MONTREAL — Quebec says walk-in clinics won't be able to offer Pfizer vaccines for the next several days due to a shipping delay. A Friday evening statement from the Ministry of Health says the 546,000 shots expected to be delivered over the weekend now won't arrive until June 24 or 25, prompting the temporary pause that takes effect today and is expected to lift when doses land. The Ministry statement says there's currently enough supply to ensure previously booked appointments can proceed over
RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Anti-government protesters took to the streets in more than a score of cities across Brazil on Saturday as the nation's confirmed death toll from COVID-19 soared past half a million — a tragedy many critics blame on President Jair Bolsonaro's attempt to minimize the disease. Thousands gathered in downtown Rio de Janeiro waving flags with slogans such as “Get out Bolsonaro. Government of hunger and unemployment.” “Brazil is experiencing a great setback. The country was an ex
OTTAWA — When European explorers first set foot on the lands that are now Canada, they claimed the territory as their own, despite the presence of Indigenous Peoples who had already been occupying the lands for generations. They did this using the "doctrine of discovery," a policy originally emanating from decrees issued by the pope in the 15th century authorizing Christian explorers to claim so-called "terra nullius," or vacant lands, based on the notion they had racial and religious superiorit
LONDON (AP) — England’s draw with Scotland showed just how confusing the European Championship format can be for the teams and even the organizers. UEFA’s official website stated ahead of Friday's game that a draw would secure England a spot in the round of 16 with a game to spare. Once England had underwhelmingly clinched that point after being held to a 0-0 draw by Scotland, qualification seemed likely but not guaranteed. England coach Gareth Southgate certainly wasn’t celebrating advancing, a
BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — An explosion rocked a munitions factory central Serbia on Saturday in the second such incident this month, injuring at least three workers, state-run Serbian television reported. A powerful explosion was heard just before 8 p.m. (1800GMT), followed by several smaller blasts, the TV report said. It added that the workers were slightly injured and treated at a local hospital. Authorities have ordered an evacuation from the area around the Sloboda factory in Cacak, which rem

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Afghanistan's is racing to ramp up supplies of oxygen as a deadly third surge of COVID-19 worsens, a senior health official told The Associated Press in an interview Saturday. The government is installing oxygen supply plants in 10 provinces where up to 65% of those tested in some areas are COVID positive, health ministry spokesman Ghulam Dastigir Nazari said. By WHO recommendations, anything higher than 5% shows officials aren’t testing widely enough, allowing the viru
WARSAW, Poland (AP) — The largest gay pride parade in central Europe took place again in Warsaw for the first time in two years after a pandemic-induced break — and amid a backlash in Poland and Hungary against LGBT rights. Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski walked at the head of the Equality Parade on Saturday — a sign of support for LGBT rights by the liberal politician. Thousands of people joined the march and were cheered on by others waving rainbow flags from their apartment balconies and sidew
ROME (AP) — Why stop now? That’s Italy’s approach for its final group match at the European Championship against Wales. The Azzurri have already advanced to the round of 16 but they are playing with so much spirit and audacity that it’s gotten to the point where it’s become infectious. So even though coach Roberto Mancini is expected to rest several starters from the opening two matches — both 3-0 wins — the reserves are just as anxious to carry out Italy’s free-flowing attacking game. “There’s
MONTREAL — The sun hadn't yet risen in Montreal on Friday morning when a contingent of Ontario hockey fans prepared to descend on the city ahead of what they saw as a monumental hockey game. The Montreal Canadiens were set to square off against the Las Vegas Golden Knights, marking the first time since 2014 that the team had made the National Hockey League's semi-finals, and Alexander Vizier and his friends had no intention of missing out. The group had driven 17 hours from the northern Ontario
TORONTO — Three children were wounded when gunfire broke out at a one-year-old's outdoor birthday party in northwest Toronto on Saturday evening, police said. A one-year-old boy was grazed by a bullet, while a five-year-old girl, 11-year-old boy and 23-year-old man were also wounded, said Toronto Police Supt. Ron Taverner. "It's unconscionable," he told reporters at the scene. "It's hard to believe." Taverner said the adult hit by the gunfire suffered a leg wound. Police were called to the scene
New research suggests wolves can be steered away from the endangered caribou herds they prey on by making the man-made trails they use to hunt harder to move along. The recently published study adds to the debate over whether governments should depend on shooting and poisoning wolves to protect caribou, said lead author Jonah Keim. "It's probably one of the most challenging conservation issues in the Northern Hemisphere," said Keim, an independent researcher based in New York state. Woodland car
Toronto police say they've made an arrest in what they've previously described as a suspected hate crime on the city's Island. Investigators have alleged a man and a woman were walking to the Island's ferry docks on June 5 when a disagreement broke out between them and a group of other people. Police allege a man from the second group made homophobic comments, and two men from the group assaulted the male victim leaving him with significant injuries. Elijah McGibbon, 24, was arrested today and c
WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — President Joe Biden announced Saturday that Champ, the older of the family’s two dogs, had died “peacefully at home.” The German shepherd was 13. “He was our constant, cherished companion during the last 13 years and was adored by the entire Biden family,” Biden and first lady Jill Biden said in a statement posted to the president’s official Twitter account. The Bidens are spending the weekend at their home in Wilmington, Delaware. The Bidens got Champ from a breeder afte

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Iran's hard-line judiciary chief won a landslide victory in the country's presidential election, a vote that both propelled the supreme leader's protege into Tehran's highest civilian position and saw the lowest turnout in the Islamic Republic's history. The election of Ebrahim Raisi, already sanctioned by the U.S. in part over his involvement in the mass execution of thousands of political prisoners in 1988, became more of a coronation after his strongest comp

Investigators say they responded to a report Thursday night of a man being run over by a truck in Dublin Shore, about 20 kilometres west of Lunenburg. Police say the truck had fled the scene
TORONTO — Canada has hit two of the vaccination targets government officials have previously said were necessary for the easing of public health restrictions imposed due to COVID-19. An independent website founded by a University of Saskatchewan student and tracking federal and provincial vaccine data says just over 20 per cent of eligible Canadians — those 12 years old and above — are now fully vaccinated. And just over 75 per cent of eligible Canadians have received at least one dose of a COVI
