MOSCOW (Reuters) -Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday told his counterpart from Belarus that Moscow would supply Minsk with missile systems capable of carrying nuclear weapons, the Russian foreign ministry said. At a meeting with Putin in St Petersburg, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko expressed concern about the "aggressive", "confrontational" and "repulsive" policies of its neighbours Lithuania and Poland. He asked Putin to help Belarus mount a "symmetrical response" to what he said were nuclear-armed flights by the U.S.-led NATO alliance near Belarus' borders.

Mary Kilroy's son Patrick Bennett didn't set out to get hooked on drugs. After losing him to a drug overdose, she is now working to warn other parents. "We're losing our children," she says. "They're dying. And they're young." The grieving mother wants policy changes, to bring about more treatment options for addiction and safe supplies of illicit drugs. To help push toward those changes, Kilroy, who lives in St. John's, has become one of the first two people from Newfoundland and Labrador to jo

CAPE TOWN (Reuters) -South African authorities are investigating the deaths of at least 22 young people found inside a popular tavern in the coastal town of East London, provincial health officials and the presidency said on Sunday. State broadcaster SABC reported the deaths resulted from a possible stampede, but was scant on details as the exact cause of death remained unknown. The bodies will be transported to state mortuaries where relatives are expected to help identify both male and female victims, said Siyanda Manana, a spokesperson for the Eastern Cape provincial health department.
While there are no laws restricting access to abortion in Canada, access remains a major issue in parts of the country, and not all women who want one can get one.
As B.C. approaches the one-year anniversary of a heat dome that killed 619 people, experts are urging city planners to expand and protect the province's urban tree canopy — a surefire way to cool swaths of city streets and save lives without the cost of air-conditioning and overhauling building codes, they say. Stephan Sheppard, a professor emeritus at the University of British Columbia's department of forestry, says creating and preserving consistent urban tree canopy is "the best and the cheap

Born and raised in Quebec, Alison Ramsey has made efforts to live her life in the language of Molière, even if her heritage and first language are English. But lately she’s been feeling like her efforts are not enough. That’s because Bill 96, the province’s reform of the French language charter is going too far, she says. Global's Gloria Henriquez has more.
WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Poland’s conservative ruling party leader pushed back Sunday against what he described as Western views on LGBTQ rights. Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the head of the Law and Justice party, described a theoretical situation in which a person named Wladyslaw, which is traditionally a male name, comes to work asking to be called Zosia, a traditionally female name. “And according to what we are recommended from the West that everyone should obey it,” Kaczynski said at a rally in Grudzia
Conservation groups have been doing a lot of work lately to give people virtual access to important ecological areas in the Maritimes, but if that's given you the itch to go in person this summer, there are special precautions to take, according to two people who make a living promoting outdoor adventures. "These are not the places we want to start going bushwhacking," said Jan-Sebastian LaPierre, of Dartmouth-based marketing company A For Adventure. You probably should not go with a big group,

Friends and family have placed a memory stone dedicated to Brown in Bannerman Park, and will also participate in a Celebration of Li
NEW YORK (AP) — Parades celebrating LGBTQ pride kick off in some of America's biggest cities Sunday amid new fears about the potential erosion of freedoms won through decades of activism. The annual marches in New York, San Francisco, Chicago and elsewhere take place just two days after one conservative justice on the Supreme Court signaled, in a ruling on abortion, that the court should reconsider the right to same-sex marriage recognized in 2015. That warning shot came after a year of legislat
