A look at some of Biden's comments in a news conference that stretched for nearly two hours: PANDEMIC BIDEN on COVID-19: “I didn’t overpromise. I have probably outperformed what anybody thought would happen.” THE FACTS: That's a
Quebecers with disabilities are asking the government to let them access PCR tests, saying many of them are not capable of using rapid tests without assistance. In an open letter published this week, 55 community groups that work or support Quebecers with disabilities are calling on the government to change its policy around COVID-19 testing.

Flossey is living a wonderful life on a beautiful farm in Millbrook, Ontario. It's what is knows an "ethical farm" where cows have space to roam and graze instead of being kept indoors for most of their lives. Flossey's farm has vast expanses of lush, green grass, rolling hills, ponds full of fresh water, and forested areas for shade. This is life as it should be for these gentle creatures. Dave is a farm hand who often helps out with some of the chores and animal care. He decided to take a break on this warm, summer day and he took a seat on the hill overlooking the pasture.
