Watershed Alliance says more data gathering, research and monitoring are needed in order to understand the impacts supplemental irrigation would have on both land and water in the province. The group presented before the provincial legislative committee on natural resources and environmental sustainability Thursday, providing recommendations for how supplemental irrigation could be approached sustainably if it was to be implemented on P.E.I. "We have to look at this as a long-term [is
In the quiet suburbs of Nepean, confusion brews over a silent war about election signs — at least one in particular. In addition to signs for local candidates in Monday's federal election, a third-party sign has popped up: "Nepean deserves better, not Arya." Those signs have been posted in front of Liberal signs for incumbent Chandra Arya, who has represented the riding since 2015. Residents who spoke to CBC News say they have noticed the "Not Arya" signs, and subsequently spotted them damaged a
You may think you've never been to Regina-Wascana. But in a way, you probably have. "It's a classic suburban riding," said Jim Farney, a University of Regina political scientist who lives in the area. "Some parts are pretty low-income and some parts are pretty affluent. There's a mix of students and academics. There's a classic blue-collar neighbourhood." It spreads from the main drag of Albert Street out to the eastern fringes of the city, bordered on the north by the Canadian Pacific Railway t
When Canada's national women's soccer team defeated Sweden for Olympic gold last month, more than four million Canadians were glued to the dramatic game. Among them was Marina Peres Labelle, 12, who is part of Pointe-Claire, Que.'s soccer program. She and some of her teammates would have liked to have been wearing a team jersey in their size to show support — but their hunt proved fruitless. "We couldn't find any women's jerseys and we were pretty disappointed because they had a bunch of men's j

This week, Quebec's government began enforcing its vaccine passport, an electronic record in the form of a quick response (QR) code. B.C. launched its own earlier this month and other provinces plan to soon roll out their own programs. The passports contain proof that a person has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, allowing them to participate in some indoor recreational activities. But apart from that, what do they accomplish, and how effective are they? CBC News spoke to some experts. Wha

Walking through the rows of trees and seeing the different varieties at Wintermoor Orchards in York, P.E.I., you can see the trees' branches laden with apples ripening in the sun. Apple growers are getting a good sense of this year's crop as the cooler fall nights begin to set in and U-picks begin to open. "This will be one of our bigger crops," said orchard co-owner Mark Ashley. "Things are ripening up nice. Size is up. I've gone through it walking my dog in the morning and pretty proud of it.
If COVID-19 pushes Alberta's health-care system past the breaking point, critical care will be reserved for patients with the greatest chance of survival, according to a government document that details how those life-and-death decisions would be made. Physicians are bracing for the grim possibility of rationing care. Premier Jason Kenney warned Wednesday, as he announced new restrictions, that the acute-care system could run out of staff and critical-care beds within 10 days. The critical care

OTTAWA — In this election, Hamilton, Ont., has turned into the city of love. The metro area of about 600,000 on the western tip of Lake Ontario has seen the leaders' buses carrying the NDP, Liberal and Conservative tours glide through at least six times in the first five weeks of the campaign. With only four ridings, Hamilton doesn't have the electoral bounty of Toronto, Vancouver or Montreal. But depending on who you talk to, all four Hamilton ridings could be in play, and in close races, the l

The fundraiser, called Ryleigh’s Ride, has been dedicated to its founder, Johnny Valcourt, who lost his life in a motorcycle accident on May 2. Valcourt launched Ryleigh’s Ride in 2019 to raise money for the hospital that saved his daughter’s life when she was born. This year, his widow Kerri Chevrier said the ride must go on – and she hopes to make a big
Alphabet's Google and Apple have removed jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny's tactical voting app from their stores, his team said on Friday, after Russia accused the U.S. tech firms of meddling in its internal affairs. Russia goes to the polls on Friday to elect a new parliament in a three-day vote that the ruling United Russia party is expected to win despite a ratings slump after the biggest crackdown on the Kremlin's critics in years.

The federal election race in the Nickel Belt riding is shaping up to be a close on. Incumbent MP Marc G. Serré and NDP candidate Andréane Chenier are toe to toe in national opinion polls, and experts predict the New Democrat has a serious chance of unseating the Liberal candidate. The NDP’s recently released northern Ontario platform is giving the party an edge on the competition, and many voters in the riding are unhappy with the Liberal government’s decision to call an election during the four
