Autumn officially begins this week, all while Saskatchewan is dealing with the fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. The highly infectious Delta variant continues to be an issue in the province and children under the age of 12 are at risk due to being ineligible for any of the COVID-19 vaccines. CBC Saskatchewan spoke to Dr. Ayisha Kurji, a pediatrician in Saskatoon and an assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of Saskatchewan, to find out the risk levels of classic fall activities
Ottawa reported 62 more cases of COVID-19 and one new death on Sunday. Unvaccinated people are 11 times more likely to get COVID-19. Today's Ottawa update Ottawa Public Health (OPH) reported 62 more COVID-19 cases and one death on Sunday. The last time health officials reported a death in the nation's capital was Sept. 10.

DEL RIO, Texas/CIUDAD ACUÑA, Mexico (Reuters) -U.S. border agents began expelling plane-loads of mostly Haitian migrants from a large makeshift camp they had set up after wading across the Rio Grande separating Mexico and the United States, with repatriation flights arriving in Haiti on Sunday. The sprawling camp under the international bridge attracted more than 12,000 migrants at one point and marked a new challenge for U.S. authorities, who have sought to reduce the flow of Central Americans and now hundreds of Haitians who have fled rampant poverty, gang violence and seemingly non-stop natural disasters back home.

NEW YORK (AP) — “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” is the top film at the box office for the third straight weekend, but the muted reception for Clint Eastwood's “Cry Macho” suggests older moviegoers still aren't as eager to return to theaters. Marvel's “Chang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, collected an estimated $21.7 million in ticket sales over the weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. The Walt Disney Co. release has held better in t

BERLIN (AP) — Erling Haaland scored twice as Borussia Dortmund emerged with a hard-fought 4-2 win over Union Berlin in the Bundesliga on Sunday. The 21-year-old Norwegian grabbed Dortmund’s second goal in the 24th minute and secured the result in the 83rd just after Union scored to set up what looked like a nervy finale. The visitors made a good start in Dortmund, where Taiwo Awoniyi had a first-minute goal ruled out for offside. There was nothing Union could do about Raphaël Guerreiro’s opening

LAKE WORTH, Texas (AP) — A military training jet crashed Sunday in a neighborhood near Fort Worth, Texas, injuring the two pilots and damaging three homes but not seriously hurting anyone on the ground, authorities said. Both pilots managed to eject from the plane before it crashed in Lake Worth, which is just west of Fort Worth, authorities said at a news conference. “This incident could have been much worse knowing that this plane went down in a residential area,” Lake Worth Fire Chief Ryan Ar
LONDON — For all the goals scored — including a record 266 for Tottenham — it was the game Jimmy Greaves missed out on that was an enduring disappointment for one of England's greatest strikers. Sustaining a leg injury that required 14 stiches in the final group stage match at the 1966 World Cup, Greaves lost his place to Geoff Hurst. In an era before substitutes were allowed, there was no way back into the lineup and it was Hurst's hat trick in the final that won England's only title. Hurst rem
Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé has given himself a year to fix staffing shortages in the province's beleaguered health-care system, he told the Coalition Avenir Québec youth caucus this weekend. Dubé said he wants the network to undergo "mammoth" changes that would reform several areas, at the meeting in Quebec City on Saturday. He said his intention is to table a health care bill that would include ways to attract nurses back to the public system, which now has about 4,000 nursing positi

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska remains one of only two states that haven't legalized cannabis use in some form, but the industry has already launched a lobbying group in the state to help influence the rules that will regulate the industry. John Cartier, president of the Nebraska Cannabis Association said it expects some form of marijuana legalization to be approved in the state in coming years, so it makes sense to be prepared, according to the Lincoln Journal Star. “It is not unreasonable to pr
The Canadian Council of Imams is calling for the federal Conservative candidate for Central Nova to resign from the race, saying Steven Cotter has refused to engage with them on issues of Islamophobia, racism and discrimination. In a statement released Saturday evening, the group said that although Cotter issued a public apology on Sept. 5 for past Islamophobic posts on his Facebook page, his refusal to have a continued discussion with them makes them question the sincerity of his apology. It sa
MONTREAL — A second-half surge propelled CF Montreal to a 2-0 win Sunday over the visiting Chicago Fire FC. Romell Quioto scored for Montreal (10-8-7), with Chicago's Carlos Terán adding an own-goal to Montreal's second straight MLS victory. Chicago (6-14-5) dictated the tempo early by testing Montreal's back line and pinning them in the defensive half of the pitch. Montreal goalkeeper James Pantemis made two key saves at the 20-minute mark on a point-blank header by Mauricio Pineda and then a t

No one was injured in the incident, said John Manconi, general manager of the city's transportation services department. Two axles on the train's second car came
