Canada's unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic election was never going to be easy. The 36-day whirlwind campaign kicked off with many Canadians asking why they were even heading to the polls during a global crisis, but the Liberals pulled off a minority win, after a day of frustrations from long lines, miscommunications and site glitches.
Pounded by drought and cattle feed shortages, the last few months have been gruelling for many Prairie ranchers. Now, as fall approaches and people take stock, tough decisions loom as ranchers assess how much cattle they will keep through winter amid escalating costs. "I know that we're probably looking at liquidating about a third of our herd just because we can't find enough feed for the winter," said Melanie Wowk, who has about 300 cattle on a ranch in northeastern Alberta. She said feed cost
BERLIN (AP) — Angela Merkel, Germany's first female chancellor, has been praised by many for her pragmatic leadership in a turbulent world and celebrated by some as a feminist icon. But a look at her track record over her 16 years at Germany's helm reveals missed opportunities for fighting gender inequality at home. Named “The World’s Most Powerful Woman” by Forbes magazine for the last 10 years in a row, Merkel has been cast as a powerful defender of liberal values in the West. She has easily s
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A plaque and a palm tree weren't enough to mark the swagger and star power of Burt Reynolds. That's why a bronze bust, mustachioed of course, and sporting his “Smokey and the Bandit” cowboy hat, were unveiled on Monday, three years after his death. “Anybody else want to touch him?” Loni Anderson, Reynolds' wife from 1988 to 1994, asked the small crowd that gathered around the sculpture after the unveiling at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles. “Yes, he's made to be touc
LONDON (Reuters) -The European Court of Human Rights found on Tuesday that Russia was responsible for the assassination of ex-KGB officer Alexander Litvinenko, who died an agonising death in 2006 after being poisoned in London with a rare radioactive substance. Litvinenko, a defector who had become a vocal critic of the Kremlin, died three weeks after drinking green tea laced with polonium-210 at a plush London hotel. Britain has long blamed the attack on Moscow, and the European court in Strasbourg, France, agreed on Tuesday, saying in a statement that "Mr Litvinenko’s assassination was imputable to Russia", prompting a swift rebuke from the Kremlin.
OTTAWA — Canadians have chosen another minority Liberal government — almost identical to the one it replaced — to finish the fight against COVID-19 and rebuild the shattered economy. Precisely how stable a minority remains to be seen, as results were still trickling in and there were tight contests in dozens of ridings as the clock started running out on Monday night. There are also almost 800,000 mail-in ballots to be counted, starting Tuesday, which could yet change the preliminary results in
Recent developments: Ottawa reported 46 more cases of COVID-19 Tuesday. What were Justin Trudeau's pandemic campaign promises? What's the latest? Quebec reported nine more COVID-19 cases in the Outaouais Tuesday with three more deaths. Ottawa Public Health (OPH) reported 46 new COVID-19 cases and no deaths. Starting tomorrow, people in Ontario will have to show photo identification and either a paper or PDF version of their vaccine receipt to access many services as its vaccine passport launches
Waiting in line for hours late at night at a Vaughan, Ont., polling station was likely not the way Kay Baptiste-Douglas and her husband, Clive, expected to spend their wedding anniversary. And while it was a bit frustrating, they felt they had a duty to wait as long as it took to cast a ballot, she said. "A lot of people would probably fight for these liberties," said Baptiste-Douglas, standing in line at a polling station in King-Vaughan, a riding north of Toronto. The couple was among scores o
LOS LLANOS DE ARIDANE, Spain (Reuters) -Families rushed to retrieve belongings from their homes and escape the advancing lava on Tuesday, as sirens sounded and helicopters flew overhead in air filled with smoke from an erupting volcano on the Spanish island of La Palma. The largest flow was advancing towards a banana plantation and water reservoir as it crept closer to the main street of the town of La Laguna, travelling at about 200 metres an hour, authorities said. Lorena, a 42-year-old Laguna resident, raced to salvage furniture and electrical appliances from her parents' home.
