For the first time, a free shuttle bus service will ferry nature lovers to some of the most popular spots in Gatineau Park during the summer. Saturday marked the start of the pilot project, which will run every weekend until Aug. 28. Regular shuttles have operated every fall for a three-week period, and that will still continue. "We're making Gatineau Park more accessible, more equitable for people who either don't own a private car or don't have access to one or don't want to drive," said Tobi
HALIFAX — All Nova Scotians aged 50 and older will be able to access second COVID-19 boosters by next week, though public health recommends people under 70 wait until the fall before getting another shot. The province decided to expand booster dose eligibility on July 8 to people aged 50 to 69 because some Nova Scotians had been asking for a fourth dose, deputy chief medical officer of health Dr. Shelley Deeks told reporters Monday. "Public health is recommending that people in this age group ac
When the Russian tank turned its turret toward Hlib Stryzhko's position and fired, he thought his life was ending in a violent flash of light. "I was aware that … I could die, lose my health or become an invalid — but I was ready to do it for Ukraine," he told CBC News. The corporal in Ukraine's marines had been part of a group of hundreds of soldiers holding off a massively larger Russian force that was attacking the Illich iron and steel works plant in the northern part of the besieged city of

Wade. The court's ruling on Friday lets states decide for themselves whether to allow abortion. California is controlled by Democrats who support abortion rights, so
O'Leary hosted its first multiculturalism day event on Monday. The event showcased the language, culture and food of western P.E.I. residents who are originally from across Canada and around the world. "It is really, I think, going to let us feel like a family," said Lihong Ling, who moved to P.E.I. from China with her husband Ling Jie Liu in 2019.

JOHNSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — When President Joe Biden applauded a decision by Intel Corp. to build a $20 billion semiconductor operation on “1,000 empty acres of land” in Ohio, it didn't sit well with Tressie Corsi. The 85-year-old woman has lived on 7 acres of that land since she and her late husband, Paul, built a house there 50 years ago. They raised four children there and welcomed multiple generations of grandchildren and great-grandchildren, including some who lived right next door. “You can see

HALIFAX — A high-profile sex scandal involving Prince Andrew is prompting a school in Dartmouth, N.S., to change its name. As of Aug. 1, Prince Andrew High School will be renamed Woodlawn High School, to reflect the name of the street and subdivision where the school is located. The school was named after Prince Andrew in 1960, the year he was born, but a recent sex scandal involving a 17-year-old girl and disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein led the school to distance itself from the royal.

As Ellen DeGeneres hosted the final episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show in May, she shared how the series — a 19-season juggernaut of bum-shaking, prize-giving and celebrity-scaring — first came to air. "Twenty-five years ago, they cancelled my sitcom because they didn't want a lesbian to be in prime time once a week. And I said, 'OK, then I'll be on daytime every day,'" DeGeneres said. The ending was bittersweet. DeGeneres's reputation as a fun-loving do-gooder had been questioned in the wake o

Investors in ether and its troubled twin stETH are nervously anticipating a crypto milestone: The merge. That's the name for a major upgrade of the Ethereum blockchain network upon which many crypto projects are built, aimed at making it leaner, meaner and cleaner. The merge was supposed to happen years ago but has been delayed several times, with developers most recently axing plans to push the button in June, unnerving investors who began to fear it might never see the light of day.
