CINCINNATI (AP) — Democratic House candidate Greg Landsman can tick off how his party's control of Congress and the White House has benefited his city. The bipartisan infrastructure deal will mean upgrades to the heavily traveled highway bridge linking Cincinnati with its airport and northern Kentucky while bolstering a vital westside viaduct. COVID-19 relief funding meant training for more new police academy recruits. A sprawling spending package capped insulin prices. But Landsman won't say wh
Flipping through her high school yearbook doesn't spark nostalgia in Janaye Majer. "Memories I don't miss at all," she said of her time at Queen Elizabeth Secondary. Majer, who is Black, says she was bullied and targeted with racial slurs at the Surrey, B.C., high school. Over the years, she says she was subjected to the N-word and told "really derogatory racial things about myself." "I was told to kill myself and just very terrible things that I had to go through." Majer says, in her case, teac

In his dining room in Cochrane, Atla., Dan Kroffat watches a YouTube video of an old Stampede Wrestling match. The 77-year-old former professional wrestler was part of the tour in the 1970s. He travelled far and wide across the Prairies with Stampede Wrestling. "I would travel to different towns, Saskatoon, Regina, Edmonton, Lethbridge and other cities and towns as well. So it was a hectic, hectic schedule, if you will, but the show was very vibrant," he said. "People saw us on the streets and t
WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Joe Manchin on Tuesday abandoned his push to speed up the permitting process for energy projects as part of a government funding package, bowing to bipartisan opposition that had complicated efforts to pass a spending bill before the fiscal year ends at midnight Friday. Removing the permitting legislation is likely to make it much easier to pass a spending bill that will keep the government running through mid-December and provide more aid to Ukraine.

Powerful storm Fiona slammed into Canada's eastern fishing and farm industries over the weekend, smashing wharves, food processing plants and barns that will take months to repair. One of the worst storms Canada has ever faced left more than one-third of customers in the Atlantic province of Nova Scotia without power, swept homes into the sea and left one person dead. Fishing is a key industry in Canada's Atlantic provinces, which produce some of the world's largest lobster exports.
The Canadian Space Agency has posted satellite photos that dramatically illustrate how post-tropical storm Fiona changed Prince Edward Island's coastline. "This comparison of satellite images of Prince Edward Island and the Northumberland Strait, taken on Aug. 21 and Sept. 25, 2022, shows the extent to which the extreme wind and wave action of the storm has churned up the seafloor and eroded the coastline," the agency said on Twitter Tuesday. The space agency said the images were from the Europe

BRUSSELS (AP) — Italy’s European Union partners are signaling discomfort, even vigilance, after Italy, one of the bloc’s founding members, swung far to the political right. The result of Italy's latest election raises troubling questions about whether Rome will maintain its commitments to EU principles, laws and ambitions.

(AP) — Wisconsin’s Republican Assembly leader is suing to block a subpoena that orders him to testify before the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection about a conversation he had with Donald Trump about overturning the 2020 election.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — A. U.S. aircraft carrier and its battle group launched drills with South Korean warships off the Korean Peninsula’s east coast on Monday in their first such training in five years, a day after North Korea test-fired a short-range ballistic missile in a possible response to the exercise. North Korea could conduct more tests in coming days as it views U.S.-South Korean military exercises as a practice to invade the county and often reacts with displays of weapons designed
Hundreds of people gathered to remember fallen officers and their families on Police and Peace Officers' Memorial Day Sunday. A parade of officers, bagpipers and a choir were part of the day's events at the Alberta Legislature.

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Former New Jersey Gov. James Florio, who championed a plan that substantially raised the state’s sales and income taxes leading to his reelection defeat in 1993, died Sunday. He was 85. His law partner Doug Steinhardt and current New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy confirmed Florio died in statements on Monday. “Governor Florio was a fighter who never backed down. He was a leader who cared more about the future of New Jersey than his own political fortunes,” Murphy, a fellow Democra