BANGKOK (AP) — Health officials in the Thai capital made headway Tuesday in their effort to vaccinate children against the coronavirus, giving shots of the Pfizer vaccine to students aged 12 to 18 with underlying diseases. Vaccinations for that age bracket were first offered last month through hospitals, but now are arranged by schools. A separate campaign by a medical research institute on Monday began inoculating children aged 10 to 18 with China’s Sinopharm vaccine. On Tuesday, 1,500 students
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau narrowly won re-election on Monday but failed to secure a majority in parliament, after alienating some voters by calling a snap vote two years early during a fourth wave of the pandemic. The prospect of another minority government, in which Trudeau's Liberals will again need support from opposition parties to govern, raises questions about the future of a leader who came to power in 2015 promising "sunny ways" but has struggled to deliver on many of his ambitious policy promises. Trudeau, 49, took a gamble with his early election call two years ahead of schedule, betting that his handling of the pandemic and Canada's high vaccination rates would deliver him a stronger mandate to rule after the 2019 vote left him with a minority government.
A body found in a U.S. national park in Wyoming was identified as Gabby Petito, the 22-year-old "van life" traveler who went missing during a road trip with her fiance, the FBI said on Tuesday, adding a local coroner had ruled her death a homicide. The confirmation is the latest turn in a story that has gripped Americans since Petito's family reported her missing on Sept. 11. Ten days earlier the fiance, Brian Laundrie, returned home from the cross-country trip without her.
A pair of Plate Cove West inn owners are hoping to bring Syrian refugees to Newfoundland's Bonavista Peninsula with the help of some creative fundraising. Karen and her husband, Chris, are the owners of Round Da Bay Inn, and have hosted a number of events, including Eid celebrations, for Syrian friends in Gander. One day, they received an email from a Syrian refugee who said she found the events through Facebook, and asked if the Ricketts would be able to help her find a sponsor. After confirmin
It's still not clear if the NDP will be able to pull off a breakthrough win in Toronto this election. In the early hours of Tuesday morning, vote counting continued for Parkdale-High Park, Spadina-Fort York and Davenport in the city's downtown west end, with the Liberals and NDP showing close numbers. Davenport was particularly tight, with NDP candidate Alejandra Bravo and Liberal incumbent Julie Dzerowicz trading off leading their riding through the night. According to Denise Hammond, campaign
In Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole concession speech after the 2021 election turned in the Liberals favour for a minority government, he focused on Canada's "division" while teasing that he intends to stay on as leader of the party.
NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh is pledging to continue to fight for Canadians in a Liberal minority government. In a speech that echoed his messaging throughout the campaign, Singh promised to prioritize pharmacare, dental care, Indigenous issues and making the rich pay their fair share.
DEL RIO, Texas (Reuters) -Many residents of the Texan border town of Del Rio have been saying for months that they feel abandoned by the federal government as border arrests hit 20-year highs. On Friday night, a local lawyer published a Facebook post saying that local school district buses were transferring migrants, mostly Haitians, to processing facilities. "THE SAME BUSES OUR CHILDREN WILL RIDE ON MONDAY!!!!" Jacques De La Mota wrote alongside pictures of a yellow school bus seemingly picking up migrants in the dark.
The Greens continue to have two seats in the House of Commons — but a third is still up in the air as votes continue to be counted in Nanaimo-Ladysmith, the riding where Green Party incumbent Paul Manly is seeking re-election. The Greens' Mike Morrice in Kitchener Centre picked up a new seat becoming the first elected Green Party member in Ontario — while Elizabeth May handily retained her seat in her Saanich-Gulf Islands riding, a seat she has held since 2011. Green Party Leader Annamie Paul fa
Ontario's health ministry says it expects that very few people will falsify their COVID-19 vaccine certificates and medical exemptions once the province's proof of vaccination system goes into effect on Wednesday. An expert in Toronto, however, says it wouldn't be hard to forge such documents to gain entry into specific venues. "There are no security features present on these documents. These documents are basically PDF documents," said Dr. Shabnam Preet Kaur, a forensic document examiner with D
The president of the union representing nurses in B.C. has stepped down. A bulletin posted on the B.C. Nurses' Union (BCNU) website says Christine Sorensen resigned for "personal reasons and to pursue other opportunities." "The BC Nurses' Union thanks Christine Sorensen for her years of dedication and service to the BCNU," the bulletin reads. The resignation comes less than a week after the union said it did not support making COVID-19 vaccines mandatory for those working in health-care faciliti
