On Monday, in what seems like a scene out of a science fiction movie, NASA will slam a spacecraft into a distant asteroid to see whether it can nudge its orbit — all in an effort to test a way to protect Earth from any potential future threats. The good news is that there's no need to panic: The asteroid, which is part of a binary — or two-bodied — system, is not a threat to our planet, and there are no known ones that are headed our way for at least the next 100 years. However, space agencies l
In Nova Scotia hundreds of people have been displaced by post-tropical storm Fiona. On Sunday, residents of Cape Breton were beginning repairs and surveying the damage as politicians touched down to survey the devastation from the storm.
BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Barcelona defenders Jules Koundé and Ronald Araújo are sidelined for an undetermined period after sustaining leg injuries while playing for their national teams.

Powerful winds from post-tropical storm Fiona blasted Sydney, Nova Scotia, as the storm made landfall. Arlene Grafilo had to take shelter at a local hockey arena with her husband and two children after a tree crashed down on the duplex where they live, trapping them in the basement apartment.
Many Cape Bretoners woke up to uprooted trees, cracked power poles and washed out roads on Sunday after post-tropical storm Fiona ripped through the island. In the Sydney area, hundreds of people flocked to gas stations, fast-food restaurants and grocery stores in search of power, hot food, and fuel for their generators. The storm raged through Cape Breton on Saturday, downing trees and power lines, stripping siding and roofs from houses and leaving more than 65,000 customers on the island witho
After a tornado ripped through Bruce Pit off-leash dog park in 2018 the woodland is lush with new growth, and it provides a good example of what derecho-ravaged forests on other National Capital Commission (NCC) land will likely look like in a few years. But not all of the work done in Bruce Pit these last four years, or in NCC-owned Pine Grove and Pinhey Forest after the derecho in May, are ecological best practices, according to an urban forestry expert with the University of British Columbia.
On a humid evening in central Tokyo, Takehiko Tsukushi is chanting. "Stop the state funeral for Shinzo Abe!" He's among thousands of protesters holding signs and lining the street across from Japan's parliament building, while listening to fiery speeches blaring from a makeshift stage. "It's very wasteful," said Tsukushi, referring to the hefty price tag for the upcoming ceremony meant to honour the country's longest-serving yet deeply polarizing former leader. "He was a liar and he destroyed Ja
A four-day Bay of Fundy expedition earlier this month was life-changing for one Wolastoqey youth. "If I didn't get on that ship I wouldn't have gotten the opportunity to do everything I did on there," said Korey Lyons, from Sistansisk (St. Mary's First Nation), near Fredericton. "I just never seen the water the same." The 20-year-old joined three other Wolastoqey youth aboard the Polar Prince as part of a research voyage held by the Students on Ice Foundation. The Wolastoqey cohort boarded the 7
Ottawa police say they are reviewing exactly what happened when a social media post about the murders of women this year was edited to remove the word "femicide." On Sept. 16, Ottawa police posted a bulletin about five recent homicides of women and how they shared similarities. "The women were all victims of femicide," the bulletin read. "In each case, men are facing charges." Then minutes later, the post was once again published on the force's social media feeds, but this time, the word "femici

England is already certain to finish bottom of Group A3 and drop out of the top tier of the Nations League after losing to Italy on Friday.

He's only been riding his motorcycle for a few months, but Marshall McNaughton has already seen how dangerous it can be. "A lot of people are distracted and are just trying to go to work," he says. "They're not thinking about the big picture. They just look at you as an object. When I'm going to work or just go for a little ride, you have to keep your head on a swivel because people are very dangerous." McNaughton has seen things that people do behind the wheel. "They're on their phones, changin
MONTREAL — The question of Quebec independence has been put on the back burner during Quebec's election campaign, but Parti Québécois Leader Paul St-Pierre Plamondon is fighting to secure a place for it — and his party — after the Oct. 3 vote. St-Pierre Plamondon, whose once-strong party has been relegated to last place in the polls, invoked the independence question during the final leaders debate on Thursday, making a direct appeal to sovereigntists who jumped ship to the Coalition Avenir Queb
TORONTO — The Ontario government is refusing to publicly divulge its progress in enrolling children in core autism therapies, after the last update showed it was far off its own target. Merrilee Fullerton, the minister of children, community and social services, has said the government would get 8,000 kids into core clinical services by the end of the fall, but as of last month that number was only about 888. Government officials said at that time that movement was initially slow due to getting
