BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — President Joe Biden's order to protect the nation’s oldest forests against climate change, wildfires and other problems devastating vast woodlands is raising a simple yet vexing question: When does a forest grow old? Millions of acres are potentially on the line — federal land that could eventually get new protections or remain open to logging as the administration decides which trees to count under Biden's order covering "old growth” and “mature” forests. Underlining the

LEEDS, Maine (AP) — The ripple effects of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have been devastating for families of all kinds — including those who have seen their prospective adoptions put on hold. Ukraine was once one of the U.S.’s most frequent partners on international adoptions, but the war changed all that: The embattled country has halted all international adoptions as the country copes with the turmoil unleashed on its courts and social services.

TORONTO — Ontario's political parties are offering differing visions for how to address the high cost of gasoline, with the NDP proposing to cap and regulate prices. The New Democrats say they would regulate retail and wholesale mark-up of gas prices, getting the Ontario Energy Board to set a weekly price that includes reasonable profits for gas companies. But Liberal Leader Steven Del Duca says regulating gas prices doesn't actually work, and the NDP plan would just put a weekly cap on gas pric

As of midday Friday, the average retail price at the pump across Canada was $1.99 per litre, according to fuel price tracking service GasBuddy.com.
