VICTORIA — The mayor of Surrey, B.C., says the province is being "unfair" by requesting more information before it decides on the city's plan to revert to the RCMP as its police force. Brenda Locke said provincial bureaucrats were "overplaying their hand" by delaying the decision, after Public Safety Minister Mike Farnworth announced Thursday that the director of police services wanted more details from those involved in the "unprecedented" request. Locke said the request was frustrating, but th
Matthew Cameron, a 33-year-old engineer from Kensington, P.E.I., embarked on his second Dry January this month. His last Dry January lasted well into the summer. "I started realizing I value mornings, especially on the weekends," said Cameron. "Saturday mornings you can get up at 7, 8, just have that coffee and enjoy a clear head. That's higher up on the value list than those 2 a.m. kind of nights." With more people talking about Dry January, and the increased availability of non-alcoholic bever

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The U.S. population center is on track this decade to take a southern swerve for the first time in history, and it's because of people like Owen Glick, who moved from California to Florida more than a year ago. Last year, the South outgrew other U.S. regions by well over 1 million people through births outpacing deaths and domestic and international migration, according to population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau. The Northeast and Midwest lost residents, and the Wes
After a quick warmup, students at Many Guns Boxing and Fitness strap on their boxing gloves and their shin guards. Forming a circle around their instructor, Tawny Big Bull, they await their first instruction. "You're going to jump into your stance," he says, lifting his fists beneath his chin. "You're going to throw a jab-cross." Students partner up and begin the combination, smiles on their faces, some giggles when they forget their footwork. Their breath picks up as they move around the room,

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Mass shootings have commanded public attention on a disturbingly frequent basis across the U.S., from a supermarket slaying in Buffalo, New York, to an elementary school tragedy in Uvalde, Texas, to a recent shooting at a California dance hall. Rather than provoking a unified response from elected officials, each additional shooting seems to be widening the political divide among states on who should be allowed to have guns and what types are OK. “It’s wash, rinse and
