TORONTO — Excitement and jubilation after Canada scored its first-ever goal at the Men's World Cup gave way to dismay after Croatia came back with a string of goals to end the team's hopes of reaching the tournament's knockout round. Fans initially screamed, jumped out of their seats and embraced each other at a sold-out watch party in downtown Toronto Sunday as Alphonso Davies scored the historic goal. The star winger and Bayern Munich player headed the ball home to give Canada an initial 1-0 l
AL RAYYAN, Qatar — Croatia booted Canada out of the World Cup on Sunday, then kicked it when it was down. While the Canadians still have one game left to play in Group F, Sunday's 4-1 loss to Croatia ended their hopes of advancing to the knockout round. John Herdman's men will go home after facing No. 22 Morocco on Thursday. They will hope to leave on a winning note. But at 0-2-0 at the bottom of their group, the 41st-ranked Canadians can finish with no more than three points and cannot catch Mo

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Business groups are increasing the pressure on lawmakers to intervene and block a railroad strike before next month’s deadline in the stalled contract talks. A coalition of more than 400 business groups sent a letter to Congressional leaders Monday urging them to step into the stalled talks because of fears about the devastating potential impact of a strike that could force many businesses to shut down if they can't get the rail deliveries they need. Commuter railroads and Amt
A cyber attack has disabled online learning and left telephone and email services down, Durham District School Board said Sunday. Literacy tests have been cancelled for Monday and most student chromebooks will not work, the board said. In a letter to parents and guardians, the school board said it was first made aware of the "cyber-incident" on Friday and that IT teams have been working throughout the weekend to restore the services affected.

NEW YORK (AP) — “Gaslighting” — behavior that's mind manipulating, grossly misleading, downright deceitful — is Merriam-Webster's word of the year. Lookups for the word on merriam-webster.com increased 1,740% in 2022 over the year before. But something else happened. There wasn't a single event that drove significant spikes in curiosity, as it usually goes with the chosen word of the year. The gaslighting was pervasive. “It’s a word that has risen so quickly in the English language, and especial
British Columbia has asked First Nations if they want old-growth forests set aside from logging, allowing time for long-term planning of conservation and sustainable development, but it has yet to fund the process on a large scale, advocates say. In the meantime, some of the biggest and oldest trees are being cut down. Several years before the B.C. government launched the process last November to defer logging in old-growth forests at risk of permanent biodiversity loss, Ahousaht First Nation wa
AL RAYYAN, Qatar — Alphonso Davies scored against Croatia on Sunday to give Canada its first-ever goal at the men's World Cup. The goal came 67 seconds into the game. Canada's goalkeeper Milan Borjan set up the play with a long goal kick that found Cyle Larin down field. Larin headed the ball to Tajon Buchanan on the right flank. A cross from Buchanan then found Davies flying through the air and the Bayern Munich star headed the ball past Croatian keeper Dominik Livaković to give Canada a 1-0 le
WASHINGTON (AP) — “We the People” is Jill Biden's holiday theme with White House decorations designed for “the people” to see themselves in the tree ornaments, mantel displays, mirrors and do-it-yourself creations that have turned the mansion's public spaces into a winter wonderland. “The soul of our nation is, and always has been, ‘We the People,’” the first lady says in remarks prepared for a Monday afternoon event and released by the White House. “And that is what inspired this year’s White H
BOURNEMOUTH, England (AP) — Bournemouth announced the appointment of Gary O’Neil as its manager on a permanent basis on Sunday. O’Neil signed an initial 1 1/2 year deal with the option of a further 12-month extension. The 39-year-old O'Neil had been interim manager since Scott Parker was fired in August after Bournemouth lost 9-0 at Liverpool, which tied the record for the heaviest defeat in the Premier League’s 30-year history.

About 600 trees and shrubs are being planted in Pinhey Forest this fall after the derecho windstorm six months ago felled great swaths of trees in the area.

Hydro One provided funding to the NCC for the tree planting project. It came after tre

(Reuters) -Wall Street's main indexes fell on Monday as protests in major Chinese cities against strict COVID-19 policies sparked concerns over economic growth and dragged commodity-linked shares lower, while Apple slid on worries about a hit to iPhone production. Shares of the tech giant fell 2% and weighed the most on the benchmark S&P 500 index, as growing worker unrest at the world's biggest iPhone factory in China fanned fears of a deeper hit to the already constrained production of higher-end models. Rare protests in major Chinese cities over the weekend against the country's strict zero-COVID curbs have hit growth expectations in the world's second-largest economy.
SHANGHAI (AP) — Protesters angered by strict anti-virus measures called for China’s powerful leader to resign, an unprecedented rebuke as authorities in at least eight cities struggled to suppress demonstrations Sunday that represent a rare direct challenge to the ruling Communist Party. Police using pepper spray drove away demonstrators in Shanghai who called for Xi Jinping to step down and an end to one-party rule, but hours later people rallied again in the same spot. Police again broke up th
