at a Buckingham Palace party a few days before her marriage to Prince Charles in 1981. It was a visual coming-out event for the future princess, until then largely known for her conservative sweater-and-pearls look. “This was definitely not a wallflower dress,” said Emanuel, who

NANTUCKET, Mass. (AP) — President Joe Biden went holiday shopping on the Massachusetts resort island where he spends Thanksgiving, patronizing smaller independently owned stores on what the retail industry has called “Small Business Saturday.” Biden, his wife, Jill, and daughter Ashley went from store to store on Main Street in downtown Nantucket, lingering at Polo Ralph Lauren, Murray’s Toggery Shop and The Black Dog, among other establishments. The president’s son Hunter and his wife, Melissa,
