Opinion polls indicate no party will gain a majority of seats in the Canadian election on Monday, for the second straight time, leaving one of the two front-runners - Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau or Conservative leader Erin O'Toole - trying to govern with a minority. Trudeau, who has led a minority government since 2019, called an early election in a bid to capitalize on the Liberals' handling of the pandemic and swing to a majority. If Trudeau wins a majority of the 338 seats in the House of Commons, he will remain prime minister.
For the past two summers, people who live in Red Lake, Ont., have thanked local volunteer firefighters and forest firefighters for keeping their community safe. In 2020, the community was evacuated because of a nearby fire. In 2021, the community was on an evacuation alert, with some people voluntarily leaving the community and some of the most vulnerable people being moved out. It's the work of these forest firefighters, often working in remote areas, in all weather and temperatures, that caugh
With demand for toys at an all-time high, U.S. suppliers and retailers are racing to outrun severe air, sea and land shipping snarls so Santa has a mountain of dolls, scooters and video game consoles to deliver at Christmas. The holidays account for a major chunk of the toy industry's nearly $33 billion annual sales, and LEGO blocks, MGA Entertainment's L.O.L. Surprise dolls, Mattel's Barbies and Sony's PlayStation game consoles were among top sellers last year. Hitches in logistics could result in empty-handed consumers and lost sales for retailers like Walmart and Target - where Reuters and analysts this year have seen some gaps in shelves among seasonal items, from school supplies and backpacks to Halloween decor and costumes.
Across Southeast Asia, sidewalk hawkers offer sizzling meat skewers bathed in the smoky aroma of smoldering wood coals and a seemingly endless combination of savory sauces. n Thailand, they might be pork slathered in coconut cream, or in Singapore, they could be charred chicken smothered in spicy peanut sauce. For this recipe from our book “COOKish,” which limits recipes to just six ingredients without sacrificing flavor, we decided to highlight the lesser-known but still familiar flavors of Mya
As Saskatchewan broke multiple COVID-19 records over the weekend, there was at least one positive piece of information that started to become a little clearer. COVID-19 vaccination numbers have begun to climb since Premier Scott Moe announced mandatory masking and proof-of-vaccination policies on Thursday. Although it's only three days' worth of data, the initial signs point to a response from Saskatchewan residents who may have delayed or resisted getting a jab. On every day since the province
The search for two missing fishermen from Mary's Harbour has resumed with the help of the Canadian Armed Forces and the coast guard Monday, after the official search off the coast of southern Labrador was called off Sunday night. In a Facebook post Monday, Labrador MP Yvonne Jones wrote that an RCAF maritime patrol plane and a coast guard vessel are now assisting in the search under the authorization of federal ministers after the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre in Halifax decided to end its se
Whether it was establishing their territory or getting in good with the ladies, male tyrannosaurs got right up in each other's faces during prehistoric clashes of epic proportions. At least, that's a hypothesis being put forward by a team of Alberta paleontologists that studied 202 tyrannosaurid skull specimens featuring 324 bite marks and battle scars. "Basically these animals were biting each other on the face," said Caleb Brown, co-author of a recent study and a curator at the Royal Tyrrell M

BERLIN (AP) — German voters elect a new parliament on Sept. 26, a vote that will determine who succeeds Chancellor Angela Merkel after her 16 years in power. While it should be clear within hours of the polls closing how the parties fared, it may take longer to find out who the next chancellor will be — and what the political complexion of his or her government will be. Here's a look at how the process works. WHO CAN VOTE, AND WHEN? German citizens age 18 and above are entitled to vote and to be
Canadians are heading to polls across the country today, Monday, Sept. 20, after Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau called the snap election 36 days ago.
PARIS (AP) — French President Emmanuel Macron apologized Monday to Algerians who fought alongside French colonial forces in Algeria’s war for independence, and were then massacred and ostracized as traitors. In a solemn ceremony interrupted by the cries of one fighter’s daughter, Macron also promised a law guaranteeing reparations for the contingent known as the harkis. The distraught woman, who said she grew up in a camp where France sequestered harkis after the war, argued that the law wouldn’

A Supreme Court decision on a case that threatens to derail the Muskrat Falls rate mitigation deal is expected this week — a matter Innu Nation Grand Chief Etienne Rich says should have never gone to court. The Innu Nation is seeking a court injunction that would halt talks to finalize a $5.2-billion agreement-in-principle between Canada and Newfoundland and Labrador, signed July 28. Rich says the framework of that deal was created without proper consultation. "If we're in the process of moving
UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) -UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged leaders of the world's major economies including the United States to deliver on their commitments toward a $100 billion per year climate fund with less than six weeks to go before a U.N. climate summit. Johnson and U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres hosted a roundtable of world leaders on Monday to address major gaps on emissions targets and climate finance. "I’ll stress that again - for this to be a success we need developed countries to find that $100 billion."
The fall of Afghanistan's capital over a month ago to Taliban insurgents not only robbed Saleem Yousofzada of sleep, but of hope. The Kabul-based filmmaker has, like numerous other documentarians, been living in fear of reprisal from militants for long depicting the experiences and highlighting the voices of Afghans in the country, now under new Taliban rule. "They just lost totally their hopes. They don't have hopes for the future," said Yousofzada in a video interview in reference to fellow Ka

The family of a man who drowned six years ago in Nova Scotia and a diving safety advisor who has been examining his death are calling for changes to make underwater work safer in an industry plagued by fatalities. Angela Seabrook said like many of the people drawn to diving, her son, Luke, loved exploring and wasn't afraid to take risks. "But that doesn't mean to say that they have to lose their lives over it," she said from her home in Wasaga Beach, Ont. "The risk can be minimized…. So they can
Nova Scotia seafood companies have come to the aid of Ocean Choice International of St. John's, harvesting hundreds of tonnes of scallops for the company after its factory trawler Atlantic Destiny sank on Georges Bank in March. "Thankfully, they had enough capacity among them in the fleet to be able to take the quota out of the water," said Ocean Choice CEO Martin Sullivan. "They were all really helpful. Firstly, around the sinking, helping us in that situation, but then also helping us harvest
The Tourism Industry Association of Alberta (TIAA) conducted surveys of fellow residents of Alberta on the impacts of the outdoor recreation economy. Around 0.8 per cent of Alberta’s GDP is accounted for on recreational trips to Crown lands. The employment rate resulting from this spending is 6.1 times higher than both the forest and logging industries. On average, Alberta’s outdoor enthusiasts spend $258 per day trip and $757 per overnight trip. Each year, these consumers spend $2.3 billion on
(Reuters) -U.S. regulators could authorize a booster shot of the Pfizer Inc/BioNTech SE COVID-19 vaccine for older and some high-risk Americans early this week in time for the government to roll them out by Friday. The Food and Drug Administration is expected to give the nod to the third shots for at least this group before advisers to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are due to meet on Wednesday. On Friday, an FDA advisory committee voted to recommend emergency authorization of the additional Pfizer shots for Americans 65 and older and those at high risk of severe illness.
