A year and a half into the COVID-19 pandemic, the general manager of Cole Harbour Place says the past week has been the toughest yet on staff because of the harassment they're facing from some people opposed to Nova Scotia's upcoming proof-of-vaccination policy. Beginning Oct. 4, people looking to participate in non-essential activities, such as going out to restaurants, bars, movie theatres or fitness facilities, will need to show they're fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

An annual Sudbury motorcycle rally that raises money for the Sick Kids Foundation will take on new significance for a local family this year. 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.

The number of complaints coming into Ottawa's bylaw department is rising so steadily that its director says officers are struggling to do proper investigations and meet their expected response times. Roger Chapman, the city's director of bylaw and regulatory services, said the increase is tied to the fact both human and pet populations are growing while council is passing new bylaws that need to be enforced. Last year, there were 13,510 pandemic-related calls for officers to patrol parks, crack
Recent developments: Ottawa reports 75 more COVID-19 cases Friday. What's the latest? Ottawa Public Health (OPH) reported 75 more COVID-19 cases Friday and no deaths.

Canadian experts now warn it will take more than just a r
OTTAWA — Political parties put up election signs on streets to keep up with each other and to build momentum — even though one expert says there is little data to prove this tactic has any impact on the parties’ winning chances. The use of plastic and paper election signs shows how traditional campaign strategies are still important despite the rise of online efforts in recent elections, said Carleton University professor Jonathan Malloy.

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
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

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.

One of Canada's leading advocates for Canadians with disabilities says they are heading into election day on Monday with little confidence that their needs are a priority — and few firm promises from federal parties. David Lepofsky, who is blind, is the chair of the Accessibility for Ontarians With Disabilities Act Alliance, or AODA Alliance. His group, which is non-partisan, sent each party a letter in early August requesting they make 12 specific commitments related to accessibility. The reque

"I'm happy to see my family here, but it's torture for me because I couldn't bring my parents with me," the real estate agent from Brampton said over the phone. "It was the hardest goodbye ever, but deep down I have hope that I can bring them here." The single mother says she was beaten, shot at and barely dodged a bomb outside Kabul airport during the chaotic journey. All she t
