The Canadian Space Agency has posted satellite photos that dramatically illustrate how post-tropical storm Fiona changed Prince Edward Island's coastline. "This comparison of satellite images of Prince Edward Island and the Northumberland Strait, taken on Aug. 21 and Sept. 25, 2022, shows the extent to which the extreme wind and wave action of the storm has churned up the seafloor and eroded the coastline," the agency said on Twitter Tuesday. The space agency said the images were from the Europe
TORONTO — Ontario will need more than 138,000 new workers in the public sector, long-term care, home care and child care over the next five years and may need to increase wages to attract enough people, the province's financial watchdog says. The Financial Accountability Office released a report Wednesday on public sector compensation and said Ontario is already facing high vacancy rates in those sectors -- 8.5 per cent this year in nursing and residential care -- and will need to both address t
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The lawyer for Sirhan Sirhan, who assassinated presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy in 1968, on Wednesday asked a judge to free him and played a recording of her client saying he is now dedicated to nonviolence and wants only to “return home to my brother and live the rest of our days in peace.” Sirhan, 78, has spent 54 years in prison.

Every morning Denise O'Connor looks out from her home in Lytton at the burned-out remains of the village. She's just one of a limited number of the village's estimated 210 residents who have returned to the community following a wildfire that burned the community in the summer of 2021. O'Connor is vying with Edith Loring-Kuhanga and Willie Nelson, the village's two other candidates for mayor, for a chance to lead the community through the next phase of the village's rebuilding after Mayor Jan Po

It was a frigid Sunday evening at the Catholic Newman Center in Salt Lake City when the priest warned parishioners who had gathered after Mass that their right to private confessions was in jeopardy. A new law would break that sacred bond, the priest said, and directed the parishioners to sign a one-page form letter on their way out. “I/We Oppose HB90,” began the letter, stacked next to pre-addressed envelopes. “HB90 is an improper interference of the government into the practice of religion in

A libertarian group in California filed a legal challenge to President Joe Biden’s plan for student debt cancellation on Tuesday, calling it an illegal overreach that would increase state tax burdens for some Americans who get their debt forgiven. The lawsuit, believed to be the first targeting Biden’s plan, was filed by the Pacific Legal Foundation, a Sacramento law firm. It was filed in federal court in Indiana, one of several states that plan to tax any student debt canceled by Biden’s plan.
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden on Wednesday warned oil and gas companies against increasing prices for consumers as Hurricane Ian lashed Florida’s southwest coast. “Do not, let me repeat, do not use this as an excuse to raise gasoline prices or gouge the American people,” Biden said at the start of a conference on hunger in America and just hours before the hurricane made landfall as a massive Category 4 storm. Biden said that the hurricane “provides no excuse for price increases at the p
Every Sunday afternoon a group of bears sets out on a nature walk in a different part of the city. Except, they're not the kind with big teeth and claws. They're men who identify with the term commonly used in the gay community to describe bigger men with a lot of body hair. Alex Johnston started the "Outdoor Bears" group, as they call themselves, five years ago to meet others who enjoy outdoor activities. It started with regular outings to skate on the Rideau Canal. But when COVID hit, the grou
Flipping through her high school yearbook doesn't spark nostalgia in Janaye Majer. "Memories I don't miss at all," she said of her time at Queen Elizabeth Secondary. Majer, who is Black, says she was bullied and targeted with racial slurs at the Surrey, B.C., high school. Over the years, she says she was subjected to the N-word and told "really derogatory racial things about myself." "I was told to kill myself and just very terrible things that I had to go through." Majer says, in her case, teac
OTTAWA — Azin Rezaeian kneels on the ground and screams "Say her name" each time she snips off a chunk of her long black hair. A crowd around her shouts back "Mahsa Amini," the 22-year-old woman whose death in Iran has sparked protests like this one around the world. Rezaeian, who moved to Ottawa about a year ago from Iran, shared the video of herself to draw attention to what she said are human rights abuses against women in the country. It was taken at a rally last week in the capital, one of
The Canadian dollar strengthened against its U.S. counterpart on Wednesday as the Bank of England's move to support the bond market wrong-footed some investors, with the currency pulling back from its weakest level in more than two years. Wall Street rebounded strongly following its recent sell-off, while U.S. Treasury yields tumbled and the U.S. dollar lost ground against a basket of major currencies after the BoE said it would buy long-dated British bonds in a move aimed at restoring financial stability. "This Bank of England move caught everybody off guard," said Erik Bregar, director, FX & precious metals risk management at Silver Gold Bull.
BURNT ISLANDS, N.L. — Paula Keeping pointed to the window that was once her son's bedroom. It lay on top of the crumpled remains of her former house, a mess of wood siding and household items in the middle of a road. The debris was piled metres away from where the house stood last week before post-tropical storm Fiona blasted the southwestern Newfoundland community of Burnt Islands. "I figure my kitchen is out where my porch is too," she said. "It's devastating. Just in disbelief." Keeping said
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Hurricane Ian lashed Florida's southwest coast Wednesday with heavy winds and rain after strengthening to a catastrophic storm that was likely to deliver devastating floods. The center of the massive Category 4 storm lingered offshore for hours, which was likely to mean more rain and damage from a hurricane that was trudging on a track that would have it making landfall north of the heavily populated Fort Myers area. Catastrophic storm surges could push 12 to 18 feet
