The Conservative Party won the most votes in the 2021 election, but were not able to translate that support in the most number of seats.
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
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.
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

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. In Spadina-Fort York, NDP candidate No
It's not a majority. It might not even be a stronger minority. It could, in fact, end up being an election that produces a House of Commons nearly identical to the one that was dissolved five weeks ago. But it's a win for Justin Trudeau — which, for him, at least beats the alternative. "You are sending us back to work," Trudeau said in the early hours of Tuesday morning, "with a clear mandate to get Canada through this pandemic and to the brighter days ahead." A small crowd at the Queen Elizabet
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.
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
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.
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
CORNWALL – SDSG remains blue. Conservative candidate Eric Duncan has won in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry. Duncan took an early lead in the riding after the polls closed at 9:30 p.m. Both CTV and CBC declared Duncan the winner just after 10:15 p.m. While Duncan is being returned to the House of Commons as MP, he will continue to serve on the opposition benches. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau will form another minority government. As of 11:15 p.m. EST, the Liberals are leading or elected in 155
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
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.
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

What we are watching in Canada ... Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be returning to Ottawa without the majority government mandate Liberals had hoped for when he called the early election last month. Early Tuesday, the Liberals were hovering between 155 and 157 seats. The former is the number they had when Trudeau called the elec
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
Saskatchewan residents no longer need a PIN to sign up for an eHealth account. The move was made to make it easier for citizens to access their COVID-19 vaccine information through MySaskHealthRecord. The change came into effect Monday due to high demand from people looking to access their account after the province announced upcoming vaccine requirements for many public spaces. Davin Church, the VP of program and technology for eHealth Saskatchewan, said PIN verification will not be used for th
