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
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
One of the first things Edward Wilson did when he got home after being hospitalized for six months with COVID-19 was ask his wife if she knew him. Wilson, 80, contracted the novel coronavirus in March. He spent time in three intensive care units, was intubated twice and given a tracheotomy. His condition was so grave that his relatives were told twice to make arrangements for his death and gathered around on an iPad to say goodbye. "It was such a rollercoaster ride because he'd get better, then
Bloc Québecois Leader Yves-François Blanchet is projected by CBC News to retain his seat in Beloeil–Chambly, though his party may fall just short of its seat total from the 2019 election. The Bloc is currently leading or projected to win in 31 ridings in Quebec, down one from the seats it held when Parliament was dissolved in August. The party is projected to remain in third place in Parliament as the NDP is on track to finish fourth with 27 seats, In an early morning speech at his campaign head
The Nova Scotia government says it made $104 million from its investment in Meta Materials Inc., a Dartmouth startup company that makes high-performance materials used in the defence and aerospace industries. The province's venture capital Crown corporation Innovacorp was an early investor, putting $3 million into the nanotechnology company. In July, Innovacorp sold its shares shortly after Meta Materials was listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange. The sale produced a 35-fold return on investment.
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.
Windsor resident Yvonne Pilon's recent trip back to Detroit cost 100 times more than it normally would. Pilon travelled by air earlier this month to visit family and friends in Michigan for the first time since the pandemic began. And if she wants to visit them again, it looks like her pocketbook will take yet another hit. On Monday, U.S. President Joe Biden announced that the border would remain closed to non-essential visitors at land crossings such as the Ambassador Bridge and Windsor-Detroit
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
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
It was business as usual in Canada on Tuesday after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau fell short of winning a majority in a tightly fought federal election, leaving him once again dependent on opposition legislators to govern. Provisional results showed virtually no change from the 2019 election, leading voters to express frustration over the "waste of money". "Canada's political landscape looks remarkably similar after this election to the way it did before - almost as if Canadians spelled out 'we don't want an election now' with their votes," said Doug Porter, chief economist at BMO Capital Markets.
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.
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
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
Canadians have re-elected a Liberal minority government, which may include a pair of first-time MPs from Richmond. Embracing the governing party’s platform Forward For Everyone, Liberal candidates appear to have won both local ridings over incumbent Conservatives. With 187 of 188 polls reporting in Steveston–Richmond East, Liberal candidate Parm Bains led with 15,420 total votes (42.8 per cent), leading incumbent Conservative MP Kenny Chiu who had 12,060 votes (33.4 per cent). NDP candidate Jack
India's plan to tighten rules on its fast-growing e-commerce market has run into internal government dissent, memos reviewed by Reuters show, with the Ministry of Finance describing some proposals as "excessive" and "without economic rationale". The memos offer a rare glimpse of high-stakes policy-making governing a market already featuring global retail heavyweights from Amazon to Walmart, plus domestic players like Reliance Industries and Tata Group. The sector is forecast by Grant Thornton to be worth $188 billion by 2025.
A community farm in Halifax is looking for help after an alleged impaired driver smashed through its storage shed early last Friday. Members said it's lucky the incident didn't happen later in the day, when the garden gets busy. "It could have been catastrophic. It would have been horrible," said Sara Burgess, co-ordinator of Common Roots BiHi Park site on Bayers Road. The driver careened from an on-ramp to Highway 102, sped across roughly 30 metres of grass, "missed our water tank which has 10,

The SickKids Foundation says the gift from Toronto entrepreneur Garry Hurvitz will support the hospital's centres for brain and mental health and community mental health. The not-for-profit says the funds will also support SickKids' research, care and education to improve outcomes for children and youth affected by
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.
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
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.
