McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. (AP) — An inspection of voting machines in a heavily Republican county in Pennsylvania had been poised to go forward Friday until an 11th-hour appeal to the state Supreme Court by lawyers for Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf put it on hold. The high court decision came hours after a state judge rejected attempts by the Wolf administration to block the inspection — inspired by former President Donald Trump’s baseless claims about fraud in the 2020 election — without certain agreements
A man, who was wanted after allegedly firing gunshots toward RCMP officers in Valleyview, Alta., last summer, was arrested in Edmonton Thursday night after local police responded to a weapons complaint.

The COVAX global vaccine-sharing programme has delivered 1 billion COVID-19 vaccine doses, one of the organisations which manages it said on Saturday. But in the last quarter shipments have exponentially increased, allowing COVAX to reach the milestone of 1 billion doses shipped to 144 countries, said Gavi, which co-leads the programme alongside the World Health Organization (WHO). COVAX was launched in 2020 with the goal of delivering 2 billion doses by the end of 2021, but was slowed by wealthier states' initial hoarding of limited shots, export restrictions and frequent changes https://www.reuters.com/business/healthcare-pharmaceuticals/global-vaccines-project-revamp-rules-after-britain-got-more-than-botswana-2021-09-27 within its organisation.
VICTORIA — A section of Highway 1 between Kanaka Bar and Spences Bridge in British Columbia's Fraser Canyon has been reopened two months after parts of it were washed away in torrential storms. A statement from the Transportation Ministry says the route opened Friday to traffic with legal width and loads, but vehicle length is restricted to 25 metres. It says the highway remains closed south of Kanaka Bar to Hope as record snow and avalanche risk have delayed reconstruction work. A series of atm

HALIFAX — Former federal NDP leader Alexa McDonough, a political trailblazer who paved the way for women in politics, died Saturday in Halifax at the age of 77. Her family confirmed McDonough's death after a lengthy struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. McDonough became the first woman to head up a major political party in Canada when she was elected leader of the Nova Scotia New Democrats in 1980. She became leader of the federal NDP in 1995 and served in the party's top post until 2002. But in an
Not many hit TV shows are inspired by the comments section of news articles. Showtime's Yellowjackets was conceived in 2017 when its creator saw that an all-girls remake of Lord of the Flies was being roundly mocked on the internet, with many doubting that girls would devolve into barbarism like the schoolboy characters of William Golding's 1954 novel. The new series — a kind of cross between the aforementioned book and the popular ABC show Lost — tells the story of an all-girls high school socc
WOLVERHAMPTON, England (AP) — Adama Traore scored his first goal of the season and Wolverhampton survived a late rally to beat Southampton 3-1 in the English Premier League on Saturday. Raul Jimenez converted a penalty in the 37th minute and captain Conor Coady headed home in the 59th before a nervy finish at Molineux Stadium. With Wolves seemingly in control, Southampton's James Ward-Prowse made it 2-1 in the 84th when he sent a powerful free kick into the top right corner from 30 yards (90 fee
The Alberta government plans to rescind a public health order barring health-care workers from working at more than one continuing-care facility by mid-February — if not sooner. Last fall, the province consulted with various unions and "other staff and employer representatives" about allowing health-care workers to work at more than one site, a spokesperson for the health ministry told CBC News in an email. The single-site order is expected to be rescinded Feb. 16, the spokesperson said. Althoug
HALIFAX — Thousands of customers in Nova Scotia remain without electricity one day after a powerful winter storm blew through parts of the Maritimes. Nova Scotia Power is reporting that just under 7,000 customers are still off the grid as of 9:30 a.m. The outages are scattered across the province, however the majority are in Lunenburg County on the South Shore. The storm brought winds of 90 kilometers an hour and heavy snow to areas of western, central and northern Nova Scotia and led to some te
The National Tsunami Warning Center has cancelled sweeping advisories that blanketed much of coastal British Columbia on Saturday and cautioned residents to be mindful of potential strong currents and waves along local shorelines. The advisories, issued early on Saturday morning and lifted shortly after 3 p.m. local time, followed a volcanic eruption in the Pacific Basin near the Tonga Islands.

MONTREAL — A new poll suggests support may have slipped for a key element of Quebec's secularism law, known as Bill 21. A web panel survey carried out by Leger for the Association for Canadian Studies earlier this month found 55 per cent of Quebecers are in favour of banning religious symbols being worn by public school teachers. That appears to be a drop from the results of a previous Leger survey published in September that found 64 per cent of Quebecers were in favour of Bill 21, which applie
A pair of businesses in Regina and Saskatoon are bringing the Betty White Challenge to their respective cities in an effort to raise money for local animal shelters.

Not only did the famed actor and comedian entertain countless people during her illustrious career, but she was also a devoted animal lover who helped with wildlife conservation and education efforts.
